Leaving the French revolution, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate brought players to London in the 18th century – the most modern city in Europe at that time. Like the previous versions, you play a descendant of an assassin lineage experiencing the memories of twins Jacob and Evie Frye thanks to modern technologies. The plot of the game appears to be quite balanced between two modern timelines and the past, while also revealing new details revolving around the eternal confrontation between the two organizations, Assassin Order and Templar.
However, most of the time you will still adventure in the city of London with a dreamlike appearance but rot inside because of the manipulation of greedy capitalists, especially Crawford Starrick – the main enemy of the two brothers. Frye brothers. In their journey, Evie and Jacob will have the opportunity to meet and associate with many other NPCs, both fiction and real celebrities in history – an element that has become a trademark of the Assassin’s Creed line. It must be said that Ubisoft has done a great job in voiceover and facial expression to bring witty conversations and express the personality of each character.
The Frye sisters are portrayed with opposing personalities. If Jacob often fell into bad situations and cried because of his awkward personality, his sister Evie was the wise type who thought thoroughly about all situations before acting. Except for some special missions that require you to control one of the two, most activities allow you to choose your favorite character.
If the tasks for Jacob often quickly lead to fights, explosions and jubilance full of chaos, with Evie, the game tends to be more covert action. Even the skill set of each character clearly reflects this when Evie can equip twice as many assassin daggers as Jacob, and possesses useful skills that help her disappear completely from the view of The enemy stood still. On the contrary, Jacob deals strong damage with melee attacks, and his ability to withstand attacks is much better than his “soft limbs”.
Of course gamers can still freely act the way they want, but at least we can see the efforts of the Ubisoft development team in bringing diversity to the gameplay of Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate.
