GiantBomb: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Review

Brotherhood lacks that generational leap we saw from Assassin’s Creed to Assassin’s Creed II, but it more than makes up for that with a full-bodied single-player experience teeming with interesting gameplay additions and a risky multiplayer component. Even more surprising than the single-player experience is the addition of a competitive multiplayer game that, through some downright acrobatic contrivances, manages to make the cat-and-mouse core of the single-player work with live opponents.

Ubisoft tries to say that guards can't swim in Brotherhood because of their armour, but NPCs in Ass Creed 2 couldn't swim and Ezio can obviously swim with full armor on, so yeah, nice try nerds. Brotherhood is amazing, but only 2 hours in and I'm picking apart the lack of sneaking abilities and a cover system...Come on guys, get with the program. Really, I can't crouch or hide behind walls in an Assassin game? Take a little more from the Thief and Metal Gear franchises and you'll have a perfect game. I'm also waiting for Rockstar to add a Native American swimming master that teaches John Marsden to swim in Red Dead.
