Another Hit for the Assassins Franchise

Another great addition to the Assassins franchise! Gameplay is slightly different to previous instalments but is every bit as gripping and addictive as the others!

As far as assassins creed games go I found Unity quite poor. It has some new features which are very good such as the free running down buildings which is very useful. But other than that for me the game has nothing new in it and personally I think is worse than most other games in the franchise.

I never liked Assassin's Creed until Black Flag was released. Might be because the very first Assassin's Creed was my first console game. After being a PC gamer for the whole life (minus 5-6 last years or so) I was struggling with controls, so threw the game away. Assassin's Creed 2 was also something I didn't like so I skipped all the other games until Black Flag was released. I loved Black Flag so much that I almost did everything the game had to offer. Once I saw the first Unity video - I fell in love with the game. But I have't touched it for months after buying the disk since, as everyone knows, it had massive technical problems. I don't know how many patches had been rolled out, but I started playing the game in late April and still it crashed for me 3 or 4 times. Now, after finishing all 12 chapters and doing most of other things in the game World I can comment on all its strong and weak points. Let me start with the strong ones being the graphics (it's gorgeous), environment (Paris is one of my favourites in real life), huge crowds of people populating the environment, story, enemies (way tougher than in Black Flag), weapons (many options there), co-op missions (really interesting if your 1-3 buddies don't act like Rambo) and missions. Even with such big game World Ubisoft somehow managed to avoid obvious repetitions and made the game interesting from the very beginning to its end. I'm now playing Dead Kings DLC, so the game really sucked me in. I spent around 30 hours in there and still there are quite many things I can do (won't do them all, obviously - there are many other games waiting for their turn). But as in any other game - there are issues. The biggest ones being technical. I mentioned crashes already (thank God they didn't match auto saving times), but there are occasional enemy AI issues (a few times some enemies were standing and walking or trying to go through the wall) and really odd crowd appearing/disappearing problems. Once even one glitch made me reload the last checkpoint since I was going for all the challenges (100% sync) and had to follow one guy in a missions undetected and there were 3 enemies standing and acting strange in my way (reloading that checkpoint solved it). Also 2 or 3 times I had serious frame rate issues with 1 case being during a co-op mission where I had to run away from the enemies (they almost killed me because of those lags). These are the problems I faced and they made me lower the game score by 1 star. I can name 2 more "issues" some players could face which never bothered me. First one would be levelling up. If you are not doing any side activities and not taking it stealthy enough it's highly likely that you'll be dying a lot. Better weapons and clothes cost quite a bit - add this on top of the fact that the enemies are tougher this time and you will probably be playing Bloodborne before you know it. Second "issue" is something so-called achievement/trophy hunters (aka people with no life) will face - in order to get all the trophies you'll need to open all the chests in the game and there are almost 300. Big part of them needs their locks to be picked and some locks aren't simple. I can imagine that you would need to waste at least 10 hours just to gather them all sounds like...fun. I was opening all the chests that were on my way and still only opened 40%. I'm sure that there are other time-consuming and monotonous trophies, but don't think anything can beat such boring collectible-related one. To sum it up - we have a new Assassin's Creed game which is better than any previous Assassin's Creed game in some areas (graphics, crowds and tougher enemies) and way worse in others (hello, technical issues). Can I recommend it? Yes, especially at this price. I do hope that the next game where the story takes place in London will be way less buggy.

What can I say? It felt new and fresh for once. Yes, it had fewer gameplay mechanics than previous games, that is something very odd as series usually move forward. However what is here is very fun and feels good with even the side quests being varied this time around. The story is pretty interesting compared to recent AC games and it looks pretty good except for some notable graphical glitches among the crowds of Paris. To conclude, it's still easy to recommend to fans of the series or just open world games. 4/5

Now that the 4th patch 6.5gb has rolled out his game is much more playable, frame rate and bugs mostly sorted out and it was the poor frame rate that ruined it in the first place. Graphics are awesome and it's just more of the same of all the other games in the franchise. Buy it now that it's been fixed!

I just wanted to pop a review in here in the hope that it will persuade someone to give it a try despite the overwhelming response it has been getting due to bugs etc. I am absolutely loving this game on PS4 and have not been deterred by the occasional frame rate dip that I have encountered. This game takes me back to the days of AC2. A great sense of atmosphere and a beautifully realised Paris to play in. The gameplay is so much fun... Combat is challenging but satisfying and the desire to clear the map of its numerous challenges, collectables and viewpoints is hugely addictive. If you have any interest in this game, give it a go!

The game is a lot of fun. Graphics are great. There are some glitches but nothing to bother me and nothing that you don't find in all the other next gen games around at the minute. Very enjoyable and can play for hours upon hours, I haven't played a game I can't put down for a long time.

Assassin's Creed Unity sees the franchise return to its original form of land based high detailed city exploration. Having been a huge fan of the entire Assassin's library i was super excited for Unity and for the most part i was not disappointed, Fans of the series probably know you're not going to get a great story and that it is more of a world to explore and complete side missions and achieve those all important viewpoint synchronisations. Unity does not fail to give a huge well realised Paris that vastly changes through the course of the game mirroring the beautifully dark era of the French Revolution giving moments where the player must just pause and take in the stunning visuals of Paris and its rooftops. The parkour mechanics are also vastly improved, now there is no clumsy ledge by ledge descent now with one tough of a button, Arno (the protagonist) will fluidly slide and shimmy his way down a building with ease. i could not recommend this game more however i am only giving this game 4 out of the 5 stars as the game is buggy. For the most part my play through was unhindered but when i reached areas with dense population of NPC'S (non playable characters) the game began to chug with a noticeable drop in frame rate. Not something one would expect from a highly polished fluid next generation console game.

Back to basics.

If you like the original assassins Creed and the second one and want more of the same this if for you. There's really nothing that adds to the existing formula and is a backwards step from black flag which actually added to the formula and produced a forwards step. Unity is very pretty and the art team did a impressive job in recreating Paris. The main character is one in a long line of the standard video game protagonists just snarky and quite frankly a bit of a fool. The games promise of improved free flow movement are patialy delivered while the addition of a downwards movement is better but it still doesn't alive the major flaws in the system being you can't always be sure of where you are going to end up. The touted much hardy and different combat is basically just you get killed quicker and there harder to kill the basic system remains. However the options in combat have been reduce somewhat from what's been available before yet again small blades are missing from the game and for the first time in a while the hidden blades have been removed as a combat option ( there's one there for assasinations of course) the riddles in the game that take a whole side mission are overly obtuse and frankly to difficult for the normal player those with only decent knowledge of Paris and the very logical minds out there will have a decent chance of completing all of them. The side missions are plenty full but completely unrewarding. The map is cluttered with collectibles from the get go and many are locked unless a player downloads and plays through the unity star phone and tablet companion app and others are completely Impossible to open as they rely on a system that is currently broken for many people ( initiates a game tracking website that is linked to uplay). Now this game has done away with competitive multiplayer which has been something of a series favourite for many players and intoroduced a coop missions, now the system when it works well is pretty decent you and some friended go aroun Paris and generaly stick it to the Templars. But there's still somyhing lacking from its cool but it's just like the rest of the game repetitive, clunky and mostly forgettable. Over all if the old assasin creed games are your thing and your just I hi g for more this is right up your ally but anyone who is wondering if this is the assassins creed game that will reinvigorate the series then the answer is no.
