Cons: Story's kind of flat compared to ACII, Visual glitches, occasionally infuriating controls, Waiting for the next game after the WTF ending

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.
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.
