Love this game! This is as much fun as Thief 3! The exception is of course story line and graphics. You can climb just about any building,sometimes you have to go around the building finding hand holds, but getting down is fun, you do a leap of faith, jump off the building into a hay wagon or water. The graphics are soooooo good your stomach will do a flip flop as you jump off the building. Once you get parachutes, you can jump from any building or cliff and deploy your chute. In this episode, you get the crossbow, which is helpful to eliminate the guards. You can follow the story line or diverge a bit which is fun. There are endless opportunities for income, guard killings AND you get your own team of assassins to assist you during hard kills. If a mission is too hard, eliminate the Borgia tower before beginning and the mission is easier.
I've completed the game, but keep going back to explore different possibilities and the extensive maps of early Italy. My only complaint is the language, which is totally not necessary, but this series is one of the best and you will not be disappointed. There are surprises all over that will keep the story line engaging, can't wait for the next game in this series.
BUY this game, you will LOVE IT!!!
I recently purchased the game guide book. While it's mainly focused toward xbox and ps3, I play on the computer, it is still very helpful. What is most helpful is subject 16's puzzles. Some of the picture wheels don't match up and you have to toy a bit with them, but very useful.
Also in the walkthrough is a map listing the location of Borgia flags, treasures and the lairs of Romulus. The Borgia cape allows
you to be invisible to guards all the time, however, you must get ALL of the flags to get the cape and that includes the flags in the
lairs of Romulus. Another cape does the same thing only you must rebuild Rome 100% to get that cape. There are other helpful hints as well. I've only played the single player game, but find new things to do each time. I highly recommend this game, it is great. Another bonus is that you can actually THROW the spears and hit the guards, just make sure a citizen is not in your way. Need something else to do? Look at the Acheivements and try to get all of them....AWESOME GAME!!!!
