Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India

If you weren't won over by AC Chronicles: China, AC Chronicles: India probably won't change your mind. But if you want a game with some solid stealth gameplay and a sizeable smattering of timed, platforming bits, you probably won't be too disappointed (the low price of admission also helps). It's unfortunate, but I think using the phrase "you probably won't be too disappointed" is an apt way of describing AC Chronicles: India. It's a short, three to four hour romp that you can safely pretend never happened.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a game I enjoyed immensely. It controls and plays better than Assassin’s Creed III and its hard not to enjoy causing all sorts of mayhem on land and sea. Its not perfect, combat is over simplified, but the pure joy I experienced sinking ships and hunting sharks overshadows the niggling issues I encountered. There's a multiplayer component that is sorely lacking player versus player ship combat. Let's hope that gets patched in sooner rather than later! Lush scenery, great characters, costumes and a wonderfully realized naval element are woven into a beautiful, playable vision of the golden age of piracy.

Assassin's Creed III: Liberation

One charge that can never be levied at Ubisoft is a lack of ambition. After five console Assassin's Creed games in just six years, and a smattering of handheld offshoots, the French super-publisher has set it sights on the one device that could be called upon to bridge the gap between fighting the Templars at home, and fighting them wherever one goes: the Playstation Vita.

Assassin's Creed III

While gamers were busy uncovering the Borgia conspiracy and seeking out Altair’s memories in Constantinople, a different team had been charged with crafting an entirely new Assassin’s Creed adventure just after the release of the second game. In many ways, Assassin’s Creed III feels as if it were made independently thanks to a welcome graphical facelift and new gameplay enhancements.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

It’s hard for me to find a bad thing to say about Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, it’s just an amazing game. I remember thinking last year before we knew there was even going to be an AC: Brotherhood that it was going to be hard for Ubisoft to top AC2, but I am happy to say Brotherhood does in every single way. This is flat out a great game.
