First off, I wouldn't fault anyone for creating a new AC3 thread that had a more engaging opening post. Just saying. >.>

They've added some new cool tools, like the rope dart. But they've dumbed down the controls a bit. So now you can't grab people, and you can't headbutt/knee/punch either. So now I can't throw soldiers off cliffs, or beat up helpless civilians like in the previous installments.

You can grab people, but only after a counter. Whatever button you use to counter with, hit it again to grab them. I'm not sure if you can hold onto them or if you automatically throw them right away though. I discovered how to grab late in the game.

The multiplayer is a blast. One issue I had with Brotherhood and Revelations is the fact that a giant "B" appears over your head when you approach people you're about to assassinate. This is no longer a problem. Now, an "X" appears over EVERYONE'S heads, both civilians and players, meaning people can't distinguish you from everyone else as easily. SO MUCH BETTER.

I thought wolfpack was going to suck after watching the trailers. It's sooooo much fun. You just need a group of people who communicate well.

Seriously, if anyone wants to play AC3 multiplayer on xbox, just hit me up. My friends list is full, so send me a message. If you're awesome, I'll clear room and send a friend invite.

Definitely going to get this game. Anyone know if you can switch the bow hand? Connor looks a bit odd if he wields a tomahawk in his right hand but does the same with the bow...when righties hold the bow with their left hand. Coming from an archer, it's really annoying to see my opposite shooting style.

He's ambidextrous apparently.
