Title
+ Great narrative sequel to AC II.
- One of the first attempts at tedious base-capture mechanics by Ubisoft.

Completed.

Title
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood - Nintendo Switch
So, take Assassin's Creed II, take out all the major blemishes, give Ezio his coolest Assassin Robe, and you're done. It's pretty much the same game, just better. There's really not much to it. Switch version ran perfectly well. I don't know what else to say really. I guess Cesare is a very fun villain, something that AC II can't say. He's probably the best villain in the series. Just fun and hateable, and his slow breakdown is really satisfying.

Title
Less is more?
I’ve seen this game described that way a lot, and yeah it is less... but what the fuck do people mean by more? More what? More shitty tailing missions? In this 8-10 hour game I think I’ve spent at least 4 hours either following people or escorting people, in AC2 it was barely like 3-5 missions where you did this, here it's like half of them and it gets old fast.

Also while the brotherhood mechanic is cool and all I think it could have been better if these weren’t just randomly generated characters, would have been cool to just have 5-10 side quests on the map where you meet a character and make them join your cause instead of an infinite amount of bland nothing characters that you don’t really become attached too and seeing them die is more of a matter of going oh well I guess I’ll have to go find a new one after the mission is done rather than anything.

I was really disappointed by this game, I had never finished it till today and honestly I find it strange that a lot of fans hold this as the best game in the franchise. Not saying that’s not a valid opinion I just personally don’t see it, it takes AC2 and just does it again but with a more focused plot that lasts 10 hours instead of 20-30.
Still there’s strong points here, the story is great...and everything that was good from AC2 came back so 95% of your enjoyment depends on whether you liked Ezio to begin with and whether you liked AC2 in general, granted that shouldn’t be much of an issue I think most people would agree that Ezio is an amazing character and AC2 is a great game.

The modern day storyline is a bit worse than in 2 imo, mostly because there’s more of it and I find Desmond to be bland as fuck, Lucy and Rebeca just sorta exist, everytime they try to make a joke I kinda cringe though, and then there’s Shaun which I actually dig, idk I find his sarcastic remarks and jokes funny. Def the one saving grace of this section of the game.

I found the parkour to be slightly worse, idk just didn’t feel as good as in 2, the one thing I’ll give this game and not to AC2 is that the combat is much better and the stealth is also a bit better.

Good game and good sequel, but nothing that great or impressive if you’ve already played 2.

Title
More of the Same, Give or Take
After coming out with the great Assassin's Creed II, there were a few different directions the series could have headed. A new setting was of course mandatory to keep interest up, possibly a different time period with a new cast. However, following the high praise that Ezio garnered, Brotherhood is a direct continuation of his story. Rather than taking place in Venice, Ezio travels to Rome in the late 1400's to finish what he started with the Borgia family, and to uncover more secrets about the distant past.

Brotherhood is, by and large, incredibly similar to II. Most features make a return, with a few alterations to keep things interesting for series veterans. Now, instead of maintaining a single villa, Ezio can invest in the economy of Rome as a whole by purchasing and opening businesses or landmarks. This allows for a steady flow of income that increases the more you invest. Alongside this is the assassins recruitment system, where you can bring on new assassins and send them off to perform distant tasks, or have them aid you in battle. These two additions add quite a bit of content, though your mileage on how enjoyable you find them will vary considerably. There is also a new multiplayer mode which I have not played, and can not comment on.

One of the biggest reasons to appreciate Brotherhood is the absolutely gorgeous new setting of Rome. Assassin's Creed II was generally a very urban game, barring a small bit of countryside in Flori. Brotherhood gives you the city of Rome, the Vatican, and a bit of the surrounding Rome countryside including the Colosseum to explore. It's breathtaking. Some of the best sites in the franchise up to this point take place in this game, whether you're running across ancient aqueducts or exploring hot springs. It's undoubtedly the most colorful Assassin's Creed game yet, and I spent more time than I'd like to admit simply running through the countryside, enjoying the light soundtrack.

In terms of missions, the variety has been spread out a little bit. Standard side assassinations still exist, now being dolled out by the mercenaries guild. Other missions are sprinkled across the thieves and courtesans guilds, featuring tailing missions, races, beat ups, and some new attempts at side missions. Still, the meat of the content is in the main story itself. One exception is the Leonardo Da Vinci missions. Reprising his role from the previous game, Leonardo has been contracted by the Borgia's to create new weapons of war, and he's asked you to help destroy them. Generally, these missions are actually pretty fun, as they all give you the chance to get behind the wheel and try these war machines out. A prototype machine gun, tank, skiff, and bomber are all yours to seek, use, and then destroy. They're mostly fun, though a couple of them control a little too awkwardly for you to wish for more by the end.

The modern day portions of Brotherhood remain traditionally dull, but do have a few surprises, as the Animus is now set up in the villa from Assassin's Creed II. This callback is a welcome setting, as you are allowed to leave the Animus and explore the villa, now with modern day amenities to a degree. Still, there's little reason to do this when the Ezio portions of the game are the clear meat. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is so similar to II, that it becomes difficult to ascertain whether it's better or worse for it. If you really just wanted more II in your life, then Brotherhood is the game for you.

Pretty much every sight of creativity the series had ended here. Awful plot and even worst script, just a shallow pretext to visit some pre-conceived time and place.

    the online multiplayer game modes were actually tons of fun. i recall the matchmaking system being absolutely horrid though. i wonder if it's still fairly active? probably not.

    brotherhood is pretty much more of the same from the first game. it added a few things here and there, but there's nothing exceptionally different or unique about this entry.

    it gets a C from me.
