ASSASSIN’S CREED ROGUE REMASTERED ***
Xbox One / 360
In 2014, the first version of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue was released as an upgrade from the
original game. I had somewhat low expectations of this second version but was pleasantly
surprised with the increased visual quality, especially concerning the surrounding environment.
The increased range of weapons adds dimensions to the game that it somewhat lacked before.
The perspective of an assassin-turned-templar is a storyline unique to Rogue and allows you
to play as the antihero, keeping the original story but adding a compelling twist. (RdH)
CIVILIZATION VI: RISE AND FALL EXPANSION ****
PC, Steam, Apple Store
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Rise And Fall expansion seeks to add a more intricate and deeper
strategy game experience and largely it does just that. The new flavorful Civs and their leaders
are welcome additions despite the slight power creep. It’s the new game mechanics which
make Rise And Fall an expansion to sink tens of hours into Civilization VI all over again. City
loyalty, history timeline, great ages, emergencies and alliances make for entirely unique games
with more dynamic personal stories, despite still having some issues with AI. JY
