Yeah i played it, generally enjoyed it, and somehow clocked only 4 1/2 hours in it O.o (and i had all but one upgrade)
While it was fun for awhile it it's not something really worth replaying, so as you said "it's worth a rental" unfortunately i paid full price ...well trading it in is the plan now
Mine had a strange glitch where the beginning of each spoken sentence would repeat twice over (choppily of Course) i'm hoping it's not a glitch with the system, >.<
Congrats on getting your review published! I hope I can do this in the future.
I mean, you seem to have had much hatred for AC1, and thought that the game had a focus on "pickpocketing" and "flag-collecting", when they were optional side-bits.
I got this game for Christmas from a unknowing little brother so im not quite sure whether or not to open it and play it or just bring it back and get a better game instead....despite the praise i've seen it get i just doesnt seem to have any real motivation for me to open it
