I came across this old quiz and thought I'd show it my all conquering brain power.... I'm sure many of you have done this before but feel free to make me feel unworthy by posting your scores ;)

deeply ashamed to say.... 4 out of 20 :o

Only 14, I'm quite disappointed. :p

Although AC1 is the one I've played the least, by far.

Me too 15/20... But I haven't played this game for more than 5 years... Are there any quizzes for other Assassin's Creeds?

18/20, mofos :p

Although I have to admit a few were blind guesses, I mean who the hell remembers exactly how many flags there were?

18/20.

I mixed up the names in #10 and got the location of the Holy Cathedral wrong.

16/20

I'm happy with that. :) I forgot the name of the night club Desmond worked in, the number of flags in the Kingdom, the surcoat of William de Montferat and the one about the mosque.

17/20 though I guessed the first one and a few others, so it should probably be a 14.

Showing off my ignorance of Islamic architecture here, but isn't it pretty standard for an Old World mosque to have four minarets?

12/20. Perfect balance between solid knowledge, while at the same time not being a nerd (lol at those who got 13+).

I know right, and anyway how am I supposed to remember the name of the most random mosque ever even though I'm probably sounding really stupid now coz it's probably really famous isn't it.

14/20. Most questions I answered wrong were about details; amounts of flags, amount of golden lions etc. :o
This really made me want to play AC1 again though!

Haha, exactly the same here... though I feel pretty nerdy for even knowing what I did.

There's really no standard. Most famous old world mosques had less than 4. More were added later for some. It's more of a stylistic choice for balance. You know. 4 for each side.

Hehehe, it's the third most famous mosque in the Levant and is considered by some to be the fourth holiest place in Islam. But that's okay not to know, I probably know much less about other civilizations, lel

Cool, thanks for the info. Seems like I remember something now about the Hagia Sophia in Revelations (which basically provided me with the entire extent of my current knowledge of Islamic architecture) having its second, third, and fourth minarets added later and they just put them in the game for recognition's sake.

:nonchalance:

14/20. Sadly, I got the number of flags right. But Forbidden Fruit would have been a much better name for Desmond's bar.

Erm...

**raises hand slowly**

Seriously, through, there were 100, each, in every city and the Kingdom, it's not that much of a stretch to remember. Masyaf on the other hand...I dunno, something like 20?

^ Got 17/20 for the AC2 quiz - that's pretty good I suppose. Couldn't remember who Darius killed, embarrassingly I got the one about improvised weapons wrong - shut up I thought it might have been a trick question - and wasn't sure what the most powerful hammer was...

EDIT: Took the character quiz, I got Arno: "You're the vengeful Assassin! You care little for revolution and political ideologies - you just want personal justice, whatever the cost."

Sounds like Arno alright, doesn't sound like me though, I didn't really like the wording of the questions... :p

Got 19/20 for the AC2 quiz. The question about Ezio's armor was the only one that tripped me.

For the character quiz, I also got Arno.

17/20 for AC1 (was wrong with the bar name, the amount of flags, the amount of minarets), and 19/20 with AC2, was wrong with the Roman god name.

Though quite frankly, the AC2 one has an ACB questions, which shows how much the creators themselves know about AC2 :p

Got 18/20 in AC2 Quiz. :"YOU’RE THE BEST! AROUND! NOTHING’S EVER GOING TO KEEP YOU DOWN!"
Got 15/20 in AC1 Quiz :"NICE GOING, THERE COULD BE A CAREER IN ANSWERING QUIZ QUESTIONS AHEAD OF YOU"

So, yay?

And apparently I'm Ezio: You're the playboy Assassin! You do things your way, and people love you for it. Have you, by any chance, punched the Pope?

Nothing too difficult here.

And I'm Edward apparently.... Absolutely not.

12/20. Hah, I suck. :p No longer a 'true' fan.

Was always going to happen though, I'm terrible at remembering names - and there were a fair few I plain forgot from AC1 it seems.

Cool, I tried to find one yesterday, but the first one I found had some of the answers wrong, so I gave up.

19/20 (armor type). But I didn't know you could kill someone with a violin, so I'll have to try that sometime.

17/20 on the AC2 one, but to be honest I felt like I must have been pretty lucky as I guessed at like half or something.

AC2 was easier for me, I got 17 out of 20.
There must've been some Bonfire of the Vanities stuff in there, because I had no idea on a few of them. Also, are the "improvised weapons" part of the DLC too, because I definitely don't remember that.

Improvised weapons is not DLC, it's always been part of the game. You can pick brooms, guitars, rakes, basically everything that NPCs except boxes :)

The Savonarola questions are from Bonfire--you should play it, it's good. Improvised weapons--if you bump into someone sweeping or raking (or apparently violining), you can pick up the broom or rake or violin and beat the nearest guard to death with it. You should try it, it's fun.

18/20 on the AC2 quiz. Got the question about Savonarola's lieutenants and Ezio's armor wrong.

And apparently I'm Ezio.

Edit: It bugs me that the AC2 quiz included an event that actually happened in ACB (someone harassing Cristina).

The Christina memories in Brotherhood were in the AC Renaissance Bowden book, which I read in between AC2 and ACB. I was like,"This wasn't in the game" and "Oh, there they are."

They actually were supposed to be in ACII originally. If you dig in the game code, you can find the traces...

I didn't expect to score THAT high!! :cool:

The name of the bar Desmond worked at, number of watchtowers in the kingdom and number of flags in Acre's rich district were the ones I got wrong.

Doesn't matter, the quiz was about AC2 the game, not the book. Some of these questions are so down to minutiae (number of flags in a certain district etc.) that it's odd they attributed this to entirely the wrong game.

AC1: 12/20 - Not bad; especially considering that I've only rented and played the game once - ( But I suppose if this were a test, then I failed) - props to the nerds that got 15 and over. :p

AC2: 16/20 - Seems I knew more about the game than I thought - especially since I've also played it once as well.

Now I want to attend a class with all of you. :rolleyes:

As for the Assassin quiz, I got Alta´r. Because that's how I roll. :cool:

I got Arno. But looking at the date, that quiz was published before Unity released. I don't recall much being known about Arno before we actually got to play the game.
How does this work :p

Got 15/20 for AC1 and 19/20 for AC2. Nice.

That Assassin quiz makes it too obvious which answer goes for which character though :/

You just can't get good help nowadays.

That would have made it easier.

I wonder if you can beat a minstrel with his own lute.

14/20 for AC2

I'm surprised I got 10 for AC1 some of those questions were bizarre;).
