Just mash on the attack button, and Altaïr should start swinging his sword. Occasionally you'll see one of the swarming guards fall over dead, then another a little while later. There doesn't really seem to be a method to the madness. Just make sure you keep moving otherwise they'll trip your horse.

This is actually something I've started doing a lot of recently, and it's pretty fun, albeit fairly lame. When I see a group of 9 or so Crusaders/Saracens on patrol, I draw my sword, come up behind them, and just start swinging. Sometimes you can control which side of the horse he swings on, but sometimes it doesn't quite understand. And I ride the horse around them a couple times, continually taking swings at whoever's left. Usually, guards die in 1/2 the swings it would normally take.

Like I said, a bit lame, but pretty funny.

Anyways.. Remember that only your Longsword can be drawn while you're on the horse. The moment you mount it, the longsword is automatically selected, and the other options greyed-out. Select it again, and you can draw it without swinging it. Then just use the attack button and go to town.

that's what i usually do -- i like to practice the short blade (the things it does to a guard's insides...)

it does for me. try lowering the graphic settings in the game -- it's responsible for most sound problems i found

Altairego, use the edit button to avoid double/triple/quadruple posting, and welcome to the forums http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


As for horseback, I find it slightly difficult to hit guards, so I just charge towards them and knock them over http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Ten guys I can take without dying when I'm naked, haven't slept in four and half days, blindfolded, left arm cut off, haven't eaten in two months, drank in a few nights and backwards to the TV.
