A great addition to the Assassin's Creed series.

What I liked: Graphics and voice acting was spot on. Rome is absolutely gorgeous. The storyline thus far has been pleasing and definitely has me disliking the Borgia family.
The combat system remains simplified to some degree, adding the "complexity" of dual wielding, which really is not that complex. The kills to guards are AWESOME. For some reason, I cannot get enough of stabbing some guard in the face with a sword. That and slashing the mounted guards off of their horses... always makes for a great scene.
The Multiplayer though is where this game REALLY shines. I will freely admit, I never placed any higher than fifth in any of the rounds that I played, but I was having an absolute blast. Normally in an online game, when someone kills me, I tend to get annoyed. I will admit I was mildly annoyed, but to be honest, I liked watching all the kills, be they from me or on me. The sweet combination of being both the hunter and the hunted, along with those sweet. sweet kills truly made for an enjoyable experience.
What I disliked: There was not much I disliked. The combat for the most part remained unchanged, aside from the dual-wielding, which was easy enough to figure out. Some may say it is TOO easy, and I can see that argument.
While the voice acting for the main characters is spot on and fantastic, unfortunately, the villagers spout off the same tired lines from AC2, with little to no deviation. "Isn't there some kind of decency law" does get old.
So all in all, there is not much to dislike about this game. It has some flaws, but this is definitely a must have game.
