The Late Gamer Plays Assassin’s Creed – Syndicate: Jack The Ripper

A Review By Hidai Moya

Marginally better than the main game, this DLC has a more interesting plot with an improved sense of urgency than Syndicate’s original story.
With Jacob Frye gone missing, & Jack the Ripper on a murder spree, Evie Frye must find her brother & uncover the identity of one of histories most famous killers.

New combat mechanics are introduced in the form of fear gas, Indian impalement spikes, & brass rings which you can beat your opponent to a pulp with. The new fear system allows you to scare off multiple opponents as they witness you impaling one of their comrades. It’s a welcome change to Syndicates bland combat. Surprisingly you also get to play as Jack the Ripper himself too in a couple of sequences.
Although I wasn’t as satisfied with the end of the story, it is definitely a step up from Syndicate’s uninspired campaign.
Grade B-
