The gameplay is the same style as Assassin's Creed II and you play as the smooth talking Italian named Ezio. You are required to complete a series of missions involving the assassination of targets using your hidden blade, the infiltration of buildings and the collecting of items.
The free running is perfectly fluid allowing you to scale the highest buildings or dart up nearby scaffolding to escape your pursuers. The sprinting and jumping controls feel very natural and intuitive making for a satisfying gaming experience.
Other additions to the gameplay include the ability to restore buildings such as banks and shops in the in-game environment. These can then earn you money which can then be spent on items such as weapons and armour. This is a nice addition to the game as it poses the question to the gamer whether to invest and build a business empire or to purchase armour and weapon upgrades.
Additionally you have the option to save citizens which can then be trained up and used to help you in the battle against the opposition. There's a wide variety of other opportunities available to the gamer to keep them entertained - for example you can collect the scrolls of Romulus or complete one of the many side missions.
Graphically Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is very similar to its predecessor. You can expect wonderfully crafted buildings and stunning landscapes aplenty. Clearly a lot of work has gone into the construction of this game to make it look so brilliant.
Another major positive of this game is the excellent multiplayer.Read more ›
And it still controls like Assassin's Creed. Same control-mapping, same functions and largely the same mechanics. Which, in my opinion, is a good thing...to a point.
The problem is, with exactly the same controls, comes exactly the same problem: namely, the camera. It is still too slow when traversing the environment, especially when against the clock or chasing a target. When going in a straight line - whether vertically or horizontally - it's no big deal, but any change of direction, without manually adjusting the camera (not easy when holding 'sprint'), and you'll inevitably crash into an ambling pedestrian/horse/guard, be stuck against a wall, or jump clean off a building, plummeting to a painful landing or target-losing splash.
Worse still is when the camera suddenly shifts to a fixed point when you're giving chase. This happens too often and, every time it does, the directional control shifts with it causing you to fall and fail your first attempt at almost every chase.Read more ›
The story itself (despite being a bit crazy) is quite engrossing and that drives a lot of the desire to progress in the game. The Rome map is pretty large and offers a huge amount to do, more assassination missions, climbing and general fighting.
The addition of the Borgia towers and Assassin's brotherhood really make the game more enjoyable. These are sorts of side quests which have a really big impact on the main missions (making them much easier). There's nothing more fun then to call in 6 assassins to aid you in a fight or stand back and watch from on a rooftop while your brethren take out the target. The new crossbow weapon is a great tool for silent kills although it does make some sequences very straightforward.
Overall, this is a great game, which while not being much of a leap ahead, is still a fantastic game in its own right (likely because AC2 was so good).
