Poignant. Heartfelt. Sorrow.

tuleros | Dec. 20, 2013 | Review of Assassin's Creed Revelations: Gold

First you have Altair. The one that opened Pandora's Box. The one who found out that there was more to this world than meets the eye. That the truth was a lie. Then, you have Ezio, whose desire for revenge in the name of his family opened his eyes to conspiracy far greater than one could imagine. This game extracts the defining moments of Altair's life, and continues Ezio's journey in his quest to finish off his father's work in Masyaf. All is not as it seems however, and he is embroiled in the feud between the Ottomans and the Byzantines.

This game scored very high in my books, because to me, the storyline hit the right notes in all terms. I could not help but feel sorry and respect for Altair, as he weathered losses after losses in his life. And the ending. OH GOD. The ending. It blew me away. No other ending in the Assassin Creed franchise, not even Black Flag, comes close to having such a mind-blowing ending.

The multiplayer is also worth mentioning. as it doesn't feel tacked on, and not once in the span of 4 months since I bought the game, did I disconnect or lag during multiplayer gameplay. That's a testament to its quality.

In a nutshell, BUY IT.
