Honestly, doesn't anybody else think her voice sounds well.....a bit boring? I know that Ubi is trying to go with the whole "She's French Creole" thing but it isn't working. ( I have Creole in family so I know how it sounds) but hers Imo, just comes off very cheap and lazy on Ubi's Part. Hopefully if Comet or anything else features her, she gets a major voice like how Altair did in Revelations. ( Even though I like both voices BTW)

What do you guys think? Should she get a new better voice actor?

I actually had a hard time understanding her in Liberation. Not sure if her accent was too thick or my ears just suck. Probably the latter.

I don't think she should get a new voice actor though.

What do you mean major when you're describing ACR Altair? like with an accent?

At least Aveline wasn't as bad as the charm girl Connor had her recruit in the DLC :rolleyes:

Oh the Charm girl in the aveline DLC....augh...

I don't know if voices are supposed to sound like that but it was a strain to hear it.

Kinda.....I just think she needs an "Accent" that's actually clearer to understand and interesting to listen to like Altair in ACR. I'm not saying that Goldfarb is a horrible VA, I just think she did a terrible job at Aveline.

Well altair's accent is very inaccurate and fake in ACR...so I don't think saying you want an accent like Altair's in ACR is the right thing to say because if you think Aveline's accent is bad then Altair's is terrible...at least Goldfarb actually speaks french

No.

1) I hate when they change voices of established characters.

2) I like her voice. She can switch between playful and serious with ease.

Ubi needs to get Troy Baker to voice her in the next game (if there is one), the man is flawless. But seriously though, some lines were cheesy but it also comes down to writing.

Patience Gibbs? Ah, don't get me started at how terrible she was....it was actually the one time I prefered Aveline's Voice. BTW, I don't hate Aveline, she's just not my favorite either.

I admittedly tend to like most voice actors for main characters.

Barring male shep. I admittedly don't like his that much. It's not that it's bad, it's just.. the alternative of Femshep is so much better :P

I must say that I couldn't get into Aveline's voice as well sometimes. A lot of times when she talked I was like ".. Okay, she sounds REALLY weird here," and sometimes her emotions sounded fake. But I don't hate her nor do I like her, but I still think the VA could do better.

If that was the case, then there should have been a thread for Connor's voice actor to be changed too because I'll admit there were times when he sounded just as weird as she did lol..

JustPlainQuirky
07-16-2014, 03:01 AM
Yeah.

At times she sounded like she had marshmellows stuffed in her mouth if that makes sense.

The one time I had an awkward time with Connor's voice was when he said the "tongue has tasted sour grapes" part. I dunno why but it always sounded out of place. Might not have been the voice. Might have been the word choice.

I never said she needed a voice change EXACTLY like Altair. Just one that doesn't put me to sleep.
And regarding the Accents, yes Altair's ACR Accent may be inaccurate, but what about his AC1 voice with a 21st Century American voice? But at least both are those voices including other Assassin's accents are clearer than hers. Btw, the guy who voiced ACR Altair was of Middle Eastern descent.....

It's like ACU, the animus is displaying the language how the user would understand it...an Arab wouldnt hear an accent when other people speak Arabic, Altair had an american accent in AC I but at least the guy voicing him was actually arab and could pronounce Arabic unlike Cas.

He has Iranian descent, they don't speak Arabic..

Ah, I forgot about the Animus & Altair's VA's. So yes, you're right M. But still, I think that Aveline needs a change in her voice none the less. Altair was just an example really......

But regarding Arno's Voice, why does everyone hate that he doesn't have an accent or some sort? I personally like it actually.

they're upset he doesnt sound french for being a french guy. Or Austrian.

I'm mildly upset by it. I'm sure I'll get over it though once i'm fully immersed in the game.

I guess I can understand that. but it doesn't bother me really....I think it suits him better than some French actor that'll probably be hard to understand. But I think they should've at least given him an Austrian accent though.

Well Lafayette had an understanadble voice IMO despite his french accent.

It was mainly Aveline's I had trouble with

But I see where you're coming from. I just would have preferred they tried to find a good french VA instead of going for the 'animus accent translator' thing.

I have less trouble understanding Aveline than I do some modern day people from NOLA. But I keep the subtitles on, mostly so I can learn new curse words. I might be able to forgive Arno's accent if I learn how to say cazzo in French.

I agree about lafayette.......but Aveline? I just cringe at the Liberation voice acting as a whole. ( Except for Agate) but Aveline was among the worst. Hopefully they give her something new, but if they don't, I'll be fine with that.

Yeah Liberation's voice acting was generally bad.

I still remember those two black dudes with the facepaint who had the worst voices ever. One was like "you give us da river" in a super silly voice. it was turrible

The Narrative as a whole was very silly and very boring at the least. Sometimes I actually forget it's an Assassin's Creed game.

Black flag had that problem for me too. Not that the game was bad, but it def didn't feel like I was playing AC at times.

I personally liked Black Flag. But I can understand the disconnect it had with some people. But it's no where further away from it than liberation was. Argh!

@M. I highly agree with you there. AC2/ACB are the worst when it comes down to Character development, Side characters, plot, and just the overall Dis-I mean Templars villains. Btw, why are the Templars even considered Villains in those games!? The other games at least shed some light on that. AC3 especially......

I think Aveline's voice got the job done. It suited her character in Liberation - and the bonus mission - just fine. I guess if they make another game for her they could explore a wider range of emotions. And if they put as much work into all the facial animations (or mocap) and polygons like they did for Connor than it could help compliment Amber's acting.
