Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate puts our assassins into a beautifully rendered Victorian London setting. This time, the story takes players to notable historical figures within London. Take control of either Evie or Jacob in ruling the shadows as players can be immersed into an even more focused and cohesive adventure than other Assassin’s Creed games.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is This Year’s Assassin’s Creed Game
Once you start a new game, or have seen the trailers, you would immediately feel the massiveness and beauty that is the Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate world. The visuals are indeed a rise above other stigmas. The Victorian England settings do not fall short of anything but exquisite. Players will even be able to visit familiar locations in ways that unlike the norms. For example, once you can get it in the view of your character, you would immediately notice that familiar clock tower found in London – Big Ben. Instead of just walking in and going behind the clock’s face, why not scale the walls of the landmark instead? Do it, and you won’t be disappointed.
Another great thing about the new Assassin’s Creed game is that players should learn specific skill trees by both characters independently. Unlike other games like Grand Theft Auto V wherein you would just carry out every single mission throughout the game, switch characters, and be able to do it all over again (maybe even nonchalantly), in Syndicate, both characters have their own unique fighting styles. Therefore, this adds to the versatility when playing through the videogame.
Like with many other games, leveling up in Syndicate plays a major role. Else, you won’t get access to newer skills. However, if you’re the hardcore gamer then you can try to keep your levels to a minimum and traverse through the game without a lot of your character’s skills.
Apart from those that are good, Assassin’s Creed, and other Ubisoft games, are also known for one other thing – graphical glitches and there are a lot of those in this game. You will see flying bowler hats, enemies getting punched to oblivion, and warping bodies like they look like something out of a deranged horror movie.
With Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, it still brings the beauty of silently killing your enemies and now it brings players to a great story line in Victorian London. However, it kind of still feels like any other Assassin’s Creed game and core gamers are found to be getting tired of this pace.
