I for one find this game too hard in very annoying ways. Maybe its that I suck but I have played all the other AC games. This game has too much stealth in it and it seems that they give no room for creativity on solving that given mission. You have to do it EXACTLY the way they planned it to go down or you get caught and have to start over. I have played some missions as many as 12 times!! Never getting it right. Then I will goggle a walkthrough and see the way THEY want me to do the mission and then I get through it.
I love this game as I live in Boston and the fact that it takes place here back in the 1700s is about the coolest thing I have ever seen in ANY video game. I now walk around the city looking at it in a whole new way!! Its like a time machine for everything that is right outside my door!
But they have ruined the game play in all missions involving stealth in my opinion and taken all the fun out of the game. Moreover its a HUGE departure from all the previous games in this regard and I think many fans of the serious will find this disappointing.
Guess I will get back to reading more walkthroughs so I dont have to do the same stupid creeping around in weeds 12 times in a row
