London is officially ours. (Meaning, we've finished playing Assassin's Creed Syndicate.) The results: We have nothing but good things to say about this latest edition in the series! Ubisoft has put the Assassin's Creed franchise back in our hearts and has us anticipating next year's release already. If you have yet to play the game for yourself, you may want to greatly consider it...
Here's The 10 Reasons Why We LOVE Assassin's Creed Syndicate!
10) Crippling Control Never Felt This Good
Those in control are so evil, greedy, and rich with power that taking them all down is going to become your number one goal in life. It'll surely be exciting for you watching the map slowly become yours after each mission's success. Prepare to make the Rooks the best gang ever in order to take back London!
9) Dodging Bullets Is Easy!
It was just the worst feeling ever in past entries when you got shot in the back and fell to your death while scaling a building. Syndicate makes dodging bullets a breeze with a simple quick-time-event!
8) The Children
These little beggars will soon become your greatest allies. Any time they need to be freed from the factories holding them captive, we'll be right there to liberate them!
7) Dreadful Crimes
Don't worry, you won't just be murdering people the whole game, you'll be solving murders too! Dreadful Crimes cases will have you resolving mysteries by interrogating suspects, finding clues, reaching new heights, and hopefully nabbing the right culprit.
6) Train Rides
Train rides? More like thrill rides! You've been warned, fight scenes atop these carriers can get pretty intense as enemies chase your way and the wind whips past your body. And when these things wreck, well... look the heck out!
5) London's Gorgeous
The puddles, trees, streetlamps, civilians, buildings, and bridges make this the best looking location for assassination so far. Take a trip to one of the local parks to see just how beautiful this game truly is!
4) Grand Theft Carriage
There's no more satisfying feeling in this game than hijacking someone's horse after chucking them out and galloping full speed away, whips cracking away! We also much enjoy throwing local punks in the back of them.
3) Grappling Hook
Where was this thing in past titles? We don't know, but hopefully we don't see another title without it. Climbing buildings by hand is so outdated. Thank you Alexander Graham Bell for fixing this gadget for us.
2) Jacob Frye
Jacob, Evie's younger twin by just four minutes, is witty, charming, and packs a heck of a punch. When Jacob sets his mind on something, he's going to get it. Your best bet is to stay out of his way or else you'll have his whole gang to answer to.
1) Evie Frye
In the end, it's the protagonists that make Syndicate shine. We prefer Evie because the only thing truly sharper than her sword is her mind. She's a master of stealth and sure knows how to beat people with a cane. Wherever Assassin's Creed goes in the future, we hope these two return for some more fun!
