Mar 25, 2013Making games that resemble TV show episodes is not a bad idea. Unfortunately The Tyranny of King Washington is much worse than, say, The Walking Dead (considered to be one of the best episodic games ever). The new DLC - The Betrayal, much like The Infamy before it, is short, boring and gives little place for Connor to use his new skills. After the debut of the last episode, we'll know whether this mini-trilogy is salvageable or not.

Aug 22, 2013This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The second episode seemed to be the weakest of the three for me. I really liked the eagle power and this made traversing the rooftops of Boston and New York that much easier.

May 1, 2013this new episode isn't quite amazing and isn't what i was expecting i guess my expectations are too high or something but this DLC is a good part to king Washington and is better than the first one but it still leaves you with that i want more feeling but has the same amazing environment that the first had but one thing i don't understand is the whole deal with the red coats like are they British wanting to take America back or just rebels dressed as British or were the developers just too lazy to make new character skins and unfortunately they never saw hopefully they do with the last episode… Full Review »
Apr 28, 2013Why all the hate for this DLC?
It's brilliant! After the averageness of AC3 this DLC really took AC3 back to it's core whilst fulfilling the true potential of a game set in a period of history.
The real star of this DLC is the environment. It's so interesting to see how the environment has changed. Also people seem to be complaining about it cheapening AC3's story but it makes it REALLY CLEAR that this DLC is NON-CANON AT THE START!
Animal powers are an interesting concept that could be overpowered but aren't.
My only problem is that you don't get to see that many AC3 characters in this new universe and that whilst Washington is an interesting villain he disappears after the start.
So this DLC is a decent experiment that pays off big time and takes AC back to it's core gameplay.… Full Review »
