When last we encountered Connor and his alternate nemesis George Washington in "The Betrayal" DLC, it ended up being a pretty good pack of content. "The Redemption" sends us into Part 3 of the 3 Episode series, and in my opinion is equal to, if not better than "The Infamy" and "The Betrayal" in every way. For those who read my review on "The Infamy" and/or "The Betrayal" I'll follow the same review structure as I did then. For those who have yet to play "The Infamy" or "The Betrayal", watch out for the Story section, read at your own risk, as it contains spoilers from "The Infamy" and "The Betrayal".


"The Redemption" thrusts Connor and his allies into New York, the heart of Washington's empire. He is to find and acquire the aid of Thomas Jefferson in attempting to overthrow the mad tyrant. With Washington's lieutenants Benedict Arnold and Israel Putnam dead, Washington stands alone and must be brought down. Overall the story for this DLC provided an exciting and really excellent finale. Those who do not quite understand the ending should replay Infamy and Betrayal and acquire the "Lucid Memory Artifacts" and do so in Redemption as well, as the cutscenes lead up to the ending of Redemption, and the DLC as a whole.


The gameplay in this piece of DLC is on par with that of Betrayal. Hardly any glitches and functions just like the rest of Assassin's Creed III (patched, of course). Just as in Boston, your notoriety is permanently at Level 1, so upon sight of you, guards will come to investigate. You still retain your Wolf power and Eagle power, the latter of which is still incredibly useful when navigating New York, as you can easily evade the countless guards out to get you. Redemption introduces Bear power, where at the cost of about 1/4 to 1/3 of your health, unleashes a small shockwave that instantly kills any enemies in the radius of it. Useful in a pinch, but only then. Freely using it leads to low health, which doesn't regenerate very fast during combat. Side Missions make a return yet again, starving citizens, attacking convoys, defending citizens and rescuing them. The optional objectives for these memories are rather balanced. Some require little skill, some require a lot.


As with Betrayal, the 3 achievements are based on story completion, full synchronization and using your new animal power. As with the previous two episodes, when you find a side mission, complete it, go some distance away (made easier by Eagle power) then return to find the objective has respawned and can be completed again.


Why the price for this is 640 instead of 800 confuses me, as this episode has as much content as Betrayal and Infamy, just set in a different location with different events taking place. The story was very well told and the finale was great, and the DLC was genuinely fun to play through. As a DLC, I feel it deserves a 5. All in all for The Tyranny of King Washington as a whole, 4.5/5, mainly for how poorly executed The Infamy was.
