I think this game was more of a filler, at any rate, to show what happened to Alta´r and Ezio, to end their stories and have a clean beginning for Connor. And I think it told their stories wonderfully, so it got the job done.

I just played it because I've played all the ones before.

AC1 was ok.
AC2 was the best so far.
AC Brotherhood wasn't nearly as good as AC2.
AC Revelations is by far the worst one.

I mean no-one cares about the's too complicated and illogical. Why couldn't they just leave this Animus-Future-Templar-Visions-Desmond-General-Confusion out and set a normal game in the past?!

People do care about the story. Just because it's confusing for you doesn't mean it's confusing for everyone. I commend the series for not shoving retcons into Desmonds story. If you read all the documents in AC 1 you can tell what Desmonds story is going to be about and how it's leading somewhere.

I like all the past stories, they serve as the main gameplay, additional story and character additions, and they serve a way for Desmond to learn how to be an Assassin. I never got why people think a non linear story is automatically bad. By the same token I never understood why people think non linear stories are automatically good either. This story just strikes my fancy really. I am all for good gameply but for me if I don't like the story I would not be getting these games on release day.

But as far as overall elements go I'd say this is about the same as Brotherhood in terms of quality. I think AC 2 was my favorite overall because of it's long and compelling story. AC 1 still sticks out in my mind as being the weakest with the repetition, amount of collectibles, and very clunky combat. But as a whole I feel the Assassin's Creed series is very strong overall, and I think AC 3 will probably be the best by a long shot.

I thought Assassin's Creed 2 was the best, followed by this, then Brotherhood, then Assassin's Creed 1. Revelations had the best ending by far, though. Can't wait for Assassin's Creed 3

I thought and all of the AC games are quite fun. The story is compelling and very interesting. Do I enjoy all aspects of all the games? Certainly no, but for the most part they have put together a great series, and added new bits to keep it relatively fresh. Didn't like the den/tower defense? All you had to do was keep your awareness at a minimum. Really wasn't that difficult to do. And once you got your den master to master assassin that den would never be attacked.

If you don't enjoy the series, then don't buy it. For me, I'm not a huge fan of the multiplayer, but it keeps me interested for a bit. I had some fun with it, but now I'm about tapped out and am trying to finish up that last few achievements so I can move onto another game.

I thought this game was pretty good. I didn't care for the Desmond missions or the multiplayer, but other than that, the gameplay was fine and the story was great. The bombs were pretty awesome and so were the associated achievements.

the Desmond missions with the stupid blocks were one of the worst things i've ever had to do in a game, absolutely terrible. den defense was almost equally as awful, the Altair missions lame as well.
basically the main story was good, bomb crafting was cool.
everything else sucked.

I still think AC 1 is worse... I liked this game a lot still, I do think Brotherhood and AC II were better but this isn't a terrible game, the tower defence thing is really stupid though and is fun fore maybe 4-5 times at most but then it gets boring. I like the feeling from that game though, the looks at night are really special, I have the artwork book that came with the special edition and once you read it you can see differences between districts, not as clearly as Brotherhood but it's still not hard to see if you look more closely. One thing I REALLY HATED though was when there were a couple of achievements glitched, buying all those damn books wasn't easy because they are expensive as hell, and then for some stupid glitch I have to play it again just for the books.. And I don't even get to read them, there's no text in them like Skyrim or something, so they're completely worthless on top of that. I looked through the achievement list and knew I could do all achievements within one playthrough, until stuff glitched on me and had to spend another 10 hours or so waiting for coins... Oh well, still liked this game, the Multiplayer too although since I played the multiplayer so much in Brotherhood I was relieved to see this gtime the achievements on it were much easier... The latest Multiplayer DLC is bullshit though I've played 20 games alrfeady and not once did I come across a new map...

I personally thought AC1 was worst while looking back, just cause there's like nothing to do.

BUT, ACR was probably last/2nd to last for me.

I feel like they needed to add all these defense type games since Ezio was old and leader of the Assassins, so it made you play as if that's what he would do.

The loss of territory was a bit obnoxious too, but just keep your notoriety down and that shouldn't be an issue. It's tough when everything raises it so much, but between heralds and witnesses, and getting high level assassins to guard them, it isnt a big deal.

Ubisoft needed basically end this story line, so playing as 2 old assassins shouldn't have the same style as playing as young ones.

Even is ACR was the worst of the series, it was still super fun!

AC1 is not the worst. It's the starting point where the series evolved from and really, an experiment in game design. They had to completely build a new game engine from the ground up for it. It was a work of genius and the later games only built on that.

ACR... I had a blast with it. It was not as frustrating as the earlier games and I liked the story.

This is a series I have a hard time picking an order for. AC2 by and far is the best of the series but the rest of the games I hold all on equal footing.

I'd only slag the Den Defense in ACR, that part I could have done without.

Ac I and II were the best so far. I really look forward to get my hand on Ac3. There will be multiplayer i just hope that's better than in Revelations or Brotherhood. Revelations were worst of all. Too much buy this and that stuff.

The gameplay was brilliant, the Hidden Hookblade was a nice addition, the Tower Defense was a nice interesting turn to take you away from all the bloodshed from time to time and all the collectebles gives you some alternative objectives.

I agree with you to some extent. I have to disagree with Desmond's memory sequences however. The first person puzzle simulation seems to be a bit frustrating in my end. Though I finished them all, I can't shake the bad taste it has left behind in my mouth. The fact that we got to learn more about Desmond is great, just minus the irrelevant FPS puzzle and you got yourself a masterpiece. Playable flashbacks would have been better imo.

And multiplayer...well all of the above is all I got to say. Multiplayer specific achievements, unbalanced progression system, online passes and the lack of players easily breaks this game for me.

Lets get back to what made this game good with AC3, and get rid of these stupid new additions. Animus Island/Desmond memories are cool, bomb crafting is cool, all this other new $#!* can go back where it came from.
I like many things about this game, but I will agree that I hated the den defense. It wasn't too hard once you figured out what to do, but there was little to no guidence prior to learning it yourself. I actually put the game down for several months because of this.
