    Assassin’s Creed: Revelations review

    By 22 November 2011

    The Assassin’s Creed games always look like they might be quite enjoyable, all backstabbing and historical intrigue, like a Dan Brown novel for the hard of thinking. In reality though, despite the lush settings, dramatic music and variety of hooded...

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood review

    By 18 November 2010

    Picking up directly where the superb Assassin's Creed 2 left off, Brotherhood is a weird sort of semi-sequel. With mostly the same cast, the same technology and the same period setting, it is not quite different enough to be the third episode in the series,...
