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

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.

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

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

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.
