Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India Review

The middle chapter of the Chronicles trilogy improves the formula, but doesn’t perfect it.

Say what you will about the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles games so far: They know how to make one heck of a first impression. With India, the ominous mists that frequently shrouded the floating junks and palaces of the previous game--Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China--have lifted, and a dazzling, painterly Shangri-La awaits, awash in henna patterns and deep hues.

Something of a pseudo-sequel to Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, ACC: India picks up 300 years later. The Templars and Assassins are searching for a legendary artifact: the powerful Koh-I-Noor diamond. It's encouraging at first to visit a setting as underutilized as India, but it quickly gives way to disappointment once you realize its unique qualities are merely used for window dressing. When you’re running, jumping, climbing, and killing in ACC: India, its typically more for its own sake than any investment in the story. To expect more is folly.

Chronicles aims to be a hybrid between Assassin's Creed and old-school Prince of Persia. You're on a 2D axis, but with three or four planes you can move in and out of at specific points. Running, jumping, and swordplay have a fluidity and heft that must be accounted for before every major move. The kinetics are very much Assassin's Creed; vaulting over gaps and obstacles, using the environment to stay invisible, and, hopefully, getting to stick your sword or wristshank in the spinal cord of the hapless fools in your way.The typical AC mechanic of simply being able to hold one button and letting the acrobatics happen automatically is where the Chronicles series diverge from the main games. Jumping, sliding, and climbing are manual activities here, and have to be carefully plotted, more akin to Mirror's Edge than anything the Frye twins did in the last year.

You play as a clever, cunning rogue named Arbaaz, who has a dry wit and a notable disregard for authority. Your first mission is to infiltrate a heavily guarded palace to steal quality time with your lover, the princess. The first half hour of the game is magical, suggesting the kind of adventure we haven’t seen from Ubisoft since the last Prince of Persia. The magic of that first half hour only serves to highlight missed opportunities in the remainder of the game, even in the face of its many advancements over its underachieving predecessor.

The gameplay in India is much improved this time compared to Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China. For starters, there are more assassination missions to be done, and you're scored for each mission depending on your level of stealth. Most of your time is still spent crawling along the sides of buildings, obsessively watching for vision cone patterns, and hiding in alcoves, but this game no longer feels so vehement about players taking the stealthy, no-kill route. In fact, there are quite a few sections that require you to clear out a dozen enemies, often with a swift time constraint. Figuring out just the right dance to clear the room is a delight; with enemies diabolically placed and more lethal than ever, every kill feels like its own victory.

Arbaaz's attacks can sometimes feel a little sluggish, with the response time for him to even unsheath his sword not exactly quick when there's enemies all around. If you can accomplish missions without having to resort to hand-to-hand combat, even better, but it's not easy when the appropriate icon occasionally fails to appear when you're close enough to an enemy for a stealth takedown. Trial-and-error is definitely encouraged here, and thankfully, the game reloads in a flash, allowing for very little break in the action should you need to restart. The tools of the trade remain mostly the same--smoke bombs, explosive noisemakers, a simple grappling hook, and a whistle are joined by a chakram which can be thrown to cut ropes or stun enemies. New Animus Helix powers allow for instant, on-the-fly invisibility or one-hit kills. There's even a wonderful little puzzle involving a primitive sniper rifle that’s a bit tricky but ultimately satisfying. Still, ACC: India represents a missed opportunity to hearken back to Assassin’s Creed’s roots, which gave you a series of infiltration missions where you could ignore or avoid most other NPCs, and instead just focus on that big fat kill at the end. The challenge rooms that open up as you progress in the campaign scratch that itch to an extent, but not enough to satisfy it for good.

On the flipside, there are more sequences where straight parkour is required to get out of a hectic situation, which was arguably one of the more fun, unique parts of ACC: China. This time, you’re more likely to get into these situations because you’re trailing villains through temples or a full-on chaotic war has broken out and you need to flee to safety. The problem here is that, for all the speed these sequences require, and as gratifying sprinting across obstacles while cutting down enemies can be,courses tend to grind to a halt for uninspired timed-jump puzzles, which ruin the breakneck pace of the rest of the courses.

No Caption Provided

The real frustration of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India is seeing a game that fails to fix the problems of its predecessor, or take advantage of its setting's great thematic potential. We have a game that takes place in a particularly bloody era of Indian (and, in one segment, Afghan) history, where the Templar villains are two high-ranking British officials, and the protagonist has every given reason to defy the Assassin Brotherhood. Yet all of the most interesting efforts to fight the good fight are reduced to finding collectibles.

For the mainline Assassin's Creed games, the history and characters are the bones holding the gameplay upright. For the Chronicles series, the curiosities presented by the setting act as a thin veneer that only momentarily distracts from the flaws beneath. Like Arbaaz himself, these great moments have a bad habit of vanishing into thin air when you least want them to, bit there is still a lot of fun to be had in this Indian adventure.

The Good
Beautiful, exotic art style and aesthetics
Nice ramp up in difficulty
More parkour and assassinations than puzzle solving
The Bad
Ill-placed platforming ruins the flow on occasion
Story wastes an amazing setup
Context sensitive moments are unreliable

About the Author

Justin Clark was able to slip in and out of AC Chronicles: India in about five and a half hours, compared to three and a half or so for China. Far too much of that time was spent remembering the Monty Python "How To Not Be Seen" skit at the worst possible moment, snickering, and Arbaaz catching a face full of lead as a result.

Seems like when there is an elephant in a video game, it's a rampaging elephant that brings down structures willy-nilly. :\

Also, you might want to notice what happens after this elephant stops chasing the player character; stuff still falls down around him anyway. Sure, this scenario takes place amidst mortar fire, but I don't see any landing near him.

Some of the assassination methods just seem deficient.

For example, the assassin can attack an enemy that is above while hanging from a ledge, but there does not appear to be any option to yank said enemy down so that he falls to his death, at least not by default. Rather, by default, the assassin stabs said enemy somewhere on the body of the latter and the enemy crumples. You can see a video example here, in an early stage of the game.

Even if there is an option to yank an enemy down later, I do wonder why it wasn't implemented by default. Reserving this for the sake of inclusion into a progression system for the player character's capabilities would feel very contrived to me.

Also, the voice-acting for the protagonist is not as enthusiastic as those for other characters. In fact, he just sounds nonchalant most of the time.

"The middle chapter of the chronicles trilogy improves the formula, but doesn't perfect it". It's just a 10$ game, what do you expect? Do you think this game would be just 10$ if it was?

@rebfaction: Even for US$10, it seems run-of-the-mill, even for an Assassin's Creed game.

Also, for anyone else reading this, do look at rebfaction's ratings for games. You might find some unbelievable numbers there, including tenners for Destiny and Star Wars: Battlefront.

rebfaction's not exactly the best person to take seriously when he/she is making a remark of price versus quality, I say.

@Gelugon_baat: Why do you point out my game ratings?, do you even care?. No one cares. Are you trying to prove something?. I well play any game that is fan and entertaining, and I will not expect too much out of a 10$ game. You may not like Destiny and Star Wars: Battlefront, but I do worth a 10/10 in my opinion. I never ever take any game review seriously, how can I? this 10$ game doesn't perfect in what the developers are trying to accomplish makes me lough. If you disagree with my game ratings I don't give a shit. My average game rating is 8/10.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Assassin Creed is getting old fast. 1 game a year? REALLY? Which is nothing but copy & paste of last year but with different clothes? OMG! Talk about making money without deserving on sucessful franchise. Money hungry CEOs. They wanna do like Fifa and release the same game every year with only different comestics. Come on. Haven't you heard of DLC? Add-ons? Updates? Patches?

@nunoanjos: no one is forcing you to buy the games. It has nothing to do with money hungry CEOs, it's called supply and demand. If no one wanted the games then no one would buy them and they would stop releasing them every year.

@Metallica_Dan: No it's not supply and demand, but money hungry CEOs without good moral values. There are other very sucessful franchises out there that don't launch a copy and paste sequel every year just to milk more money out of their sucker fans. TAKE MASS EFFECT for example. Only 3 games so far. The 4th is coming this year. They don't launch 1 copy and paste game every year like idiotic UBISOFT.

No one is forcing me to buy so I don't buy Assassin's Creed and I don't play it. But I can have my opinion and express it on here, that's what I did. I've only played 1 AC game. I didn't even finish it because it got boring fast. NEVER AGAIN. Copy & paste the game 9 times even makes me hate it more, how moronic to launch copy & paste games that don't deserve to exist, no real reason to exist except make money out of idiots who buy the 394853945 dumb sequels without a soul, with only minor differences and different clothes. How shallow of them.

@nunoanjos: you've only played one game so you've confirmed what I was suspecting: you have no clue what you're talking about. It's really simple: they wouldn't release a new Assassin's Creed game every year if there wasn't a demand for it, it's called being in business.

You don't like Assassin's Creed, that's fine... but many, many people do and this is reflected in the sales of the game and guess what? They've all been successful. You claim each game is a copy/paste of the previous one but again you've only played one, so you have no clue what you're talking about. Yes, of course they'll have similarities, but each game improves on the last one.

But I get it, it's cool to hate on Ubisoft because they're a successful company (like EA) and you want to seem like a bad ass. Unfortunately you're just coming off as an uninformed basher.

@Metallica_Dan: You have no clue what you're talking about. You don't know how many assassin creeds I've played. I don't need to play even 1 or a required number to have an opinion. Reviews help someone form an opinion. THAT IS WHAT REVIEWS ARE FOR. Demos help someone form an opinion. THAT IS WHAT DEMOS ARE FOR. Anyway it's a free country and I can have my own opinion.

Supply and demand my $$$. You talk like this is selling grapes or clothes or anything. You talk nonsense. Still they are money hungry CEOS without good moral values who take advantage of fools like you, play you people like fools. Their tactics are still ugly, I despise them and I have the right to feel that way and express such opinions.

@nunoanjos: um maybe you should remember what you wrote, I quote YOUR post "I've only played 1 AC game. I didn't even finish it because it got boring fast." so yes, I do know how many AC games you've played, lol. Try to keep up...

A demo or review will never replace the real thing.

And you're right, you can say whatever you want, but your opinion is kind of moot if you've barely played any of the games. You're coming off as someone who's whining about "money hungry CEOs" when you have no clue how business work and don't even buy the Assassin's Creed games anyways. Just bitching in order to bitch about stuff you don't understand...

@Metallica_Dan: no you don't know. I could have played demos, you don't know. Also, one does NOT have to play a game or watch a movie before forming an opinion and knowing if the game/movie is good or bad.

In fact, I hate some movies and games I've never played and never will. I just know they are terrible in several ways. Get used to ppl more intelligent than you and who have a better sixth sense or intuition.

"but your opinion is kind of moot if you've barely played any of the games"

This statement is false. You don't know how much I've played. Maybe a lot maybe not. YOU DON'T KNOW. So quit talking about things you have no clue about.

Maybe I know how businesses work better than you. I can have an opinion that UBISOFT are money hungry CEOs while other companies not so much, better people with better moral values who release games because they DESERVE, make sense and the games are really good and original, not just to milk a franchise and make a lot of money on expense of blind fools that will get turned on just by seeing a new Assassin Creed title and buy it regardless of how good or bad or copy-paste it is. I despise people who take advantage of innocent people, like such money hungry CEOs, the ILUMINATTI, the masters of selling games with no soul on a powertrip.

What's next? Assassin's Creed 22 - Hong Kong. Assassin's Creed 23 - China. Assassin's Creed 23 takes place in China, the enemies have eyes like the Hong Kong enemies, the only difference is their clothes are red while in AC Hong Kong their clothes were blue. But hey! Let's make more money. FANS WILL BUY ANYTHING MUAHAHAHAHA. How ridiculous. Assassin's Creed 24 - Finland. Assassin's Creed 25 - Norway (the only difference to Finland is 1% more snow LOL ridiculous). In 2020........ Assassin's Creed 89 - North Pole. FINALLY AFTER YEARS AND YEARS OF COMPLETE COPY & PASTES, we have a NEW REAL INNOVATION. When you press the attack button, the animation now is different. BECAUSE IT TAKES 2 SECONDS LONGER. LOL. UBISOFT: MONEY HUNGRY CEO's trolling and ripping off fans SINCE FOREVER.

@nunoanjos: so you're admitting that you've made an uninformed opinion since you haven't played the games by your own admission. The fact that you hate other stuff like movies and TV shows without any basis or actually, you know, watching them or looking into them just proves my point that you're trying to be all edgy and hating on Ubisoft without any legs to stand on. Keep going though, you're just proving my point even more... The back-peddling is strong in your post.

The fact that you're claiming that NOT playing something makes you more intelligent says it all right there. Sure, you're so much smarter than me because you base your opinion what others say and on reviews instead of a first-hand account. Wow. Get used to people thinking you're a moron. :)

You're not smarter than the average gamer (in fact, by your own admission, you're quite dumb since you don't believe in actually playing stuff before making a general opinion). People buy the Assassin's Creed games because they enjoy them, it has nothing to do with blindly purchasing something. Yes, the ILLUMINATI are clearly behind Ubisoft and trying to get people to buy their games!!! You're absolutely right, I'm definitely the dumb one here...

Looks like I made eye contact with the crazy person on the bus here. Make sure you adjust that tinfoil hat, you wouldn't want the ILLUMINATI to read your thoughts, you've clearly figured it all out! It's all a ploy!

Here's the very basics of business (because I do want you to actually learn something): a video game company will make a game, if the game is successful, they'll build on that and release a new game. If the new game is well received and SELLS well, they will make sequels until people don't buy them anymore... AC games are still popular, therefore people enjoy them because they keep buying them. Whether your very limited perception of the games being copy/pasted is true or not (and really you have zero clue since by your own admission you've barely played a game, and the last one you've played is AC2, again by your own admission), it really doesn't matter since you have no clue what you're talking about. The fact is that every AC game has added something of value to the franchise, but don't take my word for it, just look at how successful they've been.

But you know, keep yelling about the ILLUMINATI and stuff, you're making such great points...

@Metallica_Dan: No, I'm not admitting that I've made an uninformed opinion, you don't understand english. Me or anyone can have an INFORMED opinion based on DEMOS. Or based on reviews we read online. Without ever playing a game.

I hate movies without looking into them? Lol I never said that. You are so wrong and deluded. I said I hate some movies without ever watching them but I DID LOOK THEM UP, and read a few reviews.

"instead of a first-hand account. Wow. Get used to people thinking you're a moron. :)"

Playing a demo IS first-hand account, in case you didn't realize. You're the moron who doesn't understand anything I type and doesn't know what he is talking about.

You don't know what you are talking about.

@nunoanjos: I understand English very well thank you, and can definitely write it better than you, so I don't think you want to get into that argument.

Keep back-peddling though, because at first it's "I've only played 1 AC game. I didn't even finish it because it got boring fast." (THESE ARE YOUR QUOTES BY THE WAY) and now it's that you've done extensive research and played demos, read reviews, etc... Yeah okay, which demos did you play specifically? Why are you so fascinated with the AC franchise when by your own admission they're just a copy/paste of the last game? You seem to have an unhealthy amount of focus on a game that you find boring... or you're just a troll that's trying to look cool online by hating on Ubisoft. Or it's the ILLUMINATI.

@Metallica_Dan: No you don't understand english, because you misinterpreted so many things I said, you didn't get them, you said the opposite of what I said, you don't have enough intelligence to know how to read, and obviously I write much better than you.

As I said many times, and you still don't get it, me or anyone can have an opinion about a game without even playing it ever. That is the bottom line. You don't like my opinion, fine, I don't like yours. Deal with it. It's called a democracy, free speech. You get mad because my opinion is better than yours, you run out of arguments so you resort to insult me in a childish way and I will insult you back. (the 1st insult was yours, proving you are the biggest child in a bad way).

@nunoanjos: I didn't misinterpret anything at all... Please explain to me what exactly what did I not understand? You said you barely played an AC game (now I'm asking you which demos you've played and of course you cannot answer this. Yes, you're allowed to have your own opinion, but it's clearly unfounded based on what you've said since you're not even buying any AC games since the one that you played (again, this is based on what you said).

Yes, people can have an opinion about something they've never played and never watched, that's your right (nothing to do with democracy by the way, it's free speech, but who knows what you're saying...). You're the one going on about ILLUMINATI and money hungry CEOs when it has nothing to do with that at all. I've given you more than enough points to prove you wrong but yet you keep ignoring those and focusing on that.

Here are your quotes:

"No one is forcing me to buy so I don't buy Assassin's Creed and I don't play it."

"I've only played 1 AC game. I didn't even finish it because it got boring fast."

I didn't make these up, this is what YOU wrote... Scroll up and see for yourself. So please, just admit you don't know what you're talking about. The Assassin's Creed franchise is both a fun AND successful game franchise, there's a clear demand for more games since all of the games sell very well. This isn't opinion, this is FACT, you can look it up yourself. If the games were bad and no one enjoyed them, then they wouldn't sell. This is basic business. Your initial post was ENOUGH IS ENOUGH but by your own admission, you don't buy the games!!! So what do you care? People OBVIOUSLY enjoy them, so stop being a hater and accept that the AC franchise isn't going anywhere and it's clearly a success. They'll keep making games until people stop buying them which is supply and demand.

You did, so many things, just read the past comments.

"Please explain to me what exactly what did I not understand?"

Read the past comments, I'm not going to repeat myself over and over again because you can't understand good english.

"Yes, you're allowed to have your own opinion, but it's clearly unfounded based on what you've said since you're not even buying any AC games"

My opinion is founded on many things, yours is unfounded. My opinion is better than yours.

"(nothing to do with democracy by the way, it's free speech, but who knows what you're saying...)"

Really? Go read about it. Educate yourself. Everyone knows freedom of speech is linked to democracy. Only you don't know that. OMG you don't even understand anything about politics? Your ever growing ignorance keeps surprising me.

"This is basic business." "supply and demand."

You keep repeating that. You don't know what you are talking about, Assassin's Creed blind fanboy.

"They'll keep making games until people stop buying them which is supply and demand."

"They"? Who's they? Not all companies are the same, you know? UBISOFT is not equal to all other companies, thank god. It is within my rights to like some companies and, on the other hand despise a company like UBISOFT and their money hungry CEOs milking the Assassin's Creed franchise cow till its tits are dry, abusing the cow, talk about animal rights, abusing the fans.

@nunoanjos: Way to avoid the question, once again. Okay, you have an unfounded opinion about Assassin's Creed, good for you. Let's calm down with all of this talk about abuse - these are video games, after all.

I shouldn't really complain or argue with you since you did said straight from the start in your comment that you've only played one AC game, so you were upfront about that. This fact is enough for anyone looking for an honest opinion of the franchise to ignore your comment since it clearly lacks any kind of real evidence. Good for you, you read reviews (and comments too, I'm sure), you've watched YouTube videos and you've formed an opinion on it... but you don't experience it for yourself. All I'm saying is that you're jumping on the AC hate blindly, like everybody else. But you're better than that. Be your own person.

@Metallica_Dan: see how you don't understand anything I said? You have a unfounded opinion about AC. I have a founded opinion and mine is better than yours.

I didn't know only people who played the minimum of 9 AC games have the right to have an opinion according to you. HOW SMART OF YOU! NOTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!! Go buy yourself a brain.

In reality, outside your fantasy crazy fanboy lala land, there is no minimum. Anyone is entitled to have a valid opinion even if they didn't play any AC game. Only you don't respect other peoples opinions so you deserve no respect as well.

Just by reading your blind fanboy obssessed with AC (maybe you even work for money hungry CEOs UBISOFT), anyone looking for a honest opinion should ignore everything you spew out, since it lacks any real and sane evidence, it's obviously insane. By the way, I didn't know we were in court and needed evidence. Maybe in your crazy lala land we are in court. In my real life, because I GREW UP, unlike you, no we are not in court and evidence is not needed.

"you've watched YouTube videos and you've formed an opinion on it... but you don't experience it for yourself"

Read your incorrect false statement. This is you ALL ALONG. A LIE. 100% LIE, INCORRECT. FALSE. Correction: I DID EXPERIENCE IT FOR MYSELF. I DID PLAY ASSASSIN'S CREED. So you just prove yourself wrong by saying I didn't experience it by myself, with your lie, when in reality I experienced it by myself. SO I WIN, YOU LOSE. I rest my case.

@nunoanjos: I never said you had to play a minimum of 9 Assassin's Creed games to have a founded opinion, but you sure has hell have to have more than (again, I quote you) "I've only played 1 AC game. I didn't even finish it because it got boring fast."

We're going in circles here... You realize that you're wrong and were trying to look cool on these boards but it backfired spectacularly in your face, and now you're grasping at straws. You came on here yelling about money hungry CEOs and the Illuminati while admitting that you've only played part of one game and thought it was boring and stupid. I'm not making this up, kid, I'm going exactly by what you're said. Scroll up. Read what you've been writing. You're clearly someone who read a few comments, saw a few screenshots of Assassin's Creed and decided "OMFG THEY'RE ALL THE SAME OMG" like a moron. But it's okay, you are entitled to your opinion, you just needed to call you out on your bullshit, which I've done, and now you're lashing out any which way because you are now trying to save face. It's too late, anyone reading this thread will see how your opinion lacks any kind of real value in a fair honest assessment of the franchise and will move along.

Please respond to this again though calling me stupid and a moron, please do it because I'm honestly having a blast seeing what you'll respond with and how you'll try to dig yourself from the moronic hole you've dug yourself in.

@Metallica_Dan: Wow what a moron you are, the majority of your last comment is insults towards me, since you saw I'm right and you are wrong, you resort to childish insults. Grow up, get a life.

Anyone reading this will ignore your stupid point of view, they will see you're just a blind obssessed fanboy who defends the money hungry CEOs for no reason, or do you work for money hungry CEOs at UBISOFT?

If 9 games that are all the same, carbon copies, are not too much for you then I wonder what is wrong with your brain, or maybe you don't have one at all.

Anyone will ignore everything you say when they realize you don't know what you are talking about, you can't understand english, and you lie all the time. Just look at one of your lies, I exposed before:

"you've watched YouTube videos and you've formed an opinion on it... but you don't experience it for yourself"

@nunoanjos: but the 9 games aren't all the same, is what I'm trying to tell you. And I know, because I've played them all. You haven't.

I'll clarify the quote you keep pasting of mine, I have no issue with this, but you keep taking out bits and pieces. My original post was:

"I shouldn't really complain or argue with you since you did said straight from the start in your comment that you've only played one AC game, so you were upfront about that. This fact is enough for anyone looking for an honest opinion of the franchise to ignore your comment since it clearly lacks any kind of real evidence. Good for you, you read reviews (and comments too, I'm sure), you've watched YouTube videos and you've formed an opinion on it."

I stand by that - you've only played one AC game and then read reviews, watched YouTube videos, etc. by your own admission. I'm not making any assumptions or making anything up (unlike you towards me, by the way). You've played ONE Assassin's Creed game, so please stop trying to say that they're all a carbon copy of each other since you have no clue, again by your own admission... Why is this so hard for you to comprehend? Why do you think that your opinion holds any kind of weight? You didn't even finish the game you tried.

So, we've established, by your own posts, that you simply haven't played the Assassin's Creed games. This is why no matter how many caps you put in your responses to me, no matter how much you say that you've won... You really haven't, since you just don't know what you're talking about, based on what you've shared on here. This is why I'm telling you that you're coming off as ignorant, and just a hater with no real weight behind your opinion (which you're fully entitled to). You'll never get me to feel like your opinion holds any kind of water since you just don't have the experience necessary to make an informed decision about the Assassin's Creed franchise. You're just regurgitating the BS that a lot of people on this site and others have said. I'm trying to open your eyes and tell you to go out and experience things before spouting bullshit on a comment section and looking dumb.

Thank God they are giving the AAA AC games a break in 2016. I have never fallen so out of love with a game series in my life, and I never would've expected to say this after AC2 being such a revelation in the industry by showcasing what the PS3/360 generation was truly capable of in terms of scope and compelling story telling.

Rob Snyder is an Assassins Creed character. He thought being an assassin would be easy. But climbing up buildings and falling off them, wasnt easy at all. So he went to India and became....

A charmed snake.

Rob Snyder IN

A Charmed Snake.

Rated PG13.

It has been so sad watching the franchise fall so low. One has to wonder why they abandoned the formula that made AC1. Ac2 and all of its sequels so playable and successful. Then they cared about story and character and if what you were doing in the game was fun or not. Now it seems they have lost all employees with any imagination and creativity in game making. Why they wasted so much time and money on graphics that may be nice but certainly don't improve the game play is beyond me. And are game testers today just toadies who don't give any honest opinions of the games they test? Or maybe Ubisoft doesn't want to hear honest opinions and only use testers to find bugs now. Well, some of the bugs. . . But Ubisoft is not alone in that.

No offence to anyone... but "My opinion" on AC games is not very nice...

I think this is the most rehashed copy/paste franchise I've ever seen. I have Zero intentions of playing another AC creed game ever. Not saying the game is bad at all. I'm sure many would agree this franchise is just becoming rediculas.

I know the whole Idea is great, and the first few games were good. But how many times can they actually make this game?

Its driving me nuts lol

Oh look, another setting they should use for the core game. Oh well, Ubisoft is just producing games for feminists now anyways.

@danyjri loved those series and they were much better games than this little AC game:

AC was to be such amazing game and with many potential and now is this... Massive releases every year! This destroyed the franchise. Games like AC shouldn't never ever release every year. This game was amazing back in the days and unique, now is just average games with recycle content every year. I lost my interest in this franchise after AC2, since that one i never bought other AC again. Seems like i will never buy other again. Ubisoft is the worst game company by far. They already destroy other franchises because of the same thing and they never learn. They are to dumb to understand their games are not the type of games to release every year!

@WillyWynn: how can you comment on the state of the franchise when you stopped at Assassin's Creed 2? Oh wait, because you're just repeating what you've read and bashing Ubisoft is "cool". Guess what? Every Assassin's Creed game has been successful, even without your purchase.

@WillyWynn: completely agree...

Gotta hand it to them on Rainbow Six Seige though... that game is innovation... not a single FPS plays like it, or even comes close.

I'm so sick and tired of 18th-19th century European settings that its absolutely appalling that a setting as amazing and fresh as colonial India has been wasted in what should have been an iPad game.

Theres just so much of potential in the setting..can you imagine how amazing colonial India would look with a AAA budget? Sad that the potential has thrown down the drain...

And then again a new year...a new generic 19th American/European based AC game..
