My problem with the Assassin's Creed games is that I always try to play them like stealth games, and Assassin's Creed is not a very good stealth game. It's a great action game, when it wants to be, but it's just not built for stealth as anything other than a side-mechanic. It's not adaptive enough; stray from the level designer's script for a second and you're screwed, drawn into running or fighting instead.
