Not Bad On It's Own
on December 3, 2012
I like the art and the story is decent, but I don't like the differences from the games. Ubisoft has done a good job in ensuring very close continuity between it's various mediums. This is the first time I've seen major issues with it where some stuff just flat out contradicts what happened in the games.
The flashback story is good though and poses no problems with continuity. So read it for that and take the future events with Desmond and everyone with a grain of salt. It's not a must read by any stretch, but worth it for big fans. The presentation (hardcover, nice glossy pages) is also done very well.
