    Story might be getting a low priority in The Tyranny of King Washington, but at least The Betrayal lets you transform into invisible animals to better hunt your prey. At the very least, it makes Assassin’s Creed 3 fresh again.

    And it's not like Tyranny has intrigue to spare. The very promising core idea here—George Washington as king and maniac—hasn't really spawned any amazing storytelling or clever historical twists. Oddly enough, we've seen very little of King Washington himself, though presumably he'll be the boss of Episode 3.

    Even if the final chapter justifies the journey, this leg of it is sadly lifeless. [June 2013, p.97]

However, I still do have some problems with this DLC. Not too much content, bullsh*t story, easy achievments (on the XBOX) etc. The easily best thing about this DLC is the reward cutscene for collecting the memory fragments, something like The Truth in ACII. If you have the Freedom edition and you have read the Washington diary, you will have understood the logic behind this DLC (better than no logic at all, right?). Expand

It's definitely worth the price, and I'd even go ahead to say that it's better than the main campaign. You're given 3 animal powers total, 1 each episode, and it blends in really well with the gameplay, and level design. Get this! Expand

Beyond that it is the same horrible AC3 gameplay with a new, useless power. Each DLC introduces a new power and then forces you to use it for the rest of the DLC. What a joke. One day Ubisoft might realize that what made the original AC/AC2 fun was the assassinations. Now you have to play through a couple of hours before you get to anything remotely resembling an assassination and that is at the end of the DLC. The objectives continue to be balanced towards forcing you to use the "cool" new power (that actually is pretty useless). Combat is even more broken in the DLC than in the original if you can even imagine that. If it wasn't for the writing the DLC would be abysmal. If you liked AC3 you'll like this DLC. If you didn't then the DLC will do nothing to make you like it any more. Expand

    Why bother even getting DLC for this, when the next Assassin's Creed comes already this fall?
