Assassin's Creed II Guide - Walkthrough


Meet Lucy in the complex downstairs to test your skills. You just have to hit the four sensors to complete the training. Two of the sensors are on the ground floor, and the other two are on the catwalks above. Run to either side of the warehouse, press the buttons there, and then climb the stack of boxes to reach the catwalk. Activate the sensors on both catwalks and then return to Lucy.

Exit the complex to trigger a memory sequence. Sprint forward to spot a woman; start after her when she takes off. Just keep up with her as she moves through the city. Activate Eagle Vision if you lose track of her. When she enters the tower, jump onto the railing and grab hold of the ridge along the base of the tower. Climb up to the balcony railing and then jump up and grab hold of the wooden post. Continue climbing up to the top of the tower and hit the marker there to trigger a cutscene.

Back in Acre?

After the cutscene, approach the Animus and press any button when you're ready to continue.

All I did was jump the wall and did a side jump and got right on the first try. Hope that helps

You have to be joking... I've launched off that tower so many times trying to get up on that piece of wood... it aint funny. Too much drama ... I'm sick of buying games that you get through to a certain part & then the frustration of not being able to continue makes ya want to toss it in the bin.

If you change your view to first person, it makes it much easier to grab hold of the wood.

I stood on the edge of the balcony under the lamp, facing the right, and jumped up. It was completely accidental and the only thing that worked for me.

The trick when you get stuck on the balcony is to get up onto the balcony so you're facing the door and the wooden post is over you. From there, you need to jump up (just up did the trick for me - no forward movement) and Desmond Miles (who is Altair in that cutscene) will automatically grab the wooden post. Then you just climb up.

I hope this helps you.

Yeah ... I got stuck but I just stood off to the side a lil and kept jumping and pressing both CIRCLE and SQUARE and it eventually let me clim the post ... Not sure if that's wat did the trick but your welcome to give it a shot

I thought this was a great game til this point. Now ive been stuck on this balcomy for a few days imabout to throw this game out the window. BTW i have consulted 3 online walk throughs. The only thing i learned was that i wasnt the only ome who couldnt climb this stupid tower in the dream

There is a lamp on the end of the wooden post, if you jump from one side of balcony to other enough times the lamp will swing off the post allowing altair to climb up onto it.

My game will also only let me get to the balcony. I cant grab onto the wooden post to climb higher. Any suggestions? Because until I do this then I cannot carry on with the remainder of the game...
