"An exhilarating adventure teeming with unique things to see and do- and most importantly, people to stab." - PCGamer
"Its beautiful vision of 15th-century Rome is just one of many reasons to get lost in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood." - GameSpot
Live and breathe as Ezio, a legendary Master Assassin, in his enduring struggle against the powerful Templar Order. He must journey into Italy’s greatest city, Rome, center of power, greed and corruption to strike at the heart of the enemy.
Defeating the corrupt tyrants entrenched there will require not only strength, but leadership, as Ezio commands an entire Brotherhood who will rally to his side. Only by working together can the Assassins defeat their mortal enemies.
And for the first time, introducing an award-winning multiplayer layer that allows you to choose from a wide range of unique characters, each with their own signature weapons and assassination techniques, and match your skills against other players from around the world.
It’s time to join the Brotherhood.
The Digital Deluxe Edition Includes:
2 Exclusive Single-Player Maps: The Trajan Market & The Aqueduct
2 Multiplayer Characters: The Officer - Death's Finest Ally: Few have seen him. Even fewer have lived to tell about it. Fear is his friend, and Death is his ally. The Harlequin - The Walking Nightmare: Behind the gaudy costume and twisted smile lies the soul of a merciless Assassin.
1 Ezio Skin
Helmschmied Drachen Armor: Fashioned by the Helmschmied Armory in 1489, only a few sets were completed due to the weight of the metal. Very few men proved strong enough to wear it.

After amazing Assassin's Creed 2 we get the Brotherhood. Changing charming Venice for Rome. I personally didn't like it at first. Too much countryside locations, not enough roaming through city. But after a time I came to love Brotherhood. It expands AC potential. You get to lead a whole guild. Hiring new assassins, sending them on missions that fill the guild's coffers.
The graphics and music are like in AC 2, just a bit more refined when it comes to graphics.
And what's more important, again you are thrown headfirst into amazingly detailed world set in our world's history with characters who actually lived there and then. That's one of the reasons I love AC series. Historical referrences.
To sum up - more AC 2, more Ezzio, more possibilities(managing assassin's guild!). A worthy successor of AC 2.

Family and old friends will remember events that will rock the foundations of Ezio and force him to return to different sites to meet parts of his past. All this always connect with Desmond, who have ghostly encounters with his ancestor and go assassin perfecting their techniques while escaping from those who persecute you. With the help of Lucy and her team, which will attempt to maintain stable, the protagonist of this have to struggle to keep track of any of the tracks that left him in a past very lejano.Para end the setting, include the database system, which will give us very detailed information about the places we visit for the first time. Once a first walk through the facilities it will remain in the database for future visits. The curious will enjoy many data from both sites and of institutions or individuals that marked a before and after in the Italian Renaissance. Graphic work than expected Beyond the work of documentation and reproduction of each city or town is the graphics performance and reproduction of textures. Each character, Ezio and Desmond as the main figures, has a very broad level of detail. The different sites also provide incredible performance that will make you enjoy much of a game with a lot of material to be cut. Ideally this PC version is to play with a team whose performance allows execution of the title with the maximum benefits. Those without a machine so powerful lower resolutions can enjoy a very high degree of configurability, which will launch the game on medium power machines. Despite the clear loss of quality, the game is still a great title that hides great things. Another point of graphics performance are the different kinematics. As if it were a movie, Assassin's Creed offers introductory scenes assignments and important events in great quality. The correction in the lip when different dialogues and actions in the video is a great point to take into account in this regard. A good job for a deserved title In the introduction we mentioned the importance of knowing and seeing renewed past mistakes. Assassin's been known not only see but also has acted to avoid the latter title. From the repetition of missions of the first game there is no trace and improving the graphics technique is also spectacular. The different movements have increased and secondary level is another thing entirely. Stocks and options when buying and improving armor and weapons also increase allowing the player a good interaction and customization. Shopkeepers who appeared in the other game available to us many more goods. Each change has been to improve a game that already said ways in their marketing. The arrival of The Brotherhood is a good point and followed for the series, we will ally with the Countess of Forli, Caterina Sforza, and continue a relentless struggle against the Borgia family. A new search is open to us and we will be the fastest to find out what it is. A new mystery turns to talk of a lost civilization and magical place that nobody had ever heard.
Not just a multiplayer featureAntix | Jan. 23, 2013 | See all Antix's reviews »
What originally seemed like a tacked on multiplayer expansion to the franchise is actually a really good single player entry in the Assassin's Creed series... and a tacked on multiplayer expansion.
It's a direct sequel, starting at the exact point that the second game ended at but it will quickly have you starting all over again, and this time instead of working mostly for your personal goals, you'll do it to improve the Assassin brotherhood and achieve your goals through that. You'll be transported to Rome and spend the vast majority of the game there, as opposed to switching between a number a cities like in the previous games. You'll have to liberate sectors of the city from Borgia control and after that you'll be able to renovate shops and landmarks. It's essentially the villa minigame in AC2 but vastly expanded. The PC version exclusively has an online investment system as well but it's not worth the trouble since you'll be rolling in money anyway. After you've liberated an area, you also get to recruit an assassin trainee under you. You can send them on missions via a menu or have them join you in-game to help with fights. They level up and eventually become stronger, but the feature is mostly optional in case you don't want the game to become even easier. Another new mechanic are the optional objectives in missions. Basically these are challenges that you can complete if you want e.g. not getting detected during a mission, but completing them has no worthwile rewards. They can still add some spice to the gameplay when you feel like doing them but unfortunately missing the objective means you have to restart the whole memory, no checkpoints allowed.
The core combat system also changed. The open conflicts used to be all about waiting for counter opportunities while the rest of the combat features were all but superficial. Now you don't have to wait and can just rhythmically continue slaughtering your enemies after your first kill. This doesn't make the basic and easy combat better, but at least it's a little less boring since battles will be shorter so it's a welcome addition.
Aside from that, it's mostly the same thing you have seen in the second game, with a wealth of side activities you've come to expect. It brings a somewhat fresh approach with new elements and some improvements, however I still prefer Assassin's Creed 2 overall, but only by a hair. Mostly because you are not restricted to a single city. Still, if you liked AC2, this is also a must have and they're both fantastic.

The next part of the famous series tells of a challenge two fractions: Assassins and Templars. Return to the form of the Italian assassin Ezio, who moves to Rome to face the next opponent. The Brotherhood made a lot of additions and improvements, including a simple management system and the ability to summon guild to help fellows. The game presents a huge world full of side quests and different challenges, which is amazing. Awesome game, worth buying.
Assassin's Creed 2, with small refinementsCynaris | July 20, 2012 | See all Cynaris's reviews »
Brotherhood is a lot like Assassin's Creed 2, the setting remains, the soundtrack is very similar, and the gameplay and variety hasn't changed much. However it does introduce 2 major things. You have your own Brotherhood where you train Assassin's by sending them on missions. They improve, and will help you whenever you call for their aid. It is a fine and well executed addition. The second one is your Villa. You are now taking over a small town, bringing shops back to life, improving your own residence, and increasing your income. It doesn't have much effect in the end, as you'll drown in money, but it is a nice addition nonetheless. The game is still thoroughly enjoyable, and recommended to play.
Multiplayer is also an option, with surprisingly unique and well working modes.
