So this game has gotten a bit better for me. I find myself roaming more than continuing the story which is what makes sandbox games better... There's lots to see and lots to do but I kind of feel like the maps are way too big for the amount of stuff they hide everywhere... Feels too spread out like I'm supposed to be wasting my time.
I'm also starting to care about the story and now that I have sneaky ways to assassinate people I'm kind of enjoying the game a touch more.
Don't get me wrong though - I still am not putting this game up on a pedestal. I'm viewing it as a means to waste time until my next pay check. I'm not too focused on caring about this title.
