I picked up Brotherhood yesterday (in Australia here) and am enjoying it immensely so far; so much so that I felt compelled to share my thoughts on the forums! The multiplayer portion of the game is simply amazing and so so unique. It's intense always having to watch your back, the focus on stealth rather than blatantly running around like a madman is great, and the overall premise is simply innovative!
From a more technical standpoint, my connection has been flawless the whole time and I've experienced no lag problems whatsoever (which is incredible, since I generally have problems being in Australia).
Back to the gameplay; as I said, it's incredibly fun and (much to my satisfaction) is not simply tacked on to the game. I've had some great moments so far, too! I generally play as the Doctor if available (because he's just too cool, and I happen to have an actual mask of the doctor from Venice!) and, in one particular match I was doing quite well. I had 2 people pursuing me, so I decided to sit down on a bench next to an NPC Doctor. As I sat there, I watched both pursuers run straight past me and each of them stabbed a different NPC Doctor; I then casually got up and walked away unscathed.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to having many more intense moments with the multiplayer portion of the game!
Feel free to share your positive opinions here too! While constructive criticism is always great, I think it's just as relevent to show appreciation where it's due.
glad to know! i'm here in the states and I was so heartbroken after they removed spies .vs. mercenaries in Splinter Cell i refused to buy it. its nice to know that wit, strategy and tactics in multiplayer is making a return!
Yay, for once someone that isn't complaining about the gameplay lol. I love this mp as well, I was turned off from multiplayer for a long time because they were all the same and I didn't like that you just run around killing whatever walks, there's no challenge in that...
