The first AC game has been sitting on my shelf for a while now, and today I finally decided to give it a shot in the hopes of catching up story-wise to AC 2 and Brotherhood. I like the assassinations and viewpoint stuff, and the other side missions seem entirely fine (though I'm not fetching any of those fucking flags). What I can't stand is the traveling from the "main castle" (you know, where the guy gives you back your shit in increments) to the other cities. I hate sitting on my horse at negative six miles per hour just so I don't piss off those fucking guards. Usually I just storm past them and hope that I eventually lose them but it is irritating nonetheless. Does this get better in future installments or am I just not the AC "type"?
