I miss having the kingdom which allowed us to travel around between the cities. In AC1 we had little towns where we could kill Templars or on the way to Acre there was a massive guard outpost. In AC2 we had the mountains, correct me If I'm wrong but I never saw one person in the mountains just little homes that reminded me of hobbit cottages. ACB did not even have a kingdom which was not surprising. Who would love to see a kingdom type roaming countryside to surface in the next AC just to change the atmosphere of the game from time to time.

if there was a place to do it, that would have been AC2 with Tuscany.

It got a bit annoying when ya needed to go somewhere for the first time when playing it over, but otherwise, the kingdom was a nice touch

I would like this. Would need some kind of missions though. Nothing too costly to develop, but just like, in the original, finding and assassinating the templars there quietly was fun. Maybe something like that, but repeatable (because it wasn't in AC1). Doesn't have to be story focused or anything, just a little sort of "minigame".

I didn't really like the kingdom from the first game and as ThaWhistle said, it was pretty annoying when you needed to go to a city for the first time because it was too hard to navigate with only the mini-map. However, if this issue is to be resolved (assuming the kingdom is added in the next game) then I'm all for it!

I don't know I'm kind of iffy on that subject. On one hand yeah it was kind of cool but at the same time I never went there ever. plus in the first game every time you moved guards where all over you but I guess that's not as bad as the next two games where you can walk for miles and not see ONE guard like I did the other day. I guess they could do it but they need to make changes like have there be more stuff to do there and more stuff to see.

I agree, but one cannot simply WALK into another city. [/refrence]

In a way, we have this with the Borgia towers in AC:B. Generally, I wasn't a fan of the Kingdom ride just for the incessant bleeping of being noticed by military.

it's a good idea but i hated how big it was in ac1 i always had to look at the map to see where i was i would get lost allot so a smaller version of the kingdom would be nice

playing through AC1 again, the most annoying htings in the game were the hour long lectures by al mualim and the kingdom. the 5-10 minutes of travel plus climbing the same repetitive building over and over again was a buzz kill.

otherwise, just putzing around and looking at it was fun, but otherwise, it was tedious at best.

Good riddance, Kingdom! I hated that. That area was just too big, causing travelling to be really tedious on the first few memories. On the other hand, something with the size of The Mountains would be okay, but even that shouldn't be compulsory. (Once again, if it was used in an exotic mission like AC2 did, no problem. Just no AC1 style long rides.)

I agree, the kingdom was sort of annoying that the guards were EVERYWHERE. In AC:B, after you take down all the borgia towers and complete the main story, there's not many guards around, so when I wanted to have an epic showdown with some guards and my recruits, I had to annoy 4, then run a while and keep in their line of sight while I found another 4, then I did the same thing again and again until I got a reasonable amount of guards after me, then called my assassin's. There needs to be a nice medium, it's sort of one extreme to the other - Guards everywhere, then guards nowhere.

The Idea is a great one but the reason we have ot seen a similar thing is probably because we are not in a war situation, but ACB is a war situation i hear some of you say, yes it is but we are in the centre of Rome were the war is taking place.

One has to remember the Itlian Renaisence was not the 12th century crusade. Two very differet periods of history.

To me it was a challenge, and it wasn't hard at all. I only had to check the map from time to time.

Agree with persia, you only had to check the map a few times and try to navigate your way through but after a while it was easy although i must admit the first times i went into the opposite direction a lot of times and ended up in damascus rather than acre.

Didn't really mind the Kingdom in AC1. The only thing about it that really irritated me in regards to its sheer size was while trying to find all of King Richard's flags in the Kingdom. That was a marathon due to the size of the map.

I cant believe someone can use size as an arguement to dislike AC's kingdom.. the ever alert guards sure were annoying but it was nice to leave the narrow alleys and generic rooftops of the city and explore the expansive outdoors of the great kingdom, there were towns, ruins, mountain passes, military camps and places to explore.

If you think about it all 3 cities were more or less the same but the kingdom was diferent.

I do not miss the Kingdom. I found it extremely boring.

haha I do that too. That's actually kind of bad that everyone is having to do that.

I myself really enjoyed the kingdom. The size is what actually made it so cool...to me at least. And it wasn't that hard to memorize either, especially after collecting all the flags there. I also really loved going to the big military camp just outside of Acre [which I loved] and slaughtering them, lol. The downside to the Kingdom is that besides going there to explore and kill guards, and using it as a road to the other cities, there was nothing to do...at all. They needed some actual missions to have been set there.

So, if they were going to make a countryside like the Kingdom in AC3, which I'm all for, they better make it so that we're able to do more than just ride through it. I'd like to be able to do missions and other interactive activities as well.
