This game was supposed to be a continuation of Brotherhood in that it was the same main character and the same type of game play. The differences were that the city changed, your character was older and supposedly better at fighting, and your enemy's had some new weapons. There were 3 main disappointments. First, the free running was exactly the same, although it was a little better because of the hooks you got to use (even though they were limited in the situations where they helped). Second, the fighting style was the same. Third, the weapons were somewhat different but lacked variety. Where Revelations fell short of Brotherhood was in the country and city switching. This was one of my favorite parts of Brotherhood that didn't make it into Revelations. Ubsoft also took out the art, carpets, and things that you could buy for your castle/chateau that functioned as your home base. They replaced it with the guild defense system, which just wasn't that entertaining and didn't play very well as a tower defense. Don't get me wrong, I love the Assassin's Creed games; but this one could have been better in a few key areas. I'm hoping the new one won't be a complete stupidity fest ("the Civil War", really?) That could be taken in the wrong direction by the team at Ubsoft!
