I'm not buying it. Ubisoft said that Brotherhood was going to be their greatest game. Failed. Said the same for Revelations. Failed. I'm not convinced at all that Desmond's part especially will be epic and make him seem cool. I think they're going to come up with some cliche ending for him. The past 2 games have pretty much let me down big time.

Wow, cynical much, Sarari?

I have to disagree with you on both games; Brotherhood was the best while Revelations has its ups and downs, it delivers what is needed; the ending of Altair and Ezio's era.

I am reserving judgement until I play the game. The way I see it, the lower I put my standards for the Desmond sections, the more pleasantly surprised by them I will be. :p

I wanna see how Desmond has matured since the events of ACR. Ubisoft better not drop that "the sun" "your son" and eve bussiness. Those are one of the most interesting unexplained details about Desmond.

But I'm sure we will be really surpised at what Desmond can do once we own the long awaited game of the year: Assassin's Creed 3!!

BRING IT!!

I have to agree with you: Desmond has gotten some experince from being withi his ancentors. Now it's time to use those skills and causes one death to halt a thousand Templars down!

They better give Desmond a good portion. He has potential but it's been squandered so much. I hope they flesh him out to be a capable and active assassin in the third one.

To be honest, i too am a little skeptical.

I didn't play Desmond's Journey in ACR, for the simple reason that it just looked unplayable from what i saw on youtube. FPS perspective and platforming DO NOT mix well. I (like most of us) was expecting Desmond's memories to be played in 3rd person, and actually RELIVING his memories, not dodging lasers and hopping around platforms with a 45 degree field of view.

Thankfully, i'll only have to wait 5 more weeks until the game comes out. :)

What's wrong with Desmond's Journey? I seem to like it. It's an change of pace for an while to get away from Ezio.

Yep, only 5 more weeks.. shoot, I want an sleep chamber right now so I can sleep until Oct. 27!

I'm glad you do, Assassin_M. Seems nobody likes first person view games, which is ironic since Poral series is one of them and I love it!!

Yeah, it's better to wait and see how it goes than to find out that everything you wanted is not in there.

Like you said, M, Expectation leads to disappointment. Disappointment leads into darkness. That is the Templar way. Stay away from it!!

How would that work though? if they actually let you play out his memories wouldn't that mean that one moment you're training to be an assassin and then the next you're pouring drinks at some shallow club. Desmond ran away to be a regular guy how do you make being normal awesome?

By making it to a movie! :D

Lol, in seriousness, I don't think it would work that way; I think they did it right for Revelations. Now, it's time for Assassin's Creed 3!

It's just that how it's done doesn't really make sense. Desmond has been trained to be a very skilled and agile free-runner through the bleeding effect and the animus core looks like it could be a perfect setting for some awesome parkour gameplay. Instead we got first-person platforming with extremely clunky controls. I liked the story and setting of Desmond's Journey but it's gameplay just kinda destroyed it for me.

I don't think it does. They had to do something for Desmond, so this is how they did it. I'm glad you enjoyed his story and the setting, but come on.

If you remember, the Portal series was like that minus the blocks and I enjoyed it all greatly! I think you just don't like first person view games like that.

At least Desmond's story will be larger in Assassin's Creed 3.

Some people has said this game is likely to win Game of the Year.. I'm inclied to agree with them. 3 years working on this, I'm sure it deserved some reward!

I have heard that if you pre-ordered Assassin's Creed 3 on Xbox 360, you can get it early! I'm PS3 player, sadly.. but if you are, great!

What are you looking forward to it?

Bit harsh don't ya think? Being a fan doesn't mean you have to love every aspect of something. He just didn't like the Desmond sections, what's wrong with that? He is allowed to state his opinion, isn't he? I don't really get what people see in saying they are a 'true' fan of a series, it is just a form of elitism in my eyes, and it is a real shame for it to occur on this forum. I fail to see how he is a hypocrite also :confused:

I think you're kinda missing my point, the main character in the Portal games (which i love) is not a highly trained and skilled free-runner, unlike Desmond.
That and the controls in Portal felt a lot more fluid. It just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to suddenly have Desmond play as a first-person character with clunky controls.

Ok, that was harsh. I'm sorry about that.

Nothing wrong about that; just tired of people hating on Desmond and his story.

Yes, he does have the right to do so.

Ok, that's true.

But it works for now as of Revelations. There's no need for it in Assassin's Creed 3, am I right?

I sooo agree with you and Aphex_Tim. The story is really interesting, but the FPS ruined everything. But from the gameplays I donīt think the gameplay will let me down :) although I am not sure I will like the naval battles... Well Iīll just have to wait until 23.11.

Ok ok, I might have went a bit overboard on my last comment. I actually replayed all the games because I got a new xbox, and I realized how fun each of them were. But I'm still a bit disappointed with Brohood and Revelations. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE them both, but Ubisoft exaggerated a lot about ACB and ACR. Don't ask me what because you know what I mean and everybody felt the same way. After brotherhood was released, there were threads about how it sucked and that it was short and too easy.

But I'm not fully on board with this game. I want it the game right now so bad, but I'm not going crazy like the past games.

I Just don't see it happening. They have made so much money off of these games which are truly revolutionary to modern day gaming. I mean Ubi always has the best game out there in my opinion, however i am totally biased because i think the 300 other first person shooter games out there are unoriginal, boring, and literally the same exact thing over and over again. I mean i could see how they would think that Assassins Creed has had a good run and that taking it to the present would be a bit too much, but at the same time with how successful these games have been and how much people get into the story line i think they would be foolish not to try. I for one am still holding out hope that They will have a game after this, probably by a different name or a different sub title with present day Desmond ending the struggle between the Templars and Assassins once and for all, taking the fight straight to there front door- or back door if you know what i am saying:). A little cloak and dagger and finally the struggle between freedom and order would be over allowing the free world to grow as they would without a top secret evil conspiracy manipulating them at every turn. Either way, as long as they leave guns out of the picture, i think we can all look forward to it either rapping up in this game or the next. I am extremely excited to see the next line of games ubisoft comes out with whether it is after ACIII or ACP(present day). And two weapons at once in a Ubi game? can i get a what what!? Havn't seen that since PrinceofPersia and I'm SO SIKED.
