running? the memory starts on out on a carriage, then you're floating in a parchute for awhile(with the optional objective of killing 20 guards) then you're at the part i complained about in my above post, which you haven't helped with in the slighest. Please dont bother posting, if you aren't actually going to help.
hmmn i've been trying to punch him but Ezio always just flails about instead. As for countering... havent seen any prompts for it. of course having 2 health points means i die in 2 stabs roughly.....ugh guess i'll keep trying
No need to be rude, I don't have the chapter names memorized and I didn't recognize what you were talking about from your description. As Charpanda says, you just punch and counter. Don't spam punch, get a few in then wait for the counter.
found some time to try again today. holding r1 seems to let me at least try to punch him. now i find i die every time with him at 1 point of health left. i wish they wouldnt put stupid parts like this in the game.
