Yeah, this isn't even a trailer. It's a straight up music video, and I ain't mad about it. To be completely honest, I haven't played an Assassin's Creed game since the first. Not because I don't enjoy them, they look like a good time. I had fun watching a friend slaughter random Italian nobles, just never got around to doing it myself. Can anyone tell me why Ezio is having hallucinations of Altair? Did he slip himself some of his own poison?

Though whenever an Assassin's Creed game releases a new trailer, I'm all over it. They always have incredibly high production value and use perfectly eclectic music to compliment the action. So why would the trailer for Assassin's Creed: Revelations be any different?

Gameplay looks like typical Assassin's Creed. Ezio uses smoke bombs, zip-lines with his new wrist hooks, destroys some ships with a flamethrower, parkours around, and generally just kicks everything's ass. Par for the course for Mr. Auditore. As you would expect the action is fast and smooth, and the graphics are beautiful. The real question for Revelations though, is what the hell is going on with Desmond?
