Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

Okay I admit it, I forgot how awesome it was to assassinate people.


Assassin's Creed Brotherhood continues the story from the second part. The main character, Desmond Miles is using a machine to seek his memories of his forefathers in order to beat the evil templars who are attempting to dominate mankind. Well actually you dont play as Desmond that much, which is just fine by me actually.
You follow the life of Ezio Auditore da Firenze in his quest for reacquiring the fancy Apple of Eden, which is a mysterious artifact of unspeakable powers.



The game itself is just as beautiful as you would expect, the old Rome is definitely one of the most convincing settings for a videogame I have seen in a long time. The citizens live their daily lives and they make the city actually seem like a living and breathing work of art. Truly a masterfully made setting.

The game has only a few flaws in my opinion, one of the most annoying is the targeting system which seems to be suffering from ADHD. Try shooting a guard with a crossbow and the targeting system suddently swings the aim at some innocent bystanders. "Ezio did not kill civilians" No shit.
Camera angles are somewhat annoying at some points where you actually need to do some precise jumping, but usually it is more than tolerable.


I havent tried the multiplayer yet but I cannot wait to do so, this game does not have that many flaws in the end.

This game is a work of art and I would not be surprised to see several "GOTY" awards for it.
Score: 9,5/10

Oh, the shitty DRM from the second one has been removed and the dlc is available for free.
