Romance and Historical

Assassin's Creed Revelations Takes place in Constantinople in the Byzantine Empire. There is no Profanity if you turn off subtitles. There is no Sexual Actions but, there is Romance. This game is kind of historical, but mostly focused on ending a generation of the main character. Beware because of misguidance. There is disturbing finishing moves ( breaking neck with a hook, turning head in 180 with sword through head). There is also little blood

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (18 ):
Kids say (69 ):

Some things about Assassin’s Creed are just too good to change. The series’ immensely satisfying climbing mechanics -- which see Ezio gracefully pulling himself up the sides of landmarks like the Haghia Sophia and the Hippodrome -- are a hallmark of the series, and ought to remain until its end. However, other parts of the experience -- like rooftop guards who quickly call in reinforcements and put a kink in graceful rooftop runs -- are getting old.

There are new elements, and some of them -- like the parts of the game that see Desmond in bodiless form exploring the bowels of the Animus -- are highly engaging. Others, like the new tower defense game, aren’t as compelling. There’s no question that the franchise’s ongoing storyline remains one of the most ambitious, complex, and satisfying in the history of the medium, but its about time the series –- which has produced four games in four years -- underwent a bit of a shake-up.
