And if you do, do you think he's better than Ezio or Altair.

Personally, I prefer Ezio, and i think if Ubisoft had used him properly, he could strengthened my attachment to the story.

I like Desmond. I felt I grew more attached to him while playing AC2, and being able to do more with the character. Rather than snooping around and using the recently inherited Eagle Vision.

What exactly were you able to do? Climb and hit guards? Big deal.

I can understand his wanting to stay under Lucy's wing because he really doesn't understand what's going on, but if he doesn't come into his own and grow more as an Assassin from his next ancestor than he's nothing more than Scott Speedman's character from Underworld. That being a central character, well designed, great history behind it, but very poorly used and executed (forgive the pun).

well its likely desmond will be the main character in ac3, so he will be on his own sometimes.

I liked Desmond in AC1 and i like him even more in AC2(ya gotta be crazy not like Nolan North).

I was intrigued by is morning philosophical chats with Vidic aswell as learning about Lucy's past.

Ezio'z a stud with the ladies...now back to the subject at hand. I've grown accustomed to playing as Altair and Ezio during these games with little interaction with Desmond. But, as time gradually creeped along in the plot we find the 'bleeding effect' taking hold of Desmond. That's when it started getting interesting for me with what Desmond could actually do. You know, kind of like Neo in the first matrix. Though Desmond does say he will help with all that is being done, a question still rises in my mind. Has Desmond accepted his fate as the last hope for all humanity or, does he still have doubt?

WHAT!? DUDE! Ezio has more "action" than your average main character, after a mission with his brother he goes and makes cristina his.
he's always flirting with women, he implies he's interested in Caterina Sforza, he flirts with Rosa, if you finish Horseplay well... you can imagine.
besides from that he's also gonna have a son/daughter in the future, he's not gay at all.
Leonardo seems gay BUT NOT Ezio.
to the Thread:
Altair: Badass Assassin, I like him a lot.
Ezio Auditore: He has many "outlets", then becomes an even more Badass Assassin than Altair ever was. EZIO FTW!!
Desmond: I like him, he was a bit annoying in the first game because he walked very slowly, however it was very interesting, in this second game he became a Badass Assassin just like Ezio, he just needs better gear and clothes to be awesome. I think next game will take care of him and turn him into a real and the best Assassin so... yeah I like him very much.

How can men be considered gay unless they truthfully announce their sexual interest in men? Or at least express it in some way.

On Topic, I like Desmond so far; I haven't played the sequel yet, though.
But it's such great voice acting, and the character's appearance appears very sympathetic - Or however I'm supposed to describe it.

Also, how about a "wireless" connection to the Animus? Or all it's data somehow imprinted into his mind, making him capable of "decoding the DNA archives" completely by himself?

i liked desmond's segments, he's already awesome and in ac3 it's highly probable that we'll get to ride bikes instead of horses since he admitted himself that riding motorbikes were his guilty pleasure.

I prefer Ezio to Altair.

I thought Ezio had reason behind his actions. He was killing in revenge for his family, albeit not a very good reason. But Altair killed for sport and as with the start of AC1 disregarded the creed, an act of ignorance.

Desmond, well..., he doesn't really feature enough for us to be able to have a strong opinion as his personality is all very hidden.

That would be cool if they turned Desmond into a Cyborg or something which allowed him to retain all the memories of his ancestors. It's my belief that the reason Sub16 went crazy was his brain wasn't evolved enough to handle all the memories so if they can fix that with Desmond then he shouldn't go crazy.

I prefer Desmond a lot more in AC2 than AC1. I feel a lot more "connected" to him. But,Ezio is definately no.1 for me. He's just awesome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

In AC1, I didn't care about Desmond as he was VERY limited with what he could do.
AC2, now that he's learning to assassinate, I'm starting to like him as he's becoming more a main character.

Despite him developing into an assassin, my favourite is Ezio (lots more killing technique than Altair in AC1.)

Desmond is interesting in his own way. Everything we've seen thus far must be continued by him (in our time). So I have a liking for him.

I liked how you had to 'discover' Desmond's story for yourself(talking to Vidic & Lucy in AC1) and he grew on me(when he mentioned he loves motorbikes I opened my heart for the guy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ).

One thing that ruined AC1 for me was Alta´r's voice actor... the guy has an american accent and substandard voice acting skills... I was disappointed. Ezio's voice actor makes up for it all though.

I would probably like Desmond, if I had a chance to get to know him.

Unfortunately, he is possibly the most underdeveloped character in recent memory. Two games, collectively around eighty hours of story-heavy gameplay, and we've gotten little more than a few brief conversations out of him, none of which have offered much glimpse into his own personality or history.

Altair is a friken legend. if they re-did AC1 with AC2 type gameplay so on (especially fighting with hiddenblade) it would so awesome that ubisoft could all retire knowing that they made and absolute legendary game and character. still Altair is awesome but some parts about Ezio is pretty cool.

Desmond is cool he has ancestors who are assiassins what not to like?

Keep in mind Desmond is the decendant of both Altair and Ezio, which means he has two generations of pure badass flowing through his veins, making him the ultimate badass... by bloodline anyway. Not to mention the fact he recieves training in a couple days, and uses said training to off about a dozen guards. So in my opinion, no matter how awesome Altair and Ezio were, that awesomeness lives on through Desmond. So, with that mindset, Desmond is awesome. Plus he's an amateur detective, and veteran bartender, who likes to ride motorcycles. AND He's voiced by Nolan North. What's not to like?

i always preferred desmond over his ancestors since he is the one who has got a bigger clue, he is making the links and connections between everything.

plus: i like his wisecrack style ^^ i mean lines like "WTF??" are just hillarious.

and of course people can identify with him a lot more than with his ancestors since he is a modern day normal guy.
