Today marks the release of Assassins Creed: Syndicate, this will shock nobody; yet might still excite some. Ubisoft have managed to release a yearly iteration of the flagship Assassins Creed franchise every year consecutively since 2009's Assassins Creed 2. This is no small feat considering a lot of companies find it hard to release games year on year, only a few yearly instalments are successful, two of the biggest being Call of Duty and FIFA.
When Assassins Creed 3 rolled around fatigue had really started to settle in and I was not excited any more. Revelations had left an anti-climax of the Ezio's storyline and had left me feeling bored of the series. So when I played 3 I found Connor to be a 2 dimensional boring character who had nowhere near the depth and complexity of his father Hathem Kenway.
The series reprisal had to be Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag (this opinion is not shared by all) where the pirates life was the way forward. Black flag was special because it was a pirate game that was not Assassins Creed till the very last kick of the ball.
