For the past few hours I've been trying to draft up a review for Assassin's Creed: Revelations (which I just finished last night) and I'm having a hard time writing it. I think I need to get some thoughts out and my biggest thought is: it could have been better. I wanted to like the game a lot more but I can't. I can't help but feeling that the game did not put out it's full potential. I was thinking that the story of Altair, Ezio and Desmond would be wrapped nicely with only so much of the story left for Desmond to make AC III. Was I wrong. All that was wrapped up was Ezio's and Altair's.
There are still so many questions left about Desmond's story. That's not what I was expecting. I clearly set my expectations in the wrong place but now I'm feeling disappointed with a game that had great gameplay but the story, which is a big part of AC, left me empty.
I wish the game was as good as AC II and Brotherhood but it isn't, in my opinion. There are some good things done in the game and some nice improvements gameplay-wise like combat but the story just didn't do it for me in this game.
