Late Gamer Plays Assassins’ Creed Rogue
A Review From Hidai Moya
This is perhaps the most underrated & unappreciated entry of the entire series. Rogue is the connective tissue binding together the story & characters of ACIII, ACIV, & Unity.
Its story is also the most unique premise of the franchise as you play as a former Assassin turned Templar. Using the engine from ACIVI I was quite impressed with unique direction this game took & the way it implemented historical events to tell its adventure.
The North American wilderness during the French & Indian War is the backdrop for some really fun & varied side missions & level design. For the first time in a AC naval game, enemies can board your ship & you get to stop assassinations instead of committing them. Shay is a memorable character you can empathize with so when he turned Templar I felt that I understood his reasons why.
The only sin this game commits may be that the campaign is quite short, but there is loads of side content to do I didn’t mind. Others have critiqued this game for not being long enough, meaningful enough, and having an empty open world. I completely & totally disagree with those bad critiques.
If you are a hardcore AC fan like me I think you will really enjoy this entry. Not only is there tons to do but story is one of the most substantial of the series.
