Cesare’s aided by a handful of prominent sycophants and killers, who – while still being fun to stalk and kill – aren’t as well developed or as interesting as the conspirators of ACII. The only real standouts are Cesare’s sister Lucrezia, who’s portrayed as archly cruel and more than a little unbalanced, and his cousin Juan, a fat, lecherous Cardinal who’s notable mainly for waltzing around in a loincloth when you confront him.
Oddly enough, most of the charm and character development this time around comes not from Ezio’s storyline, but the other one. You know the one I’m talking about. The one nobody seems to like.
