    The PC version of Assassin's Creed Unity is visually stunning, but it's also very demanding in terms of hardware requirements. If you've got what it takes to run the game smoothly and you like the series, this is the best episode so far.

    The PC version of Unity requires a pretty hefty rig to run, and an even heftier one is recommended. That said, those of you who have access to this will find that Unity on PC looks even better than its console brethren thanks to being able to run at resolutions above 900p, enhanced textures, and (hardware permitting) a much higher frame rate than the locked 30fps of the Xbox One and PS4.

    Well at least it's better than ACIII. [Issue#257, p.66]

    As I write this, Assassin’s Creed: Unity is a bugfest, but technical problems, however annoying, can and probably will be fixed. It is not cracks in textures that it is the most worrying thing about Unity, but the cracks in game design and writing.

    If you can put up with the stuttering performance and some comically ridiculous bugs (my favourite was an assassination target moon-walking backwards into my confused assassin’s cavalry sabre) then there’s a decent Assassin’s Creed experience to be found in Unity.

    An amazingly beautiful and dull adventure that takes the series well established elements and let's you repeat then yet again in an uninspired infinity. Not even hardcore fans should make excuses for this barely done game of bugs and routine work. Actually they should be the most upset. With Unity the series has gone from it's best to maybe it's worst.

    The technical issues (framerate, bugs, getting stuck in geometry) alone should prevent anybody from giving this a 10/10 score.

You can't reward something a perfect score that has so many glaring technical issues. ( My pc can't handle tthis game above of 25 FPS) It's a terrible technical mess of game. Expand

    Returning to the AC series after AC: Brotherhood and I can say I was better off..

    The story is still as far away from the great historical aspect it could have; and still about alien-ish / religious-ish / evil corporation / magical artifacts crap.

    The new "free running system" is not helping anything. You will still rage and have the ENORMOUS frustration of not going where you want to; which will result in a lot of death in failed escape / runaways.

    The gameplay itself have not changed at all since the first ACs (Plus it's missing the cool naval fights from the previous opus..).

    Plenty of the main missions have not worked well for me; even some of the tutorials missions are off timing; resulting in many failures. (Most likely since Ubi are just copying their Gameplay and are not innovating anything with the series so only juniors work on this; resulting in bad gameplay / scripting / level design).

    You will also find the obvious and oh plenty bugs and glitches (falling through the map, camera glitches, etc...). and the version is COMPLETELY BROKEN ON PC!!
    I am having tremendous FPS problems whatever the settings I put with dual GTX 690 (or solo disabling SLI), i7-3930, 32gb DDR3...
    And trust me; it is not an issue with drivers or whatever..

    I absolutely loved the first 2 ACs; but trying my luck back: I can say this series is dead for me forever.
    If you were on edge for this one: my two cents is dont buy it.

    With all the performance issues I had a difficult time even getting far enough in to the game to develop any opinion of the game play. GivenWith all the performance issues I had a difficult time even getting far enough in to the game to develop any opinion of the game play. Given that, the game play was not significantly improved upon over the previous incarnations of this series. With all of Ubisoft's talking about the engine and changes to the game play I found it to be less than spectacular, or even really all that fun since I had "been there, seen that" in previous games. Add the hefty performance issues that rally draw into question the level of effort put in to even trying to make the game playable, and this one is a complete non-starter.

    If you absolutely *must* play another Assassin's Creed game, I strongly suggest waiting a few weeks/months to get all the problems dealt with *or* simply wait for the next iteration of the franchise.
