  1. While Rogue is overshadowed by Assassin’s Creed Unity‘s next generation marketing blitz, it’s a meaty additional chapter that provides greater depth to some fan-favourite characters.

    Assassin’s Creed Rogue delivers a unique twist on the story by putting players on the other side, for once, and offering an insight as to how the Templar Order operates.

    In many ways, Rogue feels like the perfect closing chapter to the generation of consoles that gave the series their start, while also shining a light on some of the areas that need to improve going forward.

    With that said, the primary flaw in Assassin's Creed Rogue is the plot. Conrad, in Heart of Darkness, wrote "showing in this remark the weakness of many tellers of tales who seem so often unaware of what their audience would best like to hear." And Ubisoft Sofia has succumbed to these weaknesses. Rogue does not tell the story players want to hear.

    Even though Unity arguably is the braver game of the two, Rogue might just be the better one.

    Far more gripping than its Xbox One counterpart. [Issue#119, p.66]

    I disliked Assassin's Creed Rogue on almost every level, from its numerous game-breaking bugs, to its terrible free-running, and (worst of all) its ruined assassination system. Not even the plot, which fills in the gap between Black Flag and Assassin's Creed 3 while recounting the fall of the North American Brotherhood, is very satisfying.

    While a good majority of gamers say that sequels are required to be better in every way (even if its not possible) than their predecessor, IWhile a good majority of gamers say that sequels are required to be better in every way (even if its not possible) than their predecessor, I don't entirely agree with that notion. Assassin's Creed Rogue may be using the same technology used for Black Flag, but it has significant improvements that makes it better than Black Flag. For Example, I was really annoyed in Black Flag that I could upgrade my ship from Captain's Quarters but have to drop anchor at the nearest City to go to a shop to buy weapons and outfits for myself. I didn't like the whole Naval Fleet part of the game that required me to be signed in to Xbox Live to play. Thankfully, its all available offline as well. Puckle Gun and focused ramming is a major improvement as far as Naval Gameplay is concerned. Whaling (although controversial) is made a bit challenging and you don't look like a totally different character while doing it. Taking fortresses doesn't look repetitive anymore. These are just some of the improvements.

    While the gameplay has improved, so has the story. This is the first time after Ezio, I actually invested in a character in AC Titles. The story builds up Shay Cormac's fallout with the Assassin's brilliantly with a very impressive sequence. His motivations are also very clear unlike Edward's. Rogue tries to tie all the loose ends from the previous entries, but you can't keep everyone happy so without putting up any spoilers, I would say this was a very decent attempt at that.

    I was sold on this game at the Main Menu. Mashup of many memorable soundtracks of the previous games mainly, Ezio's Family. That is a +1 for me.

    I would rate this behind AC: Brotherhood and AC2 at 9

Rogue is a direct sequel toy AC IV:Much better than the reviews give it credit for and also a lot better than AC Unity, which is a shame. Rogue is a direct sequel toy AC IV: Black Flag in every possible way. Which is a good thing. Really enjoyed this game and gathering all the collectibles. The Templar point of view is also intriguing. Great locations for exploring, improved naval combat. Only thing I didn't like was the annoying protagist. Definitely one of the better AC games. Expand
