Stealth aficionados will rejoice at the challenge Chronicles: India dishes out. The pacing does get skewed by the increasingly challenging puzzles and the game often becomes a victim of relying on time-sensitive areas. That being said, Chronicles is beautiful, fun and delivers excellent combat fluidity. Overall, this is a solid platformer that highlights a new chapter in the Assassin’s Creed universe, taking us to a unique setting and providing a well needed challenge that will test the very limits of our patience.

In terms of presentation, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India remedies the stiff sense of joylessness that pervades Chronicles: China by injecting more color and personality wherever it seemed possible. That renewed energy only makes it more disappointing that the generally well-designed missions have given way to the artifice of cheap-feeling instant deaths

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India is a disappointment. Outside of the gorgeous, painted art style, it has few redeeming features. The frenzied pacing of levels turned away the stealth enthusiast in me, and the unreliable controls left me miserable during the time trials.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India learned from the missteps of its predecessor, as gameplay is more varied and its colorful, vibrant levels are both pleasing to the eye and fun to interact with in most cases. Open combat is to be avoided at all costs, however, limiting how you play the game—and some of the puzzle-platforming levels drag in term of pacing.

If you played the previous Chronicles installment and enjoyed it, or you are a die hard Assassin’s Creed fan, you will most likely get some enjoyment out of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India as well. However, I would not recommend this game to anyone but those people. With the bland foreground graphics in what could've been a beautiful setting, poor performance and repetitive gameplay, only the most serious of fans should be looking out to add this one to their collection.

For the mainline Assassin's Creed games, the history and characters are the bones holding the gameplay upright. For the Chronicles series, the curiosities presented by the setting act as a thin veneer that only momentarily distracts from the flaws beneath. Like Arbaaz himself, these great moments have a bad habit of vanishing into thin air when you least want them to, bit there is still a lot of fun to be had in this Indian adventure.
Ashley ReedJan 11, 2016
The beautiful landscapes of India and a promising sense of movement aren't enough to save Chronicles India from hamstrung combat and tedious stealth. Close, but missed the ledge.
Chris CarterJan 12, 2016
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India, isn't a whole lot different compared to China, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on your prior experience. It sports a slightly less interesting character and setting, but the core experience is replicated, and the addition of a few gameplay tweaks as well as the aforementioned challenge mode ensures that it's on the level.

A good second stab for Ubisoft's latest spin-off series, India makes up for what it lacks in excitement with visual flare.

Assassin’s Creed couldn’t afford another step in the wrong direction, and yet, here we are again. ACC: Russia is still a few weeks away, but Climax will seriously need to re-evaluate its core systems and mechanics to give it a chance to succeed. Chronicles was a leap of faith for Ubisoft; this time there isn’t a bail of hay there to break the fall.
Bengt LemneJan 13, 2016
Assassin's Creed fans would likely have wanted a game with more story and exploration (a 2.5D Metroidvania style AC would be brilliant), but what we're left with here is a stealth platformer that's decent yet fails to really reach any true heights in any particular area. Simply put it's mediocre, and we're not sure we can stomach a third game of this sort in a month's time or so, even if Russia is a setting that excites us.
Ken BarnesJan 13, 2016
If you liked Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, then there's a decent chance that you'll have a good time in India, in spite of the problems outlined above. There's enjoyment to be had, but the main worry is that almost everything new that has been thrown in is flawed to the point of not being a worthy addition. With the Russian entry just around the corner, we're hoping that this is a missed step in the journey, rather than an inevitable and unalterable course.
Lee BradleyJan 11, 2016
An improvement on its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India is a more varied game that at it’s best, is pretty damn good. But a handful of poor choices and underdeveloped ideas hold it back.
Álvaro CastellanoJan 12, 2016
Chronicles India repite muchos de los errores, y también de los aciertos, de la entrega ambientada en China. Y si bien es cierto que pierde parte del factor sorpresa de aquel, también es verdad que mejora en elementos como el desafío, el ritmo o el control. Si buscas un juego en 2D con plataformas, aventuras y acción al más puro estilo del brillante Mark of the Ninja aquí tienes una opción que quizá no sea tan espectacular pero que te puede deparar unas cuantas horas de entretenimiento bello y desafiante.
Martín IraolaJan 14, 2016
Assassin's Creed Chronicles India aporta unas secuencias de sigilo más trabajadas y divertidas que su predecesor, y el acabado visual de India es convincente por la cantidad de detalles y color que transmiten los escenarios. Pero ambas virtudes acaban siendo insuficientes en el cómputo global para un juego que adolece de los mismos errores que se vieron en la primera entrega de esta trilogía
Mathias OertelJan 13, 2016
Dieser zweite Teil der Chronicles-Trilogie zeigt, dass innerhalb dieser Auskopplung spielerische Fortschritte noch rarer sind als in der Hauptserie der Assassinen. Auf den ersten Blick gibt es einen stilistischen Wechsel innerhalb des sehr gelungenen Artdesigns, das jetzt auf bunte Farben und verschnörkelte Strukturen setzt. Erst auf den zweiten Blick erkennt man die leicht angepassten Fähigkeiten, die aber unter dem Strich nicht markant genug sind.
Florian VelterJan 20, 2016
Assassin's Creed Chronicles China avait le bénéfice de sa relative fraîcheur. Ce deuxième volet ne l'a plus. Et il n'apporte quasiment rien de nouveau à la recette déjà mise en place l'année dernière. On se retrouve donc face à un clone qui n'a même pas la bonne idée de raconter une histoire intéressante. Un clone qui fort logiquement reproduit les défauts de son prédécesseur.
KaarajJan 16, 2016
Sans surprise, Assassin's Creed Chronicles : India ne bouleverse en rien ce que proposait l'expérience China, s'appuyant sur les mêmes mécanismes en changeant simplement le décor et le contexte proposé. On notera toutefois une hausse de la difficulté qui a tendance à souligner le dirigisme du level design, bien plus que son aîné en tout cas, ainsi que l'arrivée de nouvelles séquences toutefois disséminées avec parcimonie.
Julien HubertFeb 02, 2016
Assassin's Creed Chronicles India est très similaire à l'épisode précédent en Chine, il a plus ou moins les mêmes qualités et les même défauts, mais il reste un petit jeu d'action/infiltration vu de côté assez sympa à jouer, avec une bonne atmosphère, quelques bonnes idées et un challenge assez intéressant. Espérons que "Russia" saura aller un peu plus loin tout de même, car l'ensemble reste un petit peu fade face aux canons du genre.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India riprende tutto quanto di buono visto nel primo capitolo, a suo modo sorprendente. Aggiunge qualche nuova meccanica che non stravolge l'esperienza di gioco, ma così facendo perde anche un po' in eleganza e pulizia. Qualche piccolo problema tecnico poteva essere evitato.
Aligi ComandiniJan 11, 2016
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India è un degno seguito del piacevole China, in grado di migliorare la formula grazie a un aumento del livello di sfida e a un level design più sopraffino, ma al contempo incapace di risultare "migliore" del predecessore per un attaccamento eccessivo alle sue meccaniche di gioco. Se cercate un gradevole passatempo e amate il marchio numero uno di Ubisoft, dategli una possibilità.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India умеет подать себя и привносит яркие краски в те составляющие, которые были серыми и безжизненными в предшественнице. В этом смысле она настолько жизнерадостная, насколько только уместно в рамках сеттинга. Но на этом фоне ещё сильнее бросается в глаза то, что продуманный дизайн уровней уступил место каким-то неумелым поделкам, регулярно приводящим к нелепым смертям героя.
Максим ИвановJan 15, 2016
В выпуске про Китай Climax придумывала интересные игровые ситуации, а в этой части разработчики будто смирились и забили: проследите за противником, пока тот будет двигаться через десяток охранников (если вас заметят, миссия провалена), продеритесь сквозь миллион стражников, чтобы найти офицерскую одежду – мундир, головной убор, пояс... В какой-то момент ACC: India вообще уходит в петлю и начинает повторять саму себя, что тоже веселья не добавляет.
Ersin KılıçJan 25, 2016
Sonuç olarak hali hazırda ana serinin dinamiklerinden bile sıkılan oyuncuları tatmin etmeyebilir ya da bir süre sonra sıkabilir ama platform türünü ve AC serisinin hayranıysanız Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India'ya göz atmanızda fayda var. Oyunun dinamiklerinde aksayan taraflar olsa da genel itibari ile sunmak istediğini oyuncuya yansıtabiliyor.

Al met al is Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India een game geworden met veel opties in de gameplay, waar helaas weinig vernieuwing in zit ten opzichte van Assassin's Creed Chronicles China. Daarentegen heeft de game een grote herspeelbaarheid door het puntensysteem en hogere moeilijkheidsgraden. Hierdoor is de game ook uitdagend om te spelen, maar schiet het af en toe door naar frustratie.
Jonas MäkiJan 21, 2016
Om du verkligen gillar denna typ av spel, så är det hygglig valuta för pengarna. Det tar ändå runt fem timmar att ta sig igenom äventyret. Men jag har svårt att se vilka som egentligen ska vara publiken. Jag älskar Metroidvania-spel, men det är inte vad jag får här. De som gillar Assassin's Creed i allmänhet lär sakna bristen på story och det känns överlag för medelmåttigt.
