I started getting into the AC series earlier this year when there were no new games coming out. I enjoyed the combat in the first one and liked how they gave you a new story in the second.
Brotherhood, while the story picks up where the last one left off, is the same game with new environments and collectables.
I have 2 'cons' for this game:
1. Maybe AC:R and AC3 change this but my biggest complaint for this game (and series really) is the blocking. No one would survive the number of hacks Enzio takes. 'Sleeping Dogs' & 'Batman: AC' have the best 'counter' system. If Assassins Creed could implement this (even if it means raising the difficulty a bit), it would probably go into my top 10 game franchises for me.
2. This game needs difficulty levels. Force me to be more stealthy instead of getting lucky to run through some missions or escaping standard chases.
Def worth a rent and probably worth buying too since there's endless things to do.

This actually was the 2nd game in my Q but they sent me it first. I loved the 1st and 2nd AC and this was even better. Lots of cool stuff to do if you don't feel like doing the missions. Cant wait to get AC:Revalations
