I love AC2, it looks great, the cities are huge but i feel like something is missing in the city to make it really come alive. Is a small detail, but it can make the cities be more alive. CHICKENS, COWS, DOGS, CATS, GOATS. The game takes place in the 1400's. There are no dogs, chickens running around the streets. When i go outside the cities i see a a guy in the fields but no cows eating grass. The only 4 animals i saw in the whole game was the horses you get to ride, the piegons in the rooftops, the eagle flying near the viewpoints and some rats that show up while doing an assassins tomb mission. There are thousands of humans but barely only 4 types of animals. I think you guys can make a patch and make this happen, it will certantly give more LIFE to the world.

you can have cats on rooftops chasing pigeons, have the eagle fly down and catch a rat every so often. Have dogs chase vagabonds, cats. Chickens can be used as obstacles when running. Cows in the field farting, i dont know you guys can figure it out.

"Zelda,The Ocarina Of Time" for the n64 had freaking chickens, and that was more than 10 years ago.

I suppose they could, but I don't feel it's important...

When I read that, I immediately thought of Ezio tripping over chickens while trying to chase a thief.

Including Animals will mean that Ezio can Interact with them and we all know that Ezio`s Interaction may range from tearing a poster to ..... a hidden blade to the throat which will cause animal rights movements to lawsuit

Well the animal thing would give it a more real,immersive feel. Adding eye candy probably isn't real high on the Dev's "to do" list. I mean, would you rather see animals or have the no replay main mission thing & other bugs fixed? For the pc's; animals would really need to be part of the graphics settings so lower end systems could run the game smoothly.

I think animals are a touchy subject for rating boards. Even fish.

Though the US version is already M, that article says it could affect European ratings too.

These idea would give more life to the game, but it isn' t important. In a magazine of games, they are not going to puntuate that. The Ubisoft employees are not going to use one or two months to create animals, because really we are not going to feel if they were working various months only for create animals. They prefered concentrate in other aspects of the game, other more visible aspects. It is only my opinion, but i' d like see animals in the third game, depencing of the epoque

Petruccio's a kid, but he was killed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
Animals would just be a pain in the game. You would have to avoid them while chasing people across the streets and rooftops. Animals would also make the game lag a little bit more with the extra rendering and detail.

LMAO YES!

xD

I liked the random animation they did when they died, it looked so dramatic.

PS
There are totally dogs in the game, just shoot your hidden gun and see for yourself http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I want kids in the game. Not necessarily killable but at least running around.

Are you forgetting they killed a certain kid in the beginning of the game? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I like the idea but do you not think with animals, kids plus the musicians and blokes with crates the cities would almost become difficult to move around at speed?

I don't think it's an important aspect of the game really, it's more of a cosmetic thing, and like someone else said, I doubt it was high on the developers to do list
