Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is a third person action-adventure video game with main emphasis on sandbox style gameplay in an open world of Italy. Like the previous installments, the gameplay's core mechanics are based on parkour movements, crowd-blending stealth, assassinations and melee fighting system. The combat system features several improvements and for the first time in the series, the game offers a multiplayer mode alongside 40+ hours of single-player gameplay.
GamePro: Though delayed, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood shines on the PC. Brotherhood adds a rich new chapter to the tale of the war between the Templars and the Assassins. Plus, according to our reviewer Andrew Hayward, the new multiplayer modes are an absolute blast. Read Full Review
PC World: "In the course of reviewing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, the third instalment in the popular franchise, I took some time to reflect on what makes this particular series so popular.
Sure you can extol the game for many things. Great gameplay, awesome voice acting and the occasional steamy sex scenes are just a few of them. But what gives the games that X factor?
I think I know what it is. Ninjas." Read Full Review
The Escapist: "It's important that you know right from the start that I really loved Assassin's Creed 2. I loved the Italian Renaissance settings, I loved the Grand Theft Auto-meets-Spider Man gameplay, and I even loved the sci-fi/art appreciation/historical thriller plot. The only downside was that the game ended right in the middle of the action. Now, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood picks up the story again, delivering all the things I loved about the original game, and a few new surprises as well." Read Full Review
FTG: During E3, when Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was first announced, and Ubisoft showed off the idea of a multiplayer component, I couldn’t believe it could ever work. In the months leading up to Brotherhood’s launch, I became hyped to the idea of the way the multiplayer was developed and was prepared to buy the game for this mostly-multiplayer game. When I picked up Brotherhood, I was surprised to see the full-length single player game that wasn’t just copied and pasted from Assassin’s Creed 2. Read Full Review
CVG: Overall, Brotherhood is an awesome package with enough new content to kill the competition this Christmas.Story limitations and a few failed mission experiments cement our statement that it's not Assassin's Creed 3 - but with a lick of paint it would've come dangerously close.There's enough quality and scope here to put Brotherhood in the running not just as a top Christmas purchase, but one of the best action games of the year.

IGN: There's a lot to like; the game is undeniably solid, while the multiplayer offers a unique experience. The game runs well on a modest modern gaming rig, and while the graphics aren't bleeding edge, it's hard not to be impressed by the scale of its recreation of Rome. PC owners also benefit from the inclusion of all the DLC to date out of the box. If you’re new to Assassin’s Creed, this is a solid entry, but picking up the threads of the convoluted story may be a challenge. If you’re an experienced assassin, on the other hand, expect to tread pretty similar ground to the last title. Read Full Review
Drunk on Judgement: If you didn’t play Assassin’s Creed 2 then you might be a little lost as far as the storyline in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. At the end of Assassin’s Creed 2 Ezio escaped the grasp of the evil Templars. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood still has Desmond Miles occupying the Animus virtual reality device in the shoes of Ezio Auditore. Ezio is now trying to defeat the Borgia and the Templars to rebuild Rome. Read Full Review
GamingBolt.com: "The magic of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has finally arrived for our PC loving brethren, but removing unpopular DRM schemes and including free DLC is not enough to justify a rather underwhelming port filled with glitches, bugs and issues galore" Read Full Review
