What do you mean by this?
Since there is no mission log on screen really, I have to press start and check. When you start a mission it doesn't always tell you what your optional objectives are.
I agree there need to be improvements to the stealth ability. AC2 had it perfect with distractions and stuff you can create. I feel like they've taken much of that out of the game. Its become more run and gun, kill people as assassin-like as you can now. Restricted areas are far too tough to make it through without getting into a battle.
About the fighting mechanics. I really hate how you can be surrounded by 4 or 5 enemies and only one will attack at once and all you're basically doing is just countering their move. That needs to be tweaked a little.
That said, I love the game and series
