Felt like that was the case from watching the trailers. Kassandra seems to have some character to her while Alexios is very wooden. Likely down to differing voice acting skills. I'll likely play Kassandra when I get it.

goodwin8d ago

Can't say I like any of them, lack charisma or something.

ninsigma8d ago

Yeah Kassandra doesn't seem like she's up there in terms of great characters by any stretch of the imagination but certainly is my preference within the game.

Christopher8d ago

IMHO, you get the best of both worlds by playing Kassandra. She's not as good as FemShep or Aloy, but still good for an open world game where she has to repeat thousands of lines that really have no meaning from one moment to another.

What do mean by best of both worlds?

Christopher7d ago

@Dragon I can't really go too much into it without spoiling it, but Kassandra is the better protagonist voice actor.

Maybe he's just supposed to be a hard ass? He comes off that way to me and I dig it.

Hardiman8d ago (Edited 8d ago )

Yeah she looks better and her voice is leagues better the his! He sounds like an idiot, even goofy at times!

Cueil7d ago

At no point have I ever felt he sounded goofy...

Hardiman7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Really, from jump street my wife was laughing at him! He just is too over the top in his delivery. I'm playing as him so it's not like I haven't been listening to him. That said it's not as jarring as it was in the beginning.

Maybe it helps that I was playing Shenmue before I started playing this game

Shiken7d ago

Thats cool, still playing as Alexios though.

-Foxtrot8d ago

Maybe if they focused on just her as a character then the game would have been better done. Least in Syndicate Jacob and Evie felt like two different people.

Christopher8d ago

The problem with that is I hated having to play as one of them because the other made me realize how much I disliked having to play as the other.

Exvalos8d ago

Syndicate was boring and both characters were nothing to write home about.

Smokehouse8d ago (Edited 8d ago )

The voice acting and animations for the dude are pretty awful. I can confirm. I haven’t tried her yet.

CarlDechance8d ago

Yeah, the animations for Alexios looked bizarre in videos I saw before launch. The voice acting is just horrible. Kassandra feels much more natural as a character.

Elda8d ago

I knew I was going to pick her to play the game before buying it & I like her character so far including the game.
