There's only a tenuous connection to Assassin's Creed III, its sweeping console counterpart. That shouldn't deter die-hard Creed fans from embodying heroine Aveline, who's armed with iconic hidden blades just like forerunners Altair and Ezio, as well as her own original weapons, such as a blowgun and a parasol loaded with poison darts. Unlike her male predecessors, Aveline assumes different personas to achieve her aims. She can use all weapons and scale buildings; disguised as a slave, she can blend in with crowds and incite riots; and when dressed as a noble lady, she can awkwardly woo men.

RATING M for Mature

PLOT You're an assassin in New Orleans after the French and Indian War
