Ahh okay I'm down. Had me at RPG. Though knowing Ubisoft, this is one of those "online-only" social / solo adventure games isn't it? ... I hope not.

After downloading the additional 400 mb data at launch I'm enjoying this, big open world assasins creed game, you can climb all the rooftops so that's cool.

Downloaded. Atm it is downloading additional ~415MB.
As far as I could see, it's the first free roam AC game on iOS including day/night cycles and weather effects as well as wearable equipment of different tiers and different RPG like character classes. It's made with the latest available Unity engine which hopefully promises smooth framerates.
I hope it's good. Download just finished right now so let's see how it is.

Edit: it's indeed another social hub game which needs to be constantly connected to the internet. Graphics are looking good but nothing breathtaking. Controls are kinda sluggish imo. NPC's doesnt react to anything except running away if you kill someone in front of them. All kinds of IAP included.

After playing for a while, it's a good idea but unfortunately falls flat. The controls are very clunky and often unintuitive. Combat and stealth kills are extremely basic and don't differ much in terms of strategy. Also it requires you to be online at all times. It's a cool idea but unfortunately it doesn't play out as well.

Also the game doesn't play that smooth at all, often feeling rigid and the running feeling stiff. It even feels like it doesn't run that well on the iphone6 either.

Ye, someone would expect that a game made with Unity will run smooth but that isnt the case here. Many hiccups and framedrops on my Mini Retina. And there isnt even much going on. While there are many NPC's roaming around it still feels lifeless and boring. Oh well, I guess it wont stay for long on my device.
Agree on the other points you've made.

Thanks for the imps guys. At least i wont have to pull up the NZ account, nor should i look forward to something that would just end up disappointing.
