FANTASY VIDEO GAME TIE IN REVIEW: Assassins Creed Revelations - Oliver Bowden

Release Date: 24/11/11


When a man has won all his battles and defeated his enemies, what is left for him to achieve? Ezio Auditore must leave his life behind in search of answers, in search of the truth. In "Assassin's Creedp[registered]: Revelations", master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of the legendary mentor Altair, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path - one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilise the region.


Oliver’s best AC title to date and one that works extremely well with the game series as it has everything that the fans want. There’s decent combat, great action sequences and of course intrigue, double dealing and the mysterious under currents of the previous civilisation that will undoubtedly lead the reader into deeper Templar mythos in the future outings.

Add to this some great prose, a wonderful sense of finishing the Ezio threads for now and of course a title that really did add another layer to make the game more fun, which all in, is a great thing for a book to do. Cracking.
