In his last adventure, Ezio Auditore removed the Templar presence from Rome while leaping and running across the vast, populated landscape. Now three years have passed, and our noble assassin still has many questions that desperately need answering. His newfound quest leads him into the footsteps of Altair ibn La'Ahad, a legendary mentor who has locked a source of great power within his library. Now Ezio must travel to the bustling city of Constantinople and find the five keys that will unlock the library before the Templars can gain access and use the power to achieve their goals of death and destruction.
The "Assassin's Creed" franchise offers fun, open-world adventure that brings the player into the story through clever gameplay and visuals. "Revelations" takes that a bit further and offers the same thrilling adventure but with a pile of enhancements that will have fans smiling ear to ear.
Media Link: Roger Craig Smith, the voice of Ezio, also provides voiceovers for "The Regular Show" airing Monday through Friday on Cartoon Network.
