I need help with the first Assassin's Creed

#1 Posted by Mike512 (212 posts) -

After you kill the first three guys they give you the next three to kill and they're all in different cities. It says in each one I've got 0/6 investigations complete and I need to finish three investigations to unlock assassination memory. It says to climb the view points and I've climbed them all and nothing is happening and there is nothing for me to do. Does anyone know what the hell I need to do to continue?

Did you do the Leap of Faith off of them? Or just climb on them?

I climb them, synced and then did the leap of faith.

You're saying that you have climbed and synced and the investigation mission icons aren't showing up? So the game is stuck, waiting for you to do what you've already done? 
 
Or are the investigation missions available for you to begin doing them and you, apparently, are unaware that they're there?

Well then.... condolences! 
 
Try loading an earlier memory (save) or.. I dunno, I'm not familiar with consoles and their save files and installations and whatnot.

I think the problem is that you're still in the first district in each city. Go to the new districts, they should be blurred on your map.

This. I just beat this game yesterday. Just put a marker in your GPS to a blurred part of the city and go explore the rooftops until you find view points. The new investigations and assassinations are always in the unexplored parts of each city that you previously didn't have access to.

This. Anyway- how'd you like it? I played it for the first time last year, and didn't think it was nearly as terrible as everyone made it out to be- in fact, I liked it quite a bit. Sure the missions are repetitive, but I loved the climbing, combat, filling up the whole map, collecting shit... it was pretty rad.

Thanks guys. It's probably just the blurred out areas I need to find.

Me personally, I'm not really a fan of it. I'm interested to know where the story is going in the present but the story in the past doesn't really have much going for it. I think the platforming is good but the sword fighting kinda sucks. I heard the second one is better so when I beat this I'll give that a try.

Yep. ACII really fixes just about everything that was wrong with AC, even if you love AC (which I did).

climb all of the view points. i know that feeling i had that problem, until i figured the view points.

#13 Posted by Mike512 (212 posts) -

Yeah so I just needed to explore the areas around the blurred out sections like someone mentioned and I got to the other parts. Thanks again everyone.

It was a great game and I really enjoyed the story. Sure there were a few things with the climbing and such that could be refined but overall it was awesome. I picked up ACII for cheap as well. Can't wait to play it and mostly will pick up the rest of the series.
