    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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Игра идеальна!
    Довелось пройти все 12 частей в игре, хочу в ней выбить платину, ведь платина в игре легкая!
    Сам сюжет довольно не плохой мне понравились абсолютно все моменты сюжета, здесь есть немного путонеца, но в принципе игра не плохая как многие говорят. Не понимаю как можно говорить что здесь сюжет говно?
    Игра отличная советую всем!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I didn't buy this game at launch, so many of the glitches had been patched by the time I got to play the game. I guess the glitches are the main reason, why this game's ratings are terrible.

    There were still couple of bugs when I played this, but nothing game breaking. The gameplay is a hit and miss. Climbing mechanics are one of the worst of the series. The "controlled descending" was nice, but rest of it was bad. The combat system is pretty average. It is more unforgiving than in the previous games and for the first time in AC series I actually had to avoid combat, since the opponents were too tough. Good for you Ubisoft!

    The "memories" or missions were also different from the previous games and to be honest, the freedom of how to kill your targets was a fresh way to change the gameplay. Main missions were good, but I couldn't bother with the side quests. They were too repetitive.

    The story was pretty good up until the ending. Arno's and Elise's relationship was great and it really kept me playing through the story quickly. But then the ending was completely predictable and lame. Dark and gritty endings can be good, but not when they are done like this. Around halfway point of the game I already knew that Elise was going to die. If Elise would have lived, then that would have been a surprise ending and a very pleasant one! But now the ending just left a bitter taste in my mouth.

    With slightly better mechanics, fewer glitches and with a different ending, this game really would have been a masterpiece...

    Don't believe the super positive reviews....Ubi uses it's employees to makeup fake reviews as was proven many times in the past.

    Keep your sanity and avoid this game
