I'm a fan of Assassin's Creed, but I had very little interest in Rogue, and the AC games have been on and off, hit and miss kind of games as of the most recent. For me (though I am not the biggest fan of the first AC, where I think it's fair, nothing more and nothing less overall), starting with Assassin's Creed 3, I felt it was a mediocre, bordering on being a poor game. Black Flag was superb to me, although contrary to popular opinion, I appreciated the minimal additions and improvements to the on-foot gameplay, minus the overly simplistic combat system, and was actually not a fan of the ship stuff. Unity was a mixed bag, but overall mediocre as well in my opinion. Syndicate, not being as good as Black flag to me, so not nearly as good as the Ezio trilogy either, I still liked. That's my feeling on the games. Right now I feel I can give some time to a game I may have not otherwise played, be it Rogue or another game, but since I see it's backward compatible on the 360 I am a little more interested. Can anyone recommend it? What did you think of it, or did you even play it? At the time of its release, I didn't want to play two AC games in one year, and I also didn't want to buy last-gen games on older hardware anymore. How is the plot, the characters, the gameplay, the sound design, the atmosphere/environments and what have you? Was it better than Unity which came out the same year?
