The bread and butter of the game involves you as the captain of your ship, navigating out in the open waters to get from place to place, as well as getting hands-on with the full mechanics of steering while firing off cannons at enemy ships. There's a full crew aboard with you, helping to give plenty of liveliness to your surroundings as they shout in anger, sing shanties, and cheer in victory as you go along, along with dynamic weather like raging storms that adds to the realism and intensity. It's a lot of fun and serves as a nice way to break things up from the usual stealth missions on foot. See More
The stealth mechanics feel natural and fluid in how strategic they are. While tracking your targets, you blend in with each city's citizens or climb up to the tops of buildings to perch there and avoid getting spotted by the assassin you're after, or their comrades. You can either wait for the perfect opportunity to strike with a hidden blade up your sleeve that silently assassinates your targets, or you can go all-out and have a sword duel with them if you'd rather take a more aggressive approach. After they're dead, you make your escape and become incognito again. Everything goes together nicely in a way that feels satisfying. See More
Getting to play on and around post-colonial America and the islands across the open seas setting sounds cool, but it's not all that fun from a gameplay perspective. The wooden buildings and huts are quite small and basic, with only some taller churches in the bigger cities. Scaling them doesn't take much effort, and it doesn't reward you with a huge, beautiful view comparable to previous locations like Florence and Rome during the Italian Renaissance. Despite the unique history and culture in these places, they're weak settings to play through. See More
The story in Assassin's Creed Rogue is full of intriguing ideologies and philosophies, especially since you get to play as a templar instead of the usual assassins. It's a familiar tale of liberty and freedom on the Assassin side and law and order on the Templar side, but it still feels fresh. Playing as Shay, it's up to you to assassinate certain assassin targets who oppose your ideologies as a templar. As you take them down, you learn about their views on liberating the populace, encouraging you to question if the assassins are truly on the right path. Thankfully, the game doesn't tell you what to think, leaving you to draw your own conclusions. See More
The fun and addictive multiplayer from previous Assassin's Creed games isn't available here. This is unfortunately only a single-player game. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was the final title to feature the multiplayer, so if you're in the mood for some hide and seek games with stealth and hidden blades, you'll have to pick up that installment instead.
