Should most of the Borgia die for their crimes against the Assassins and Rome, or can history-making be left to others? If you want an assassination done right, you have to do it yourself. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is a very enjoyable and well-made game, offering a solid gameplay experience. It also introduces many mechanics we see in the later games, and some important story information. That being said though, I will say it is not as good as Assassin's Creed II (yes, I finally mention it by name. I did not want too many 'Assassin's Creeds' in the text to possibly confuse people). The older game offers an outstanding story while Brotherhood stands out primarily for its new mechanics, in my opinion. The story is not bad, but not of the same caliber. It would not reduce the game by calling it supplemental material though; it deserves better than that. Just recognize where its strength truly lies: the gameplay experience and not the story.
