A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

Players must be patient, careful if they want to survive, complete their missions, which sometimes include murder.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Though they're trained assassins, players are trying to get revenge for their fallen comrades, protect their friends, save a princess.

Ease of Play

Though complicated, with somewhat awkward combat, controls somewhat familiar to fans of similar games, easily picked up by those who've never played anything like this before.

Violence

Players kill enemies by snapping necks, slicing them with swords, impaling them by throwing knives, with the latter two actions being rather bloody. Players can also chose to not kill, for which they're slightly rewarded, and the bloody is somewhat tempered by watercolor-esque visuals.

Sex
Language

A character uses the word "s--t."

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Assassin's Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack is a violent and bloody downloadable action game, though all three games are somewhat tempered by the game's two-dimensional, side-scrolling perspective and minimalist graphics, as well as the option to not kill every enemy. Consisting of three games -- China, India, and Russia -- it has players using stealth and murder to complete their goals. One character utters the word "s--t." Though it's easy to pick up the controls, combat can sometimes be awkward, potentially frustrating players.

Kind of violent but not to bad it's better than the rest of the series

What's it about?

The ASSASSIN'S CREED CHRONICLES TRILOGY PACK consists of three games with separate stories, though there are some small links between them. In China, Shao Jun must get revenge on those who wiped out her fellow assassins. In India, Arbaaz Mir has to steal a mysterious object, while in Russia, Nikolai Orelov has to steal an artifact as his last mission for the Assassin Order. All three also fit into the larger Assassin's Creed mythos.

Is it any good?

Like similar games that have attempted to turn three-dimensional, open-world adventures into two-dimensional, side-scrolling action games, the three games in this collection have their moments but not enough of them. The real issue is that they try to be so many things to so many people but don't quite pull it off. While there are times when the sneaking around gets rather clever, especially in the later games, it's never as deep or inventive as in a regular Assassin's Creed game. Conversely, there are so many stealthy parts that these games don't feel action-packed, especially since, like a regular Assassin's installment, it has somewhat awkward combat controls. It also doesn't help that, for a series so driven by story, the stories in these three games feel more like throwaway side quests rather than anything that adds to the saga in a meaningful way. Still, if you're a fan of this series who appreciates two-dimensional action games, these three games will keep you entertained. Well, until a real side-scrolling Assassin's Creed comes along.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about violence in games such as Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Trilogy Pack. Is the violence in this game acceptable because of the watercolor presentation and 2-D visuals, or does the focus on assassination and killing enemies go too far? Does the option for nonviolence change your opinion about the game's content?

  • Talk about history. This game is set in 1526, 1841, and 1918. Which historic events happened around those times?

  • Discuss being careful. Why is it important to sometimes take your time and be cautious?
