A youthful Assassin, Shao Jun, fled to the West to complete her training under the16th-century China: The newly appointed Jiajing Emperor instigates a sudden and ruthless purge of all he felt were a threat to his recently-acquired throne, including the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins. A youthful Assassin, Shao Jun, fled to the West to complete her training under the legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore in the animated short Assassin’s Creed Embers and has returned, determined to restore the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.

    A stripped down stealth offering that reinvigorates Assassin's Creed by putting attention back on the sneaky stuff.

    This spinoff doesn't need to hide in the shadows of the other titles of the series. This stealth 2D platformer is very motivating with diverse gameplay.

    It's nice to take a break from the increasingly convoluted plot of the main storyline with a straightforward tale of revenge set in a historic corner of the world that often doesn't get a lot of attention in Western video games.
  4. Do you want to know what happened to Ezio's last apprentice? Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China is answer for this question. It's a clone of Mark of Ninja. It's still fun but it should release for mobile devices. It gives a new lore for Assassin's Creed fans.

    An interesting game, despite its hangups and frustrating difficulty. [June 2015, p.64]
  6. To boil it down to the very basics: Chronicles is a platformer, a reincarnation of old Prince of Persia. There are no famous landmark, no intricate story involving multitude of historical personages. Even the weapons selection is very barebone. [June 2015, p.80]

    Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China makes an attempt to renew the franchise, unfortunately it fails. Neither the stealth- or action sequences are particularly well-made and neither is the level design. To appreciate this you need to be a huge fan of the series.

Even the last about the communists, though it was worse than about India and China. Expand

Juego ambientado en China, con unos escenarios decentes, unas mecánicas de juego bastante entretenidas y una historia aceptable. Tu decides si matar a todo dios, o pasar desapercibido. La lucha con los jefes es nula, los combates podrían estar mas pulido y el sigilo es correcto sin mas. El juego es algo corto, pero aun asi, me parece un buen titulo, entretenido y con el toque Assassin de siempre. Expand

    if you want a "2.5D" stealth game, play that instead of this.

    Ubisoft, pkease, PLEASE, give the whole "Assassin's Creed" series a rest!
    even fans DO_NOT_WANT a "new" game **** quality suffered greatly over the years and instead of some innovation, or fixing that broken "fighting-NON-system", you **** out at least one AC game every year, though it's been rather TWO games over the past years.

    GIVE ASSASSIN'S CREED A REST - NOBODY WANTS MORE OF THE SAME, IT GETS OLD!
    instead of this game, buy "Mark of the Ninja", for it it does everything better, than this game.

    Assassin's Creed China is a fairly reasonable attempt at a 2.5D platform sneakathon. It's okay if you don't mind the very different approachAssassin's Creed China is a fairly reasonable attempt at a 2.5D platform sneakathon. It's okay if you don't mind the very different approach Ubisoft decided to go with this. I on the other hand and as personal opinion, am pretty disappointed. It was a good opportunity to really go to town with oriental culture coupling it with the AC graphics of before, they might have easily outdone themselves with this, but I find the approach taken here too simplistic in comparison to the rest of the series, and whilst it may be a welcome break for many, some will certainly not be happy with it. For me, their idea of China seems to be very bland for the period they were aiming at. China is no land of desert browns and rich reds, and it has always had fascinating architecture, and this is something that they really missed out on with this platform attempt.

    For me, it harkened too much to the days of the very first Prince of Persia for me and that is something I'd hoped these folk would have avoided.

    Never mind.

    If you like platforms, you'll probably love this. For those hoping for more of the (preferably stable and smooth - unlike Unity) same in the AC series, sadly, this is one to miss out, but you might want to borrow it instead.

    A poorly written and mechanically inconsistent version of Mark of the Ninja. Get Mark of the Ninja instead.
