OXM US explain five things wrong with Assassin's Creed that do matter:
OXM US Writes:
"1. The side missions are painfully repetitive.
There are only six types of side quest: pickpocket, informer, eavesdrop, interrogation, save citizens, and view points. But there's freakin' 210 of them in the game. I played every single one of them, and good lord do they get old in a hurry. I love Ubisoft's ambition in terms of scale, but guys – you gotta back that up with the kind of variety that'll hold my interest longer. Medieval assassins must've had more ways than that to get info on their targets!."
