Summary: Ezio is getting old, and so is AC. As usual, the graphics and cut scenes are pretty good, the story is decent, and the mechanics have improved. The problem is that is the exact same game as AC, AC II, AC Brotherhood. Minor tweaks to the gameplay and new cities to explore weren't enough for me to really enjoy it this time around. If this is the first time you have played an Assassin's Creed game, you will love it.
Summary: I own and have played all four Assassin's Creeds for PS3 and have enjoyed watching the story and the game engine progress. The fourth installment has impressed me and is a solid release. Revelations is an intriguing game. Not only is it the final installment in the Ezio trilogy but it also, as the cover suggests, draws connections between Ezio's personal truths and discoveries over a lifetime of dedication to the Creed and our old friend Altair.
Summary: Good game. Thought it was short and not as many extras or side missions as ACB. Overall though it's a great game. Graphics are a little better then previous AC games. Enjoyed playing it. Won't let you down if you're an Assassin's Creed fan.
Summary: Lets start with the bottom line: if you were a fan of any of the earlier AC games, you will enjoy AC:R. That said, there are some shortcomings in design that prevent it from being the best in the series. Pros: + This game has the best story in the series, tying in the histories of Altair, Ezio, and Desmond. Altair's segments are a nice addition, and the flesh out a good portion of his backstory.
Great game - seemed a bit limited compared to AC Brotherhood

Summary: I'd like to really give it 4.0 stars but I can't. And I'm not willing to give it 5 stars as I did AC Brotherhood. The space isn't as scrolling as AC Brotherhood. You feel fairly hemmed into the location more like AC I and II. The loss of the Glyph missions and limited amount of puzzles left me wanting.
Summary: Ezio's story is definitely one of the best and most engaging among any current video games. I thought his character's story was well thought out and at the end of Revelations you do start to get a bit sad at the idea that your time as an Assassin in the Renaissance has reached it's end. But I was a bit disappointed and felt it did not execute to the level as the game's predecessors.
Summary: I have been a die hard Assassin's Creed fan since I picked up a copy of the original for the 360 shortly after its release. That game felt original and was a lot of fun, despite several flaws. Thankfully, Ubisoft fixed nearly all of the flaws with the release of Assassin's Creed II. AC II was not nearly as repetitive and cities were more distinct and unique. I found myself much more "connected" to Ezio than Altair.
