Well it’s that time. The time where I review the latest game that I beat.
This time it was Assassins Creed: Brotherhood. You play as Desmond reliving the life of his ancestor Ezio Auditore. This time the action takes place in Rome where the Borgia family has come to power and have forced the people to follow their rule, and it’s up to Ezio to free the people and remove the Borgia from power.
In my opinion this is one of the best Assassins Creed games to date. A newish combat system that allows you to kill and enemy and then immediately kill another enemy. Adding a kick to Ezio’s skill allowing him to break certain enemies defenses. All the old weapons are back including one new one: the crossbow and an addition of an old one: the poison darts.
Adding to the fun is a Multiplayer mode that is actually balanced *GASP*. I know right the only difference between any of the characters you can play as is you own ability and the skills you can set. This makes the whole experience new and exciting every time. Each match in multiplayer starts with you choosing your avatar, and a skill set that you’ve made. From there the chosen map is generated and the secluded world is filled with people who look just like everyone’s avatar, making this one hell of a Where’s Waldo.
The game was great. It made me stay up until the wee hours of the morning playing it just to see where the story was going. The multiplayer made me smile a whole lot. The only problems I really had with it was that sometimes the player who killed you is going to get you again and can easily kill you once you respawn. And for the fact that once you kill your target it’s really easy to get killed by your pursuer.
All in all this is a great game that anyone should pickup if they liked the first 2 and are of over the age of 17.
