So, im replaying AC1 right now, and i took note of Altair's climbing motions. I didnt notice them as much with ezio because his climbing is faster and much more unrealistic, but i actually really like the animations for climbing in this game. But let me elaborate, i'm refering to his 'wide grip' climbing, if you get what i mean. Altair had two main climbing looks; close grip (in which he looked almost like spiderman), and wide grip which looked extreamly realistic, its so believable since Altair actually looks around at his hand-holds and grips. So, my point is, i'm REALLY hoping that the rock/mountain/buliding/etc. climbing in AC3 will look this realistic. I know it would be a nuisence to make Connors climbing animations really slow, so im mot hoping for an extream sluggishness, but, PLEASE Ubisoft, slow his climbing down just a little? Dont have him catapaulting up surfaces like ezio did, it was way too unrealistic. Also, have Connor actually look around for hand and foot holds before just reaching out randomly, it would make a huge differemce. And im hoping they wont make a similar "spiderman" animation for Connor, it just looked awkward IMO...

And yes, ive seen every single interview and news article on this game to date, so i know that all of Connors animations are fresh and that the rock climbing animations were mo-capped from actual rock climbers, which is why i have such high hopes for the climbing system. I just felt like ranting about this to people who im guessing enjoy these games as much(if not more) than i do.

I'd like to hear everyone else's thoughts/opinions on what the climbing should be like?

I agree, although I love AC2, ACB, and ACR, it seemed like Ezio had a grappling hook.

That was already said in the OP.

I really agree with you, and adore how Altair climbs in this: http://youtu.be/yJ_cOE801_Y?t=45s

Just flows so well and looks much more realistic for some reason.

Exactly! I love those wide-grip animations. Im crossing my fingers for something like that in AC3.

Yeah, every main Assassin has their own style, Conner will have something different as well.
