Assassin's Creed: Syndicate Review

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is back and set in London, based on the lives of two twins, Jacob and Evie Frye as they fight against the established order, controlled by the Templars.

It's a fantastic game, although does have a few issues with will likely need patched. We think of it as GTA V with horse and carts, as you push and pull drivers off their transport and manoeuvre through the streets of London. It's a real sight to behold and is backed up by the in-game action, with new weapons, parkour and a serious amount of upgrade and menu options.

There is so much to talk about the game that we even forgot to mention that the ability to hide and carry bodies is back, as is the ability to kidnap enemies and throw them into carriages to earn your reward. Taking back the streets of London has never been so much fun.  

It's a game we highly recommend as you'll see in our review below, although we also talk about those issues that we encountered too.

I like that the review is a video and your points above are spoiler free :) that way I've seen nothing :) - btw, don't forget the 10 ps4 exclusive missions, get to solve 10 real life crimes - probably like the investigations in unity I bet. Shame to hear it's buggy, but as long as it isn't game breaking then I'm fine with that. Planning on activating the YouTube stream and just playing through too the end in one sitting tomorrow :) hoping it's about 20/25 hours like unity was for me before the clean up process :)

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
