Some food for thought

I have heard that in assassins creed 2 knives wont kill in one hit. I believe the is very unrealistic, I throw knives (not because of AC)and when I throw them they are probably going twice as hard into the board that if I went and just stabbed it. So the one hit kill would be realistic in the game even with armor since attair can stab straight through a persons skull with a normal dagger, but I do think that some knives in the game should just bounce off of people, in fact it takes likes 4 years of knife throwing just to be able to stick a knife almost all of the time and since attair throws knifes different ways there would be no way it would stick all the time

This is a game in which people regularly jump off of massive towers into piles of flowers and emerge unscathed. There'll be some inconsistencies.

What he said. They are just using 'Artistic licence' to make the game more exciting, fair or balanced at the cost of realism.

I know that some parts of the game are not realistic, but ubisoft was changing the knife throwing thing, because it was unrealistic

the fact is killing some1 with 2 hit's from a throwing knife is still unrealistic (you would never aim for the head with a knife it's too slow) and two body hit's wouldn't instantly drop some1, it would hurt like hell but it would take you a lot longer to bleed out unless they got a lucky shot.

well you know in ac 1 you can kill someone with a hidden blade by stabbing them in the gut and if you have noticed in the first ac (not sure about the second), but when they fall to the ground they gasp for air and it takes a while for them to die

And that is when Altair has his nice long talk with his assassination targets lol

a stab to the gut could kill some1 fairly quick it's all to do with angle of entry as you can come up under the rib cage and puncture any number of vital organs that would cause a fairly quick death and massive internal injuries.

oh and also attair has been an assassin his entire life he is gonna have great aim when it comes to a knife throwing so there is a high probability that he is hitting places where there a chink in the armor

Well I think it's to make you decide what you want to use. Because the hidden gun kills in one hit but is loud and attracts attention, however the knives are quiet but require 2.

that is true, but i am saying that if they are hit with the butt of the knife instead of the head that would be more realistic than 2 hit kills

Whilst on the subject of throwing knives, did anyone actually use them in AC1? I only used them after I had clocked the game. Even then it was when I got to lazy to actually kill the guards. I will probably do the same in AC II as well.

well i use them to kill the archers since they alert other people

This is slightly off-topic, but I'm hoping that we will be able to throw knives while hanging from beams or while holding onto the side of a wall.... probably not. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I stopped using the throwing knives in AC1 after playing through it the first time because they made it too easy. The only extra challenge, in regards to throwing knives, that seem to be included in AC2 is that they will be more scarce. I don't plan to use them anyway. It's just more fun to sneak up on the guards at the rooftops and take them out up close.

If they made knives 1hko, then there'd be no point to the hidden gun. And to the thekyle0, I doubt Ezio will be able to do that because in all the videos of free running i've seen, Ezio's posture is the same as Altair. :\

And AC1 isn't even a challenge at all as long as you have your counter moves, unless you use nothing but you're fists :P.

I only used them for the bad *** short sword that came with them.
Made the melee combat pace a lot faster and the combo kills with it also looked better than the ones with the long sword.

yes quite often, if I'm ruining in on more than one person throw a knife kill one then it shortens the fight a bit.

I used them when fighting, most of the time by mistake because of targeting and dagger selection. They are quite useful actually, taking a few guards down from the distance.

I used them because they looked very assassin like and cool (i loved the animation). Instead of running up to them you throw a knife with no effort. epic.

Haha i loved just throwing them at the unsuspecting guards on the roof. Wait for them to get close to an edge and have them fall off.

"What happened here!?" "Who did this?!"

ahah i cant wait to hear what the guards say in this game when they find a body that fell off the roof.

Dude, you've been swearing in several of your posts. Chill out, we're not hostile or anything!

On topic, the gun takes a while to reload, so sometimes people want to sacrifice power for speed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I think a two-knife kill would be beter than one shot!

what else i found weird in AC is how the gaurds didn't yell in pain when they got hit but muffled their cries of pain!

Slightly off topic, but Altair was raised in a land ravaged by war for a hundred years, a war in which soldiers wears full armour regularly with enough practice to chase him over rooftops. Meanwhile, the education is astonishingly low and the assassins are a high level threat. I think that clearly explains why Altair can wade through a battlefield and kill with one knife throw while Ezio has more social and technical advantages.
