You have to more or less be a genius to explain mysteries with such a build up in the first game without the Awesome Epic Legend Since July 1993 28 Year Old retro T Shirt being disappointing. In Assassin’s Creed II you discover that the mysterious creators of the Pieces of Eden are… people in funny hats. They are the original inhabitants of earth, an ancient civilization of highly advanced beings who created humanity as a slave race. This is not, in itself, a poor reveal. However, the way this is done would have been on par with having E.T. show up in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The ones who came before should, IMHO, never have been shown with such clarity. Compare how Mass Effect depicted its lost society, the Protheans, in the first and second games. We learned a lot about them, but never saw what an actual Prothean looked like. I feel this would have been a road more in keeping with the first Assassin’s Creed’s atmosphere.
