Ubisoft goes the extra mile with "The Tyranny of King Washington", and brings us a DLC with personality. The virtues we could see in Assassin's Creed III are maintained and added to those "The Tyranny" possesses, offering a new gameplay within a setting that is both original and appealing.
Assassin's Creed can be so much more and this DLC just shows that it has in fact bigger aspirations. Even though 'The Tyranny' is just a careful step and its first chapter, 'The Infamy', not much more than the lifting of a foot: It still is a step in the right direction. Let's hope the developers have the courage to go all the way.
Players of the third Assassin's Creed will find an interesting extra in this downloadable content.
The Digital Fix
What episode one of the Tyranny storyline allows then is something which brings that which worked before, scales back that which failed and starts a fresh story more immediate than the main one became towards the end. It’s over as quickly as it started and leaves you wanting more - both for the immediate quenching of the tale to hand but also as an opening into the possible futures.

Every episode Connor gains a new power and the first one you'll get your hands on is the power of the wolf. With this power Connor can become invisible or summon a pack of wolves. This means that you will be doing a lot of eavesdropping missions, which are not very entertaining. [March 2013, p.92]
