In all fairness, I wonder how many people in that era in that location learned how to swim. Still, I agree.
If you read the entire Game Informer article (which I linked to in the other thread
) it sounds like they paid a lot of attention to the complaints on the first game and sought to fix them all. The gameplay is misson structured like GTA, rather than the open investigations, which I kind of think I might miss, but... sounds good anyway.
As long as the game immerses you in 15th century Italy I am a happy man. The main reason the first game is one of my absolute favorites is because of its incredible immersion.
