    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

Graphics are stunning, some bugs in Arno's and the npcs animation, but I can get over it, didn't see any flying nps like many people reported.

    I would give a 8, but to compensate to all these stupid haters that put a big fat zero without even playing the game, I will inflate it to a 10.

    I'm making this review in 2020, just to tell everyone how the game is now.

    The game looks great, most of the bugs are fixed, and the game is playable, but it must be said, than even with all the bugs fixed, the gameplay its not very good, the story is between mediocre to ok, because it doesn't advance the grand story of the AC games. Trophy wise, this games brings the grindiest trophy list you cand find.

    My disappointment is not with Assassin's Creed. It's with Ubisoft, EA, Square Enix, and other mega big gaming companies. They set releaseMy disappointment is not with Assassin's Creed. It's with Ubisoft, EA, Square Enix, and other mega big gaming companies. They set release dates in stone and end up releasing games before they are finished. Dragon Age's healing system and healing spells are gone. Linking CO-OP, multiplayer, and singleplayer. together does not work. I want to play stealth, I am playing smash and bash, and I am ahead of both of you because all of my skills are maxed out. Now I really don't want Dragon Age:Inquisition. We are not going to make the game harder, We're just doing away with health spells. Did anyone remember the eight hours it took to beat Dungeon Siege 3. I am sorry a game should not go from 35 hours of game time to just 8. I am sick and tried of these half baked games. I am so happy Rockstar pushed back GTA 5 PC release to 2015. Because it means they are crossing their T's and dotting their I's. Expand

As demonstrated by Assassin's Creed Unity, the game just feels like it slogs through mission after mission with a lack of cohesion. And does it surprise anyone at this point that the game doesn't look anything like it did at E3? Man, what happened to you Ubisoft? Expand
