Customer Review

on December 11, 2010
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is not called Assassin's Creed III for a reason. In my opinion the game was designed for the multiplayer, which is fantastic. The campaign took me 3 days to beat, and it was enjoyable. The last two sequences seemed.... different, and not particularly in a good way; however, the campaign gets a 8.5/10.
Now the multiplayer. I am a multiplayer person, why buy a game just for the single player? Rent it if you only want to play the campaign. This game is the best multiplayer I have played in a long time. Game changing in the way Halo Combat Evolved (Halo 1) multiplayer was.
In the multiplayer you are an abstergo agent hunting down other abstergo agents. You can control many different characters you see throughout 16th century Italy in the campaign: doctors, courtesans, thieves, blacksmiths, priests etc. You have two abilities you can use and two perks. The perks are bonuses you have throughout the games and the abilities are actions you can use which will help you. Some abilities are Smoke Bomb (stuns assassins hunting you), templar vision (see through a crowd of people to zoom in on your target) and morph, changing the crowd around you to look like you. Perks are minor improvements, like resistance (less time spent stunned), wall climber (start at a slightly higher position on a wall when climbing) etc.
What is great about the multiplayer, and I can say this with confidence after playing over 150 games, is that nothing is overpowered. You have no people with cheap weapons that make the game boring and repetitive. The game is evenly balanced, and exceptionally fun.

For me this game would get game of the year, far surpassing black ops (huge disappointment) and Red dead redemption.
Campaign 8.5/10
Graphics 10/10
Multiplayer 10/10
Overall a must buy 9.5/10
