I'm a few years to late but rather be to late than never!

This mission is freaking bad JUST HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
I remember being hyped back then about how the Modern Day would end and how the missions will suck... Guess my friends were right back than and still today!

Sin counter:

1. Desmond just walks in Abstergo VIDIC SHOULD HAVE TOLD HIM TO WAIT OUTSIDE WITH SNIPERS AIMING AT HIS HEAD!
2. Desmond walks in with no plan at all AND THE SAME CLOTHES!
3.THIS!

Desmond: It's hard enough taking a life.
Me: You don't have to kill them, just switch to your fists WHY CAN'T I PICK UP THE WEAPONS FROM THE GUARDS?!

4. Desmond enters a elevator Warren calls him out on his stupidity!
5. The Abstergo AI are the worst I'm climbing up and they look down ''where is hé?'' Well duh right under your nose!
6. Most Abstergo employees go back to work after they see the murder spree from Desmond!
7. And suddenly Desmond does this:

What was the freaking point of Ezio's training if he is gonna fight like Connor Kenway and use Connors Eagle Vision and not Altair's this makes me feel like all my training with him in AC2 and Brotherhood was pointless time. I wish he could switch between Altair, Ezio and Connor.

9. The guards fight exactly the same as everyone in Connors era and I hear the same pain sounds of death.
10.Daniel calls Desmond out on his stupidity HE ONLY HAS TWO KNIFES AND ONE JUST DISSAPEARS!
11. Daniel starts breaking down WOW- Sarcasm
12.Daniel dies!
13. Desmond uses the elevator AGAIN!
14. Daniel guns is the only gun that can shoot multiple times!
15. WARREN ****ING DIES IN THE MOST ANTI-CLIMATIC WAY EVER
16. Desmond uses the Apple WTF The guards at the exit don't shoot him even though they are not controlled... Wait how did Desmond get down their with his father JUST BLOW UP THE ELEVATOR!
17. No police outside!
18. We are back at the Temple... And nobody says ''are you alright Desmond?''

Otso Berg: I want to improve the security
Me: Just shut down the elevator!
How haven't the Templars not been wiped out!? and what happened to the Animus training program Warren used anyway could be handy against THE ONE MAN ARMY!

Sorry guys but this is freaking horrible. If the Juno fight (if that ever happens) is gonna be like this we can better stop carring at all!

Well you want to know something interesting?

During Development and during early press of AC3, Alex Hutchinson stated that Desmond would have his own moveset. They said his parkour would be more flashier with spin moves as opposed to Altair, Ezio and Connor.

His moveset I believe from what Alex said, would be all 3 mashed together with Desmond making it his own.

I 100% agree that they botched Modern Day as they always do. The fighting like Connor thing I hated and him walking into Abstergo wearing the same clothes he's worn the past few encounters with Abstergo was just stupidity.

That sounds freaking amazing!

If Ubisoft cares about the Modern Day they should put more time in it

Its interesting i remember alex also saying that desmond would be able to spin and that connor wouldnt when free running and that they had a rule against characters spinning
Long story short connor could spin when jumping over things, not sure if desmond could

I recognize that in game development you always end up having to make compromises. The Desmond segments were a (regrettably) minor part of a game that was already graphically and technically pushing the boundaries of last-gen hardware. Giving Desmond his own moveset was probably not deemed important enough in the grand scheme. Though that explanation falls flat when you consider that Haytham had his own moveset and he was even more of a minor character. (And freaking ZIIO! Whom we controlled in only one white room loading screen!) I guess they simply failed to prioritize and ran out of time.

Lol, I'm pretty sure Desmond didn't even get his own run animation. Isn't it just Haytham's, minus the hand on the weapon hilt?

But yeah, AC3 in general was a tale of poor prioritization. There's just so much unnecessary stuff in that game, while critical sequences and mechanics are left wanting.
