Is it just me or does Connor seem like the most skilled assassin yet, I mean his fighting style is brutal, vicious and effective. He can assassinate while running, he is an extremely efficient climber. He is incredibly accurate with a bow, and he ambidextrous..do I even need to go on?

Not just that, but he is also younger then Ezio and Altair was when they were on the top of their game.

Discuss!

I'm sure it probably has a little more to do with game play mechanics improving over time (i.e. Star Wars eps 1-3 make it seem like technology was MUCH more advanced and everyone was a helluva lot stronger than in 4-6). Nevertheless, Connor is already looking like a promising third ancestor and I cannot freakin wait any longer :(.

He`s only lucky because he`s using the Anvil Next Engine...

Lets just say this in theory Ezio could probably do anything Connor could.

Connor may be all those things but have you heard him say his own name ? It sounds different to all the other pronunciations ive heard.

someone with the talents to make videos should do one with Connor kicking some a** to this song and make it a tribute to the AnvilNext engine

It's probably like Altair's name, multiple prononciations.

Hello :)

This is a thread about Connor. Do you see the word "Desmond" in the title ? or anywhere in this thread ? No ? then why ? Why are you asking an irrelevant question on this thread ?

This thread is not for such discussion. Desmond's appearance has been talked about in the past. Please use the search function. Also be aware that pictures people post may be removed without warning for various reasons.

^^^strange?? I think his face is a vast improvement over AC2, ACB and ACR. The facial animations are looking more and more like a CGI production. Same goes with Connor's facial expressions and animations over ezio's.

Yes Connor is more skilled then the previous assassins, he benefits from being a "person from the land"

I'm sure he will be the strongest. Even the devs said he's bigger, stronger than previous assassins.

Rubbish. Altair is the ultimate assassin, all the knowledge, advancements, skills and techniques in the assassin order stem from him.

The same can be said about physics and Aristotle. Yet I can hardly call him a better physicist than Albert Einstein or Isaac Newton.

Being the originator =/= being the master, in fact since he had to create and perfect these skills and techniques himself he is at a disadvantage, as the younger assassins already have the knowledge at their disposal and can thus learn them faster.

I think that putting gameplay mechanics and such aside, Connor is definately the strongest and most aggressive assassin so far. He has more strength and power than the others, and probably can sprint faster too, but he would lack endurance compared to the more slender Ezio and Altair.

In other words he is better at small groups of combat, short bursts (chasing down nearby targets) and he has his "street smarts" in the forest.

Ezio and Altair would be better at climbing tall buildings, running long distances, prolonged combat.

Out of the two, I would say Altair would be the most endurable, and Ezio would be somewhere in between Connor and Altair

I reckon that in a city he is the weakest, but in the forest he is the best

Hardly, not everything filtered down. Even Ezio, a master of the assassin order, was still scrambling for Altairs left over knowledge, techniques and weapons even at the end of his life.

Knowledge, not techniques. He was looking for philosophical guidance and understanding, as was his duty as the Mentor.

I think Connor is great in the guerrilla fighting aspect, but Ezio is great at remaining incomunicotto. :>

YES! I just migrated over here from the multiplayer thread and dang, talk about negative energy. If people can try to remain positive and not criticize every little aspect of the game, then forums would be more fun to share opinions with others.
