I think it was a amazing game. I liked it but i have to say the story is getting boring. Going to place after place battling templars. It isn't getting funner but boring. The best part for me customizing my cloths Colors FTW
Overall I will say that I enjoyed Revelations as a whole, but there was some pretty obvious designed mistakes with that game that I just don’t understand how they made it to the final version of the game. Take for instance a contested Den when the Templars attack. You make your way to the Den and fight a couple of Templars before you can interact with the Den door so you can open up the now Infamous Tower Defense mini game. As you get through the Tower Defense games they get increasingly more and more difficult with them finally coming to a final wave of Templars pushing a massive cannon siege weapon that 1 shots defenses in mere seconds.
Defeating the siege weapon is quite challenging no matter how you put it. Luckily for me I beat it finally with a lot of strategy and a great degree of difficulty. You basically have to have 20 riflemen alive and ready to attack the siege weapon by the time it comes out. Not to mention you have to use your own cannon to fire back at it. However you have to hit it at least 2 to 3 times with your own cannon to really make a difference. Now after ALL that work you successfully defend your den, but lets say you don’t win and lose your den to the Templars. You then load into a world where the Templars have your Den back. Here is where the game fails MISERABLY…
All you need to do is kill two random highlighted targets that wander around close to where you loaded or a Captain that just stands there doing nothing waiting for a knife in the back. Then you climb the tower to light the pyre to signal you have taken the den back. Here is the point. It takes LESS than 30 seconds and only TWO kills (tops) to get the den back but it required hundreds of troops and almost 10 minutes for the Templars to bring an army at you only to defend it with a captain or two small officers.
This is RIDICULOUS. Ubisoft really fell short with this game and could have made it great. The only saving grace is the storyline. It's ok, but just not good.

Played Assassin's Creed? Pretty good right? Ambitious and awesome for a new IP huh?
Hey there. Played Assassin's Creed II? Pretty good huh? Like, AMAZING right? Incredibe the amount of improvements they've made from the first one. The graphics, story, dialogue, all good.
Hey, you play Assassin's Creed Brotherhood? It's like Assassin's Creed II but 100% better right? Which is crazy because II was so freakingly amazingly awesome and yet, somehow, someway, this is better. Absolutely amazing.
Hey, check this out. It's Assassin's Creed: Revalations. It's the 4th installment in the series, the 3rd and last installment in the Assassin's Creed II story arc and you know what? It's AWESOME. Just enough improvements to keep the game fresh and exciting and build some excitement for Assassin's Creed III.
It will be familiar, but in a good way. There's plenty of new stuff. Enjoy the great story and look forward to next year's installment.
