The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India reviews are out and overall they are a disappointment. The game appears to have garnered a mediocre review, with most top game website rating it barely playable. Here are the roundup of the top Assassin’s Creed Chronicle: India reviews on the web at the moment
Push Square (5/10): Aside from the setting, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India doesn’t make much of an effort to distance itself from its side-scrolling predecessor. While its stealth system works well and its combat feels good, it’s just more of the same. The dialogue is dull, the art style doesn’t look good at all, and the game just doesn’t have much appeal. It’s certainly not bad, it’s just so bang average that you’ll have seen it all before.
Gamesradar+ (2.5/5): Ultimately a simple platformer with some good ideas and lovely art style, Chronicles India stumbles because its different pieces don’t work together cohesively. It’s worth a play if you absolutely must partake of every Assassin’s Creed game, or if you’re a determined stealth aficionado willing to overlook its flaws. Otherwise, just stick to Chronicles China – you’ll be happier in the end.
The Sixth Axis (6/10): Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India is a decent game though I think China was the better outing, mainly due to the story. India’s plot just seems to limp along without a truly satisfying ending, whereas China’s had a lot more emotional investment within, though it was still quite shallow too. Either way, ACC: India manages to keep the stealth gameplay fun, while the open combat still leaves room for improvement. If you’re a fan of Assassin’s Creed then it will suit you, though perhaps you’d be better off waiting for the collection. ACC: India can be completed within a day or two, so if you’re looking for something to fill the time there are worse things.”
Brash Games (6/10): It’s obvious what Ubisoft’s intentions were with Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, and with the Chronicles series as a whole. They clearly wish to create something new and different with the safety of the well-loved and extremely popular Assassin’s Creed world behind it. If the game just featured more fighting, more originality and a less-linear journey, this game could have been a winner and if it wasn’t for the art which I found to be absolutely stunning, I probably would have given India a lower rating.
Gadgets 360 (6/10): Unless you’re a hardcore Assassin’s Creed fan, the stellar art direction and a unique setting isn’t enough to warrant purchasing Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India at the moment. There are makings of a good game buried underneath, but you’re better off waiting for a price drop or the inevitable retail release later this year.
