A stripped down stealth offering that reinvigorates Assassin's Creed by putting attention back on the sneaky stuff.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China does a lot of the hard stuff well, but can't convey the rush of being an assassin.

Though it sheds many of the series' best elements, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China has its own charm, and is worth a play for those in search of a simple stealth experience.

As a 2D interpretation of Assassin's Creed this works perfectly well, but the workmanlike design and bland atmosphere makes it hard to get excited about.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China features some great stealth gameplay reminiscent of Klei Entertainment's Mark of the Ninja.
