Is it just me, or is Connor's voice acting a bit too monotonous? I guess it was okay during the main story missions (Except for when he was speaking in the Native American language. That was horrendous, but that was pretty much for all Native American characters. Did the Animus lose the ability to translate voices with the new update Rebecca did?), but when it comes to stuff outside it, like Homestead missions, it's as if he's just reading out the lines monotonously like a robot.

English isn't his first language. I thought the same as you at first, but then I thought more on it and I really like it now. I guess it just took time to get used to it.

He's Native-American in his language using emotion in speech (like Japanese) is a strange concept.
You could have turned subtitles on, it'll translate the languages.

I thought his voice acting was sub-par at first as well, but it grew on me. And by the end of the story, I loved hearing Connor speak. Can't really say what changed my mind exactly.

It's how native Americans really speak in English (I know because his voice actors Native american) and it can easily grow on you, and the argument he doesn't convey much emotion in his voice is ridiculous, not only that he conveys much emotion in his body language as well.

So, talking with little emotion is a normal thing to Native Americans? Something I didn't consider.

I mean, for lines like this, for example, I'd normally expect someone to say with some feeling, rather than drawling it out.

Oh, and off topic, but related to the quote above: Japanese show enough emotion when speaking.

I would say that they wanted to add some Native-American culture into the game.

The main problem I had with the Connor's voice is the fact that 13 year old Connor sounds the exact same as 25 year old Connor. It's quite ridiculous.

Ezio was really always "Cool" AFTER he became an Assassin. He never showed anger AFTER he became an Assassin..

I actually laughed at that. Felt like he was screaming like a kid who had his favourite toy taken away by someone. :p

And there was also "If I ever see you on this land again, I will END YOU".

Not that Connor didn't have his share of outbursts. I'm talking about normal speech.

It's not just anger that I'm referring to as emotion. He didn't speak in monotone like Connor does. And he was angry enough when facing the pope, and that was long after he became an Assassin.

Angry at the Pope ?? xD When was that ?? It was cool anger really...

Dont get me wrong. I LOVED Ezio...But Connor showed WAY more VARIED emotion...

did you ever see Ezio genuinely happy ? Ezio was always cool, flirty, surprised or angry :P

When Connor was angry he WAS angry...When he was happy..You could feel it..he does not have to be "YAAAAAAAAY" I felt it..his face..his body language. and when Connor was cold..Boy was he COLD

I felt like when Connor was angry, he was angry, and when he was happy, he was monotone. It's not exactly about what kinda emotions he has. It's how he delivers the lines. Considering as Noah Watts is a Native American, I guess maybe that really is how they speak.

And Ezio was angry enough at the pope. Especially in the first "kill" sequence, where Rodrigo pretty much plays dead.

Connor`s sorrow got to me mostly through his facial emotion...

I was just making a point..

There are people who speak that way..

Try living a life where your held by the throat, hit with a rifle butt, see people burning alive and witness your mother dying when you`re 5...then live with the thought that at any minute DOZENS of Colonists are going to smash your home and take your land when you`re 14 then kill people for a living when you`re 18 and kill your father when you`re 27...What a happy life...he probably doe snot even know HOW to convey happiness

If that tone of voice is intentional, your point stands. That's something I didn't consider. Mainly cause there were points in the main story where he actually spoke with emotion.

The Emotions he showed during the Story that were emphasized on were either anger or sorrow...the only 2 he ever lived with his entire life..He was literally surrounded by anger and sorrow

Connor's voice was just right.
Now that I think of it, Ezio's voice hardly showed any emotion except a few times. People didn't find it monotonous because he had an accent.
Anyway, I wonder who voiced child Connor in the game. I really loved his voice when he was a child. Usually child voice actors are god **** annoying, but I appreciate that Ubi chose carefully and didn't hire the first child they met along the way. Something interesting I noticed though, it might seem stupid, but don't you guys find young Connor's voice similar to young Simba's from The Lion King? XD Even their adult voices are similar at times, though Connor's voice seems a bit more deep. :P
