I really enjoyed Assassin’s Creed III, but there’s a few things that really disappointed me. And one of those things was how they killed off Daniel Cross. He had so much potential and I was really hoping to see an awesome fight between Daniel and Desmond. You know, like a fight between Assassins. And instead, Daniel suffer from the Bleeding Effect and runs away. And you chase after him and them kill him. I’m sorry but that’s not cool. Aside from that I really enjoyed the game.

Daniel Cross is such a missed opportunity, and it really shows that they really just didn’t care about the modern storyline. Here’s a character who is the dark reflection of Desmond, effectively Desmond’s opposite. Hell, there’s a FULL GAME in these two repeatedly clashing and showing them in opposition to one another. And what do we get with them? They have a couple of brief skirmishes, then their big showdown is Cross pointing a gun at him, then suffering a convenient mental breakdown and running away until he gets casually killed. I let him run around long after I’d dealt with the guards, hoping something would happen my first time through, and nothing. It’s just sad.
