Weird thread, but for some reason it popped into my head. So...whose voice do you think is best?

I think it's a toss up between these characters:
Achilles
Rodrigo Borgia
Haytham
Godzio
Al Mualim
Anto (Maroon slave revolt leader - Templar Hunts)
Adewale

A lot of characters I know, and I've probably missed a few - let me know. And, answer OP. :p

Al Mualim or Altair.

Altair's voice is so cold and badass, it would have been perfect if they allowed Shahbaz to voice with a middle eastern accent like originally planned.

ACR's Altair was awful on the other hand, they made him sound like a soft spoken Mexican and it just detracted from any likability he had in that game, I hated every time he said something. I understand the time constraints the game was under, but it wouldn't have killed them to get the original VA to do the job.

I figured they changed the voice actor because people thought an American accent was a bit out of place for an Arabic guy... I preferred the new Altair, but wasnt a huge fan of either actors performances. I believe M can vouch for new Altair - apparently he is accurately Arabic.

EDIT: ^ Wait never mind I must be thinking of something else - still didn't sound Mexican though. :p

AC1 Altair's voice then didn't suit him a Syrian man with an American accent in the 12th Century never made sense. Sure Ubisoft uses the excuse it was because of the Animus.. highly unrealistic. Altair's Revelations voice give's his character justice and suited him better.

Altair in Revelations didn't sound Mexican he sounded Middle Eastern as he should.

That's right, I actually disliked Cas' performance...it was SO bad, especially in scenes with actors who pronounce Arabic better than he did...like that guy in that sitdown around the fire who said "He is our Mentor and unlike Al-mualim or Altair, he never betrayed us" THAT was a good accent and THOSE were good pronunciations...

Heck, Altair is pronounced wrong...the "L" should'v been silent..

But the thing is, Shahbaz was capable of doing a middle eastern accent, he even demonstrated how Altair was supposed to sound at some convention. They decided to scrap the accent at the last minute because they didn't want to cause offence. (Which is pretty odd reasoning considering every other character had an accent).

I'll definitely agree that the accent was out of place, but the voice itself was very fitting for his character, cold, firm, and showing little emotion. Those are the areas in which I felt ACR's VA failed, as well as the accept...which means he was terrible all round. :nonchalance:

My favorite voice actor has got to be Warren Vidic's voice. He was just so expressive and deliciously villainous. An animator's dream.

After that it's Al Mualim, Charles Vane, Haytham, Ezio, Rodrigo Borgia, the original Animus lady and the guy who voiced Cesare, Putnam and Francesco di Pazzi.

Some homestead missions were pretty terrible, but that is 100% the directors fault. There are moments like this in every AC game. In any scene where Noah is acting with another actor in the room with full performance capture, he does a fantastic job.

Because Shahbaz gives a terrible performance with every single line. Noah only screws up when it's very clear he's recording his lines without other actors present.

Sure, every actor has bad moments (though in the Ezio example I think it was more a case of struggling with the accent). I just hate this hypocrisy that every time Connor's acting indisputably sounds flat, it can't possibly be the actor's fault. Whereas we know for a fact that Shahbaz was forced to give a very specific performance according to the director's wishes, but the actor gets all the blame.

Just like you give all the blame on Noah, when in fact you can't place all the blame on him. Some moments the writers for the scripts and director is at fault.

BATISTABUS

Fair enough.

Who knows, maybe Shahbaz is the same type of actor as Noah and shines during performances with other actors. If they hired him anyway and didn't put him in the optimal recording scenario, it's 100% Ubi's fault in that scenario as well. I'm just comparing what I can hear in the games.

Shahbaz was asked to speak in his normal speaking voice. If anything, it is more difficult to act while putting on an accent you do not feel comfortable with. Had he used the accent he said he auditioned with, his performance might have been even worse.

Perhaps, but judging by his lines in previous scenes (actually, RIGHT before this scene) I'd say he was pretty fine with the accent and yes, I AM aware that it's not recorded in canonical sequence.
I'm not saying it's Ezio's fault by the way, the thing is that when a VA delivers an awesome line then there's the odd bit of dialogue, it can't entirely be the actor's fault...

but yes, okay..I agree that blaming Shahbaz and not Watts is a bit over the top, but i could see where he's coming from since he sees that Shahbaz delivered absolutely no good lines:p

That would give Noah the upper hand as he was fortunate enough to be able to act in mo-cap, whereas that technology wasn't present in AC1 (correct me if I'm wrong) and Shahbaz was restricted to acting purely by voice. You may also be right about Shahbaz being able to perform better in an actual acting scenario with other people, which is why I think he would have done a far better job than Cas in ACR.

Regardless, I still think his performance in AC1 was very good.

It depends. Roger Craig Smith is a voice actor by trade, so he might not have been as successful with motion capture.

Ezio, Connor, Shaun, Desmond, Haytham, Edward, La Volpe, Machiavelli, Yusuf, Mario, Stede Bonnet(Hello Edward!)- Blackbeard. Maybe a bit of Robert de Sable. I think its enough.

Batistabutus, which performances did you like in Assassin's Creed 1?
I especially liked Al Mualim. Malik and the Templars were great, and Des, Lucy, and Vidic were fantastic as well. I pretty much enjoyed every performance that mattered in that game EXCEPT for Altair.

Oh yeah, I love the AC3 guards: "Down or you bleed!" "Prepare to bleed." "In my sights, clear as day" "You fight like my old granny." Aww.. rotten like an old horse." The list goes on and on... lol

The crew is funny from AC3/AC4. My FAVORITE line is: "Sink, you bastards! Sink!"

The AC3 guards do also simply say "Die".. had a guard say that to Connor, then that guard died. :D

In AC2 and ACB- Ezio taunts guards and says stuff in Italian. Wouldn't it be funny if Connor also taunted the guards when he got into a conflict?
He would probably be saying things in his Native language. :p

Nice, although we don't originally have swear words.

Saying that I would like to hear Connor curse in English. :D

Agreed! Connor was humble. Just for a contrast it would be interesting ffor Connor to get really pissed, and just rage like he had those moments of anger towards different characters :D

My apologies, I did not mean to sound disrespectful. I didn't necessarily mean swear words or curse words, I really meant taunting. I thought it would be cool if Connor said things like "Is that all you got!?" , "Not good enough" or "Nice try" . Things like that.

Altair in the first game. They butchered his voice in Revelations. Haytham also had a very cool voice but I like Scottish accents much more than southern English. James Kidd/Mary Read had an awesome accent.

I suppose so... if he was taunting the guards, it would've made look really cocky and arrogant. Then people would have more reason to hate him.

Actually in TOKW, there to lines he said that come to mind

"G***** you Putnam!"

And everyone's favourite :p

"Tell the truth, Dammit!"

They are not taunts, just words he says out of anger.

For me basically any voice except for Altiar from AC1 that was god awful he didn't even have a middle east accent. The first time I played I was kind of confused and thought maybe he was a European crusader who fell in with the Assassins, but nope he's from there. And also he talks strangely, like he over annunciates his words, or perhaps spaces them out too much or something I cant quite put my finger on it but he doesn't sound like a native English speaker he sounds more like google translate or one of those slow talking translators you see on the news when a foreign leader is talking. The same kind of problem bothers me about George Washington in AC3 he has similar translator sounding cadence to his voice that sounds like he is giving a speech every time he talks, and he has really no accent, the guy was from Virginia, I understand he was sophisticated but they could have at least given him some tinge of a southern gentleman's accent, nothing distracting or inaccurate, but make him sound human, and from his home area. Those two voices bothered me the most out of the entire series just because the quality of the voices was so bad it reminded me of a Japanese Game dubbed into English like Metal Gear Solid lol.

Oh and also Israel Putnam has a gruff Southern Accent for some reason even though he should have a New England Accent since he was from Massachusetts or Connecticut. I felt they really botched regional accents in AC3 and the characters just don't sound accurate to their native areas, the only ones that sound right in AC3 are the natives.

As for Washington, Viginia's not THAT far south. I know Virginians that talk with a "Northern" accent.

As for Washington, Viginia's not THAT far south. I know Virginians that talk with a "Northern" accent.

I am from PA and I know even in the southern part of my state people there start talking with faint southern accents. Not all Virginians have accents, but you also have to remember that because of Washington DC and the rapid expansion of the size of government, bureaucracy, and the military in the past 100 years the area around Washington DC/Baltimore/Richmond has been rapidly filled with people moving there to work for nearly 100 years+ so many people in that particular area do not have accents, because many of them are only 2nd generation+ living there therefore they don't have a southern accent, but in some rural parts of southern PA, definitely in Maryland and Virginia all have southern accents(for the most part there's always exceptions) only interrupted by the area of Baltimore DC and Richmond where there is practically no accent. And I know several people in Virginia both that talk with and without an accent these days it depends how rural you are(and Washington's time was far more rural). The accent there also is nowhere near as strong as the deep south by the way Southern Accents come in an extremely wide variety and different levels of strength.

But anyway I did say the wrong thing about Putnam its not really a Southern accent but he doesn't sound like a New Englander to me he sounds like a Cowboy like they modeled his style on John Wayne or something its strange to me. I guess he doesn't really have an accent but his voice is so gruff it sounds odd, but either way his voice just seems slightly cartoony and over the top IMO(for the record I actually like Putnam's character he's funny and a tough SOB).

There's also the fact that what sounds like a "southern" or "New England" accent today might not have 250 years ago.

Edward
Altaïr (ACR)
Charles Vane
Ed Thatch
.. and many others from previous games, especially those with that funny "italian" accent :)

I can not judge Altaïr's voice from first game because I have localized version with dubbed voices. Our voice-over artists did not use any kind of accent, but tone of Altaïr's voice in this version fits his personality very well - it is cold and arrogant. I would say ACR is focused on his other qualities and I enjoyed this completely new Altaïr with non-arrogant voice. JMO :)
