I have rented this program for the past 3 weeks. I have enjoyed the game play and have not found anything negative. It is an excellent action/skill based program with a ton of fun. I plan to buy this program this week as I do not want to be without it in my gaming library.
I strongly recommend this game and see why it is the game of the year

Out of all the 13 years I've lived, I have 8 favorite games:
1. Uncharted 2 2. God of War 3 3. Assassin's Creed 2 4. Modern Warfare 2 5. Black Ops 6. Assassin's Creed 2.5 7. Little Big Planet 8. Red Dead Redemption
This games have been released between the time of November, 2009 to just about last week. I don't have an absolute favorite, but that doesn't matter. It's time to focus on Brotherhood. See, I'm only 13, so of course I didn't get the game to pay attention to the storyline of the Medieval times, but what I've seen is a very detailed story.
Assassin's Creed 2 introducing Ezio, descendant of Altair, a member of creed of Assassins. Since 2007, Assassin's Creed has changed tremendously, but it goes up and down in story a little. Brotherhood was made because AC2 was awesome, and people wanted more. The story was just to keep it alive. I kind of thought the end of AC2 was kind silly, though it was also awesome. Haha.
About the same as Uncharted 2, but not GOW3. They're highly detailed. And to keep the whole game fun and entertaining, like GTA, the glitches in this game are hilarious. Try assassinating a Borgia soldier next to his horse, you freeze in mid air, and you automatically have control over the soldier. If you are hiding behind a building and come out of the shadows light will reflect of you're armor and shadows will be shone over you. The landscape also looks really beautiful.
This game has about everything you could possibly want. It's an RPG, platformer, stealth, shooter, and action/adventure. This game is a big difference from AC2. You start all over rebuilding armor and the city of Rome. You can now ride your Horse in the cities, and you can take tunnels across the map. They're are also lifts that help majorly in escape from soldiers. This game is probably bigger than AC2. It takes up lots of space. So don't expect JUST a short 2.5 it's more like AC3 with a 3.5 put into it.
Everything was improved in this version. Combat is streamlined and made easier but this in fact is easily overlooked as it makes you feel like the real master killer you should be.
Platforming controls are better along with countless improvements and RPG elements added that make parts of this game much more interesting. Thing such as "view points" and other annoying features have been greatly improved and finally been made bearable. Multiplayer also is a lovely addition, while I not for me personally. All in all this game is much improved on basically every level and graphics have been improved as well.
The one reason this game fails in comparison to AC2, the story. This game fails to deliver a meaningful or high impact story of the last game. The ending left a cliffhanger feeling, much like AC2, except this was built up rather poorly and left much to be desired. Not to mention none of it was overly exciting to see.
Bottom line, this is a solid game. Certainly worth a rent if you want to play the story and may actually be worth a buy if your that in to the multiplayer. Sadly, the story just doesn't do it for me.
Hopefully AC3 will bring the story of the game back to the light.
