Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, this is the first game in the series that repeats the main character. I’m not sure whether it’s because Ezio was a much loved character or due to the fact they had a storyline set in stone for him, but I’d like to think they listened to fans who loved the guy. Without mentioning spoilers, this game picks up right from where AC2 ended, and allows you to continue the storyline directly from there. The game’s scale from the previous game is much larger allowing you to visit Renaissance Rome, which is pretty huge, and you visit famous sites like the Colosseum!
The game’s main storyline is fairly short, although it is counter-balanced well with side quests to do which extend the game by many hours. You can of course collect all collectibles within the game which is actually not too bad to do in this and not really too tedious, at the time when I last played this before PC, I 100% this on my Xbox 360, then again on PS3.
New characters also pop up in this game like the infamous Niccolò Machiavelli but old ones sadly pop up too like Desmond… Thankfully though, this is one of the games where Desmond doesn’t really pop up much at all (YAY!), so you get most of your time to play as Ezio in his fancy pants costumes! This game at the moment is only £14.99, which is another cheap Ubisoft game and on I rate rather highly to be honest, it’s also the first game in the series to feature multiplayer, and if you’ve never played one round of multiplayer AC, then you’re really missing out!
