I liked the overall storyline, and most of the main characters. But the pacing of the plot wasn't too good and the plot seemed a little disjointed at times. So I'd say it was a good idea, but poorly executed.

I agree with CRtwenty. Excellent premise, sloppy execution. If only they hadn't rushed it out of the door, it might have been a lot more coherent. As it is, it's clear that large parts of the story are missing.

This game had a plot? For me it seemed all about Connor's obsession with Charles Lee, and small breaks arguing with an old black man.
Very true. You don't even feel like an assassin anymore. In fact the only reason Connor became an assassin was because he happened to be in the right place at the right time (although you could say the same about Altair, Ezio and Desmond. But Connor seems more likely to have become a Templar if things were just a little different).
This game feels like a mess compared to previous games. And although it was better than AC:Revelations it didn't hold up to the greatness of AC1 and 2.
