Well you guys all like to complain don't you. Your all making a big deal out of nothing, come on guys seriously. Who actually cares about about the voice, its only a tad deeper.

It was a great review, the best I have seen from him in a while. But nothing can top his earlier work.

AshuraSpeaks:

Kudos, this is what I was skimming to see if anyone else had noticed it. And it's your tenth post! How 'bout that?

Welcome to The Escapist Forums.

Thanks. And...well what can I say? I lurk a lot? d=P

Even after maxing out the casa, having money (for me) is nice; because of my OCD I feel the need to dye the Assassin's robes a different color every hour. I don't know...

Woot, I'm glad I'm not the only one a bit irked about the utterly disapointing final boss fight wherein you beat down the Rennaissance ancestor of Drew Carry and Charles Manson.

Another terrific point he made was Da Vinci's flying machine. Basically half the fucking hype revolved around being able to use it and you do that once.
Da Vinci could have made you a jetpack variant or something to use in other areas after jumping off towers, maybe using chimneys as heat sources rather than bonfires.

Meh, it's still a good game and one of Yahtzee's better reviews.

P.S. Why the fuck does everyone care so much that he sounds a bit different in this? It's still funny and it's still obviously him.

Alias42:
Blimey, Yahtzee has jumped the shark. I used to watch all of his movie two or three times and laugh throughout, but this one wasn't even chuckle-worthy. I think Wolfenstein was the last proper "funny" review, it was downhill from there.

In other news PC games are dying.

What's up with the voice? Are you sick, Yahtzee?

So has anyone unlocked the secret Da Vinci grenade launcher yet?

...........

Who are you?

Yahtzee, I gota tell ya, I made this account JUST for the sake of asking you to please revert back to the normal mic. It's simply a lot better....

My guess is that it was someone else doing the first half.

Some kind of reference to Ezio and Desmond perhaps...

No really, I am totally questioning the credibility that the voice on this video was indeed Ben Croshaw.

I like the new mic, although sounds abit like theres too much foam cover on it. Still not gonna complain, felt like I discovered a really old ZP.

Well the chinese had been slowly floating gunpowder through the silk road for awhile at the 1500 year mark, so It's possible there might have been like a flint lock or something, if you , nevermind too much reasoning I that Ubi should have done.

Hey, not everything made in Canada/by Canadians is bad!

Huh, his voice sounded a bit weird. Off that note though, the criticism in this review pretty much showed that what IS bad in the game is so arbitrarily small that it shouldn't hurt the overall experience. I loved the first game, and I'm excited to get this one for the upcoming holiday.

His voice does seem different...

Anyway, I think he pretty much summmed up my feelings.

Though, to be fair, did he expect the boss fight to be something out of Shadow Of The Colossus?

Oh, another thing, THERE WERE GUNS IN THE RENAISSANCE! Christ, that was one of the big military achievements in that time. If my history is correct, I'm pretty sure gun powder was invented in the 1300s. And seriously, from what everyone has told me, the gun is hard to aim, so it's not THAT much of an advantage.

funny, I didn't notice anything different with Yahtzee's voice.

anyway, the gameplay on this game impressed me, seemingly everyone on Escapist seems to like it, even Yahtzee says this game is good.

Ezio, consider me sold on Assassin's Creed 2.

Whatever the shortcomings of AC2 may prove to be, I will remember it fondly for making me fall over laughing at the 'It's a-me, Mario!' bit.

I like the voice Yahtzee is using as it is somewhat reminiscent of the voice he used in his older reviews. About Assassin's Creed II, he was right on the money.

Is is just me, or has Yahtzee's voice changed a lot?

I thought it was a joke until I saw past the credits.

Yeah, for the first couple hundred years after guns were invented, they had an accurate range of about 100 yards (compared to the 180 and 320 offered by longbows and crossbows respectively), took about two minutes to reload, and had the rather obnoxious habit of sometimes exploding and killing the person firing it.

agreed i think he nuked the fridge. I gave up on him long ago but a friend said "...but he's doing you new game..." i said "big fucking deal" then decided wtf. yahtzee,the simpsons, south park, and SNL please fucking quit you suck! thank you good night.

Pure golden awesomeness Yahtzee.

SirusTheMadDJ:
The man has a cold. Check back to the Heavenly Sword(s) video for proof.

Well if that's the case he also had a cold when he reviewed The Darkness, Fable 1, Psychonauts, BioShock, Tomb Raider Anniversary, Manhunt, Peggle, Halo 3...etc.

After quickly his voice in this review to his last one I am 99% sure he got better equipment, his voice is crisper and louder, that is all. Otherwise it's the same old Yahtzee.

Megaman0:
What was up with his voice? Nice review though and I'm 3 for 3 in the predict which game will be on ZP next...

of course you are ive picked em all to its not like they werent the obvious ones for him to review i didnt see him reviewing lego rock band or band hero this week and not much else has come out

If you think they suck, don't watch and go away. I don't understand, no ones forcing you to watch so why do you think they should go away. Others like them, but you don't and everyone has to go out of their way to please you? Honestly.

Mr Scott:

I don't think that's OCD, I think that's just you being weird. Is it so you can figure out which one he looks best in because that makes more sense.

I say this because I have OCD and that makes me less likely to waste money on dying robes...unless it's free or there's some type of benefit to gameplay.

So apparently I haven't gone crazy and am NOT the only one to notice his voice. I think he may have a cold or something. I don't know though, he sounded sort of comfortable, I guess. I hope this isn't a regular thing. This "new" voice actually sort of bored me. For the first time watching a ZP video, I actually put my headset back ON and started talking to friends on skype DURING the video.

BlackWidower:

...You do know you can have a blocked up nose for less than a week....right?

Also, I've never known common colds that last a month....Let alone a week.

Maybe he finally hit puberty and this is his grown up voice?

Yahtzee has laryngitis?

Because no one else has mentioned this yet: WHAT HAPN TO YAHTXZEE VOICE?

The review was okay, I'm surprised he didn't mention the amount of dialog in the game (and how it's not English [or if he did, I didn't hear it]).

But I'm not happy with the new watermark placement on the videos. Seriously, guys.

Nothing does quite top the hugging stab kill.

Exactly my point.

Who the hell cares about his voice? It still sounds like him and it was still a great review.

Anyway,

I'm surprised he didn't mention the graphics, which personally I thought were worse than 'Ass I'
Oh, and the bloody collectables return, this time 100 feathers...
