View Full Version : graphics in AC1 vs AC2

01-07-2011, 05:50 AM
I'm sad that ubisoft did not focus in graphics of AC2 such as AC1
I see AC1 is more real than AC2 alot and very much
there are things or items not important in AC1, and you'll find that Ubisoft focused in their graphics so much
and you see that in AC1 the sunlight comes and goes like real, you see some very small cracks in buildings ubisoft is focused on them too
and you will not see this in AC2
I wanna I know from ubisoft why they did not perfect in AC2 such as AC1

is there anyone agree with me ?

I want to know from anyone played AC brotherhood to say his view about the graphics
and compare with AC1

(excuse me for the language, I'm not good at English)
and thank you

please reply me

I generally agree. I find the graphics in AC2 are a lot "warmer"...just seems like there is a lot more colour in them than AC. this tends to make things look less realistic, imo. AC had very true colours; they didn't try and play up un-colourful things for the camera. If something should be brown, it was brown, not brown with a load of red thrown in to make it look more colourful.

I have and it looks like SH!! compared to AC1.
BTW AC2 is my fave AC game then AC1 and Then ACB cuz ACB felt like an expansion pack more than a whole new game.

If you scroll down a bit you'll find some screenshot comparisons I made between AC1 and AC2, and yes I agree with OP.

I don't agree... completely.

I feel the world and the panoramas have gotten much better, just like animations.

And maybe it's hard to believe but TO ME faces have gotten progressively better.
Lucy is a clear example of this. Her face in AC1 was HORRIBLE, but by Brotherhood she looks MUCH Better, even pretty dare I say. (Looks more real, and looks more like Kristen Bell http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)

An issue I've always had is that not every face is as detailed. You can see Lucy and Cristina, even Mario Auditore at the beginning of AC:B have better faces that in previous games and their faces are more detailed than say, Desmond's or Ezio's.
Cesare was... my favorite enemy/villain so far, but his face could have been animated and detailed a lot more.
Another issue I've always had is: THE HANDS. Whenever Ezio hugs someone, or in some animations, hands look COMPLETELY FAKE and sometimes even penetrate bodies, like there was no sense of limits.

Compared to other games, I believe the AC world is Extremely detailed and good looking.
But compared to those other games, even though IMHO graphics have improved over the course of the games, characters and NPCs, people in general, look less detailed and less real.
