Was pretty amazing. Glad I picked this up after being disappointed with ME2. It seemed like I played it forever before reaching the end, and many times I couldn't stop playing it because I thought I was near the end... but wasn't. No complaints though. There were 1 or 2 missions that were a bit tedious, I think to drag out the length of the game, but you still got to stab 2 guys in the face or throat at once and kill the other 2 within seconds over and over which never seemed to get old. Story left me wanting them to have Assassin's Creed 3 available yesterday. Great ending. The best thing is, they actually fixed all the problems with AC1. It doesn't seem repetitive anymore, there's actual direction in the story, and it seems to keep you interested much more. The last one seemed TOO open-world, which IMO can be a bad thing. I'm the type that wants to know where to go- and don't want to ride a horse for 5 minutes to get there. There aren't anymore endless horse rides, and you rarely use them now, but it's kind of fun when you do. I was really disappointed with Assassin's Creed 1, so for this to be so great seems gratifying. It's basically what I wanted the first one to be.
