The story line is awesome. But the biggest improvement in this AC is that there's always something to do. You can wander off and find other things to do besides the main storyline. You'll come upon all kinds of side quests and towers. I love how well designed everything is. One giant city with non-stop activity. Catching pickpockets and couriers is way less frustrating. Combat is way more balanced. More challenges more content. And they scaled back the whole collect the flags/feathers/etc stuff to just 111 items total.
And the huge set piece puzzles are amazing too. In ACII I loved the church where you had to get all the way to the top because it was epic. It seems like there are pieces like that everywhere. So if you enjoyed just trying to figure out how to climb the different things there are so many different things in this game that it puts the first two to shame. And what a real shame is is how this game came out so late in the year and might not win game of the year.
I'd say I like it as much as Red Dead Redemption in story telling arc. And it blows most other games away with it's action combat and graphics.
I'm thinking possibly game of the year.
