From the Manufacturer

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is an epic action game for the PC set across a blend of present and historical time periods, that places the player in the role of the leader of a Renaissance-era guild of assassins out for vengeance against the remnants of the Knights Templar. Set primarily in Rome, this sequel to the critically acclaimed Assassin's Creed II features returning characters from the previous game and includes new features such as the ability to command members of your guild in combat, a new arsenal of weapons and multiplayer game support in which players can assume different assassin characters.

Story
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 of assassins who will rally to his side. Only by working together can the assassins defeat their mortal enemies and prevent the extinction of their order.

Multiple Ways to Play
Expanding on the game world woven across the first two games in the franchise, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood provides players with multiple ways to play. In single player mode you take on an engrossing campaign playing as Ezio, the hero from Assassin's Creed II, who has now risen to the level of Master Assassin. Here players scour the expansive environment of Renaissance-era Rome, tasked with ridding the Eternal City of the continuing stain of the Templars and in the process ensuring the survival of the guild of assassins. You are not in this alone though. Additional AI members of your guild are at your command, and can be summoned to your aid if need be. In addition to this, for the first time in the Assassin's Creed franchise players can compete with other would-be assassins in multiplayer action. In multiplayer modes players choose from a range of Assassin characters, each with their own backstory, unique weapons and assassination techniques. Choose your assassin character, utilize the virtual reality capabilities of Abstergo Industries' Animus technology and match your skills against other assassins from around the world. There's no time like now to join the Brotherhood.

Deadly Weapons Arsenal
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood features a wide variety of weapons, depending on the mode of play. In single player players primarily utilize Ezio's weapons of choice, the hidden blade and crossbow, while in multiplayer modes players gain access to a wide variety of weapon, depending on the character they choose to play as. Examples of this include: the Axe, wielded by the Executioner; the Fan, used by the Courtesan; the Syringe, the tool by the Doctor; the Dagger, used by the Priest; the Switchblade, carried by the Prowler; and the Claw, used by the Nobleman.

Key Game Features

  • As Ezio, a legendary Master Assassin, experience over 15 hours of single player gameplay set in the living, breathing, unpredictable city of Rome.
  • Recruit and train promising young Assassins. Deploy them across the city as you see fit, or call upon them to aid you in your quests.
  • Collaborate with real historical characters such as Leonardo DA Vinci, Niccolo Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza.
  • Use your hard-won currency to revitalize the crumbling capital city. Rally the citizens to your cause and unlock extra factions and missions.
  • Swiftly eliminate your enemies using tools such as poison darts, parachutes, double hidden blades, hidden guns, and an advanced flying machine at your disposal.
  • 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.

This game does not work on better than 10.6, as one would think. I paid, downloaded, installed and then it didn't work. I contacted Ubisoft and they told me 10.7 was not supported. They also suggested that I downgrade my machine. How reasonable is that. Spend $1,500.00 for a $30.00 game. I feel like I was ripped off. It's hard to believe that in this day and age they can't support something better, like Lion. Amazon, needs to say, 10.6 only.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Mac Download functions just like it's supposed to. However, if you install the game per Amazon's instructions, Disk Utility will tell you that there is an 'illegal seek', 'disc image error', or some other error message upon clicking 'Install'. To prevent this, make sure to put the Amazon Downloader into the Applications Folder. Then, close the Downloader and reopen it from the Applications Folder. Double click to start Download. Download time is about 3-4 hours. Content was 8.1 GB for me.

If you like the Assassin's Creed series, but you have an Apple computer, this is the right buy.

If the game crashes immediately after trying to launch the single player, there is a quick way around this problem. Go to Applications, find the file with Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, right click on the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood icon inside the folder, and scroll down to Show Package Contents. Click on the Contents folder and then click on the MacOS folder. Inside there are two boxes called acbmf_sf and scimitar_sf. To my understanding, the scimitar_sf launches the single player game and does not work for me, and the acbmf_sf launches the multiplayer game. Click on the acbmf_sf icon to launch the multiplayer. This multiplayer section actually launches and will ask for a user name and password. Click cancel and the game will ask if you want to exit to the single player game. Click yes and the game will launch and is now playable. I hope this helps anyone that is not able to launch the game.

I installed this back in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. It worked great. I've now got 10.8 Mountain Lion, and it still works just the same. If you can't get this to run on your Mac, don't blame Ubisoft or Amazon. Works just fine for me on my mid '10 iMac - 8GB 3.6ghz Core i5, ATI Radeon HD 5670 512MB. So, if you want to come on here, write a review, and tell people that Amazon told you that it doesn't work in Lion, either you're a liar, or that employee should get a talkin to. The only sad part is, Ubisoft hasn't released Revelations for the Mac, yet. And, according to the wiki page, they have no plans to release AC: 3 for the Mac, either. Why not?

Come on, Ubisoft. I've got AC: 2 via the Mac app store, and AC: Brotherhood via Amazon direct download. Just waiting patiently for you to release another AC for the Mac. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Let me star off by saying I have the base model of the 13 inch MBP 2012 running ML 10.8.2. i upgraded my hard drive to a 256 GB samsung 830 ssd and I upgraded the ram from 4 to 8 GBs. In order to complete the downloads you need to put each application that requires downloading into your applications folder, close out the apps and then open them back up in your app folder and start the download. Once I did all of this I tried to start the game but a message would pop up saying the game would not start due to tech errors. This was very frustrating and I tried to open the game up from different locations and still the error would appear. Then I just kept trying to open the game until suddenly a patch from ubisoft start loading on my desktop. Finally once all the patches were complete the uplay window popped up and I created an account at which point I could start the game from the ubisoft uplay application. The game is awesome. The graphics are better, the combat is more fluent, and scaling rooftops seems to be a bit faster and easier. The storyline is sick and so is Rome. I'm very pleased with the purchase and if u are running into a similar problem as I was then keep trying to open the game until a patch starts downloading on your screen too. I believe this occurred because every time the app failed it sent a message to ubisoft and they patched me in. Other people have had similar experiences to mine so it wasn't luck. If u liked AC2 then u will like ACB

Basically un-playable and people had the same issue two years ago when it was released. Still trying to find a legit solution that doesn't require writing code. Apparently Ubisoft has done nothing to help fix this. In it's current state I would highly recommend not buying this game as it doesn't work.

When they say Snow Leopard, that is not a minimum requirement. And there are no refunds.

Unless (1) you haven't updated the software on your Mac in years or (2) you want to deal with the setup and lag of a virtual machine, don't buy this.

Contacting customer service was a pain in the ass, and the people were unsympathetic.

The game itself is fine, but I spent the better part of a weekend getting it to install. The process is overly complicated and if you download it to the wrong folder (or the desktop) you have to restart the whole download (which takes 3+ hours). Make your life easier and buy it through Steam.
