I have read most reviews here and finished the game just yesterday, as i wanted to do it properly and everything should be synchronised with the story.
AC:Revelations had many minor bugs and issues like enemies spawning beneath the floor or the thing with desmond's skin (i solved it by the way! jest replay another one of desmond's sequences and done!). Maybe the battling system was a bit on the easy side and not everything was revealed.
And here comes my BUT!
We have a lovely, big and living Constantinople, overwhelming graphics, abreathtaking story and a turning end. I will not compare it to AC or ACII, as they were games of a different class and to my mind category, but this game has beaten brotherhood in every point i could think of.
Another aspect they promised was the thing with the revelations. We may discuss here, but i would say we learned a lot about ezio's last years as an assassin and how he found his peace in the end (not to mentionthat we found out how the first civilization disappeared).
You may say we suggested this before, but now we got proof. And to be honest: we had so many suggestions that one of the theories HAD to be true!(We should not forget that ubisoft needs more open questions for further series and that's okay, as that is their job to entertain us with new and exciting adventures.)
I, for my part, will stop playing the assassin's creed series with the same emotions as before, as ezio and altair were my time. As their era has ended, mine will too and i should follow ezios last words, before i will recognize that they also apply for me: I had liberty, but i did not see it. i had time, but i did not know it. And I had love, but did not feel it.

Your gonna stop playing AC because the Ezio and Altair era has ended? Why didn't you just stop after Altair then haha. That last bit made your review stupid

Ezio is by far my favorite http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif Protagonist in any game series I've ever played (shocking that he could surpass Leon from RE4 for me lol) -

Even still, I have no intentions of leaving the AC series just becuz his character is retired.

I see it this way, if I miss Ezio, I'll pop in ACII, ACB & ACR to reminisce and enjoy him all over again. AC is a game title that has Premium replay value.

If you love the story as much as you say, why quit the story? Both Altair and Ezio were all about preserving the order & creed and carrying on the fight for the future - [SPOILER ALERT] <span class="ev_code_WHITE">even to talking right to Desmond at the end to carry this on</span>
[END SPOILER]

I don't understand your position on ending it even tho it's your choice & you're free to make it.

I'm in love with the whole Assassin gig, I couldn't just drop AC becuz of my love of Ezio as the star.

I didn't want a real review i'm just sick of those haters writing how bad the game's meant to be, so i thought somebody with a little less influenced view should write one.

I started ac when i was 14 i think, and got back 2 it when ac2 came out. i wanted to know what happened to altair in the end and ezio was a character that really interested me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
But as it looks like it's going to be a new asian assassin and i'm honestly not that interested in it, as ezio had a very emotional and kind of catching. But i can't think of any really fascinating story with intrigues for the asian world, sorry http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Most feel that what storyline was there was good enough, theres really no complaints about that...

What most feel/complain about is just different thoughts on whether it was substantial enough to meet they personal demands and expectations. At the end of the day a person understanding of the actual story of the entire series will effect what they was hoping to see revealed in a revelations.

This doesnt make them haters of assassins creed...

As for gameplay reading between the lines of your own writings it seems that you enjoyed the first two versions, and not so keen on the last two. Not to mention your emotional link to the characters whos lifes seem to been concluded for the most part.

And then your own admission that you intend to quit playing any future titles based upon your emotions would be regarded i should think as silly because the greatest part of this game is the story and your basically saying you dont care how it ends.

Im just saying, it does seem pretty crazy for a player who played assassin creed from the beginning not want to see the ending simply because he/she can relate to a character in the game rather than want to understand what that characters role was in the bigger picture...?

Im not in anyway trying to pull you down for what you have choosen to say and ive tried to word it as nice as i can to you http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I separated between Desmonds and his ancestors stories.
Desmond was never of real interest for me, as he really is rarely mentioned in the games http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Thats my main reason for quitting.
I didn't think that ACR has a worse gameplay, but at the time when the games came out, i mean AC and ACII, it was revolutionary, or am i mistaking? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif The open world climbing, own descissions in how to finish a quest (not like games where bosses have one main weak point).... with ACII we had so many new weapons and worlds we could visit, so many people we met, the dramatic story... so i think to be fair you HAVE to separate them from others, otherwise most games would look like real crap http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No i pretty much agree with you there, i too think the first two games were without a doubt the best and altair was the best character, but i prefer desmond to ezio which is strange http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

And sorry for sounding so crazy, i tried to stay dead simple, but since the AC series were so huge and very complex, that i found out i couldn't stay simple in my explanations, but as half the text was already written, its sounds so nuts http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif i can read your trying to stay nice!http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, then imagine desmonds story would end, but but ezios would go on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif i think it wouldn't be the same for you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I understand your point and i probably would feel the same way about it from that viewpoint, but i would still want to know how things ended...

I think you should perhaps reconsider and you never know, when they killed altair in the first version i wasnt expecting to see him make another appearance beyond a FMV but i got to play him again...

and im certainly pleased i got to discover how he died no matter how brief and vain that description was and it will be nice to see how desmond after living altairs & ezios memorys lives his life now...

Yesterday he was a bartender, now hes a trained killer...

I think if you truly stopped playing this game now and quit all ties - it would display as much loyality/character as stupid behaviour...

i just know i wouldnt choose to do that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Exactly! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I just read how many people just took the game appart and said it was bull**** because they didn't get everything they expected, but to be honest, the game revealed many things we didn't expect and things we urgently wanted to know, like:
What happened with altair?
What happened to the brotherhood in the years where altair locked himself up with the apple?
Why did the first civilisation die?
Does desmond find his way out of the animus?
What does Ezio find out about his role in history?
What will he do if he finds out about altairs secrets?

Those were only a few of many answered questions.
You shurely made me thought and i think i'll change the last bit to something not that definite! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
But is there something else you will disagree with?

I have no clue why people were saying this story left you hanging or wasn't enough ??
I just finished it yesterday afternoon and it blew me away!!
I don't understand how they can even say that?
SPOILER ALERT
<span class="ev_code_WHITE">He realized that he was only a piece or a part of this fight, and the torch was to be carried by someone else - the Desmond name he heard. He knew it was time for him to carry on with his personal life, his job was now done.
& Altair preserved what he had for someone else (Ezio) too.</span>
END SPOILER
It simply sets up AC3.

Honestly, no game can please everyone but I was surprised by some of the comments after seeing how good this game was. oh well

Not at all, ProdiGurl, I have read your comment and its context was never condemning, insulting nor silly; It was very respectful..
I was referring to BatemanKID and pacmanate..

i actually did hate this edition of the game, the problem was my lack of understanding of the storyline itself...

Its more complex than how i viewed it so revelations didnt include anything that was relative to myself and members of this forum blew the storyline wide open, i now face a different type of problem im no longer interested in gameplay http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

given the fact i no longer hate den defense is something i find funny simply because my first post here was locked by a moderator and only made out of sheer hatred for den defense

forum members here actually changed how i view revelations, and the story i now find myself intrigued to a degree i want more now !!!

Revelations had a very complex storyline, that I can agree on, It had a much more mature approach towards politics than either AC II or Brotherhood, combined with the sense that the main Antagonist is not just a Power hunger cry-baby..
But I believe that what made the people hate the Storyline is its complexity; I advice anyone to replay it and try to stay on track this time..

That's fair, from an enjoyment standpoint.

However, I would also say that we have far less reason to believe that Ezio's story would continue, as Desmond's story is providing the framed narrative and explains why we're even exploring Altair's and Ezio's tales. In that sense, he's far more critical to the narrative than either character.
