Just one more thing....,
This review is from: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This was my first Assassin's Creed game so I can't comment on how it compares to the previous titles. On its own it's simply outstanding. Rome is a huge, living city comparable to any the GTA games and all carefully laid out to provide a terrific environment for the game to take place in. The story is well worked with decent voice acting and there are lots of side missions and challenges that push the longevity to many hours.
In addition are the Virtual Training missions which offer a chance to improve skills as well compete for a place on global leaderboards. There is a very entertaining multiplayer offering which is surprisingly fast paced but allows for thought and cunning to prevail over just quick reactions.
Graphically it's very good with some excellent combat animations for the main character. With practice you can pull off some long and hugely impressive kill streaks that will have you grinning.
This is one of those games that has you saying to yourself 'I'll do just one more thing before I go to bed...' and the next thing you know it's 2am! Overall this is an outstanding title that will not disappoint anyone who enjoys this genre.
