Hey guys,

So one obvious thing that most of us noticed is that Haytham has different sword animations than Connor.
When playing as Connor, I would have rather liked to see Connor have his sword moves in addition to Haytham's sword moves so we would have tons of sword animations.
But then I do see how Haytham's fancy fencing-like style wouldn't really fit Connor.
But still... I don't know why, but I just really like Haytham's kills better. I love how beautiful yet streamlined it looked, comparatively, to say... Connor's style of extremely visceral sword fighting.

Not that I disliked his. Haytham just had a certain flair. Am I though only one that thinks this?

Haytham is a Noble. Nobles are trained in Fencing. and I really appreciated the difference in Sword Techniques. I liked Haytham`s more;I can relate to it better, Because I`m an Epee fencer..His stance was just Awesome. So arrogantly flair..Altair`s stance was a fencing one too, but I prefer Haytham`s

Nice to see that i`m not the only one who noticed this..

Yeah, I prefer Haytham's too. I would really like to see a way you can have those animations back without having to replay memories as Haytham.

To be honest, As much as I like the Moves, I really hope they stay with Haytham..It`s really fitting.

Connor`s style would look weird with Haytham`s Animations. One moment he`d be jumping on the the guy with his word, another moment he`d be standing there so arrogantly slashing the soldier criss cross 4 times..

It`s not that I do not want them, It`s just that these look like they were MADE for Haytham..It also helps with Individualization.

I liked them as well, if only they made the game with Haytham as the main character & clearly he's related to Desmond in some way or another. It would of been one hell of an ending as well.

Haytham is far more likable than Connor also. His arrogance is hilarious.

i perfer haythams...

truthfully i HATED connors swiviel hidden blade. i thought it messed up every weapon. and why is hidden blade primary weapon so slow? the tomahawk is suppose to be fast... but there is no why the hidden blade shouldn't be faster.

swivel hidden blade sucks. don't put it in future games, unless its opptional

I loved Haythem's sword animations. They fit him so perfectly. With Conner though, I don't even use the sword. I use the Assassin Tomahawk as my primary. In my opinion, swords look out of place on Conner's belt.

It doesn't help that they clip through basically ALL of his outfits horribly.

It's possible. William can hop into the Animus to let us play as Haytham again.

I hate that there is not many counter attacks. There is only few finishing move. I hope we get more finishing moves :)

Didn't know this thread existed already. I noticed it just recently that Haytham has different animations than Conor cuz I breezed earlier through the hidden blade.
