I have yet to have a soilder fight me one at a time its usually at least 2 attacking. I'm only on my 2nd assassination and so far the games a lot of fun but I do think it will become repeditive before its over. Visuals are top notch and I love the way free running feels. Best in game horses ever with on horesback combat included.(take that Oblivion) I'm not impressed with the flag collecting or the saving the poor people from the gards miniquests. I am however enjoying the storyline so far. There have been several moments that have put a big smile on my face.
My only real technical complaint so far is the control scheme. I find it rather cumbersome and I'm haveing trouble keeping everything memorized. I wish things were maped a bit differently. Also I find the games menu system to be excesivly clunky.
There is a lot in this game worthy of praise. From what I've seen so far I find some of the 7's this game has been getting to be rather harsh.
