The protagonist are twin assassin's named Jacob & Evie Frye. You can change between them at any point of the game but most of the missions in the campaign are reserved for Jacob. The characters are well written and the interaction between the two is filled with sibling rivalry. There a ton of side missions and most of them are repetitive which becomes boring very soon. You get to meet the queen and do some missions for her which are fun. The combat is almost identical to Unity. The campaign is good as it shows how deep the corruption is that the Templars have a stronghold in every part of London from science, politics, finance to transportation. You kill the high profile templars but leave the position unfilled which just creates a vacuum of power. The new addition is the grapple gun which you can use to glide across the city or climb the towers quickly. Horses are removed and carriages have taken their place in the game. The build-up was pumping the game until the ending which is disappointing.

Conclusion:


Overall, Syndicate is a great Action-adventure game! It offers the best Open world experience of 1868 London. The side quest with historical persons is quite interesting, which helps you appreciate their unique disposition. Combat gameplay is quite normal. The main story is a bummer, as it doesn't quite leave a mark. 7.7/10

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is about what we’ve come to expect from the annual franchise. Ubisoft Quebec has built a beautiful new world to explore but relies on many of the same ideas from previous games to keep players interested. Fans of the series will certainly have plenty to sink their teeth into in terms of side missions, as well as another meaty Assassins vs. Templars main storyline.
Paul SullivanOct 25, 2015
At the end of the day, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is a fantastic game trapped inside an archaic one. Throughout my play I had the sense that Ubisoft desperately needs to scrap old code and take a fresh approach with this franchise. The story and characters in Syndicate are too good to deserve being dragged down by the game’s core circa 2009.

The final boss fight lets you swap back and forth between Evie and Jacob during the battle, a fine idea—but the fight itself is unimaginative and unrewarding, designed to be difficult above all else. Like diving into a pile of leaves from the top of Big Ben, the first time is a thrill, the fifth is a yawn. Assassin's Creed: Syndicate's new toys entertain for a while but the novelty ends hours before the game does.
