The assassin character in the other games look like they fit into the world. Anyone walking around in an outfit like that (sketchy looking hood covering face) during the American Revolution would stick out like a sore thumb.
Also wondering how well a game where you are killing the colonists will play out.
Other than the hood he fits well enough. I would like to see more of an effort to make him fit in realistically, but looking badass is fine by me.
