Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Guide
Unofficial Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Guide by CM Boots-Faubert for SuperCheats.com
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is the third installment of the epic story of a modern day misfit named Desmond Miles who is cursed with being the child of a long line of Assassins. The direct sequel to Assassin's Creed 2, the main character and protagonist is Desmond, and his Italian Renaissance Era relation, one Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
Ezio, a young nobleman, is at the very heart of the story and its many plots that surround objects of significant historical value that also happen to be imbued with supernatural powers. Were they to fall into the hands of the modern day Templar organization who actively seeks them, it would allow them to rule the world, so a band of modern day Assassins -- the descendents of a long line dating back to the organization in Italy that gave the word its true meaning -- have set out to resist the Templar plan.
Desmond was introduced along with his historical counterpart when the Templar (in the modern day form of employees of a massive global corporation called Abstergo Industries) kidnapped him. They wanted him because, locked within his DNA was the genetic memory of every person whose bloodline he is a part of, and a key number of those people know the location of the supernatural objects that have been lost in time.
Meeting Desmond Miles
Abstergo has developed a machine, called the Animus, that allows them to send people back into those genetic memories, literally building a virtual world that puts them into the memory, its era, and its events, where they can participate in and alter them. More important to the Templar, the test subject inside the Animus can return from it in full possession of the memories that they have just explored, one of which they hope will include the hiding place for these objects.
Brotherhood is a classic third-person shooter set in a sandbox-style world that offers the player the sort of game immersion that is a rare and welcome part of modern gaming. The series is well known for its excellent musical scores, its depth of play and plot, and the wide-open paths that are available to the player to solve what turn out to be largely rail-based missions. The clever use of the environment and kit in the game succeed in masking the rail-based structure to the point that players often feel that they devised the solution, rather than simply met the criteria required for them to succeed.
Brotherhood is destined to be one of the games that you add to your game collection shelf and your regular play rotation, because the multi-player side combined with what is anticipated to be an aggressive DLC program should have you returning often. This is probably not a game that will follow the original into the used game section of your local GameStop, in other words.
PlayStation 3 owners will be pleased to learn that they have been provided with additional system-exclusive content for the game. Called the Copernicus Conspiracy, the DLC includes additional missions and content that is not present in the other versions of the game.
