Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India
Top Critic Average
I really enjoyed Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, but I think this one takes a giant leap forward. While the core mechanics remain functionally the same, that (even more) exotic setting and (lesser known) time period, brilliant environment design and brief, but effective, narrative all combine to make something that offers just that little bit more.
Unfortunately, the difficulty often marred the pacing of the game, turning areas into repetitive trial and error experiments just to figure out how to sneak by a couple guards.
Despite an obligatory narrative, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India is an excellent continuation of this unique spinoff and I can't wait to get my hands on the third game next month.
If you enjoyed the previous installment of Assassin's Creed Chronicles, then you'll find more of the same here. It won't convert anyone who didn't like the last game, but it does provide more stealth platforming at an affordable price.
Chronicles India tries to do something more than the China chapter. While still highly enjoyable, is a little more unfocused and unpolished than the previous game.

A good second stab for Ubisoft's latest spin-off series, India makes up for what it lacks in excitement with visual flare.
If you enjoyed Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China and hankering for more of the same, then India definitely delivers on that level and if you missed the previous game but enjoy some classic platforming with a next-gen twist, this is definitely a title you should check out. The gameplay is sturdy, the graphics mirror painted art and audio create an enjoyable adventure (albeit short) through another part of the Assassin's Creed franchise. In terms of replay value and once you've completed the main game, the title does give the player more challenging modes to complete the game again and fine-tune your assassin skills.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India bietet eine solide Leistung für einen 2,5 Platformer, schwächelt aber etwas im Storystelling und bietet auch sonst zu wenig neues. Falls euch der Vorgänger zugesagt hat, werdet ihr auf jeden Fall auch mit dem neuesten Chronicles Abenteuer euren Spaß haben. Für alle anderen, empfehlen wir eher auf Besserungen im letzten Abschnitt der Reihe zu hoffen, wo es euch nach Russland verschlagen wird.

The middle chapter of the Chronicles trilogy improves the formula, but doesn't perfect it.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India, isn't a whole lot different compared to China, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on your prior experience. It sports a slightly less interesting character and setting, but the core experience is replicated, and the addition of a few gameplay tweaks as well as the aforementioned challenge mode ensures that it's on the level.
