My review of Assassin’s Creed Rogue was the very first post on my old website. And here it is again on my new website! I’ve tweaked a few things but this is mostly what I said way back in Sept 2015. My style has changed A LOT since then (read: I’m way more wordy these days) but it’s always nice to see your writing style evolve over time, right?
I picked up my copy of this game on launch day, but it almost took a year for me to get around to finishing all my goals for the game. I was once a huge Assassin’s Creed fan but fell out of the series after I beat Unity (hopefully I’ll catch up someday). In Rogue, being on the Templar side of the fight gave me a new perspective on their organization, which was neat. Before playing through this game I always felt that the Templars were unquestionably the “bad” guys. After getting to know Shay and his new friends, both sides seem to be operating in a grey area on the morality scale. Now I’ll let past me do her review rambling. Enjoy!
