Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is an action-adventure game developed by Ubisoft released in 2010. The game is the direct sequel to Assassin's Creed II and is part of the Assassin's Creed series of games.

The story of Brotherhood is set in 16th century Italy, with the player taking on the role of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a master assassin. After the events of the previous game, Ezio travels to Rome to confront the Templar Order, led by the villain Caesar Borgia, who seeks to dominate the city and consolidate his power. The game focuses on rebuilding the Assassin Brotherhood, where Ezio recruits and trains new members to fight the Templars. The player takes control of not only Ezio, but can also manage the brotherhood, sending members on missions and helping to expand the Assassins' influence.

In addition to the main story missions, the game features a variety of side activities such as territory acquisition, restoration of historic sites, recruitment missions, and combat challenges.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood features faster, less tiring combat and more brutal combat endings compared to previous games. The game's tutorial is not forced and leaves the player completely free at the beginning of the game. I have to highlight yours andxcellent setting where we find locations very identical to reality, in addition to bons sound effects and a soundtrack faithful to the historical context.

The way in which Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood makes the protagonist quickly travel around the map is very well designed and makes a lot of sense with the historical context, it was very well thought out and helps a lot with the dynamism of the game. The possibility of making investments in stores is one of the fastest ways to acquire money in the game. In Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood you can Calling your horse from anywhere on the map is a new addition to the franchise, but it can be very difficult to get around the villages. Still talking about horses, at times its movement is very slow and the animal is floating, nothing that interferes with the gameplay but here is my observation.

The option to call assassins to help fight enemies is a very effective and necessary help most of the time, it was a new mechanic that greatly improved combat and made the game more fluid. All the action and adventure capacity of The game is saved for the end, with a cinematic and grandiose outcome.

The experience of playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood also has serious errors such as its artificial intelligence, which presents worrying flaws, compromising the immersion from the beginning. Additionally, issues related to the game's physics arise, although they are not a significant obstacle, considering the technology of the time in which the game was released.

The puzzles within the game lack difficulties and the player does not find any challenge and one aspect that bothered me a lot is the Synchronization moment, where the percentage displayed on the screen ends up interrupting the player's experience. The prolonged white screen during this process, along with the characters' speeches in the background, are distracting and take away from the fluidity of the narrative.

As for the outcome of the plot, the game disappoints in the lack of challenge. The boss is easily defeated, which deprives the player of an epic and challenging moment, with an outcome that requires no effort or strategy.
