Assassin's Creed Chronicles takes all the sneaky action of the main series and transposes it to a two (and a half) dimensional setting. It should certainly bring out warm, nostalgic feelings in Prince of Persia fans, with gorgeous backdrops and smooth platforming action.

While there's a combat element to the game, stealth is definitely the order of the day. Despite players only being able to move in one and a bit directions, there's plenty of scope for staying away from the prying eyes of enemies and bringing careful strategy to bear, as well as lightning-reflexes and ace parkour skills!

This boxed edition is really three games in one, with a narrative thread that runs right through them all.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China takes players to the year 1526, just as the Ming dynasty begins to crumble. You play as Shao Jun, the last assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, returning to China with training by the legendary Ezio Auditore and a vendetta to pursue...

The India episode moves things forward to 1841 and the tension between the Sikh Empire and the British owned East India Company. A Master Templar arrives with a mysterious item that used to be in the possession of the Assassin Order, and it's down to Arbaaz Mir to discover why and steal back the item.

Finally, the Russia episode is set in 1918 amidst the rise of communism. Assassin Nikolaï Orelov must infiltrate the house where the Tsar's family is being held by the Bolsheviks and steal an artifact that the Assassins and Templars have been fighting over for centuries...
