well, the game, is really fun to play, the multy is boring, but the single player is so F*ING A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. the story in not that good but the gameplay, like most the the games of AC, is really amazing/ The garphics are phenomenal, the sensitivity is easy to control and more more more is you want to buy the game, you should! but is you want to buy it for the MP then forget it..

Running on empty

After 3 installments in the Assassin's Creed Franchise, Revelations feels a little stale. There's nothing new to distinguish it from its predecessors, leaving it feeling more like an over-priced DLC than a true standalone game. Worth picking up on sale, though, if you absolutely must know what happens in the story.

Amazing Game

Billyt123 | July 27, 2013 | See all Billyt123's reviews »

This is such an epic game but I think that it is a bit to short. (Not sure if someone has mentioned this before...) Recommended For any new Assassin's Creed Player

The end of the trilogy

szami777 | June 18, 2013 | See all szami777's reviews »

I recommend this game for every assasins creed fan, because we got new places , characters, and last but not least new story. There is no big difference between Brotherhood and Relevations, but who cares, we got a new awesome Assasinss Creed. This is the third part with this character and i'm sure that this is a very nice ending to this trilogy. Ezio Auditore the best cheracter ever. He deserves 3 game. The graphics looks like amazing, much more better than Brotherhood. We have multiplayer again, which is awesome, just like in Brotherhood. Great game, Great deal.

The important finale for ezio but short

maddocks2379 | May 12, 2013 | See all maddocks2379's reviews »

Assassin's Creed Revelations is set a little after brotherhood, this is Ezio's final part to play as the older man finds himself in turkey looking for the Mysaif keys to open Altair's vault. Revelations has by far the best cinematic styled story, but suffering in game length and lack of side missions. This is about half the length of the last two.

Graphics improve even more over AC2:BH and the character textures are good, gameplay is near identical to BH, with torching towers to open areas and recuiting assassins to help you fight.

Revelations is a must play in the series as it ends the career of the great Ezio

Nothing really new

Stebsis | Feb. 13, 2013 | See all Stebsis's reviews »

Revelations is quite short, but a great ending to both Ezio and Altair storyline. You get to live the final moments of Altair and Ezio, and these moments are emotional and it gives you nice and satisfying conclusion to one of the greatest game trilogies ever. Sadly, gameplay wise nothing is really new.

Once again you are Ezio, and you come to Constantinople to find out what Altair, your distant grandfather has left you. Story isn't anything that memorable outside the Altair bits and some of the later moments of Ezio. On your travels you find these relics that kind of transfer you to the Altair section and tell his story as he becomes the grand master of assassins.

There is nothing really to say about Revelations that hasn't been said of the previous 2. This is a great end to a trilogy even though it's not that long or deep as Brotherhood. If you've liked previous 2, you will like Revelations.

You've seen it all before

Antix | Jan. 23, 2013 | See all Antix's reviews »

After a lackluster start, Assassin's Creed 2 and its follow-up game, Brotherhood, set the franchise up for greatness. Now we have the fourth entry and things are starting to get a little dull, not just because of the fact that this is the third game about Ezio using the same engine instead of a proper sequel, but because it really is just mostly a copy of Brotherhood, whereas the previous two games were each a breath of fresh air.

Now an old man and the grandmaster of the Assassins, Ezio visits Constantinople to look for some answers. You'll immediately be introduced to Yusuf, a charismatic young man who all but disappears for most of the game and once again, like in Brotherhood, you'll be mostly locked inside one city, liberate its parts, renovate stuff and hire random recruits that you can level up. The game itself is almost an exact copy of Brotherhood, with the hookblade, bombs and an awful tower defense minigame being the only noteworthy additions. There also are very few assassination side missions, instead you just act as a mentor to your recruits, which makes sense in the context but is rather disappointing gameplay-wise.

The plot itself, interestingly enough, is mostly about Altair and how he spent his life after the events of the first game. It's like the creators just felt it necessary to go back and give Altair a little bit of personality because they realized they completely ignored his character the first time around and that's really what Revelations is all about. Some of these scenes are downright awkward as they try to portray tragic events about characters that no one cares about since they just got introduced out of the blue.

Still what you can expect from an Assassin's Creed game for the most part, a good game in its own right. It's just not the fresh and amazing experience that AC2 and Brotherhood were, however if you're a fan of the series then this is another entry that you will want to check out.

The satisfying conclusion to a sweet trilogy

fable2 | Dec. 16, 2012 | See all fable2's reviews »

AC:R is a solid game; it delivers on basically all fronts of the Assassin's Creed formula. Great level design: check. Graphics: check. Beautiful scenery: check. Good story progression: check.

Assassins Creed games instill a sense of awe as you expand your influence over a new city, increase your personal arsenal of power, and enact 'justice' as you see fit. Ezio is god-like, so it's fun to play with his over-powered abilities. The conclusion is sweet and solid; I could not have wanted a better ending.

With that said, of course the game isn't perfect. It has certain flaws; den-defense is just as bad as it sounds. It's not -terrible- per se, but it's not all that fun, and can grow tedious as it isn't optional. You'll need to do it, and will be praying that your assassins reach max level so they can defend it and put an end to the pain!

But all in all, there are some issues here and there. Most of them are ignorable and trivial when compared to how good the game is in general. Because the Assassins Creed formula is somewhat worn down, it doesn't necessary give you the 'oh my goodness, this is totally new and amazing' feeling, so it's not necessarily revolutionary or a 9.0 kind of game. But still, sometimes, sticking to a good formula works rather well; why break something that isn't broken?

Very similar to Brotherhood

panz3r88 | Sept. 14, 2012 | See all panz3r88's reviews »

Assassin Creed Revelations is the game that finish the trilogy related to Ezio Auditore and tells you something more about the protagonist of the first Assassin Creed Altair. The game is very similar to Brotherhood: this time you will explore the city of Constantinopoli, where you must fight the Templar with the help of other Assassins. The game introduce some new elements,the most important is the grappling hook, that gives you new fighting option and ways to climb walls; You can create many different kind of bombs if you have the required elements, but in the end only few of them are usefull. In Revelations some times you must defend the area of the cities you conquered from the Templar in a minigame similar to a tower defense game: after sometimes you will find these defenses become repetitive. The multiplayer game of Brotherhood returns in Revelations and it's quite fun

Not the best in the franchise

schroff | Sept. 13, 2012 | See all schroff's reviews »

After riding the highs of 2 & brotherhood, came Revelations in less than a year on the PC after Brotherhood. I was pumped up for this game after watching the incredible trailer Ubi put together for that year's E3 but the final product doesn't live up to the standard of the past games. Maybe it's just the character Ezio is already fleshed out and there's only so much they could add in a full game. Constantinople lacks the charm of Acre/Damascus/Jerusalem or Rome/Firenze. The story just gropes around in the darkness creating mystery for the sake of mystery and only leaves the player in confusion and ultimately boredom as Ezio is already at his peak and there's little to upgrade in his arsenal of moves and equipment beyond grenades. This one should've been a minor expansion or DLC for Brotherhood and not the drag it turned out to be. I hope 3 turns out better with its fresh characters and setting.

Assassin’s Creed Revelations, JUST WOW!!!

stirling | Sept. 6, 2012 | See all stirling's reviews »

The Assassins creed series is certainly one of my most Favorite game series, and Assassins Creed Revelations just blew me away! the stunning and beautiful world of Constantinople really makes it feel like your there.

You play as ezio as he follows the footsteps of Altair through out his mission to stop the Templar's from taking rule over Constantinople he fights and battles his way to bring down the rising Templar's army!

Overall i found this game thrilling, exasperating, and one of the best games ive played!! its honestly an astonishing game.

The fourth edition of Assassin's Creed series, while the final part of the trilogy of Ezio. The main character travels in the footsteps of his ancestor Altair, hitting the medieval Constantinople. Nice game. Definitely worth buying!

NOTHING is TRUE, everything is PERMITTED!

JohnySVK | Aug. 17, 2012 | See all JohnySVK's reviews »

The last part of Ezio's way and the fourth title in the series. There are two ways to do a review first as a new original game or as another in series. First way: The game offers a big city of Constantinopole , the assassin abilities like climbing buildings and silent killings and very interesting story about italian master assassin Ezio Auditore and the game is also the end for Altair of the first game. The second way:The game is still good as the previous but that's the problem because it's almost the same game just without horses. There is a hook as a part of the hidden blade wich almost replaces the need of horses and offers a new way to kill, to run away and to explore the big city. The game has multiplayer too, it's same as in Brotherhood but with oher characters from Revelations. In the game there is also some kind of minigame which reveals the life of Desmond it's not very funny but i can guarantee you will unlock all the parts of Desmond's way and you'll play it to the end. So goodbye Ezio Auditore Da Firenze, goodbye Altair Ibn La Ahad. So buy it live it enjoy it and prepare to the rise of the US in ACIII and for the biggest secret almost as good as from Dan Brown's books. The End.

Goodbye Ezio!

sanyi777 | Aug. 6, 2012 | See all sanyi777's reviews »

Assassin's Creed Revelations is a good ending for Ezio, but if we look the game closer, we will see, that Revelations is Brotherhood 2.0. The game doesn't changed. Okay, there are a few changes, but what are they? First, there is the hookblade that makes climbing easier, and adds some new combat features. Secondly, the Den Defense is an indifferent tower-defense game-type of Assassin's Creed. The thing that saves Revelations from the "same as Brotherhood" titles is the story. Ezio's adventures in Istanbul with the Sultan's family are still great. The multiplayer is a little bit different from the previous game, but this won't make the game better, so if you liked the previous AC games you will like this one too.

Very Nice Game

ROKET | June 20, 2012 | See all ROKET's reviews »

I cannot tell you how many issues they fixed going from Brotherhood to Revelations. The combat is better, the economy is better, and the graphics are MUCH better.

The game is just so much more fluid with animations you only see in the best games. If you dont know already, the used the same facial expression tech they used in LA Noire and man does it really change things up. The improved graphics and models and textures make for an even more lively world that makes you both chuckle and stare.

The gameplay itself is more fluid with even better ways of moving through the environment. Unfortunately horses dont make a true come back but the city in this game is far different than Rome.

One specific new addition to the gameplay is the use of bombs which allow you to fight even more strategically. Theres nothing like blasting away 4 guards at once with a single toss.

If you're a fan of AC and want to continue the story of Ezio to its end - look no further - this game is great.

Copy-paste from the last two

simonsix | June 15, 2012 | See all simonsix's reviews »

Assassin's Creed games used to get better with every sequal. that is not the case with Revelations. The game mixes things up by focusing on Desmond's perspective but the storyline is rather shallow. The entire Assassin's Creed franchise would be better without the modern day secondary storyline.Quality graphics, sound, and story

Assassins Creed 2.75

Lingwisyer | June 13, 2012 | See all Lingwisyer's reviews »

If you haven't already spent hundreds of hours in the previous games but are still up to date with the story then you could find the new features in this game sufficient. As this reviews title says, Assassins Creed Revelations is yet another "Expansion" to AC2. Gameplay wise the game has barely changed from AC:B. Revelations introduces the use of bombs and an improved version of the hidden blade, the hook blade. The bombs add a little bit of variety to the game with the player being able to distract, kill or impair enemies with a small variety of effects from smoke screen to blood splatter, poison to explosive. The hook blade adds even less to the game than the bombs. It's main use is in free running. It can be used to vault enemies, glide along zip lines and extend your reach ever so slightly. Vaulting is rarely done unless you want to risk running into crowds that you can't effectively vault over and the reach change is barely noticeable. The zip lines are nice but they're few and inbetween. The spring boards scattered around AC2 were much more satisfying. The colour palette is dull and the is music dreary. After the first few hours I only continued playing for the story which is interesting to an extent.

Forever an assassin.

arkantos | May 1, 2012 | See all arkantos's reviews »

Well what i could say, Ezio is starting to feel the old age on his own, movements are a bit slowed down, you will see it when playing the memory's of Altair, the game is not so long, there's only 1 city, which is very big, but almost empty, the graphic is very nice itself, the endgame will make you feel sad, not gonna spoil it anyway, if you want to conclude the story from previous game i suggest you to get it, the MP mode is also not bad,
