    This is a solid platformer that highlights a new chapter in the Assassin’s Creed universe, taking us to a unique setting and providing a well needed challenge that will test the very limits of our patience.

    Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India is a decent effort, perhaps the closest thing to Prince of Persia we can have today, but it certainly would have better luck if it maintained a high level of quality throughout its (short) duration.

    It’s almost as if we’re watching Prince of Persia evolution again. Just a bit more, and we’ll see a fully 3D Assassin’s Creed, where our hero will finally be able to climb any roof he wants. Oh, wait… [Issue#206, p.68]

    The second part of the Chronicles spin off saga retains the mediocrity of the previous chapter, albeit without the visual flairs that we saw in our trip to China. The chapter of India is unspectacular in both its combat and its visuals, and in the end it could be described especially succinctly as bland.
  6. AC Chronicles: India's landscape is beautiful. Stealth dynamics are very successful but the game's every episode are almost the same and it has terrible combat dynamics.

    This Indian Chronicle holds few surprises for those who played China, meaning frustration and contentment in roughly equal measure. Plus some half-decent artistic flair.

    I vividly remember the first time I played Assassin's Creed and I loved the mechanics of stealth and platforming.
    About AC:Chronicles India I can say that its a nice fork of Assassin's Creed series. It focuses purely on stealth and platforming. The reason I gave it 10 is I just loved the fluidity. Yes, there are some really great games in market who cater to same gener but why I loved it was quite simply : Polish. A refined experience in a beautiful setting. Recommended.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is a smaller Assassin' s Creed platformer, second entry in Assassin' s Creed chronicles trilogy. It's set in 19th century India, you play as Arbaaz Mir. The game does not bring anything new and revolutionary to the genre but it's a good platformer. The reason i rated it 8 is because the controls at certain situations. The game has a nice mechanics and maps (levels) take time to finish especially if you want the non lethal way. If you are fan of Assassin's Creed serial i recommend you to play this game. Looking at current game prices this game has a good price and it's really worth it. Expand

    here we see a more beautiful and eye-catching scenery by the designers with great artistic graphical work;better than the Chinese version ofhere we see a more beautiful and eye-catching scenery by the designers with great artistic graphical work;better than the Chinese version of course
    Good gameplay,a tougher one,more exciting but lacks creativity when reaching the ending parts.
    Music and sounds aren't bad that much.it reminds me of good old days with Prince of Persia series;of course the theme and atmosphere both are inspired by the "POP" series;we can't mean it "Lacking of creativity";songs are synced to the atmosphere of the game.
    but the story and character progression is worth being called terrible.meaningless mentor(Hamid),a lonely assassin(Arbaaz) who's the savior of an artifact throughout the game(but looks a little mentally tired from the start till the princess gets into trouble!),imaginary assassins who are just appeared in the dialogues not in action,and a princess(like most of the "POP" series) who got nothing to do with the assassin but making trouble for him.

    Assassins Creed Chronicles India
    More Fun than China, but still not fun
    Chronicles india is a 2d stealth platformer where you play as Arbaaz Mir, after a gem as well as his boo..
    This is a much more personal story than chronicles china, making it far more skippable and unimportant however this game does take care of some issues of the previous game in this trilogy.
    Chronicles India is about 7 hours long which made it a longer experience than chronicles china, but not necessarily a more enjoyable one.
    Here your goal is to get through each of this games chapters section by section.
    Each starts with a cutscene of still images, and youre thrown into the world and your goal is to either kill everyone with combat or stealth, or sneak through unseen…
    And unless you don’t care about upgrades you have no other choice as youre graded at the end and earn points..
    The game takes away gameplay freedom by forcing you to stick to one play style and one play style only in each section if you want more health, a larger helix bar, or to carry more consumable items…
    These sections are far more enjoyable to get through than chrinicles china were for example though..
    Much less frustrating, much less trial and error…
    I felt more free form, understanding what to do instantly.
    All of the same mechanics are here of dashing through hiding spots, filling a meter to make you unstable for a limited time or able to dash through hiding spots unseen, but the tools are different.. here youre still able to whistle or throwobjects to make sound and distract, but different is the ability to throw an item to cut ropes which in rare cases allows you the opportunity to drop objects on enemies heads, and smoke bombs which are useful for getting past annoying patrol…
    Chronicles india is much less focused on combat this time as well..
    Every level is set up for you to find assassination opportunities, as certain enemies can only be taken out with ledge kills for example…
    you have to time patrol pattern, make sure no one else is around during mandatory clear the room missions…
    I had more fun strategizing here… reminding me of the arkham games predator challenges at times
    but if things do resort to combat this game just falls apart..
    What the chronicles games do poorly that the main games nail is the idea that your character is proficient in both combat and stealth.. here youre dead in one to two hits..
    you can dodge bullets, and parry, but a lot of the time it isn’t going to matter.. there are too many enemies to dealth with and it becomes overwhelming… combat just isn’t fun and its needlessly difficult…
    id much rather this game be stealth focused and make you lose points if youre detected, but being detected not being an issue.. you can still fight your way out.. you just don’t get the upgrades at the end of the level.. but that’s not how it works..
    youre punished by having to redo sections all over again…
    Like chronicles china this game shines when it focuess on platforming and chases…
    its thrilling at times to be running, sliding and slaying fools while an elephant chases you, or hopping from building to building or from cube to cube, dodging death rays in eden temples..
    I said it before and Ill say it again…
    These would be great games if they were just 5 hours of that…running and platforming…
    or even if it were primarily that and you did the stealth bits on occasion
    but the way it is now with the endless stealth sections and griding makes these games ultimately feel like a frustrating unfun chore…
    And with a poor story unlike chinas, its one hardly worth getting through.
    I give Assassins Creed Chronicles India
    a 6/10
