I think that Altair looks and acts like the Prince of Persia. the first time I saw the screenshots, It reminded me of the Prince. The platforming and the way he does his moves looks like the Prince of Persia. Anybody agree or disagree?

The game is being developed by the same team of SoT. It's natural to have similar ideas.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

One key difference, however, is that they aren't allowing altair to move in unrealistic fashions. It work for the prince, as those titles weren't really grounded in any sense of realism, but here Altair will jump only as high as a real person, and no wall running.

katz_bg is right. It's being made by the Montreal Ubi group which made all of the other PoP games (the last 3), so this would obviously take a bit from those. Although the Prince seemed to only be dark and brooding in Warrior Within. In TTT or SoT he had a less nasty attitude, (even though in TTT he was a LITTLE dark).

So Altair seems to be leaning toward the WW Prince. I think it would be cooler if they made a hero though that wasn't dark and brooding. Every game character nowadays seems to be this attitude driven mood-machine. We need more characters like Dante from Devil May Cry 3. Now THAT was a welcome change from the mainstream. There is just so much you can do with a main character, but so little people actually use.

I think it would be cool if Altair had almost a psychotic joy in his job. Like when your sneaking up he's silent and all, but when your running from the enemy make him laugh every once and a while, especially when you do gymnastics. And since he is a Muslim essentially, make him have lines that sound like something a Muslim assassin would say.

Just as long as they dont do a copy-paste of Garrett from the Thief series with a different outfit color. That would really piss me off.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You will explain how you have decided that "Altail" fights "cooler" now, that I might deign to understand you.
Also, Altair is stocky, slightly beefy and probably abless.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

So you know... (Not sure if this story leaked anywhere but he... it's an old game now)

T2T: Conception phase was originally made in Morocco (Ubi) but they required more staff and couldn't recruit enough down there, so they ship part of the pre-prod and production to Ubi Mtl... along with some of the T2T core team members.

They gathered the old POP series' team and asked them to produce this title.

dose the prince have a blade that comes out of his arm. Anyway Altair dosen't jump unrealiticly like the Prince of Persia . They are both sick and both are going to be good games . http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif Uuburu

Wow UnaUuru, you managed to get someone to white-flag. XD

I almost feel honored that you liked my post.

Back on subject:
You cant decide which is cooler because I've only seen one. I think I said this before on another thread but to decide I would have to see what Altair can do. My prediction is that he is going to be a completely different fighting style than the Prince in the sense that only in TTT did the Prince ever really use stealth. Whereas Altair relys on it almost as much as Garrett from Thief.

Thats my worry though. So far he looks like a brooding dark guy, who sneaks around, and can use a sword as well as using some hidden mechanical gizmo. Garrett was dark and brooding, he sneaks around, used a sword in the first two games, as well as has a hidden gizmo (his mechanical eye given to him in Thief I). So I kinda worry that the two will seem too similar.

So in short, Prince is cooler on default because I know who he is. It MIGHT change later when I learn more about Altair. Although I am worried about the Garrett/Altair thing.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
