Actually he sounded more like Ezio, or a combination of Altair and Ezio. Not a bad job, but not Altair.

This disappointingly sounded more like Ezio that Alta´r.


Moreover, as the supposed VA for Alta´r, he has a very disappointing beard.

I liked Cas Anvar's performance better than Philip Shahbaz's rubbish American-sounding one. At least Anvar tried to make him sound Arabic.

Didn't say he succeeded, just said he tried. Hell, Ezio didn't sound genuinely Italian either, but it's better than sounding like a faux-hardcore American teenager like Altair did in AC1.

I knew you were going to link to Abdu. I love Ownage. But no. If you've received proper English education in Egypt, you shouldn't sound like this. You don't sound like this, do you? Stop spreading misinformation to cover for your horrible English education, M.

Alta´r didn't have an English education at all :l The Animus translates Arabic to English, with Rebecca's animus magically adding accents. "That's the beauty and horror of the animus".

Also, who the hell other than 3am hassanein would understand this mauling accent?

I loved both of them. Thought they both accurately portrayed the attitude of Altair. Both were articulate enough that you didn't need to fear misunderstanding their words.

I sorta disliked Anvar's voice after he saved Al Mualim, some of the performance felt like the lines were coming off the script instead of through himself. But that changed when playing the Older Altairs, his voice sounding like music.

ACHILLES4713
07-22-2013, 03:43 PM
Yeah, Philip Shahbaz was definitely the better of the two. Though I thought Cas Anvar did pretty good as the old Altair. That's what sucks about changes in actors. You get used to one person, and then everything gets all thrown outa wack when somebody new comes in. Like Eric Johnson. I will never get used to him as Sam Fisher. He's totally in the wrong age range for the character.

The acr voice actor was better imo, but they should have kept the same voice actor, 2 voices for 1 character sucks.Do we know why they changed?

IMO even when that is a complaint they should keep the same VA, a character should only have 1 voice.

Sorry, but that's not Altair, unless Altair suddenly became Mexican then it's an insult to him.
I don't get how this main claims to be "the voice of Altair" when he only voiced him for a few short sequences, as opposed to Phillip Shahbaz who voiced him for a whole game.

SixKeys
07-22-2013, 04:38 PM

It doesn't even make sense, because Philip Shahbaz is perfectly capable of doing an Arabic accent. The only reason Alta´r sounded American in AC1 is because the director told him to.

Cas Anvar was probably cheaper, so they went with him for ACR. Alta´r only had a small role in it, after all.

There are a few parts in ACR where Anvar sounds identical to Shahbaz, namely the first mission when he says lines like "Abbas, no mistakes!" or when he's talking with Al Mualim. I don't have a problem admitting he has skills. But no matter how close he may get to the original voice, it just isn't the same. :/

I'm not claiming to be as good at judging Alta´r's accent as M, but if Anvar sounds neither Arabic nor American, how is that an improvement in performance? You're basically saying you'll take the accent even if he sounds like a Mexican because it sounds more exotic to you.
