I promise not to be angry with you guys this time, so email away! Thank god the game marks all the viewpoints now, so that's not an issue.
Anyway, the sequel makes the first game look like a pretty piece of filler leading to this game. This game is not flawless, I think the free running took a major step back in many ways and the combat is still a work in progress, but the story is nearly perfectly displayed and the missions and side stuff are almost RPG quality.
This game displaying superb voice acting and character models, just like The Ballad of Gay Tony and Modern Warfare 2, it's clear that these are the standars for graphics and characters in future games. The gaming drought this year was well worth the wait.
And finally, AC III should be a great little Industrial Age London or Tokyo romp.
