They aren't exactly the same as the game because:

A)The films are scripted and easier to make CGI.

B)The game is an open-world, so you can go to any spot meaning virtually all of the city is loaded at once. This would take up a lot of space on the disc.

Interesting casting choices. I guess I'm used to seeing remotely attractive actors in most roles. HAHA!!

As for the set extentions can someone link the article that talked about using the in game environments? I know I read it somewhere.

And from the look of the coin at the end I'm guessing Giovanni's next stop is Venice. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

just to expand on that

for point A the fims will take a lot longer to render (create the 3D environment) that it actually takes for them to play so they can show graphics in real time that no computer is capable of.

Point B yes it is generally true the entire world has to be loaded at the same time but a lot of firms will only render what is in your field of vision saving on processing power but the textures for the surrounding area still have to be pre cached to allow the game to load and render the meshes fast enough.

So far this hasn't explained a lot about the plot yet, but then again it's just the first movie in the series.

Some of the movements were slightly too obvious that they were with ropes, like the jumping between the rooftops.
Also, the stones he climbed, looked a bit too clean. They should've been grittier.

Yes, I'm a perfectionist. And yes I'm well aware I probably wouldn't be able to achieve this quality.

I wonder if we get to see the guard who broke the murderer's neck in-game? Looks like an ally, and someone who's sincere (which is quite rare with all the corruption going on).

By the way, after having seen the short movie multiple times now... I'm really starting to wonder what the use of the headcap is. I understand the rest of the armor, which contains places for weapons and is probably fortified against sharp weapons, but the headcap?

In Altaďr's time there were more people with it, not to mention it was actually useful there due to the extreme sun. But it isn't that extreme in Italy.
Hell, I'd go as far as to say Giovanni (and Ezio eventually) actually stands out in a crowd that way.

Whoever said Ezio's mom is ugly is completely blind. She's amazingly beautiful and Giovanni is damn lucky! Although, he looks quite good himself when he's not in makeup for AC: Lineage, judging from those pictures.

Ezio, though. Eh. He's way too "pretty". And I use that term lightly. If I wanted to date a delicate flower, I'd date a woman. ;P

So far, Lineage is looking pretty cool. It seemed like they were going a bit more for "bad-***" than actual story, but whatevs. The environments look a lot better than I was expecting, and the film quality doesn't put me off as much as I thought it would. In all, I am intrigued to see more!

Probably because he was an ally of Medici and had allot of power to help him as well. In these three episodes, they could be telling us how the Medici family gets messed...I mean, the real Lorenzo died in 1492 after all

It is good for what it is, but as said you can easily tell were ropes are used and the CGI surrounding are too sterile to look realistic (altho a lot of TV programs also have that problem)

as for Ezios mom it's that hair style that makes her look worse than she is as she just doesn't suit it.

@Coolgerb: some1's name or game preference isn't exactly something that needs brining up for no reason and besides warcraft was a RTS long before the MMO was ever made so your judging from a name that the person must play the game that has only been out about a third of the franchises lifetime. (about 10 years before the MMO to be exact http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif )

By killing him, the guard basically left Giovanni at a dead end.

That's why he sorted through Milan's belongings, looking for any hints. And ultimately the coin tells him where to go to find answers.

my theory on the scar is that it is placed there to make it more believable to Desmond that he is there, as if you were remembering you doing something but you had some1 else face you wouldn't believe it and wouldn't be able to stay with it.

Yeah, I thought you play as a baby, then before Lineage when you have to fight some kids from a rival family or something. That's when he gets his scar -- from getting a rock thrown at him.

That was pretty much what I expected, really...
It seemed like the people who made it bought a camera (I'd assume they already had editing equipment), and then spent what they had left on everything else. Actors were pretty low rate, but poorly directed, the guy holding the camera had no idea what he was doing, but it seemed like that was being compensated for by slo-mo, which was taken to the max, Michael Bay style.
Just for the record, if you're gonna use lots and lots and lots of Slo-mo, take tips from Zack Snyder; not Michael Bay.
Costumes...they were crap, frankly. Entirely unauthentic and unconvincing, and not once was I able to see Giovanni as anything more than some guy in silly clothes running around on rooftops. The hood (what is effectively equivalent to the bat-cowl, in AC terms) was especially disappointing, although I expected that screw-up, frankly.
Script? Scripting was also garbage.

I GET that it's free, and I don't have to watch it and all that good stuff, but whether I'm paying for it monetarily or not, I'm still spending time watching something, and if I feel like I'm wasting my free time, then there's still something wrong. Just cause something is free doesn't make it immune to criticism.

It's basically the inverse of people who make movies transferring over to making games.

Who are you to suggest the actors were poorly directed?! lol. Were you there? Do you even know who the director was?? ...
Do I CARE who the director was? You get your answer anyway (thanks, d1sturbedme_468), and at the end of the day, whether it's Spielberg or Boll, it's crap regardless of the name behind it.

For the record (which is meaningless to you, but at least puts me in some designation), I'm studying film at the moment, and if there's one thing I know in the world, it's dialogue. That dialogue was just crap; written in the pretense that the story it's telling is big and epic. Could be true, but telling the audience AT THE BEGINNING isn't the way to get that message across. That sort of thing works (and has worked) in trailers, and that's what the live action thing starts out as. It's what UBI does best, so it's where they start. But the problem is that trailers need to make something look good in a very short amount of time. Movies have to make something entertaining for a much longer amount of time. The same techniques don't carry over flawlessly.
In other words: large, extended stints of exposition are a no-no. Start throwing facts at an audience that could care either way regarding your little piece of film making, and they are gonna tune out real quick.

Then there's also the fact that the costumes are not fitted to the actors; especially Giovanni's, which looks like it was made for a far taller person. The actors also seemed...somewhat out of place. By which I mean rather miscast and unable to save the somewhat jilted scripting. "You're coming with me; avanti!" doesn't flow. You either leave it with "You're coming with me!" or you have the victim hesitate long enough for Giovanni to get impatient enough to snarl: "Avanti!" and get the lazy jerk onto his feet. And for the love of god, I know this is a fight scene, but it's no excuse to break the 180 degree rule so often. It's disorientating; that's why there's a rule against it.
This scene is followed by one composed almost entirely of closeups. Giovanni manages a sorta thousand mile stare well enough for a guy who kills people for a pasttime (I'm guessing the actor must've fought in 'Nam or something).
More exposition, but exposition stylishly covered up by placing it within the scene. Made me wonder who the Assassin was, and whether giving it to the guy who's meant to be saving the lives of high-profile figures was kind of defeating the purpose of the Hashshashin. But then, I'm reading into it too deep.
First, the guy who's being assassinated. Who is he? The Duke of someplace (Milan, I think), but the place isn't really relevant. He's a Duke. Big whoop. I'm introduced to a guy by being told that he's important and he's gonna die. Again, telling me too much. What am I, listening to an audiobook? How's'about giving me something to see besides a montage?
So, violence brings with it, slo-mo. Which was my Bay/Snyder point. The vast majority of the fight was in slow motion. WHY? I don't need to be able to see every single thing in intricate, slowed down detail. Scenes like this (not just fights, but scenes that are meant to be exciting) are basically pay-off --> pay-off --> pay off; they're the biggest, heaviest, steepest part of the roller coaster. Bay would slow it down so it went as slow as possible and you could relish in every moment. Except every moment isn't interesting; Snyder speeds the uninteresting ones back to normal speed, and only slows down for what's worth relishing in.
At least, that's my interpretation. I'm just using it as an example.
Oh yeah, they also managed to film an assassination/fight scene composed almost entirely of reaction shots.
But you know what? Absolutely NONE of that matters. Why? Yes, it's just opinion and you're allowed to have your own, completely different opinion and that's fine by me, but that's not the point I was making. No, the reason none of it matters is because they got the hood wrong.
Just go back and look at it (I'm inviting you to go back and watch this awesome piece of free filmmaking, so go do it to help prove me right*).
Done?
Okay, so...What the heck is that? It's just a piece of cloth (possibly even felt, judging from the rest of the costume) that's been cut to basically curve out over the brow. Where's its point? Where's the stitching that maintains the shape of the hood?
Also, and it might just be me, but those drinking glasses look somewhat anachronistic.

*yes, this is me being a jerk. No, I don't mean it agressively; that's just how my sense of humour works.

and etc etc for pretty much all of your unfounded / unreasonable criticisms. I don't remember asking you to read them. But unfounded and unreasonable? Care to elaborate?
I just happen to look at things like this and ask: "How would I do it?" Oh and, for the love of hell, don't tell me "Well I'm glad you didn't," because then you're just being silly.

Well, I think LaurenIsSoMosh has pretty much summed up what I want to say already (and much nicer than me too lol).

These questions are blatantly rhetorical, so I'm not too bothered that you don't care lol. I raised them to highlight the level of ignorance on which your opinion was based.

You being a film student doesn't mean much other than the fact that you might struggle to find a job when your course finishes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Films are such a loved and widely accepted aspect of our culture these days that most people can express a fairly well informed opinion. But, even a seriously devout film buff cannot make any objective claims because that is not how an opinion works.

Lineage is probably not going to win any awards, and it will not rock the foundations of film making as we know it. Is it even a film? (another one of those pesky rhetoricals - feel free to answer it if you want though lol)

It is made for the fans, and in this capacity it definitely delivers. I enjoyed it, as did a lot of others here.

Did you just deny him the right to state his opinion? I think that it's because he is a devout film buff that he can make objective claims. The films got both its ups and downs, plus, I like it when someone is pointing out the flaws in something so that we can analyze it better when we see the next one.

There is no such thing as an objective opinion about an art form regardless of your level of expertise.

I welcome his opinion, but in mine I think he was being overly critical.

I called him a **** because of his childish response of 'I didnt ask you to read it.. blah'

there is a chance it could be on the extra DVD that comes with the special editions. it is unlikely they will stick it on the actual game disc as they have probably setup the game to maximise disc capacity to hold the game.

I´m from Germany so I hope you will understand what I wanna ask.

Here we go. I watched Lineage now for several times and there´s something I don´t understand.
When Sforza is in the church he knees down in front of an altar. Is there someone standing or does Sforza just pray?
And the guys who murder him, who are they. They must be important persons, because they´re allowed to step forth.
For me, the whole scene is strange - it´s the day after christmas, right? Sforza visits this church to pray. And then a group of men step forth and take a bow before Sforza?! Why?

Also, when the credits roll, there is a pope listed (Pope Sixtus IV) - but where can I see him in the movie?

I hope someone of you can explain this to me. And sorry if I wrote something wrong, my English is just basic!
