    Unity doesn’t just play well, it looks beautiful too. The graphics have a stunning painted quality to them that may be attributed to the way that different materials react to the lighting.

    A huge Assassin's Creed episode, with gorgeous visuals and very funny and engaging co-op missions and activities.

    An excellent and entertaining game that innovates the series but it is ruined by poor optimization. Splendors of revolutionary Paris are flawed by annoying blunders that have been removed only now by Ubisoft. [Issue#248]

    Assassin’s Creed Unity improves on the gameplay, the mechanics, the amount of people in the game and the music compared to earlier AC releases - and it even includes a fun co-op mode. Where it falls flat is on the delivery of the open world. It constantly feels like the PS4 is about to break under the pressure of working too hard. Framerate dips, pop up and ins and odd textures will definitely make this a pass for many gamers. We were still able to enjoy the game despite these short comings, but we can’t help but feel disappointed.

    You’ll praise this for its picture perfect Parisian playground, killer co-op and infectious customisation. But you’ll also want to baguette out for its aging mechanics and slippy framerate. [January 2015, p56]

    Assassin's Creed Unity takes part in revolutionary Paris, but there is no sign of gameplay revolution. Game suffers with technical issues, one can smell the free-to-play principles and there isn't anything fresh. But the game looks beautiful anyway.

    Finding enjoyment in Unity requires a great deal of patience, more than anyone can afford. I want to like the game, and I do to some extent, however I cannot ignore that it’s broken. And there is no patch that can ever save Unity from its tarnished image.

    Even though AC is an yearly release franchise, and to be honest AC IV is not exactly what I'm looking for, I gotta say, AC Unity is freakingEven though AC is an yearly release franchise, and to be honest AC IV is not exactly what I'm looking for, I gotta say, AC Unity is freaking awesome, and totally fresh. The graphic, the setting, the atmosphere is perfect, the characters is well done, the story, although predictable is still pretty good. And I didn't even experience any frame drop, and hardly any glitches at all. Overall, this is definitely the best AC game ( for me at least ) Expand

    I saw negative opinions about the game, however, I think the game is one of the best of all time. I guess that beats even The Last of Us. I'mI saw negative opinions about the game, however, I think the game is one of the best of all time. I guess that beats even The Last of Us. I'm going to talk about the positive points:
    1) the graphic quality of the game is inarguable, where was thought each of the details of the city at the time.
    2) care for the dress is amazing, whether of the richest or poorest
    3) the amount of people who put on the streets take their game to a level that you know even if there's a revolution about to happen
    4) the interiors of houses or shops are fantastic. Works of art in parts, Golden details, clocks, marble staircases and so on. I've never seen anything like that in a game.
    5) The supporting characters are extremely varied. They range from workers performing their activity, people carrying crosses, or other people. People killed in Barrow. This leads us to think what really was going on at that time.
    6) the amount of gameplay options is incredible. You have several ways of playing. Whether in research, whether in the cracks, either in historical discovery of riddles, is in hot pursuit, is to collect points, is to find and open objects, is to open and manage a new business and so forth. The game not to have options that challenge your ability to think and, for me, this is real game. Not to mention that the game brings a very interesting cultural contribution.

    There are several other aspects that I could say here.
    I will give a few bugs that has happened 9.5 in others I hadn't seen, but given the ambition of Ubisoft and the quality of the game, I'm going to give you this note. The game deserves 9.5 for sure.

    Unity is better than Far Cry 4, but that's not saying much. Unity is just as disappointing as FC4, and has all of the same problems: The mainUnity is better than Far Cry 4, but that's not saying much. Unity is just as disappointing as FC4, and has all of the same problems: The main character is as interesting as a wall, The story is forgettable and underwhelming, The gameplay is exactly the same as Black Flag. The graphics and world are nice to look at, but that doesn't make up for anything. Also, Unity is chock full of hilarious bugs and glitches, which are more entertaining than the game itself. The only reason Unity leaps above FC4 is because of the slightly more interesting story. Don't buy this game, buy FC3 or wait for Syndicate to come out. Expand

The glitches and bugs are incredibly rampant, with character models flying all over the place and cut audio appearing in and out at random times. I've had to leave the game numerous times to be able to finally free my character from the window that they had somehow fused into. Multiplayer in this game is also where you can find an abundance of glitches and the occasional frame-rate nose dive. I've had the game go from 27 fps to 15 fps within the blink of an eye and stay there for more then 3 minutes. I've also had missions FORBID THEMSELVES from letting my friends and I complete said mission, a prime example of this would be a mission were you have to take out snipers within buildings before a characters chariot comes between their cross-hairs. The mission INTENTIONALLY makes it so that once you've taken out at least 8 of the 9 snipers, the last sniper disappears from existence, and your left looking at the bar that says "8 Out Of 9 Snipers Eliminated" until you restart the mission again and hope that the game is in a forgiving mood. The story of this game feels like a french version of ACII, and in no way does it improve upon it or give you a memorable character like ACII did. The only thing this game seems to do right is the combat system, but about 2/3s of it is still BS. They took away the mechanic were you were able to turn any enemy into a meatshield when an enemy was about to shoot you, so now, every time you fight a group of enemies, you have to either roll around and move like an autistic child on a sugar high to avoid being shot, and even WITH that, you still get hit. The enemies AI seems to have also taken a massive amount of steroids, because the difficulty enemies present now is even more then that of all previous AC games enemies combined. So enjoy dying a lot. Overall, I'm glad a friend lent me this game, because I would have regretted this purchase till the day I died Expand

    Terrible game. Players can't play for more then 3 weeks now. Ubisoft won't reply. Thousand of gamers are pissed and they do nothing. Don't buyTerrible game. Players can't play for more then 3 weeks now. Ubisoft won't reply. Thousand of gamers are pissed and they do nothing. Don't buy this game before the problems are solved. Patch three made it worse.
    Players can't play online, System crashes at every startup of the game. Save your money and check some other great game that does work! Happy gaming!!
