"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

More Ezio = Awesome!!!chataolauj | Jan. 23, 2014 | See all chataolauj's reviews »
This game follows the events after the end of part 2, so if you haven't played part 2 then I would really recommend you do that before buying this game. Brotherhood brings in a some new elements that makes the game much more fun than the previous two titles. In brotherhood, you're allowed to recruit up to ten people to become assassin's and make them go on missions to earn experience; so that's a pretty neat thing about this game. Ezio has also changed a lot since part 2 as well in this one. Every gamer should buy this game because it's just that awesome. It's a must have and you definitely can't pass on it.

Of all the Assassin's Creed games (and there's a lot of them now!), AC: Brotherhood is probably my favorite of the bunch. It picks up the story of Ezio where AC2 left off, so you probably should play that one before picking up this game, but it's not 100% necessary. The story is well-done, if not a bit convoluted, but more importantly, the game builds upon the previous versions of AC and refines the little things, turning it into a masterpiece. Ezio handles beautifully, and there's just so much that you can do in this really busy world. The sound is great, the graphics are stunning, and Rome just comes alive as a city. I haven't tried the multiplayer, but it has it, so if that's your thing, it's an added bonus.
If you're looking for a fun open-world-ish game where you can platform around an amazing city and sneak up on people and rob/kill them in creative ways, then this is the game for you.

A great story and great gameplay come together here. The Ezio trilogy is a lot of fun and this was my favorite of the AC series. The sidequests are fun, taking over templar areas are a great new idea, the combat gets a lot of add-ons to make it great, and as with any Assassin's Creed game, the story is the big draw here.
It manages to remain pretty historically accurate for a fictional game featuring the Borgias. Some liberties are taken to tell a better story, but it's probably not too far from the truth. The ending is much more satisfying than the first 2 games also.
Highly recommended if you like action platformers.
