Hello, so I'm been sitting here for awhile thinking: Which Asssassin kills the Best? So I'd figured I'd make this Thread to see Everyone's Opinions. ;)

Altair:

Ezio ( AC2- ACR):

AC2:

ACB:

ACR:

Connor:

Edward:

Haytham: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttOXniNu3zY&feature=youtube_gdata_player

I'd personally say Altair is the Best...followed by Haytham in how efficient he is in his kills.

What do you guys think? Who kills the Best?

Feel Free to Discuss!!!

I was going to pick Connor or Altair.

But then I saw Haytham as a poll option.

Connor was born brutal so he's definitely on my list :p

EDIT: OMG What's that move Connor does at 1:08? Never see that before!

And I prefer these killing compilation videos :D

Haytham for the classiness.

Altair just because he's badass too.

Edward is just recycled piratey Connor moves, so no lol..

I hated Ezio's kill animations in ACR, liked them best in ACB. Connor trumps even those, he has a lot of really sick moves. (That I don't think entirely fit his character, but anyway.)

Yes, Connor is an absolute beast in how he kills...

So he's tied for second with Haytham... ;)

YES! that move is so flipping brutal! Most brutal kill in the whole series I think.

I like Ezio's kills in R, but loot counter and hook-counter only has 1 animation and gets repetitive. Haytham doesn't have that much unique animations, but they're good enough to get my vote.

[EDIT] Don't forget Adewale! He actually has A TON of unique and badass kill animations. More than Shay, sadly. =D

I dont believe they gave adewale new fighting animations in a dlc and have kept the same animations in rogue which is a whole new game. Really annoys me and shows so much laziness that shay shares Edwards animations (who also shares connor's)

Haytham, Aveline, Connor, Edward, Adewale, and now Shay have all shared animations.

I picked Connor. AC3s animations, whether that be in fight, climbing etc were bloody amazing at times! Here's a video I've posted previously here but deserves more love:

That's really sad when you put it like that. People complained that Alta´r and Ezio shared the same animations, try 6 assassins in a row.

To be fair, Aveline, Connor, Haytham, Edward, and Shay has different animations in areas other than combat.

Altair and Ezio has 4 games with the same animations, combat or not.

Altair (quick and to the point), Connor (feral and swift), Haytham (graceful and confident) and Ezio ACB (stylish and rapid)

Edward's kills were as flashy and slow as Ezio's in ACR and Ezio's kills in AC II were copy and paste from AC I--the ones that belong to Ezio looked too flamboyant and flashy.

08-30-2014, 02:43 AM
I think ACB Ezio is my favorite in terms of combat moves, but I voted for Haytham too because even though he only got a few unique animations they were cool enough to be memorable. Connor is a close second, since he had a ton of awesome moves but some pretty dumb-looking ones too IMO. Like the one where he chops their neck and jumps up to knee them in the chin. But Ezio's low-profile double assassination is probably my favorite move in the entire franchise.

Edit- I really like Edward's hidden blade animations, but the sword ones sucked so he doesn't get a vote.

Sure, but they're still supposed to be different characters with distinct fighting styles. One of my (many) complaints with ACR was that they gave both characters the exact same fighting and climbing animations, making them little more than the same assassin in different robes. Connor having all-new animations was a breath of fresh air, but then they recycled his set for five other characters, including one female. That's just pure laziness.

I would have to say Connor, for the brutality and the awesome double counter kills (plus that face he pulls at the end of each final kill haha). The best animations though go to the "Vlad the Impaler" sword from Revelations, that sword was the most badass thing ever! When I first picked it up I was in such awe that I just spent about half an hour trying out every move.

Either AC1 Altair or AC2 Ezio (spears, axes, hidden blades). Those are classic, the ones that are memorable to me. In a way, they're fairly concise, efficient, easy to observe without getting lost or feeling too incredulous.

I would love to choose Haytham and/or Arno but there just ain't enough (yet)!

Well, that was represented for the majority of it. Haytham's fencing style was all unique when he's equipped with a sword. Edward's dual swords/single-sword were all unique and brash. Adewale's machete and blunderbuss both had new and deadly animations. Aveline's tools were unique pre-AC:IV, but I suppose it was inexcusable. Especially how she uses the whip as a rope-dart. <--Like WDF

With the exception of Shay, the developers were hitting the fine line before, but it's getting more noticeable now. It's a real Shay(me) :rolleyes: that Rogue didn't introduce anything new in terms of combat style. Like someone said before, even Adewale came equipped with a whole new set... And the DLC only took them 2 months to make.

This is forums.connor.com, if Connor is an option in a poll, he will win with Haytham after him.

I just love the animations for ezio... I would have chosen Connor.... but the combat system was just way to easy for me to feel any impact.... There was more of an elegance to ezio... However according to the story ezio had to be the best. Ezio Was chosen to train Desmond since skill wise he was the best assassin ever. However game systems change that.

king-hailz
08-30-2014, 07:53 AM
I bet none of you knew that some animations from AC3 were reused from the ezio trilogy... you remember when Connor stabs guards with his tomahawk twice in the chest. Ezio done it in the EXACT same way with his dagger.... and there are some other ones as well...

Namikaze_17
08-30-2014, 08:04 AM
It was most likely a homage of some sort...

And so what? 90-95% of the other animations are new...

08-30-2014, 08:11 AM
I mean seriously... Connor is a one man wrecking machine, not to mention the great animations that went with them. So my vote surprise surprise go to the Son and Papa Duo!

and Haytham.. come on. It's Haytham. He was classy as F&@* lol. It just worked.

Definitely Connor. His movements are quick, realistic and brutal and he has the best kill animations ever, even though it was slightly copied and used for Aveline and Edward. Connor makes the tomahawk a really deadly art form.

Second favourite has to be Haytham, he has the right blend of flamboyance and simplicity in his moves without looking too flashy.

Lastly, I like Altair's weapon style. He is quick, clinical and simple.

OMG Had no idea you would use a SNARE as a deadly weapon! Thanks for telling me :)

As SixKeys has said already, if theres one thing that most Connor haters could like about Connor, it's his animations.

Ezio and Connor.
Two different styles, one is like a lightning bolt and the other is brutal. Edward is amazing as well with all the guns and dual swords and stuff.

By that logic every game until AC3 is just as much a cash cow and cheap rip off. Then the cycle begin again with AC3 until Unity where the next cycle begin. And all developers reuse animations, just Look at Uncharted.

He had 1 new kill move in the Atlantic DEMO. I'm expecting the air rifle's tool-counters and double-tool-kills to be a re:hash of Adewale's blunderbuss.

Altair isn't really brutal. Every kill seems to be targeted for a quick death. He doesn't stab them multiple times unless they might not die from the initial stab wound.

His sword kills were very brutal, you can hear the crunch of bone.

I dont think it was necessarily Altair who was brutal. I just think it was the combat system used and the brutality in the graphics. For example, his moves were very similar to those of Ezios but you really felt the impact of the light and heavy attacks with bursts of blood coming after each hit. I really loved that. The whole setting and gameplay was so brutal.
