  • As someone who completed AC3 I actually thought the first half of the game was much better than the second half. I think maybe the two Jeff's will agree once they play further into the game, because all of the characters from the beginning play such huge roles in the rest of the game and unlike what Jeff Cannata had said I actually wished the first segment was actually longer not shorter.

    As far as Connor's story there were so many holes with big plot points that it was very frustrating to see how often the developers just missed the mark on really telling a great story. Honestly it felt like they just skipped over huge plots in the story and just passed it off as common knowledge between the characters to the point where when there is a confrontation between two major characters I was actually surprised when one of them didn't know about an event that happened to Connor in his youth. Not to mention by the end of the game you really wonder what is Connor even fighting for, a why he would do some of the things he ends up doing.

    One thing I really did like was this was the first Assassin's Creed game where I would have an assassination and actually feel bad about who I killed and really wonder if Connor was actually doing the right thing by killing these targets. By the end of the game I was left wondering if the Templars not the Assassins were really the good guys after all.

    What's everyone's feeling on this? Try not to spoil too much, I'm sure many have yet to even begin this game.
