Assassin's Creed: Revelations must take you back to the start in order to bring you the end, and the answers to all the questions raised throughout this saga. Trapped in the Animus, Desmond must fully understand his past in order to save his future, and we begin our fateful story once more walking in the footsteps of Ezio Auditore and Altair, the legend himself.
With history as your playground, face both action and adventure as you embark once again on a visually delightful, rich storyline which brings all of the pieces of the puzzle together. Ground-breaking graphics flood the game as you explore the incredibly detailed city of Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, with fluid parkour, and brace yourself for another fight to the death against a rising army of Templars. Typical assassination missions task you to stalk, chase and kill your assigned targets, but the grand plot itself comes in to play when Ezio finds clues and keys to Altair's library, with the help of his budding romance with librarian Sophia.
It appears an old dog can learn new tricks, and several additions have been made to this game to make the fight easier. Among these are the hooked hidden blade, providing you with new attack moves, easier wall and building climbing, the use of zip wires, and more. Another helping hand is the brand new bomb crafting ability, which gives you the option to create all different kinds of bombs that can either distract, neutralise or kill. The type completely depends on the combination of the ingredients used, which can be obtained by looting treasure chests, bodies and can also be purchased from various salesmen.
As well as a multi-layered plot to uncover throughout the campaign, Revelations also brings you a new and improved online multiplayer experience, expanded to include new modes, maps and characters to play. Become the master assassin by pitching yourself against others from all around the globe. (Cat Emerson)

Not bad when it comes to graphics but the storyline isn't as great as the AC 2, but still reveals a lot from the AC story.
At first it is pleasant to step back into Ezio's shoes. It pretty much looked like this was goodbye at the end of Brotherhood and as far as I was concerned, the Italian hero was doomed to vanish forever... which was ok considering he'd done more than his share. So here he is - wiser, older and with a couple new tricks up his sleeve. But as soon as the story sets in, the action feels pretty similar to the previous one, only with less core content. The new locale is really great and beautifully rendered and the hook blade makes scaling buildings and jumping around rooftops all-the-more exciting and efficient. The new map design makes it that much easier to track your objectives and plan your movements, which by the way feel overall sharper and more fluid. Combat also has been slightly improved and feels closed to a Batman Arkham Asylum than before (understand: smoother and faster, with a cinematic feel to it). But where AC2 innovated all over the place and made you feel like you were taking part in a saga and Brotherhood felt more like an excellent DLC than a worthy standalone, Revelations feels exactly the same than its predecessor, except you'd expect to have a worthy reason for Ubisoft pulling the same trick the second time around... and naming it "Revelations", no less. Desmond's story is pretty good and interesting and you get your fair share of said revelations, but the first person sequences drag a bit and feel a bit like compulsory scenes that deliver key plot elements but fail to captivate where you should be compelled to push onward. As for the various missions in Constantinople, only a few really stand out. The hookblade, as I said, is a nice addition, though it could have easily passed as a gadget for the original AC2. The Den defence sequences feel a bit superfluous and repetitive and you don't really need to ever partake as long as you can manage to keep a low profile, which is easy enough as soon as you get sufficient cash flowing to bribe heralds. Mediterranean defence assassin missions are back, only slightly enhanced, which feels and plays in a similar way to Brotherhood. Depending on whether you found it to be intriguing and a nice change of pace or utterly pointless and artificial the first time around, you'll like it or not. Personally, I didn't really care, though the possibility it offered to call on fellow assassins I found to be an excellent idea.
This game is one of the best games I've ever played! The missions are long and challenging with a nice variety of action. The city is amazing! If you climb up to a tower or viewpoint you can see the whole area. There are many collectibles and many hours of playtime! There is a multiplayer as well. I can recommend this to anyone!
ACR is such a great game. I can't wait for Assassin's Creed 3. I'm very Happy with my purchase.
Wonderful game very amusing and rich of things to do
My son has been wanting Assassin's Creed: Revelations for a little while now so I'm really happy I managed to get it for such a low price. Thank you!
