This is my second AC title having just finished ACB several months ago. I cannot speak to the length of the single player story as I am still in the early stages. However, like all AC titles, there are a ton of side quests and personally I plan to do as much of that as possible before I complete the main quest line.
I'm a long time MMORPG player that was getting a little tired of the same old thing, I have really enjoyed the pace of the AC games. I decided to start from the beginning and play the major releases at a minimum, so making my way through ACII now and ACII to come. Mechanics are a bit clunky in comparison, but a great job on the story line. Not too many problems with content breaking.
