Top 9 cities in the Assassin’s Creed games

3. Rome (Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood)

Brotherhood took the Assassin’s Creed series to Rome. This new Italian setting was great and filled with detail, letting you climb monuments like the Pantheon and the Colosseum, which were rendered in wonderful detail here.

The game also continued Ezio’s story. He’s after the Borgias in this game, in particular the hot-headed Cesare, who demolishes Monteriggioni (you know, Ezio’s home base in part 2) early in the game. You also got to control the Brotherhood and issue orders to fellow assassins in Rome, spreading the mantra that nothing is true, and everything is permitted…

As usual, Desmond’s story continues, with his present-day troupe of Assassins searching for a Piece of Eden in Italy. And this game also ends with one of the most shocking revelations in gaming history, surely making Brotherhood a great follow-up to the classy Assassin’s Creed II.

Why we loved Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood’s Rome: Trekking through Brotherhood’s Rome is the next best thing to booking a trip to the real city. Plus here you get to see Rome in all its Renaissance splendour, enjoying monuments like the Colosseum and the Pantheon in their pristine condition in this great Assassin’s Creed game.
