Assassin's Creed Syndicate

I have been a die hard Assassin's Creed fan since Ezio's story. And I have been on the edge of my seat for the last few years since Desmond's demise. Assassin's Creed is my all time favorite game series and story. I love it more than Halos story, more than Skyrim or Far Cry or any other game with a haunting, stay-with-you storyline. Assassin's Creed has always been the games I've put on a pedistool. But these were just, games, in my opinion. The story of Jacob and Evie is good, but not startling and gripping like other characters. The game itself was kind of monochromatic. I understand that the Industrial Revolution streets of London weren't the most colorful and that's why there are so many hues of brown, but I still found it a bit droll. The missions to gain control of the cities felt like work to me, instead of fun. I beat the game 100% none the less, but I definitely didn't have as much fun as I did when killing redcoats or sailing the seas. I just held this game to a high standard based on how extremely good the games before it are. I will not be replaying this game like I did the other Assassin's Creeds. I am less than patiently waiting for the addition of Origins, which has to be better than this game. It wasn't bad by any means, it just wasn't as exceptional as the other games in this series.
In this game you're introduced to the Frye twins, Evie and Jacob. They're polar opposites with Jacob more interesting in starting a Victorian street gang than doing his actual job as an Assassin. Evie's more serious but with her own goofy side. You're able to switch back and forth between them for the free roaming portions of the game and pretty much most of the side quests. The main quests themselves are divided up between the two of them. Jacob's all about beating some heads in while Evie's a master of stealth.
The game is enjoyable. The plot is interesting and the setting in Victorian London is just beautiful. All the side characters are rich and interesting. I never thought I'd want to see Alexander Graham Bell and Charles Darwin fighting crime together but now I really do because of how interesting and vivid they were in the game.
Black Flag was interesting but a bit dull. Unity was an absolute boring mess. But Syndicate is amazing.
I guess female's aren't that hard to animate after all. And they make good characters in a game.
