Assassins Creed : Brotherhood

Thought I should update the blog, been very inactive lately and I apologise for this. The next game I am going to review is Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, one of my favourite 2010 releases. Being a massive fan of the entire Assassin's Creed series, I of course pre-ordered the Codex Edition and had it on the release. Continuing with the story of Desmond Miles, an Assassin from the future who has to access the memories of his ancestors in order to find the pieces of Eden and ultimately save the world from the Templars. A bit of a mindfuck if you don't pay attention, but if you have managed to play through all of the previous Assassin's Creed titles, i'm sure you would understand. As in Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood takes place in the time of Ezio Auditore. However unlike in AC2, Brotherhood is set in ancient Rome. To avoid spoilers, I wont reveal the whole storyline but more just the interesting bits about it.
You now have a Brotherhood of Assassins who are there to help you as you take Rome from the control of Cesare Borgia.
As in AC2, Leonardo Da Vinci helps you along your journey except this time you have to be more discreet about meeting with him as he now works for the Borgia.
During the Stroyline you have the option to burn down Borgia towers, which releases that area from Borgia control, allowing Ezio to purchase and renovate shops or landmarks which earns you some more Florins.
With plenty of new weapons, armour and equipment designed to help Ezio in his struggle to take back Rome.
Graphics in ACB are just as beautiful as they were in AC2 and I am highly impressed with them.

Now with the new addition of the Assassins Creed series, comes the new addition of a Multiplayer. With 8 Multiplayer Maps with more free DLCs on the way, endless combinations of abilities with 5 custom profile sets available and a selection of 17 playable characters (I think). With 5 game modes so far, and i'm sure plenty more to come in future DLCs, the multiplayer is a fresh new idea which is very enjoyable. 50 Multiplayer levels and unlocking new abilities and characters the whole way to level 50, you will never run out of combinations of characters or profile abilities.
As I said earlier Assassin's Creed Brotherhood was one of, if not my favourite release of 2010 and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Was extremely tired while writing this post, so sorry if it lacks quality etc, it's probably fairly shitty, but i'm too tired to care.

  8. I love the series as well. I didn't know that there was actually a storyline for this game, for whatever reason I just assumed it was an online multiplayer version of AC-this makes it more intriguing to me. Perhaps I will pick it up this week! ^^

  12. I played the first one. It got boring with all the repetitive missions after a short while. Never finished it. I assumed sequel is the same...

  15. I remember being really disappointed by the original Assassins Creed. The mechanics and gameplay were great at first but I just found that after an hour or two of playing it became quite boring and repetitive. I might have to check this new one out though.

  17. Yeah I agree, the first Assassins Creed was very repetitive. But number 2 and Brotherhood are completely different, the missions are hardly repetitive and I'd definitely recommend you check them out, even if you didn't like the original Assassins Creed.
