View Full Version : Really Ubitsoft? is that the best you can do with Desmond's face?

I have been playing Assassin's Creed since the first one came out. It is just a huge disappointment that Ubisoft cannot even keep Desmond's face the same or even similar. I feel like playing a totally different game whenever his face shows up in Assassin's Creed III.

Really true indeed.

Also OP, this is what happens when you have a company that upgrades to a mocap recording to get the best and accurate face and expression possible. Desmond of AC3 looks like a carbon copy of his actor than ever before. He is meant to look like that, now that the technology has been put into good use.

Desmond looks the best in AC3 IMO, both looking separately and comparing with his actor. .. and he looked the worst in ACR. Quite a transition. :p

Personally I'm glad we didn't play AC3 with ACR's face. That would've been bad, really bad (shudders)

I always liked Desmond's Brotherhood face, it was the neatest and least glitch of the lot. All the faces in Brotherhood were the neatest / smoothest.

Revelations had some good moments (Desmond was terrible, but Ezio was great when he put his hood down.. he looked amazing there)

But, AC3 Desmond is one of the better faces. Very accurate, and it helped give Desmond his own unique look, instead of being a carbon copy of Ezio and Altair.

If you remove Ezio's beard in ACR, he looks exactly like Desmond. In Brotherhood, Desmond actually had a goatee like Ezio and he looked exactly like him, but they cut that for no official reason (I'd imagine due to him looking exactly like Ezio)

At least now, Desmond is his own person. Doesn't look like Connor, Ezio or Altair.

I headcanon it as being the effect of the dark room. :p

So many threads complaining about Desmond's face, but nobody's mentioning Rebecca? I thought her transition from ACB to AC3 was much more awkward. She looks like a different person. Shaun too, to an extent, but not as much.

Don't you ever complain about Desmond's AC3 face. It was the best one after his AC1 face (Revelations never happened *shudders*). He finally looked like Francisco Randez, his character model. And I also loved that he looked really skinny in AC3. After months spent in the Animus, plus his coma I would expect nothing less. It really added to the realism.

Yeah Rebecca looks like a different person now, and much younger. But I ain't complaining because I like the change. :)

Am I the only one who loves to listen to her voice? She is soooo............. soothing when Desmond chats with her.

Nah.. I like her voice too. The way she said Dessssmond when he was inside the Animus for the first time in AC3 was so cute. :D

I'm suprised no one mention the change of Rebecca's... assets between AC2 and ACB.

They changed Desmond's face drastically but never pulled the brutal wedgie out of Shaun's bumcrack :'(

Apart from the added detail, I really don't see a difference between Shaun's face in AC2 and AC3

I understand desmond's face, but, why did they change rebecca and shaun's face?
I know some like it, but i am somehow on the negative side(sorry about that), it seems too far from the first face.
