    Difficulty Level ~ compared to previous AC's ?

    Comparing AC3 w/ the previous Ezio trilogy, I think they've done a great job making combat more difficult yet still not ridiculously hard.
    Just wondering how you feel about it? (not really wanting to go into complaints about the new mechanics so much as maybe how it affects combat)?
    & I think the Sync system is what helps make it harder for better gamers.

    Way too much and sometimes overly long combat - much like the original (which I hated).
    AI is dumb which makes the game more challenging than it needs to be.

    Not enjoying the game as much as AC2 for many other reasons.

    O_O Uh oh.... I'm already struggling in some group fights ... I at least hope that ends the complaining of it being too easy at least.
    & were you trying to sync that last mission & that's what made it harder?

    @ Bitebug, Sorry to hear that:/ I plan to go thru the Trilogy when I'm done. It'll most likely be hard to go back to different controls again after this.

    I find the combat really easy in this game compared to the other, maybe my gaming is just improving. I prefer the previous AC's however, there is something missing from this game for me. Still enjoyable however.

    I didn't know that. I figured it was becuz I got hit by a guard & it stopped the streak.
    The stealth is harder too - alot more guards placed in all the worst places.
