Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (PC)
8 January 2012
Excerpt: At its best, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will make you feel like an untouchable assassin during times when things were still simple, but at its worst, you’ll get a sense of déjà vu, kind of like you have been there before, killed that guard before and clambered up this building before.
Excerpt: It happens every time. Every time I see footage and screenshots of a new Assassin's Creed game, I get excited. I get hopeful. Here's the strange thing though - I've strongly disliked pretty much every Assassin's Creed game I've played up to this point.
Summary: Assassin's Creed: Revelations tells a perplexing story, but its well-developed characters and fully-realized settings redeem its irregular pace and partially disjointed design. The thrilling action the series is known for remains, but takes a back seat.
Pros: Fully-realized environments, Great character development
Excerpt: The fourth Assassin’s Creed game is out on PC now, for once merely weeks rather than months behind the console version. I’ve been dragging old man Ezio across its rooftops and into its underground lairs of conspiracy for the last few days, and as such… well, you know how this goes.
Summary: Even the greatest heroes can't live forever. And so it goes for Ezio Auditore di Firenze, who finally steps aside to make room for new champions in Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
Pros: New movement options keep the platforming joyful, Brotherhood recruitment has been nicely fleshed out, Gorgeous, vibrant world with a lot to do, Fantastic soundtrack, Emotionally fulfilling ending
Cons: Tower defense isn't fun, Desmond sections aren't fun, Disappointing main story
All will be unveiled: an Assassin’s Creed Revelations review

Excerpt: The highly-anticipated return to the world of the Assassins is here, and promises answers to your questions… albeit not all of them. You return again as Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a now-distinguished old man, but still a spry Assassin and mentor of the Assassin Order.
