Considering how many people were in a hurry to trip over themselves in an effort to sing praises to the first AC, and now having tried the game for myself (and completed every achievement), I can state that hype won over actual quality of game play on that occasion. It has been enough to ensure that I won't touch any other AC game.
But to the heart of the matter: I don't trust any single game reviewing media completely. Same goes for global news outlets which is why I compare sources to measure any discrepancies.
