Just wondering, does the game change as you get further in?
I'm rank 2 or whatever its called (been playing about 4 hours) or so and its still telling me to do everything and its so scripted...

Is there free play at all or is it just follow this one storyline?

The storyline does progress in a fairly linear fashion (As good narrative dictates), but it is fun to find out the secrets of the story as you play. The game does get harder as you progress as the targets you have to find are harder to attack.

You still have the side quests and the flag hunting to do, as well as killing the Templars too. Make sure you watch after the credits as well. You are free to do what you want and in whatever order. The story still leads you by the hand but you are free to let go and go for a wander whenever you like. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

uhh you can wander all you want, for literally hours and hours. But you just do it in between missions. I dunno what the guy is talking about its pretty dam unscripted to me.

Well sure you can wander for hours and hours, and see some cool stuff, the same cool stuff over and over...
grab flags, save peons, over and over and over...
Man I'm bored and I've played for 5 hours...

So what I'm talking about is...I want to build my character...give him my own personal touches, maybe I dont want a sword, just daggers...
SCRIPTED.

Hmm just use your short sword then, nobody said this was an RPG with character progression. Seriously some of you guys are taking the game way out of context. I am enjoying it still on my 6th assassination and it is still fun, I guess being older you appreciate things more.

I describe it has a Linear free roaming game. I love it though.

Aren't all story games linear? It is very hard/confusing to make a story game NOT linear. You can choose which guy you want to kill at times but eventually you still have to kill them all. All games are like that.

I agree that maybe I was looking at this game differently than what it probably professed. But honestly how long do you see yourself playing this game after you complete it?

1.5 times?

This game has no lasting power, which is the mark of a good game. imo.

I call BS on that. I would never replay a Prince of Persia game but I loved playing through each one. Same goes for Bioshock. There's nothing wrong with a linear experience if it's done well... in fact, I enjoy a strong campaign way more than endless rounds of online Slayer. Talk about repetitive...

I have to say I have played for two days now and have only completed 2 of 9 missions. I have spent my time looking for view points, templars, flags, and completing some side quests. I love just exploring this world is so vast it is amazing.
