I believe they'll be Ezio's match, in terms of skill so to speak. Like they've been trained to specifically fight the Assassins after many years of preparation.

It will take more than a few more men to take a team of them down I hope

I don't think you want to send an apprentice to a Papal guard in a fair fight

I mostly agree with that except i think a level ten assassin could beat a papal guard

My guess is that they'll end up no better than the Brute. I remember lots of people on here thinking the Brute would be one of Ezio's real nemesis' when the suggestion was first made, not some sword fodder in a tin can http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Kinda hard to say since none of us have actually seen a Papal Guard in action. All I know is that they're SUPPOSED to be tougher than any of the guards in AC2

If I saw those guys wearing Papal guard armor I'd probably cry myself to sleep. Anyway, I don't get the impression that there will be hybrid archetypes.

I for one am hoping that even the highest level recruit won't stand a chance againgst a Papal Guard. They should be elite, to be fair you should get a fail sound effect (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eieOoUUl9RY&hd=1) or even some fail trumpets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMpXAknykeg) whenever you try to use B.A.M. on them lol

Also, by description they are the Popes guard so I can't imagine we'll bump into them randomly in the streets of Roma.

If a recruit is daft enough to take on a Papal Guard or you're daft enough to try to send them in... they should die!!

One thing that confuses me, the Swiss Papal Guard weren't present in the Vatican until 1506 yet they're present in the trailer which is 1503. Suppose it's not a big deal... or my source is wrong *cough*wiki*cough* http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah, i hope they are good. Naa Robson, we should get those sound effects when they die http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

But i'm guessing they will come later in the game and will be in the rich areas, and pretty much covering the Vatican!

That's what happens when positions like that become ceremonial, apparently you need a degree to be a Papal Guard now which should tell you what kind of people apply for the position.

Think about those idiots that stand outside Buckingham Palace... same deal.
