Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is the first in a trilogy from Ubisoft for the Assassin’s Creed Saga. Taking a new approach offering an artistic stealth side scroller, they hope to bring something new to fans.
The story puts a very skill Assassin against a task that seems impossible to tackle. You are Shao Jun, a youthful female Assassin who has fled to the west of 6th-century china to complete her training under legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore as seen in the animated short Assassin’s Creed Embers. She’s determined to restore the Chinese Brotherhood Assassin’s and in this story you seek that retribution.
The gameplay in this game is very reliant on stealth and figuring out the best approach. If you are detected, you can backtrack or try to fight your way through, but hand to hand combat is very risky. You start out with little health so you will not want to approach your mission this way. Fans of Mark Of The Ninja, will definitely want to check this out as it offers more of the same type of gameplay. I even wonder if the developers were inspired by that game.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China has had some negative press. I think it’s cause of the change and some of the things in this game seemed rush. Still, I like the new approach. It needs some polish, but overall it could be well worth the price of admission for most Assassin’s Creed fans.
Short And Simple..
Take A Leap Of Faith In China!
