Then there are the Jack sections... just horrific. Not in that "Oh, that's messed up" way but in a "oh, for ****'s sake this is terribly done crap" kind of way. He plods around being a completely unnecessary counterpoint ("Oh! He works a lot like our gal Evie") and it still yells at you for not killing civilians. Nice add on, not totally successful... Just like most of Syndicate.
Good to see another gamer. I really enjoyed AC2, Brotherhood, Revelations and Black Flag. The others not so much. What little i played of Syndicate when I got it from redbox for a weekend was alright, way better than Unity which was a mess. Supposedly ubisoft is not going to release an AC game this year and will take some tome to try and revamp the series. It needs it.
