From one video I saw the enemies glowed when they were being targeted. WTF. Me and my friend discussed it and we thought that its the only thing that will bring it down experience wise. I mean how dumb is the player to not know who he gonna hit next..or what he is chasing after! I DONT WANT GLOWING PEOPLE IN THE 12TH CENTURY!

Does anyone else think its a bad idea?

I did at first but it grew on me and I'm totally ok with it now, and it's been dumbed down a little bit it's hardly noticeable anymore http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Don't you think the modern HUD/Targetting/Effects point to something...?

It's quite fitting, really, and I like it.

Yeah, doh, how dumb do they think we are? Of course we are going to know who we are targeting in a middle of 10 people! Who wouldn't?!

I agree, the targetting is off putting. Hopefully ill get use to it or there create a patch to disable it.

It's the only thing i don't like about the game.

Its there, with the rest of the futuristic stuff from the artistic design...I very much doubt and "Off" button will be placed. People always complain about "But tis in the 12th Century", but it has links to the future which Ubi evidently want to show, and in other threads about these things, The "Resynronising" and all, kinda means that you may-be in a 12th Century environment, but the game its self is a futristic game.....Dont think ive explained my few that well but can't put it into words.

I like it now that its toned down, like a slight outline and the futuristic pieces a little around him

I cant believe almost everyone likes the targeting system!! :| it's sooooooo bad!

How can you even like to fight someone when he's glowing up like that:S that's totally unrealistic for a realistic game.:s

Honestly, since I saw the targeting system, I don't want this game as much as I did before, it ruined the game pretty much.

If the're is no off button for this, it sucks

gosh, the person above needs to be directed to a post I recently made, heres the bit that concerns you:

"The realism... I don't know when it happened, but somewhere along the lines of production, people started to think that this was a realism game. If you've ever seen moqqy post, its either to say something sarcastic, or saying how it isn't realistic. He's right, this game has shown MANY such instanses where realism is replaced with playability. Have you SEEN some of the jumps that Altair attempts, successfully? He can jump into a bale of hay, from great heights, and climb out uninjured. He can jump from rooftop to rooftop, many meters apart, without much of a run-up. All of these instances, and people still think that its the Sci-Fi glow stuff that ruins the realism. The game didn't have that much to start off with. The only truly realistic settings are the time its set, the graphics and the deaths... The rest has been replaced so that the gamer can have as much fun as possible, not so that realism buffs can say "Oh, his leg broke very realisticly after that jump". "

In short, this ISN'T a realistic game, it was never meant to be, and if its ruined the game fo r you, then at least rent it.. Stupidity is reaching a climax so I'll stop before I flame the nooby...

I do not like it.

I am much more a fan of a minimalistic design and something like this easily gets under my skin and just helps take you out of the immersion. I know it shouldn't, but for me it does.

I don't see what would hurt to simply have an option to show a visible lock on, on/off option that the player can decide to turn on or off? That will solve the problem for people like me, and still allow those that like it/don't mind to keep it on.

So many things like this can simply be helped a ton for a person like me by simply having an option and yet many games just don't do it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif.

For me it's not to do with realism. It just looks bad. It's like creating a beautiful renaissance painting and adding a big, bold, yellow circle http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gifin the middle. It ruins it for me.

What if you had a beautiful renaissance painting with genetic memory, and year 2055 (i think? can't remember) and scientists and futuristic barriars (Jade talked about you have to reach a high point and look around before you can go there) then you added a big yello circle?

scientists and futuristic barriars


I still wouldn't like it. I don't like the futureristic targeting system. I don't care if it's part of the grand design, i just don't like the look of it.

I think the glowing is cool. And since when the hell does a game necessarily have to be realistic? Have you ever scene a complete game map when it's in wireframe mode? Have you ever noticed that you are playing a GAME which is DIGTAL. Stop eating **** and if you don't like the bloody effects then guess what? Here's a hint....DON'T BUY IT! THE GLOWING EFFECTS WILL BE PART OF THE GAMES STORYLINE AND GAME PLAY! Now...go polay Gears of War and tell me how much of the chainsaw/machine gun hybrid is real. Go play B.L.A.C.K. or any other game and tell me how much of getting struck 1.00 times in the head and living is realistic. Go and try it out, have your friend grab a sword and smack you in the head, then post and tell me if you survived or not. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif
