It’s Ubisoft revealing something again here. The title triggers memories of “Myst Revelations”. And perhaps Ubisoft used the same music choir in Myst and Assasins Creed.
The story is set in Constantinople, in the years that it converts to the modernly Turkish city of Istanbul, the city which lies along the Bosporus, seperating Asia from Europe. Desmond’s mind is trapped in the Animus, since Assasins Creed Brotherhood did not end very pleasant. In order to escape this coma, he has to complete memories of Ezio Auditore, and Altaïr.
Assasins Creed Revelations is in its right a new masterpiece from Ubisoft. However, as it is with sequels in movies, it lacks something. Assasins Creed II and Brotherhood were much more dramatic than Revelations. Although lacking the moviematical sense, Revelations is still a very good play.
The main story came to me a little short. But there is lots of stuff to do besides the story. Conquering commander areas can be quite challenging. And the good old jump and run in various dungeons is still a lot of fun.
A new element in Revelations are bomb weapons. In one way they make attacks more easy than previous games. But it´s your own choice and you can ofcourse use melee weapons if you like. I especially like the poison weapons. If an enemy gets hit, he starts waving his arms around, and gets crazy, before he drops dead on the ground.
For the fans, Assasins Creed Revelations is absolutely a must have.
