Assassin’s Creed Syndicate some review
Bravo!!! Ubisoft Quebec, bravo !!! Gathering “Dream team” at all stages of Ubisoft, authoritatively declare they have created the best of the series. This is on the condition that prior to that, I thought assassin’s creed II one of the best games and jammed it into holes, first on korobokse, and then to the PC. As a result of a brainstorming session, the game came a blast.
Let’s start the tradition with the pros and cons.
+ Plot in this game is awesome, I will not paint too much so as not to spoil the impression. I confine myself to the description of HS. Ladies and gentlemen, Covent Garden is !!! On stage, the twins Jacob and Ivy Frye! (Yes a few SG Greetings from the GTA, as much as much as 3-ri. And who is the third you will find yourself XD)
Characters must say very colorful, act out for them a pleasure. Jacob typical kids, fights in the doorways, noisy gatherings in pubs, is constantly in search of what would entertain themselves. Physically strong – mentally far off. It has long put a bolt on the creed of the Templars hunting for him just another reason to stretch my fists do something unimaginably great in his opinion, but usually incredibly stupid. Think about the consequences, it is certainly not about him. Ivi his sister, smart, beautiful puts stacks of men in the literal and figurative sense, deems creed and continues the work of his deceased father. She always all clearly on the plan, well, at least always when the plan is not creeps unpredictable variable Jacob, then work just added, and then it is necessary to clean up after him.
Minor characters that should be worked out. Abberline Sergeant (By the way otsylochka Sherlock) that only stoitXD oh, this “master of disguise”. So is a lot of historical figures: Charles Dickens, Alexander Graham Bell, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Florence Nightingale, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Queen Victoria, and a couple more that I did not mention. Excellent villains, some of them are even completely frostbitten ala crazy Joker.
But we’re playing AC not only because of the stories of the ancient Assassins, a real plot begins to spin the flywheel animus behind the scenes, and in this part it just reaches its climax and intrigue blows your brain.
Direction and staging scenes of Hollywood-level yes, they can whenever they want.
+ The gameplay has remained virtually invisible to unity. Parkour is still the same top + bottom Freerunning Freerunning, but not without its innovations, the game has mechanical shenbyao. And since the house is now in the game there are tall and the streets are wide enough between them, without it there is not as.
Regarding the combat system, the favorite hardcore ala dark souls halberds, swords, cudgels and spears left the scene. He was replaced by fists, brass knuckles, knives, sticks, firearms and hidden blades. As a result, we have dynamic battles in Batman style. Since I started talking about the fights, the game has a punch club so stretch your fists where there.
In the game there were vehicles, all kinds of carriages, carts, omnibuses, carriages, etc. “And of course, all of them can steal greetings from GTA”. For the first time he saw the Thames my jaw dropped, as water transport in the river, I could not see really at that time London was the capital of the world.
You will now have its own band, with which you will be able to crush the entire town by itself. In every area of the city you will find 4 kinds of jobs will be available, saving children from the factory, killing Templar, the defeat of the gang’s lair, and abduction. After the add will bossfayt with the local leader.
This implies a new RPG game system. Now available to you pumped up to level 10. Naturally the enemies also have levels and then a little surprise level cup-and in this game no. That is, going through negligence in the wrong area, you risk snip off the face, or to get a feather edge.
Now your headquarters is attention! train (I Like Trains – Todd Brayanton). The train must say chic, BU then lived. The economic component remained in place, new clothes need money, so be prepared to nail them.
Before you start playing this game, I suggest you make yourself a cup of English tea.
It is on this thought, I caught myself after the passage of the prologue, he found himself at the heart of England, the era of pearl.
“Who owns the London – he owns the world” – Assasin’s Creed Syndicate
“At a time when nekstgen sly chosen us appetites grow, card sizes increase – somewhere deep in the offices of Ubisoft studios, at night, sitting in the corner, and quietly crying one programmer” – Let’s go pal.
Just specify that I am not a fan, and a series of AC am extremely impersonal,.
And frankly, from a syndicate I did not expect anything good, and if it is quite frankly – then nothing.
I remember how bewildered watched the first trailer. And a little lost with the new transport system. But bias were scattered at the moment when I decided to check out the size of the map, bulging French this year. I was pleasantly surprised.
As a result, we had quite a comfortable fleet of coaches, omnibuses, carts, and others.
The final nail in the coffin of the monotonous movement, and crutch – the already old-assassin – was the hook (popularly hook or rope dart). So what that skomunizdili in Batman. But now I will be able to instill fear into enemies, with even more terrible force. The device turned out uber-useful, saves you time.
The game is well optimized. But what it means in your understanding of “optimized”? Decanter Unity after a little nerf. Resolution textures and lighting level “god” had diminished. But in general, everything looks good. A well-plastered ext. cards shadows, sometimes – even better. Even with SSAO and FXAA picture looks pretty juicy. During the game frame rate has been relatively stable. But in the cut-scenes and close-ups, prominent traditional yubisoftovskie gray up to 25 frames.
We play at the same time for two, switchable protagonists. Jacob and Ivy Frye. The first is more like Moldovans, had only just arrived in the capital (nothing personal). The second very nichegoshnaya simpapulya. For it is pleasant to play. Everyone has their own individual tree perok and their equipment.
Our heroes are sent to live in London. Live … in the train. For full of romance which, as it seemed to me, must be greater interactivity and expanded customization tools. Of course there are already present slots for souvenirs, ironic opportunity to look through the window and much more. But from the banal obvesikov opportunities to put pressure on gazok, play the pipe in the whistle and smile – I would not mind. But in general, the train idea I really liked. I would continue working in this direction.
Interesting (surprisingly) the side-quests, NPC charismatic. Among them you can find: Marx, Darwin, Dikkesona, Queen Victoria, and other well-known personalities. In general, who as I was walking at the time the lessons of history, or involved in these or not those things – I recommend to brew tea and sink into this setting. There’s a uyutnenko.
The work of artists and designers.
The quality of the reconstruction of the city. All very poligon-many.
The transport system, drift on the carriages.
A dynamical system change the time of day and weather.
Ivy and Lydia Fry.
Savage Quantity animation townspeople. Commendable.
System gangs, capturing areas.
The availability of free DLC.
Nerf count of interior / pomeschiny in the city.
Animation capes Ivy, of locked to 30 frames. Give me a manager who is responsible for the final product. I spit in his face.
Mean implementation caches / places for collectables of items (a derivative of the first paragraph).
The lack of multiplayer.
Plot. He is, but sometimes seemed a little ruminant. We need to work more.
AI opponents or dubbing. Sometimes they call for help too loud, so that-be in the future to remain unheard.
Animation and collision of vehicles.
I believe that the game has received its fair evaluation on Metacritic. I am sure that she is better than Unity. And if you nogamez, I can safely recommend.
According to my personal feelings, the game made the setting, beautiful big card.
Assassin’s Creed – Assassins and the Templars
We were the Assassins and the Templars fought with the other sisters, fought against the armies fought with falling airships, ninja, samurai, Crusaders and digital projections. We rode horses and beat the Knights. We sailed on ships and fired at Frege from guns. We arranged very real revolution, giving the country’s independence, and freed slaves. We saw all of the enemy, but now there’s a new. It will be even more insidious, more invisible, a cruel, bloody and invincible. Name it – industrialization.
After a fabulous, sometimes deserved failure of Assassin’s Creed Unity publisher Ubisoft has reflected the direction in which they go on. No, I thought, “let’s stop, dry oars, checked his cards,” not even arise. Assassin’s Creed is not such a series, which can stop. It not only covers the year all possible and impossible publishing losses, but also is the only project with a stable income and produce a profit. Even if the game turns out horrible, it still sold very well, though not as great as those series of games that come to finish.
London is the Capital of Great Britain
Some progress on improving the situation appeared in patches to Unity. They removed the mandatory use of the Internet to get all the treasure chests, polished balance, fixed a control – in general, have tried to make the game even pleased, not only annoying because of the abundance of problems. At this time, the studio Ubisoft Quebec has to finish a new part, and they, frankly, there was not much time to fix everything mistakes made in the Unity, made by another division of Ubisoft. About a dozen studios make three or four big and small game series in parallel with each other, moreover, almost without stopping. If any one is wrong, the wrong everything.
It was therefore decided to rule the very fact that it was done. Firstly, they are headed for optimization. Unity at first not really worked on the PC, on consoles, and to develop a new engine to meet the requirements of next-gen and thus smartly worked time in studios were no longer (and never will). And therefore “Syndicate” was cut in terms of graphics. Many have cried out that it is wrong, but in this case the decision was wise. “Syndicate” is much better than on consoles and on PC requires far fewer resources than the previous part. Yes, it looks worse: some walls are too flat, animation NPC around too wooden, and the shadow of the conditional. But at least it has been running at the start, and not have to wait 2-3 gigs patches to comfortably play.
Second, it was decided to do – is to remove variability. In Unity plot tasks they were constructed in such a way that the player can actually play the role of the French assassin himself decide how to get to the location with the victim – to find the secret passage, to steal the keys, or even to go through the front gate, and under what circumstances to kill – in a cruel fighting, stealing, or to adjust an accident, and, finally, as it escaped – quietly, peacefully or violently carving came to the rescue custody. Forget it, the system was too complex and requires a long time to polish, which have had no studio. Everything returned to normal, now you always show how to get the most convenient location in the small (sometimes so small that the input selection plays no role), and how best to kill the victim. No thinking, just do as you’re told. If you make a mistake, then you will be deprived of a reward after the mission.
The third – the plot. This directly scourge not only the series, but Ubisoft as a whole. Realizing that a story about revenge and inspirational heroes all have, to say the least, zadolbala, Ubisoft has looked at the game that stands out against the background of the line, her name was Assassin’s Creed 4. There has been a protagonist – the pirate, drunk, immoral, but very cute and cheerful type. No revenge, no debt, but yo-ho-ho, rum, wenches, boarding! Arrrrrh!
This Assassin’s Creed 4 changed the “Syndicate”. Revenge, duty, honor, were hidden in a chest and locked in a small flimsy lock, which is sure to break down, but not today. The main characters have become assassins twins, brother and sister, the family Fry, who arrive in Victorian London to make some rustling there. Brother wants to overthrow the rich, to disperse gangs (collecting their own, ha ha) and free London from destroying people’s progress, while sister more global problem – find the next artifact Forerunner. They are young, beautiful, happy and like any young people are not concerned about the consequences of their actions. Ideal characters for another story about the overthrow of the regime, utopias and the fight against corporations.
At the same time the strength and weakness of the local scene. On the one hand, it is necessary to rejoice: no more dull and formulaic stories about how the enemy burnt native hut / killed dad / mom killed. On the other, it is necessary to grab the head of the absolute insanity of the main characters, whose actions almost destroyed the economy of London and the whole of the British Empire. They do not care that thousands, maybe even millions of people will die, and the whole nation will be destroyed forever.
They do this because … Well, because it’s fun. If you do not think about the consequences, it may be fun and you.
I seat myself in a coach, and rush through the smoke and firing
Lessons in Greater London are still numerous: the plot, the capture area, the implementation of side quests, treasure hunt, and of course, collecting collectibles. All of this changed only appearance. Large factories smoked sky, brick, and concrete replacing the steel, huge mechanisms are in constant motion, and it really transforms familiar to players around the world.
And the game has returned transport, but not the horse, as before, or even primitive carts, stagecoaches and the full and passenger carriages. “Syndicate” is now similar to some GTA: flew, threw the driver, sat behind the reins and forth. If you need to bring down their pursuers, then the wagon is a function of lateral ram as in any Wheelman, as well as the opportunity to let the wagon go by yourself, and to climb to the roof to shoot and wave in the melee, as in Just Cause, for example.
And if before you were easier to walk on the roofs to the right place, but now the wagon will become your faithful friends. London is very bumpy and very large city. According to rooftops to the desired point, you can hobble a long time, while the hijacked trucks, you get to it much faster. Well, simply because few people cope with your wagon, until you “behind the wheel”. Horses and carriages literally demolishing everything in its path: lights, poles, people, small structures and other crews. Only through the building except that you can not drive, and so – to any point on the map with the wind and without any restrictions.

Although, it’s over, the old taboos remain. In Unity system was introduced power of enemies, and here she is also there. In each area the enemies of a certain level, which means that more and more dangerous than they are. Consequently, without pre-pumping is better not to go there, where the enemy is much ahead of you in development. Bob is still possible to their skills and characteristics, as well as to buy and improve weapons and melee. If you have gone through Unity, the “Syndicate” for you to leave a few surprises in the gameplay. Here, in fact, only add “cat”, for quick descent and ascent as well as an opportunity to take enemy prisoners.
Now you know all about the gameplay.
London – a great place if you can get out of it
Unfortunately, some troubles have also remained, and I am now about artificial intelligence people. To reduce the load on the game and at the same time fill the city streets with huge crowds, in the previous game came slyly: the population of the full-fledged characters with your pattern of behavior turned into decoration. With them, you can not communicate, they do not respond to what is happening around.
The “Syndicate” went ahead and cut the full brain at all the entire population. With them close just some guy in a hood released intestine three cops? “Good afternoon sir, how are you?”. To him into the carriage, where they went, just some guy threw the corpse, threw the driver and is now rushing through the city? “A good time to see the beautiful London, sir, do not stop.” The “Combine” in general all the people do not care about what is happening around. They forget about what you were doing, after three seconds, you go on the left corpses, buy vegetables from the blood-soaked counters. Idyll right, a city that absolutely do not care about the evil things happening around.
But with the arrival of the twins became a lot more violence in London. Together a gang, the player can hire on the streets of almost anyone and give a completely mad showdown in the style of “Gangs of New York” Scorsese. And it’s not as fun as it may seem. Typical street fights that occur for no reason, and do not carry the obvious targets. In fact, in this regard, the game is not far removed from the very first part of Assassin’s Creed, which could also incite the common people at the guards.
In Assassin’s Creed is largely delineated regression. Assassin’s Creed 4 and Rogue (well, a little AC-3) at least gave a great free world and battle ships. “Syndicate” also brings us back to the days when the only entertainment in the game was a parkour. In general, it does not make it much worse, but, frankly, wanted more.
How about building your own financial and industrial empire? How about assistance in the world of British expansion? Huge opportunities are gone in favor of an unstoppable conveyor Assassin’s Creed. He rushes forward, and he had no time to look around. If problems occur, it is easy to screw the nut instead of layoffs. And if he is still working, it means the players are satisfied with it. Well then, what can be the complaint?
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Final verdict
Great Unity error correction, but the destruction of its merits. To hell with the complexity, history, world, action gameplay, according to the authors, should be chewed, and understandable to the extent that it is time to call them primitive. From game for 2000 rubles, but, personally, I look forward to a very different.
