    I'm so disappointed with AC:B's graphics. Pfff. Horses in RDR looks incredibly real!! AC:B horses do not seem to be horses at all. They are huge and move like a camel or something. Ridiculous to see Ezio riding on that beast. RDR for me is the best game ever, and Ubisoft needs some time spent around horses,because those creatures were not horses. (Although I agree that Ezio runs more often in the game, but please, take the horse riding option out of the game if you can't make a horse decently. And in RDR J. Marston also climbs roofs and it seems really nice, too.)

    Whoooo....Horse ass :D Honestly I like the more realistic looking horse of RDR but being I haven't played it yet >_>; I do not hold the opinion of saying such things. I do like the Horse of AC Brotherhood but I m more of a Jumping from roof to roof kind of girl. So :D Honestly both games by viewing them are purely awesome. Why compare? ^_^;

    In AC's defense, the gameplay is not revolved around the horse as it was in RDR. Travel is more fun across the buildings and the city is close quarters. You do not need the horse in AC, so I personally can look past the fact that the horse is not "natural" as compared to RDR

    AC:B horses seem to have hydraulics in the rear end. And their gait just doesn't seem to be animated very well. In RDR the horses seem to have a more natural flow in general.

    What's wrong with the hind legs on the AC:B horse? Something just doesn't look right about the movement, and the crazy height. I can't wait to play AC, but Rockstar definitely gets the win. I remember reading about how much work went into RDR's horses. I'm curious if Ubisoft motion-captured their horses.

    The camera is far too close in AC:B, and there are less animations because the horses have fewer number of speeds. RDR has to get the win because the horse has several different speeds at which it can be ridden (although this was not featured in the comparison video). As many have already said, AC:B also contains horses that are built oddly large. Additionally, I hate myself for commenting on this, and also love it. ;)

    RDR horse's are top notch in battle situations, but you have to give AC some credit for beautiful looking steads and melee abilities (with your sword of course). Undead Nightmare just made the choices that much better.

    I agree with most people that the horses in red dead look much better, and are more to scale, but one thing I noticed was that they gallop ridiculously fast, not even racehorses gallop that fast. Now, they probably did this so that people wouldn't get bored galloping around all day at normal speeds (given how big that map is). I must admit, having riden horses many times before, the movement of the AC:B one is a lot more realistic.
    Either way though, the horses of Red Dead are way better than AC:B

    Red Dead's animation looks better, but Brotherhoods horses are much improved over AC2's. I've been playing through AC2 over the last few days and, man, the horses look horrendous after having played Red Dead Redemption (particularly with them fresh in mind thanks to Undead Nightmare). Read Dead Redemption just may have ruined horses for any other game for me.

    RDR horses hands down. You can use them anywhere at any time and your can shoot your horse if it continues to be an ass by walking away. There are also many different variations so it really isn't any contest.

    RDR's horse looks much better it actually looks to scale. Brotherhood is riding a freaking horse-zilla!

    Question for Abbie Heppe; you were impressed by the horse asses in Red Dead. What do you think about the horse asses in AC: Brotherhood?

    Is this even a contest? Obviously Rockstar spent a little more time on the horse seeing is was going to a huge part of the game. In Assassin's Creed a huge part of travel is running, call my crazy. I care more about how Ezio looks while he walks, never really cared much for the horse in AC.

    Red Dead's horse wins easily. The movement of the hairs on the Assassin's creed horse look way too unnatural and when the horses run, the assassins creed horse looks like it is doing more of a stiff trot.

    Both are great pieces of ass. Let the ass wars begin.
