The imperative to cash in on Black Flag is transparent, but as it turns out a location swap works wonders for igniting the hooded pirate in you again.

Those who yearn for a return to Black Flag's sandbox will take comfort knowing this is "more of the same," as the clichéd review expression goes. But, Rogue's systems do nothing to move Assassin's Creed forward, leaving it fittingly stuck in the past like the last-generation consoles it graces. Anyone who expects more will be disappointed. Anyone who just wants another open-world adventure replete with sailing, exploration, and killing might find comfort in its familiar ways.

If you can tolerate the aging hardware, pick it up to experience a flawed but interesting footnote on Black Flag's tested formula.

Assassin's Creed Rogue offers one of the most ambitious and compelling stories in the franchise, but is still saddled with the same stale gameplay of the last couple games.

With a story hampered by familiar mechanics, 'Assassin's Creed Rogue' is a worthwhile adventure for only the most devoted of fans.

Aside from a few visual bugs and the odd agile guard that hasn't yet worked out how to climb down a ladder, players can spend many unhindered hours doing what Templars do best in Assassin's Creed Rogue.

Assassin's Creed: Rogue is Black Flag with worse writing and (broadly) improved missions. Does very little to alter the formula, but is about as mechanically sound as Assassin's Creed gets and runs well on PC.

While Assassin's Creed Rogue isn't the technical mess Unity seems to be, it's an uninspired title that seems to check the box of "get a last gen title out the door". There are some good elements here, but nothing that actually innovates or pushes forward. The game is a decent Creed game, and another great pirate game, but it's ultimately just more of the same.

The glue holding it all together as more than just a stale repurpose of the previous games is the story.
