Default AC:Brotherhood

I'm seeing a sale on AC:B today, at d2d.com. Before I buy, can someone tell me if the HUD is still using the same picture/icons for actions that you can't map to different keys? I found it confusing and frustrating to get used to.
How much better is it than AC2 (if any)?

I don't think you can map the keys. I played it a few years after playing AC1, and I'm still pretty used to the overall scheme. Definitely not a bad game to get into

I can't compare it to any other AC game since I've only played brotherhood, but i do have to say it's worth the buy it's an excellent game imo

played AC a few years ago...it was quite repetitive and annoying so I stopped playing after a few hours.
I'v read that AC2 is sooo much better than the first one and brotherhood is quite good too.
I'll give the AC series another try ;p

I thought AC2 was so similar to the first as well, I didn't finish either of them, but it does look like AC B has the proper key prompts on screen now. It's back on sale this weekend...and I was looking for a distraction until DE:HR comes out...to buy or not to...
