[Game] Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

Assassin Creed Syndicate

Game

The first Assassin’s Creed that I actually felt functioned like a proper sandbox, probably due to the added driving sections and actually interesting side missions.

I was a bit worried that 19th century London might have been a bit too modern for this game series, but with likable characters and missions that finally make you feel like an assassin, Syndicate has proven to be among my favorite AC games together with AC2 and Black Flag.

Positive:
Negative:
Breathtaking visuals
Still lots of sections in the city that feel empty game-play wise
A huge city with lots of historical locations to explore
Clunky, overly simplistic combat
Cool, historical, vintage atmosphere
The grappling hook, while making navigation smoother, makes most other climbing mechanics obsolete
Likable, quirky, if not particularly profound characters
Stealth actually functions and is pretty fun
Assassination missions finally make you feel somewhat like an assassin
Awesome climbing mechanics, as always
