I’m Kinglink, and it’s time for the Humble Choice April 2021 Review.
This month I’ve played each game for one hour over three nights on stream, and we’ll talk more about that at the end, but it’s given me a chance to find out what each game is about and if I can recommend it. There are 13 titles, so let’s just dive straight in. Starting with…
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts. This feels like a mixture between Sniper Elite, Metal Gear Solid 5, and Hitman, and that mix is pretty good. It has extremely detailed bullet physics and large open world designs for its mission areas.
Assassin’s Creed has gone through a lot of changes over the year, but one of the last traditional Assassin’s Creed was Assassin’s Creed Rogue, which came out at the same time as Assassin’s Creed Unity. Rogue was a follow up to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, that was left on the previous generation of consoles while Unity attempted to wow audiences. Both games were released in the same year, and it certainly shows.
It’s not that the team helming Assassin’s Creed Rogue didn’t try, in fact, I would say Assassin’s Creed Rogue’s team may have actually had the most chance to create something special and meaningful and in some ways have. However, the fact that this was created at the same time as Assassin’s Creed Unity, meant that there was always going to be a primary team and a secondary team, and it’s very clear that Assassin’s Creed Rogue being on the previous generation consoles was always going to be it.
