View Full Version : Not having fun, please help?

11-27-2009, 06:51 PM
The game has been very slow and I really got upset having to chase up building to get feathers for a stupid kid.

Then I saved out a lot of money and bought a pouch to stope some healing potions...seemed like a good idea.

Kept getting attacked and beating up people and they just rolled on the ground after...could not buy anything usable in stores.

Then I get my sword and can and feel a smidge better until it gets knocked out of my hand and I have to run away like a sissy.

Finally I go to try and heal myself and I can't use any of the potions I stored in my belt I bought for 6000!

How do you drink potions to heal yourself. Not seeing anything fun about this game but want to see if it gets any less idiotic.

It all depends on how you play it. If you're like my brother who goes on a rampage like a psychopath, killing everyone who stands in his way (including civvies) you're going to get attacked. (duh) and if you don't have the means to defend yourself you might get killed too (duh)

You don't have to collect the feathers if you don't want to. It's all choice my friend.

Idiotic? I'm usually not the one to say this, but it sounds like the problem is you. If you can't figure out how to drink potions, that's not ACII's fault, dude. And if you don't like the whole "climbing up buildings" thing to reach an objective, then this isn't the game for you.
And yeah, you get another sword a bit later. This game is narrative-driven, so the first little bit isn't going to have you controlling some powerhouse mass murderer. If you want a game where you can just tear [stuff] up, this probably isn't the game for you, either.

ur very far away from the end of the game, if you really get mad for just collecting 3 feathers in 2 minutes than i really dont know what to tell you. its less than 2 minutes out of your life

go buy madworld


if you want ridiculous action

Try reading the manual and pay attention to the tips that show up on the left of your screen...

You're not that silly. It is kinda slow in the beginning, but after a while it does get more fun. I know I would rather have skipped the beginning stuff, but they really are kind of like tutorials for what you're going to do later in the game. To heal yourself, press the left button on the d pad. You can also hit LB to see all your armed weapons, and to arm one you move the right joystick around (this is for xbox 360, i don't have a psp). Also, you don't really get a sword until the storyline takes you out of Florence. If you pay attention to the hints, you can really do some cool stuff.

Agree with Edengoth, you didn't even get out of Florence, and i can already tell you are absolutely horrible at this game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Two things to the OP: First off, that kid is your brother and the story means for you to care about your family, as most people do...secondly you should relax and follow the main quests until you start to see more of the game, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. If that doesn't happen, buy/go play Gears of War(preferably Gears 2) if you really want some fun and simple action and fighting gameplay without excess thought or story involved.

P.S. I am a HUGE fan of both games, and both are a definite must play, in my opinion.

You need to chill.


the kid is patrucio or something he dies if it makes you feel better.

for PS3 you press R2 which brings up quick select, and used the analog sticks to choose what you want to use (medicine is on the left)

And save your money for some cool stuff

always check your minimap for stuff, it gets better

Dude... you're still in the tutorial section of the game... have patience.

12-01-2009, 01:31 PM
i thought the tutorial was pretty good, eased you slowly into the story and the game

Hello and welcome to the Forums http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
I'm not sure what system you're playing on but on the 360 to heal yourself you press the directional pad left. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
Like the others have said this isn't exactly a hack and slash game and it requires stealth. The longer you play the more skills you aquire to be able to defeat harder enemies. Hang in there. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

On the PS3 to use the health potions press Left on the directional pad.

Also, if you don't want to emtpy all the treasure chests or collect the feathers - don't. It will speed things up tremendously.

try changing up combat a little. hand to hand, using the hidden blades, throwing multiple knives at once, larger two handed weapons, there is a plenty to experiment with. it can get boring very quickly if you just use one weapon type. hire some fighters to fight along with you, get a group of six of them and just go guard hunting!
