Turkey? Meh. I was expecting something better. Like somewhere in Europe. I'd have preferred the series (Ezio) to stay in Europe. But instead they decide to go to crappy Turkey. Its like setting Assassins Creed in Afghanistan or something. I dont even like Turkish culture - I know nothing about it but Im not even interested in it.

Europe IMO has better culture. Just look how well the other games turned out. Italy is just beautiful. Why didnt they stay in somewhere like France or something? Imagine french accents in an AC game. It will fit perfectly!

Im just disappointed with having the game in Turkey.

Well I was getting fed up of Italy! And Rome was just far too bland and boring! I'm glad we're getting a country that is fresh and new to the series!

Well, it must have a nice reason why it will all happen there. And it is more towards the region of where the first game took place. I think it will be good and fresh to go to a country that is not really expected.

And to me, Europe is a bit boring. I know what happened in that time in Europe, but not what the rest of the world was doing.

@cwoad Get some historical knowledge. Turkey was the centre of the great Ottoman Empire, that included big parts of North-Africa, the Middle East and the Balkan, which are part of Europe. It came close to the size of the Roman Empire.

The Turks had an advanced culture for that time. They had some great writers specialized in poetry. And compared to Europe, their medical development was much more advanced. They laughed at European doctors who cut off broken legs instead of fixing them.

You're saying that the European culture is much better than the Turkish. Only play the game and you'll take that back.

Turkey it's a great change of pace for Ezio...if the game would have been set in countries similar to Italy there would be too much similarities to AC2 and ACB, so Turkey is the best way to set another Ezio game apart from the other 2...the next game will probably set in Europe again,or maybe America.

dude i already started this thread. and it would be good if you didn't insult other peoples countries but its your own opinion so do whatever u want. Istanbul ( or at least the part we are gona play in is in Europe. and at that time there was a a lot of diversity for all over so its not just Turk culture but culture from all over the world

It lies for the biggest part in Asia, but is counted as a part of Europe because of political, and cultural reasons.
Edit: fixed my spelling.

anyways: you complain about turkey not having culture. I don't know much about the country but Game informer says something along the lines of: "almost every major culture has had ties to the city of Constantinople."

Assuming thats true, I would say we are going to a very culture filled place.

OH and the explination for Ezio going to Turkey is that he is there searching for relics hidden by altiar after finding Masyaf overrun by Templars.

I'm really fine with wherever it is. But if I had the choice to choose, I would have loved maybe like a city in the snowy mountains. I could just imagine the awesomeness of traveling the freezing mountains with small villages here and there as you go along your journey.

Wow, seriously?

You go on to call Turkey "Crappy". Then you go on and say "I know nothing about it but Im not even interested in it".
That's called "ignorance" my friend. I suggest you stop playing video games and go pay a LONG visit to your local library. You can't expect the wonderful people at Ubisoft to teach you everything.
And i'm going to ignore the fact that you just compared it to Afghanistan. Just -wow.
I really don't like to restort to name-calling and I apologize in advance if it upsets any of the moderators on here but your post makes you look STUPID. And I bet that's just what you are.
You really need a good beating over the head with a nice thick World History book.

And for the record, I am not even Turkish. I am of Portuguese descendance.

Just like the picture says "Ignorance: When did it become a view point?"
When did people get so obliviously stupid that they think they can just have an opinion on something if they know nothing about it?

Yeah, I remember that post and it went something like this...

"Ok, IMO I'm pretty disappointed we have to play as Ezio again while he's an old geezer and its set in Constantinople? I don't even know where that is . I think Ubisoft would have been better off developing AC3 with a new ancestor and new, interesting location. State your opinions."



You know, you both should exchange numbers or something and get together. You would make a great team.
