This game promises and could be so much, but the story is as dry and dull as a 1990's history book and the character and dialogue as deep as the those found on My little Pony. I find myself bored doing the pointless tasks that apparently hinder the Templar. I don't even know who these people are that I am killing, nor how their deaths really affect anything. And what is the The assassin's Creed? It just seems like some kid that found out about about his bad ass uncle who told him his father was an assassin. So it's just one family, who openly assassinate templar members and are not killed.
That's my wing over. Now that the steams gone, I can say - the graphics are great and the attention to the environment is stunning, which is why I think everything else suffers.
