    With a new storyline and Connor’s new ability, this DLC still feels like the main game in its sense but with a few tweaks here and there.

    The first DLC of Assassin's Creed 3 refreshes the gameplay of the series with the stealth-based mechanics of the wolf power, a power that gives Connor a new set of abilities but without making him overpowered. The main mission lasts for a couple of hours, but there's plenty of extra content for those looking for the complete synchronization.

    This episode is the beginning of this all-fictional spin on the main antagonist’s actions, and if it keeps up the pace is sure to offer a lot of diverse, exciting gameplay never before seen in the series.

    An enjoyably daft storyline. [Apr 2013, p.80]

    In The Infamy, the first of three episodes of Assassin's Creed 3 DLC that make up a campaign set in an alternate history, Washington trades virtue for monarchal power: The Tyranny of King Washington.

    The Tyranny of King Washington changes the way you play Assassin’s Creed 3: the new powers are a lot of fun to use and the new story, in this parallel world, could be intriguing. We want to use the wolf, eagle and bear power in the main story too!

    If Assassin's Creed 3 saw the series gracefully soar back into full flight, Tyranny is where it lets you strap on a jet-pack for the next adventure.

    If you play Assassin’s Creed primarily for the single-player experience, The Tyranny of King Washington is definitely worth it. Think of it in terms of Marvel’s alternate-storyline What If comics: It’s fun for what it is, but it doesn’t surpass the original in terms of enjoyment.

    The Infamy gives us an interesting ‘what if’ concept. We see Washington as this crazy lunatic, instead of the American Patriot. Besides that, we can run more in the world of Assassin’s Creed III and killing the enemies still feels so good.

    As if the lure of an evil founding father weren't enough, The Tyranny of King Washington ups the action with enjoyable new abilities and a stimulating plot.

    four words; Too short, over priced !

    Who pays ~$12 bucks for a 2.5hr prologue teaser, me I guess, but not again...

    And most of my in game time was spent slogging through waste deep snow looking for some in game value...

    Loved the game, but mad as h#ll for wasting dollars on this tripe.

    Sorry people, this DLC is just not worth the cash in my opinion, KGW won't be getting another pound of flesh from this gamer....
