Video Game Review: The Last Maharaja DLC

March 10, 2016 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
The Last Maharaja DLC
The Last Maharaja introduces a new character but little more.

The final Assassin’s Creed Syndicate DLC is now here with The Last Maharaja. Unlike the previous Jack the Ripper DLC, The Last Maharaja is integrated into the main story following sequence 3. For US$6.99, you’ll get 10 more missions to assist Assassin Duleep Singh (uncle to main story character Henry Green) across… well, pretty much typical Assassin’s Creed stuff.

That’s both good news and bad news. The DLC spans about 3-to-4 hours depending on how you play, and you’re not going to get anything particularly new out of it. You will get, however, 10 pretty fun missions that act as something of a best-of platter for the series. There’s brawling, sneaking, infiltration, chasing, those awful carriage races and, of course, plenty of assassinating.

Even the best Assassin’s Creed missions still suffer from the series’ pitfalls, so cool things like revisiting Syndicate’s bank setting still means that you’ll feel frustrated while trying to sneak around a corner.

No new mechanics, settings or big-picture plot revelations are involved, so it doesn’t feel nearly as unique as the Jack the Ripper DLC. It’s simply another way to spend a few more hours with the Frye siblings. But given Syndicate’s general strength, there’s nothing wrong with that.

OVERALL (3.5/5)

The Last Maharaja offers more of the same except for the introduction of a new side character. For the price, it’s not bad, but it won’t bring anything new to the Assassin’s Creed series.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia

February 18, 2016 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
Outside of the setting, Russia is more of the same of what we’ve seen in China and India. Primary gameplay is set into bite-size sections, and your goal is essentially to get from point A to point B. You’ll be given a score after each section and points earned allow you to purchase minor upgrades.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India

January 29, 2016 | by Mike Chen | Comments (0)
Reach a checkpoint, stealth or fight some guards, pick up some collectibles, repeat. Despite some slightly better level design — including some sections that focus more on parkour — India faces a lot of the same repetitive issues that China faced. Even with nicer production values, the game is still blocked off into small segments of stealth or combat or parkour.

Video Game Review: Jack the Ripper DLC

December 30, 2015 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
The primary missions are mostly well designed, with a few featuring some level of infiltration flexibility. Some of the DLC also has you playing as Jack himself; whether it’s a gimmick to exploit history or a psychological trick to get into the mindset of a murderer, it works effectively thanks to a slightly different GUI and visual elements. This is balanced by Evie’s side quests, which involve finding justice and safety for the prostitutes of London that were the Ripper’s targets.

Video Game Review: The Talos Principle

December 14, 2015 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
The less said about the story, the better. The only thing we’ll really divulge is that things are not necessarily what they seem, and it’s probably the closest a game story has come to classic hard science fiction in a while. Much of this is done through computer terminal access, a la Fallout. If you know rudimentary DOS or Linux commands, you’ll find some of the interface to be familiar.
