Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
"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.
BE A LEGEND – Take Ezio, now a legendary Assassin, on a new adventure with 15+ hours of story-driven single-player gameplay.
LEAD AND CONTROL A LEGENDARY BROTHERHOOD – Recruit and customize your own guild. Train and level up assassins and command them to aid you in your quest.
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.
WIN THE HEART OF A CITY – Use your hard-won currency to revitalize the crumbling capitol city. Rally the citizens to your cause and unlock extra factions and missions.
AWARD-WINNING MULTIPLAYER – Choose from multiple authentic character classes, each with their own signature weapons and killing moves. With richly detailed maps and a wide variety of unique multiplayer modes, you’ll never fight the same way twice.
Probably my favourite in the seriesGmen | Jan. 6, 2014 | See all Gmen's reviews »
The Assassin’s Creed series has been with us now for more than six years, with a new title arriving each year. But for me, Brotherhood was about the best – it was certainly the last one I have bothered with so far.
You play as Ezio from Assassin’s Creed II, and a lot of what made said game good was improved upon here. You can upgrade your weapons and receive new inventions from an old friend (you should recognise him!) to help give you an edge in combat and in other areas.
About the best feature in Brotherhood is being able to train new assassin recruits and send them on assignments, which will gain them experience and skill points which you can use to upgrade their abilities.
You can buy properties in the city to generate income, which in turn will aid you in being able to acquire more powerful weapons and items. I find there’s definitely more interaction with the world around you, and your actions matter more than ever. Playing as Ezio makes you feel like a powerful mafia boss, which essentially, he is – but he isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Think of this as GTA: Vice City, but with horses instead of cars.
Combat and manoeuvring your character about is still a weak point here as it had been with every AC game before it. Graphically Brotherhood doesn’t look a hell of a lot different from either Assassin’s Creed or Assassin’s Creed II. A lovely score composed by one of the masters, Jesper Kyd, never fails to disappoint and is one of the highlights of this title.
Not as good as I'd hoped.Thousandforms | Dec. 2, 2013 | See all Thousandforms's reviews »
I'm new to assassins creed and I spent a good while looking at which one I should start with without trading off graphics etc.
I chose this one and well really I'm kinda disappointed by it.
Firstly: The number of cut scenes is truely annoying, sometimes inbetween cut-scenes you may only have to do one thing: 'press any button'-why?! and sometimes you just walk one more pace and it's yet another cut scene...
secondly: puzzle-esk things, at the beginning, the part in modern-time, the puzzles are repetative and boring.. they lacked inspiration, or action.
Thirdly: I was dissapointed to find out that all of those cool fight scenes- well theres only really one 'fight' button.. other than the dodge and grab, it's just x for attack and LT +X for counter attack.. I was just hoping for more..
Finally: My version is on uplay: I cant say whether this one is or not as I don't think I bought it from this site, but uplay sucks, it takes forever to download things, update, etc. slooow.
I havent given up on it yet, so I'll give it 40something... At least running across roofs is fun.....!
My Favourite So FarStuman31 | Nov. 25, 2013 | See all Stuman31's reviews »
Of the Assassin's Creeds I have played, I would say this one has been my favourite. Going into it i actually thought it was just going to be glorified DLC, but it is an entire game to itself. There are a few new additions (like having the ability to call on other assassins) that do develop this game past the previous one. Though this does really improve in no way graphically to the series, and is much more of a sideways step it is a lot of fun. However, like all the Assassins Creed games, you get used to a very similar game play. Which makes playing the games back to back rather dull. But if you were only going to play one Assassins Creed game, this is the one id pick
Assassin, lots of them...Gojko | Oct. 11, 2013 | See all Gojko's reviews »
This is the third part of the game... ok not third, but part that is going between second and third. Encio is back with new task, better graphic, but also with mod for multiplayer game. You get new responsibilities, but also opportunities. You have to spend time training recruits, but also you can call the tasks companions for help.
Graphic is better in this part, it's much more smoother than in others.
Sound... what sound... ah that sound, I was thinking is nature around me.
Recommendation for all players.
A Sequel Which Is Only To Get More Moneylagendofdoom | Sept. 28, 2013 | See all lagendofdoom's reviews »
I would call this game "Assassin's Creed 2.5", they did add a couple of improvement but still it is an Assassin's Creed 2 which continues its story and only for the storyline its worth to play this game.... I was already bored in the middle of Assassin's Creed 2 so in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood a literally played out of boredom and even the story was not enough for me to enjoy this game... it was really repetitive in so many ways that I had to ask a friend to help me complete this game.
