I may be silly I know, but Desmond's sudden face change pretty much ruins the experience for me. Isn't it it possible to change his looks back like in AC:B with some downloadable skin pack of sorts?

Eh, I didn't like it at first but I got used to it pretty quickly. They could still tweak it a bit to look closer to the old model, but it's not a huge deal for me.

They have evolved away from the face of Francisco Randez! It's good to me. He looks exactly like Ezio and Altair. But they all had different facial hair, so they looked different!

I actually think the face change helps Desmond look more serious and mature.
Depending on the story for AC3, it might be a good thing.

I'm not bothered either way - they changed Ezio pretty much too, but I grew to be fine with that.
(I wanted him to look like he did in the Trailer)

I actually think he looks less serious...Mainly because his eyebrows are usually elevated inappropriately. Like he's easily surprised or dumbfounded. I feel that his eyes were more serious on the old model.

With that said, I do prefer him minus a beard and maybe something closer to the old model, but I'm kind of ok with the new one too.

He looks more like Adam Sandler with every game. If that's the price for using the Animus, they can keep it.

And in AC3 he'll probably look like Ben Stiller.

I didn't like his face at all while he was on animus island but at the end when he is out of the animus, his face looks fine. Looks like the older model but with updated graphics which is fine with me. As long as they keep the face from the end of the game in AC3, I'm fine with it. However big no no to animus island face. He lost all his distinguishable features and he ended up just looking like a cross between Adam Sandler and whats-his-face from GTA. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Here's a quick comparison through the four games. The changes through from the original to brotherhood are tiny; simply graphical updates and such. But look how drastic the changes are in revelations.

Desmond is ugly as heck in ACR! His face is totally different.

In each game, he bares resemblance to the main character. You can definitly see Altair in him in AC, and young Ezio in him in AC2, and an older Ezio in ACB.

But in ACR... all i see is... ugly! Goodness only knows what happened to his nose.

He doesn't bear any resemblance to Ezio and Alta´r anymore because the animus was updated. The previous versions of the animus showed the ancestors as Desmond, while in reality they looked different from him.

For ACR they also rescanned Desmond's face model and they updated the graphics. For the previous three games they'd simply reused the model from AC1, which had become horribly outdated (quality wise). That's why he seems to look so different.

Actually, if you pay attention you can see a resemblance between Ezio in the game and Ezio in the trailer. The difference is Ezio in the game looks older than the Ezio in the trailer.

Not too fond of how Desmond appeared in ACR as well, but loved him in Brotherhood. Was sorting through my screenshots folder earlier, and here are a few more from ACR:

http://i39.tinypic.com/35d8gso.jpg http://i43.tinypic.com/nd55hu.jpg http://i44.tinypic.com/9ihagm.jpg http://i41.tinypic.com/r06zjl.jpg

Some way to re-skin Desmond back to the ACB model would be great, OP, but I doubt it would ever be possible. The new look isn't too bad, IMHO, but I also sorely miss how he seemed in ACB.

I agree, he looks better outside of Animus Island. But I still prefer the ACB model for him, just my preference. A few more shots of him outside of the Island for comparison:

I don't have that many screenshots of him in ACR, but this particular one made him look a great deal like Randez (sadly, it's the only one out of the whole lot):

See this is where I have no problem with his face. He looks fine. He looks just like the model actor and like old Desmond with updated graphics but all the shots on animus island made him look way too different. As ProdiGurl said before, it looked like they were trying to make him look more middle eastern. His eyes are either too big or too small, they made his lips way too big and his jaw-line is too wide.

Something that's weird though is that I don't really like his looks in this shot here:

But in the 2 shots above from the same scene, he looks fine. I think it definitely partly has to do with the lighting. And also the change in animation from the gameplay cutscenes to the ending cutscene.

As long as they can keep his face from the high quality animation from the end of the game and make it look the same in the gameplay animation, that would be perfect.

I hated Desmond's face in this game. I hated that every main character's face changed from their past appearance -- Alta´r's change was the best and least noticeable, but Desmond, Ezio, Shaun and Rebecca all look too different for me. I know Lucy changed a lot from AC1 to AC2, but that didn't affect me nearly as much. Perhaps because I had less attachment and investment in her character model at the time.

I'm glad the lighting issue on Desmond's face was pointed out. I agree that the lighting on Animus Island definitely made him look much worse and he looks better in the Nexus. But I still remember watching the end of the game and seeing the dumbfounded look on Desmond's face while he's in the Nexus and thinking to myself, "This still doesn't look like Desmond to me." His chin is too wide and not nearly as narrow as it used to be or like his real-life face model. And Desmond just never looked so stupid in the face before -- he seems to have had somewhat of an eyebrow tilt or something in the past that let you know that even when he didn't know what was going on, he still had that glimmer of lighthearted cynicism in him. Even the look on his face at the end of Brotherhood while the Apple is controlling him doesn't make him look like the idiot that he looks like in the Nexus.

The best Desmond looked in this game was during the opening cinematic where Rebecca is saying "We can keep him like this for a few days, maybe a week." His face during that scene at least still looked like Desmond.

I didnt like the upgraded face at first, but then when I played the game, I dont know, Desmond suddenly felt more alive, honestly in ACB and AC II Desmond was simply a game mechanic to me, but his upgraded face, was one of the main reasons I got more attached to Desmond in ACR..

SolidSage
12-19-2011, 11:15 AM
In game face is better than before. Cut scene face seems the same.
I just wish Ezio's in game face was the same as the first cut scene, cuz that was very good. In game is good, just not AS good.

The only one they need to sort out was Ezio. He looked so Italian in the 2nd one, and really well. Even the mo-cap on his face was good.

I love playing Brotherhood up until the end of the Villa attack, all those cinematic bits are the best. Afterwards it get's old.

Revelations did ruin the faces, but it's cool. It doesn't affect the story / gameplay

Not really. If you take a good look at the pictures (especially the ones that don't have bad lighting), you can clearly see that his nose it the same. I think that the most significant change is concerning his cheekbones, which were basically not there in AC1 through ACB.

If it's either one of those reasons then Ubisoft are a bunch of remedials. It's bad enough they change stuff so much in the animus but now they're changing stuff that is supposed to be in the real world? Unless desmond had some new scar removing operation when he was in a coma, that will probably be their reason lol!

Calm down. It's just a minor detail. For AC1 (I think it was) they almost forgot to take away all the left ring fingers from the Assassin models. When they found out that the fans were very much aware of the left ring finger missing for assassins, they actually went back to each single model and changed it so that it had its left ring finger missing.

The scar was barely noticeable anyways. Maybe they just made it more obscure.

Stop looking for random excuses to bash Ubisoft and AC, especially if it's such a pathetic reason as this one.

EDIT: I just found his scar. It's still there, but barely visible. It's a lot slimmer than before.

They aren't random excuses, it's a continuity error.

I will say what I want and certainly won't take "orders" from someone who looks like a Dutch paedophille giving commands from behind his keyboard.

In real life you're probably a shy wimp who wouldn't dare tell anyone what to do but have a feeling of power on this forum because you have a lot of posts.

He looks overweight and his beard is unnecessary. My question is, if the Animus stuff is all in his head then how can he gain weight and grow a beard?

They need to change it back, I'd developed an attachment to Desmond and this got rid of it. It's like when they changed Cole's face in Infamous 2, the outcry was so bad that Sucker Punch changed it to one more similar. People were also annoyed with Samus's new look in Other M.

Those saying it's just a face, what if they deviated from Mario's look, or Nathan Drake's? People were annoyed with Samus's new look in Other M.

It's not a continuity error as his scar is still there.

You simply joined this forum to express your butthurt.

Perhaps being less condescending would help.

Desmond's facial structure is different. If you took the two different models into facial identification software; it wouldn't match. The bone structure is altered from one to the other.

It is a problem. Even if some of your audiences gives it a free pass, another nice chunk finds it deplorable. Not good.

Didn't need to. You can eyeball it and tell the cheeks, nose and eye sockets are different. If the naked eye can tell, then software certainly would.

Remember guys, we are talking about a dude that woke up in a lab, was subjected to hours of mental skull-er-flubbery http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif, then fought an escape, jumped in a van and endured MORE sleep deprivation and skullflubbery, more fighting, got to Europe did some physical exploribg, MORE mind drain time, THEN a quick physical escapade where he did something REAL bad, then his mind broke and he got lost in his headspace, had more mental drainage and apeture with who he met there, then black room no sleep session until completion.

HE'S TIRED. Go work 18 hour days for 6 months, see how you look afterwards. (speaking from experience).

Anyway, this is just a rationalization in an effort to satisfy some of the more 'micro issue' focused fans out there. Personally I think he looks better, and I'm sorta glad he resembles his heritage a bit more.

Can we get an Anglo subject next time? Maybe like Wooderson out of Dazed & Confused? No even better, McConahey's character out of Reign of Fire, yeahhhh, much better, ATTITUDE!
Cool, thanks.

I agree his bone structure looks different on animus island, but SPOILER <span class="ev_code_WHITE">when he wakes up in the van</span> he looks identical to how he did in the previous games, just more realistic.
It's probably just the lighting on animus island.

p.s. does anyone else think Ezio's eyes look extremely weird at times in AC:R? I found it...unsettling.

I'm hoping that wasn't cataracts lol

But seriously, I love that eye color, just that he had brown eyes in previous games.

I was going to say Desmond just looks like that because thats how he thinks of himself.

And I agree 20000% with you about eagle sense.

I just did a play through of Revelations and I realized how much I hated his face, like it got to the point to were I covered up his face cause I couldn't stand it (shallow right? haha). I mean I didn't even recognize him when I first played the game. He looks like a black chines Adam Sandler! I really hope ubisoft fixes this problem, Desmond looked his best in Brotherhood. :mad:

They already covered this in one of the interviews. The reason they changed it was to give him an updated look, if they had left the old Desmond, people would complain that his facial graphics look like crap.

yeah....but it should have been possible to improve graphical details of characters while keeping the face everyone is familiar with:)
for example just look at Kratos from God of War 2 to God of War 3,in Gow 3 hes much much more detailed but he still has his facial characteristics:)might not be the best example but im sure there are many other games which graphicaly evolved while making their main character still look familiar and recognisable:)

also i hope desmond loses his beard again,because that makes him look too old and wise:/ hes 25 and should keep looking like a fresh and young assassin:)

I agree they could make him look more like Desmond, but part of the reason they changed it was so people wouldn't complain about his face being outdated.

In regards to GoW, they made his tattoo's skinnier, and people where questioning that(although I didn't even realize this until someone had pointed it out). Part of the problem is that they just can't take the old face and upgrade it, you have to start from scratch.

There is a difference between updating a character model and changing a character model, and in this case, they changed Desmonds model they didnt update it.

I, for one, couldn't get over Desmond's new face. It was justified for Ezio and Altair - the earlier models of the Animus applied the user's face to the ancestors - but this makes no sense. The whole feel of Revelations is different to me, its almost like the dev team from Brotherhood was replaced by some new f.uckers who hadn't played the previous ACs. Anyway, if Altair or Ezio make an appearance in ACIII, I would be fine with the faces they had in ACR. Give us back the Brotherhood Desmond face though. Having a completely different bone structure made Desmond seem detached and unfamiliar, like a new character. I don't even know why they changed it, he looked fine in Brotherhood, what's the justification for the shift? They updated the graphics from AC to ACB whilst keeping his look, and then this? Wtf, Ubi? I hope the ACII team working on ACIII brings the face they used back.

I think it looks good. He doesn't have a uni-brow (as the original gameplay trailer might suggest), and for a lot of Revelations he looked worried, making him seem more wrinkled. I feel like these two factors contribute to the hate of the new look quite a bit.
