To Run or To Hide?
In AC you are very often faced with the choice of either running or hiding when being pursued (either works to a certain degree). What amused me while getting used to the setting and controls while still in Assassin-ville was the fact that although the game told you jumping into a haysack will help you keep low, whenever you did it around a bot, they commented along the lines of "What a strange thing to do.." or "What in the world?"
Nevermind Assassin-ville folks should be used to novices doing this, still.. Subtle, Altair. Very subtle.
