Buddy of mine brought back pictures from his trip to Italy and sure enough when I saw Venice, all I could think about was Ezio and running around the buildings; I then cursed him for the next three weeks while I was re-playing the game and trying to get 100% (currently at 95%)Last week I visited venice. It was a lot of fun walking around the same places where I've been in the game, hehe. Got to say, some of those buildings is IMPOSSIBLE to climb IRL though
Huge, beautiful city stuffed with amazing details
Lairs and other platforming sequences are fantastic
Long, with lots of fun and varied activities
Economy is more meaningful than before
All sorts of improvements, big and small.
Main story is disappointing
Assassin recruitment is contrived and ultimately meaningless
