Also calling AC a hack and slash is a giant question mark from me. The series started out with a heavy stealth focus.
Assassin's Creed is not Metal Gear Solid stealth, it's Tenchu stealth, i.e. hack-and-slash stealth (not to compare AC, which is garbage, to MGS or Tenchu, which are great). AC's "stealth" is: sneak around until you get caught, then do boring combat. Or, once you can't stand how boring the combat is, run away from the enemies and hide to avoid the punishment of having to play the game's boring combat.
