Just my perspective on the game.. I can really sum it up in one sentence..lol.. very pretty and very repetitious. The game is full of things that have massive potential.. and not many things that take advantage of that potential.. it looks great.. but there is no character development. No new gear.. some weapons you get a long the way that really just don't stand out at all. The same tasks over and over with even the same lines from different people.. you'll save 100 people from guards.. and all 100 of them will say like one of 3 things.. it get's old. the swordplay is very fluid, as is the movement.. but it's also repetitious. even with the different kills.. after the first few levels of doing it, it gets old. there's nothing new.. no new kills you learn along the way.. barring like one counter kill. no real sense of leveling up.. It's a game you can enjoy if you just want to relax.. look around and kill some people.. kind of like gta.. or flight simulator. you can either start all holy hell.. or just fly around in your helicopter.. but just like gta4.. it's boring and falls very short of the mark. I find myself trying to just "get the little things out of the way" so I can enjoy the main quest at this point. but all the little things are just the same little things over and over again.. collect these flag.. pickpocket this person.. kill this person.. Honesty some of the reasons people give you for needing your help are just dumb.. like the writers gave up..lol.. So in summation: It's pretty.. but boring.. fun to play if you want a nice looking, relaxing game. That you can kill people in...lol The views can be simply amazing in this game. don't let me sell that short. I give it a 7 /10. mostly for graphics and fluid movement.
