If you’ve been keeping up with my gaming adventures in audio and text form, then you would’ve come across my thoughts on playing through Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. It was very enjoyable, but if I were to recommend one of the games in the series to a newcomer, I’d still suggest ACII out of the first three titles.
My gripe about the map of Rome not opening up until very late in the game is still a problem I have with Brotherhood. The story was a good continuation of Ezio’s adventures and I also had some fun besting times set by my friends in the obstacle courses.
I’m currently on Brotherhood’s sequel, Revelations, and I already had my first taste of the tower defense portion. I don’t think it’s going to go very well. I’ve never been a fan of tower defense games and this is clearly not the genre for its inclusion. Thankfully I’ll still have @D_Fleischmann on Twitter for encouragement. :)
The other game I played was Moon Diver. This Strider clone, made by the same man who did the original 1989 arcade game, is very grind heavy. It makes for a slow going affair which isn’t good in an action game.
I did find one character I liked of the four available and leveled to 46 and reached stage 12. Sadly your progression with each character is separated from the rest. This means Seyfert at stage 4 can’t play stage 12 even though Ourion has made it there. This separation and the slow grind deters you from playing more than one character. Also the laser turrets in later levels drain health very fast even if you have lots of it.
I don’t recommend Moon Diver. The newest Strider downloadable game seems to fair as a better gaming experience. Granted this was released three years prior.
