With its historical accuracy and electrifying narrative about modern-day politics, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood breaks new ground.
Historical accuracy ?????. She talks about modern day politics but she seams to be over conceptualising the game. Its has a great story but modern day political points in the game is a bit iffy. Good game shame about the old game engine but still a good game not the best ever. Hope AC3 has some big improvements
They got the whole Borgia and Templar conflict wrong I vote Red Dead: Redemption for the best videogame of all time.
Actually I would have thought ACII was more important/better regarding it's story, with things such as the Pazzi conspiracy against the Medici, Savonarola (although really it didn't do the whole story of Savonarola justice), and of course the Borgia's and Rodrigo Borgia's rise to power to become Alexander VI. Oh and she claims it's the best videogame ever, and doesn't even mention one little line about the gameplay. Go on, just get out.
AC:B is a good game, no denying that, but best game ever? I can think of dozens of games that have better stories and characters. Each to their own, the writer obviously adores the game (and I can see why, I suppose) but lavishing it with this amount of praise seems over enthusiastic lol
Cool opinion, sis.
It was decent, no way it's the best game ever.
Everyone has their own best game. No need to bash other peoples opinions.
Thats alot of bafta's i honestly didint think it was THAT good, but it was a great game but AC2 was better in my opinion i just think AC:B had some great improvements and the amount of articles in that game got me interested in Italy's History...
I love the AC series to bits, but I can tell from her article she probably doesnt even know what console its played on, let alone having played it for herself. Best game ever? No, sure top 10, but there are a dew other better ones.
I can tell you why its not.
But not the best game of all time.
Not the best game of all time, but a good game that I genuinely really enjoyed! It is a franchise that I hope continues on, and I hope that they build a new engine and really push it to perhaps actually be one of the best games of all time, it certainly has the potential. I like the story and political intrigue side of it. And to be honest there are enough historical era's that if they regularly update the engine and gameplay that they can keep the game feeling fresh.
2 things. 1)Historically accurate? No not even close. You can't take names, settings, street designs, etc. and call your game historically accurate. Nothing in this game gives any true idea of life in Renaissance Italy. 2)Give serious props to the dev's for realizing that basing this as much upon historical events or settings as possible would really breathe life into their game. They did fantastic in that regard. It was a great game for me personally. Loved it. But that doesn't mean I will call it what it is not. Based upon historical events/people/places and historically accurate are two wildly different things.

Eve online?? Not in the top 50 in my book
I disagree and the reason why is I can't think of another MMO where the gamers decide what goes on in the gaming Universe. Sure most MMO's allow you to group up and go fight the enemy or form factions but in Eve Online everyone is on ONE server (not separated in different realms like WOW) and everything you do has an effect on the Universe. Eve has NO rules except get money build an empire and survive either through war or forming treaties but be careful spies are everywhere. AWESOME player driven game.
