    Assassin's Creed Syndicate works like a charm on the PC. The game looks and feels great. There is lots of content available and those who love the franchise will love Syndicate. Syndicate is a very solid PC release and a must-have for any fan.

    Really fun, with an extraordinary atmosphere, to please the fans and engage new to the franchise, much more polished than Unity, Ubisoft moves on right direction again.

    Syndicate is not only a very interesting Assassin’s Creed experience, is also a polished sandbox and it has some interesting new gameplay features.

    Ubisoft did a much better job with Syndicate than with the PC version of Unity. The promise to keep a closer eye on quality control of future Assassin's Creed games has been mostly kept. Still, Syndicate on PC could benefit from additional code optimization. If you don't own a console and enjoy this universe you should be happy with this version.

    It’s a solid entry in a series that’s been far too prolific, and while Syndicate is good, it’s tough to be excited about it.

    The aging Assassin’s Creed franchise begs to be retooled and refreshed, and the paint-by-the-numbers Syndicate is yet more proof of that.

    In the end, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is a far more competent entry than the much maligned Unity, but it does not entirely restore faith in the aging franchise.

    After the global failure of Unity, which was scolded literally for everything, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate looks like an honest game: theAfter the global failure of Unity, which was scolded literally for everything, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate looks like an honest game: the developers in the trailers showed a real level of graphics, not their imaginations; the game could be tried on dozens of events organized by Ubisoft around the world; the game does not load with annoyed conversations about the honor and morals of both orders, does not reflect on the higher goals pursued by the Assassins and the Templars. In general, the authors have done everything possible to restore confidence in the series. And they did it. Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is a race in Victorian London. The British capital of the times of industrial revolution meets tirelessly milling factories, Big Ben, buzzing locomotives, food-barges roaming the Thames, social stratification and exploitation of child labor. While the elite of the society drinks elite tea from the elite service, wears a smeared mustache and dresses in fashionable costumes, London's dirty lanes are filled with homeless people begging alms in the corners and hellish factories where children work day and night. All areas of the city - from public transport to industry - are controlled by Hanglers, a group of Templars, organized by villain Crawford Starrick. The main characters of the game, the young twins-assassins Jacob and Ivi Fry (in the open world can freely switch between characters), go to London to put their order there and at the same time to find a piece of Eden. To cope with this duet of Fry will help their adventurism, youthful enthusiasm and sense of humor: brother and sister willingly exchange mockery, and this animates history. Jacob arrives in London and delves into the heart of the matter, boldly declares: "Why do not we set up our gang and attack the Villagers?" Having caught Ivy's dubious look (say, how do we do it, did we just come to London?), Jacob resolutely undertakes. As a result, Fry gathers his gang: meet the new players in the London showdown - Rooks. In Assassin's Creed: Syndicate much is done correctly. Here, for example, much better intertwined in the general narrative of historical personalities: Jacob will meet Charles Dickens, Karl Marx and other important personalities. Each has a whole story arc - it's not Assassin's Creed Unity for you, where Napoleon was given a pathetic one and a half cat-scene.

    The authors actively juggle with situations: here in one of the first scenes Syndicate cites an episode with a train from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - right up to camera angles; Here Ivy plays the right melody on the piano to open the secret entrance; in another scene, Jacob and Ivi participate in a shootout on the crews debuting in the series. In Syndicate, you can steal any city vehicle (hello, Grand Theft Auto!) And quickly drive it to the right place, and also ram the enemy transport carriages, in parallel sweeping the lampposts and trees.

    However, a more interesting innovation in the mechanics of Syndicate was the harpoon (yes, almost like the Dark Knight). Thanks to him you can quickly break away from the pursuers, instantly throwing himself at the top of the nearest building. It actively has to be used during a secret passage - the harpoon allows you to instantly change position and save time. Previously, you had to climb for a long time and run from one building to another, and now - once or twice, and you are already shooting the sentry on the next roof. And yes: in Assassin's Creed for once, a fascinating stealth appeared.

I know that ubi downgraded the graphics, but it still one of the best looking games. and the optimization is not bad. It's quite good if you just forget about nvidia gameworks. with pcss and hbao+ ultra off I managed to run this game with a gtx 980 on average of 70~80fps. now let's talk about the gameplay. now I don't really dig deep in to stories in game so I'll pass
    that.
    the mechanics of the game has changed a bit. the combat is much for faster and rhythmical and feels good. bugs that happens during combat has been decreased to.
    the side missions which is about taking back London from the blighters, might feel repetitive but still fun to play. the main assassination missions are pretty big, and also very fun.
    oh yeah and the rope launcher. it's great.
    overall. not a masterpiece. but decent.

    the worst thing about the game is that doesn't encourage me to continue the game or play it

    Very disappointed, exactly the same like Unity, but in London
    The bugs are still here and the characters are so poor. The control are very bad and very imprecise, when you run, some time you go down but you just like stop . And the "b" button near a border, it's horrible to do what you want to do. And the "grapnel" is very horrible, you can't use it in running mode, it's so imprecise you have a very little chance to arrive where you want (if you can do, but a lottery ticket)
    I don't speak to the "organisation", we don't know why it's here, why you, how did you arrive in this act
    I received it via a gift, hopefully, I don't spend my money on this version.
    Don't waste your money and return to the unity, it's just a "London DLC", beautiful DLC, but nothing new
    I make 3 for the graphic work, not for the story and for the "innovations"

No way to turn off annoying "Go Here" indicators, no thought at all demanded from the player, just press X to AWESOME! Whoever designed the user interface should be put to death.

    Awful game and the paid (or just idiotic) reviewers are the worst. Last AC game I will play, nothing will come close the marvel that was AC2 and the rough diamond of AC1.
