Assassin’s Creed Rogue
I didn’t enjoy Assassin’s Creed Rogue as much as I would have, had I not played Unity first. Unity was sheer pleasure, with a few graphical glitches. It was massive, inspiring, and a new location and period. Dusting off the 360 to play Rogue felt like a step backwards. Don’t get me wrong, Rogue looks amazing on the 360, and plays wonderfully. The trouble is that it feels just like Black Flag, in a slightly different setting and with a few new features.
The changing of sides is a neat diversion, and the dangers of diving into icy waters is a nice touch, and there is plenty to do and explore. It would have been the next natural progressing for me from Black Flag. If I had played it before Unity.
So whilst this may not seem like much of a review, it’s simple really. If you have made the jump to the XBox One (or Sony equivalent) then play Unity. If you’re still happy playing with your 360, get a copy of Rogue stat! Especially if you loved Black Flag. It’s a game that won’t disappoint last gen gamers, indeed will give them much pleasure in their decision to stay with the old faithful. It certainly isn’t some quick cash in game, it’s one of the fullest Assassin games of the last generation as the developers were able to put all their work into creating a much better game than having to recreate a new era.
It could possibly be the last great game on the 360.
