Ubisoft expands and prevails yet again with Assassins Creed Revelations

After Assassins Creed Brotherhood, one of the most praised franchised games last year, Assassins Creed Revelations brings an ever expanding world as players can play three of the most iconic characters in video game history; Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Altair ibn La-Ahad, and Desmond Miles. For most of the gameplay, gamers can play as Ezio, but portions of Revelations let you play as Altair as well. The story continues after Brotherhood, as Desmond is in a comma stuck in the Animus, the machine that lets Desmond relive his ancestor's memories.

 

To keep himself alive he goes into a safe mode in the Animus called the Black Room. As he is in the Black Room, he discovers Subject 16, an assassin who was abducted by Abstergo before Desmond. He basically guides Desmond through the Black Room until the very end of the game. As 16 helps him to gain consciousness, Desmond has to find memories of Ezio and Altair that he has not been to until his ancestors have nothing left to teach him.

 

The storyline is so phenomenal that it will attract casual and serious gamers that either played the Assassins Creed games or want to know what the story is behind the game. In this game, Assassins Creed players are free to do whatever they want in Constantinople in 1511 AD. Aside from the storyline of Revelations, multiplayer has improved significantly since Brotherhood.

 

The player will still play as Templars, but there are a variety of customizations from characters, editing your profile to match your standards and editing your classes to fit your type of gameplay. The whole feeling and mindset matches what the gamer plays, whether it is a simple team deathmatch or a capture the flag match which can be played either for fun or for competing. Both the casual and hardcore gamer will enjoy the improvement of the Revelations multiplayer.

 

These improvements have made the game exceptional; however, the game is not at all perfect. The game has a few bugs when it comes to controlling the movement of a character and the character spazzes out of control for a quick second. Another problem is that the texture for the graphics usually fades out or looks like a muddy canvas for only a few seconds.

 

Aside from the few seconds of bugs and the technical graphic error, the game truly deserves praise. Out of the games of 2011, Assassins Creed Revelations is genuinely a different type of game that is sensational and well developed.
