I just made it through Assassin's Creed 2 by knowing some of the story, that too was convoluted.

I mean, how am i supposed to remember all these Italian names when there are so many people in this game. It's all confusing and i have no idea what is happening. I'm just running about killing people.

For Assassin's Creed 3 please make it a little more straightforward without throwing 16000 names on me in the first 4 hours.

Thanks.

I can't believe you're actually complaining about the names of the people. The names are the least confusing things in the whole game. All(most) of the people in the game were actually real people so they are in fact their actual names.

So what you're basically saying is; "I'm an illiterate child that can't remember a few names."

I'm sorry if I seem all uncaring and 'ruthless', it's because this is really the limit.

You don't need to memorize the names, you do know that don't you?

I agree with the first two replies. And in fact, Brotherhood is EVEN SIMPLER than AC2 to remember. The only important people you have to remember are (off the top of my head, no less):

-> Ezio. Duh!
-> Mario (but you can forget about him quickly)
-> Maria and Claudia
-> La Volpe
-> Bartolomeo D'Alviano
-> Niccolo Machiavelli
-> Caterina Sforza
-> Rodrigo Borgia
-> Juan Borgia
-> Micheletto, the personal assassin
-> The Baron du Valois
-> Cesare Borgia
-> Lucrezia Borgia
-> Leonardo da Vinci


Each has a unique outfit and appearance, so it's easy for them to jog your memory. There isn't a single character on that list who could be confused with someone else. If I can remember their names exactly, surely you can at least RECOGNISE them? It's not like I'm Italian...

Nobody remembers all the names on their first playthrough, what the hell did you expect?

If you have trouble following the story or remembering names there are plenty of information resources out there for the game so, if it means that much to you.

Go look it up.

You can't seriously expect them to water it down just so you don't get confused? lol

Maybe it's me that has ADHD then. It's still confusing.

1. whats ADHD?

2. There is a database on all of the characters that you meet on the animus that explains them in detail.

3. If you dont like it then play a different game. simples.

What, would you prefer it if the game didn't have characters? If you can't remember the names in a video game, how were your grades in history class?

Do you even know what ADHD means? You're using it in the completely wrong context.
Convoluted isn't a bad thing. LIFE is convoluted, so godknows how you're managing with that. Forget your friends and families names do you cus there are too many? Jeez, just play the game. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

...I don't mean to be a bother, but it is "illiterate", not "ilitirate". =D

Back on subject. Rakudaton listed a group of names. These names are very easy to remember. In fact, ten of those fourteen names popped up in ACII. Seven of those names come around several times during the ACII (Ezio, Claudia, Mario, Rodrigo Borgia, Leonardo da Vinci, Bartolomeo D'Alviano, La Volpe) and out of those, all but one showed up in the main storyline of ACB multiple times. So, in essence, you are complaining about not knowing really only two names: Micheletto and Maria Auditore. The rest of the names pop up very often in ACB and about half pop up very often in ACII.

If you're going to complain about not knowing names, complain about ACII because it was far more confusing.

Whoops! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif I was typing really fast and didn't seem to notice.

Back on-topic!

Like most of us here in this thread said, if you can't manage to remember 10 names in a videogame, what is your opinion about other games and about life itself?
You can't escape this, just deal with it and play Mario or LOZ, where you only have to remember 4-6 names(I'm in no way insulting those franchises. In fact, I like them).

If you go into the Animus Desktop you will find under Database, all of the important people and places. That way you don't need to memorize them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
