Assassins Creed 2 had left me with one complaint..combat. The laughable AI would wait to strike you when there were twelve of them and one of you. Very amusing. The story, the playability, the characters, all are amazing and Assassins Creed B-Hood has stepped up to the plate. The combat is fantastic: when you get yourself used to the button combos, you are unstoppable.
The new recruits that Ezio can hire throughout the game remind you of Ezio himself when you started in AC2; a fed up ticked off citizen who is only looking for revenge for the wrong that has been done to him or her, and watching them evolve into a deadly assassin is gold for me. To be able to call for help in times of need, and sometimes just plain fun, is outstanding. Nothing makes you laugh more then when some disgruntled archer is screaming at you to get off the roofs and you just reaise your arm and he is dealt with. Its even better when you cant see your own recruit taking care of suck business.
The story is as always fantastic and keeps you glued to the TV screen so you can suck up all the info leading to the next installment. Subject 16 is back and things are made a bit more clear to Desmonds crew. The weapon all have their own animations and using every one will be one of the highlights for me as replay-ability comes into the fray.
Do not think about pressing the keep button on this one folks, AC Bhood will be a favorite in your collection for a very long time. The multiplayer is fun for me even though i am still new to that, hunting down other fellow gamers or friends is much more satisfying than shooting them from across the map.
If you are still second guessing on making AC a permanant staple in your gamer diet, then move on. I on the other hand, am chomping at the bit for AC3

I loved brotherhood everybit as much as i loved AC II amazingly fun & adicting games. I did not however feel like platinuming this one, i just didnt want to take the time to find all those dang flags, but still dang fun.
The story as always keeps you thinking long after the game is over
The added assassins was fun
gameplay as fun as ever
The ONLY thing wrong with this game is the same as what was wrong with all the other assassins creed games the controlls while jumping are just frustratingly bad. Jump to the left & Ezio jumps to the middle & falls down making you start the whole sequence all over! If that wasnt present i would give this game a 10 & i never give games a 10
So let me first start off by saying that I am a huge fan of the Assassins Creed franchise. Assassins Creed was amazing, and Assassins Creed 2 was even better. I was a little scared that them using Brotherhood as an extension to Ezio's story would be boring. The first few sequences it looked as if my suspicions were going to be true. It was fairly fun and had the same feel as 2 but with some pretty nice add ons. Such as horseback riding anywhere you want, and the Borgia tower idea was pretty igenious. But it seemed to be missing something, I couldnt tell what that was untill I stared to gather followers. This give you the ability to send your Assassins brothers to assassinate any enemy. This sealed the deal for me, its hard to say yet but so far it gets a 10. Great plot, great gameplay, and the controller dynamics are greatly improved. A possible buy and for sure a must rent!!!
