I thought this game was great. But half the story was good. The desmond parts sucked. I just want to play as altair, ezio, or connor. Desmonds a loser. I wish this series was more about assassination than ancient angel artifacts. They could easily make standalone assassins creed games from different eras that dont have to be tied togethor through the animus.
My problem with Desmond's parts besides a lack of characterization is that they pulled you out of the experience. Once you finally start getting immersed they make you play as Desmond. His parts were always kinda lackluster such as basic courses or those horrible animus scenes(the ones with the white background). I just try to ignore those parts.
There are plenty of games that just have a setting like that, but the Desmond part is what makes the game unique, it gives a connection to the real world that gives players the feeling that the past affects thier present.
I really doubt you know what it takes to make a good story, if you wrote it, it would probably be something that is generic, and boring ,( and then you would get mad at people and you would claim its artistic and they just don't understand)
I thought this game was amazing! And the whole story was wonderful! The desmond parts were just the icing on the cake. It was fun playing as altair, ezio, connor, and desmond's parts in the game. I Love how this series is about assassination and ancient angel artifacts. They could easily make standalone assassins creed games from different eras that can always be this good also! Whats your take on this?
i dont hate desmond's parts, i just hate the mystical/ magic s***. the first civ, the apples of eden, all the supernatural s*** is stupid, feels tacked on, and in my opinion dumbs the story down. i REALLY enjoy how theyve worked the assasins and templars into real people/eras of our past but the supernatural magic stuff really takes away from it. i guess they couldn't find anything realistic to use instead that would warrant the 2 orders doing battle for soo long, but still... i really dont like it. the artifacts are one thing, but the more it goes into the stupid juno/minerva/first civ stuff, the more i hate it.
