Welcome to the Family
The Industrial Revolution brings an incredible age of invention, transforming the lives of millions with technologies once thought impossible. Not everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of this boom, however. Despite fueling the engine of the British Empire, workers’ lives are little more than legalized slavery while the top few percent profit from their labor.
Living poor and dying young, the lower class unite in protest as a new kind of family emerges: gangs, who turn to a life in the underworld in their struggle to survive...a struggle, until watchful Assassins come to their side.

Rise to rally and lead the underworld to break the corrupt stranglehold on London in a visceral adventure filled with action, intrigue, and brutal combat.
Take Over the London Underworld
With Jacob as the leader, gamers can establish Great Britain’s fiercest gang, the only force that can challenge the elite and defeat rival gangs to bring freedom to the oppressed masses.

London, 1868. The Industrial Revolution unleashes an incredible age of invention, transforming the lives of millions with technologies once thought impossible. Opportunities created during this period have people rushing to London to engage in this new world, a world no longer controlled by kings, emperors, politicians, or religion, but by a new common denominator: money.
Not everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of this boom, however. Despite fueling the engine of the British Empire, workers’ lives are little more than legalized slavery while the top few percent profit from their labor. Living poor and dying young, the lower class unite in protest as a new kind of family, gangs, who turn to a life in the underworld in their struggle to survive. A struggle, until watchful Assassins come to their side and re-ignite an age-old conflict involving London’s leaders that will echo throughout modern history, from the underground up.
Introducing Jacob Frye, who with the help of his twin sister Evie, will change the fate of millions in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Rise to rally and lead the underworld to break the corrupt stranglehold on London in a visceral adventure filled with action, intrigue, and brutal combat.

The other reason was the industrial revolution and the adaption of guns. Black Flag, 3 and Rogue use of guns was great! But that was all flintlock. Now with the industrial revolution and the technology I was very hesitant that guns would ruin Syndicate. I was very wrong. Now there are plenty of Templars with guns and it can get annoying at times trying to beat your way out of a failed sneak, but it's not horrible.
Now the story is pretty good, like all Creeds, and to me it was better than Black Flag, Rogue and Unity. I fell in love with 19th century London. The sneaking is pretty lackluster compared to previous games but isn't anything to complain about. The movement and climbing had been getting better and has been polished up. Unity had problems but syndicate just seemed like I didn't have as many problems with ramdomly jumping or climbing to a spot I had no intention of going to (you will still have problems). With that said it still has its problems, just not nearly as much. With Ubisoft taking the year 2016 off, hopefully they can clean this up even more.
Now my favorite parts were the train to ride around the map, the river Thames in the middle of the city was a nice little district that can be fun to swim or jump across. The rope gun is a fantastic addition to the francise! It is my favorite piece of technology in all the games! It's an amazing new and very fun way to get across the landscape. The game looks beautiful! It really seems like you are in London in 1868 (if I actually knew how that was).
But the best part of this great game is Jacob and Evie Frye. These twins make the story and game one of the best experiences since AC2 and Ezio. They couldn't be more opposite. If you want to just beat your way through, then Jacob is your man. If stealth and planning your attack is your Forte, then Evie is the girl to do it. The story breaks off and uses them both pretty equally. I love beating my way through the gang battles, but I seemed to gravitate towards Evie. Her skill tree is a pure stealth and makes the game so much fun! And Evie just made it a little easier to be stealthy because this game doesn't have much stealth to begin with.
Syndicate has its flaws like most assassins creed games do. However, syndicate just seemed like a breath of fresh air like Black Flag. The positives more than out way the negatives (which are few and far between). Unity made me weary of buying syndicate when it came out and I'm kicking myself for not buying this sooner. This game is for the AC player and for someone who is new to the Creed. This game isn't game of the year quality, but in my mind it deserves five stars, as the last 2 games (Unity and Rogue) only deserved 4 at best.
- The switching between two characters was done exceptionally well, BECAUSE, They have two distinct playing styles and different skills enough to where you COULD play as one character the entire game, but it is way more fun to train them for separate situations (with the coaxing of the game). Evie for stealth, Jacob for blunt-force-trauma. I follow this and I find myself not at all bored with either character like I did with Ezio after the 2nd game of the trilogy.
- They fixed some of the 'buginess' of the free running from the previous games, even thought it feels like it may be MORE frustrating at first. when I jumped in to the game I didn't initially grasp the new 'X' for climbing up 'Square' for down mechanic and I thought 'this is the same stupid issues we've always had, they won't go the way I want, they keep stopping at the edge of building I want to jump down from, etc. but I quickly realized that when I finally got it down the free running became much more realistic and less "dammit I didn't want to jump that way!" that is infamous in the previous games. I have come to appreciate that you can't just spam the run button anymore and leap across the roofs and then fly down the other side a building without any skill on your part. Running across the rooftop and then having to anticipate the climb down and mashing the square button to climb down and then up and then back down and down, across and then down again is WAY more satisfying when escaping for chasing (or frustrating if you miss a button and the character comes to a skidding stop at an edge) than previous games. and with that, jumping across and then Jacob turning and jumping in to the water when he wasn't supposed to is now more your fault than the games.
3) the story and setting are epic (thus far for me). This doesn't just include the awesome rendering of the Victorian London setting along with iconic characters like Dickens and Graham Bell, but the story and characters are relatable and different. they're both assassins but one wants to pursue and fulfill the goals and destiny of the Creed while the other wants the fortune, fame, glory, and power (borderline Templar mindset) which makes you wonder, will they lose interest in the freedom oriented Creed and defect? I mean that's better than any movie and tv story!
4) Simple and strong: this game goes back to the roots of AC1 and 2. No multiplayer, no Black Flag trade routes/ship battles mini-game, no complicated crafting of a 1000 and 1 different materials, and countless other add-ons ubisoft thought would make the games better but ultimately cluttered it all up. they stuck to basics: 1) simple crafting of 4 different materials for either gear upgrades or better weapons and outfits/accessories, that's it. 2) simple 'gang' updates of 3 categories for more income, better gang strength, and weaker enemies. 'bout it. 3) 3 categories for skill updates with a simple metric calculations for achieving skill points and levels. that's it. I could go on but you get the point. simple = better, and allows them to focus on DLC material and small details that make these games much for playable and enjoyable.
5) Is it perfect? no: there's a couple convoluted things but they are few and not game-shattering bad. 1) too many collectibles for far too little return. helix glitches for credits, posters and flowers for historical facts, beers for whatever, it gets tedious collecting all that garbage for nothing more than a few in game credits to upgrade whatever. is it required, no but they throw that in there for the OCD people who want to unclutter the map and get 100% and if you read forums, people are sick of it. treasure chests and couple other collectibles for an exclusive outfit and gear is all we want, thank you. too many of the same weapons, imo. there's 707 knives, 845 canes, and 346 brass knuckles to choose from, half that carry the same stats as the 3 before them and the 2 after. The only reason I can see that Ubisoft did this was for people who want a certain look or style of a particular weapon. I'm on of these people but give me a few selections of each weapon and I'll find one I like, regardless of stats. I've done that with all the other games. eg, AC2 I hated how the topped out dagger looked so I chose the 2nd best, upgraded to max and used it and saved a bunch of $$ on other weapons I could care less about which is what I am doing with Syndicate. I'm gathering free or cheap weapons, regardless of looks until I can level up enough to get the better weapons that I like the look of with good stats and saving thousands of $ in between. in-game app purchase style: can't stand this but everyone is doing. thankfully I am not someone who falls for this and wants to spend real money for in game credit. i'll deal with what I can earn in game and spend my real $$ on the season pass or whatever.
long review but I wanted to share just how good this game is. the hype and ratings are not wrong. Ubisoft got A LOT right after how many games? and I hope they keep going. if you have any questions or discussion, feel free to let me know and/or comment. Cheers.
