A good game where it is better to be stealth and flighty than it is to brawl. This game has great graphics and fun missions as you roam three different kingdoms. I like the fact that you must scale tall buildings to get location information from your missions. Though at times it could be a pain and time consuming, the view from up top is worth the work. The combat can be sluggish at times. Hint: it is better to play defense and counter against more experienced guards and soldiers than it is to attack. Make sure you have plenty of throwing knives. The drawbacks I found with this game were 1) the missions became repetitive. You had to complete 3 investigations before you could carry out the hit, and the hits were pretty much the same just with more skilled soldiers to take on. 2) the load times was long and sometimes froze. I had to restart my PS3 about 6 times because the game would freeze on me. 3) The random people on the streets became more than a nuisance as the game progresses. Watch out for the crazies who for some reason are allowed to walk the streets. They will push you into guards and blow your cover. Also the women beggars are a pain. They can slow you up as you are tracking an unsuspecting victim or trip you up as you are trying to get away. Overall, this game is worth checking out. Took me 3 days to beat it.
