Assassin's Creed Rogue review: The best Assassin's Creed you'll never need to play

Hayden Dingman | April 7, 2015
I talked a lot of trash about Assassin's Creed: Unity this year. On release it was buggy and broken, sure, but it also just wasn't much fun. Protagonist Arno was just a bland retread of series-favorite Ezio, the story managed to make even the French Revolution feel sort of boring, the overhauled free-running was too sticky and cumbersome, and I just overall felt it lacked the panache of the previous year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Bottom line

Play Rogue if you want more Black Flag. Play Rogue if you want to learn about the complex relationship between the Assassins and Templars. Play Rogue if you hated Unity and want a better Assassin's Creed experience this year.

Those are the three cases I can think of where you might end up playing this game. Is it essential? Absolutely not. But there's a decent game here, and my only real regret is you can tell there's the potential for a much better game if only the developers were given more to work with.
