I didn't like any of the new additions to the series:
- Bombs: Completely worthless, and the Missions you use them for are arbitrary. There are also like 4 or 5 Trophies that require their usage. Idiotic.
- Den Defense: I only did this twice; the tutorial and the tutorial for the Trophy. Having it hang over your head for the entire game sucks. Once you get 7 MA's, the burden lifts and the game becomes immensely more enjoyable.
- Desmond Sections: These are truly the worst gameplay areas I have ever seen in any game. Even Superman 64 in its' broken-ass controls had a purpose and made more sense in context. Just...crap, absolute crap.
- Mediterranean Defense: Getting money from Assassin Missions in Brotherhood was cool. But again, having something hang over your head just sucks the fun away. That's the problem here, and you can never really let this one go away. I hope they scrap it for the next one. It's just not fun.
- As for the story
