As with every Assassin Creed game Revelations has retained the base experience of the series, while adding its flair, Revelations is no exception, some of the new additions include a hook blade, which allows you to use both ziplines and to perform longer jumps when parkouring, another new addition is a tower defence type mode to defend your assassin dens from the Templar and their allies while not overly complicated it adds a fun minigame diversion.
Brotherhood + Bugs
For those on Nvidea cards, there is a horrific graphical glitch which makes the screen strobe and shake. Honestly, I thought it was representing the characters shattered mind at first, but after it carried on too long, I found the solution on google.

Brotherhood – Setting
While Constantinople is a beautiful city, and one lovingly recreated in ACR, I preferred Rome and found the NPCs didn’t act authentic and looked and acted more like roman NPC in a costume more suited to Islamic culture.
The mix of English and Arabic was particularly jarring. I would have preferred the characters spoke Arabic and had subtitles.
Brotherhood + Characters.
The cast of new characters were fatalistic, I loved the rascal who led the Constantinople assassins, and the librarian who caught Ezio eye, they both added a great contrast to the solemn Ezio, the local drama involving heirs and thrones also played out very well, and added some depth to the city and its problems.
Worth a buy?
All Assassins Creed games provide great value for money, and revelations are no different, I suggest waiting for a steam sale whoever, as this like much of the series is heavily discounted.
