Graphics--The visual affects in this game are all but completely ridiculous. The visual arts department didn't scale back one bit in this series and it's great to see the continuity in massive free-roam board size.
Abilities & Treasures--AC: Revelations has definitely stepped up character abilities. It seems that some of the game designers have an affinity for chemical experimentation as well. My personal favorite: The Blood Bomb. I won't tell you exactly what it does, but it is pretty funny. Maybe I was a little intoxicated while playing, but it made it all the more hilarious. In the midst of all the fighting, scrambling for hiding spots, and OH SO fun air assassinations, finding little treasures here and there are still part of the fun. It's like hide and seek with the U.S. Treasury.
If you are a fan of the other series, you'll love this too. They've continued with all the great things they've done in the past and added more to it. This will be one of the few games I'll keep in my collection because there is so much you can do.
I started out this game DESPERATELY trying to like it... Until I realized that I was playing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood all over again. Nothing wrong with that, but... Since there are so many other games this holiday season, I would much rather try something new. This baby is going back. I may rent again after the busy launch season.

If your been following the series then you need this game. There answers for the giant cliffhanger and the main story. I love the addition of bombs. The A.I. may seem a little off at some points but that's hardly noticeable. If you've played any of the other games then you should grab this game as soon as you can. I give Assassin's Creed Revelations 10 out of 10.
