Memory Block 1
Okay, after learning of the sci-fi twist in this game, just watch the events that unfold and do as you're told until you are put in a hazy looking place. Just run forward and then the tutorial will start. Listen closely and then you will enter a sequence where you learn the controls. Press the head button and look at each group of people around you. Then walk forward while pressing the "gently push" button to walk through the jar-people. Then press the button that changes your profile (which changes what the buttons on the HUD do). You will notice the low profile actions are acceptable, while the high profile actions will get you into trouble.
Next will be a simple push, so go into high profile and grab the dude, then toss him. Then you will sprint, which you must run off as soon as you can to beat the other guy. Next you will go kill a guy, so do it. Run into the guy that come along, go up the ladder, and then hide in the little garden.
After learning of the things you can hide in, just hold the blend button down and walk past the bad guys. Then you learn of a new ability called Eagle Vision. Then you learn of three rules: 1. Leave innocent people alone, 2. Be discreet, 3. Don't jeopordize the clan. Then just wait for the first level to get rolling.
When you see a glitch, press a button to change perspective (you know, because it's suppose to be you, you wouldn't normally have memories from others, that is why it's a glitch). Move forward and when you hit the gap press and hold the two buttons and simple press forward to jump along the beams. Do this again and then up the ladder.
*NOTE: Glitches are when the screen kinda messes up, like static. You only get a few moments after to press any button. I won't point out every glitch, so you will either recognize the static yourself, or you will watch all the cutscenes from boring angles.*
Do a low profile kill and then move to the ledge for a bit of a scene. After, just use the ladders to hit the floor and walk over to the other guys. Then lock on and press the assassinate button to get the next scene. On the other side, just hold the two buttons and move up the area by either the left or right pathways. These same buttons are used to run up walls, so do that when near the exit. Then make a slow climb up a wall to fast forward in memory.
*NOTE: Whenever the screen goes to this empty haze area, just wait for the loading to be done. It's essentially a load screen.*
*NOTE: Also, now is good time as any to mention that for those of you with the instruction manual, thumb through it for the comments made by Dr. Vidic. It will possibly confuse, but you can see something is seriously up with this game.*
Status: Return to Al Mualim
After you talk with the man in the village, make your way to the hill toward the castle. So long as you don't mess with the guards or kill anyone along the way, you should just run up the path. You will run into another friend near the gate. Then enter the fort, where weapons are no-no's, and then go inside the builing and up the stairs to meet the dude.
Status: Defend Village
After the chat, run back down the trail to the village. When you finally run into guys with blades, press the lock-on button, then press the high profile button so that the counter move is available. This move is the best way to kill bad guys. Just wait for them to attack, then press the counter to watch a very cool little deathscene. Just repeat this as you make your way back to the start point. Everyone will retreat when you get down to the bottom.
Status: Remove the Templars from Masyaf
Move forward and toward the target on your map. Go up the ladder nearby to reach your friend. Follow him to the top, and then stand on the platform to the right. Then watch.
*NOTE: During this cutscene will be many glitches, so if you see a little static go across the screen, press any button to view the event. Just in case you haven't realized there won't be a sign pointing out a glitch.*
Once you are the center of attention, do the leap of faith and you land safely in some hay. Jump out and go meet the other two. Then come back to find the beam across the gap. Follow these beams, which you can somewhat run across, and then you will hit a wall. You can't just go straight up, so move around and find little points that you can use to climb; you would be surprised what you can climb up and how you can climb. At the tower, go to the right and slash at the wall to shatter the enemy army. Then just watch.
When you have control back, go to the right and into the bathroom to interact and listen to the conversation. Come back out after and wait for the doctor to go away, then you can talk with the girl to learn some backstory, and you can ask a question before going to bed too. Enter the bed room on the right and then go to bed.
When awake, go to the front of the slab and go back to the past.
