12. Imperial China- Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China
One of the most wanted settings for fans of the Assassin’s Creed series has been ancient China or Japan. With all of the mystery, war, and violence in those eras it seems like a perfect fit. Unfortunately, our first trip with the series into China wasn’t exactly what was expected. This first entry of the Chronicles trilogy took place in 1526 China, and focused on the female assassin Shao Jun, who was actually trained by Ezio Auditore.
China does take you to some iconic locations like The Forbidden Palace and Great Wall, but unfortunately there wasn’t a whole lot to be seen otherwise. The interaction with the country’s history was minimal, and the 2D platformer was focused more on its gameplay rather than taking full advantage of the intriguing setting.
