5.0 out of 5 stars A Detailed Multiplayer Review, December 1, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: Assassin's Creed: Revelations (Video Game)
I decided to do a multiplayer review since EVERYBODY typically only reviews the single player while only spending 3 or 4 sentences on the multiplayer component. I must say I became incredibly addicted to brotherhoods multiplayer as it offered a totally radically different experience from your typical FPS like COD or Battlefield. The revelations multiplayer only adds to the greatness. New game modes like deathmatch and artifact add an exhilarating new touch to your more typical game modes.

Deathmatch puts you in a very close, tight section of a map with NO compass. You are only given a picture of your target and it is up to you to do the rest.

Artifact is a basic Capture the Flag mode. Its works like this: Once you cross the "halfway" point of the map you will only be able to stun, thus you must constantly be on your toes in your attempt to get the flag/artifact and be weary of defenders hiding in crowds near the the flag or what not.

Customization plays an even bigger role. New characters can be customized endlessly with different types of weapons, belts, cloths, and you can even unlock gold weapons. You can also put emblems on the back of your cape.

The are 50 ranks, but unlike brotherhood where 50 is the level cap, you can now prestige. But get this...You don't lose anything! You keep unlocking more stuff, and here's the kicker...you can do this 99 times. And ubisoft says you still unlock stuff right up to prestige 99. Wow.

If you are looking for a fresh break and want some inject some strategy and "outwitting" into your gameplay, then pick up Revelations. You'll notice that most high standing game review sites like IGN, gamespot, and gameinformer, have knocked it. But there reviews where slanted toward single player and they had nothing but praise for the multiplayer component. Remember that the whole game must be taken into account when giving a review.

Good review. I myself was a Wanted fiend with Brotherhood. I like some of the new stuff and the death match addition is interesting. My only complaint was that there seemed to be more screen tearing than in Brotherhood. I've accepted the fact that AC games and Ubisoft game sin general will have some screen tearing, but I was hoping maybe it would be improved.

Hi, I just got into AC;Brrotherhood's multiplayer and it is amazing! It is so crafty and smart, and people are still online playing it. But with revelation's, I wonder if alot of people are online with that game, since so many other games came out this fall/winter that it makes me wonder if revelations sold enough.

1--I want to know if many people play it online since it doesnt look like it sold alot this year.

2--Also, does it have an online pass code like some other online games, or can I just buy it used and the online still work?

3rd question: Does revelations have any online modes which really utilize REAL teamwork (not just a bunch of guys on a team, but guys who NEED to work together to win) and support clan tags.

4th--Does it have split screen WHILE online so my lady can play too (she loves stealth games like MGS, tenchu, AC, and Deus Ex). but if theres no split screen, i'll still check the game out.

Thanks if you can help

I'm probably too late to help you with a reply, but I can answer number 2 since I just got the game (on sale through Gamestop for $20 new). If you buy the game used and the code has been redeemed, you need to pay $9.99 to unlock the online component of the game. I really wish something like this would be mentioned in the review. I wonder if anybody knows of a good source of information in order to find out which games give you less when you buy them used. I've had trouble finding this information online.
And as for question number 1, plenty of people play it. I have only played this game yesterday 4 times but each time it found a full group of people quickly.
