When an assassin has defeated all of his enemies, what is left for him?
Ezio Auditore must leave his life behind in search of answers, in search of the truth. In Assassin's Creed Revelations, master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of the legendary mentor Altaïr, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path – one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.
In addition to the culmination of Ezio's award-winning story, a refined and expanded online multiplayer experience returns with new and additional modes, maps, and characters, allowing you to test your slaying skills against others from around the world.
BECOME DEADLIER THAN EVER Take on the lethal skills of a wiser, more efficient and deadlier Ezio. Swiftly eliminate your adversaries by deploying a new arsenal of weapons and abilities, such as enhanced free-running and hook blade combat. Experience new levels of gameplay customization with bomb crafting, and use heightened Eagle Vision to overcome your enemies and the environment.
HERALD THE RETURN OF A LEGEND Experience the return of Altaïr, the hero of the original Assassin’s Creed, as a playable character.
JOURNEY TO CONSTANTINOPLE Explore the vibrant and exotic Constantinople, the crossroads of the 16th Century Ottoman Empire and the intersection of two legends of their times, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad and Ezio Auditore da Firenze. This vast city provides more diverse environments than ever before encountered, enabling faster travel via zipline, aerial assaults, travel by sea and more.
TEST YOUR SKILLS AGAINST THE BEST A critically acclaimed multiplayer experience gets even better, with all-new team modes and unlimited replay value.
Pros: Great game! great story line, coming from/based on true times! I would have loved to have lived during that time and had been an assassin! hahaha
Cons: I am not an assassin...
Other Thoughts: Get this game! Even the Multiplayer is pretty neat to place.

Tech Level: 5/5
Pros: * Nice Graphics improvements (looks great on PC, terrible on XBOX, so definitely stick with the PC version) -- water looks significantly better and so does lighting and fog as light comes down through bridges onto the street. * Some unique mission designs that were quite a bit of fun -- visiting/escaping Masyaf at the beginning was cool, the big mission going into the harbor to investigate Manuel P.'s weapons was fun (especially escaping, once you knew the right route), the tombs with the waterfalls and fire were cool, the final mission was definitely different, and enjoyable, although I enjoy fighting about a million guys at once by myself via hand-to-hand combat (swords/blades, no guns) the most. No mission will ever compare to the "rescue caterina" mission in Brotherhood -- that was the most well-designed (and fun) mission so far in all 4 games. * Master Assassin Missions - fun * Enjoyed finally being able to use the parachute (to assassinate) in one of the Master Assassin Missi
Cons: * Horses are gone (I really liked being able to ride around on a horse throughout most of Brotherhood), but maybe it's a cultural thing for Constantinople * Dens. I thought the Dens were ridiculous with regard to the rifle barricades on them that made it virtually impossible to even approach a Den without being shot through walls, etc. * Hookblade -- thought it was pretty silly actually. Stabbing with a hook on the end of the blade doesn't make much sense. Just go back to the regular hidden blades, please. * Ezio's rendering -- it's only 4 years after Brotherhood, and he's only ~53, but they rendered him like he's in his 60s. Should've been similar to Brotherhood so you don't feel like an ancient person. * Ezio's armor -- no explanation of why he's not wearing the Brutus armor -- I didn't necessary like the Brutus armor, but there needs to be some consistency to the storyline - the storyline is what makes this game, so let's keep it consistent and explained. * Janisaries carrying
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a pretty good game. It doesn't compare to Brotherhood or Assassin's Creed II, but it's still good. They need to try not to over-complicate things with too many bells & whistles (hook blade, bombs, Dens, etc.). Focus on good mission design (like the caterina mission I referenced in Brotherhood), and just let us do our thing with hidden blades, Crossbow & sword. Can't wait till the next game!
I was able to run the game in 1920x1200 resolution with everything cranked to maximum settings.
