Giant Bomb (Nov 17, 2010)
Ubisoft's distinctive murder adventure series gets better and better with this continuation of Assassin's Creed II.
GameSpy (Nov 16, 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.
God is a Geek (Nov 25, 2010)
For those who haven’t played any of the previous games in the series, you might want to play Assassin’s Creed II before you venture into Rome. However, make no mistake about it, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is still one highly enjoyable standalone product – a must for fans of the series and genre alike. Not bad for a game initially touted as a “stop-gap” and “money-spinner”, not bad at all.
Xboxygen (Nov 19, 2010)
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood ne s’annonçait que comme une suite d’Assassin’s Creed 2, et il nous a dévoilé bien plus que cela en ne se reposant pas sur ses lauriers, en proposant toujours plus de choses et en écoutant les joueurs, et rien que cela, ça fait plaisir. Mais rajoutez à cela un multijoueurs décalé des multijoueurs actuels, en bien plus passionnant et imprévisible, bien fichu de surcroît, et vous obtiendrez un des must have de cette fin d’année. Il est cependant quasi obligatoire d’avoir terminé Assassin’s Creed 2 pour pouvoir comprendre quelque chose à l’histoire du solo, et cela doit être le gros point noir : devoir rattraper plusieurs dizaines d’heures sur un très bon jeu déjà dépassé par celui-ci en terme d’expérience, avant de pouvoir s’attaquer à celui-ci qui fait bien mieux. Mais bon, on va pas s’en plaindre non plus...
100 (UK) (Nov 16, 2010)
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.
GamePro (US) (Nov 16, 2010)
Brotherhood is the best showcase yet for the series' formidable quality and range, with an excellent campaign and an equally intriguing online approach, and while I hope the next one actually answers some questions, I can't begrudge Ubisoft in the slightest for giving us one more memorable voyage with Ezio.
games xtreme (Nov 19, 2010)
Astounding. That's the only word we can add to this game, it is simply astounding and an amazing achievement for just 12 months of development. Ubisoft has done the Assassin's Creed franchise proud and created for me one of the best games of 2010, if not the best and you know how much I love Red Dead Redemption.
Game Chronicles (Dec 18, 2010)
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood isn’t as much a sequel as a completion to the second game, and while this is certainly the best game of the three so far, you probably don’t want to jump into the story without having played at least the second game first. Brotherhood polishes the presentation and fine-tunes the combat and gameplay to create a masterpiece of action and adventure with a rewarding storyline. The whole concept of the animus and reliving memories embedded in DNA creates so much potential. I can’t wait to explore other ancestral memories from the 1600’s all the way to the present. And until that next big adventure arrives, I’ll be perfecting my own assassin skills in some of the best online multiplayer currently available.
96 (Nov 18, 2010)
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is no hastily cobbled together, cynically made sequel. That it feels as new and exciting as Assassin's Creed II did a year ago is testament to how much new stuff Ubisoft Montreal has crammed into the game, making it an outstanding sequel that marks a new high for the series. Multiplayer is an incredible new addition that feels in no way tacked on and actually works remarkably well. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's story meanwhile isn't as compelling as Ezio's journey in ACII, but it's still hugely engaging nonetheless. Rome is also a fantastic and beautifully realised setting, making every moment you spend around its landmarks, aqueducts and densely populated streets an absolute pleasure. It's for these reasons that Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is every bit as essential as it's forebear, an outstanding achievement and a magnificent game in its own right. When in Rome, you won't want to leave.
Destructoid (Nov 16, 2010)
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.
Planet Xbox 360 (Nov 16, 2010)
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is an essential addition to the series’ that unleashes an unbelievable amount of fresh content, sure to tickle the fancy of anyone willing to strap themselves into the Animus for another go at living the life of Rome’s most elusive hero – this is the best Assassin’s Creed to date. Hands-down this is one of the best games of 2010, it’s amazing and shouldn’t be missed by fans of the franchise; it has us excited as to what’s coming next from the Assassin’s Creed team.
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is definitely the apex of the Assassin's Creed series thus far. The story does a great job of furthering both the historical plot as well as the overarching sci-fi elements of the story (Desmond has a much larger role here), and the game's new structure is refreshing for those who may have found the back-and-forth structure of last year's title to be a bit tedious. With plenty of story content and even more to unlock online, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is a must-purchase for fans of the series, and does quite a bit to improve upon an already-solid formula.
XboxAchievements (Nov 16, 2010)
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is an unmitigated triumph, taking the superlative groundwork laid by its forebear and building upon it. That you're confined to Rome is never an issue, as it's a vast and seamlessly sprawling, cohesive environment. Rebuilding the city and driving out the Borgia is about as compulsive as gaming gets and chances are, you'll sit glued to the game throughout and feverishly complete every Subject 16 puzzle, collect every item and refurbish every shop, aqueduct, faction building and underground tunnel you come across. Achingly beautiful to behold and incredible to play, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will be the best Roman holiday you'll ever have.
1UP (Nov 16, 2010)
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.
TheSixthAxis (Nov 25, 2010)
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.
90 (Nov 16, 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.
Made2Game (Nov 24, 2010)
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.
Gametactics (Dec 01, 2010)
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is a great game with a fully fledged single player story that spans more than 15 hours and a robust multiplayer. There is actually so much to do in the map sometimes I had a hard time finding symbols because there were so many other things to do. The underground platform puzzles are brought back and if they’re all completed Ezio unlocks some cool armor. Old friends from the second game return like Leonardo da Vinci and Caterina of Forli. Multiplayer provides hours of intense action that I will enjoy for a long time.
GameTrailers (Nov 17, 2010)
It was initially thought that Assassin's Creed Brotherhood might be a multiplayer-focused game where the campaign was an afterthought, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Just as lengthy and deeper than its predecessors, Ezio's latest adventure holds the line. Many of the gameplay issues have gone unchecked once again, but assassin recruitment, development, and implementation is far more addictive than you might think. The multiplayer component definitely has its moments, but serious players will be turned off by how random it can be. For the series to remain elite it will need to evolve, but for now, its unique premise and core gameplay are more than enough to make this brotherhood one worth joining.
AusGamers (Nov 17, 2010)
Without the multiplayer addition, Brotherhood probably wouldn’t have scored as high for me. It’s an excellent entrant in the series, but lacks the innovation we’d all like to see, and if you’ve played ACII, by and large, you’ve played this. It’s a minor evolution in terms of tweaked gameplay and a few new gameplay additions, but as a fan of the entire AC concept, I really would rather all the resources be poured into an entirely new chapter, in a new era with a new assassin. And hopefully that’s what we get in a year’s time.
Extreme Gamer (Dec 20, 2010)
'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.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Nov 26, 2010)
Brotherhood is de beste Assassin's Creed totnogtoe. Niet zo revolutionair als de overgang tussen het matige eerste deel en het goede tweede, maar een verfijning op quasi ieder deelgebied. Aanrader!
Gamegravy (Sep 14, 2012)
I LOVE the Assassin’s Creed games, so it is hard for me to say the good from the bad. But, since you need an unbiased opinion I can say this, if you have never played the previous two installments, then you will love this game, the amazing graphics, game play, and action but may get lost due to the continuation of the story. Now, for the players that have played the last two games, you will notice the little differences and love the multiplayer but will think the game is a lot like ACII with the minor improvements. My biased opinion though is the game is awesome and if you can get it at a deal, you definitely need to pick it up.
85 (Nov 17, 2010)
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.
GamesCollection (Nov 23, 2010)
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.
GameSpot (Nov 16, 2010)
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.
Gamekult (Nov 18, 2010)
Malgré sa taille, sa beauté et sa variété, on regrette, c'est vrai, que Rome reste la seule véritable aire de jeu quand la série nous avait habitué à plus de changements. Mais la cité italienne regorge de choses à faire, de quartiers à découvrir, à libérer et reconstruire, de citoyens à sauver, embrigader et former, de secrets à dénicher, de quêtes secondaires à boucler. Voilà qui contre-balance très bien des missions principales efficaces mais qui manquent parfois un brin d'originalité. Les fans ne devraient donc pas bouder ces retrouvailles avec Ezio d'autant que Brotherhood introduit également une nouveauté de taille : un mode multijoueur terriblement bien pensé, accrocheur et passionnant. Si cette suite est moins surprenante et bluffante que ses prédécesseurs en leur temps, elle reste d'une redoutable efficacité, affutée comme la lame secrète de son héros.
Absolute Games ( (Feb 07, 2011)
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.
Brash Games (Nov 26, 2010)
The only thing holding Brotherhood back from greatness is an overriding sense of familiarity. Judged on its own merits, it’s a fantastic adventure crammed with things to see and do. Rome is arguably Ubisoft Montreal’s finest work to date, filled with truly spectacular architecture and blessed with a variety of mission types and challenges that surpasses both of its forbearers. The story may not deliver much in the way of major surprises but the gameplay is first rate from beginning to end. If you can get over the fact that Brotherhood is essentially Assassin’s Creed 2.5, then you’ll be in for one hell of a ride.
IGN (Nov 16, 2010)
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.
Console Obsession (Jan 18, 2011)
The multiplayer is Assassin Creed: Brotherhood’s most inventive aspect, whilst the single player is merely a refinement over the previous game and still possesses almost as many flaws as it does excellence. It’s still a wonderful and uniquely flavoured open world game, but one that, in regards to its single player, still hasn’t quite managed to reach its full potential at this point.
ActionTrip (Nov 29, 2010)
In short, I felt like Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was a rip off. It feels like it was rushed, there are noticeably more bugs (though they are slight). Very little of substance is new or different (apart from the inclusion of multiplayer), all of the same frustrations are there and I mostly felt like playing different games when I was playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Every time I got on a horse and started free roaming, I wanted to play Red Dead Redemption. Every time I got into a big fight, I wanted to be playing Batman: Arkham Asylum. Every time I was climbing through another boring and drab jumping puzzle, I wished to be playing Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. While Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood kind of brings all of these mechanics together, all of these are done better elsewhere. To someone whom has never experienced this series and wants to, I would have to recommend picking up Assassin's Creed 2 instead.
Wired (Nov 17, 2010)
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.
