Great review, my thoughts exactly. AC2 and AC:B both introduced major new elements to the gameplay, whereas AC:R refines all the existing elements.

Since it's the third of a trilogy, aiming to tie up all the threads from the previous games to have a blank slate for AC3, I definitely wouldn't recommend it for newcomers.

I've always told people to start at ACII if they want to get into the franchise anyway and Revelations just gives more reason for me to do that.

Reading through it though it sounds like we can no longer go round killing guards to kill time or if we're bored without having to suffer consequences more severe than in Brotherhood. All you had to do to lower your notoriety was to rip down a few posters, bribe a preacher, or kill an eye witness. If I now have to play Tower Defense by force because of that... I won't be too happy.

Dragoon Most of those options still stand, just no more posters (the easiest route).
Killing guards doesn't seem to give you too much notoriety, and yet buying/renovating shops fills almost a quarter of your meter... so weird.
You do get some time to lower your notoriety before a den is attacked. Just make sure you don't commit more crimes while your notoriety is already dangerously high.

I hate the fact there are no more posters. I saw my notoriety creeping up and I was like "Where the posters at?". And purchasing stores increases notoriety by a huge amount too
This game requires much more concentration and micro-management than the last.

Haha, thanks RabidChinaGirl. A lot of my post-story fun usually comes from copious hours spent running around slaughtering guards in somewhat imaginative ways.
