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. In Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, players come back to Shao Jun’s story as she returns to China hell-bent on retribution. Her story takes players to famous locales including the Maijishan Grottoes, Port of Macau, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China. Armed with stealth, agility and a combination of deadly weapons and equipment including a sharp and swift jian, a secret shoe blade, lethal rope darts and daggers, players deliver payback to those who decimated 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.

    Honestly, I was very surprised by the low ratings of the chronicles trilogy. Yes, this is not a full-fledged Assassin, ay-ay-ay how to liveHonestly, I was very surprised by the low ratings of the chronicles trilogy. Yes, this is not a full-fledged Assassin, ay-ay-ay how to live now? ...But still it is a very colorful and interesting platformer. Even the last about the communists, though it was worse than about India and China. Expand

    Full disclosure: Im a big AC fan and i got it for free on epic.
    It's completable in about 6h so its quite short but it's long enough for what

    It's completable in about 6h so its quite short but it's long enough for what they are going for. It's not a fully fleded out AC game but it's clearly a short offshoot. It's quite difficult if you re going for higher scores / stealhier aproach. The art style is good. The controls are good. There's a little bit of lore. And it's mostly consistent mechanically. Get it if you are a big fan if it's on a deep sale, otherwise there are of a lot of better 2D side scrollers out there.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Stealth can be even slower than other AC games at times. The combat is just weird, it doesn't feel right to me personally, it feels weirdly difficult/just badly designed. This is the first game in the AC series I just put down and didn't finish. Dissapointing since I think the visuals are really cool. Story is kinda bland too. Expand

    Boring and lazy piece of crap, artstyle is unique but looks bad anyway and gameplay can be fine and fun sometimes but still its bland and funBoring and lazy piece of crap, artstyle is unique but looks bad anyway and gameplay can be fine and fun sometimes but still its bland and fun for like first ten minutes, escape sequences were ok at least. Story is practically non existent. Expand
