Ummmm.... WHAT? Really? This game really lost me. That ending in my opinion was just bad. The whole Desmond just dying to save the world and the shit with Juno?? I feel like this is the worst game (Story-Wise) in the series. (Well, AC1 might have it beat there but still). Connor was just a bad protagonist. He didn't have much emotion except for Revenge and being Noble. I couldn't relate to him at all. Ezio (IMO) was just a well-rounded character and to go from a character I deeply enjoyed to this character where I couldn't care about really ruined my mood for this game. Not to mention the game had so many missed story opportunities. Why didn't we hang around famous characters more like George Washington? I wanted to see more of him but didn't. And don't get me started on the whole Haythem/Conner relationship. At first it started off good. I was looking forward to it. Connor appeared to start caring for his father and Haythem to Connor. And then because of one argument with Haythem and Washington, Connor was done with both them! Come on..... That scene was good at first but Connor reaction to it just killed it for me. The death Kanthoko (I can't spell his name, sorry) was so anti-climatic. That's another thing, deaths in this game I thought I would care about, would just become this whole anti-climatic scenario. I didn't feel any sadness come from Connor. And when Connor killed Haythem (Haythem reaction to dying was pretty cool) but I wanted them to build that relationship up so it would be heartbreaking to kill a character in this game, that I thought was a complete badass.
The only good death in that game I can think of right now was Lee and that's not saying much. It was good, don't get me wrong, but it was just another moment in this game that I felt missed out on some opportunity to make it better. The setting, combat, and enviroment all felt superb. But, I really wish they had done the story a lot better. This is not the Assassin's Creed game, I grew to love thanks to the amazing story in 2. I have to say this again, this game just felt like, one missed opportunity after another.... With this and Mass Effect 3, this year is just killing my feelings for both these series that I cared and invested time into the story. If you look back at the main end game spoiler thread with Ass Creed 2, you'll see I was so passionate for that game. This one just let me down, in ways I'm still having trouble believing just happened. I'm sorry if this sound whiny, but I really wanted to say this. And I'm if I misspelled anything or my grammer is bad, it's late at night and I'm only typing with one arm (I broke my left).
