Ok so going on the advice of fellow PSU peps I bought all the other Assassins Creed before 3. I was ready. Going into this I taught you just play an Assassin of a time period who gets into some deep crap. I was half right. When the Animus pop up I was like wtf? I NEVER knew about this, seriously I didn't. First I was like, ok this is not going to be what I taught. I admit it turned me off a little bit, but as I played more I started to enjoy it. My big thing is how can this game game be out for over 5 years and me not even know about Animus. I mean most reviews I saw never mentioned it. Needless to say it was a nice surprise and I can not wait to beat AC and play the rest.
