Assassin's Creed Revelations (PC DVD) by Ubisoft
I played Revelations with a small amount of cynicism. My approach was much that although I'd enjoyed AC2 and Brotherhood, I was probably just in for more Assassins V Templars story excuses and a lot of stabbing. The direction that the story initially took didn't improve my faith, as it looked like an excuse to backtrack down story paths taken before. However, it rapidly changed my mind, and evolved into the richest experience to date.

When an aspiring actress hits a runaway dog with her car, she adopts it to save it from being put down at the dog pound, and it proves to be a loving and life-saving pet. Unfortunately, it quickly dawns on her that something is wrong, and after a few savage displays of aggression it becomes clear she's adopted an attack dog that was trained by racists to attack black people.
Unwilling to lose hope, she… Read more
