Assassin’s Creed Revelations Review

I loved the first Assassins Creed, the sequel wasn’t bad either everything after that has been pretty bad, unfortunately knowing that the games are bad doesn’t stop me form trying it out just in case. It’s kind of the same why everyone knows all the Call of Duty games after the first Modern Warfare are garbage, but that doesn’t stop people from playing them.

Revelations starts where the Brotherhood left off where Desmond suffers a breakdown and the other Assassin’s conciseness’s place him in a special safe zone. He now has to finish their stories in order to make sure that his memory is the only one left in his conciseness. If that sounds kinda boring believe me it is.

Gameplay is pretty much the same as all the other games, open world third person action. They did add a few new feature like the hookblade which is used to zip line through the city and pull enemies towards you to start up some combos. Bombs are back and there are now around 300 different variations that can be crafted. These are pretty cool features but not enough for the game to feel fresh.

I keep trying to get into the game I really do, I sat there for 10 hours and thats 7 hours more then I usually give a game to hook me and it just constantly felt like a chore. I do have to thank Revelations though because if it wasn’t for the game being so boring I probably wouldn’t have found so many gems on Hulu plus. If you’re a fan of the series then get the game, but I seriously recommend renting the game because you can easily beat and get the majority of achievements/trophies in a week. If you haven’t played any of the other games I would recommend skipping Revelations and just play Assassin’s Creed 1 and 2 instead.

Final verdict for Assassin’s Creed Revelations:

3.5 out of 5
