I would argue that hype is way too high for both games but this is really hyperbole.
I wanted to play these pre-Origins AC games just to be up to everbody else but I won't be able to do it apparently. I don't have a big problem about ''stealth'' in games. I can even enjoy it sometimes but I have real problems about these pre-Origins AC games.
-Animations are so bad especially in combat/stealth, they look like there is a bug nearly everytime.(This still continues with Origins and Odyssey but whatever)
-Controls are not good, I really don't enjoy the controlling my character. Nothing feels fluid, there is always ''waiting'' if it is a correct term to use for this situation.
Maybe I will try to finih them just for the stories but problems I have about these games don't make it easy to finish. I really wish some other company to tackle this franchise.
It wasn't great for sure and there were really annoying technical problems. Also combat was really weak in "impact" department.
But the story was nice and I really liked some moments.
I already wrote my thoughts about it in detail at another topic. Only thing left to say is: I won't tolerate the problems I have if they will be in the sequel too.
Also, I didn't play many 2019 games unfortunately. That's why it's my 2nd.
