So I just started playing this a few days ago and while there are certainly tons of good things I can say about the game, one of the true negatives for me right now is the new map structure. In the old games when you went into the Map you could access your legend and move around with both the joysticks and the map basically was the screen. The map here feels clunky. You open it up and your brought to essentially a menu screen with the map on the side of that. Only the right joystick controls the map by itself, and if you use the left joystick in anyway you end up changing options in the menu's and can get rid of map view all together.
While it isn't a game changer or breaker and can be learned. It is just one of those really inconvenient things I feel could of been used much better. While the map systems in previous AC games are nowhere near the depth or use of something like a Skyrim map system I really feel like this is one of the clunkiest map systems in the whole series. Anyone else having these concerns?
