GameInfo: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is a action game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise developed and published by Ubisoft Montreal. Throughout the course of the game, the three protagonists from the previous games are featured: Ezio, Altair, and Desmond. It has been announced that it is the last game to feature Ezio Auditore da Firenze and the final game to be set in the Renaissance era.
|Gaming Chaos Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is easily the best AC game to be released as far as content and gameplay is concerned. It’s a huge improvement over Brotherhood but the story isn’t nearly as memorable as the plot in AC2. It has enough things to do throughout the city to keep you busy for hours after the story finishes and the multiplayer will entertain people that want something a little slower-paced. If you can actually manage to put down your copies of MW3 or Skyrim I’d definitely recommend it, especially to fans of the franchise. Read Full Review||90/100|

Gamereactor UK My biggest complaint with Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is the lack of a proper antagonist to get to know. It is not until the very end that a villain with proper malice is presented, and you never really get to know him.
Aside from that niggle, the gameplay has never been more varied, and the polish the mechanics have received over the years is clear to see. In a very crowded gaming season I must still recommend you go out and pick up Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. It entertains you with phenomenal music, and well crafted story (albeit without a proper villain), and overall it is just a lot of fun to play. Read Full Review
|CVG Ultimately, then, this latest Assassin’s Creed game isn’t a complete success. The reliance on recycled gameplay is its biggest flaw, especially if you’ve played the last two games all the way through. But when it’s good, it’s really good. There are moments that make enduring the frequent dips in quality worth it, and the sheer volume of content ensures this is excellent value for money. Read Full Review||80/100|
|Gamertag Radio I’ll admit, I slept on the Assassins Creed series. In fact, I rushed through 75% of the first one when I received my review copy from Ubisoft. I wanted to play the Assassin’s Creed II before putting my hands on Revelations, but then the review wouldn’t have come out until Thanksgiving. That being said, I truly enjoyed AC:R and still have tons to do. I’ve put in a good 10-12 hours of gameplay between the main story and side quests. In fact, I’ve spent more time on this than I have on COD:MW3 (and that should count for something). Read Full Review||80/100|
|Good Game It’s definitely time for the series to take a different direction if Ubisoft intend to carry it on. They have a great formula and they stick to it because they know what their fans love. But there’s nothing truly new about the gameplay in Revelations that really makes you go ‘wow’. Read Full Review||77/100|
|IncGamers Revelations, the fourth game in the series (and the third featuring Ezio Auditore da Firenze as lead-protagonist) provides that same level of polish and technical achievement but, sadly, brings almost nothing new to the party. As a result, Revelations is an enjoyable experience, but one that gets old much more quickly than previous Assassin’s Creed titles. Read Full Review||70/100|
|PixlBit “Out of every game I’ve played this year, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is without a doubt the biggest disappointment. For a series whose name automatically garners praise and adoration from the gaming community, this title is a blemish on its reputation. All of the passion and soul created by carefully weaving the ongoing plotline into evolving gameplay feels abandoned with Revelations. Without it, all that’s left is a game with a convoluted story and gameplay that is practically identical to Brotherhood.” Read Full Review||60/100|
