GameFront: "The Redemption itself ends on a ho-hum note and, while it occasionally can be a fun time, it never reaches the point of being exceptional or even especially compelling. And looking back, neither does The Tyranny of King Washington. It’s an expansion back that was bursting with potential, but which winds up being mired in the doldrums of weak storytelling. The Tyranny takes no risks, and it becomes hard to be all that enthusiastic about it. Animal powers and George Washington making his “angry” face aren’t really worth the $30 asking price, or really, the six- to eight-hour time commitment — unless you’re some kind of huge Assassin’s Creed fan. The rest of us won’t gain much from the experience except a lighter wallet."
