This final title serves as a great send off for both the protagonists from Assassin's Creed I and Assassin's Creed II through Revelation. The Altair missions were fun to play and it was great to learn what became of this legendary Assassins post first game. It was full of sorrows but also hope. As for Ezio, it was good to see his progression through life, no longer was he doing it for revenge but instead as a teacher and a student. He had become a legend himself and to see him follow in the footsteps of Altair to learn what it really meant to be an Assassin was interesting and it was an emotional end to a great trilogy. My only gripes are the hook blade and some minor story blunders. The hook blade is a real throw off serving no real purpose and the story is good but there are some holes and nonsense.
Assassin's Creed Revelations is the first game in the franchise where the cash grab becomes as clear as daylight. It's a copy paste of Brotherhood, except not nearly as good. The plot is clearly overextended, bringing unnecessary elements to what was a somewhat solid and cohesive plot. The gameplay is not as fun as previous installments. This is the first game where enemies actually have firearms. Of course I'm not talking about sub-machine guns. They have those rifles where they shoot and spend the next 40 seconds reloading. Still, it's not well implemented. It's so annoying to be fighting a group of enemies with swords just to die from a shot fired from a rooftop (this gladly was improved in Assassin's Creed 3). It also introduces a new locomotion system, in the form of lines you can travel across using your newly acquired hook. With all that said, Assassin's Creed Revelations is not a bad game. But it's a step down in quality from previous instillments resulted from a clear cash grab. You will not miss anything if you skip this one.
This latest entry in the Assassin's Creed series is probably the last we'll see of Ezio Auditore as he is now old but still can perform as an Assassin at an optimal level. Desmond Miles returns in the game as he tries to show his ancestor the right path through the Animus after being rescued by the present day Assassins! Since Ezio conquered Italia in his Prime, he's now seeking the wisdom of his Great great Ancestor and Legendary Assassin, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. A more wiser and skilled Ezio Auditore Travels through the Cities of Masyaf and Istanbul in the quest of weakening the Templar control over there but also looking for Altair's Library of Wisdom! Assassin's Creed: Revelations is exactly built upon the same iteration of the Anvil Engine upon which AC II and Brotherhood were built. Special type of Bomb making is introduced in this entry. You can make hundreds of combinations of bombs by collecting different bomb parts throughout your travels. So these bombs can rescue you out of any dangerous situation you found yourself in. A new type of Blade is introduced in AC: Revelations, the Hook blade, through which you can slide from building to building considering they have a special rope attached to each other. Assassin Hubs also make a return in this games in shape of Dens. This is where a new type of mechanic is introduced, known as Den Defense or Tower Defense. Basically as you seek to capture different Templar towers throughout Istanbul, they in turn try to capture your previously conquered towers so you have to strategically defeat them using your brotherhood of assassins. AC: Brotherhood is the last game in the series that uses the same quality of texture and character model assets as in all previous AC games starting from AC II. Graphic options are of the same amount in the PC version as in the previous titles. It can run pretty easily on any mid-range PC at time of its release. The Soundtrack of the previous 2 entries is somewhat better than this iteration. It never feels & sounds as beautiful and peaceful to listen to as in AC: Brotherhood and AC II. So, what are my thoughts? I feel these games coming year after year make the series somewhat stagnant when it comes to innovative gameplay and improvement in visuals. Revelations doesn't feel as fun and challenging to play as the previous AC games, only the story remains interesting and mysterious enough to play through if you can keep up with the same old gameplay. So, if you're an Avid Assassin's Creed fan who is dying to know what happens next in Ezio's & Desmond's story and don't wanna miss any possible surprises in the game, I recommend that you buy the game at a very cheap price as its not worth at a high price. You can also choose to skip this entry as it offers the same old gameplay and visuals as the previous ones.
Another adventure of Ezio. This time, in the end we get a different color robes. It is no longer white, and gray, which I think adds amazing climate and is one of my favorite outfits in Assassin's Creed. What can we expect from the game? Those who have played in the previous part of Assassin's Creed, you will notice many similarities to them in Revelations. We get a huge, open world, which we can freely explore where we can climb virtually any place, full of interesting sites and monuments faithfully mapped. The fight mechanics like this that we know of the Brotherhood. Ezio does not need to learn all the tricks from the beginning (except for the use of the hook), so we meet stronger opponents almost immediately. I had the opportunity to fight with a group of Janissaries, the personal bodyguards of the Sultan, who made me a problem, mainly by the fact that they did not hesitate to use firearms, could be repealed before each blow, until I broke their defense does not kick, and did not die immediately after one , well leveled counterattack. Admittedly, this part is very impressive. You just have to play it!
