Preparing for Assassin's Creed Origins, I'm replaying Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

I get that people were tired after Unity, but I think the game is seriously under-rated.

These are my favorite 5 things from Assassin's Creed Syndicate, do any match yours?

Evie - best protagonist since Enzio.

London - does the Victorian city so well.

Really just depends on how you want to play.

Spoilers for the game are below

Sequence 8 assumes that the Rooks have gained a lot of notoriety in the city, and are a significant threat to the Blighters. It's also probably the sequence in which the target has the most personal relationship with the Assassins, so it's pretty dramatic.

For those reasons, a lot of people suggest playing it right where the game seems to suggest it- right between sequences 7 and 9. But ultimately, it's really up to you.

Cheers for the info! I think I will wait until S7 is finished before I do S8 then.

Syndicate is a great game and under rated. 2 protagonists offering a choice of stealth or power. London really does look like London. The statues are exact replicas right down to the plinths upon which they stand. The Thames is that dirty colour and Evie IS a great protagonist.

SofaJockey said "Carriage racing - 19th Century Grand Theft Auto" I love that :D

I enjoy Syndicate a lot. It's one of the best AC games but many people have bias about it just because the pain from Unity (in fact Unity wasn't even that bad)

Jacob-my funny boy-
First mission he said 'And I've got all my need right here', showed his hidden blade.
No plan, no worry like a little boys.
I like it.

I like the game itself ( I would prefer that you could choose one character or the other to play all the way through), Unity was the first game in the series that I ever played and it is what hooked me on the series.

I was gonna come in here and list all the reasons I think Syndicate is lame, but this thread is such a bright spot of positivity in the dark abyss of the Internet that I think I'll just back out slowly and not ruin it :p

I wanted to go play a new game in ACS (PS4) but for some reason i can't seem to get rid of the items I bought in the e store. I bought the crafting plans for gear and no matter what i try i can't seem to get rid of it. I have tried deleting the saved data, profile, and even game itself. All with no luck. If any one has any ideas I am all ears. So please guys any help is very much appreciated.

Further to the World War I mission.

I'd forgotten that it's a decent size (if you collect everything).

Glad Ubisoft didn't carve it off as DLC...

Indeed. It's also proof that a WWI AC (something I've never particularly been a proponent of) could work, if you kept it away from the battlefields.

Also, wandering around London with my posse is fun.

(granted, there has been a bit of inbreeding in gangland London.)

I don't see any inbreeding.... this painting is a portrait of my grandparents and my great uncles :D
