AC3 was my 1st AC game I've played...the reason I looked into it and bought it was cause of the advertisement that made the game look so great, anyway I thought it was great had no problems with the bugs that were complained about on here just minor ones that didn't break the game for me like the annoyance of the notification of weapons, shard of eden ect but that was fixed lol only problem I had/have was that for some reason I'm short 2 special iron ingots and can't make the last 2 guns I'm missing!! That's not here nor there so with that said I think I read on here that xbox live had a sale of all AC games so I bought AC1 and 2. AC1 was borderline wack if it wasn't for the great story and dialogue. The gameplay was way too repetitive and who's idea was it to make us run around looking for 400+ flags lol. AC2 on the other hand was great, now I understand why everyone loves Ezio so much. all in alll my assessment of them are...AC1 was a rough draft and AC2 was the blueprint.
