Assassin's Creed: Revelations Gold is the final step in the Ezio trilogy as Ezio leaves Rome seeking for answer about the war between assassins and templars, using the knowledge of the master assassin: Altair. Traveling to Masiaf and ending in Constatinopla, you, as Ezio, must discover the secrets that Altair left behind across the time. This edition of the game comes with all the DLC released for the game, as it just add content mostly for multiplayer, new skins and maps (Some maps are new and others are maps from previous games). Singleplayer get one extra mission, more capacity upgrades and skins. Recommended.
Assassin's Creed Revelations is the perfect closure for Ezio's trilogy, with nice flashbacks into Altair's memories. However, it does not offer something completely new and if you were getting tired by Brotherhood's mechanisms, Revelations will definitely not change your mind. But the beauty of Constantinople (Istanbul) and the desire to see the end of such a charismatic character like Ezio will prevail on imperfections. There's not much to do once you get past the main storyline. Its still really fun though, worth its price. Highly recommended! 10/10
Despite the general consensus for this game being a poor man's brotherhood, i find this game does close off Ezio and Altairs story quite well.
So you've put in the work! You created a pitch black cape, grab a black leather glove (from OJ Simpson fame) taped a butter knife to your wrist and put on a raiders hooded sweatshirt. You're totally ready for a new adventure as everyone's favorite assassin Enzio Auditore. You start up the game excited to finally see what really happened during the events of the previous game.. (cliff hangers tend to do that)... Nothing more needs to be said as the real life story isn't driven forward much at all in this game, but that doesn't detract away from the brilliance of this wonderful game.. The Story.... Back again As Desmond Miles, only this time Desmond Miles is in a coma, brought upon by his interactions with the Apple from the previous game. Fear not, instead of seeking out medical attention, or generally waiting for Desmond to wake up as going into a coma is a serious side effect of the Animus.. his trusty companions decide the best course of action is to strap Desmond into the Animus for yet another fun and exciting adventure as Enzio.. Immediately you'll notice something Enzio is a geriatric now. He's old, he looks to have aged about 40 years since Brotherhood, but we'll let that slide because in all honesty Enzio is probably the coolest fictional old guy since the Dos Equis guy.. Enzio finds himself in Constantinople, on a mission to discover the secrets of Altairs (the assassin from the first game, for those who don't already know) Waltzing up and just going into the library would be too easy.. we are talking Assassin's Creed here. So after a nice little tutorial missing you're thrust into Constantinople, all alone, broke, and injured.. The story picks up from there... or it doesn't depending upon how you look at it.. The Gameplay.. it's fairly familiar by this point, run, jump, collect, kill, sneak... a few major additions in this game was the hook blade, a nice little addition, also you can now create bombs, lethal, stun and Smoke varieties.. These are pretty much game changers once you get used to how they work.. Another addition is red and yellow trails when you open up eagle sense. It's kind of cheap in all honesty, but sometimes you just want to watch the world burn.. Towers used from the last game are back.. only now they are no longer called Borgia towers (since the Borgia family was pretty much removed from the AC universe in the second game) Now they are known as Dens, which you unlock to gain a new hideout for your assassins. Another neat addition to the game was den defense.. (which is a simplified tower defense game), while the concept was pretty neat, in 24 hours of playing, I only managed to initiate 2 den defenses.. The first tutorial one, and the second one happened not too long after that.. It wasn't for lack of trying as I left my suspicion meter in the red for hours, and paid close attention to the map, wandering around various parts.. Needless to say I think this aspect was broken in my game for some reason.. The recruitment system is back, and it's been expanded upon quite considerable. You can now reach level 15 with individual assassins, and you can set them as leaders of the individual dens. Furthermore, the quest system seemed to receive an overhaul as well. Now you can have your assassins take over a city, (instead of just quest there) when you're in control you receive cash, experience and bomb making materials. A neat addition to say the least, especially as money in this game is fairly difficult to come by until you've opened up almost all the shops and banks.. As well as playing Enzio, you'll get the chance to play as Altair.. although his missions are fairly limited but are really interesting and help show what became of Altair after you left him.. Overall.. I'd recommend this game, although after playing Assassin Creed 2 and Brotherhood, this game felt like more of the same, where as the previous games seemed to get better as time went on. Although it could have just been me starting to get burned out on Assassin Creed. Also the game didn't feel quite as epic or as well put together as the previous 3 games.. Not just the story but the bugs, glitches, and general unstable nature of the game.. especially when closing the program down, which crashes 90% of the time. Almost inexcusable at this point in time, matters are made worse because the crashing often times results in a locked up computer. *Quick Note.. Multiplayer is still alive in this game, but it's pretty much on life support. After playing Multiplayer long enough to get level 20 I can say that any new comers to multiplayer will be in for a very daunting task. You'll likely be matched with level 50's who have all the best perks equipped.. Although after I gained some levels and learned the game it was more fun than I expected.. Although some things a bit cheap, that comes with almost every online game..
I loved assassin's creed series since the first game which was incredible experience until ac3 which was total failure and disaster. Assassin's creed revelations is driven with intriguing story on both threads: nowadays' Desmond and past's Ezio Auditore da Firenze. "Fans" who say modern times part shouldn't exist are ignorants who have no idea what they are talking about and they do not follow plot in any way. Gameplay wise revelations introduce new mechanics and elements in singleplayer campaign. ACR is second game in series with multiplayer mode. AC Brotherhood was the first game in series with multiplayer mode, in acr mp is enhanced and improved, adds few new game modes. Gold edition is complete and the only edition you should consider to buy as it includes all dlcs available for the game. Definitely worth to purchase and play.
