The latest Assassin?s Creed game is now available, so should you grab a copy now?

By on

That?s right, Assassin?s Creed: Syndicate is now available and if you are a fan of the franchise, you would have probably purchased it right now. Set in the Industrial Revolution period in London, you will be controlling Jacob and Evie Frye as you navigate around alleys in the Victorian era and fight against the Templars. If you are still hesitated on getting this game, these reviews from major gaming websites might help you reconsider:

IGN 8.2 out of 10

Assassin?s Creed Syndicate is the most fun I?ve had with an Assassin?s game since Black Flag. In fact, I liked it more. Apart from its ill-fitting conclusion, it never takes itself too seriously and delights in the rich possibilities of its Victorian setting and great new grapple gun. As you explore its contrasting boroughs, you glean some sense of what powered this great city in the 19th century. The story missions capitalise on this by exploring different spheres of influence, which when combined with elements like mass transit, heavy industry, and law enforcement, make this feel like a different type of city than has been featured in the series to date. Best of all, Syndicate asks you to take London back in a way puts the last few games to shame.

Polygon 8.5 out of 10

That’s really Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s biggest triumph: It pushes back against the collected cruft of eight years of releases and spinoffs, an imposing accumulation of mechanics and lore and expectations. Syndicate doesn’t get everything right. It doesn’t solve all of the series’ problems, and at this point, I’m not sure if any one game could. However, it’s the first step in a uniformly positive direction that the franchise has taken in years.

Gamespot 9 out of 10

The game is a triumphant return to form for the franchise, and presents a beautifully structured tale with heart and soul to spare. Ziplining through London is thrilling, and the game allows you to organically discover missions and leaves you open-ended solutions lets you to create a meaningful, personal experience within its world. Coupled with strong, loveable leads and a seemingly endless procession of ways to leave your (fictional) mark on London’s history, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is a shining example of gameplay and storytelling.
