Assassin’s Creed® Syndicate

Assassin’s Creed® Syndicate

Taking place closest in history to us, the game takes place in Victorian England following the Frye twins and their goal of taking back control of London from Templar hands, following the assassination of Edward Kenway years earlier. Having a unique opportunity to play as two different people, switching from one to another in a matter of a second, the game gives us two different perspectives from the same side, one that abides by the Creed and follows in her father’s footsteps focusing on the Piece of Eden, and the other swaying away from his sister’s goal to take matters into his brawling hands by forming a gang to take down Templar lieutenants, crippling their control. Gang members act in the similar way as Assassin recruits did in some previous games, helping protagonists in a more direct way rather than from the shadows.

A bit on the shorter side probably due to my 100% only if it seems fun approach. I love London as a city irl anyways and seeing all the places in ac-style was as awesome as it gets. The story is pretty light weight and after the first few missions you can go to pretty much the whole map. Some features from brotherhood I kinda missed and you look always so classy. Never really figured out how to do the multi finishers tho and refuse to learn it after completing all story missions and all side missions at least once

Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry

Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry

This review is for those who actually have played Assassins Creed Black Flag. If you do not have it I suggest you buy it at a sale because the main game will be cheaper than the dlc since the price is only slightly higher but the overall content is more aswell.

I own Assassins Creed on XBox 360 and the game simply is breathtaking with the easy to learn gameplay, the open world features and the good and atmospheric music. The story however was a little short and Freedom Cry as a dlc is of course even shorter. Most players suggest an average gametime of only 4-6 hours. However it took me about 20 Hours to discover all the places unlock everything and tried the minigames like fishing. (They are the same as in Black Flag though)

The very first mission of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s story DLC Freedom Cry is not only its finest, it’s also an excellent summary of what made the original game good. We’re tasked with retrieving a package from a Templar admiral aboard his ship. To do this we either board the ship, kill the admiral, and take the package or sink the ship and then dive into the wreckage and retrieve the goods. Giving the player options is what the franchise is supposedly all about, so it’s a shame that the rest of it fails to live up to any of what made Black Flag fun.

Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: India

Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: India

Thumbs up because it’s a nice enough game (the stealth parts are good fun, it has nice art, alright music and the voice acting isn’t too bad although not too remarkable either) and to counter the probably numerous reviewers who tend to bash Ubisoft titles only because of Uplay.

Still it probably could’ve been better. It feels a little short, the ending came rather abruptly, and maybe half of the levels - sometimes in direct succession - are timed-based with you having little freedom in your approaches but encouraging to kill guards to get through them quickly as possible, as they are only rated by your speed and not by how many sightings, alerts or kills you’ve had (or not) as is the case with the stealthy levels. This is rather a downside because if people have ever asked for stealth elements that feel rewarding and fun it’s the Chronicles games that of any AC titles have them (Chronicles: China had such time-based levels too, but they didn’t feel like taking up as much space as they do in Chronicles: India). Oddly enough there are even parts where you are mostly forced (!) to snipe enemies down with a rifle, sometimes semi-silently, but still in a rather easy and cheaply feeling manner.

Okay, let’s begin with some basic stuff. You can only say that you think this game is good or bad. You can also compare it to China, but that’s all. You cannot compare it to other Assassin’s Creed games, like Unity. It’s a different type of game, 2.5D, so there is no meanful comparison to first person ACs.

Now, if you liked China, you’ll definitely like this one (unless you only like female assassins). I can see improvement to many areas: artwork is even more outstanding, graphics look better as well as the colours, cities feel more alive and the whole environment gives more options and space to discover. There is also a map. In addition, you can now change control buttons (huge problem with China). As for the rest, story is good, creativity is needed, movement in depth looks amazing.

Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: Russia

Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: Russia

I REALLY hoped that I would enjoy at least one of the Chronicles titles…but alas, to no avail as this fails quite miserably as well.

It actually started off quite promisingly. What Ubisoft mucked up in terms of story in the previous two (especially India) they did quite well here. this was the first story in Chronicles I felt invested in. The MC’s motivations as a family man and a father’s overprotectiveness work well to explain his motivations, the posession by shao Jun provided a nice touch and until the end you really didn’t know where it would go. Well, not like it did go somewhere that brilliant but it was a decent setup at least.

Real player with 26.0 hrs in game

Wow! What an awesome game. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia unfortunately is the last series in the trilogy chronicle series where you play two characters Nicolai Orelov and Anastasia. In Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia you can use a telephone in one room can distract a guard in another or shooting out breaker boxes which shortens (but doesn’t eliminate) enemies field of vision. I love the environments (from nondescript buildings to blood-strewn laboratories and actual moving train, trams and boats) which makes the adventure even more involved, giving you the opportunity to really use your ever-changing surroundings to your advantage. The story, the gameplay, graphics and sounds are all of the highest caliber.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

The fact that they released an old game in this state is absolutely ridiculous and inexcusable.

  • Partial controller support for a game that doesn’t support kb+m despite the fact that it could work (you need workarounds in order to play with Dualshock 4 for gods sake).

  • Constant crashing during load screens. You know that lovely feeling of doing side stuff for hours only to have the game crash on you and removing all your progress because autosave isn’t a thing? Outstanding.

  • No options whatsoever. Wow look, you can toggle fullscreen on or off, so advanced.

Aaaaand that’s the next game all done! What an experience this game was. Let’s begin with the review:

Soooo…once again, I’m glad I gave these games a chance and I’m glad that I bought both of these instead of just one, definitely got a more fuller experience with them. So, where do I stand on this game?


While I don’t think this game is narratively better than the first game, The assassins in this game don’t feel like real people at times and more or less just feel like ‘oh, just another bad guy for Travis to fight to get to the top, I guess.’ It’s kind of jarring going from a game that had characters with some levels of depth to them and you could almost feel their struggles up until they died to a sequel where only a few of the assassins actually feel like they’re properly fleshed, and one of those few is just a character from the first game brought back from the dead that Travis himself doesn’t even get to face, with that character being ‘New Destroyman’, instead Shinobu fights him (or rather them since there’s two now and it’s kind of an annoying fight, ngl.) The story is….worse than the first game and while it has it’s good moments in it as well like Henry fighting an anime mecha girl, Shinobu making her moves on Travis which is uhhh…kind of funny and kind of weird at the same time considering the fans who probably DID ship them got slapped in the face and those who didn’t were probably just thinking ‘Yeah, that seems about right’, and Travis and Sylvia having more banter (which was some of my favorite moments in the first game and this one since we got to see the two interact more here and form a sort of…screwed up bond), overall, the story is just…okay, not as good as the first game’s but not god-awful either…Jasper is a really crappy character, though, ngl, he’s comic-book as heck and he really only just made Travis get out of retirement because of him killing Greg/Bishop…who barely mattered before in the games asides from him fetching your bike on NMH1 and running the shop in both games. It’s just kind of sad we didn’t get a better story considering how amazingly improved everything else was.

Welcome to the Garden of Madness, Sudabros…

tldr; the game is great, but the port is not


The non-technical part of this port is still good, even after 14 years, the game has it’s charm. The heart and soul of the game is still here (except “Heavenly Star” is absent, but you can mod it back in), but the technical side of this port - OH THE TECHNICAL SIDE..

As you could see, most of the reviews here talk about the lack of controller support (KB+M is not an option;

! and why would you even want to play it on KB+M? ) - the game only supports XBOX360 controller, BUT DS4Windows works just fine for me.

Real player with 25.6 hrs in game

Yes. But not yet.

the game works really well, but there’s some bugs that need fixing.

Here’s some stuff nobody else is saying:

  • A bunch of achievements are broken, specifically those that have progression tracking. The counting doesn’t work properly. Those who have the achievement “Dial M for Massacre” are using SAM… for shame guys.

  • There’s some particular segments in the game where you need to hit a target at the right time but the timing is extremely finicky if not completely broken. Luckily they are all optional, but some are tied to a certain achievement. It’s not impossible per se, but I sure avoided them like the plague.

Assassin’s Creed® Origins

Assassin’s Creed® Origins

Simply put, AC Origins is a fantastic title that does an excellent job giving players an in-depth view into both Greco-Roman and Old to New Kingdom Egypt. The strength of the story line comes on the back of the great voice acting and story arc of the protagonist, Bayek of Siwa.

Exploring the ancient temples and pyramids across Egypt was an amazing adventure, and the new Discovery Tours feature is fantastic as you can now immerse yourself in a guide history tour of Ancient Egypt! No wonder university professors have been using it as a learning tool recently. With minimal bugs, great graphics, a solid story line with an amazing protagonist who rivals Ezio, AC Origins is a strong entry into the franchise.

I played this after AC Odyssey, expecting it to be a carbon copy in sepia tones and I gotta say it’s not. I despised AC Odyssey and while this game isn’t perfect either, it is a vast improvement (which is funny considering it was released first). The story is unique and tragic, and most importantly makes sense as an origin story for the creed.

Because there is no level scaling, you can finally feel like you’re making progress, while at the same time still requiring you to use a strategy. You can’t just hulk smash every enemy. Stealth matters here and there is no better feeling than taking out an entire stronghold without being detected. You are an assassin after all, which, yes, means you finally have a hidden blade again. Treasure it, keep it close, don’t let it drift away.

Assassin’s Creed® Rogue

Assassin’s Creed® Rogue

The same year, when AC Unity was released, Ubisoft gave us another Assassin’s Creed game. Rogue completes the North-American Trilogy with AC III and AC IV, and turns as well into the story of Unity.

When you start playing Rogue you could have the feeling to play Black Flag in another setting. It is located during the Seven Years War, and the character we play is Shay Patrick Cormac, a young assassin who is still learning , but also questioning if everything the assassins teach him is the truth. After he was sent on a special mission and made fatefull experience, he decides to leave the Brotherhood of Assassins and finds after that his way to the Order of the Templars. This is the first AC game in which we play a templar most of the time during the story. There aren’t any historical persons, but many other ones you already know from AC III, AC IV and Unity as well.

Did you think Black Flag was the utmost heights that Pirate vs. Ninja combat could climb to? Were you under the (foolish) impression that Ubisoft(in the head) couldn’t further refine the ship combat introduced in AC3 and then perfected in Black Flag? Did you skip this game thinking it’s just ANOTHER reskin of Black Flag?

If you answered yes to any of these questions - then you are REALLY missing out.

The first thing most players say about Rogue is that it’s shorter than Black Flag. That isn’t quite true - Black Flag was a sweeping epic spread out across several years; all leading up to AC3. Rogue is more self-contained and (dare I say it?) streamlined than Black Flag. Take a couple of weeks off from playing Black Flag - you’re likely to forget the story when you start it up again. Rogue is all-involving. The plot is a lot more personal. It does something that no other AC game has done before… and shows the story from the BAD GUY point of view. Not only that, but it does it in a way that makes YOUR character a good guy (well, as good as a guy can be when he’s a member of a top secret murder cult) while still ticking all the bad guy tropes. Best of all, it actually SHOWS the good guys (again, murder cult) the heroes - as villains without MAKING them villains. This whole story - by and large - is a series of misunderstandings. Arrogance. Mistakes and one man (the main character) trying to clean up afterwards.

Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: China Review

The fight continues…

Some key points that this game offers:

  1. Stunning 2.5D gameplay mechanics

  2. Multiple planes to navigate on

  3. A new and unique arsenal at your disposal

Gameplay & Controls:

The standard layout is advised against. The way the controls are configured for Mouse and Keyboard users is not the greatest. Fortunately, you have the means to change the button loadout to a more comfortable experience. Playing with a controller works just as well if that is your preferred method.

The last mysterious Assassin’s Creed

There is no way I won’t recommend China, it is a great AC experience for those who care about the first two games, despise its flaws. Ezio trained Shao Jun, the most stylish assassin since Altair, performing graceful stunts to kill and then vanishing like a ghost, including a feet-dagger. It is no easy task to go classic, back again as it was in the past, the game is pseudo 3D side-scrolling that looks like Chronicles of Sub-Zero. It isn’t less complex than a full third person 3D game and can find its place on best AC games, maybe its just not enough for the setting. What really caught my attention the main character has the best voice acting on any AC to date and it is a waste to see that character squandered away with just a single game.
