This game has been sitting in my to-do list for quite some time. I got it as a freebie from Uplay, and to be quite frank, that may have been too expensive for this clunker. I suppose if you really love the parkour mechanics of the other games you'll be entertained by this, but I am long-since over jumping from towers into bales of hay. With a handful of naval missions, some of the seeds of the vastly superior AC IV are here, but, to mix my metaphors, the mechanics still a bit half-baked (wait you can bake seeds, so maybe that metaphor works... or is it a simile).
The story is so dull and pointless. It feels very constrained and linear. There a many side quests and missions but they aren't very fun. I skipped all the gambling, hunting, crafting and homestead building; all of which felt like such a boring waste of time. I never upgraded my character and was able to finish the game without any problems. And I hated all the modern day sequences. Again, pointless.
