When civilians do it, it's just a bug. The guards aren't really freerunning, they're a bit more clumsy than the assassins and can't do all the things they can (like swinging from poles or wall jumps). I do kinda wish they had different animations for the guards when they're following Ezio across a wooden plank, for example, they could be waving their arms more and being nervous. But then they wouldn't be very efficient, making chase scenes really easy and dull.

This. If the guards couldn't free-run, you'd just have to climb up to a roof and stand there until they got bored and left.

It's most off putting when someone of age does it. I laughed at the memory in AC:B where Mario manages to free-run as good as Ezio.

Have you even played ACR? The entire game has "someone of age" freerunning.

Well it's not like Mario. Mario was fat and didn't really have the shape to do that kind of stuff. Ezio however was doing it since he was still young and continued doing it through his life so it wasn't like it was out of the realm for him to do it. I mean, I've seen a seventy-year-old do a handstand and walk on his hands. So nothing is impossible.

Lolwut? Mario sucked at free-running. He was slow as hell.

Would you possibly be talking about the multiplayer? Because you seem vague. And yes the assassins are taught to be stealthy, but there is no rule against free-running. I'd say how you play is up to you, you can either be stealthy and undetected (playing the game right I guess) or you can barge in guns a blazin (not really blazing). In S.P. you will sometimes get D'synced and in the multiplayer for the games, everyone does it because there is a timer and pressure to do stuff fast. So... not sure what your question really was or if you were just trying to make a point, but the game is mean't to be played however you want to play it.

They're referring to how most guards can freerun in the singleplayer, as they attempt to chase an Assassin.

The thing that makes even less sense is that the guards can't swim. Even the Venetian ones. How the shat can you live in Venice and not know how to swim?!

Taken from wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_swimming#Middle_Ages_to_1800

Swimming was initially one of the seven agilities of knights (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knight) during the Middle Ages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_Ages), including swimming with armour (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armour)[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)]. However, as one swam in a state of undress, it became less popular as society became more prudish in the early Modern period (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_Modern_period). For example, in the 16th century, a German (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany) court document in the Vechta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vechta_%28district%29) prohibited naked public swimming by children. Leonardo da Vinci (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci) made early sketches of lifebelts.
