Assassin’s Creed Rogue Review (PS3)

Assassin’s Creed Rogue received very little attention when it was released last year, and for good reason.

It also didn’t help that Rogue’s gameplay seemed like nothing more than a rehash of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, whereas Unity was adding several new innovations to the series formula.

The most controversial being two spinoff titles released after the third installment on the PS3 titled All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault which strayed far away from the series roots, and felt more like generic co op games . Responding to the criticisms about both titles Insomniac Games, the developers of the franchise announced a new Ratchet and Clank title a year later that was supposed to bring the series back to its roots. I along with many other fans were excited as well as relieved to hear they were bringing the franchise back to form. So, does Into the Nexus live up to the previous installments as promised?
