It's one of many finishing touches to a game that started life as what sounded suspiciously like a fund-raising stopgap conceived on the back of an overdrawn chequebook and blurted out during a conference call. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is anything but that, however – it's one of the best games of 2010.
It would be easy to dismiss this game as an expansion, but I've never seen an expansion that actually offers players this much more than its predecessor, including the introduction of one of the most promising multiplayer modes to come down the aqueduct in some time.
It seemed to be an impossible task for Ubisoft to turn around a year after the release of Assassin’s Creed II and deliver such a polished follow-up to a game that many critics were calling one of 2009’s best titles. Yet, against all odds, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood exists in 2010, and it not only lives up to the hype, but it manages to completely outclass its predecessor. Brotherhood is a game that Assassin’s Creed fans simply cannot afford to miss, and one of best games this year.
There are still so many other small details I could talk about, but they all hammer home the same point: this is a great game. The multiplayer aspects aren't that engaging for me -- there's just not enough to do to balance out the frustration of not being able to defend myself in a fight. However, I love how deep the team has managed to make the single-player portion of the game (again). If you've followed the AC series this far, you'd be remiss to let this one pass you by; even with the criticisms I've listed above, I'm comfortable saying that another Assassin's Creed game will make my list of "favorite games of the year." I can't wait to see what Ubisoft Montreal does next with the series.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is the most iterative instalment in Ubisoft's pseudo-historic franchise. The storyline, while confusing to newcomers, will intrigue series veterans. However, it's in the gameplay refinements that Brotherhood really shines, mixing satisfying combat and parkour with simple role-playing mechanics.
Brotherhood is not perfect but it’s difficult to imagine how it could be improved upon. It could be called a perfect sequel, even if it is just a branched-off stop-gap after Assassin’s Creed II rather than a fully-fledged Assassin’s Creed III. The mistakes in game design from ACII have been addressed and there are a few other improvements, particularly to make the combat flow more naturally. All while building on the parts of Assassin’s Creed that make you feel powerful, deadly and silent. Without question, this is one of the best games of 2010.
Nonostante questo, comunque, Brotherhood è un gran gioco, un'avventura intensa (il finale è una bomba, ed è riuscito a farmi cambiare idea riguardo all'inevitabile Assassin's Creed ambientato ai giorni nostri, a cui si arriverà prima o poi) e un'esperienza longeva, coinvolgente e gratificante. Ubisoft ha saputo imparare dai propri errori, confezionando un gioiello adatto a ogni genere di giocatore.
Brotherhood feels more GTA than ever but that is not a bad thing, it just seems that Ubisoft now know what works for the genre and what doesn’t. Brotherhood may not be a full fat game, but Ezio’s story is one of the most interesting ones that has been crafted in gaming and just for that he deserves another visit.
'Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood' expands the dynamic lore of the series by stepping back in the shoes of Italy's own Dark Knight, Ezio Auditore. While Brotherhood strays farther away from foundation of the original 'Assassin's Creed,' it still has the ability to hold your interest and lock you into an engaging story. Even if some of the mystique is lost, Brotherhood is an excellent game, but it's sadly the weakest out of the bunch. As Ubisoft dips its hand into amalgamating the “Assassin's” experience, the future seems as foggy as the constant developing tale between the Assassin's and Templars. Curiously this only makes “Assassin's 3' more intriguing. The team has the talent, let's just hope they don't loose the focus.
Unfortunately, at the end of the day, Brotherhood isn’t quite as good as Assassin’s Creed II, but the standard set by its predecessor was so high that this doesn’t mean it’s not a fantastic game. Even if the story, characters and difficulty leave something to be desired and some of the content is filler, the variety is staggering, the majority of the gameplay is brilliant, and the core gameplay has improved, if only slightly, with the addition of new weapons and the Assassin Recruits. The multiplayer is an interesting take on the main game and actually works very well. A game developed in just a year, to follow on from an extremely successful and well-loved game, runs the risk of being branded a cash-in, but Brotherhood is certainly not. This is not franchise-milking, and nor is it a spin-off. Brotherhood is an Assassin’s Creed game down to the core, and although ACII is a superior game, Brotherhood is an enthralling, enjoyable and varied experience.
Ich hätte wirklich viel erwartet - aber nicht das, was Ubisoft mit Assassin's Creed Brotherhood abliefert! Denn entgegen meiner Befürchtung ist die Bruderschaft keine Flickschusterei oder Übergangslösung, um die Entwicklungszeit für Teil 3 mit einer einträglichen Melkaktion zu füllen. Stattdessen ist ACB eine unheimlich runde, mit sinnvollen Ergänzungen und Neuerungen (wie z.B. die Sekundärziele der meisten Missionen) vollgestopfte Erlebniswelt des Roms der Renaissance, in der man mit Ezio sein Unwesen treiben darf. Dieses Assassin's Creed ist das Spiel, das Teil 2 hätte sein können, nein: hätte sein sollen.
La componente multiplayer era sempre stata reclamata a gran voce ed ora finalmente è qui: di certo è un buon inizio e regala diverse ore di sano divertimento in compagnia dei vostri amici. Consiglio certamente l’acquisto a chiunque non abbia mai provato ad essere un Assassino e voglia dilettarsi nell’attesa dei titoli che ci riserva il 2011; per tutti gli altri..saprete già certamente come muovervi in questo mondo tumultuoso! Assaporate tutte le gustose novità e rimboccatevi le maniche, c’è molto ancora da fare per fermare la minaccia Templare.
Almost every aspect of the series has seen enhancements in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, from travel (you can whistle for a horse and ride it almost anywhere) to value (you can now replay any completed memory). There is joy in leaping across the Roman rooftops, taking in the grand sights in front of you and realizing that it is all your own playground. Stealing a combatant's spear from him and impaling him on it is a brutal pleasure. And the little touches--the way Claudia meets Ezio's stare with one of her own, or the fluid animations that characterize your agile maneuvers--are constant reminders of what makes these games so enchanting. This may not be Assassin's Creed III, but like Ezio's smirk, Brotherhood is too irresistible to ignore.
A new Assassin's should be something special, but while playing Brotherhood my mind kept turning to the likely location of the next one. Paris during the French Revolution? The foggy streets of Victorian England? Faliraki, now? Thinking about the next thing while you're still on the current one is like turning off the lights and imagining someone sexier. Sorry Ezio... Maybe if you wear a blond wig?
Since the game is a direct continuation of the second game its strongly recommended to have played through Assassin’s Creed II before adventuring into Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.
La fin est toutefois décevante, l’aventure est peut-être un peu moins marquante, l’intelligence artificielle est toujours aussi peu réactive et le tout souffre de quelques bugs, soucis graphiques et techniques. Malgré tout, cet opus reste agréable à l’œil, la campagne est riche et bien fournie, les assassinats sont toujours aussi bons, il y a plein de choses à faire et la durée de vie s’accroît pour peu que l’on s’attarde sur tous les à-côtés, que l’on désactive les HUD et qu’on ne cède pas à la facilité des transports rapides. Au final, tout le monde ou presque devrait y trouver son compte en solo, tant celui-ci se révèle être de très bonne facture, laissant clairement pensé à un volet de la série à part entière plus qu’à un simple spin-off.
Аддон, но независимый, сиквел, но без порядкового номера — такие гибриды все чаще выходят в последнее время. Иногда нам продают работу над ошибками, реже — достойную эволюцию концепции, однако в любом случае на разработку уходит максимум год. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood — как раз из этой братии. Здесь нечего ловить тем, кто только что подключился к трансляции из эпохи Возрождения. Странствия Эцио Аудиторе и его потомка Десмонда Майлза предназначены строго для посвященных.
Brotherhood is a great game, but it’s hard to wholeheartedly recommend. This is really a title designed for fans of Assassin’s Creed II, as it’s a continuation of that story, but the reality is that people who finished that game want something new – or that at least represents a clear step forward. Brotherhood doesn’t deliver that. The game doesn’t advance the wider narrative very far, the new mechanics don’t really add a great deal and the mission designs rarely explore new gameplay possibilities. That said, Brotherhood really looks the part, with a step up in the graphics department, and a massive and varied city to explore. It also introduces an innovative multiplayer suite, for which the team(s) should be applauded. If you’re new to Assassin’s Creed, this is a solid entry, but picking up the threads of the convoluted story may be a challenge. If you’re an experienced assassin, on the other hand, expect to tread pretty similar ground to the last title.
Considering Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood as a total package, it’s just barely worth full price. There’s a decent quantity of content, but the amount that’s recycled from the last game is stunning, a purely cynical ploy to squeeze out more money in lieu of preserving any semblance of artistic integrity.
