Assassins Creed: Brotherhood
1 October 2011
Summary: “Assassins Creed: Brotherhood” might be, hands-down the best game in the series, it is by no means an entry point, despite sporting the most refined game play and offering the most replay value. Picking up at the exact moment “Assassins Creed II” leaves off, “Brotherhood” follows Ezio, now a seasoned, jaded assassins on his quest to liberate Rome from the oppressive rule of the Borgias.
Excerpt: The car won’t drive anymore -- you'll have to ditch it. You strain your eyes to seek her out, but the snow makes it hard to see. Cheryl is out there, somewhere in the whiteness. She’s a little girl lost, drowning in a sea of powder: The lonely resort town of Silent Hill has claimed her.
Conclusion: Thing is, while this is all well and good, we do have to wonder what took Ubisoft so long to port it over. Four months later, and the buzz surrounding the game has died down, with console owners instead waiting for the next instalment to continue the tale. The free DLC nearly makes up for it, but PC gamers will still feel a little let down.
Summary: Let’s deal with the elephant in the room right now: Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood isn’t a quick cash-in on last year’s massively successful and (mostly) critically-acclaimed sequel. It’s not a full-blown sequel, either; this isn’t Assassin’s Creed 3 . Instead, it acts more as an epilogue to the story told in Assassin’s Creed II . What Brotherhood is, however, is a deep and rich game experience that builds on the strengths of its predecessor.
Excerpt: Even before its release, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was the victim of utter scrutinization. Many knew the premise, but most wondered if the ideas present weren't more than fancy add-on content. Multi-player they said. You don't need to make an entirely new game for that! Angry retort from the R.E. 5 fans I suppose. How so many could say such a thing about one of the most ingenious, incredible franchises is beyond me, especially after the sequel.
Conclusion: With the help of a young inventor names Leonardo da Vinci you will get various weapons for your arsenal like poison blade, smoke bombs and even a flying machine. Assassins Creed Brotherhood is a definite upgrade to its predecessor. Everything has been improved upon in this game. The visuals accompanied by the subtle sound design that doesn’t overpower the moments in the game are a nice added touch.
Excerpt: Just a year after the excellent Assassin's Creed II, some thought Assassin's Creed Brotherhood would be a nice bit of Christmas filler before the real ACIII came out. However, Ubisoft have produced a lot more than that. This is a veritable smorgasbord of open world gaming, combining the things we love about ACII with a host of new offerings. In fact, Brotherhood is so jam packed with stuff to do, it's in danger of becoming distracting.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Latest Videos Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood E3 2010 CG Trailer, Dated Lets get one thing out of the way. Assassins Creed II did everything right the first game did wrong. The latter was a good game but got extremely repetitive and had a convoluted storyline. I never bothered to finish the first one but the sequel got me hooked. The series got exactly the push it required.
Excerpt: Assassin’s Creed II was perhaps the most enormous leap in the quality of a franchise of the last decade. A repetitive, monotonous trek with thoroughly detestable characters and a poor excuse for a story was transformed into one of the most engaging and enjoyable open-world games of the generation.
