New to AC games, have a question regarding Ezio storyline (no spoilers)

#1Illusions1980Posted 10/31/2012 11:19:39 AM
So I played through AC starting about 2 weeks ago, and am now about 1/2 way done with ACII. I wanted to know from anyone who's played all of the AC games, I understand that AC: Brotherhood and Revelations are continuing the storyline of Ezio, but as far as the general storyline, does ACIII pick up after ACII or should I play Brotherhood and Revelations before ACIII?

Brotherhood and Revelations do continue the Story of Desmond, too. In fact, you'll be like "WTH is this all about?" when you start ACIII if you haven't played those 2.

By all means ACIII picks up from the end of Revelations.

I recommend playing Brotherhood at least since it's a VERY good game in it's own right, and then just watch a playthrough/read about Revelations.

Revelations is a good game. Just a bit lacking on side content... But at the price you should find it now, it's good to go.

At least Brotherhood.
Revelations' can be summed up in a single video, just search for the ending on YouTube.

AC3 picks up right after Revelations, Brotherhood would be the most important one cause quite a bit happens there but If you really are in a rush you can just google the endings to both of them

Thanks for the info. I will and was planning to play both brotherhood and revelations, I just was interested to dive right into ACIII because I like the time period, but I have no problem playing the other two games first.

I loved revelations I thought brotherhood was the low point of the series but i seem to be alone in that. I'd really recommend playing through them all. I plan on replaying them after I beat 3.

Revelations and brotherhood are both so amazing. You know why many people complain about this game? it's because those 2 placed the bar so high that AC3 falls a little short, IMO.

You can jump right into AC3 if you really want. The only problem with that is, the Brotherhood and Revelations will feel dated if you go back and play them.

I would suggest playing through at least Brotherhood (picks up literally right after AC:2. You are standing on the ground that you end AC:2 on which was really cool).

Revelations was the weakest point of the series, in my opinion- and not much happens. It is also the shortest game- and you can beat it in about 12-15 hours. If you want to play it though, it isn't bad by any means.
