I remember reading in a article that each weapon will have a special move. One screen shot I saw had Ezio swinging a spear/halberd in front of himself in a wide arc hitting 4 guards. I assumed this is one of these moves. I was wondering if anyone could has seen other pictures that have special moves, or could think of a move for a weapon.

maybe decapitation for a sword. or an un-counterable(yes that is a word) swing. maybe a really big swing with a hammer.

ya, like the hidden blade is the double stab, the axe was goin into the dudes shoulder and then pushing him like from the gameplay, I just hope they make sorta more than one for each weapon so it doesn't become repetitive

I think these 'special moves' can be activated by holding down the 'attack button', if I recall correctly. I'm guessing to make things harder these attacks will be a lot slower and the AI will want to seize the opportunity to strike at the gap in your defence. I think that with the dagger/sword you'll probably deliver a series of fast attacks in quick succesion, possibly striking multiple targets. I'm guessing that with the axe you'll deliver a powerful downward strike that will be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to block (which is one of the main reasons why battle axes were used, since they could cut through pretty much anything a soldier was carrying/wearing). I'd like to see Ezio throw dirt into his enemies eyes.

In this vid you see an other move with the axe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g89kZqeyH8g on 4:05. In this vid you can also see the double hidden blade kill fail on 2:00 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
