I finally got my hands on AC: Syndicate*, and it seems okay so far. At least compared to some other games I bought lately, including Unity, Tropico 5 or TESO, for example. I didn't liked it from the start, but bought it in a sale with -60% just to try and it seems I was quite true about it. It couldn't be farther from Skyrim (or Gothic) games, I only played LOTRO before, but that was oldschool gamer's heaven in comparison to this.. and at least it kept player motivated, since there were still some sales or updates going on.. but here you go to the city and all you see is a market stand with content and upgrade seller among crazy graphics with no right angles, where 20 houses means really huge city and it's ruled by king, who doesn't care he has bandits just outside his city gates (and inside mostly as well, so they wait for your - some unknown guy's - advice)! Potato world par excellence.. Nothing interesting to do at all here. And If you do - save some 'king' for example - you get few coins which is some 1/5 of the cheapest piece of equipment part in game. Definitely crazy..
*Industrial London is interesting even as only a scenery with not that much options. Not as much as Dunwall or Bowerstone, though. But I think it perfectly shows way for future KCD acts - If they could make Paris and London, warhorse could do Prague or Vienna as well. With better story (like in Dishonored) and options to change the game world (like in Fable 3) it's a perfect way ahead imho..
