Kotaku: Review: Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Is The Best Assassin's Creed

The first Assassin's Creed was an interesting but repetitive experiment. Two years later, Assassin's Creed II was an improvement in almost all ways. One year later, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, woefully misunderstood prior to release, is arguably the best one yet.

The story is too old to be commented.

if its anything like the leap from 1 to 2 then 3 is going to be a blast. AC2 is one of my fave of 2009.

agreed I thought the first was pretty bad but I absolutely loved the 2nd, really hyped for this, more so than I was fallout NV and fable 3

cant wait to go back to renaissacne Italy again!!

Do people really view Assassin's Creed 2 as not being as repetitive as the first? Sure, it wasn't every bit as repetitive as the first, but you were still doing the same crap over and over.

Not to mention the game was incredibly easy...I'm a sucker for the renaissance period, so I'll be buying this regardless.

I agree, even though there was a wide array of missions compared to AC1, AC2 was still repetitive though not nearly as excruciating as AC1. Nevertheless, I enjoyed AC2 a lot, I only wish the fighting was revamped from the one button combat and the AI was still dumb. Most of the time I could just run up to my target and kill him without the need to blend or use any distractions.

cant wait to get my hands on this game anyway!

To be fair, aren't shooters you just doing the same thing over and over and shooting people....isn't GOW you just beating the crap out of everything? Sure there are combos but it's still the same thing over and over at it's core.

AC2 GREATLY improved the variety in the game as far as mission structure which is what everyone wanted....I feel like this team is slowly developing the perfect sandbox game (of this style anyway) and that AC3 is gonna be aces....this one looks to improve upon AC2 which is all you can ask

GoW3 was heavily downplayed as the "old same", too familiar gameplay if I remember correctly. AC2 came less than a year ago and it is sequel can only be the same gameplay slightly improved.

I will wait for the price drop. Still have Ass Creed 2 to play.
