View Full Version : Cristina Missions & Renaissance related?

Alright, I just finished the Assassin's Creed book: Renaissance. It mainly followed the storyline of the game, but I noticed he added bits in. Some of these are giving Ezio's parents a proper berial, and revisting Cristina.

I then realised all these extra bits are the Cristina missions from ACB, and because the book was published before the game, do you think Ubisoft took the ideas from the book?

You are correct - they took these bits from the book into AC:B. They did it because you only see Cristina once, which is a bit '=S' if she's the love of his life.

That's true. The Cristina missions are heartbreaking. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

I usually tend to attempt to upheld a pretence of stereotypical masculinity but that final mission did genuinely move me too lol.

It is stated on the AC Wiki (taken from a random dev, I guess..) that ubi added Christina's memories in reply to fans who though she didn't play an important role in ACII. It also says that these memories where taken from AC: Renaissance book.

Completely. I got a few tears, my mum walked into my room and I had an awkward moment while I had to make up a reason of me crying, and obviously not saying that it was a video game.

I mean it, for me it was the most emotional, I tried not to cry and sucked the tears in, but I was incredibly close... specially when she shows him the necklace... gosh... and then when she says her final words... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Then... "Requiescat In Pace... My Love..."

Not even what happened at the end of AC:B made me feel the same way... although at the end I was screaming: "WTF!? NOO! NOOOO!"

Exactly. At the end of ACB for me, it was only a massive WTF moment. But the last cristina memory.. the necklace was brilliant, I think personally. Ezio gave it to her like 30 years before, she's kept it close to her heart all that time even through marrage.. I've never known anything like it in a movie OR a video game. I think ubisoft created a masterpiece scene, there. I was honestly forced to kick my Xbox there, but common sense just about took over.

Nah - the ending of AC:B is more of a WTH ending which leaves you wanting more - Cristina makes me want to chuck AC:B out of the window because I'm so sad and angry about what happened!!

It was pretty emotional, I was on the edge of crying to death.

After the cutscene I was just frozen in my place, I dropped my controller and tears were starting to form.

Although the necklace looks like it has a Templar cross on it. :/

Man I just watched the 5 Cristina Missions again on Youtube and I almost cried again...

That whole Cristina Mission Sequence is the only thing in a LONG LONG time that has been able to do that...

And infuriating. Every time I came back to the present day (you know what I actually mean), I went on a guard killing spree, just straight rage killing everyone.

I think that Ubisoft killed cristina because of the book. That was real sad and disappointing you know. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I wish that she would had lived or that Ezzio would had used the apple to bring her back.

It would be awesome if there where a 6th where Ezzio had to recover a paint of her that Leonardo painted some time ago. Do it in venice and we are set to go.
