I totally agree with the combat part. It suck in this game. In the other games. When you countered. You actually countered with a move. This game when you counter. You just deflect attacks. The gameplay to cut scenes aren't smoothed at all. During missios. It seems the game works against you and tries to make you lose. Like your player won't run right away when you make him. Or horses act difficult during missions but not free Rome. During some missions they had strange glitches making it even harder to beat.
