4. London (Assassin’s Creed Syndicate)
And Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s 19th century London sure is a sprawling playground for you to get lost in, and taking control of carriages in the streets GTA-style was also a fun addition to the game. There’s also the usual climbing to the top of big monuments like the Big Ben Tower, and some nice, sandbox-style assassination missions with an emphasis on stealth. The combat is a notch above Unity as well.
The Assassin’s Creed formula was starting to wear a bit thin at this point, however, and the story is nothing we haven’t seen before. But Syndicate’s still a solid game all the same, and one of the best Assassin’s Creed games to have come out in the last couple of years.
Why we loved Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s London: Victorian London is the biggest and most detailed city in an Assassin’s Creed game to date, no doubt. Sailing across the Thames is a relaxing diversion, while travelling through the busy streets on a carriage lets you admire the likes of Big Ben too.
