Assassin's Creed: Revelations
31 October 2013
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. Ezio’s allure was starting to wear thin, but his role in Brotherhood was compelling enough to the point where I really thought like Ubisoft could keep that train running at least one more time.
Excerpt: <p><b>Violence:</b>Many occurrences of stabbings, shootings, falling,being thrown off of buildings, neck-snappings, limbs twisting, bombs, and people getting attacked whilst unarmed.</p> <p><b>Sex/Nudity:</b> Some verbal references and revealing clothing.</p> <p><b>Language: </b>Uses of B***rd, F**k, S**t, D**k, A*s, D**n, Bl***y, and B***l**ks. God and Jesus' name are used in vain infrequently.
Excerpt: Altair Ibn-La’Ahad, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Desmond Miles. Ziehier de drie protagonisten die de afgelopen jaren in de Assassin’s Creed-reeks schitterden en miljoenen gamers aan hun scherm gekluisterd hielden. Maar ook aan mooie liedjes komt een eind, dus ook aan dit verhaal, dat met Revelations al aan z’n vierde deel toe is. Of het ook een afsluiter in schoonheid is geworden, dat lees je hier.
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 based on the puzzle sequences introduced in the main game.
Pros: + Offers insight into Subject 16 and franchise lore., + Alluring presentation makes strong impression.
Cons: ? Will these story details feed into the tale in
Review: Assassin's Creed: Revelations (Microsoft Xbox 360)
31 January 2012
Summary: : Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is basically a game for the fans, both because it wraps up everything from the last three games in a way they’ll appreciate, and because it’s largely inaccessible to anyone but them thanks to some unfortunate design choices. The story expands on Desmond’s backstory and finishes the tales of Ezio and Altair well enough, and the game looks nice and sounds excellent all in all.
Bloody adventure game with visceral violence, online play.

Summary: Parents need to know that Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is a bloody and violent adventure game set primarily in the 16th-century that has players taking on the role of assassins. Players alternate their time between climbing buildings and combat, the latter of which involves plenty of gruesome, stylized, slow motion execution sequences.
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. If guards are attacking you despite your notoriety being zero, well, that's just a bit of dodgy Animus programming. And if Niccoló Polo is refusing to follow you because he's busy hovering above a rock?
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. The city of Constantinople is a worthy successor to picturesque settings like Venice and Rome, and the accompanying narrative resolves many of the lingering mysteries in a (mostly) satisfying way.
Review: Ezio’s not the only thing getting old in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
22 January 2012
Excerpt: Each holiday season since 2009, the Assassin’s Creed team has provided a robust, open-ended game experience, easily rivaling anything the competition puts out once every few years. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is the third and final entry following the life of Ezio Auditore da Firenze. As a brief recap, the original game featured Altaïr Ibn La’Ahad, an assassin during the Third Crusade.
