Noticed this in Revelations a LOT. You know that guy who is banging away at the door to altairs library? His face shows up EVERYWHERE in the game. Whether it is citizen or guard. It is annoying too see. I recognise this in AC2 as well, however much less. Granted I am not saying that they should never re use character models, it just takes away from the experience when they are OVER used. I hope this isn't the case with AC3.

Yep, I agree. I saw quite a few repeats in Brotherhood (notably with the Assassin recruits) but it was REALLY noticeable in Revelations. That same pudgy, lightly-bearded face was on pretty much every male NPC. However, I haven't noticed any of that so far in the limited amount of gameplay footage we've seen for AC3, which had over triple the development time of ACR, so...

Recycling Facial models is present in EVERY Open-world game, but yes I agree that It was too apparent in Revelations.

Hell, every Female recruit had the same face preset and every male recruit the same..

It never bothered me except in AC2 when every third civilian looked exactly like Vieri de Pazzi. I don't mind reusing NPC models for civilians, but they should at least have kept Vieri's face unique since he's a major character.

It didn't really bother me that much. I got used to it. It happens in all games.

I know it happens, I don't expect it not too that's just CRAY!

It never bothered me until Revelations' "That same pudgy, lightly-bearded face was on pretty much every male NPC."

Can't say it's ever bothered me. Yes I've noticed it, but that's gaming for you, and I don't pay it that much attention.
