Assassin's Creed Unity

Assassin's Creed Unity Reviews Summary

Summary: Assassin's Creed Unity has deep technical issues that have prevented it from truly having its time in the sun. But with various patches after its release, the game can be judged more fairly as being a mediocre, but not terrible entry into the franchise

Assassin’s Creed Unity is not a good game. It’s a buggy, poorly written adventure that received a lot of criticism from the fan-base when it released back in 2014. 6 years later, that criticism is still warranted as Unity remains a buggy, poorly written title that stands out as one of the worst games in the Creed franchise.

A magnificent city full of exciting assassination missions, marred by broken co-op and technical issues.

Assassin's Creed Unity is a gorgeous and entertaining game of impossible peaks and disappointing valleys.

As the seventh major instalment in the series, though, not to mention the first designed for new console hardware, Assassin's Creed Unity feels like a missed opportunity. Going back to basics at this point may have resulted in a less substantial game than recent years have led us to expect, but it might have delivered a more satisfying one. As it is, mild improvements in traversal and combat are quickly overwhelmed by the creaking systems onto which they have been grafted. Revolutionary Paris is one of the most beautifully realised environments in a series that has had its fair share of them, but the game you play doesn't really do it justice.

Unity manages to push the series forward enough to make this truly great, it's only sad that a few left over hiccups have carried over from the previous generation. Traditional Creed problems aside, this manages to be an unrivalled murderous sandbox and Paris hands over a visually impressive blood drenched historical playground.

Not the bold new reinvention that Assassin's Creed needed but instead a rushed, patently unfinished mess whose improvements are minor and failings more obvious than ever.

A thoughtful story with some great missions, but fundamental problems in control, balance, and tech hold the game back

Assassin's Creed Unity's recreation of a battle-scarred Paris is a joy to behold, but its so-so story doesn't make the most of this gorgeous setting.

It's gorgeous but not very fun in solo or co op.
