    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

    Well, when I saw metascore and negative reviews I really expected bad or incredibly bugged game.But after playing it myself all I can say thatWell, when I saw metascore and negative reviews I really expected bad or incredibly bugged game.But after playing it myself all I can say that Assasssin's Creed Unity is awesome. It still has unique AC-series gameplay in the best traditions. Moreover they returned classic stuff like medicine (instead of auto-regeneration) and you feel yourself playing first Assassin's creed with more modern graphics. It looks like restart of series, really good restart. You can say: "man, what about bugs crashes and fps!? Is it a lie or you just kidding us?" Well, I got this game in early 2015 and it downloaded about 6GB of patches. If that game really was unplayable, now it is not. The most fresh and impessive thing you can see there is co-op mode. No, not like it was in Black flag, stuff like "Find that guard on small map and kill him screaming DIE YOU MISERABLE GUARD". Real, real co-op. With real missions like you play in single player. Incredible feelings. Also in this game you will find more customization options,there a way more weapons and clothings and now they have own stats, and really matter. You came with bad equipment to wrong district, start fighting with guards and boom, you are dead. No more terminator-stuff with hidden blade. Really good point. So, if you are AC fun and still thinking about buy or not this game, you are missing decent game, where low-fps ( rarely to be honest) and so called EVIL BUGS( which are mostly removed, I believe) really will not spoil your good impressions. I'm sure that if critics will play game again, they definitely change their rating to higher. Anyway, final choice is always yours, have fun. Expand

    FOR PC GAMERS:
    By Graphic this game is really a Next-Gen BUT..Still the same story as in every AC game since AC2. Game is so poorly optimized
    FOR PC GAMERS:
    By Graphic this game is really a Next-Gen BUT..Still the same story as in every AC game since AC2. Game is so poorly optimized even my beast PC has sometimes problem with it (i7,64GB RAM,GTX Titan SLI with newest Nvidia Drivers) so I finished the game today and I like it even when there is TONS of BUGS and GLITCHES this is the AC game we all want after all of this AC3 and AC4..Unity is the young french brother of AC2. (Which is for me still the best AC game.) Paris is beautiful and detailed,story is very simple but not so bad as in AC3 and Co-Op is SO Stupid and you can only get in if you take the player as your friend on uPlay..So game is pretty good if just "UPLAY" it without any other people. Here goes another BUT..If you have slower versions of i5 CPU or GTX cards lower than GTX780 series and less than 8GB RAM..THIS GAME IS SIMPLY--->NOT FOR YOU
