Top 10 Action Games Of All Time

6. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

Ubisoft kicked off its wildly successful Assassin’s Creed series last generation and delivered a staggering six core entries on last-gen hardware. Of these alternate history/sci-fi tales, Ezio’s second chapter narrowly edged out AC II as the standout title.

The saucy hooded Italian takes to Rome, scaling ancient ruins with a more fluid parkour system. The combat system also underwent enhancements, making it easier to string together flashy kills. Making a bad-ass character even cooler, Ezio could even sit back and call in his fellow assassin brothers to spring from haystacks and other hiding spots to take out targets.

Arguments can be made for the strengths and weaknesses of each Assassin’s Creed game, but Brotherhood has the fewest glaring dents in its armor.
