I hope they fix up the jumping mechanics on this game a little bit. Apart from that it seems to be pretty cool, there really are loads of options for how you move around, gain access to areas and take out enemies.
"London also has a rich history of plagues, fires and psuedo-mythical figures like Jack the Ripper. Edinburgh, on the other hand, pr
