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.
`Revelations' is the third, and of the time of writing, last of the Ezio based `Assassin's Creed' games, but this time it has added Altair, the hero of the first game, in flashback. Not only do you get to run around historic Turkey, but you also get to play VR levels as everyone's favourite dull hero Desmond. As a core package `Revelations' is as good as any game in the series. Ezio must jump around and assassinate people in a quest to find some strange discs that will open an ancient door. He will meet allies on the way, fall in love and kill plenty of Templars. It is almost identical to the last game. Normally sequels are better because they add something to the experience, but in the case of almost everything added in `Revelations', it makes for a poorer experience.
There are gameplay elements that are included to try and diversify the style. One new game mode is an awful tower defence mini game that is almost impossible to win. There are also cart racing/fighting sections that are abysmal, the flimsy cart falls to pieces. Why would a game encourage you to build your fighting and stealth skills, only to lumber you with tower defence and racing, when you have no clue? Probably the worst new element is the first person VR levels with Desmond - these are borderline unplayable and not fun. Other elements of the game are taken from the previous games and ruined slightly; shop buying is no longer as fun as it was, as little profit is made.
It would suggest from the list of negatives I have of the game that it was not a fun experience; this is not the case as the core is as solid as ever. The free running and assassination elements are great. The story is probably the best the series has had yet, jumping hundreds of years into the past and the future. The slow drip feed of information was enough for me to want to come back for more. The problems with `Revelations' are not down to the central mechanics of the game, but Ubisoft's inclination to provide more each time. Hopefully, the upcoming `Assassin's Creed 3' will be a more stripped down affair and supply the basics well.
