This was the first Assassin's Creed game I played, which hooked me on the series completely! Since then I bought and played through Assassin's Creed 2, Assassin's Creed Revelations, and finally the original Assassin's Creed game. Brotherhood has a special place in my heart since it was my first experience of the series, but after playing through them all it remains only my second favourite - behind AC2. The game involves climbing and free-running across renaissance Italy with a combination of speed and stealth, where you must assassinate targets to follow the increasingly complex storyline. Even after playing most games in the series, the plot still seems unnecessarily complicated and often slows the gameplay as you have to occasionally play through the 'modern day' missions. Overall, it's more of the same Assassin's Creed goodness - it's hardly an improvement on AC2 but as a standalone game it's fantastic.
