    Well, you're wrong. It features all the stuff endemic to the themes of Assassins vs. Templars. Revolution, freedom vs. control. It was basically a huge breaking point from autocracy to liberal democracy which is exactly what Assassins vs. Templars is about. It involved war, spying, assassinations. No shortage of material for conspiracy theories either. Ripe for Ass Creed. So....

    I'm a HUGE Revolutionary war period history buff so I am really looking forward to playing 3. Not that I expect accuracy from it...I just really look forward to playing a game set during this period. I know the game play has been bashed on this one....but I think I'll get enough out of the setting to enjoy it.

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.

    I finished Super Mario Run (not sure if it counts here).

    Still have most of the black special coins to pick up though. Pretty awesome. I hadn't played a Mario game in literally decades.

    PS. Syndicate is great and it was unfortunate that many skipped it due to fatigue/Unity.

    Lots of fun platforming and shooting. Story was pretty standard and the voice acting was mostly lacking. But that platforming made it great. Haven't touched the mp at all and not sure I will.

    Well, Ass Creed Syndicate definitely has a lot of cool stuff going on. A mobile train HQ? Too cool. Arbitrary zip lines? Sweet-ass.

    However, they still can't quite get all their gameplay to jell together. The side missions sometimes work great and sometimes break in frustrating ways (not that they're hard, but I want to do them really well, not just kill everyone when it all goes bad due to some glitch or failure of the engine).
