I am a HUGE AC ok I played the first game and the combat was clunky, second game introduced the hidden blades as an acctual weapon, but still kinda clunky. Now in ACB combat is as fluid as water. I love to run up to guards and beat them to death, with my bare hands(and feet now.)Countering is also an avid part of my combat arsenal and the gun can be used to combo the sword now. Ubisoft you made one hell of a game I tip my hat to you.

Countering a guard using a spear, grabbing the spear from him, tossing it back into him is one of the most greatest feelings you can have lol

I LOVE the new combat system. The sword and the gun is my favorite. stab and shot their head in the end.

Agreed. To be honest I found combat in AC2 pretty awesome and loved fighting every chance I got, so you can only imagine how amazed I am now. And there is still so many options and weapons to try. Btw, any of you know what's up with using broom to fight?? Is it possible, where to find it??

I've heard about the combat! It seems like it IS so much improved and more offensive, as the reviewers have said and also I've heard this from friends.

I've tried to ask, but HOW exactly does combat work in AC Brotherhood (example: what buttons do you press and what do they do?). I played AC 2 and liked the combat, but you couldn't really go on the offensive and now it seems to be remedied (thank you Ubi!!!).

And oh, is the combat harder...? From the developer diaries, Ubisoft described the guards as being far more aggressive than before. Is this true?

Thanks guys and good to see a post about the combat! one thing I loved about AC 2 but it seems SO SO much improved! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

actually yes the gaurds way more agressive they attack a lot more and give you more chances to disarm/counter it all depends on what your preference.

I LOVE the combat system! I thought AC2's was amazing, but this is even more so. I especially like the new way they added the gun as like a side weapon to the sword. The counters involved with that are FREAKING SWEET.

It's super fun cutting guards down with the new fighting system. Although they do get more hits which does make me avoid fights more xD
