Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is the part of the Chronicles series. It is the first installment out of three in total with the other games being dedicated to India and Russia.


The game is the two-dimensional platformer with the agile camera which can be tilted. Such titles are also called 2,5D platformers. The protagonist encounters waves of enemies, and the player chooses between the various weaponry to deal with them. There are also parkour elements: one climbs ledges, jumps onto wooden beams and uses ropes to travel around the levels.
Substantial attention is paid to the stealth mechanics. The protagonist can crawl behind the obstacles and take enemies down from a distance. The Chronicles are in the way reminiscent to the original Prince of Persia series.
The game is composed of twelve episodes and takes place in China provinces like Na'an and Macau.


The game is the straight sequel of Assassin's Creed: Embers — the short film about Shao Jun — the disciple of Ezio Auditore who is the protagonist of the three previous Assassin's Creed chapters. The setting is the XVI century China during the Ming Dynasty rule. After the training under the guidance of Ezio ended, Shao returned to China to fight the local Templar clan called Eight Tigers.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China reviews and comments

tja Assassisn Creed Chronicles China in 2d Optics udn in China?? Can that go well?? Well after I chewed it, installed it, I camouflaged ges and I got tied up (as Assassisn Creedfan who has the complete Row on Disc and searched) with the China-tting. As Assassin Shao Jun the last surviving assassin of the China Brotherhood to return to her Homeland to Retaliate. Newly instructed by the legendary Ezio Auditore, she burns to take Revenge and rebuild her fallen brotherhood. Pro: + good Graphics for a 2DGame + Assassin meuchelt Templer nice + Chinasetting Contra: No Reallifeszenen control for Assassins Creed'S Typically weird conclusion: For a 2DGame Assassins Creed Chronicles China is a good Game. With the Game you can shorten the Waiting Time to the next big Assassins Creed. In addition, ncoh 2more Episodes are supposed to come to Russia and India!! P.S.: A Must for an Assassins CreedFan

For a long time I wrestled with myself if I bought the Game at all. So there were Rumors at first that it can only be played with Controllers. Now the £9.90 I definitely have no regrets. It can also be played super with a Keyboard. Again a 2D game which really makes you feel like. Feeling a bit of the Flair of Prince on Persia. Good Mark of the Nina there is certainly also this one is in the Steammarket but currently even more expensive But certainly has longer fun. Nevertheless, Assassin'S Creed China is really recommended. The really pretty Swipe Graphic with soft Animations did it to me. The Story is also really good especially I've been waiting forever for an AC Part in China. I really think the numerous small Gadgets as well as the Possibility Of several solutions. The Reward System is really good, too. There is only one Degree of Difficulty at the Beginning, despite everything, I do not find it too light or too heavy. And with about 3GB, the Game isn't exactly big and a good Pastime for In Between. A very clear YES for the Purchase.

Detailed Rewiev: Personally, I thought the Artstyle was very nice, but if you don't like it will have a bit hard I think. He lets you immerse yourself in old China and the Music supports the Atmosphere quite well. To Gameplay I have to say that there is a Motivation to always go undetected, precisely because there is no Compulsion. To get the full Score, you have to finish the Level undetected and without Killings. Especially the later Levels become very difficult if you always want to get the full Score. I invested far more Hours in this Game than I needed because I had to play some Levels over and over again until I got the full Score. When It comes to Levels, the Gameplay is sometimes a bit frustrating because it depends on accurate Timing, but never can be done. The Combat System is quite heavy, which is an additive to proceed creeping. The Game is 2Dimensional built, but switching between levels brings nice variety. The Story is good but not outstanding, the Missions are like many Assassin's Creed parts: Kill these Individuals to save the Brotherhood. Conclusion: For Players who are looking for a Challenge, have Patience and are not frustrated too quickly a clear Buy recommendation!
Nothing really special, it is similar to Mark of the Ninja, but with AC setting. Have to mention above an average difficulty, some moments was really challenging. On the bright side it takes only 6-7 hours to beat.
