I am the best of the best, and I am Assassin's Creed for a reason. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is a brilliant game from start to finish. Assassin's Creed adds some of the story elements present in previous games while improving on the mechanics, creating a concept of assassination and exploration that weaves itself into the gameplay without having to use cumbersome cutscenes. It's big brother, Assassin's Creed 2 is still hands down one of the greatest games of all time. Assassin's creed III also packs the same level of creativity and intrigue. Assassin's Creed has a lot going on for it, whether it's new characters, new situations, new missions, or new locations and it's a fantastic addition to the Assassin's Creed universe and franchise.
In Brotherhood, Connor is a young Assassin, who travels to Morocco in search of his missing mother. Having tracked her there, he discovers that she was promised in marriage to the Pharaoh. He also meets a young girl, Haytham Kenway (Haytham in short, h to fans) while he is there, and she becomes a surrogate mother to him, and a friend all at once. This leads to a sequence of events that bind the entire story together, and will make sense to those who have played previous games. Of course, there are a few other characters who play a role in the overall story, but let's start from the beginning, shall we?
The game remains in 3rd person, and moves in leaps, with some spotting. The telescoping doesn't bother me, but it's something that probably bothers almost all players. Assassin's Creed and Brotherhood made great use of the environment to hide and move whilst engaged in an assassination, and this is continued here, as you have skulking squirrels to hide behind, and dead worms to stick to as you use the environment to your advantage. d2c66b5586
