  1. Assassin's Creed Rogue puts the player in a deep story that lasts as long as 22 hours. Weapons, combat system and new mysteries are all impressive. However, the lack of a multiplayer mode is a downright disappointment.

    Yes, Rogue hardly differs from Black Flag, but it's just right.

    Even though it's a "minor" Assassin's, it takes the best of the fourth episode and creates a very interesting experience. The visuals could have seen a bigger improvement, but still it's a good adaptation.

    The imperative to cash in on Black Flag is transparent, but as it turns out a location swap works wonders for igniting the hooded pirate in you again.

    It's a fitting coda to the "Colonial America" story arc that should satisfy hardcore fans. [May 2015, p.68]

    Rogue is following the footsteps of pirate Black Flag, whose fans will enjoy almost the same gameplay. PC conversion is perfectly optimized indeed, but visually it loses enough already, plus control may not suit everyone.

    Assassin's Creed: Rogue is Black Flag with worse writing and (broadly) improved missions. Does very little to alter the formula, but is about as mechanically sound as Assassin's Creed gets and runs well on PC.

    One of the best assassin's game. That's great, that you can see another side of conflict between assassins and templars. I'm dream about sequel.

    Well, I'll start by saying that this game could have been called Assassin's Creed: Black Flag 2, but who cares? It's a formula that in myWell, I'll start by saying that this game could have been called Assassin's Creed: Black Flag 2, but who cares? It's a formula that in my honest opinion works much better than the one used in Unity, where they removed some of the best features of the previous game. The naval combat and exploration is awesome, there are some epic battles waiting for you, whether you try to conquer a fort or instead choose to engage on a legendary battle with a ship, much like in ACIV:BF. I love the sense of freedom, and all the activities that are at my disposal and that can be re-done almost whenever I like, such as "harpooning", engage on battle with enemy ships to gather resources or reinforce my fleet to the naval campaign, or if I'm just tired of going around on the sea, I can also go hunt or try to plunder a couple of warehouses! All of this has been removed from Unity, and it was nice to have them back on this game. So yeah, all in all it's being an extremely positive experience, the game doesn't look as big as ACU for completion's sake, but it feels very fresh all the time. I'm still on a very initial stage of the game, but I'm positive this feeling of freshness will remain until the end. To be honest, I think this is the second best game of the series, in parallel with ACIV, only surpassed by ACII, which introduced incredible innovations at the time.

    Now, more technically speaking, of course the textures aren't as crisp as in Unity, which was predictable, given the system requirements and the fact that this is basically a port of a game released for the previous generation consoles. Still, they do the job, and not being as detailed and crisp as Unity, it's certainly more beautiful, with its jungles, caves, settlements and last but not least, almost endless sea :)

    The gameplay is also on par with what we've been used to on the series, the parkour is not perfect, so the land exploration and hunting can be annoying a couple of times, when you jump down the tree instead of climbing up, or when you miss by inches a rocky ledge and fall to your death. The gameplay really shines on the naval battles, sometimes I feel that this is the main purpose of the game, since it's so very well thought and designed.

    I don't know what else I should say about this game, so maybe I'll just mention a couple of cons just as to my review doesn't sound too biased. As I said before, the parkour isn't perfect, resulting in a couple of accidents when you try to do some basic looking manoeuvres when you're on foot, and the enemies' AI is also poor, I think it's never been easier to hide from enemies after you've been detected. Sometimes I'm hidden in a bush, an enemy comes to me, I kill him and hide him instantly in the bush, and there was an enemy a couple of meters away looking on my direction and he doesn't even notice his mate has been assassinated.

    All in all, I think it's a great game, I'd easily recommend it to anyone who's new to the series or to anyone who's already a veteran. Of course that if you played ACIV:BF and didn't like it, you'll probably won't enjoy this one either. However, if you liked ACIV:BF, you'll definitely love Rogue, so go ahead and get it. The series are probably taking a turn to a totally different direction, I'm not very optimistic about it after playing Unity, so let's enjoy this "old" take on the series while we can.

    Cheers, I hope this review has been helpful to you.

    AC: Rogue mostly takes place before the events of AC3, and combines elements from both AC3 and Black Flag. It introduces little with regardsAC: Rogue mostly takes place before the events of AC3, and combines elements from both AC3 and Black Flag. It introduces little with regards to new gameplay mechanics, and as is current Ubisoft tradition, about 70% of what the game has to offer are either mindless collectibles or repetitive side missions with little depth. It's long overdue for the Assassin's Creed formula to undergo some major overhauls as each new iteration seems to become more and more uninspired and stale. The gameplay is enticing, but only in short bursts. That 70% does a lot to pad the game length, but its entertainment value is short-lived.

    What I will say however, is that the game does bridge a lot of the story and character threads between AC3, Black Flag and Unity, making this episode of the Assassin's Creed franchise bring about some cohesion to all four games. The overarching modern day storyline however sees very little actual progression, and is barely a few steps ahead of where AC4 let alone AC3 left off.

    Overall rating - 7.0/10

    Assassin's Creed Rogue is the seventh major installment of the famous stealth action adventure series. From the very beginning I was surprisedAssassin's Creed Rogue is the seventh major installment of the famous stealth action adventure series. From the very beginning I was surprised by how many aspects of the game were outright copied from the previous installment and the game could definitely be sold as a expansion or the Black Flag for half the price. The graphics is the same, with some minor differences ( the sea ), The music is the same ( a couple of new shanties ). The boring grind for ubisoft collectibles is the same. The difficulty is still nonexistent ( with the exception of one five minute legendary naval battle ). The controls are still pretty clunky and awkward for me. As for the story, that is the one area that actually improved in my opinion. I felt like it was more interesting and real somehow. And finally the microtransactions and the SJW crap is sadly still the same as well.

    If this was an expansion for the Black Flag, It would have definitely been an improvement. As a new game, it is too little. Final verdict: 63 %
