From our Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2010: Video Games:
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood picks up where the last game left off, with Ezio trying to figure out what just happened at the end of the last game. Not much time passes before a devastating attack is unleashed on Monteriggioni, the home of your uncle that you moved to with your family in Assassin’s Creed II, forcing you to run off to Rome.
The massive city that was only teased to us last time, but this time we’ll be free to explore it relentlessly, making new allies and preparing to find the man who attacked and uncover more answers to the mysteries of the Apple of Eden.
The game also introduces its own online multiplayer option, allowing players to run around these beautiful cities of old, trying to assassinate each other. This is a welcome change from the popular run and gun multiplayer games.
