I posted elsewhere but no one has responded...

I was thinking of buying assassins creed 3, but I have not played since I played assassins creed, the first one.

I was ok with it and I played it through to the end but I found it a bit boring. It was very very repetitive. I felt that while the world was huge, the missions were very small.

You pickpocket, eavesdrop, and kill a few people that are not hard to get to, and then assassinate a main target, then run back to the base. You do this over and over and over till the game ends. I beat it within days. It was a bit stale.

I was hoping I would have to infiltrate a huge building or something that took long and more linear, and more asassiny-ish and missions that were longer and different. I like games like splinter cell, batman, where strategy and stealth are needed and the missions are linear.

Is asassins creed 3 the same thing as the first one? Or has the gameplay changed?

Its nice that the world is huge and you can do whatever you want, but I like when theres a mission at hand, and pickpocketing should take more than finding someone on a street corner.

AC2 was alot better than the first. I havnt played Brotherhood or Revelations but AC3 is as good as AC2 some say that AC2 was better. It is definatly better than the first though.

Then you haven't played Assassins Creed, Brotherhood and Revelations is basically about Ezio the character from AC2. AC3 is GOOD!

I'd say get AC2 and ACB. Definitely the best in the series.

If you like slightly interactive movies then I guess it would be great. 

I am still in Boston but bored as hell because it seems to be 15 min of cinematics for every 2 minutes of half assed gameplay so far.  A lot of the gameplay seems to be go here and do this, go here and do that. Once in a while you have the freedom to explore the city but there really isn't much to see or do. 2 side quests and a couple chests here and there. They made lockpicking a pain in the a$$ as well. 

I really don't understand what they were thinking to be honest. Even when your character has a conversation you have no input into it... it just plays out. You can skip it but I am wondering if it's information I need to know for later. The main character kinda behaves like a pompous douchebag when talking to NPCs as well so the solutions to problems are always not the way I would have handled it.

You obviously didn't mind it that much if you played day after day until you beat it.
