    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.

YES you need a beast rig to run it, So if you don't have that, pack up your **** and go home. That being said, I've spent 3 hours playing the game and I absolutely love it. There is soooo much **** to do. I've hardly played any of the campaign because I'm still running around solving mysteries, picking up collectables, and dealing with real time events like killing thieves.

    To balance out the poor scores, I'm giving this game a 10 even though I whole-heartedly think that the game is a 9/10. People need to learn to tweak this game to make it run properly before bashing it. Its NOT poorly optimized.

    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.

    24 Fps on medium settings with a GTX 770 and an I7 3770k?
    I could run watchdogs on ultra 60 Fps and everyone knows what a mess that was.
