The Story So Far Part 4 of 5 - Assassin's Creed

Desmond questions the truth of the Animus and Altair makes peace with Malik. To prepare for Assassin's Creed 3, we've put together major cut-scenes and gameplay from all of the previous entries in the series to catch you up with the story.

My experience has proven that the patrons of Gamespot and the gaming community have such a mind as could most likely conjure a more colorful and graphic 'story' than what needs to be covered of this terrible game, much less in '5' installments.

Looking back at AC1, the game has changed...for the better!

This series is actually making me realize how many and how long the cutscenes were!! Game looks even more epic like this!!

I liked all the games, though I do agreee that Brotherhood and Revelations didn't add a whole lot to the series. BUT, one issue I do have is that the first one really developed a relationship with their targets. Made you even question if you were on the right side. All the other games, the targets just seem like obstacles to you proceeding to the next part of the game.

They're still in Assassin's Creed 1? Is Part 5 going to cover all 3 other games?

 @BeNOwNz AC2 is all next week starting on Monday at 9AM Pacific, Brotherhood and Revelations will be the next two weeks after that.

 @truckingpete no,, no it is about killing, not why the kill. AC1 had an outstanding story. It has good changes in gameplay I agree

 @mhmd1 Totally agree about the relationships in AC1. That was such a great part of the story, that whole dynamic of understanding your greatest enemy has the same goal as you, but you fight because of a disagreement on how the goal should be achieved. Perhaps they felt that they had explored that theme so heavily in the first and it would seem like too similar a game if that theme was so present again, but I think it could have been done. I did find myself not as excited about the story further into the series, AC1 is my favourite.

 @monleon No, part 5 wraps up AC1. Each game will be divided into 5 parts. It's supposed to be more like episodic movies of the story as opposed to just an overview.

 I think it's because of the difference in the characters. Altair never had the amount of hatred for the Templars blinding him like Ezio had. Good thing Connor is like a mix of both those characters, the final installment should be interesting...

 

But I want to know more about Desmond!
