Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

ac brohd

We continue our thread of Assassin’s Creed reviews with the third game that ain’t 3. Though there is a 3 but it’s really 5 I guess. Ah well. So Brotherhood is the second part of Ezio’s trilogy and a pretty good entry. It picks up almost exactly where it leaves him at the end of Assassin’s Creed 2 where sadly, the Borgia family reigns hell down on him, kill uncle Mario, and Ezio is understandably pissed, but this time he can’t do it alone. By rescuing the weak and down trodden from the Borgia’s bullying, he pulls them into his newly developing Assassin brotherhood…oh and did I mention Desmond does stuff with that Lucy chick who totally ain’t a Templar…

Ok, as far as the series goes, it’s a good game. In fact, it really does feel like a huge epilogue to 2 in a lot of ways. The biggest new addition is the ability to now call for back up from assassins you saved and train, getting some really badass attacks in time. Another really cool thing is the side quests where you have to destroy Da Vinci’s prototype war machines, that was a lot of fun. Something I didn’t like were the QTEs they snuck in there, especially towards the end. Another thing I got to say is Desmond’s stuff while not bad and fun does feel like filler and breaks immersion  bit. That twist at the end I don’t really buy either but alright. In the end, it’s a fun game and a good continuation to 2. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
