(ps3, xbox360, and PC. I played the ps3 version)
Our old friend Ezio Auditoria da Firenze(one of the best names in a video game:) is back for the last time, and It is an outstanding end to ezio and Altair’s story. It takes place in a very accurate depiction of Constantinople where Ezio tries to find the secrets left behind by Altair.
The city is designed very well with a lively environment. Graphics for this game is the best in the series. You might want to climb up a tall building just to take in the sights.
You can expect to hear great voice acting that fit’s the time period.
Also the controls are very much improved from the last assassins creed games. Even though some of the problems still so up it is small compared to the other games. The people that dwell in the great city of constinoble react to what’s going on like running away when you kill a pesky foe .They might want to get their money back after you pickpocket them even though its not very smart to punch a guy with a gigantic hammer. These people may also get on your nerves as they stand in your way when you are trying to kill your prey. You may get the urge to stab a sword though a bothersome beggar’s head then throw her dead body of a roof.
Ezio is a old man but he can still kick ass. The gameplay is really good and makes you feel like a master assassin. You can kill many foes without breaking a sweat. The combat is suburb with amazing killing animations. Climbing is much easier with the new hook blade as you swiftly climb up the side of a tower making your way to a viewpoint. Most additions to the game is successful except for the den defense which is boring and seems like a waste of time. But overall the new elements make the series even better. One new improvement is the cinematic moments. These are fun and exciting. I am still not done with the game because there is just so much to do. For example you can explore hidden tombs our find the collectables hidden throughout the city. Fans of the first game will be happy because you will be able to learn what happened to Altair Ibn-La’Ahad before and after AC1.
Multiplayer makes a return and you don’t want to miss out on the experience. It is fun, addicting, and different. You have to kill your prey while another player tries to find and kill you. The trick is to be sneaky and blend with the environment.
Assassins Creed Revelations is a game you don’t want to miss out on and it gets a well deserved 9.7
