Just want to add as well that I was thrilled by the box itself...entertained me for quite a while, opening and closing it xD Would've paid the same price for the box alone, that's how much I like it!
Overall it's a great item and would totally recommend it to people.
However, only two downsides to the series in general:
- If you, like me, have played the games since the first one, by the time you get to Revelations, or even to Assassin's Creed 3, you'll be a bit bored or even tired of the games. Still, they're worth it.
- Secondly, the mission Secondary Objectives: If you are a bit of a completionist and like to unlock or those achievements and even the 100% SYNC feature of the game, these Secondary Objectives will lead you to hair ripping levels of anger. They're not impossible, but some of them, either by sheer creative stupidity, or even because of slight glimpse of bad console porting, will make you look like you have Tourette's.
Other than this, I highly recommend this game and the other ones of the Assassin's Creed series.
New players can safely skip the original Assassin's Creed and go straight for AC II, which neatly recaps the events of AC I in its intro. Brotherhood built on the theme of AC II very well, and both can be bought very cheaply now. Revelations is a great reward to those players who've loved the series so far, but you need to have built up that love to overlook a few flaws. Revelations has been referred to as Brotherhood 2 by many people, and that's a fair point. It feels like a stepping stone from the AC II era towards whatever AC III will be.
All of that said, the graphics are beautiful and the gameplay can still give you that heart-in-your-mouth feeling. A recent addition to the series was the option to complete stages with 50% sync or 100% sync, depending on whether you achieved only the main aim or if you did everything exactly as the protagonist did it in the past (he never existed, but suspend your disbelief). I almost wish the makers made it mandatory to complete a certain number of missions at 100%, because it's certainly possible to breeze through this and wonder what the fuss is about. Challenge yourself and you'll find it a lot more gripping.
For its contents, I am really happy. I have never watched Assassin's Creed: Embers, so its a good bonus for me. The Assassin's Creed Soundtrack was also something I am really happy. I love the tracks 1 - 3. But, I am having trouble trying to find the album information online (either on Google search, iTunes or WIndows Media Player online metatag search). Then ofcourse, the game itself and the bonus single-player side missions. The game itself came with paper manual, which I am always expecting (I bought some new games that didn't come with paper manual as they are saving paper e.g. Assassin's Creed II).
I almost forgot, the graphic book was also included. It's not something of a wow item - but it is not something I wouldn't dismiss as well.
Great item, great price. Overall, OK!
Only factor that made this rating a 4-star is because of the lack of cushioning inside the box to prevent the items from shaking inside the box when the box is moved.
Overall, the game is not too bad. However, there are a lot of issues; for example, the event trigger zones are too small and it happened more than once to miss them with a few centimeters (in the game's reference system, of course :)). For example, in the race minigames you must make sure you're touching the "gates" exactly on the position that was intended, otherwise you might miss them and have to get back.
When the Templars attack one of the Thieves Dens, you must play a kind of Tower Defense game, where you place barricades on the street and shooters on the rooftops; moreover, the minigame is quite boring and not very well tuned. This is NOT what I want from an Assasssin's Creed game! If I want to play Tower Defense, there are better options out there!
Other smaller issues: there is a guy called Vali cel Tradat (in fact it should be Vali cel Trădat... hm... looks like Amazon doesn't properly handle Unicode characters), which is a Wallachian noble (Wallachia was on Romania's territory; the name is Romanian); despite the fact that, according to the Credits, the game was partially produced and tested at Ubisoft Bucharest, it seems like they never bothered to ask someone at the Romanian studio how to pronounce the name, so the result is a Wallachian (Romanian) character whose name is spelled in an Italian style by a Turkish character :)
So, overall, the game is not bad, but not great either. It looks like it was rushed and they weren't able to fine tune it. This opinion is supported by the release of a 700+ MB patch right after the game was launched...
If you are a fan of the series, you should buy this game, too (but if you are a real fan, then you probably already bought it :)). If you want to start playing the series, DON'T buy this one, you'll be dissapointed!
