I mean, I have now completed both versions. The in game, historical game play is AWESOME. History, intrigue, double crosses, sabotage and of course, TONS of assassinations. This new one featured town building, an ever expanding arsenal, free roam environment that is HUGE.
Here I am, at the end of the second tail in this story, and I am NO closer to understanding what the "real world" me is up too, what the Templar's have to do with it and WHY my game keeps ending like a sudden drop off a cliff.
Anyone else experiencing the same thing? And now I have to wait another two years for the next edition to further the storyline?
Great game. Absolutely epic. But do us a favor and just dump the "real world' story and keep the programmers busy on more historical and interesting stuff.....
Actually, Desmond's role has become bigger since the first game. If you really pay attention to the end of the story in the latest installment, you will notice that everything that you have played up till this point is to ultimately lead you into the role of Desmond. What I mean to say is that everything you have been currently playing is setting you up for Desmond's overall story and what you will eventually have to do in the 'real world.' I think it is rather ingenious on the developer's part as it really gets you into the story and continues to keep you guessing on what the final result will be.

Oh yes, slapping a suppressor on a M107 and taking exactly two shots in the skull to drop an enemy is really accurate.
