I'd say the way they presented t'was what may of hurt the game as a whole. I can wholeheartedly say I ain't amused by how split up Desmond's story is from game 't game. Over the course of many games, the amount'a stuff that's happened wouldn't even make one full games' story if it had to rely solely on the present really. I feel that poor quality hasn't touched the ancestors' stories luckily. Not that Altairs' life in particular was award-winning anywho.Why "Assasin" though? Random impulse?
