GN: Despite playing through both of the first two Assassin's Creed games, I wouldn't call myself a huge fan. While I respect what Ubisoft is trying to do, I had a hard time falling into love with some of its annoying quirks. Thanks to the emphasis on a new multiplayer mode and the return to 16th Century Italy, I fully expected to have another so-so time with Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. But that isn't the case. I came away from this newest installment reinvigorated and ready for the inevitable Assassin's Creed III.
