-Unable to re-do missions or sequences
-Some sound effects go missing during some cutscenes (this may be a Uplay issue)
-The game is more buggy than previous games and it is more common to come against floor glitches, etc
-Some stuttering and lag occurs in the cutscenes (this may be a Uplay issue)
-The game is shorter than the previously shorter than expected AC Brotherhood
-The game feels a bit rushed when it comes to the storyline compared to previous AC games and feels like it should of been an extension to AC Brotherhood.
-Recruitment of Assassins to the Assassin guild is more tedious than in Brotherhood
