Is it me or is ACIII just so short?

I swear this game is short. I finished the storyline in 6 days playing it only like 4-5 hours a day. I also did all the missions sides. ACII took me 2 months to complete w/o any DLC.

Hmm...not really upset but just thinking that I never paid $59.99 for a game that I completed in 6 days before. The game was fine but I don't feel like playing it again.

How slow were you playing AC2? Because it definitely doesn't take two months, even -with- the DLC and all side content, and especially if you are on the same gameplay schedule.

Maybe finding and completing all those assassin & templar tombs took me long. ACII game also seemed to have more sync points and more things to do in each city.

You did not do all the mission sides and main story in 6 hours. I haven't even come close to doing all the missions and I'm 11 hours in. To do what you did you'd literally had to have skipped all cutscenes and avoided ANY sort of meaningful exploration. The game isn't short if you deliberately skip most of the content.

If you say so.

Less than 21 hours (since you don't have the DLC) stretched over two months is a pretty unforgiving play schedule, though. That's about 20 minutes a day.

He said 6 days, not hours.

Wow. Well I will admit I'm an idiot. My bad there, reading is pro. >_< Sorry. Well in that case 6 days with 4-5 hours puts the game at 24-30 hours. That's hardly short. Now granted that's with all the side stuff but the "side stuff" has so much character development (the homestead stuff anyway) that it might as well be part of the story.

Eh, you probably found it short because you only play as assassin connor for half the bloody game, even less. **** that.

^ Main storyline wise this is probably true, but the homestead missions take quite a bit of time and there's a ton of stuff to do as Conner, and most of it reveals bits and pieces of his personality (the conversations are especially good examples of this). So really, due to all of the high quality (with some exceptions of course) story related sidequests, one can say his story is pretty long.
