Even though I had my doubts, when Brotherhood came out I was awed by the multiplayer. Not only did it have the beautiful and fluid graphics that all Assassins’ Creed games have, but the game was fun and exciting. The character design was incredible, there were a variety of different Assassin’s to choose from and they were all diverse and had signature moves. Even though the multiplayer was very fun and different, it still had some problems. Things such as a poor matchmaking system that took forever to connect and an extremely limited number of game styles prevented the game from staying entertaining for long.
Many of these issues were addressed with the release of Assassin’s Creed Revelations. This game has many more game styles, better character customization, more maps and a better feel. The matchmaking system seems to be improved, but I still feel like it lacks the speed of other games. Despite these problems, the game is still very revolutionary for multiplayer gaming. I have never had this much fun playing a combat style game that is not a first person shooter. I think Ubisoft is heading in a whole new direction with its games and it will be exciting to see what they release in the future.
