Assassin's Creed: Syndicate - Jack the RipperOverview -
The 'Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate' season pass includes the 'Jack the Ripper' expansion, which centers on the notorious 20th-century murderer. It’s not standalone, but does constitute its own campaign.
'Jack the Ripper' looks a lot like 'Syndicate,' with a few different models and animations. Jack’s missions have a distorted filter meant to suggest psychosis, and the character himself has a scarecrow-like model. Evie definitely looks like an older woman, but not necessarily like an older Evie. Her face is too different, as though they used another actress for the likeness.
Not much to report on the audio end, although the sound effects from the new fear gadgets are sufficiently impressive. Jack is voiced quite intimidatingly by Scottish actor Alec Newman.
'Jack the Ripper' is a miniature 'Assassin’s Creed' experience. Rather than enlarge the existing 'Syndicate', everything about it is smaller - the story, the open world, the Assassin skills. It isn’t exactly innovative, but nor is it cheap or boring. Hopefully it is a stepping stone to even better expansions to come.
