I love the Assassin’s Creed series, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next installment. Unfortunately, however, it’s turned out to be a bit of a disappointment.
I’ve written a review of the game for AusGamers, and as I point out there, although the gameplay is fun and solid, it’s like it has no soul.Instead of waiting a year, Ubisoft has decided to cash in with a somewhat lazy entry intothe series.
So make no mistake, this is an enjoyable ride for those who have invested their time and money into the series. Its world is well crafted, and the variety in gameplay keeps things interesting for the 15-20 hours you’ll devote to the main story.
But be weary – for a game called Revelations there are very few to be found until the end. A cut-scene at the end of the game sets things up for the third installment, and for those eager to advance the story it provides some juicy tidbits about the so-called First Civilisation, but honestly, did it require slogging through an additional game? It’s difficult to defend.
