Making the Jump
Many people have had a hard time with the part when playing as Altair for a brief section of the game. There is one jump where you, on a balcony, must jump up to a wooden post and use that to get to the end of the section, but due to the new free running techniques and system, the jump that was fairly easy in AC1 is now fairly difficult to make, sometimes taking people five minutes or more to make. Here's a simple way to do it:
When you get to the top, move Altair to the center of the balcony while balancing on the low wall. Now, face the wooden platform while still on said wall, hold Right Trigger, and tap A. This will make Altair jump and grab the post. If he doesn't grab it, try holding B right after jumping. This should get you up to the top no problem.
Hope this helps.
