OK, so I didn’t get the all-singing, all-dancing Codex edition direct from the Ubishop (it was £14.99, but they cancelled my order), but I did get the standard edition for £8.28-ish, so it’s not bad. Blimey. This £18 Rule has addled my head – I used to think £30 was cheap for a game!
I’ve played about the first hour or so of Brotherhood now. It carries on directly from the previous game, and there’s a quite clever sequence where you lose most of your weapons, armour and health points from the previous game, which is better than in other games where it is unexplained, or something.
At the moment, I’m in Monteriggioni – as Desmond. Which is awesome. I’d be very surprised if a later Assassin’s Creed game isn’t almost entirely Desmond. Anyway, it’s great so far!
EDIT: Haha! Look!
