Assassin’s Creed has been a stand out on consoles for years now, but has yet to make the proper transition to iOS. Ubisoft has tried many variations, but each one seems to water down the formula. Now, there’s Assassin’s Creed Identity which delivers a deluxe 3D Assassin’s Creed game on iOS with the full range of movement that the franchise is known for. You can scale buildings, move at your own pace, and of course stealthily take out targets. The best part of Assassin’s Creed is the ability to stalk your target, silently approach, and use your hidden blade to take them out, and now that is possible on iOS.



Assassin’s Creed Identity is set during the Italian Renaissance to offer a side story to what was detailed in Assassin’s Creed II all of those year ago. The game depicts a gorgeous Italian city scape to interact with, and delivers the beautiful 3D craftsmanship with historical details, but now on iOS. The main difference from the console version is essentially the scope, with the iOS version giving you a smaller world, but the same style in that region. It’s great to climb up on top of a church, and behold the entire city on your iOS device. There’s not as much going on in the city on iOS, but you can still fully feel the essence of Assassin’s Creed on the go.

The heart of Assassin’s Creed Identity is the campaign story mode that involves taking out members of the mysterious Crows, mission by mission. The console version gives you a continuous experience with multiple objectives available at the same time for an open world challenge. Assassin’s Creed Identity gives you a single focused mission at a time, so there are still some restrictions on the formula to make it for iOS. With that said, once you’re in a mission, you can go about it however you like. The game isn’t the longest experience with ten missions to play at launch, though there are optional contracts to partake in for additional gameplay. The game does feature some RPG elements allowing you to assign skill points to different abilities of your assassin.



If you compare Assassin’s Creed Identity to any of the Assassin Creed games on consoles, it’s definitely a shorter, more simplified version. The core concepts are present, but in truncated fashion with less happening at once. If you compare Assassin’s Creed Identity to other iOS games, it’s one of the most deluxe experiences out there, and a welcome addition to the platform. Each individual mission has a clear focus with just a few characters in the city beyond your mission. The game goes by relatively quickly, and yet you still get the full enjoyment of running across rooftops, and taking out enemies stealthily. The game isn’t as free flowing when leaping across buildings, or moving precisely from building to building. There are substantial load times in Assassin’s Creed Identity, which is a little discouraging, especially when playing on the go. Through it all, it’s a great experience that stands on its own on iOS to deliver great immersion, and inspire you to play through it in its entirety.



Assassin’s Creed Identity ($4.99, Universal) is one of the most deluxe iOS experience you can play, making it a must have. There are also in-app purchases that have no bearing on your progression through the entire game.
