From ArsTechnica:

With Assassin's Creed: Revelations being the third Assassin's Creed release in as many years, a fear of trepidation that the series would be back with diminishing returns isn't unfounded. Look at what an annual release schedule did to the once-great Guitar Hero: it takes time for developers to create and implement new gameplay systems and features. I went into Revelations skeptical and expecting to be unimpressed—and being wrong never felt this good.

The first Assassin's Creed came out in 2007 and felt like a proof of concept. Regardless of how beautiful the Crusades-era Holy Land setting was, the game's mission structure and environments were monotonous and bland. It was the video game equivalent of a supermodel serving you plain oatmeal. But it had potential. In the two years between the release of Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed II, developer Ubisoft hammered out the template for sequels to come.
