And then you are forced to fight him and what does he do? He uses a knife. That's the moment I realised he's just a man. A man who nearly took my Sully away :@. DIE **bleep** DIE! ^^
Completely agree with AKyemeni. I thought he was gonna transform into some huge **bleep** Djinn at some point LOL. Nah but there was something so odd about him.

That's what I'm saying. Like the way he disappears and when he didn't die from that bullet. They don't explicitly tell you why he can do those things. It is implied he is a magician, a very shadowy character. That's what I mean by his mysterious back story. He does have a back story. It's just not explained in the story like Drake's.
So you are willing to tell me that this man can get shot and live, and magically teleport, yet he can't save Marlowe with his magic, nor can he kill Drake when he has a knife, but earlier when he doesn't beats the crap out of Drake? That seems very plausible. xD
Or maybe they did
If you didn't notice: Drake actually "won" the first fight in Yemen when Talbot was saved by Ramses.
In the second fight though, Talbot with the knife, was about to kill Drake, had Sully not shot him in the arm.
Also => Talbot had his tricks but it wasn't magic. I'm sure you know that though, just wanted to clarify since you never know these days xD
Well, here's my explanation. He was overcome with emotion during the Marlowe part and during the final fight. He did not have a handle on the situation compared to the teleportation and bullet scenes. When you are overcome with emotion, you are not at the optimal state of efficiency. As for the chase scene, well, you so that devious intent video. They had it just for the sake of of a chase scene.
This. The whole game was written around the cinematic events such as the chase scene, the boat, the buring Chatue, and the airplane. This to me made the story a globe trotting inconsistency. It shows in the characters. Also charcters in the game that served no purpose, such as that pirate or Cutter. They should have killed Cutter, would have made the story better or not have him there at all as he was useless to the story. Atleast you can expain why Talbot dies, something ND's writing clearly didn't do.
