The Assassin’s Creed series had a lot to make up for after last year’s disappointing installment. While Assassin’s Creed Syndicate isn’t revolutionary, it delivers where it counts: it’s downright fun. Over the years, the story of Assassins versus Templars, all the way from the past to the modern day, has become convoluted and hard to follow for everyone but the die-hard fans. For the most part Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is a game focused on the past, spending little time with the modern day plot. In fact you never even have to play in modern times. This allows 19th century London to be at the forefront. With the wonderful job Ubisoft Quebec did assembling this world you’ll be glad to spend your time there.
