I'd like to say I'm looking forward to it because I've liked all the previous games but after having to kind of force myself to finish 3 I'd be lying if I said I'm not starting to feel a bit burned out on the franchise. Ubi needs to give it a rest but obviously that's not happening.

I had never touched an Assassin's Creed game until recently. Just finished the first game and found it some of the most repetitive gameplay I have ever experienced.

I know the second Assassin's Creed is supposedly a lot better, but I'm struggling to build up any enthusiasm to play it.

@jordanmarsden you really should play AC2 it gets way better there actually feels like theres a story to it then brotherhood makes it a bit better :P

anyway im very dissapointed with AC3 not to mention really buggy -.- ugh if they had just kept the story with haytham it would of been ok but no they ruined it either way i will decide if i get it till i get more info on game and more on the story =/ curious how you guys dont have more users btw

@jordanmarsden I wasn't a huge fan of the first one - horribly repetitive. But, the second one was pleasantly surprising. Really good fun. :)

3rd one is really good, but glitchy. It could use another patch. No frustrating glitches, but vibrating dropped guns, and dead guys' bodies shaking violently are some glitches I'd like to see fixed. The only major glitch I had let me get away w/ any crime, since a troop of redcoats was unresponsive, which meant I could pickpocket them for an hour. Good fun.
