"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.
MASTER THE POSSIBILITIES: As Ezio, a legendary Master Assassin, experience over 15 hours of single-player gameplay set in the living, breathing, unpredictable city of Rome.

EXPERIENCE A RICH HISTORICAL TAPESTRY: Collaborate with real historical characters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolo Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza.
WIN THE HEART OF A CITY: Use your hard-won currency to revitalize the crumbling capital city. Rally the citizens to your cause and unlock extra factions and missions.
DEPLOY SECRET WEAPONS: Swiftly eliminate your enemies using tools such as poison darts, parachutes, double hidden blades, hidden guns, and an advanced flying machine at your disposal.

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.

This is by far my favorite Assassin's Creed game. The introduction of "The Brotherhood" makes all the difference. In the first game I got bored because it was so repetitive, but being able to lvl up your brotherhood and use them in attacks adds a whole new aspect to this game. It has all the awesome parts of the original game, but expands on them and adds so much more. If you were a fan of the first game, then this one is a must.
