If you have played any of the Assassin’s Creed games you will know they are one of the best third person games around. Assassin’s Creed 1 gets a little repetitive with some of the missions but the graphics, the fighting controls, the story and everything about it rocks. Assassin’s Creed II only improves on everything that is great about the first one and fixes want wasn’t to make it just that much better. So, with Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood only being released one year later can they really make a game that is going to be on par with the first two?….Yes they can!!! I have not been disappointed in any of these games and I am looking forward to Assassin’s Creed 3. Yes, this is the third A.C. game but it is not the A.C. 3 it is a continuation of A.C. 2. If you have not played any of the Assassin’s Creed games I would highly recommend starting with the first game for all the games are a continuation from the next.
You will once again take over Ezio as the main character and you will also be playing Desmond more as well as Desmond becomes more of a Master Assassin. This story starts exactly where A.C. 2 ends and it is set in Rome. That is all I will say about the story for I do not wish to give anything away.
This is near a perfect game except it has to end eventually…that is a bummer.
New to this game is online multiplayer mode. You can choose one of 10 basic characters and if you have downloaded the collectors edition or have the pre-order the game there are a couple of more characters you can play. I have found running around multiplayer fun however sometimes they really don’t match you up with people of the same skill level. There was one time I was level 5 and the rest of the people where level 17 to 45….I didn’t do so well. Be warned.
Parents, this is not a game for children. I would say 16 and up depending on the maturity of the teenager. There is some strong language and sexual themes, and blood and violence. There is tons of history in this game and lots of interesting information about historical places as well as people.
