X360A Review: Assassin's Creed: Revelations
Written Monday, November 14, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
This is a momentous occasion indeed, with the story of Ezio Auditore da Firenze drawing to a close, it marks the end of an era for the Assassin's Creed franchise. Assassin's Creed: Revelations is the fourth game in the series, and brings several new gameplay mechanics to the table, like Den Defence, the hookblade and more. But keeping a series fresh for so many instalments is a big ask.
It's the return of two master assassins as both Altair and Ezio return, but can they keep the enviable Assassin's Creed pedigree going following the consecutive high points of Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood, or is it high time to put the old dogs to sleep? Is Revelations more of the same, and if so, can that be considered a bad thing? And what of the multiplayer, dammit? What of it?!
