I'm inclined to agree. It has short comings, but it screams quality, and there's alot more to like than there is to dislike. I think Penny Arcade had a point. AC is the absolute worst game to play if you're trying to complete it for a review. Trying to do it in one or two sittings just massivley exagerates its problems. If you only play a couple of hours a day, it remains enjoyable. And yeah, good story.
