Maybe its just me, but I came to bit of a startling realization yesterday.

Assassin's Creed is absolutely filled with beautiful people.

And not just beautiful people, but people who would be considered ridiculously attractive even by modern day standards. And the games are set in a time period where having a full set of teeth was considered a huge deal. I can see have a few nice looking characters; Ezio, because he is the protagonist, The Madame etc....but even the random mobs of people look better than people today do. With the exception of beggars, or people specifically singled-out to look bad.

And its true in MP too; Light above, the Courtesan and the Thief would drop every male (hell, probably most female) jaws straight to the floor. The Footpad's perfectly sorted hair. Hell, even the Priest and Nobleman, "ugly" as they are look like they spend hours getting their appearances up.

Yes, it doesn't haven't any impact on gameplay. No the game isn't supposed to be totally historically accurate. But its just one of those things where you look at the Courte------crowd and go "Hey....somethings not right here."

the MP characters, kind of, but not all of em. and in SP, they certainly all arent. but hey, if I wanted to see ugly people, I'd go to new jersey.

Funny thing that I noticed too. Whenever you knock ladies down, like running away in a crowd, they should be wearing like a whole wardrobe under their dresses (to be proper and all), or at least stockings. They aren't.

Don't look at me like that. I don't do it for pleasure, it's just something I noticed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

The amount of times I've caught my brother knocking women over and going http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif at them is uncountable.

well yes, they are beautiful, but if the game had highly obese sweaty renaissance people then Ezio would have a harder time knocking them over http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I'm sorry, what? There are people whose jaws would drop when looking at the Thief?

Good joke! The thief is almost uglier than the priest.

But yes, the courtesan is very good looking.

Do you just crawled from beneath a rock after being there for 20 years?

Looks are all what it is about in the world, and especially in the entertainment industry. MMovies and tv series are the best example of this.

who wants to see ugly people hwen they are watching something? inner beauty, blah blah blah, its all crap. noone buys high def tvs to see hideous people.

porn has alot of good looking people. if people wanted to bang really ugly people they'd go to a bar in new jersey.

so load up media with attractive people. maybe we can breed super good looking humans just by surrounding ourselves with them.

The teeth bit is true. You're lucky to go your life with a full set these days, anyway. Imagine living in the rein of Cesare! He used all the toothpaste as gunpowder when he went out of stock.

@OP
When Ubi makes 'Bertha the hairy hippo' as a Templar killer for MP I expect you to play as her ALL the time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Yeah, they're all pretty but I can forgive those kinds of development errors, in fact I appreciate the effort put into the Hellequin and Courtesans assets, I think the next set of MP characters should look like female super heroes...i.e, DD's and 0 body fat, beautiful curly golden locks and skimpy bathing suits....lets add some 'cop a feel' move sets while we are at it, could increase your chances as being assigned as their next target and really add some in game motivation/contract back story like 'the officer pinched her bum and now she wants to stab him in the throat' and instead of a punch stun she could kick you in the nads or something.

i wish we could play as the fat guy from AC2 that Claudias boyfriend was cheating on her with. That was a guy right? Mama always said if there's an apple, there has to be a banana too.

remember all those funky lepers from the original? and the residents of sagsville that were always getting harassed by guards? good times.

do you want to play a game with people that are so ugly you don't want to look at the screen? its just a selling point.

I didn't say they had to be all ugly....but seeing a ton of people who would easily be at the 9/10 level on a modern day scale in a time period where a 4 as valuable as gold is odd.
