Ezio's closure comes in high.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is out tomorrow, and today’s review day. The final Ezio entry in the Assassin’s Creed saga received good praise from critics, scoring 8s and 9s across the board. Well, mainly. There were a few 7s in there as well. And a 5.

See the full list of reviews below.

    The scores are pretty much what I expected because from my opinion, all Assassin’s Creed games features the same formula of game progression but has the exciting storyline and great gameplay. Considering the fact that Ubisoft releases Assassin’s Creed games annually lately, the scores are quite good.

    I really hope that Assassin’s Creed III will be a 50% departure and different than the previous Assassin’s Creed games, as I am sure that gamers hate to play the same thing all over again yearly.

    I agree with the majority of the reviews. I’ve always been a big fan of the AC series and I fairly enjoyed Revelations (got it delivered a few days early :) ). I really didn’t see much that was wrong with Revelations. It improved on the combat slightly, not a whole lot. The bombs I felt were an OK addition to the game, didn’t add to much to the game but didn’t feel completely pointless as I found myself using them for time to time.

    In terms of the games being similar every year it kinda makes me wonder why COD has been getting constant 9/10 scores for the past 4-5 years but hey if people buy it why change it, sad but true

      I agree, and find the fact MW3 is getting better scores is puzzling.

      I personally think the story in Assassin’s Creed games is much better, the game play has far more variety, and the single player campaign is much stronger.

      Ubisoft has done a pretty admirable job at making a fun MP feature to.

      The issue is, revelations is being criticized for the same things MW3 was, but the review scores are vastly different.

      I find that terribly inconsistent, and it really makes me question many of the scores for MW3.

      I’m fine with being critical of a developer taking the safe route, or criticizing when developers polish up a formula that has sold well over the years and release several refined versions of it as a new game.

      Just make sure you hold those standards to all the games doing that, you can’t really dance around those criticisms, oh that’s true but it doesn’t apply to this game because… doesn’t really work. We aren’t talking about controls, or visuals, or voice acting or anything like that.

      We are talking about a studio perhaps milking a franchise some, which is understandable in this era of gaming. I’m not saying either studio is, I’m sure many think they are.

      Point is, hold every game under the same microscope, if you don’t like how it hasn’t changed much from the previous entry, besides some game play tweaks and a new script, that’s fine. Just let it show in your review scores, regardless of what title you happen to be playing.
