After investing so much time in Desmond's story, the ending and plot to wrap it up is beyond weak. The load screens just to run a cut scene and then go back to another load screen is a prime example of poor planning on the developers part. With some of the game play involving just running to the next cut scene. I was very disappointed in AC3. DO NOT BUY, just rent this one. The multiplayer is not enough of a leap to make up for the rest of the huge fail in the single player.
