Assassins creed brotherhood is part of the assassins creed franchise. For those of you who do not know the general gist behind assassins creed, its about a group of people called the templars, who want everyone to follow them. A mystic weapon known as the apple of eden can be used to make people do what you want them to do. if they aquire this, then they will rule humankind. One force stands in their way, the assassins. The assassins must locate the apple before the templars do. In order to find its whereabouts, they have found Desmund, a decentant of the assassins. Using a special machine, they can read his genetic memories from his ancestors, and try to locate the apple of eden before it is too late.
Anyway, the game is all about being sneaky, killing guards, assassinating people with these cool weapons (spring knives, throwing knives, poisoned knives... a lot of knives basically. Also there is a big freerunning element to the game, which is really cool. What I like about it is that it feels so instinctive, but at the same time you feel like you are holding on for dear life!
Anyway, the game adds some new things to the genre. For example, you can build a brotherhood of assassins to help you out, and by pressing whatever button you have call assasins as, you can bring your assassins to help you out in fights. It makes it really easy and you feel like you are part of some crack elite squad or something.
I have never personally played online multiplayer, so i cannot comment on that... sorry.
Another new thing about this game is the weapons. Ezio now gets a pistol, which he can draw mid fight as a "secondary", which is really fun to pull out and blast away any pesky horseback riders you can't be bothered to melee with.
overall, this is a great game, but I honestly can't say that it is vastly different from previous assassin creed games. However, there was nothing really wrong with these games, so i guess they didnt have to change much to still have a great game!
