Reviews for Assassin's Creed® Revelations
Ezio's story comes to a closevipe_1 | Jan. 27, 2015 | See all vipe_1's reviews »
Assassin's Creed Revelations is the next part of the story of Ezio Auditore, and fittingly a nice ending to his part of the storyline. Revelations will take a much older Ezio to Constantinople (present day Istanbul) in a middle eastern style setting that is actually a refreshing look over the European dominated franchise. Graphics, sound, and overall gameplay are very similar to the previous installment, with the main change in gameplay being the expanded assassin battles.
I personally was a big fan of this game, even more than Brotherhood in many respects. The game gets to the point, and the setting is great. Missions are much better designed than some in the past, and the Animus sections of the game are more abstract and interesting this time around. This games threading into the rest of the story works very well also.
Whether you like II, Brotherhood, or whatever other AC game the best, this is at least a very solid addition to the franchise.

I am a huge fan of the Assassins Creed franchise, and have loved every instalment except this one. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but when compared to other chapters of the AC saga, it's depressingly bad in almost every regard!
First, the game is without question incredibly short. When I finished the game, I was actually surprised because it FELT like I should only have been a little over halfway through.
The graphics are nice! However, they aren't really any better than Brotherhood. So, while I wasn't too disappointed with the graphics, I also wasn't thrilled. I did expect more from the game, because it was a sequel, and I just naturally assume the graphics will be better than the previous title in the franchise.
The story and setting was poor at best, and while it could have been worse, it could have also been so much better. It feels rushed, and because of that served as a disappointed. However AC3 made up for the lackluster performance of Revelations.
Ezio's final storyJericho417 | Aug. 9, 2014 | See all Jericho417's reviews »
I really loved AC 2 and Brotherhood, so I had high expectations for Revelations. It's the conclusion to Ezio's story, right? Well, unfortunately, it was a let down in so many ways. It felt really short, shorter than the previous games. Maps didn't feel as full and large as the other games. I had a difficult time getting multiplayer to work, nothing seemed to work. I had to tweak controls a bit because the default set-up felt a bit wonky. I liked all the added history, though. Presenting history in an enjoyable fashion, spurring curiosity and having an entry with more details worked well. Like the other AC games, the port was well done and didn't feel lacking. I liked Ezio and felt that his story could have ended better, though his after-the-game life seemed well enough.
A nice conclusion to Ezio Alditorecocoawolf29 | July 28, 2014 | See all cocoawolf29's reviews »
The last part of Ezio's career as an Assassin, this makes a great game. Even as an old man, Ezio is an amazing assassin, and this game wraps up his life as a servant of the Assassin's nicely. The map is small and gameplay is shorter than Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood, making it an easier game to do absolutely everything that can be done. It was also nice to get flash backs to Altair's life as an assassin, combining it with Ezio's world.
I loved seeing the architecture of a new area. It was very different from Italy's buildings, but it was still beautiful.
Overall, everything in this game was much simpler than in previous games. Less to do, though there was still a wide amount of things to collect and buy, a smaller map, a shorter game. However, I didn't find this to be a detraction. I found it nice to have a shorter game compared to the much more complicated predecessors. It's a simple game, but still quite enjoyable. It's a suggested play if you enjoyed seeing the other parts of Ezio's life.
3rd/3 in the Ezio seriesTCass29 | June 24, 2014 | See all TCass29's reviews »
AC:R is a good Assassin's Creed game, but it absolutely does not live up to the expectations of Brotherhood or 2. Ezio is getting a bit older now so the game introduces some new mechanisms to help him get around. Whereas before he could jump to a higher ledge, he now extends a claw of sorts that reaches up and helps pull him to new heights.
Because this game takes place in other countries than Italy, the architecture changes (obviously) and it doesn't have the same feeling of renaissance-era grandeur.
The mechanics are similar to Brotherhood, but it just doesn't quite compete.
Very BlandCgtitan5 | April 15, 2014 | See all Cgtitan5's reviews »
Assassin's Creed Revelations is very mediocre. Aside from a few new features very little has changed from AC Brotherhood it terms of gameplay. I did enjoy that you could design your own bombs, I also enjoyed using the grappling blade. The story feels weak and very short compared to the other AC games.
I didn't really care or feel attached to any of the characters aside from Ezio, The architecture doesn't feel as grandiose as the other games I also wasn't as impressed as I usually am.The art seem alright but I was not a fan of the outfits at all. Overall I would rate this game slightly better than AC3.
