I would still never compare the AC series to an actual stealth series, like
Thief, so going to a generally more open combat approach is fine with me.
Don't foreget the long drawn out kill sequences. Man I hated those. As for me I didn't really get into the franchise until Black Flag. Mainly due to pirates and naval warfare.
