Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Review

    Assassin’s Creed Syndicate follows the Frye twins, one wanting to build up a gang and the other trying to do things the right way. Here is our Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Review.

    The game was developed by Ubisoft Québec and published by Ubisoft, it was originally released on October 23, 2015, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    Assassin’s Creed Syndicate feels like what Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was to Assassin’s Creed 2, it’s kinda the same as the previous one, Unity in this case, but makes it just so much better both in story and gameplay that it’s a must play. In the case of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, it even feels a bit like a Hidden Gem at times due to how many people wrote the series off around the time of its release.

    The story is set during the Industrial Revolution, a setting that at first doesn’t seem that great, but it actually does. Its setting in London is just perfect from the city itself, but also the number of historical figures are actually in the game, there is Queen Victoria of course, Charles Darwin, Alexander Graham Bell, Karl Marx, Charles Dickens, and some others, the majority are all incorporated into the main story and they all also have their own set of side-stories that you can play as well.

    During the main story, you will not start in London but will travel there in secret to liberate London from the grasp of the Templars that they have had for 100 years. You will slowly take down each member by cripling the things they need to take care of for its leader Starrick, but not everything is what it seems with each member so it doesn’t really feel like you are doing the same thing over and over again with the same intentions. There are tailing missions again, and they are a bit more than Assassin’s Creed Unity, but there aren’t many either way, and dont feel annoying this time around.

    The story is just well written and doesn’t feel like it drags on while also doubling the amount of missions that Unity had. Starrick is a good villain that you see throughout the whole game and you know he is the threat, that makes the goal you are working for a lot more worth it. You know everything that the Templars do in this game and you do it for London, not just some random personal reason, it feels much more like an actual Assassin doing things for the good and for the Brotherhood instead of just doing your own thing that few games before this one had.

    In terms of gameplay, nothing much has changed compared to Unity other than giving you a grappling hook, and that addition made the game feel a lot better and faster, not just that, the free-running itself also seemed to be perfected from how it was in Unity. Everything just feels good, there is nothing really that felt annoying or that worked against you, unlike some other games in the franchise where some of the mechanics just seem to work against you.

    The map is a perfect size, it’s not so big that you get annoyed with travel but also isn’t small enough to keep seeing the same 3 landmarks over and over again. It also is a game that visually aged pretty well, nothing really stands out but some of the cutscenes are just perfect. Sadly, some of the city does feel a bit more limited compared to Unity, I just loved how open everything was with the houses, and while you can go inside a lot of the houses, you will need to climb in it and nothing is really “open” in the sense you can just run through a house. But they did add carriages, so that is a very nice addition instead and the city feels just lived in and full of live.
