"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

Brotherhood is an astounding game and a worthy sequel to the majesty of ACII. The recruitment and team assassinations are really fun and I wish they'd been improved upon in later entries. The story is pretty good and the characters are great, especially Ezio and Da Vinci. It's basically more of ACII with less of a story and more focus on combat, which is done superbly.

If I compare with other Assassin's this can be considered the weakest, yet he was one of the best games of his time, of course the game has limitations, but not without an extremely interesting history and environment. There are some things that bother me much, I think I can quote the gameplay, for many times it becomes frustrating, with grotesque mistakes. I thought the graphics are acceptable, but left to be desired on the soundtrack that is almost absent and with bad songs. Another game of the problem is that the campaign seems to be very repetitive, at least for me, like a copy of the previous games. For those who would like to play the Assassins Creed series this game is not mandatory but is very interesting if played, and i certainly recommend this game for the players, I think that despite the errors you can have great fun.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is the first game in the series that you have support from other assassins during your gameplay. The story behind this game is still one of the best of the series. The gameplay is basically the same from the other games, but now with different features, such as weapons and different kinds of missions. Graphics are still very good but the soundtrack of the game could have been better. I would recommend this to all the fans of Assassin's Creed games, especially those who have already played or finished the previous one, because this has a new and unique experience that the fans would love to try!

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is an offshoot game in the franchise, one that fills in the gaps between ACII and III, but is considered to be more "extra" information not required to enjoy the main games. Even so, this is surprisingly a very strong entry in the franchise. Brotherhood continues to follow the story of Ezio, the protagonist from ACII. The city of Rome modeled in this game is magnificent, and a top setting for all the games in the series. Gameplay is fluid, missions well designed, and the game feels tighter from a narrative standpoint compared to the second game. The most interesting aspect in this game is the ability to add new assassin recruits for their own missions, or to assist you in yours. Personally, I enjoyed Brotherhood more than the other games in several ways. Well worth the time and playthrough for Assassins Creed fans.

Everyone's heard of Ubisoft's flagship franchise, and knows whether they like it. If you like Assassin's Creed, you'll love this, and if you don't, I urge you to try this game. It's by far the best in franchise, and is overall a great game. The Renaissance setting is fun, and it pairs well with the mechanics. Not to mention one of my favorite soundtracks from last generation (it's no Bastion, but it's good). It is buggy, however, and the Uplay DRM is maddeningly intrusive to your game. Sometimes the game feels bloated, especially with the poorly written "outside the Animus" story, but most of the extra fluff is relatively optional. Overall, it's a well made game that's worth your time and money, but not much more.
