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

Assassin's Creed Revelations is an eye popping gorgeous game. The story is brain bustingly amazing. There is so much right about this game, and then there is some wrong in this game.
There can be lags when you're climbing up a building and jumping up onto the roof from the side. The frame rate isn't the greatest, just like most of the other Assassin's Creed games. When you circle the camera around Ezio or Desmond or even Altair, that's right, you finally get to play as Altair again, the screen looks as if some of the picture is jumping apart. I can deal with that, but some people would end up having a stroke, those are the people who are obsessed with Assassin's Creed games and wanting them to be perfect.
They capture Ezio's age perfectly. The fact that he's somewhere around 50 now is the fact that in some of the cut scenes after you jump up a building or run after someone, Ezio is out of breath. It's a perfect feature to the game that ups the scoring, the fact that they have some realism in it.
Definitely a good game with the story and the graphics, but they should really consider a better engine for the sanctity of the frame rate.
