PS7.99 Silent blast hits China Title: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, PC; GAMES.

ASIA has been an environment untouched by the Assassin's Creed franchise - until now.

But this cut-price spin-off from the acclaimed stealth-action juggernaut is an excellent 2.5D side-scrolling action adventure where we return to youthful assassin Shao Jun's story.

She returns to China hell-bent on retribution, as her story takes players to famous locales including the Maijishan Grottoes, Port of Macau, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China.

Armed with stealth, agility and a combination of deadly weapons and equipment - including a sharp and swift jian, a secret shoe blade, lethal rope darts and daggers - you'll revel in delivering payback to those who decimated the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.

There's a stylish animated style to life in the Far East, where stealth and secret stabbings are the order of the day. You're aided by enemy field of view and noise indicators to point out how much of a racket you make. Of course, you can steam in with your sword, but where's the fun in that? This chapter in Assassin's Creed Chronicles is meant to be enjoyed the strong, silent way, and you'll have an absolute blast for under a tenner.
