Pro Wide range of customization
There are lots of options to customize your character. You can change your weapons and your appearance, down to the individual hood that you prefer to wear. The sheer amount of things you can choose from is pretty impressive, helping you feel like your character is really your own.
Pro You get to play as two protagonists, the twins Jacob and Evie
Jacob and Evie are refreshing to play as, especially since you get to experience the story from both of their perspectives. The twin brother and sister are charismatic and entertaining, giving the story more of a lighter edge compared to some of the past games. They bicker and disagree a lot, but you can tell that they genuinely care about each other. Their playstyles are also quite different, with Jacob favoring a more aggressive, reckless approach, while Evie is stealthier and more strategic. These are all nice design decisions that help Syndicate stand out a little from the rest of the games in the franchise.
Pro Intuitive stealth gameplay
The city of London is beautifully done. The level is massive and dense with detail, with well-designed areas from the era such as towers, open plazas, religious buildings, and recognizable landmarks like Big Ben. You can climb anything, anywhere, and run along the rooftops as much as you want. Scaling the tallest places gives you an amazing bird's eye view of the city and the mountain ranges beyond, along with a vantage point to plan out how to assassinate your targets. The realistic architecture makes Assassin's Creed Syndicate feel like a true period piece set in London during the Industrial Revolution.
