This is really where the game shines in terms of the whole franchise, the writing for this instalment is excellent and there are very few moments where things donít work script wise. Ezio is a character that has grown over the years and this is the part where his story comes full circle, his character has changed from the brash youth and it is reflected in the script for Revelations nicely.Multiplayer
What began as a bit of an experiment for the franchise in Brotherhood has grown over time into a solid gameplay mode and now itís back with a vengeance. Bigger and definitely better than before we sadly only had a short time with it on the PS3 version. Since most of our multiplayer is geared towards the 360 due to the amount of friends on Xbox Live over the PSN.
What we played has convinced us that the changes are for the better, the new deathmatch style modes are fun and there are other modes that are worthy of the series. Thereís a nice new level of character customisation and the perks/unlocks are better implemented this time around. Unfortunately for our time with the game, the PSN seemed to be suffering from some intermittent lag and a difficulty to get into a match.
So we didnít cover the multiplayer side of the game as much as we really would have liked to. We can say without a shadow of a doubt though, if you liked Brotherhoodís fresh take on online play, then Revelations truly takes it to the next level with better kill animations, more level rewards and a whole plethora of unlocks.
The new maps are nicely done and there are at least two introductory sessions to get you to grips with the game. With an expanded leaderboard and also a friend dare system, similar in many ways to Autolog from Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit there are numerous ways to enjoy the online side of Revelations.Short and sweet
10-12 hours is the projected time to finish Ezioís tale and see most of what the game has to offer. There are hidden tombs and there are a few secrets that we have deliberately failed to mention, since weíre not big on those kind of spoilers. All in all though itís a good send off for Ezio and Altair...now we canít wait to see whatís coming in Creed 3.
We also recommend that you only watch Embers after you finish Revelations.
Embers is the finale to Ezioís story and you donít want to miss it.
