Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
Guide 2 Games
20 March 2015
Excerpt: Violence: Many occurrences of stabbings, shootings, falling/being thrown off of buildings, neck-snappings, limbs twisting and breaking, bombs, and people getting attacked whilst unarmed, are seen. Sex/Nudity: Some verbal references and revealing clothing.
Excerpt: If you count the Director’s Cut of the first game in the franchise, I haven’t played an Assassin’s Creed I didn’t like. Brotherhood felt like a cash-grab after the announcement, but once I actually played it, I ended up liking it more than its predecessor.

Excerpt: For a game whose title promised juicy details, Assassin's Creed: Revelations wasn’t very successful at tying up loose ends or fleshing out its perplexing backstory. Luckily, the new Lost Archive add-on dangles a couple of tantalizing threads in that regard, with a brief, story-centric experience...
Pros: + Offers insight into Subject 16 and franchise lore., + Alluring presentation makes strong impression.

Excerpt: The Animus is gaming's greatest get-out clause. Invisible walls, erratic NPC behaviour, narrative inconsistencies and technical snafus can all be explained away by the fact that you're merely experiencing a (mostly) sophisticated virtual reality simulation.
Summary: Despite starring in three Assassin’s Creed games in as many years, Ezio hasn’t worn out his welcome with me. Revelations doesn’t deviate drastically from the formula established by Brotherhood, but I still love the stealth, intrigue, and action at the heart of the series.
Excerpt: Following 2010’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was going to be no easy task for Ubisoft. Brotherhood brought some significant new stuff to the historical and science fiction hybrid that is the Assassin’s Creed series. To many it was more than a mere expansion to Assassin’s Creed 2.
Excerpt: Well, here we are again. If it's the Christmas season, that means it's time for another Assassin's Creed installment. Now, that may sound like a snide jab at the franchise and Ubisoft, but it really isn't.
Conclusion: Who are you kidding, you know exactly what you’re going to get with an Assassin’s Creed title. If it wasn’t for the disappointing Den Defense mode that gets forced on you and the lack of some deep conspiracy storytelling, this title would compete with Brotherhood as top in the series.
