The categories are:

-Favorite playable character
-Favorite villain
-Favorite secondary character (e.g. Leonardo, Achilles, Malik, Adewale etc.)
-Favorite female character
-Favorite modern assassin
-Favorite multiplayer character (if you wish)


My choices:

Playable characters: Ezio, Alta´r, Haytham
Villain: Warren Vidic
Secondary character: Malik
Female character: Ziio, Rosa
Modern assassin: Rebecca


EDIT: Added "Favorite modern assassin".

Hmm interesting you guys like Altair's voice. To me that performance came off as lifeless. And not in a smart concious way, but more of a reading from a paper kind of way.

Favorite Secondary Character: Achilles
Favorite Female Character: Lucy
Favorite Modern Assassin: William
Favorite Multiplayer Character: N/A

Honestly, AC has some pretty darn good voice acting. The only BAD voice I can think of was AC1's Altair. Because of this, I'm going to do a runner up list.

Playable Character: Ezio
Villain: Haytham
Secondary Character: Yusuf
Female Character: Cristina
Modern Assassin: Desmond

AC4 looks like it'll have some great voices, but until I'll play the game, I'll hold off.

Some voices do sound really nice, but I think I'll stick to their acting ability. It's difficult because there have been so many characters, I know I'm going to miss a few that should be on my list.

Playable characters: Haymitch (Everything he says and how he says it seems very natural. It doesn't sound like it's off a script to make it easier for the player.)
Villain: John Pitcairn.
Secondary character: Not many stand-outs that I've seen, personally. I believe Adewale will be my favorite, but because I haven't seen enough of him, I'm going with Prince Suleiman. He speaks softly and still can show a range of emotions. Leonardo tended to either underact or overact, unfortunately.
Female character: Ziio (I don't know if it's because finding professional Mohawk actors proved difficult, but a lot of the tribe's actors didn't sound too professional. However, this shatters some doors in acting and makes people sound like people. Nobody speaks perfectly without inflections.)
Modern assassin: Everybody but Shaun (and maybe Rebecca) sound like they're reading off cards; speaking as if they were in a movie and not in real life. Shaun speaks the way a slightly arrogant person with so much knowledge would.

To be honest, I'm not even sure if his acting is good or just his accent is good.

Assassin's Creed Revelations fixed it for you. He sounds much more lively.

-Playable character voice- Ezio, dat Spanglishtalian accent <3 Especially in ACR
-Villain voice- Haytham easily, perfect blend of "I'm classy as hell" and "don't **** with me"
-Secondary character voice- Achilles' with his wise old-man rasping
-Female character voice- Dobby hands-down with that Irish crooning
-Modern assassin voice- Shaun, was this ever in doubt
-Multiplayer character voice- the one with the funky German accent

I didn't list Haytham as a villain because I see him more as an anti-hero. Compared with Lee who became a racist, genocidal bastard, Haytham retained at least some of his idealism and genuine wish for peace.

I just kind of assumed we were defining "villain" as "assassination target." If not, AC doesn't really have that many true villains outside of AC2 and Brotherhood.

There's Al Mualim and some of the other more selfish assassination targets of AC1, who did what they did not because of some noble cause but for their own benefit. Hickey and Lee from AC3 count for the same reasons.

I agree with that. :) It's just that I really didn't like Charles Lee at all, including his voice. >_<

So, I wouldn't class Haytham as a "villain" in the same way as I would Charles Lee.

It was because ultimately he was against the Assassins, and he does have a great voice. ;)

I really liked Lee's voice personally, one of the best performances in the game.

It was a great performance and very convincing, which is exactly how he made me dislike him. :p

Yeah, especially Vane. When he threatens to rip out a guy's guts, you believe him.

That, and he sounds like Lemmy ;)
