I tried Syndicate and in traditional Ubisoft formula, they go flashy with the intro, and start feeding me WAY TOO MUCH information about stuff that maybe I am not ready to know yet.
It tells me about the twins, Jacob and Eve and about how they were the best thieves from Industrial era Great Britain.
Then, it jumps to cinematic about them jumping a train and trying to be witty and funny.
(Yeah uhm...no.)
Anyways, I kept playing a bit more.
It told me to sneak to the other side of a plant. So I see there are lots of people working there, including kids (ok going for the shock factor).
I go to the side, and see two guys and a kid working out a huge torque lift.
I go the opposite way and find a woman cleaning and a kid sitting on the floor. None of them seem to be bothered by my presence.
So I am like wtf? I keep walking down the main aisle and nobody raises an eyebrow.
I proceed to get to the opposite side of the plant room and kill the supervisor, which happens to be wearing a red coat.
NO ONE SEEMS TO PANIC.
I am like wtf? why isn't anyone running. Kids are just there staring at my character, cleaning his blade.

I proceed to "escape" the factory through a series of dumbed down parkour animations with the press of two buttons.

It is even more dumbed down than Uncharted platforming. I mean, you only press right trigger with a face button and the character goes around his business defying gravity and being mega fast.

Uhmm....yeah I think I'll proceed to delete this.

Not really going for the shock factor, just being historically accurate.

To be fair, the working conditions in a factory from the time of the Industrial Revolution were very brutal compared to today, so I seriously doubt the factory workers would get upset over you murdering their foreman since he would have been partly responsible for the suffering they would have gone through on a daily basis.

On the contrary, they probably had a huge celebration after you also killed the guy(s) who owned the factory and burned it to the ground even though it meant that they’d have to find jobs elsewhere.

You should have stopped reading at "it tells me..." but you couldn't huh? Your fault.

It's a game that you were never going to play.
You do know saying that you are going to report something is trolling, right?

You should be reported for making a false report. The game's been out since Oct 2015, having long passed the need for a spoiler warning. So far that it's *free on a paid service that is available to you. Had this been the first week/month, I'd agree with you, but 3 years later? Why are you on the internet if you don't want to risk spoiling something you've obviously had no intention of buying?

On topic, Unity was the last straw from me. 3 was terrible, didn't touch 4 because of the terrible sailing from 3, and Unity was the cherry on the s*** sundae. Syndicate looked similar so I wrote off the series for good.
