I just finished playing AC 2 (yes I'm almost 3 years behind) and totally loved it. Didn't expect much when I first started, in fact I hated it a little. But as the story progressed I really started to fall in love with it.
The BEST part of it were the 20 side puzzles to unlock subject 16's video. Towards the end, the puzzles started turning into code breaking and really required thought.
I've been CRAVING games that not only challenge my gaming skills, but my logical thinking and deduction skills. Most games that promise this tend to be really easy.
So I was wondering if anyone could recommend other games with difficult puzzles as well as a great, sandboxed gameplay? I have AC: Brotherhood lined up to play next and hope it can deliver the same rewarding experience as AC 2.
Any comment is appreciated!
The uncharted series have some puzzle bits, although it's not the main focus, and again isn't sandbox.
