Anyone else excited for Assassin's Creed Revelations?

From what I understand this game is going to be twice the size of Brotherhood. Desmond is also getting a lot more game time and missions.

Ezio's new look is awesome too. I love how they blend his traditional renaissance look with that of the middle east.

Here's hoping for a new Play Arts figure of him.

It's stupid that they're using Ezio again. I like him, but damn. Three games with him, when they're supposed to rotate their characters? It's stupid. And this feels like it won't be a sequel, but a continuation of Brotherhood, which was already just an extension of AC2.

Well, the interview showed that it isn't so much Ezio this time as making use of all 3 characters this time around.

Also, Ezio rocks!

Anyways, AC 2 talked about the renaissance being a critical time and Subject 16 knew it. Well, the 2 games never really go over why it was so important and this seems like they are finally going to wrap it up before they move onto the next era in AC3.

I know some people don't like their games drawn out like this, but I kinda do as long as they can pull off the story and gameplay well.

I think it will also be interestig to see the full life cycle of an Assassin. Since 2 was released we get to see an assassin not only learn how to become one, but also become a leader of them and now become a mentor.

I love the depth of this series!

I love Assassins Creed. But they can use a differnt assassin sometime. I'm just glad they've used someone else in the comic

Yeah, apparently Ezio gets an ancient device that's pretty much the Animus, and uses that to play as Altair the same way Desmond would play as the both of them. Also Desmond is still playable.

I still have to play Brotherhood...I also have to play Assassin's Creed 2, actually.

So it's going to be Desmond playing Ezio playing Altair? :BOOM:

ZERO

I didn't even bother with multi player. I wanted the game for the actual Brotherhood storyline.

I love the new sig Blurrz. It makes me so proud to know that the Brotherhood is growing on this site.

Sorry, my memory is fuzzy at the moment?

Is that the Copernico story or the Davinci dissapearance?

PSN crashed right before I could get the Davinci expansion. I'm going to get it soon though.

Ezio's narration makes the trailer even more awesome. And here I thought Woodkid did a good job of making it epic.

I finished Revelations and I walk away from Ezio's story feeling slightly dissapointed.

It is a fair bit shorter than 2 and Brotherhood were. The combat also leaves a lot to be desired as enemies are quicker to respond and there's a lag in the response time of your attacks.

The den battles were cool. I think they could use some more refinement though.

I would say that the weakest gimmick in the game was also one of the most heavily promoted. Bombcrafting is virtually useless and with only one mission that actually requires you to craft bombs, you'll find yourself never using this gimmick as standard hand-to-hand works best.

The hook blade delivered though. The combat and free running is actually quite good.

The maps are smaller in this game. While that's not neccessarily bad, I feel the game could have benefited from a few more memory sequences. as it seems like ubisoft kinda rushed the ending.

I enjoyed the game, but I found a lot lacking after Brotherhood. My main gripes are the lack of horse riding as well as the crossbow not being as good for stealth combat as it once was.

Here's hoping Assassins Creed 3 is epic.

Merged for your viewing pleasure. ;)

I'm the resident AC nut so I've been following this series pretty closely.

And yes, Revelations was designed to close the story of Altair and Ezio. AC3 opens up a new chapter.
