As­sasin’s Creed: Broth­er­hood

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - ASSASIN'S CREED ODYSSEY -

De­vel­oper Ubisoft Mon­treal / re­lease 2010

A mere year af­ter ACII, Broth­er­hood stealth­ily avoids sub­stan­dard se­quel ter­ri­tory. As Des­mond and co hunt an Ap­ple of Eden in the mod­ern day, Ezio trav­els to Rome. Keep­ing the ac­tion in one city never feels re­stric­tive as there are plenty of new toys to play with. Com­bat up­grades add sat­is­fy­ingly gory chained counter kills, you get a help­ful crew of stab-on-de­mand As­sas­sins, and the se­ries gets its first fast travel sys­tem and a tense mul­ti­player mode. Free ar­eas from ne­far­i­ous Bor­gia con­trol and Rome is a fixer-up­per, as you pay to re­pair shops and util­i­ties. It all adds up to a sand­box loop as plea­sur­able as hunt­ing down Ce­sare Bor­gia.
