Can hear what you are saying about AC series, I was never drawn in to those stories and characters. BUT this one is different. It is in the US during the Revolutionary War so really should pull in more Americans from a content standpoint. If you haven't seen the commercials you haven't been watching TV as they are everywhere.
Understand, only so much time to game but I really think this one is worth buying and very different from the other AC games.
Yeah and with the preorder bonuses and price match opportunities, you'll probably end up getting this game cheaper now than if you wait for BF. unless you're really not a big fan of the series, then I would just wait it out.
