''Nothing is true; everything is permitted.''By DxT (11 reviews) from Milton Keynes , 16 Nov 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]This quick review is based on the 4 hours i have played.
I love this game!! i prefer it much more than the previous AC titles. The action starts very quickly in this game, weapons and armour upgrades are available early on. You can also renovate buildings very early on in this game which is great so you can start saving up the cash.
There is a 'tower defence' type min-game in which Ezio leads a defence against attackers. The camera angles in this are rather restricting since its an over-the-shoulder type view. Also when you loot your fallen foes for cash/items the camara seem to swivel around so you have to regain your bearings each time you loot. But these are the only minor annoyances and they do not hinder the game.
Fighting scenes are great with some new attacks, and great animations. A new hook blade??..now i didnt like this to start but now it has grown on me, making climbing easier and faster once you get used it. It also adds some cool attack animations such as grabbing the enemy's legs and pulling them pulling down like a sweeping attack. You can also run at enemies and using the hook you can 'roll over them', great for when your on the run and you need the run directly through a group of guards.
If your a Assassin's creed fan don't bother renting this title, get out there and buy it!!!! you wont regret it.
Thanks for reading

Doesn't add alot to the previous installment.By LucasIR (1 review) , 13 May 2013To be honest it doesn't add alot to Brotherhood, aside from a new mini tower defence game. Which aren't even optional. If you're interested in how the story of the two protagonists have finished out then it's worth getting just to see how they end....or do they....
Is it a film or a game?By Biggie1879 (1 review) , 20 Mar 2013This game would probably get 5 stars if you could skip through the story, it was like watching a film. On the other hand, the graphics were amazing.
truely great!By jakir (22 reviews) , 25 Feb 2013wow! finally finished. played all the games prev to this and am looking forward to 3. makes more sense and story gets deeper. game play i think was best by far looking forward to the more current one. i would not recommend to all because in my opinion games like this requires patience and when i played the first AC i didn't really enjoy it but the story was captivating and knowing that they made improvements to the game play had me intrigued. this game play was great! im hoping 3 is better.
Brilliant gameBy Sxxrating (6 reviews) , 18 Feb 2013Very intresting and fantastic game well worth playing. Lots of things to do and so much fun doing the tasks. from crafting to bombs to building your assassin empire such an amazing game. Graphics 10, Gameplay 10, length of the game 9, If your intrested in a fantastic action adventure game taking to the highest limit of fun this is the game you want to get.
Keeping the OrderBy xGreenLantern92x (15 reviews) , 06 Feb 2013I myself have finally bought this game, mainly because I wanted to play the awesome looking Assassin's Creed III but didn't want to miss out on something critical in the narrative (even though I personally find the AC story harder to follow than a squirrel on ecstasy in the dark) but thought I should honour the time and effort Ubisoft put in to making this game, so I finally bought and finished just last week. Well, as mentioned earlier, following and/or explaining the story is not my strong point, but I will certainly try. From what I can tell, Ezio has been spending the last thirty years searching for clues left behind by the master and mentor assassin Altair. He eventually returns to Masyaf, the original headquarters of the Order, to find it under Templar control. After fighting, being captured by and then escaping the Templars, Ezio learns of the location of five Masyaf keys which open Altair's library and sets sail for Constantinople in search of them. The gameplay and general elements are identical to the previous two instalments, Ezio's hidden blade, small weapon, throwing knives etc. however this time, Ezio receives a hookblade, which allows him to attach on to ziplines around the city and scale buildings easier. You also have the ability like in the others to renovate the city, restoring blacksmiths and tailors and the like. Don't get me wrong, the game is good, much like the previous ones, but I think this game was really made to keep people happy while the developers worked on the much bigger project of AC3. There is a lot of recycled mechanicals which some might say is lazy but then again, if it ain't broke... All in all this game is pretty good, but mainly feels like its just an appetiser while the main course of the third game is prepared.
