They took everything good about the assassins creed video games and made it the worst. The hook blade is the same button as drop causing you to fall to your death. Also all the missions leave you on the sidelines instead of fighting your enemies. There is a new army feature which makes you a general, its so boring, you sit there and place your soldiers and watch them fight, if I wanted to play risk I would have rented it. Please get back to action and forget the story line, if this game was really any good like the critics say it would not be available now on the rental queue.
This is an absolutely perfect game unless your playing for the main story. Revilations doesn't move the main story arc at all except saying were Desmond and the other assassins need to go. But it does tell Desmond's backstory provided you can find the Animus memory (which replaces flags, feathers) the gameplay was awesome the added hook blade made free-running so much better and made combat look cooler. You do need an online pass to play multiplayer but they give you a free 3 day trial, from what I've played it looks like they reused maps from brotherhood and added a couple new ones. But all in all 10/10
