That's probably the main reason why I play it. The story lines have always been top-notch, and in III the storyline is the best part of the game. The action is pretty good, but it gets bland after you've killed 10,000 British soldiers.

Think that's bad? Why can I set American people on their own Patriot soldiers? That's just weird.

Charles Lee's death was illogical, he's a military man and would have easily killed Connor with a pistol/knife or alerted the pile of Redcoats by the fort near the Last Drink Tavern. To be honest, I liked Charles, I didn't get why he went from a happy, loyal man to "Living in the dirt like animals" It was weird.

Not just one, but 200% agreed. He was a good, loyal character who could have indeed alerted the entire Fort, but it seems Ubisoft wanted him to have accepted his fate.

And the Templars that Connor killed, if they were telling the truth, should have lived. Connor effectively secured the destruction of his people

No he didn't.He killed so many people (William Johnson, John Pitcairn, Washington's messengers etc.) not because he was a real Assassin and despised the Templars, but because he wanted to secure the fate of his people. Despite that, at the end of the storyline (after the final cutscene) he goes to the village only to find it abandoned.
Conversing with a Frontiersman reveals that the government (the Patriots had already won the war) intended to use the land and so they kicked out the Kanien:kehaka or whatever their name is.

At least half of the assassinations performed by Connor for nothing. Ironic isn't it?

Connor was a pretty worthless character, all things considered. I liked Haytham more, his manner and his beliefs seemed a lot more thought-out and believable. His team was more awesome too, especially Hickey and his subtitled lines like "Wot?"

Either way, Connor's battles did little for him.

But I like the aspects of the game, especially the Frontier and the lively cities. But my all-tim favorite part is the Naval Combat, even though the Aquila is the least realistic ship I have seen. I hope Ubisoft picks up on the mechanics and gives us a pirate game with all the mechanics of the Naval Combat things plus an some other seafaring thingamajigs. Like GOING INTO THE CAPTAIN'S CABIN.

I agree that Connor was undeniably the worse character in all of Assassins Creed. They failed to connect me to Connor in the same way I was connected with Ezio and Altair (is that how you spell it?). With Ezio, it didn't take long to forge a connection between the player and the character. With Connor, however, his character was simply unlikeable. He wasn't charming, witty, wise, etc. I don't think I saw him smile even once in the whole entire game.

But even though we all hate Connor, I think at the core, the story/plot was all wrong. It was too simple. Guys mom dies, guy wants revenge, guy forges alliances, guy gets betrayed, guy gets his revenge. Typical.

But I like the aspects of the game, especially the Frontier and the lively cities.

I totally agree. I didn't hate the game, certainly not. Most of it was enjoyable. I LOVED the hunting system they created in the game, same with the naval missions.

I really hope the next Assassins Creed (if there is one) can step up to the plate. It would be really interesting to see an Assassins Creed in the beginning of early civilizations. But thats just me ;)

Altair (is that how you spell it?).

Actually it is Altaïr but Altair is good enough :p had to say it.

But I agree, Conner wasn't the best character they used. But I liked the weapons he used. I mean I favor the bow over the op crossbow or the hidden gun. I'm glad they didn't put those in. And the Tomahawk was really nice.

But even though we all hate Connor, I think at the core, the story/plot was all wrong. It was too simple. Guys mom dies, guy wants revenge, guy forges alliances, guy gets betrayed, guy gets his revenge. Typical.

But I think it is wrong to put the story in this way. If you shuffle it you can get the story of AC II

ACII. Guy gets betrayed, Guys familie dies, guy wants revenge, guy forges alliance, guy gets revenge. Although they spread it over multiple games.

Btw sorry if I miss important stuff, haven't played 2 since I completed it. (started at release).

I loved it, especially the naval battles. But it's the first AC game I've played. I'm buying AC2, AC Brotherhood, and AC Revelations soon.

Might buy the story DLC too, I plan on buying The Tyranny of King Washington, not really worried about the multiiplayer stuff, though I do like Wolfpack every now and then on AC3. Not sure if it's on the others.

Hmmm, I guess you're right. I never thought of it that way :)

It looks so good. I wish I could give you a critique on it, sadly I haven't bought it yet. The story of a broke teenager, I guess.

Maybe its the stupid protagonist who is in turn making the whole story bad. Let's face it; Connor is by far the worst character in the series. I sometimes couldn't even figure out how was he feeling. In turn, the first playthrough for the story gets worse.
