With this much practice you'd think the AC games would keep getting better, but they always manage to screw something up. Initial performance issues have been fixed, but a new slew of new game play issues have appeared. Paris looks great, it's immersive, there's a little more control over parkour movement, and the historical aspect is interesting. That's the good stuff. On the bad side: combat has become clunky, they've removed whistling (ruining stealth), removed the ability to hide bodies and use human shields, then added gear levels, basic skill unlocks and micro transactions. Shameful.
