First off wut the heck is up with the glyph thing anyway. PROGRAMMERS WHAT WHERE YOU THINKING. this is the most juvenile thing I have seen in a video game since floppy disk ghostbusters or carmen sandiego. lets get real 2010 is right around the corner we are on the cusp of video game technology. and yall have the nerve to throw a weak puzzle game in here that takes away from this truely revolutioary game. The tracking and citys are awesome this game was really beautifully put together. This whole glyph puzzle thing truely let me down. Otherwise the game is sweet. Please someone in ubisoft leak out the answers to the glyph puzzles so we can all go to sleep. I am truely sick of trying to find out which five pictures match up to the shotty clue. I am not tom hanks and this is not angels and demons. WTF

the puzzles are quite simple if you think about the questions it pretty much gives you the answer. I think they make a nice break from the game.

How the f*ck do you dislike them?
The glyphs were INCREDIBLY well done.
A marvelous feature to include in the game and I hope to see such a thing again.
It wasn't too hard, and besides if you don't get it, then just look it up. =/

It was deep and puzzling and goes so well for the Assassin's Creed genre.
By all means, Ubisoft, I'd love if that was repeated and improved.

lets get real 2010 is right around the corner we are on the cusp of video game technology. and yall have the nerve to throw a weak puzzle game in here that takes away from this truely revolutioary game. Er... not sure in what context you're talking about 2010 and technology, but I found the way the puzzles are included and solved to be innovative and interesting, in terms of concept and design.

I disagree.

The subject 16 puzzles were AWESOME.

they're cool. kinda remind me of the arkham asylum archives hidden throughout the batman game. a story within a story.

(spoilers?) the 5th glyph puzzle drove me nuts tryin to figure it out. kept thinking it had to do with religious figures but, it all boils down to the text in <span class="ev_code_RED">RED</span>

Those puzzles were very interesting. If you haven't finished AC1 then you don't know what those glyphs are for. Those are the symbols that puzzled everyone at the end of AC1.
I mean what do you expect, you're playing a history based game involving high-end technology.

I loved them! Glyph 20 bugged me for a little while what with the <span class="ev_code_white">no number wheel</span> but then I figured it out and thought 'of course! It's so simple!'

I like the glyphs and think that the puzzles are fun. I do like to think on occasion though so that may be the difference.

Including the Glyphs was probably one of the best things that happened in the entire game.

Not only were they challenging, but also extremely rewarding, interesting and not to mention a huge source of information on the over-arching storyline.

I feel sorry for you if you can't understand the importance of the Glyphs.

Figured with a name like OldSckoolGamer you'd like the throwback. (j/k... sort of)

My only wish would have been for there to be more glyphs to find, to extend the Truth video, and make them even harder. I loved finding those hidden texts within the pictures. Great way to set conspiracy and intrigue.

the glyphs are totally awesome!

it really f**ks with your mind, the whole conspiracy and theories behind them all with such huge figures in history wielding PoE's. They really make you think.If you pay attention to the secrets lying within the puzzles it all fits so well into the deep story-line of the game.

The Truth will be revealed if only one would know where to LOOK.

The glyph puzzles are AMAZING! Also how can you call them weak, but cant seem to figure them out? All of the puzzles are at the right difficulty level with one or two of them making you put alittle more thought into them than the others.

UBISOFT the puzzles are great and I want to see mroe of them in AC3!

Agreed, the glyph puzzles were amazing.

Doing them always sent chills down my spine, with Subjet 16's talking and with all those sound effects during the puzzles.. wow. These NEED to be in AC3 too, I demand for it!
