Yep, that’s one of the many things I’ve always thought to be really stupid about Assassin’s Creed, even though the last game of the series was super fun.
Wasn't the Italian one named Ezio, not Altair?
Did the plot get any better after the second game? I more or less enjoyed the gameplay of the first two, but the endings were too much for me. Did things get better in the later ones?
