As all the other guys, I played this for the story.

It didn't disappoint me - much.

The story practically was: 3 guys who either tried getting their honor back, vengeance, justice, seeking answers, or freedom/protecting their "people", all three of them did all they could from their early twenties to fourties-fifties, and after eliminating all threat, they had an encounter with the First Civilization telling them that they were mere pawns who have done their work so their descendant from the future could get a message but die to save the world because he ran out of time since those three guys and their respective alliances spent too much time fighting that no time was left to stop the apocalypse.

TL;DR: Their lives were just a waste, and none of them were actually remembered in the future, and being an Assassin is the job of an unemployed person who knows his way with a sword and how to climb. Optional: He should be crazy, like Connor.

And for all the achievement players, they had to go through a 17 minutes long credits to get the end achievement.

I really adored the new features, although the lack of recruiting new assassins, and you could only have 6 of them, and how did you earn them? Why, by liberating parts of New York and Boston of course! And I don't think you can customize their appearances either, although being able to give them contracts on-the-run was a good feature.

Naval warfare was a great feature, so was hunting.

I can't type more, although I seem to have a reply for every question/argument raised.

I'll try when I can.

As I stated earlier, naval Warfare indeed rocks, despite being so unrealistic.
But with hunting, here is were we disagree. It was totally useless. Absolutely no need to do it. And for me, boring as well. Animals could see you even when you were on trees and you had to waste the scarce arrows you had to kill the small animals (which were the majority). And these small animals didn't have so many goods you could get by skinning. The big reward were the deers, wolfs etc.

Pretty much you got the big picture.

I want more Middle Ages, without the bloody Crusades. Then, there'd be a lot of assassinations.

As a matter of fact, no. I guess there were very few assassinations. Because the greatest mentors were dead (Alta`i`r, Al-Mualim, etc.) the order must have fallen from their previous glory. Ezio in Revelations reveals that the Assassin Order was reborn in Masyaf but how long did that last?

Animals could see you on trees? Never happened to me before. About the arrows, don't you get them back when you skin them? And if you do lose them, you could get extra from horses? Most of the time, I assassinated animals with the hidden blade, anyway, because It first thought that using arrows would damage the pelt (which I discovered late in the game did not). And beavers also have a huge reward, the second largest if I remember correctly. They are slow, small animals.

You may be right because I never liked hunting anyway. But it was still boring. And there was no need to do it.

Alright, I give up. I need help.

I'm currently on the mission where Connor chases Lee through the burning ship. I chase him, but if I touch him I get desynchronized. If I jump, I get desynchronized. If I trail behind, I get desynchronized. If I fall in the water, I get desynchronized. If I touch fire, I get desynchronized. If I touch the wall, I get desynchronized. If I climb, I get desynchronized.

I must have tried the mission a dozen times and it never works. Is my game glitched or something? Am I just doing something wrong?

Your game is totally glitched. That never happened to me. I could touch fire and I would only take damage. Also I've only caught up with him on top of the ship with a cutscene. Additionally, you are bound to climb in order to reach him. Close the PS3 and try it again after some time. It may heal.

Crap. I was scared that's what happened. Thanks for the info though!

You have to explore the Templar caves in New York and Boston and find the trinkets. It's that simple. To do so, you'll need to find all of the fast travel locations first, which is a major headache.

I have to use the underground in the cities to get the Frontier trinkets? Oh dear.

Oh, the Frontier trinkets underground? I thought you meant in the cities.

They're in caves.
