Late Assassins Creed Revelations Review

Did I have to ram this down my throat just so I could go ahead with playing Assassins Creed 3 without feeling that I was going to miss out on Assassins Creed lore? Yep, pretty much. Did I enjoy it? We’ll have to see about that. Did I cry to the Embers video sequel? A little doesn’t really count.

I had purchased this game around May 2012 after the price had dropped down to about £20 for the Xbox 360. At the time, I played about 10 minutes worth and quite simply thought, “WTF!”. I just couldn’t understand the (again) new changes to the game mechanics, the opening scene or Ezio. Everything was just infuriating me, it wasn’t fair that this was what the AC series had come to. Out popped the game from the console, and into a sealed box in a secret warehouse it went.

A year comes and goes, and I’m thinking that, “That copy of AC3 is just wasting away on my PC’s hard drive, but I can’t skip straight to that until I got my story’s worth from Revelations.”  So, with abated breath, bracing myself for another round of pain, I booted up the game. And so to keep this short, essentially it’s the same old as any Assassins Creed 2 game, with plenty of collectibles, a story about deceit and jumping down on unsuspecting people to do the dirty, however you want to take that. The brotherhood of assassins return, and it’s cool to be able to call on backups, as Ezio certainly needs them considering his age and how poorly he now combats in the cutscenes. Didn’t take too long to actually complete this game, only something like 8 hours, not a lot to it. The graphics are nice, but I still think Brotherhood is the best looking by far out of the entire series. I would like to say that this is the end of a pretty cool era, but there is still the Embers film that showcases Ezio’s final days.

All in all, not a bad game, a nice edition to the series even if it is the same old thing. I do recommend playing the whole of series two of Assassins Creed, plenty of story and action to engross you for days, plus they’re extremely cheap to pick up on G2A. You can find your copies by clicking on the link to G2A on your right —-> I do regard Ezio as the best assassin out of them all, and I did enjoy being able to play through pretty much the entirety of his life, I don’t think any other game has done this apart from The Sims. Ezio, you will be missed.
