It ain't bad. Runs smoothly. Just minor hitches. Looks great and it's fun. I have fun exploring. I was worried about the combat. It looks a little off. Just rough animations I guess. But the combat is actually good. Way better than Unity or Syndicate. A much need change for the series.

Yeah I've been playing it. I don't mind it, but I honestly miss the old Assassins Creed. By that I mean just the movement, way things work, etc. This game is basically a soft reboot and it's kind of sad to see the old formula be completely gone. I feel it was fine and you could just work on combat from that, and I miss from the last two installments how it was a Hitman style assassination kinda thing where it showed you a cutscene of things going down at the assassination event, and you could have multiple ways to get to your target and get kills.

It feels kinda plain so far in this one.

I haven't played much of it yet, but I'm enjoying it. I'm glad it changed a lot personally. Though I understand some don't like change, at least not a lot.

I like some aspects, I just feel the assassination thing is a serious downgrade. I'll render my verdict fully later though, I'm still insanely early in it.

I feel it's far superior to Unity and Syndicate, and have been having more fun than I thought I would.  Not too thrilled about the RPG aspects and the first 10 minutes just turned me off for a bit because of how abrupt it starts, but it picked up later on.

it's a decent action-rpg with a great open world, but I don't like it that much honestly. I want a stealth game not another big open world rpg-lite. I miss the information gathering and growing to know your target before killing them. They went quantity over quality in terms of quests, and the main story really suffers from that. Very rushed beginning and ending with a good middle. It barely even covers a lot of the aspects of the assassins as an origins too which is a shame.

They claimed you could play however you wanted, but that's only really true if you want to fight everyone. If you try and stealth it constantly takes you out of it with lame incredible hulk looking dudes that can't be assassinated, so many boring boss battles.

I really want to like it more, but I just prefer a more AC1 / Unity style game rather than horse riding fetch quest dark souls witcher wanabe. At least it got an appropriate dev cycle and didn't get slammed out of the gate, so there is a nice level of extra polish and little touches. But ultimately I just found the game frustrating , 'cause all the times I could've been assassinating some important dude with a setup and payoff, I was instead fighting a giant elephant or helping pointless npc #85 that I would never see again
