And to add to that lack of replayability, the savegame file is stored in the Ubisoft servers and not in the hard drive, and most bizarre of all, the P.C. version of the game requires a constantly open Internet connexion to play, meaning you own this game only for as long as Ubisoft decides to keep its servers up and running for it. By the way, your video is like the game itself: the concept has winning potential but is ultimately disappointing--could he not have tried to free-run and knock people over? <grin>
Ytterbiumanalyst, the tedious idea of a pope behind a conspiracy is one thing, and then there's that of suddenly turning a quasi-religious plot set in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance involving secret societies and more fitting in with the supernatural if with anything fantastic into a Raelian nutter's wet dream distorting the entire scope and context of the two games and morphing these into things concerning extra terrestrials and man's ultimate origins--this is Zak McKracken on speed. I do enjoy the theme ('70s fad?) of lost advanced civilisations of prehistory from distant eras lost from Man's memory, but it belongs elsewhere and certainly without the pollution of sci-fi or aliens.
What you both said, re: writing, intellectual laziness, and incoherent philosophy. Incidentally, an historical organised band of dedicated Nizaari Isma`ilis being a brotherhood of nihilists who recognise that nothing is true? Even in fiction, that's tenuous.
