    Just got this opening day! True, its story definitely doesn't compare to the epicness that was Assassin's Creed 2, but it adds more that enough improvements to make up for it. Great review for an awesome game!

    What the hell Mikel, only a 9? This definitely deserves a 10, especially because these are my favorite games of the past few years. Just kidding. Thanks for the good info. I'll definitely have to pick a copy up when I can find a spare 60.

    @Z-man427: Yes. @freeyourthoughts: You'd think so, but it only lasts for like two seconds. So if you're not looking in the right direction when you set it off, there's a good chance you won't see anything useful and will have to wait for the ability to recharge.

    Haha! My mate owes me a fiver. I bet him ACB would be better than Fable 3. Can't wait for this game to come out in the UK :)

    Way better review than thay horrible and hypocritical gaming site called IGN, whic is why I left that site and came here. Not a fan of multiplayer but glad it has a heft SP campaign, and shows you can have a big SP campaign with MP, and MP should be quality over quantity. something that COD could look into.

    I don't have alot of money, but i loved AC2 so much i need this! It just snuck up so unexpectedly! Oh crap i just bought New Vegas and Pokemon Soul Silver... there goes my life.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying it, but some of the story elements seem a little strange. The biggest is "What is Ezio's motivation this time?" and the second being "Why did everyone move to Rome?" I'm really not digging the way the horse works. It runs too slowly and just feels like it's floating rather than running. But maybe I got spoiled with the horse in Red Dead Redemption. Another question I have about 1/3 or the way through is will Ezio get his second wrist blade back?

    I really wish I hadn't just spent the last of my cash on Black Ops.
  • JADENkOTOR - November 16, 2010 7:26 p.m.

    Better than Fable 3? Does anyone care about character development and story anymore??? This looks mildly entertaining at best but i will still rent it. Its just gotten too predictable for my liking.
  • chriszewski - November 16, 2010 7:19 p.m.

    Nice detailed review. This is why i come to this site... and for lovely Lebowski references.

    Great review waiting till Black Friday for a deal but i'm definatly more excited now!
  • Hotdiddykong - November 16, 2010 6:53 p.m.

    Ugh, whats up with the recent games having bugs? I guess that what happens when they focus TOO MUCH on "Realistic Graphics" Serves them right, I got over Fable 3's bugs so Im definitly gonna get over brotherhoods
  • garfunkling - November 16, 2010 6:24 p.m.

    Interesting. I like the idea of multi-player that isn't the typical run and gun style a lot of games seem to shoehorn in. I'm interested to see if it just becomes a big cluster f*ck once the unwashed masses get a hold of it.
