Does Assassins Creed Revelations Live Up To Its Hype Or Does It Falter To The Games Of The Year?

GamerFitNation's Gregory Laporte ask gamers whether or not Assassins Creed lives up to the hype? "Assassins Creed Revelations was just recently released this past Tuesday, in a month where it seems publishers and developers are absolutely smothering us with titles that are very high caliber. Assassins Creed Revelations is being pushed out among titles like Elder Scrolls V, Uncharted 3: Drake Deception, Batman: AC and other great titles such as Saints Row: The Third and Need for Speed. Will this game be allowed to breathe and survive in the cluster bomb of amazing creations this November? Let’s find out!"

Wow, I don't know I loves all but the 1st one.

I loved them all including the first. I thought the first one was great for its time and was an example of a game that couldnt have been done in the previous generation of consoles.

I think each game has been an improvement on the one before it. However they are still WAY TO EASY with no hard mode. I wish it was harder to fight hoards of guys because then you would actually have to be stealth.

The AC series has been one of my favorites this generation but Im burned out on them now. I used to be hyped for a new AC game and bought 1 and 2 on launch day.

Im sure I will still enjoy this game but now that there is one every year I dont have the time to get hyped for a new one. I will get this eventually, but Im not as excited for a NEW AC game anymore like I used to be, regardless of how good it is.

Not enough new game to pay another $60 especially when you can get a totally different GOTY experience with Skyrim, UC3, Batman, Darksouls, Resistance3 etc.

If you've never tried any Assassin's Creed game then this is a great game and get it but if you played AC2 and Brotherhood why would you pay another $60 for basically a Brotherhood 2.5

Did you play Oblivion, UC2, B:AA, Demon's Souls or R2? There is just as much "new game" and "totally different GOTY experience" in Assassin's Creed Revelations as there is in any of those game's sequels. Here's how game sequels work, slight tweeks to gameplay plus a new story. You can buy sequels and expect a totally different experience, that wouldn't be a sequel it'd be a new game.

No I think u misunderstand... I have bought all the games mentioned above with the exception of resistance 3; I just got finished playing revelations; a game that I had been excited for since its announcement but I can honestly and sadly say that I was dissappointed because like the guy up there said, it really feels like brotherhood 2.5 and not its own full game skyrim introduces a lot of new ideas a bigger world an awesome new story, epic drogon fights and a new skill upgrade system. Batman puts you in an openworld with tons of sidemissions. Uncharted 3 experiments with a new improved melee system and brings bigger setpieces than ever before, but revelations gives you a filler story with almost copy and pasted gameplay bring very few new things to the table. With that being said the whole point is your 60 dollars would be better spent elsewhere

I was going to reply to "Scottis" but "smashman98" explained it perfectly and I'd just be repeating what he said.

I picked those titles (skyrim, resistance3, batman etc) specifically because I bought them all and played them all and can honestly say that they are true sequels deserving of another $60.

Each of those titles continues on the story, characters, theme etc but they each improve so much from the previous titles that they can stand on their own. They are their own game by itself.

Revelation, not so much. I'll wait till it drops to $30 because that's how much new content I believe it contains.

N311V2378d ago

I see what you guys are saying and think that you're right. I guess I focus more an advancement of story rather than gameplay, if I liked the previous game's gameplay I don't feel the need for it to change. Sorry if I came off as aggressive, bad day.

Huh? This game has almost zero hype.

Aclay2379d ago (Edited 2379d ago )

It was a little disappointing to see the lower review scores than what I'm used to seeing for an Assassin's Creed title, but I'm still going to pick up Revelations (waiting to get it cheaper during the Black Friday sales) for the simple fact that I like almost everything about the Assassin's Creed titles, and I think I'll probably enjoy Revelations a lot regardless of the reviews.

The stealth gameplay (although AC is more action oriented) is one of many things that just keeps me coming back to AC time and time again, because there's just not a lot of 3rd person stealth action titles these days.
