Review: Assassin's Creed: Rogue
 
Recommended: Assassin's Creed: Rogue suffers from a few of the classic Creed bugbears, but beyond those it's a very solid offering that recovers quite well from the failure that was Unity.  A fairly iterative title, Rogue seems to take a selection of the mechanics from previous games that worked, discards those that didn't, and tightens things into a cohesive whole that was engaging and pretty fun.  If there's anything weak to Rogue it's the actual land combat, as melee combat in AC  has always been a weaker point, but the ship combat is great, the optional collectables are kept a part of main game flow, and there was nothing that really felt too extraneous in the design, which had become a fair problem in recent AC games.  If you're a fan of the series, I'd say this is assuredly worth a look.
