    Hook blade tutorial

    Is there anyway of by-passing this stupid technique. I have tried and tried and as always had problems. Not with my getting the buttons at the right time but with the program. I have always had with this game a huge problem with locking onto a person. The problem is that I cannot unlock from teh subject. No matter what I do by pressing on buttons, triggers ect, it always keeps a lock on to the subject and in a fight that is a bad thing as I can't see what other things are happening. I cannot turn or move to far. The hook blade problem is that I engage with the assassins; I spring over them and then they manage to get flung over me as well with them on the floor. I have spent ages trying to get it right and with no luck. Everytime I play the game this always happens spoiling the enjoyment of playing. Funny, I never have to complain about other games, its always Assassin that has the problems. Its not that I am incapable, I maybe a little slow having to live on over 300mg morphine a day, but as I said no other game I have played gives me grief. Other than that the story is engaging and you want to know more. It is a game I replay all the time, just wish I could get it to work a lot better.

    I have deleted Revelations and reloaded it. Guess what! It has done the same! I run at the assassin and press B. I do the roll over but then take the assassin with me and throw them! I think I am just going to have to call it a day and sell the disk. Shame as I love the story. So it goodbye to poor software. Thing is I have done it several times before and I can't think what is different this time around!

    It's not the game. It's you.

    Pressing "B" while running towards an enemy will do a "hook and throw". (which is a useful tool to leave an enemy vulnerable for a ground assassination/quick kill)

    HOLDING DOWN "B" while running towards an enemy will perform a "hook and run". (which is a useful tool to quickly pass through an enemy while trying to escape)

    I suggest you to pay more attention at the tutorials. Go finish the game now...

    I have deleted the game on PC and now have bought the game on Xbox. I have only just bought the xbox and I am hoping I won't have the problems I have with the PC. I did everything that you said and still have problems, so will sell the PC version and get on with the Xbox
