Assassins creed Revelations (ACR) is an all-round great game, That is if you have played the previous games, Following on from the last game Ezio Auditore travels to the crossroads of the world, Constantinople, to find a library full of hiden secrets left behind by the legendary Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad.
ACR was the second of the series to add an online feature, which has started to get a bit repetitive, As all they improved on was the fact that players can now customize their character wih ‘Abstergo Credit’s’ a lame excuse for currency.In this addition to the series Ubisoft added more interesting and detailed missions for the modern day character Desmond Miles who lives his ancestors life through the memory acesing machine known to the charcter as the animus, Set in a matrix-esque world in which Desmond has to escape the animus’ with the aid of the infamous Subject 16. During these missions we start to learn about the life of Desmond Miles, from growing up with his Assassin Parents hell-bent on hiding from the Abstergo the modern day templars to Desmond running away to New York to live a small quite life as a Bartender. Overall i would say the single player is definitley the main feature, with a great well thought up storyline based on true historic data. Also Ubisoft added the miniture meta-game ‘Den Defence’a great idea, if you bought assassins creed to play tower defense. I Would say Den defence is a great feature but i think Ubisoft were just clutching at straws when they made this add-on game. The game is a reasonable length and to to complete the story may take you around 10 hours depending on how quickly you play the game. The game also brings some features from the previous installment Assassins Creed Brotherhood. Such as the ability to recruit and train assassins. In Revelations they have adapted on this great feature by allowing you to take over whole cities. This is great but it can make the game slightly easy when in tough fights.
The multiplayer can be great but sadly it is tough to find a match and it is not set out to well. As well as expanding on the single player the multiplayer has also been improved and it has many more game types that the previous game. The multiplayer is also easy to follow as it has in game tutorials on how to eliminate targets. Unfortunately the maps are quite small and this makes finding people in crowds reasonably easy. Although it is still fun to play it does not compare to the single player experience and there is much to be expanded on.
This game is probably the best up to date and deserves a high rating due to its smooth gameplay and addictive storyline. If you enjoyed the previous Assassins Creed games there’s no reason to miss out this one!
