ASSASSIN’S CREED: SYNDICATE
Developer/publisher Ubisoft (Quebec)
Format PC, PS4, Xbox One
Ubisoft has always played fast and loose with the accuracy of its historical simulations, but we assumed the reviewer’s guide was having us on. Apparently not. Should you find yourself in pursuit of a Victorian miscreant, a tap of the left trigger while driving a carriage will allow you to turn down the narrowest thoroughfare while hardly losing speed. You’ll believe a horse can drift.
