Continuing Ezio's story.Jericho417 | Aug. 9, 2014 | See all Jericho417's reviews »
I really enjoyed Assassin's Creed 2 and there is enough content in Brotherhood to justify an entire game for it. It does feel a bit short, but we've seen shorter games with far less to offer. The detail in this game is much like AC2, absolutely fantastic. Scenery is beautiful and great to traverse. History notes are enjoyable to read. Combat is polished and effective, though countering constantly is a bit boring. The added mechanic of training and managing other assassins was quite interesting. One complaint I have about Brotherhood is that, while it's a fine port, why do I get 360 button prompts on PC? I mean, yes, the game is more suited for a controller, but I prefer keyboard and mouse. Everything else was fine for the PC port. Graphic options were nice and it met my expectations.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood continues the story of badass Italian Ezio Auditore de Firenze (and they said I had a long name). I feeling a bit tired so I will keep this review short (GASP!).
AC:B's story picks up exactly where AC2 ends off, so it is recommended that you play atleast AC2 before this (or watch the walkthroughs, whatever). The story is very great, and this game contains tons of content. Many missions are kind of repetitive, but the missions itself are cool, and truly makes you feel like a master assassin. The parkour system is meh, and the combat is where it really shines. The fact that you can take on multiple (?) people and find yourself standing amongst the bodies of several Templars is satisfying. The new added Brotherhood system is great, and really feels like you are the head of a secret organization whose purpose is to gain the artifacts of Eden before the Templars do and go out throughout the world finding them. The addition of Multiplayer is where I lost most of my hours, and surprisingly (at the time), it was fricken awesome.
All in all AC:B is a must have for AC and Ezio fans. It holds up the legacy beautifully, improving on little areas of single-player and multiplayer. It is a great addition to the franchise, and I believe that you won't be dissapointed.
A good continuation.Xgoesrawr | Jan. 28, 2014 | See all Xgoesrawr's reviews »
Assassins Creed Brotherhood continues the story of Ezio and starts pretty much exactly where Assassins Creed 2 ends.
In this game you can recruit citizens into assassins. This means you can summon them to assist in combat; or you can send them off on missions. They also added kill streaks which improved combat.
The length of this game is shorter than AC2.
I recommend this only if you've played the two games before it.
