Review of Assassins Creed Revelations

Like many other gamers, my experience with Assassins Creed started with the first game, where you play as Altair Ibn-la’ahad.

What made me get caught up in this franchise was that you were free to explore the cities as u progressed in the game. You had the freedom to roam the rooftops stalking your prey, waiting for the right moment to strike from the sky.

It was a nice change to be able to do something free, unlike most games that had mostly restricted you to a purely A To B style of gameplay.

In the game world of Assassins and Templars, they both fight for peace in the world....they just have different means to reach their objectives.

Though it may be the same goal, the Templars work with brute force, trying to control people's wills, insteed of embracing the fact that free will is the right way to achieve world peace.

So Anyway, the first Assasin’s Creed game that Ubisoft made confined you to one type of mission mostly, but the game also made me curious about the progressing story.......and what would happen next.

Alta├»r is an ancestor of Desmond Miles (the game franchise’s present day Protagonist), who also has another ancestor who is the main character in Assassins creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations.

For those who played Assasin’s Creed 2 and Brotherhood, we know him as Ezio Auditore - "The Mentor" and Son of Giovanni Auditore.

Assassins creed 2 was all about Ezio’s younger years as he starts off as an assassin (around the age of 17), where he meets up with a young inventor named Leonardo Da Vinci.

Later in the francise (Assasin’s Creed: Brotherhood) you play as Ezio in his middle ages, at that age he gets the title "Mentor" which only the strongest of assassins get.

So now for the part of the story that we all been waiting for....

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations starts when Ezio is in his older years.

He’s quite old now, but still very agile for his age. I guess it must be from all those years of being an Assassin.

The thing I like the most about the new game is that they have still kept everything good from Assassins Creed 2 and Brotherhood, as well as some new changes in the game as well.

here are of course new weapons and new armor too.

During the course of the game you will learn the true name of subject 16, who he is and what happened to him.

Not only will you question what you know from the previous games, but you will also find out what happens to Ezio by the end.

Assassins Creed is a fantastic experience, the graphics are improved greatly, and the camera angles adjust and flow well with you as you move.

The gameplay is still much the same with the parkour style of gameplay where u can climb every inch of every building and now they’ve added an interesting new dynamic to the game....The Zipline.

When an assassin gets tired of running..... he takes for the sky's.

It’s an all new way of getting from one point to another, with the added benefit of taking out your prey from the zipline. It truly is a whole new experience for the game.

The core gameplay is mostly the same as the first Assassins Creed though.

The attention to detail in the game is well thought out, and there’s a lot to explore!! I’ve still hardly touched on the exploring and collecting so I still have quite a few hours to investigate and play. :) hehe.

And by the way, I won’t speculate too much on whether they’re going to make another game soon......but the game does leave you hanging in the end. If u ask me, the francise is definitely not over yet.

Time to get back to the collecting and exploring. wish me luck!!!.....
