Scale new heights in London with this syndicate of assassins.

There is no doubt that the Assassin’s Creed series is a popular one with both consumers and Ubisoft. There have been 9 Assassin’s Creed titles in 7 years, with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate being the latest. Do the critic scores suggest a break is needed to freshen up the series? Or does having it based in London freshen the series up? Check out these selected reviews below:

IGN: 82

“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.”

GameSpot: 90

“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.”

Digital Spy: 80

“Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is an acrobatic lunge in the right direction for the series. It’s a more stable offering than Unity ever was with engaging protagonists, a monster of a city to get lost in, and some shrewd tweaks to the time-tested formula.”

VideoGamer: 50

“Syndicate is a compulsive game, and in places a fine one. When it is good, when the AI is behaving and it’s running well, it’s very good. But Syndicate is so adept at self-sabotage that it’s nearly impossible to enjoy this world, this game. It constantly rips you out of the experience, whether that be from frustration at the mechanics or outright bugginess.”

Games Radar: 80

“Combining both traditional and new Creed stories with its dual narrative, Syndicate not only manages to deliver a cohesive and satisfying tale but it does so within one of the finest settings the series has ever seen.”

As you can see, apart from the folks at VideoGamer, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate seems to have gone down very well indeed with the press. Have you gotten your hands on Assassin’s Creed Syndicate? Why not let us know down below.
