Assassin`s Creed Revelations
Game Over Online
29 December 2015
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.
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: Assassin's Creed: Revelations opens with one of the better intro videos in the series, showing how, as a much older man, Ezio has now embarked on a journey to rediscover the origins of the Assassin Brotherhood.
Conclusion: So in closing here, those prior complaints about the game aside, this is a truly fun game that is worthy of being played. As I said before, the graphics are beautiful and set the stage for some incredibly immersive gameplay. The environments alone almost justify the cost of admission!
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: Assassin's Creed: Revelations Publisher: Ubisoft Platform: Xbox 360 , PS3, PC UK Price (as reviewed): £37.79 (inc VAT) US Price (as reviewed): $58.99 (ex tax) Revelations is the Assassin’s Creed series’ fourth iteration in just five years.
Conclusion: Away from the campaign, the multiplayer has been vastly improved. As well as new locations and characters there are story-orientated quests that serve to feed those hooked on Assassin's Creed lore, and some new game modes, including Capture The Flag.
Conclusion: Our general feeling about Assassin's Creed: Revelations is a positive one, even though Ubisoft Montreal made more of an effort to extend the life of the franchise by polishing the multiplayer, rather than adding something new and exciting.
Pros: Stranglely enough this is as fun as ever, plenty to do in the streets of Constantinople, we enjoyed the PoP-style missions, a few cool new elements, the game finally brings a satisfying conclusion to the tales of assassins Ezio and Altaïr;
Cons: The formula may be a bit overused at this point, the series needs a change of pace.
