Assassin's Creed Brotherhood for Xbox 360

Updated on March 22, 2011

Better than Assassin's Creed 2

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood follows Assassin's Creed 2 and the original Assassin's Creed and is a third party adventure game set during the Renaissance (well, sort of. It's a complicated story to explain). Although there are variety of weapons available, it's kind of refreshing to have a game that doesn't have dozens of automatic guns and rocket launchers. I hope game developers will look at the success of the Assassin's Creed franchise and focus on other time periods, like the Civil War or World War 1 (I want to toss bombs out of biplanes into trenches, gosh darnit!). 

I've only played Assassin's Creed Brotherhood on the Microsoft Xbox 360, so if you're looking for a comparison between the Xbox 360 version on the Playstation 3 version, you won't find it here. I would imagine the games are nearly the same, as are the graphics. Very few games available for both systems are significantly different. That might change as developers start to really dive deep into the PS3's capabilities, but for the most part they aren't there yet. 

The Story: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has you playing as a master assassin by the name of Ezio. Your task is to go into Rome and fight the remnants of the Knights Templar. You'll have members of your guild traveling with you, and you are their leader. 

Gameplay: Brotherhood introduces multiplayer play where you can battle against other master assassins. You'll have a variety of weapons to use in this game, from the crossbow to the knife to hidden firearms and poison darts. You can even get an advanced flying machine. Before you state that planes weren't around in this time period, realize that there are many historical characters in this game, including Leonardo da Vinci and Machiavelli. Those geniuses can help you and provide you with new ways to do battle. Everything about the city of Rome is unpredictable and you can interact in a massive environment.

With the multiplayer, some have reported problems connecting to the server, but I haven't had any problems. I don't know if there really is a problem or if people just need to contact their family IT guy. 

Graphics: I absolutely love the graphics in Brotherhood. I think it's one of the best looking games on the Xbox 360. I'm not sure how much better they could do on the PS3. The graphics are similar but better than those found in Assassin's Creed 2. 

Overall rating: 9.5 out of 10. I think this is one of the best single player games released on the Xbox 360 so far. The multiplayer is fun but perhaps lacking compared to some other great multiplayer games, such as those in the Call of Duty series. I can forgive that because I loved the single player so much. There are many collectibles to search for as well, so you'll be playing for 12 to 20 hours. Rating on Amazon for ACB is 4.5 out of 5 stars.
