Okay, so I've beaten the game.... Not once throughout the entire game have I figured out how to recruit assassins or make any money.
I have only one assassin.
Next to no money.
And I don't understand it.... They changed so much in this game and choose to explain none of it.
And what's with the overpowered enemies? Most of these guys become blade fodder but there are a couple that block every attack, every counter, every attempt at disarming or breaking defence... What gives? I'm left with no choice but to shoot them, and when I've got three or more in a group I have no choice but to run.
Not to mention the sync objectives... Are some of these even possible? How can I throw people into the water when there's literally no button to grab and throw people anymore? Along with MANY others I don't understand.
And why don't liberation missions (or any side missions) get anything on the map?
I accept a mission and I have no idea where I'm supposed to go.
Assassination missions and the destination for them use the SAME icon.
Liberation missions? Also the same thing.
Are the random events from revelations gone as well? And what about hunting? It's so irksome I don't even want to do it.
There aren't any map markers to keep track of snares so I barely even use those.
And animals are so few it's not even worth it... I mean, sure it makes it more realistic, but I'm not particularly ever in the mood for hunting for an hour with barely any pay-out.
And dear god... Why do we still get forced to deal with hats and hoods? We've asked for a toggle on them for just about every game so far and get nothing.
I absolutely LOVE all of the outfits in this game... But the hats just ruin them all.
I even went as far as buying the deluxe edition, and I still don't really understand anything or get to enjoy the game.
The story feels so linear and forced it's just unbearable... Ugh, so many issues with this game.
It feels like there were too many good ideas and not enough time spent actually working them all out.
And I leave with one last question: Why do guards keep attacking me when I'm incognito and just running? Not doing anything illegal, just running to my goal, and next thing you know... I'm being shot at.
Well, technically I have more questions but I can't think of the rest at the moment.
