Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is a lovely game, that is familiar to it's predecessor, only better. Sure it gets kind boring within several days, but the new apprentice assassins were pretty cool. I liked having sidekicks on my own and let them do the dirty work while I silently kill my opponent.
You could say that they're the improvements of thieves and prostitutes of the previous game. Overall an engaging game I liked and I can actually recommend this AC title.
