I really cant stand the guards that are on every roof in this game. I am really enjoying my time with AC:R so far but am I the only one who thinks having the guards on top of every regular building is really contradicting to the design of the game. This franchise was originally built on the idea of free running from place to place, not just to escape but to get around the city. Yet i find that most of the time I just run around on the ground because I can can not be bothered with guards chasing me every time I stand on on top of a building for more than one second. To me this is the equivalent of Batman being sniped constantly when gliding in Arkham City, yes sure there are one or two snipers dotted around the city but not on every roof, or what if in GTA the cops started chasing you for little things like breaking the speed limit or driving on the wrong side of the road. I understand if in AC:R you have guards on top of a building that actually needs guarding, like a building where one of my targets is hiding but any other time its just stopping me from using the main mechanic of this game which is to climb buildings.
Am I the only one who finds this really annoying?
