I feel so bad for Syndicate. It was a great game, and it had a lighter tone than any AC game since AC II. Unfortunately, nobody gave a crap since it was the follow-up to that shitfest called Unity.

Yeah, I actually really enjoyed Syndicate, probably my 4th favorite game in the series after Origins, 4, and 2. Shame more people didn't give it a chance because Unity had soured the series in their minds.

I'll add another sale once the PC version hits the bargain bin. Ubi games are still often broken at launch on PC.

That's impressive. Sounds like waiting for the extra year didn't hurt. Also, totally deserved, considering how much better the game is.

syndicate sold like crap so nothing surprising there

VGC numbers for Syndicate are above five million, and that's missing all the digital numbers. Doesn't sound like crap to me, which makes this even more impressive: this should sell more than ten million copies at this rate. Of course, it used to be pretty normal for the series...

doesnt matter, its still the same crappy game just with a different skin

Not even close. AC Origins offers the most significant changes to the Assassin's Creed formula since the series started.

Sounds like someone didn't play the game. A lot is still the game, but a lot has also changed.
