i know that the game saves automatically at certain points, but im still confused about it. it seems to save after each time you find a flag, scale a viewpoint, save a citizan, etc, but when have to turn the game off, how do you start the next time right where you left off? ive already assassinated the first target and now it seems like i cant go back to damascus and roam around and finish all of the optional objectives? or now after killing the first target if i want to go back to damascus i have to travel all the way there, and if i die then it puts me outside the city again? whats up with that?
another thing...while in damascus i was only allowed to roam around the poor district, which i take was becuause i hadnt completed enough objectives yet, but is there still a way that i can go back to damascus and "take my time" and roam around completing the little side objectives?
