How is it compared to Assassins Creed II? That game got boring quick due to redundancy.
I would call it "Monopoly: Rome"
God damn the game is all about buying shops and get profit from them, open up guild houses, setting up assassins guild and recruit own assassin apprentices that you can call in for help. If anything, Ezio is taking the lifestyle of his merchant family, rather than assassin order.
Of course there is stabbing and and jumping the rooftops, but mostly it feels like I am buying expencive painting because I don't know where to throw away my money.
