Yeah, I know I'm a bit late to the discussion, but seriously. I went from being really interested in what happens next in AC2, and then Being highly surprised / impressed by what transpires during the end of AC:B.. to being completely disenchanted with anything that has to do with Desmond.
The Game play mechanics, and the story of Ezio was obviously my main draw for this game (again, obviously).. however its really starting to feel like the Desmond story is this thing that they cant just eliminate from the Franchise, since the whole "Templars of the modern age thing" / obstergo, etc etc... isnt something you can just ignore.
I guess what Im saying is, I kinda just wish that Assassins Creed was a stand alone product that didnt include the Desmond story line. Its horribly uninteresting at this point and it In my opinion really comes across like they're just making it up along the way.
I'll probably still play what ever the next AC ends up being, Im just really dissapointed with how they're handling everything that happens outside of Ezio's/Altaiir's lifes. Its really weird, and vague.. and they do a really shitty job of explaining anything.
Anywho, just my two cents.
