It's about time we got to play a bad ass female assassin. I like that there are two choices, one for the subtle, one for the “more confrontational” as the game phrases it. I'm a long time player of Assassin's Creed and I think Syndicate fits in nicely with the forerunners. Based in Victorian England, Jacob and Evie Frye are out to defeat Crawford Starrick, the boss of London, and take back the city for the people who built it. London itself is split into boroughs, like the games before, where each zone is part of the progression, but this time there are actual level numbers involved.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is the fourth full game in the hit series. I’m going to be up front here and let you know that I have only played Assassin’s Creed 2 and Assassin’s Creed 3 previously and didn’t finish 3. I went into Black Flag with high expectations, especially given how much fun the naval missions in AC3 were.
