Colm Ahern: "Apart from a decent brawl on top of a train, the rest of my time with Syndicate was very familiar. Go into an area and deal with a few baddies, then free members of your own gang, The Rooks, for example. And look, that’s what people have come to expect from the hooded blade-wielders. When you’re releasing yearly installments, it’s very difficult to yearn for more. It’s well made, looks quite nice, plays decently, and I’m sure Londoners will scour the streets of this virtual world looking for where their local cinema is now, but Syndicate, for all intents and purposes, is an Assassin’s Creed game. Make of that what you will."
