Finished the main story in Assassin’s Creed Revelations the other day. Other than the horribly inaccurate face models of Ezio and Desmond which made them look like scarred zombies, I thought it was pretty good, as all Assassin’s Creed games are. The endings always give me a chill, when they bring together the past, present, and future. Well — the past, the past, the past, and the present would be more accurate I guess. And this one was really poignant because I guess after four games, the stories of Altair and Ezio are now finally complete.
As a game, I thought Brotherhood was better. Revelations had these weird bombs and parachutes which I found almost entirely useless in actual gameplay. Except at the very end when you were *required* to use a parachute quite a lot. I dunno, that just seemed a little *too* anachronistic to me. And what happened to the horses??
