Red-Headed Step Child: Assassins Creed Rogue

Released to little fanfare on last generation consoles this past holiday season, Assassin's Creed Rogue was dwarfed by its bigger louder and broken brother AC:Unity, While Unity was in many ways a step back for the franchise Rogue tread new ground, introducing mechanics borrowed from Far Cry, and melded them seamlessly into the already stellar Black Flag model.

A direct sequel to Black Flag, Rogue spans the period between that title, Unity and Assassin's Creed III. It fills in bits of back story for Connor's supporting cast and ties directly into the setup for the events of Unity. Unlike Unity, which reveals itself to be a literal waste of time, Rogue embraces both the modern day and the past lore of the series and runs with it.
