Okay for teens

I unlocked the 100% sinc achievement/Trophy in this game. So I will try to make a review based on my gameplay experience of more than 100 hours: Good things in the game: - This game is set in the American Revolution and I believe that it is a great tool for learning more about this historic period of our country. - The map of the 18th century cities and the frontier around them is very detailed and full of activities, and many of those don't involve violence. - The main character, Connor, is from a native american tribe and he is very respectful towards nature and even his enemies. Bad things about the game: - Even with all this positive aspects, the main purpose of the game is to kill, the character is an assassin. In most of the game you can chose to use stealth or non lethal methods, but in some moments you will have to kill other NPC's (blood can be turned off). - Although this game is set in a history period, the events are highly dramatised and fictionalized. Some DLC purposely alter history. But remember this: it's just a game.
