does the hidden blade always have to be used for assassinations? whats to stop me from running down with my sword out and stabbing him, or using my shortdagger to slash out his eye. or even throwing a knife(most-proably not available due to game balance). Discuss

they probably only do that in the demo's and whatnot because it looks badass. you can probably do it with everything else except throwing knife

I'm pretty sure you have to use the hidden blade to kill the target, but not 100 percent sure.

i think that you can only assassinate with the hidden blade
reasons

1.To come close to the target,to make it tricker to kill and escape, or chase

2.if you look at the videos with the HUD shown it says assassinate when near target and press that it will automaticly attack with the hidden blade(thats what im thinking dont FLAME)

No reason to flame at all. I too think the same as you. It is probably a game mechanic for balance and difficulty/challenge.

You can use anything, except the daggers aren't one shot kill. iamaltair is right, they wouldn't garuntee total assassination freedom and then only make it possible to use one weapon! But good thread, i think this needed to be discussed

From what i've seen in gameplay videos, a 4 way thing popps up in the bottom left of the screen. Up is hidden blade, Right is Throwing Knife, Down is Sword, Left is Dagger. Or something like that.
Now in most other games, that 4 way menu is mapped onto the D-pad (the 4 arrows on the controller). I might be wrong, but its the only thing that makes logical sense for quick and easy access during a fight.

Sorry for the double post.
I've seen video of Altair sword fighting with that Slave Trader guy they assassinated at E3 07, and i've heard in interviews jade talking about getting into sword fights with enemy bosses. So it would only make sense that they would allow us to kill the enemy bosses during a sword fight without having to use the hidden blade.
The reason they use the hidden blade during E3, or big showcases is because it is Altair's signature move. Its what makes him a Hashashin and not a character from Oblivion. Its the exact same reason that in every single Lord of The Rings movie commercial that they show Frodo and the Ring. We all know he has it, but its what sets him apart, what makes him Frodo and not some other random hobbit.
Ya feel me?

Actually you have to use the hidden blade for the assassinations they wont die with anything else.

Nope, wrong, Goose.

In one of the previews (The one that starts out with a story), they say they could've taken the whole "stealthy and hidden blade" method, but instead, they when 'Rambo' and killed him with sword, after an "extensive sword fight with the guards".

I am pretty sure that you can use whatever weapon you want to (except the throwing knives i think) assassinate your target with. But "The Hidden Blade" is made for the job. (Xbox 360 version) I saw Altair walking up this target and the function "Assassinate" popped up on the 'X' button. I don't even think that you need to draw your Hidden Blade before the function appears. My guess would be that when you press the X button when the function appears, Altair automatically draws The Hidden Blade and assassinates his target.

They have said you have to kill your main target with the hidden blade, it's the Hashashins ritual or something.....

Isn't it a rule in the Assassin Guil, to assassinate your target using the blade? If i recall correct, i think i read somewhere that Altir is going to have to dip a feather with the targets blood in order to prove he killed him. I'm guessing that "feather" ties in with your hdden blade....hey i might be wrong....but i swear i read somewhere that it was hidden blade only >< i mean.....Jump at a guy from a rooft top and shank him in the face with a 4inch blade.....or go Tencho on him and stab him with a sowrd......

You can kill your target with the Short Sword, The Sword and the Switch Blade, but not the Throwing Daggers.

It makes the game too easy if you could use them, although they do dammage to your target

They are probably showing the Hidden Blade only, because going Rambo and killing your target is just like any other game!

OK it was confirmed in an interview with jade or patrice ( i can't remember who) that all weapons except the throwing knives can be used for assassinations. THE END.

In one of the E3 07 demo,s altair knocked the guy to the floor with his sword which should have kill him,but He didnt die because u can only assassinate with the wrist blade.When the guy was on the ground he used it to kill him.(I think the demo i,m on about is at gamespot)

guys remember what patrice said?!?!

depends on WHO your assassinating. talals a whimp so ya gotta neck stab him. but if you face some knight or something he will face you head on and you could fight head on.

I'd rather come up behind and hidden knife stab http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You can only kill your targt with the hidden blade. This was confirmed by Jade or Patrice (not sure, but I think Jade) in an interview.

Your target is immune to all other attacks. He will fall, but he won't die.

Otherwise, there would be no point to the hidden blade.

The E3 2007 demo how many months ago was that I would hope that the development has progressed from july to november.

The point of the hidden blade is to be stealthy but it is confirmed that you don't have to be stealthy to assassinate a target.

pretty sure i read that you can assassinate with only the wrist blade...but you can kill with all weapons minus the throwing knives, it just depends if you wanna sword fight, and risk fighting the target, guards and losing your target in the mass soldiers and fighting...just the wrist blade is a quick in and out way to do it

I guess Alta´r would assassinate the whole Ubi team if they decide that the game can be completed without the hidden-dagger, or perhaps not kill, just cut of their one ring-finger just so they know how it feels like
