When 2005 rolled around, we were already quite familiar with Sam Fisher for what he was at the time: a straight-laced spy that did everything by the book with a multitude of unique tools and suave covert moves to take on any mission with flawless...
Far Cry Primal takes place in 10,000 BCE, thousands of years before modern music was even conceived, but I still expected Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” to come bursting on during the mammoth hunting intro in true Far Cry fashion. Licensed music aside, Far Cry Primal is still very much a Far Cry game. Taking over outposts and enemy camps, finding bonfires to uncover more of the map and gathering crafting items, it’s all here. Far Cry Primal seeks to put you in the shoes, or rather, hunting furs of a primitive human trying to survive and secure a place for his people, but it seems to get in its own way at the worst times.
Seven years after the release of the last Rainbow Six game, we've seen a multitude of strictly online-only FPS games come and go as the focus on blockbuster solo campaigns have started to dwindle. It takes a lot for a predominantly multiplayer FPS game to entice players to keep coming back for the long haul.

The series last two solid entries, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Rogue, took us across the Atlantic to the open seas of the new world, but Syndicate takes us to London as it's growing from the boom of the 19th century technology.
With Assassin's Creed Syndicate's release on the horizon, it's time we look back at the series best and worst entries. The war between the Templar and Assassins have been going on for centuries, and there have been all kinds of adventures where we played as a famous Assassin (and occasional Templar) to unearth secrets that could alter the future of humanity.
