Building on the successful AC2, AC Brotherhood follows Ezio Auditore in his ongoing quest to express his feelings toward English Lit by stabbing, shooting, and poisoning everyone from poorly directed guard characters lifted directly from a Shakespeare play to sinister Italian men in tights.
AC Brotherhood introduces a major change in the ability to bring one's horse into the city. Yes, rejoice! You can now focus on important things like bringing democracy and freedom to Rome's denizens without being burdened about said denizens' freedom to safely cross the street!
Veterans familiar with the series won't find anything new with this one-trick pony, history buffs might recoil at the revisionist treatment of famous historical figures, and Ubisoft's game launcher remains awkward. But there's nothing more satisfying than running down 15th century blackguards and ruthlessly punishing them for nothing if not their poor choice in wardrobe.
