I was HIGHLY expecting it to take place in China after the events of Embers but... damn. :/

No No and No! Why Egypt, China, America, and France? This will be just dragging it, imo it ruins the original feel and historical accuracy. Wasn't the third one said to be featuring modern times? Following Desmond "as we see him turn into the ultimate assassin" ? rolleyes.gif
Brotherhood and the New one was supposed to close Ezios chapter of the story. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Guns really ruin the whole sneaky stabby assassin feel of the game.

IMO, a modern AC can't take place in a cramped cave ( end of Revelations ). They need to have 1 more animus game to wrap up the storyline and then they can debut the modern assassin in all their nano-tech glory.

Like i said in another thread, a modern day AC set in a major city with the assassins using nano-tech suits that can blend them like Solid Snake would be epic. And as someone said about 'modern' assassins having to go up against enemies with ARs....well just give them Solid Snake nano-suits plus that new experimental see through glass that can stop bullets as a shield of sorts.

I would have preferred the Asian theme but they've been hinting at Continental forever so it's no surprise really. I've enjoyed all the games but I have to admit that AC: Revelations visually had the polish of all the others, it's hard to mess up graphics when you've got them so well established.

The storyline and game mechanics were lacking. I'll buy it. I'll play it. Wish it wasn't in the USA though.

Why haven't they introduced a Female as the lead character? IT would add much more depth and many more options and game mechanics. Some of the most successful assassins in history were female.

I thought before all this Ubisoft were yammering on about how Desmond is going to become the ultimate assassin in AC3. What happened to that? Are we only going to have some brief parts in the game where you actually get to play as Desmond in combat, or are there going to be numerous spin-off games for AC3 like they did with AC2, or will he only become the ultimate assassin at the end of the game?

I'm quite sick of all the milking of franchises, it's terrible. I hope that there won't be a lose of quality like there was in Revaltions (IMO there was). I just want to finish Desmond's story and be done with AC.
