the game follows gaming history from the earliest point of time with theGreat Game! Having a simulated game company is really interesting.
the game follows gaming history from the earliest point of time with the PC and Commodor(called differently in the game) and while the game does not entirely accurately simulate the experience, it does come close, which is pretty impressive for a game that on the surface is relatively simple.
on the surface its as simple as choosing the platform,Genre and name of the game.
but after playing for awhile its pretty clear that it is a little bit more complicated then just that.
you also run into the various events that real companies run into like Piracy(even in the legit version) but also little coding competitions within the company and the E3(called G3 in-game)
the game's various stages,markes as Offices,add some new interesting game elements everytime you enter a new one, like getting employees to work for you and making another division to your company to research stuff.
all-in-all. its pretty cool to see a game,simulating a game to this degree.
if you'r a fan of Game Dev Story,then you will love this. it has some of the elements but adds TONS AND TONS of new gameplay elements that will make the experience a worthwhile endovour.… Expand

the biggest new thing being Bombs,whichassassin's creed is as good as ever,but this installment lacks any major inovation a sequel needs.
the biggest new thing being Bombs,which quite frankly,the game can do without.and feels more like an excuse to scatter material for it everywhere.another new thing is the hookblade which is a cool trinket but isnt enough to warrant a sequel. no what apparently is warranting this sequel is the story..which is in general lackluster except for the missions directly involving the masyaf keys that drive the whole plot to begin with. with all these complaints,you probably wonder why i would still give it this number. well thats because revelations is still a assassin's creed game,it still has the solid free-running and assassinations and it still maintains stealth as getting in the easier kills(not-counting counter moves, that this time around,dont always insta-kills). ow and if your worrying about desmond,dont worry,we still get plenty to see of him..or not, if you prefer that.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1May 9, 2011Assassin's creed is one of the few modern series,that only "improved" with the sequel.
this is also true with brotherhood.even though theAssassin's creed is one of the few modern series,that only "improved" with the sequel.
this is also true with brotherhood.even though the core gameplay has only had minor changes, the changes that were made do feel awesome.Like taking the offensive in combat,now actually rewards you with brutal attacks, and combined with the existing counter move,can make for epic fights.
The titular Brotherhood is disappointingly enough a negligible asset, they feel more like an additional weapon,rather then a real team, and their biggest use is to cheat you out of an challenge. In the open city of Rome,there are many Storyline missions and once you get far enough in the main storyline, you get a few choices of side quests to do that mix up the experience a bit,like missions with free running or missions that require stealth and reward you with something very awesome..
and this is just the Singleplayer ! Brotherhood also features a Online Multiplayer Function! so all-in-all,AC:Brotherhood is a fun experience you'll be busy with for quite a while.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Feb 23, 2011All PC Hardware related issues aside. the game itself is very immersive, but the pacing is a bit sloppy. one moment you are running aroundAll PC Hardware related issues aside. the game itself is very immersive, but the pacing is a bit sloppy. one moment you are running around avoiding obstacles,then that same moment you have no clue where to go and come to a complete stop..and the game's "runner vision" doesnt always help out there.
but if your really clever,thats not going to be an issue.
there are also some other bugs like being locked into scope vision when using a sniper rifle and faith not always grabbing on ledges.
although minor issues,can be really annoying and pulls you right out of the immersion.
but thats really all the issues is have with this game.
The Good things the game does,it does really well.
like the graphics,never before i've seen realism and artistic graphics clash together like this.
Music is very fitting most of the time too. and the running and jumping mechanics work well most of the time. the story is also integral to the events that unfold while you play, and is generally wel executed.
all in all, its a enjoyable experience… Expand
Average User Score: 6.1Nov 10, 2010This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Before the release.i thought Black ops could never top Modern Warfare 2.. boy was i wrong.
Although campaign is a tad short.it has more diversity then Modern warfare 2 had and its just a little bit more appealing. although the lack of Campaign co-op is disapointing,the addition of zombie mode co-op makes up for it. but enough about that,lets talk about the multiplayer!,there are the old modes like capture the flag and such. but the new game modes in the wager modes is where its at. with games like sticks and stones,Gun game & one in the chamber among others,especially sticks and stones came across as one of the more fun modes,in sticks and stones you only have a crossbow with exploding tipped arrows,a hatchet and a ballistic knife to use in battle. and this can lead to various situations you can hardly get anywhere else. the game is just so much better then any of the predecessor already and then i havent talked about other things like Dead ops or theater mode. COD:Black ops has enough content to satisfy the shooter needs for awhile IMO.… Expand
