Brotherhood is by far the best. It was the first to introduce the counter-based combat and the objectives/gameplay are tight and cohesive (which is what hurts Revelations and 3 in my opinion). 2 was good, but Brotherhood was essentially a tuned-up version of the same thing. Anyone who says 1 is anything other than last should go back and play it. It was full of great ideas but horribly executed.
