Assassin's Creed III - A Disgrace to the Series (Caution, Spoilers)
Fan Boy Betrayed
I have been and Assassin's Creed fan boy starting when my sister bought be Assassin's Creed II for Christmas one year. Brotherhood was already out, but I started with II and I instantly fell in love with it. Throughout the whole Ezio series, (II, Brotherhood, and Revelations) there was but one goal, kill the Templars, and find the Apple of Eden. It was a great story line and it developed even more in Revelations when you find out that there is not one, but six Apples of Eden. Now one would think that Ubisoft would continue this key role in the story line over to AC III, but that is not the case.
To Me the Game Seemed Rushed
They dropped preexisting story lines in order to find a way that they could kill off Desmond and completely altar the story of AC. To me this alone just ruined the game and i could not play it fully. On top of the flaws in the story line, there were also many other things I did not enjoy in this game.
One of the major things that annoyed me was Conner, yes, Conner. I hated the main character of this game, he was not even close to the level that both Ezio and Altiar were on. Having a character that I did not see even remotely bad ass, made the whole concept of an Assassin like game pointless.
I loved this series and have owned every game including the first one. Although I think the buck stops here. I made a vow that I would not buy Assassin's Creed Black Flag, and I don't even want to look at it. I am just overly upset with what Ubisoft did with this game line.
If you disagree with me, or have any points going against what I just said, I will be glad to hear them. Thankyou
