Does anyone else have this game yet. I just picked up my copy last night and played a little bit and I have to say it is freaking amazing!

Yeah I have only played like a total of three hours and I am hooked. I hope they continue the series into the future.

I've never played an AC game. Are they linear or sandbox?

Ditto, but I'm sure the second and third are sandbox style. Side-quests are present, and there's decent free roam.

Sandbox. I'm playing AC2 at the moment (19 bucks pre-owned) and they're great. Very GTA in how they're 'sandbox' in that certain things are unlocked by doing story missions.

Yeah the third one is very sandbox. The option to do the main missions are there but if you want you can just run around offing redcoats. Its great.

Is the storyline such that you need to play the first 2 in order to catch up, or can you start with ac3 and be fully immersed in the story??

The first like five mins of AC3 gives you a very quick run through of the backstory leading up to the present day. You dont have to play the others but they are fun to play so you can if you want haha.

I haven't bought the game yet, but I played it for like 2 hours with my cousin last week. He bought it the first day it came out. Indeed, I completely agree that it is amazing. With new amazing tricks, improved missions etc, this game is with no doubt much better than the previous Assassin games.

The button layout seem different to me though although I only played the first mission in AC1 and I got halfway through Revelations, so maybe its just me.

If it's anything like the first two games, I would assume that you'd be okay with not playing the AC1 or AC2 Part 1, 2, or 3. It should be self-supporting. I have yet to play it myself but if it's anything like the first two, it should be correct.

It does help to know the lore of the past games to understand the somewhat convoluted story, especially regarding the true nature of the templars and such.

Has anyone tried out the multiplayer yet. Whenever I play multiplayer the only game mode i get is manhunt. I hate manhunt but thats mostly because I am horrible at it.

You are probably just queuing in quick match. If you go to custom you can set your own preferred game type, and search for lobbies of that variety.

I bought AC1 a few years ago and never finished it. I then bought 2 and was horribly confused. I skipped Brotherhood and bought Revelations and that was OK. I guess it depends.

The first AC ive played is the third and I understand the story well enough. Tote got mindfvcked at the end of sequence three haha. Think AC has the best plot of any game I've played in awhile to be honest, at times it feels like I'm watching a movie more than playing a game but I like that.

Honestly, I can't handle all the Italian names. I assasinated the pope! But why again???
The gameplay is very fun though, especially when you have multiple mouse buttons. The combat is a bit full though as only one guy at a time attacks...
