Was going to wait on getting it like I usually do, but with D2 not offering much content to do other than the raid for fun I sent ahead and jumped on this. Like all AC games, I opted for the physical edition. And standard one at that. Don't want the season pass, and wasn't enough incentive to spring for the deluxe edition just for a few items that you probably won't use long.
Got it pre-loading now, will be good to go Thursday night.
Watched a little bit of an IGN stream before the D2 raid tonight, man it looks so good. Definitely think this will be my main game for the foreseeable future. Pretty much only going to be doing raids and nightfalls on D2 until Season Two begins.

Seeing some mention of technical issues from several outlets in otherwise positive reviews. Be on the lookout for that.
Metacritic is averaging right around 85 percent... 8.5/10 would be what I would expect given everything and some of the potential changes to combat and so forth. It all depends on if we're going to have to go through "Unity growing pains adjustment" again or not. I can't take a score lower than that seriously and most of the outlets are going 8.5 and higher.
Gamespot gave it a 7 because they weighed in heavily on tech issues. Those are some pretty bad issues they had and it remains to be seen how widespread and endemic any of that will be. I sincerely hope they revise that score post patch fixes. 7/10 for this? No way.
Yeah I'm loving it. Have only had one issue. One of five priest I needed to free wasn't tied up, he was just standing there, and wouldn't leave. Turned it off there last night, and went I got on this morning, he was sitting tied up so I could free him and complete the quest.
Game looks fantastic, and I'm digging the new combat system. Really loving the bows.
