AC:R is one of the better games in the series so far, having played the three prior in chronological order. It refines many of the rough edges see in AC:B through the improved combat system and stealth detection. However by far the biggest improvement in my opinion is the brotherhood system, which was finally done right.

The gameplay is the best it has ever been, and the 16th century Constantinople setting is both a pleasure to look at and free run through. There are a couple of things out of the game from previous installments, such as horses and flying machines, but they have been replaced with equally interesting elements, although I felt that they sometimes derail the flow of the story too much. The story is excellent, far more engaging it's predecessor, but falls short of the masterfully segmented events of the second game. I think it's still worth the pick up before AC3 but isn't crucial to your enjoyment or understanding of the series.

Overall I would say AC2>AC:R>AC:B>AC1. The game gets an 8.5/10 from me, with AC2 being a 9, AC:B being an 8, and AC1 being a 7.

The game is good. There is some replay value if you like clearing the templars from their dens. The MP is ok, nothing too crazy, similar mechanism when compared to brotherhood. Really wished that the game's final part had more missions/parts to complete. At the end of the game i had to wait for the money so that i could get 100% sync.

I don't understand the story, but I'm really pleased with my purchase. Considering the price I got it for, it's a good bargin.

I never bothered playing AC1. I went straight to 2 and then last year's Brotherhood and have never looked back. This series has become my most favourite game series and Revelations was therefore a lock for me. I knew going in that this would be "more of the same" since Ubisoft has already said this is a stop-gap release while they word on next year's AC3, which will...well, should be...a major leap forward for the series.

That said, Revelations is still one of the greatest games I have played this year. It does play like Brotherhood but the setting is completely new. It's exotic, it's warm, it's sunny and has a level of detail never seen before. There is a million things to do, the storyline is better than that of Brotherhood, and you simply have to buy this just to see the visuals and take-in 1506 Constantinople, a gorgeous blend of Christian-European-Byzantine culture with Islamic Turkish culture. The people you will meet are amazing. The new bomb making system is ridiculously fun and the Assassins Training system is finally what it needed to be.

Do yourself a favour. Buy it. You will be thankful that you did. Don't skip this.
