Reviews for Assassin's Creed Revelations: Gold (NA)
Fun, good game, but more of the sameDaiMonPaul | Dec. 21, 2013 | See all DaiMonPaul's reviews »
The third game in the trilogy starting with AC2, Revelations is a good game that's fun to play, but it's really just more of the same, which can make it a bit tedious at times. It plays very similarly to the other Assassin's Creed games, which can be either good or bad, depending on how you liked the gameplay in those games. It doesn't really add much that's new that's worthwhile, though. Of course, the game looks and sounds great, and the controls are tight, but this isn't a game that you can pick up right after playing the previous ones... you almost need to take a break. I'd also recommend against picking it up without having played the previous games, too... you CAN play it without getting too lost, but you'll get a lot more out of it if you've played the previous two games in the trilogy.
The game is fun, but it doesn't really do much that's new; I enjoyed Brotherhood better, honestly. Revelations has a story that gets even more convoluted, and Constantinople just wasn't as fun to run around in as Rome was. It's still a good game, though, and if you've played the others in the series, you almost have to pick it up. If you haven't, though, I'd recommend Brotherhood over this one.
Wrapping up two great storiesmugaro | Dec. 20, 2013 | See all mugaro's reviews »
Top notch graphics make for a beautiful Constantinople. The gameplay is at its peak here. The hookblade makes for easy access through town and you have maximum amount of gadgets and ways to assassinate a target here. My one complaint about gameplay is the Janissary are basically invincible fighters, even withstanding point blank gunshots.
The story wraps up Ezio's life as well as goes into detail about Altair from AC1. It flashes into important moments from his life, starting with the end of AC1 when Altair was 26 and ending with his early 90s. There are some decent plot twists in the story, and I love the use of real historical figures that are portrayed as they are told in history.
I highly recommend the Assassin's Creed series, especially the Ezio trilogy (AC2: AC:BH & AC:R).
