After the excellent brotherhood, in which Ezio went head to head with the Borgias, now he's in Istanbul, and after a few keys to get into the vault under Masyaf. He's aged considerably in the short time gap between games, which is all the more strange because AC2 was set over a large period of time, and the only ageing was his growth of a beard. But forgivable continuity errors aside, Ezio is now exploring a new city and country.
Maybe it's the change from Italy to a period that i'm less familiar with, but the game just felt less involving for some reason. The colours are also weird, with contrast between the city's buildings and inhabitants nausea inducing at times. The controls have also been remapped to different buttons, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but can be distracting in the thick of the fighting. Ezio now has a greater arsenal of ranged weaponry, which primarily consists of dodgy thrown explosives which are made from the junk that he finds around he city. There is also a semi optional tower defence game related to the towers which the player liberates from the Templars, and an awareness system to support it, which is made quite annoying by the removal of most ways to reduce one's awareness from the enemy. The story is average, possibly as both good guys and bad guys drop in and out of the narrative to fast for us to really know them, but it does have good moments, and a few good characters in there. The flashbacks of Altairs life were also excellent.
So whilst it's not a particularly new or innovative game, its too well made to be bad, but too similar to the previous AC games to be really unique. But it does continue the story well, and even gives us time to flesh out Desmond .

Very enjoyable, especially if you are fans of the series. The game has solid gameplay as always, fighting and climbing the rooftops of Constantinople is excellent fun. The new additions of hookblade and bombs are welcome, making climbing easier and providing more variation when dealing with enemies, either for distraction or destruction.

The "Den Defense" feature that they've added wasn't to my liking, it's a tower defense type mini-game where you have to place assassins in appropriate positions in order to defeat waves of enemies that attempt to destroy your headquarters. Some may enjoy it, but personally I'd rather actually fight them than sit on a roof and point. It didn't seem like it really fit in the game, other than proving Ezio is a leader of assassins.
The usual "collect 100 feathers/fragments" feature reappears to extend the game for no real reason/reward.

There are some amazing scenes where you explore Altair's past, and the Multiplayer is enjoyable. A worthwhile expansion on a good game, the story alone is worth picking it up for. However, you should remember that it is just another expansion, and that not that much has changed gameplay-wise since AC 2 and Brotherhood.

Although it feels like AC: Brotherhood it has better presentation and more diverse gameplay. I really liked the missions being different and the way the story unfolds. But even if you do not like the gameplay, this game has one of the best endings I have ever seen, maybe after Mass Effect 1 ending. I absolutely advise, no I urge you to go buy it so you can see how Ezio's and Altair's stories are threaded together. If you do not want to play it, do yourself a favor and go watch a video of the ending.

I have just completed Skyrim and have been feelilng withdrawal symptoms. No more: I had some experience of the Assassin games when they started and whilst admiring the superb graphics could not get involved. This game changed all that - I find it absolutely engrossing. I gather the improved series started with 'Brotherhood' - that is my next purchase. Great stuff.

I'm not going to pretend I'm into computer games, I bought this as a present for someone, they were pleased and have said it's a great addition, I sat and watched them play it and the graphics are amazing and engaging, and the game concept seems to have great playability.

continuous good service and deliver with this seller.
Good quality game and packaging.
Gameplay is nice, but if this is your first Assassins Creed and you do have the money and time, I would go back to the begging to get use to the style and story mode.

Return to form for AC. 2 was great, Brotherhood was OK but Revelations is a return to form. Great! This is 1st game I started to play on my new Xbox 360 250GB after using my wife's laptop with windows 360 controller. Sooo... much better.

I found this AC game amazing and really loved Ezio's new hook blade which you can use to make climbing easier. I highly recommend getting this if you are a big AC fan and you what to carry on the story from brotherhood.

Absolutely love this game and have always played all the others to the very end, a bit gutted with the new one though... Can't stand the stupid clothes and guns etc... Huge let down I felt!
