View Full Version : ACB: 1st Sons of Romulus fight

07-29-2011, 08:17 PM
Has anyone ever got 100% sync on this? I know this is supposed to showcase the kill streak feature (a pain in itself with keyboard / mouse), but you're swamped from the 1st second by 13 (albeit weak) attackers and (this early) don't even have access to smoke bombs. Pure chance you don't get hit with missile attack in 1st seconds too, 3+ firing simultaneously (with what, BTW - they're only armed with knives). This is enough to knock off a health square, and any injury (even a 'rested' and recovered health square) costs you the 100% sync.

Must have played this 20 times and now heartily hate the sight of the Sons of Romulus.

OT: Has anyone worked out even the 1st Subject 16 code without resorting to an on-line guide. All are an order of magnitude tougher than even the most inaccessible of the AC2 codes.

Took me so many tries, but it's possible. If you let the cutscene run instead of skipping it, you have a bit of time to back away and keep your opponents in front of you, making it a little bit more manageable. After that, it's mainly paying attention to the flashing opponent health bars and some good old fashioned luck.

Thanks, Thronebrook. Didn't realise you have to press the 'F' key as soon as the cameras roll and then counter-kill all comers (or kill streak 'em if more adventurous / fond of replays) - still took me about four goes though.

Next: Leonardo's bomber....

Would love to, but my fingers get all cramped up when I use game pads...

I really like the mouse-keyboard experience.
