Hi everybody... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I want to mention about Altair. His name sounds very nice. He is cool, his clothing is perfect. His weapons (as i see in his cloth) are great. His abilities (as i see in trailer) is cool. All these traits maybe make him coolest character ever. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

But, HIS FACE!! He looks like a noob, clumsy and unfledged with that face. An Assassin should be more fearsome I think.(You can see his face from official site's wallpaper part, if you didn't see.) C'mon fellas; remember Prince. (not in SoT, he acts very youngly there and look unskilled but in the WW and TT he was wonderful http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif), Prince was AWESOME. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

What do you think about Altair? Maybe I can be wrong, maybe you like his face, don't hesitate to express your ideas guys... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I think it does have a satanic flair to it...but not too evil...

i doubt it.the "assassins" started from a group of Muslim warriors who became widely known and feared due to their policy of murdering opposing political leaders who went counter to their interests. so satanic is probably out of the picture

Well it depends on your point of veiw if he's evil or not, I think he's the good guy in the game. I think his face looks fine.

I agree. He does look a little young and a little innocent. I would prefer something towards the face of the Prince in Warrior Within. He looked dangerous, this guy, meh not so much.

looks like a noob? he's not playing a videogame, and he's not in the actual time/ era that we play the game in either. it's what they're calling 'genetic memory' so yeah...

When the story starts you just recently becoming a Assassin and joining the Guild. So that is why the character looks younger then say, Garret from the Thief games. I think his appearance is fine. Who knows maybe they will show the character age throughout the game through the nine different crusades

I think his face is perfect. He looks like he knows wat he's doing. He could use like a scar or something that would show his expierence as an Assassin, that would be cool

Thing is, he doesn't have any experience, like Newtype pointed out.

I dunno......
For me, Prince was perfect in WW. But, Prince not seem so perfect in some posters and covers of WW when his head covered with hood. What I'm trying to point out here is, maybe without a hood on his head, Altair will look so much better than Prince... It is better to wait for new OFFICIAL pictures of Altair before talk about his face. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Because he wants to end the war? He went to training first in that guild, you know.

But he may have had some experience before he entered the guild. The guild may have just enhanced his abilities.

Heh It was Actually 'Shia' Muslims who attacked the political leaders of the 'Sunni' Muslims, because most Sunni Muslims didn't consider Shia's as Muslim. They were lead by a man who promised them women and basically a heaven,they took 'hash' before going to kill so they lose their senses and would act restlessly. It wasn't their interest but the interests of their leader is the reason they did it. thats why they were called "Hashashins" meaning those who are to the 'Hash' and which was later turned to "Assassin" from "Hassassin". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well, their use of hashish before a kill is on very loose evidence. I'm sure a lot of you have heard it before, but hashish calms the body down, not to mention the records (and name) of the Assassins come from outsiders.

As to Altair's appearance being too "soft"... What man ever complained about Lara Croft's boobs being impractical? Let us women have some eye-candy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You guys have to realize no one is born an assasin... he's just a regular guy from that time period, o he's lucky he's not disfigured

For me, i think he's fine the way he is. The hood is a way of protecting his identy, so we'll probably never get to see his face beyond what we've seen so far, and that's fine by me.

I love his face.

The illusion of innocence is perfect for this kind of assassin. If he looked like an assassin, he would raise the suspicion of the guards. Unlike the prince, he isn't fighting crazy demons, he is fighting smart people, and if he looks like he is a warrior, they will try to figure out whose side he is on, if the guards find out he is not on their side, he's done for.

And in regards to the lack of scars: I love it, it means he is good at what he does.

Oh, and newtype, it is set in the third crusade, no one could live through all the different crusades, they spanned centuries.

who cares, you never see his face properly anyway, it matters how he fights and acts not how he looks.

Please look at the post dates before making a comment.

Now, where's a mod? We need a 12 gauge double-barrelled lockgun to put this thread to rest.

this thread does offer one good insight. look at everyone making guesses about the next games, and just about all of them are wrong. Why anyone expects to know what well see in AC3 or whatever the next game is is beyond me.
