Assassin's Creed Revelations is a Adventuring game available on the 360. It can be played in Singleplayer Competitive modes.
Assassin's Creed Revelations is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Assassin's Creed Revelations can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
Assassin's Creed Revelations can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.
Assassin's Creed Revelations 360/PS3 walks the path of its predecessors. A new setting, fresh gameplay and Ezio's concluding story will quickly attract fans of the series. The bigger challenge here is engaging newcomers -- both painting a compelling picture of the game and providing easy access to the complex mechanics.
Assassin's Creed Revelations is the fourth installment in the series and the culmination of Ezio's adventure through time, culture and hiding in hay carts. Even the first game, in what has now become a leading franchise, impressed with fluid climbing exploration and innovative social gameplay mechanics -- using crowds, city architecture and society to achieve the different missions. Each sequel has fleshed out this experience while at the same time expanding its scope. This sequel promises to be no different and expand further on its success.
Assassin's Creed Revelations brings the series full circle as the story returns to the middle east and the truth about those who run the world.
For me, the star of any Assassin's Creed title is the historical environments in which the player is free to run, climb, hide and battle militia. The new setting of Constantinople is a rich new tapestry of markets and rooftops, populated by a cosmopolitan range of inhabitants. It truly feels as though the player is inhabiting a living breathing historical city.
