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.
Should have rented first.
Not paticulary what I hoped for.
Graphics are the best I have seen in a ps3 game yet!
But, it was like they took everthing fom AC Brotherhood and made it worse.
Id rather play brotherhood again than this.
Story is not that great either.
The whole thing kinda bored me. :/
Kind of a waste of 60 bucks.
Still worth the rent though! But I bought it.
coulda did with out it.

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.
