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. There's just something about it that never struck me as fun. But still, each year, I'm hopeful that this will be the Assassin's Creed that changes my mind. This year - I was right.
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
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. Your story this time takes you from Masyaf to Istanbul (or was it Constantinople ?) and back, meeting new friends and recruiting more assassins to your cause along the way.

Excerpt: As a special treat in our review, check out the above video Complex Magazine put together featuring Rakim, the famous MC that blew you away in the 80s and keeps it real in the current day, and our own Video Games editor, Tina Amini .
Excerpt: I liked the original Assassin’s Creed, was amazed by Assassin’s Creed II, and loved Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Now, Ubisoft and its array of studios have come up with Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the game that promises to close the loose trilogy of games that focused on Italian assassin Ezio Auditore, while answering questions about the protagonist of first one, Altair, and moving forward the narrative of Desmond, our current day protagonist.
Pros: +Delivers quite a lot of answers, +A huge amount of activities, +Great multiplayer
Cons: -Not a lot of new content, -Bomb making and tower defense feel a bit awkward
