GEV says: Few franchises have captured our imagination this console generation quite like Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series. Whether it be in the Holy Land during the Crusades, or Renascence Italy, these games have brought a very strong combination of great gameplay and strong story with a sci-fi twist. And while they’ve consistently been imperfect games, we’ve seen a progression forward from game to game over the course of the series.
Enter Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the fourth game in the series and third featuring the Italian Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze. While the game stand strong on the foundation of the games that came before it, and lives up to it’s title by revealing many of the mysteries left unanswered in previous games, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations takes a few unfortunate missteps along the way that make it feel just a little bit less worthy than it’s predecessors.
