There are a few side missions that involve tombs of previous Assassins, where its mostly just parkour and platforming challenges and puzzles. A nice break from going around the city. The sword combat so far has been the same song and dance with lots of countering and mashing the attack button. Maybe you guys have more finesse with it, but the swordplay has never been a high point of the game for me. Hopefully when I get my hands on different weapons like halberds, there will be more variety in the combat.

My time with this game got interrupted by L4D2 though, but I'll get back to it soon, hopefully.

Lol, been playing it since I got it. Awesome game so far, much better than the first. The missions aren't garbage (the ones I have played at least), the story seems better... and the best part of all.... YOU DO NOT PLAY AS DESMOND EVERY 2 FREAKING SECONDS! I couldn't freaking stand that in the original game...

*As Altair* Run 3 feet
*EXIT ANIMUS*
*Walk (VERY ****ING SLOWLY) as Desmond to have some terrible conversation and then sleep*
*WAKE UP*
*Walk (VERY ****ING SLOWLY) as Desmond to have some terrible conversation that added nothing to the game then enter the Animus, only to play as Altair for 3 minutes before exiting again.

Do all of the missions consist of 5 things again?

I hated that in the first all the missions in each city were practically the same. Pickpocket, eavesdrop, collect flags, save some woman, kill some guy, then new city, same exact ****.

The framerate on PS3 for the original was HORRIBLE. It would go down to 15fps at times.

Well the best thing in the new one is... you don't HAVE to do any of those crappy side missions. This one has no eavesdropping sidequests (from what I have seen at least)... mostly assassinate this guy, beat the hell out of this guy cheating on his wife (and this time when you beat them up, you don't have to follow them for a million years until they are alone!), races (haven't tried these yet), courier missions, etc. Pickpocketing is not a side mission now, you can just do it freely for money.

Nice, so you'd say it's not as monotonous as the first?

I played for about an hour and half and I am just not getting into it. I liked how it started since it picked up right from where the first one finished, but overall it feels exactly the same, oops I ran to close to these guys go find a haystack to hide in. At least at the moment you can get away from them without hiding so you don't necessarily need to hide. It feels weird that you aren't an assassin right from the start. I am guessing you become one eventually. Now you have to loot your victims so you can get money to buy healing. Still though I am not sure about it. I have to give it more time I guess cause I am feeling a bit bored with it or maybe I just want to be here on my PC playing DA:O more .

The AI doesn't detect you as harshly as it did in the original (in the original if you ran for a second it would send them into a frenzy for me lol).

You do not start off as an assassin, but that is the point. Listen closer to the storyline of Desmond and you will know more of why they did it this way.

You do not have to loot victims or pick pockets for money. Actually those are the worst ways of getting money. Finishing quests gives you a good amount and later on there is some extra sim-lite stuff you can do to make a ton of money.
