    Despite an obligatory narrative, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India is an excellent continuation of this unique spinoff and I can't wait to get my hands on the third game next month.

    Chronicles India tries to do something more than the China chapter. While still highly enjoyable, it's a little more unfocused and unpolished than the previous game.

    A good second stab for Ubisoft's latest spin-off series, India makes up for what it lacks in excitement with visual flare.

    An improvement on its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India is a more varied game that at it’s best, is pretty damn good. But a handful of poor choices and underdeveloped ideas hold it back.

    Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India, isn't a whole lot different compared to China, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on your prior experience. It sports a slightly less interesting character and setting, but the core experience is replicated, and the addition of a few gameplay tweaks as well as the aforementioned challenge mode ensures that it's on the level.

    Not quite the diamond in the rough, India is at times sumptuous but often shallow in almost every other way.

    Assassin’s Creed couldn’t afford another step in the wrong direction, and yet, here we are again. ACC: Russia is still a few weeks away, but Climax will seriously need to re-evaluate its core systems and mechanics to give it a chance to succeed. Chronicles was a leap of faith for Ubisoft; this time there isn’t a bail of hay there to break the fall.

    The Game is perfect with 2d beautiful graphics and more tools to use in every mission
    but the most greater way to finish is to go all stealth

    The second chapter in Climax Studios' Assassin's Creed spin-off series is hands down one of the most beautiful games ever created. The lavishThe second chapter in Climax Studios' Assassin's Creed spin-off series is hands down one of the most beautiful games ever created. The lavish use of colors is a step up from the rather dull look of Chronicles' previous outing in China. Unfortunately, the same can't be said of India's gameplay as I enjoyed my time with Shao Jun much more than I did with the new protagonist Abraaz.

    India lacks China's alternative paths and therefore feels like a more constrictive experience. The cheap instant deaths can also provide frustration and lead to occasional bouts of trial and error. I appreciated the greater variety in tasks though. The escape levels that have you outracing danger and destruction have returned and are as exhilarating as ever. India will also shake things up in other ways, like putting you behind the lens of a sniper rifle and having you take out enemies from afar. The core stealth and platforming gameplay is still solid. Methodically clearing out the screen can be a blast and it feels so good when all your hard work comes together for a perfect run. The random bullcrap that sometimes gets in your way can be a pain to deal with though. The new game plus options and challenge rooms extend the game's lifespan a bit. The former allowing you to gain access to all of Abraaz's abilities.

    Those hoping the narrative would improve between the two Chronicles games are going to be let down. Much like China it's basically a whole lot of nothing. Abraaz also comes off as a lame Ezio wannabe. His romance is as uninteresting as the lifeless keep the item away from Templars plot it is contained within. There are no real characters to speak of.

    A disappointing step back for the Chronicles spin-off series India may be, but there's still enough here to be worth recommending provided you enjoyed the previous entry. The core mechanics of the Assassin's Creed series still prove to transfer over to 2.5D quite well. While less satisfying than China there are still some thrills to be found and the improvements to the art style are a sight to behold. It's almost worth playing for the pretty graphics alone.

    Good gameplay,a tougher one,more exciting but lacks creativity when reaching the ending parts.
    Music and sounds aren't bad that much.it reminds me of good old days with Prince of Persia series;of course the theme and atmosphere both are inspired by the "POP" series;we can't mean it "Lacking of creativity";songs are synced to the atmosphere of the game.
    but the story and character progression is worth being called terrible.meaningless mentor(Hamid),a lonely assassin(Arbaaz) who's the savior of an artifact throughout the game(but looks a little mentally tired from the start till the princess gets into trouble!),imaginary assassins who are just appeared in the dialogues not in action,and a princess(like most of the "POP" series) who got nothing to do with the assassin but making trouble for him.

    Assassins Creed Chronicles India
    More Fun than China, but still not fun
    Chronicles india is a 2d stealth platformer where you play as Arbaaz Mir, after a gem as well as his boo..
    This is a much more personal story than chronicles china, making it far more skippable and unimportant however this game does take care of some issues of the previous game in this trilogy.
    Chronicles India is about 7 hours long which made it a longer experience than chronicles china, but not necessarily a more enjoyable one.
    Here your goal is to get through each of this games chapters section by section.
    Each starts with a cutscene of still images, and youre thrown into the world and your goal is to either kill everyone with combat or stealth, or sneak through unseen…
    And unless you don’t care about upgrades you have no other choice as youre graded at the end and earn points..
    The game takes away gameplay freedom by forcing you to stick to one play style and one play style only in each section if you want more health, a larger helix bar, or to carry more consumable items…
    These sections are far more enjoyable to get through than chrinicles china were for example though..
    Much less frustrating, much less trial and error…
    I felt more free form, understanding what to do instantly.
    All of the same mechanics are here of dashing through hiding spots, filling a meter to make you unstable for a limited time or able to dash through hiding spots unseen, but the tools are different.. here youre still able to whistle or throwobjects to make sound and distract, but different is the ability to throw an item to cut ropes which in rare cases allows you the opportunity to drop objects on enemies heads, and smoke bombs which are useful for getting past annoying patrol…
    Chronicles india is much less focused on combat this time as well..
    Every level is set up for you to find assassination opportunities, as certain enemies can only be taken out with ledge kills for example…
    you have to time patrol pattern, make sure no one else is around during mandatory clear the room missions…
    I had more fun strategizing here… reminding me of the arkham games predator challenges at times
    but if things do resort to combat this game just falls apart..
    What the chronicles games do poorly that the main games nail is the idea that your character is proficient in both combat and stealth.. here youre dead in one to two hits..
    you can dodge bullets, and parry, but a lot of the time it isn’t going to matter.. there are too many enemies to dealth with and it becomes overwhelming… combat just isn’t fun and its needlessly difficult…
    id much rather this game be stealth focused and make you lose points if youre detected, but being detected not being an issue.. you can still fight your way out.. you just don’t get the upgrades at the end of the level.. but that’s not how it works..
    youre punished by having to redo sections all over again…
    Like chronicles china this game shines when it focuess on platforming and chases…
    its thrilling at times to be running, sliding and slaying fools while an elephant chases you, or hopping from building to building or from cube to cube, dodging death rays in eden temples..
    I said it before and Ill say it again…
    These would be great games if they were just 5 hours of that…running and platforming…
    or even if it were primarily that and you did the stealth bits on occasion
    but the way it is now with the endless stealth sections and griding makes these games ultimately feel like a frustrating unfun chore…
    And with a poor story unlike chinas, its one hardly worth getting through.
    I give Assassins Creed Chronicles India
    a 6/10

The story is really not interesting and completion of the levels doesnt feel like an achievement. Having said that, its an ok puzzle game that covers itself with the blanket that is the name of the assassins creed franchise. It lucks character but still manages to offer interesting gameplay mechanics. Expand

    Très rapidement, on se rend compte en effet que le "level design" est complètement pété, comme une sorte de blague potache entre développeurs bourrés au gin et défoncés à la moquette, du genre "t'es pas cap" de finir mon niveau, ni celui d'avant, ni celui d'après sans recommencer 538 fois ! (au moins). Parce que t'auras mouru ou que tu te seras fait détecter par les 748 gardes qui ont bu trop de caféine.

    Bon, je l'ai fait en même temps que le Russia pour comparer -je l'ai commencé plutôt- et j'ai constaté qu'on en chie encore pire dès les premiers niveaux que le Russia justement. Alors j'ai désinstallé très sereinement cette merde indé, comme 99% des merdes indés en fait.
