Syndicate

Late Gamer Plays Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

A Review From Hidai Moya

There is nothing necessarily wrong with this game, but after a completionist playthrough, I can see why it is seen as the “Nadir” of the franchise.
It has new gimmicks; a GTA like vehicle system, a Batman-esque grappling gun, & the ability to switch genders anytime are amusing, but they do not amount to much.
This is a very by the numbers AC game without any of franchise’s trademark sex appeal or great original music. The writing is unimaginative & generic & it shoe horns in icons of history like Darwin, Dickens, & Queen Victoria. Industrial London may have changed the world forever, but it does not change the fact that it was an ugly, dull, & bleak place with hardly an ounce of beauty. Traversing cotton mills, smoke stacks, & foundries is not exactly rich historical escapism. I was amused but never amazed.
The Anglophile in me was disappointed.

Grade C+

Bumblebee (2018) captures the magic & wonder that a good Transformers film should have. It is consistently fun & heartfelt with its 80’s aesthetic & nostalgic soundtrack. Watching the War on Cybertron scene gives me hope for what future Transformers movies can be.
