I had a blast playing Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Although the campaign was a little short with only seven main memory sequences, it was still a very enjoyable game. When it comes down to plot, this game was a little better than Unity. The main differences I noticed were that the controls were very different, and instead of using medicine to heal, your health just recharges.
Rogue also was very much like Black Flag in quite a lot of ways. The first main similarity was that you travel a lot by sea, and of course you battle with other ships when you travel. Second similarity was fort battles. With these battles you must breakdown the fort’s defenses before moving in and killing its captain. If you’ve played Black Flag then you know that you done this in Black Flag too. Remember to collect supplies at sea as well, so you can upgrade your ship. Over all rogue feels like Black Flag 2, but of course on the side of the Templars.
Graphics: The graphics were very good for being on the 360, and not Next Gen. On top of the graphics being good, there were no glitches that interfered with them, and everything ran very smoothly. I’m actually very impressed with what Ubisoft has done with the 360 version.
Story: I know my favorite part of the Assassin’s Creed franchise is learning more about the Precursers, and Rogue doesn’t disappoint in giving the player more background about them. Although the plot was very good, I did feel that the chacacter development was a little bit better in Unity, but don’t get me wrong Rogue’s characters aren’t bad by any means.
Bottom Line: if you’ve played other Assassin’s Creed games, then you will not be disappointed with this installment, and there’s actually a lot to do after you completed the main story, so just give it a try.
Update: I recommend playing both games for the main story, because they both are connected to one another.
