The second video posted October 2, 2007

In the video there's a healthbarish thing at the top left.

I haven't been up to date with A. Creed , but I remember that there wasn't going to be a health bar AT ALL when did this happen?

It's not a health bar, but a "confidence" bar or sumthing. It's pretty much the same, if u have full confidence you can parry easily, but when your block is broken it goes down, and when its drained you can't block and pretty much any attack will be fatal.
But that's only the most probable thing, we will have to play the game to understand how it works.

Also if you search the forum you will find a couple of topics about health bar

Thats not a health bar, It's a stamina bar. Everytime you block with your sword or dagger, it decreases (depends on how hard the other dude hits) and when you run out of stamina, ur going to die.

By the way, if you notice, everytime Altair supposedly get hit, he actually kinda blocks the attacks. So I think one fatal blow is more true then ever.

Patrice also said that combot should be more about hitting swords with swords rather then get your head choped off, and still fighting.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif ya I think its awsome. ive never seen a game that realistic with battle have you? cuz in most games you can shoot/stab most bosses and hs dont really do anything
not a health bar its stamina! meaning you can only block so many moves before you are tired and miss

The thing that's different about the stamina bar from most other health bars is that fact that when your energy or stamina runs out, you actually see Altair's emotion, and his inability to block attacks coming at him.

Of course, because he's a master assassins and everything, that will rarely happen, but hey!!! It's Patrice; he is damn good at Assassins Creed!

Also, you regain stamina each time you kill someone I believe. But I'm not absalutely sure, they may have redone the whole system.

Ok well wouold you rather Altair not get hit and sloppily block and just feel like you got hit like it would in a normal game or would you want Altair to get hit five times int he head before he dies?

They have to give you a shot if it's entirely one hit kill you're not going to be able to play so atleast Altair isn't actually getting hit.... he just sloppily blocks which leaves you at a disadvantage just like it would any other game it's just more realistic... so how does that sound like they f'ed up the game?

Has anyone ever played bushido blade 2? They should have done something like that so you disable parts of the body and this stanima bar

A master Assassin would be good, but not that good. I wanted a really realistic game which by the sound of it it won't be, but I guess no one really knows until it comes out

Well of course if you're in mid attack you're prolly going to have to take the hit in which you'll prolly die....

That's why you have to play it defensive and wait for counter oppurtunies to one-hit them

Complete realism is completely unfair to expect. The thing about realism is it means you're dead. How would you like it if Ubisoft sent you a game where one of two things happened:

A. The first time you die it never lets you get back on. It just loads a black screen or you have to start from the beginning.

B. You died just about every fight except for a few lucky ones and would have to restart from a checkpoint.

If you want realism that's what you will get.

I still don't see what's so unrealistic about having a stamina bar. It's pretty similar to real fighting in my opinion.

Good to see you Hatch http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Do you loose stanima from running or jumping?

I haven't heard anything about it. I would assume yes though.

Muffin, I really don't see your argument. I mean, you want realism, they give you realism, in real life, swords weigh 30-80 pounds, more or less, and it's hard to wield them, and you get tired by aimlessly swinging it. Blocking is a whole different concept, when two swords clash, your hand tremors like nothing else, and you have to be REALLY strong to hold onto the blade.

This makes more sense then "disabling parts of the body" what the hell is that, were not robots, if someone chops of your leg, are you going to keep fighting, I think not; I would kill MY SELF rather then have no legs lol.

Bushido Blade 2 sounds like one of those repetitive button mashers, and if that's the kind of realism you want, you should play another game =)

I'm not trying to be rude, just saying. And you stated: "assassins are good, but they aren't that good". Well obviously they have to be THAT good in order to be assassins don't they, killing guards, assassinating impossible targets, they most likely spent most of their lives training.


And eliteassassin I have no idea what you said LOL, it makes NO SENSE!!!

Oh well before I left I just about gave up on NinjasCreed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif


Oh and no you do not lose stamina from running and jumping as far as I know... that's an entirely different game mechanic there...

LOL I meant the if you get attacked you instantly turn around with barely moving your legs and block it though in the recent ones they all take turns attacking.

You turn around as soon as you counter, or you dont counter at all, so you are cought off guard, and you barely manage to block it with your sword, and it scathes you, and your screwed.

From what we have seen (or atleast I have, dunno if everyone endlessly searchs for video)
You will block everything in front of you and depending on the position of the target/how he swings it will take more or less stamina away from you when you block it. If you're in the middle of a offensive attack that is NOT a counter enemies will stay back and not attack waiting for an opening so they don't^hit^ there buddy (there presumed alive until there struck in the body too(they block also)) but if they attempt a strike at you and you perform an offensive counter (stab foot to chest slash is one we have seen a few times) the enemies will take up position and wail on you because there buddy is obviously down for the count.

There was one video that showed altair sloppily blocking an attack from someone who was behind and to the right slightly and he flipped the blade behind him and deflected it, it seems you CAN block things behind you its just less often/takes more stamina/has to be "in the perfect situation" type dealio.

Seems pretty realistic for someone very skilled in sword fighting.

Edit: yay missing words Edit2: multiple paragraphs, no block of text.
