The multiplayer in Assassins Creed Brotherhood is as addicting as it is annoying. I love the feeling of a perfectly executed assassination and escape, but cant stand getting assassinated immediately after I kill someone… which happens to be almost every time.

So how does multiplayer work in a game like Assassins Creed Brotherhood? Simple, everyone is a regular looking person with ninja skills, you can run around the map just like single player, crawling walls etc, except your only weapon is the hidden blade. That’s right, no epic sword fights here. This means all of your kills are instantaneous, and give you a nice slow motion cut scene – kind of a double edged sword. While it is satisfying to watch the Courtesan’s neck get broken over and over, it can lead to some problems – getting stabbed in the neck right after exposing your identity as an assassin.

Look at me! I killed you discretely while you sat on a bench BUT LOL IM FLYING LIKE BATMAN AT YOUR FACE HAHAHA THIS IS HOW ASSASSINS CREED MULTIPLAYER WORKS
