Assassin’s Creed Syndicate features man falling over a lot

The new Assassin’s Creed has been praised for its dedication to realism, after players discovered that most of the game involves tripping over things and falling into gutters, because of the debilitating hood.

This has been hailed as a bold departure from previous games, which have seen characters perform amazing feats of derring-do and skullduggery, despite having all the field of vision of a mole wrapped up in a sock and then smashed against a wall till it loses consciousness.

AC obsessive Tim Twanks said “I have always wondered how it is that you are able to scale walls, leap from building to building and carry out kills with deadly accuracy whilst your character’s face is almost completely shrouded by a hood that comes down to his adam’s apple.

“But it seems Ubisoft have finally made it realistic. Admittedly the pace is a lot slower, but at least it’s a game I can finally believe in.”

The main characters Jacob and Evie, also spend a lot of the game trying to find each other whilst bumping into furniture, and occasionally mistaking one another for enemies.

Ubisoft spokesperson Percy Spoke said “We thought the hood was really cool, until all of us  – quite coincidentally – wore the outfit to the office fancy-dress party. We changed our minds quite quickly.

“I have this nagging feeling that actually a real assassin wouldn’t even bother with the hood, but the hood is our whole USP.

“We’ve dug ourselves into this hole, and now we’re just going to have to live with it.”
