I bought Assassin’s Creed Syndicate yesterday, for some reason it was on offer in HMV for £25 so I snapped it up.
I have not previously been a fan of the AC games, I like the idea of the free running but I couldn’t engage with the story lines. Being a mild gamer who usually just plays Forza or Far Cry I struggle to find other games I like. I got Black Flag from Xbox Gold as it was free to members but that was crap, I couldn’t figure out what to do with the boat and I just kept going round in circles being shot at a lot.
I think I’ve had a few hours on it today though as unusually Oliver has accepted that he can ammuse himself with his toys. I’m only 3 levels in but I’m enjoying it and will keep playing it… Until I’m stuck, then I’ll say it’s crap.
It’s worth noting I’m useless on console games and always have been. If I can’t do a game I call it rubish. If I die in a game I get extremely stressed and will not play the game again for fear of dieing. It’s then resigned to a drawer and I kid myself I might play it again one day, so I don’t trade it in and get a decent payout. Instead I wait about 3 years and get 50p for it.
We shall see.
