Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, the opening chapter in a planned trilogy of games, opens a new chapter in the Assassin's Creed story showing that the centuries-long struggle between the orders of the Assassins and the Templars is also a worldwide one. A branch of the Templars known as the Tigers has virtually wiped out the Assassins in China, but not all of them. Assassin Shao Jun, who was away training with Assassin Ezio Auditore of Assassin's Creed II fame at the time of the massacre, returns to China to exact revenge on the Templar leaders behind the Tigers. From an Assassin's Creed standpoint this is a pretty simple revenge story and it's told simply as well, utilizing static hand-drawn images with a voiceover narrative shown between levels to drive the relatively shallow tale along. While that's not all that out of the ordinary for a download-only arcade title, fans of the series may be a little disappointed that the game provides no more than a small footnote to the overall Assassins' legend.
