Assassin's Creed is a game series from Ubisoft, in which science fiction and history are mixed. In the simulated past of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the player takes on the role of Evie and Jacob Frye in the times of the industrial revolution. By chance, the two siblings learn that a "piece of Eden" is hidden in London. In an open game world, the players are allowed to climb walls as they please, to fulfill orders or search for collectibles. The main missions are often about killing a human target. Also, there is a unique feature in each part of the series. While in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flagships could be steered; there are horse-drawn carriages in this part. Ships and boats are on the Thames, but cannot be driven. Assassin's Creed always walks a fine line between fact and fiction. The truth is that the game features famous personalities of their time, such as Darwin, Marx, and Bell. Social problems, such as child labor, are also addressed in the game. But fiction is that Darwin is chasing after legendary figures in London or that horse-drawn carriages can race through lanterns without scratching. For younger players, it could lead to a mixture of reality and fiction, because the border between the two "realities" is quite fluid in the game. While the predecessors of the game tried to create a world in grey areas, the current title is divided into black and white or good and evil. The Templars are evil, and the female and male Assassins are good. The division is clearly defined. A reflection on what happened is not intended here. So it is conveyed that every action is justified as long as a goal is achieved. Few improvements and many problems make Assassin's Creed: Syndicate an Assassin's Creed in minimum form. Fans who want to have played every game of the Assassin's Creed series should watch it and enjoy the little rays of hope. With the fan glasses on, the mistakes of the game should not weigh too heavily. Newcomers should first watch the other games of the series.
