It is so god damn frustrating. You can't get 100% unless you conform to their stupid side objectives. They are tedious and unnecessary and all they do is make the game less flexible overall and give you less choice.
It is so annoying when you crawl your ass through one of those stupidly long missions where you can't enter combat and you get caught right at the last minute or you don't realise you were caught at all in the first place and then have to start from the beginning again.
I mean isn't the game tedious enough with the ludicrously easy difficulty, and six million chests to find that all contain low levels of cash, with no real reward?
I mean why the hell would you take one of the best parts about the first Assassin's Creed away? I used to enjoy looking for different ways of completing a mission. Now there is no point even looking because I know I won't be able to get 100% sync if I do.
