2 was awesome, Brotherhood
on July 8, 2016
AC1 was alright (but I played it after the Ezio Trilogy), 2 was awesome, Brotherhood, too, and Revelations was very good.
I got suckered in by the preview videos of 3 and while I enjoyed the game, if the twists weren't in the game, I would be leaning on the negative side for my rating. The twists, while nothing mind-blowing, were very cool for the AC universe.
3 isn't bad, the main character isn't boring or stilted like reviewers or forum complainers claim - he's just not as fun/interesting/cool as Ezio is and how Ubisoft burned the current-day continuity was an abrupt end to what should have been kept light and casual. I enjoyed the current day plot and I miss it from the current series (especially how the original designer had planned it out).
If you liked the progression from 1, 2, B, R, went, you'll like this, but you may not ever want to play it again. It's worth a play for $10 or so.
