Well, first, there are some things I noticed about the game..

The anti-christian actions spoken in game by the people who stand on the platforms.
But yet, when you beat the game and look through Eagle Vision, there is a christian reference of the all seeing eye. Is this a way for them to equal out their anti-christian ways in the game?

-EDIT-

After you beat the game, you end up in the labratory. The Doctor and his assisstant leave you, and you're all alone. As they are leaving your eyes go nuts and you start seeing things. After they leave you are free to walk around as you'd like. Oh, I forgot to mention you can use Eagle Vision (Y) and look at things now. Subject 16 (the one before you) smeared messages all over the wall in his blood, which they washed off, so you have to use Eagle Vision to see them. Left of the Animus is the Triangle with the All Seeing Eye above it, which has to do with christian beliefs. So a Christian reference in a game that is pretty much anti-christian is what I'm asking.

I'm not a religious person myself, so it doesn't really make a huge impact, just something I was wondering.

Also, secondly, Altair has a crossbow in the opening scenes, and after beating the game (in less than 36 hours, including sleep) I noticed that I didn't have one. Did they replace the crossbow with the knifes, or am I just stupid..?

Maybe both?

This will never happen...
They removed it.
Forever.
And don't say "downloadable content", because the answer would be "No"....

No, I wasn't saying like 'yeah they should add it to the game'. I guess I should have said something more along the lines of 'it would have been cool to use the crossbow too'
