  • A little disappointed with the ending of Assassin's Creed 3 (Spoiler)

    As a long time fan of the Assassin's Creed games I couldn't wait to see what AC3 had in store for me. I know I may be a little behind in the world of gaming, with work and school its a little hard to keep up, so I apologize if this is old news to anyone.

     I can honestly say that I love AC3, the graphics are phenomanal, doing the naval missions and seeing the tides was amazing, and the combat was so smooth. Taking down enemies was blast! Its one of those games I will never get rid of and will play over and over again. Heck before AC3 came out I went through and played the first 4 over again for the third time! However, with all this aside I cannot help but be a little disappointed with the conclusion to the Assassin's Creed series.

    I often dreamed that all of Desmond's effort and sacrifice would lead him and his crew to something that would save planet earth, and once saved, the Assassin's would emerge victorious. Which I'm sure pretty much everyone thought. And also that the Templars and Assassin's would somehow work together to achieve peace. To find some sort of revelation. But I never expected the ending that I got. A complete blindside you could say.

    Are you telling me that through all Desmond's, and even gamers, efforts in attempt to save the world was nothing more than a mission to free a tyrant from the first civilization so that she could begin anew?! Either way though humanity would have been screwed. If Desmond were to side with Minerva, Juno would have been kept in her prison while the earth burned once again. Desmond would live the rest of his life preaching the word of peace only to have it thrown aside while humanity repeated itself in the years after his death. To side with Juno isn't much better. Sure she might saved earth, but only to enslave it for her personal gain. Not to mention that Desmond had to sacrifice his own life to free Juno from her prison. Either way, humanity gets screwed.

    I do realize that we cannot blame everything on the first civilization. Centuries were wasted battling over indifferences while we could have spent that time making compromises to achieve true peace. But still, freakin' Juno! Ubisoft please tell me there will be an Assassin's Creed 5 so I can use my hidden blade on the dumb bimbo!
