My favourite character Altair is back but have not much play time (BTW it is where I started to get interested in the game). You are controlling an ageing Ezio who making fun of his age and difficulties to get the things done as he used to do. The game is far less developed than previous instalment for me.
OK you have 2 or 3 novelties but really there are not ground breaking ideas as it used to be on AC2 and ACB. One of the aspect I missed the most is the creed aspect of the game. It's like you try to re-establish a creed which lost its way but at the end not much has been done about it. Ok that the bad bit gone here the good bit (more or less).
The DRM is gone and that's very good. The story is not at the level of the previous games but it is still OK and you have the possibility to control 3 main characters (even if Ezio is the one you control the most). Which in a way is a good idea but badly exploited, as I do believe that every character you controlled should have a much important impact on the story.
The mechanism of the game has been refined and even if you are a not a fan of controlling an ageing Ezio, the tools his using are appropriate to his physical aptitude.
The game is good to buy as long as you don't buy it for more than £5.
If you are a fan of the series and have completed the previous 3 games, then this is definitely worth finishing as it wraps up a few bits really well and feels like a finale of sorts. There are however a few issues with this game. It is the same game we have all played 3 times before with little evolution from the previous chapter, and the game is not without bugs. I will sort the review into bits, you can choose those you feel relevant to your decision!
Takes forever but fair enough, its a big game. You need to activate it once online which is ok, the previous "always on DRM" is no longer here which is a relief. If you have Windows 8 then technically it is not supported. Ubisoft support will sarcastically tell you this and almost belittle you if you contact them. The game WILL run, however you will possibly have trouble updating it with new patches, they crash during install which can be fixed with a workaround up to version 1.02. This also happens to windows 7 users however. I played the game in its 'shopped' state in the end with no updates, and no game-breaking bugs. Desmond's memory sections ran in a window for me, although at full res, there was just no way to full-screen it. The rest was fine.
Same game. A few additions such as bombs, parachutes and zip-lines come into play and there are less side-missions than before, which is a good thing. The bombs add a certain tactical element which I admit I only used on a few occasions. The parachutes are often useful and sometimes essential, worth keeping your inventory stocked with them! There is nothing worse than jumping from a building before realizing you have none left......ouch.
Without giving away any details the story is worth it. Half way through the game it really kicks off. But from the start you can see that Ezio has matured. His appearance (some describe it as 'ugly') is certainly different. He seems a man who has been through a lot and I think that was the intention. He has matured in many ways, reflected in the games love-interest. Whereas in Assassins Creed II he started by climbing in the window of a young girl and having sex with her, here he seems different and more genuine with this one. Refreshing and you give more of a damn about it. The ending, just wow. Emotions run high.
Perhaps we were spoilt from the first game - it has always been a looker. The details on the PC version however are always there. Walking through the streets with the graphics maxed out are impressive, you can really see all the little details in the surroundings and it must have been a pain staking job to get them to this level, the only issue is it is nothing we have not seen in previous iterations in the series. If you have a console and are considering that then definitely go for PC if your's will run it. PC's will render at 1080p native, and thus have over a million more pixels than their up-scaled console counterparts.
The best, by far. AC2 came close of course, the same writer wrote those pieces too. These just have more variety, and although you may enjoy a theme or become accustomed to it, they will change as the game progresses. Reflecting the mood of the city.
I played this game with a controller (Xbox 360). It just seemed and felt right for me, it's how I have played the previous. There is the same issue with such games as they are supposed to also be console friendly - the "one button for multiple actions" mantra can sometimes sting you, but you know that probably if you have played the games before.
So to sum-up buy it. For me it signifies the end of the AC games as pending any true evolution in the series I will not be playing any more of them. Don't expect anything revolutionary, but as the title suggests, revelations are the name of this game.
We have a minigame to defend your territory, you place assassins on the roof's leading to your base and fend off templars. This almost never happens though because its rare to get that much attention from them and seems to be even rarer to occur even when you are fully noticed by them.
We have enemies that try and assassinate you here and there, they are easily killed but add a good level of tension to the game when they appear.
We have explosives to blow stuff up and a hook on the end of a blade to aid in climbing and swinging and whatnot. The explosives I never really used because why should I when I can already beat anyone or simply slip by them if I need to go unnoticed?
We have side missions WITH your assassin recruits (when they are promoted to den leaders), which give them a bit of personality but seem to defeat their own purpose, you are meant to be teaching them, but instead seem to do all the work and usually take the kill for you're own in the end. Seems more like you're just rubbing it in that you're better.
A new city, new people, new background on Desmond, new outside world, new look into Altair's life.
The background on Desmond make's him seem like an actual person which is nice, he never got much notice before so he was just sort of a side character. You actually sympathise with him by the end. Altair's history is suprisingly sad, seeing him grow old and suffer is quite depressing even if you can still kick ass. (outside Ezio history that is)
BUT despite all this, I didn't like this game nearly as much as 2 or brotherhood. Mainly because there are no main characters in this game apart from Ezio. Every other person you meet is given no time to do anything that useful while you're looking or work with you in any meaningful way, or talk about anything not related to a mission. We knew Leonardo, La Volpe, Bartholomew, Claudia, but now they are gone and not even replaced. You have 3 friends in the city, one is a love interest and is a decent character, another is seemingly unable to do anything without you (how else would templars rule the city?) and the other you just work for and barely speak to (despite him once calling me "old friend", that really made me stop and go "seriously?"), there are no leaders of the three factions and you only get one mission for each.
And the targets are boring as hell, you barely get to know anything about any of them and they don't seem to do anything that bad apart from stand in the way of you opening a door. (your ultimate goal in this game is to open a door. a little big anticlimactic) In AC2 we got to know each target and hate them all for what they did, it was good and drove you forward with a clear goal and reason to kill them. But here I just did it because I wanted the game over more or less.
And what the hell happened to 16? He appeared like three times and didn't do much, at least Becca, Shaun and Lily had some presence and purpose, he was just sort of there.
Characters and story hit an all time low in this game. I'd reccommend watching the start and end cinematics and pinning you're hopes on AC3.
