When Brotherhood's Multiplayer was first announced, I felt a surge of anger. I had always considered the Assassin's Creed franchise to be a purely single player experience and that was the way I liked it. The announcement of multiplayer made me feel like that would be the main draw of the game, and the Hardcore Single Player wouldn't be polished enough for all of us single player fans. Thus, I feel like I must know, in everyone else's opinion, what they thought of the multiplayer upon announcement and why.

Initial announcement: Wtf? Why? It wasn't really made to be multiplayer

Hearing stuff from E3: Damn, sounds freaking awesome.

Playing beta: OMFG THIS IS HORRIBLE WTF IT SUCKS AGAFGGHAGHADGHH

Toward the end of beta: Getting a little better after some fixes and tweaks that made a big difference....

Launch: Woot, this is pretty fun now!

Obviously AC being a single player experience for the last two games, the idea of a multiplayer felt daunting.

At first, i was a little confused to how it worked. Then i began to warm to the idea, however it could either be really good or really bad. I love the multiplayer now, but to be honest, there's no multiplayer like this out there, nothing to compare it to. Seen as though AC's loyal followers enjoyed the single player, the multiplayer was a risk, it could bring more players or it could lose some.

It was a risk, but one well taken.

You were like that? I was like this. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3alA2_RZZY)

But really I actually bought it for the multiplayer. I would of just rented the game otherwise.

I bought the 1st one because my friend said it was good and it was pretty cheap. I didn't even buy assassins creed 2, my friend just let me borrow it. So ye, I would of rented ac:b if their was no mulitplayer.

At first, I was like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbcctWbC8Q0).

But then after watching some trailers, I started liking it. I decided that as long as single player lived up to it's expectations, I would be happy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Off topic: Nice new sig, rocketxsurgeon. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I really warmed to the idea, but I wasn't sure how they'd make it work, but they pulled it off well.

I liked the sound of multiplayer since it adds something completely new to try.
When watching the video's for it i wasnt very keen on it and thought it looked boring... but i have been proved wrong, after playing it for a while i think its brilliant.

My intitial reaction was that it was a big no no. It's like putting multiplayer into a game like Alan Wake, it just didn't sound right. Before I saw the gameplay, all I could think of was "great, a button mashing sword fighter game where the guy who hits counter first wins."

But it's definitely proven its worth and has been far more fun that I imagined. And if Alan Wake can pull this off too, then throw some multiplayer all over that http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif.
