Assassin's Creed: Revelations
10 June 2012
Excerpt: Altair Ibn-La’Ahad, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Desmond Miles. The three protagonists who shined the last couple of years in the Assassin’s Creed series and kept gamers around the world clustered to their screens.
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.
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.
Conclusion: AC Revelations is a great finalization of the Ezio story, the emotional ending that is amazing.

Conclusion: Revelations gets what it needed to get right as far as the fans go, and should ride that to plenty of sales. However if you weren’t interested in previous versions, the changes made probably won’t change your mind.
Conclusion: Instead they want us playing 1st person block jumping instead of 3rd person Ezio doing fun missions. Sorry Ubisoft, I appreciate the achievements and all, but this is a big swing and an even bigger miss, than I could have ever anticipated. Crap DLC...
Conclusion: Concept: Conclude the tales of Ezio and Altaïr in a dramatic adventure through Constantinople
Graphics: Detailed cityscapes and intricate animation work continue to maintain a high standard for open-world games
Sound: Another excellent soundtrack accompanies the smartly acted dialogue
Conclusion: For a game with the suffix 'Revelations', there are surprisingly few to be found here. Still a solid and immensely enjoyable game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations nonetheless fails to instil the same level of excitement that previous games in the series managed to muster, reheating many of...
