    Synopsis


    Paris 1789 — the once-hub of cultural and intellectual activity has been thrown into bloody chaos in the midst of the tense French Revolution. Commoners have become tired of the oppressive regime of the aristocrats and have finally gathered the courage to confront the hierarchy with the pangs of the present inequality. As the nation of France tears apart at the seams, splitting into different factions, a young man named Arno sets off on a journey to reveal the true powers behind the Revolution. In the process of seeking the truth, Arno must face a ruthless struggle as he seeks to carve out a new destiny for the nation he holds dear.

    From the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI, experience the French Revolution in all its remarkable, gory detail as never before in Assassin's Creed: Unity. With an all-new game engine, Revolutionary Paris is rendered in incredibly realistic detail, letting you freely explore the open world of 18th century Paris. Navigate your way through complex building interiors, discover secret catacombs and slink through sewer systems. Featuring realistic, systemic crowds of up to 5,000 AI-driven characters, you'll feel as if you're truly in the throngs of the city. Play as Arno — a developing Master Assassin — embarking on ancestral missions, treasure hunts, murder mysteries, contracts and other heart-pounding adventures. Eliminate enemy threats with a wide range of new weapons, including the Phantom Blade, which combines a hidden blade with crossbow capabilities for ultimate devastation. Utilize full-motion control with parkour mechanics, so you can freely run up, down and across city walls and buildings. Want to remain discreet? Enhanced stealth gameplay makes it easy to stay hidden as you stalk your prey and strike without warning. Customize your play experience by choosing from hundreds of possible combinations of weapons, gear, outfits and specialized skills. Take part in an epic single-player campaign or join up with 3 friends online. You and your lethal band must rely on communication skills to successfully accomplish a slew of missions — sabotage an execution, protect an emperor, assassinate a Templar agent and more. Do you have the skills needed to reverse the fate of an entire city?

      I've seen my fair share of negative reviews about this game but it's been an overall fun game to play! I enjoy the fact that you have an entire city to explore and the sheer amount of people wandering around the city is impressive. While there were a few bugs when I first started playing (fell through the ground a few times, slow framerate in one area) I haven't noticed anything since they updated things. I do like the fact that you now have more directions to move when climbing up buildings that always bothered me a little with Assassin's Creed 2. However, it has also ended up with some instances of me ending up where I don't want to go... or getting stuck on a chair and having to spend a few seconds getting down (which is never good when you're trying to chase someone down or run away). This game does move away from the feel of Assassin's Creed 3 and 4 somewhat as the "linear-ness" of those games seemed to discourage exploring side areas. That could be a pro or a con depending on what kind of games you enjoy. I also haven't tried the multiplayer yet but I don't really intend to as I prefer single-player play. Pros: - Incredible graphics - Immersive environment/people - Loads of side missions and content that will keep you entertained for more than a few hours! Cons: - Long loading times Neutral (depending on what type of gameplay you prefer): - A more free form of movement - Harder combat which forces you to be more stealthy

      An interesting setting wrapped around a buggy game

      I had high expectations for the latest Assassin's Creed game after having played through Black Flag. I was eagerly anticipating walking through the busy streets of Paris during the French Revolution and exploring all the intricate details offered/promised by the new generation of consoles. I was quite impressed by the graphics displayed in the game, however, the frame rate leaves much to be desired. The game slows to a crawl in certain sections and does not run anywhere near the claimed 30 FPS by Ubisoft. Much like Revelations, the story is jumbled and at times incoherent. The relationship between Arno and Elise was interesting. The addition of co-op missions is much welcome to the franchise, i do however miss the true multiplayer. It would have been nice to play the entire game in co-op, but the missions available are quite fun and challenging if you want to play stealthy. I found the combat in Unity to be quite different than previous versions and not in a particularly good way. The limited HUD option was a great addition to the game. I generally find AC UI to be ugly but the limited HUD allows you to take in the wonderful level of detail in the environment without the map, buttons and health meter. It would have been nice had the developers included more of an indication of low health in the limited HUD mode as I found myself dying after just a few hits because there was no such indication.

      Not The Best Showing

      This is hard for me to say, being such a fan of the series since the beginning-- Assassin's Creed Unity could quite possibly be the biggest disappointment as far as big name titles go. The story is uninteresting, the lead character is dull and hard to connect with, and then...there are the numerous bugs and glitches-- so many, in fact, it's like Ubisoft didn't bother to beta-test the game before release. AC: Unity is getting it fair share of public backlash for this, and deservedly so. Don't get me wrong-- the game is beautiful, aesthetically. With this being the first iteration of Assassin's Creed on a next-generation console, the game looks great, granted, there are areas where it's clear that the developers don't really know where to harness the power of these consoles, and again, that's evident in the bugginess. There are tons of other things that makes this game stand out from the other games in the series, but in all seriousness, even those areas are flawed, especially with the abundance of microtransactions that were included. So, if you're a fan of Assassin's Creed, enter at your own risk. Of course, patches and updates are coming really soon, but it's going to take some serious work to make it worth purchasing upon release. Keep that in mind before purchasing.

      A Mess

      I loved all the assassins creed games besides part 3. This game was a giant failure i don't even know where to begin with my complaints. The graphics alone is poor and black flag on the 360 looked better. This is also the Glitchiest and Buggiest game i have ever played before in my life. It would randomly freeze and restart the game on its own free will not saving anything i was in the middle of. Multiplayer on here was beyond repetitive theres a total of maybe 8-10 different jobs so you'l beat them all in less then a day. All the good weapons and gear was locked for a mode that is not available yet and no word on when it actually will be released other then rumors. The lag and issues connecting to servers online was terrible its a 50/50 chance the game will load or it will freeze during multiplayer loading screens until everyone leaves the game then it loads once your by your self. Then there is the infamous ghost kill when you'll be taking damage from invisible people who just are not on the screen until you die. Then to top it off the extremely over the top loading times for the game to actually load. I have wait 15-20 minutes just for the story mode to actually load up.

      I am an Assassin's Creed fan. I have played every console release, including DLC and standalone arcade titles. I bring that up only so you'll understand the gravity when I say that this game is GARBAGE. I'll try to keep it short: -The missions are numerous, similar and tedious. -Co-op and microtransactions are thrust upon you, with no clear benefit for the latter and a genuinely unfun experience for the former. -Traversing the map is terrible. The game way overcompensates for movement, making the free running parts frustrating beyond belief. Even simple moves from the old games are all but impossible, as you're more likely to just give away your position as you bounce around uncontrollably. -Combat is the worst. Very tedious. Not fun. No defense against firearms, which every enemy in this game carries and uses liberally. Thanks to this game, I will NEVER preorder an Assassin's Creed game again. This game has obvious problems, there is no way the developer didn't know about them. Play Assassin's Creed Rogue or Black Flag for your AC fix. This game is for the hardcore, desperate or masochists only. I hope Ubisoft get's it back together soon.

      This game comes under a lot of criticism for all the bugs it has but thats not really an issue anymore seeing how they've had the time to patch them. The story is fantastic if you are into the french revolution. The multiplayer is a blast when you have people to play with you can do side missions for hours and get a lot of money to unlock some cool weapons and outfits there is so much to do. This game is a gem of the series plagued by launch issues due to ubisofts rushing of a game. The game isn't perfect but its fun and that's what matters to me i haven't seen the issues with peoples faces not rendering only issue i got was when trying to stab a person in the game the animation just ends up messing up the guy dies but it doesn't feel like you've killed him. Other than that lots of fun cool missions tons of outfits to choose from and a great arsenal of weapons you will not regret picking this game up. Also there is free dlc for it so you cant complain about free stuff

      Great Game Now That the Bugs Have Been Addressed

      This game has a lot of negativity surrounding it. This is largely due to the many bugs and glitches that plagued its release. Ubisoft seems to have fixed most of it. I personally did not experience many issues. Occasional freezing and some issues connecting to co op. Other than that, I love this game. The story is a bit short, both in length and scope. However, it was not bad. Just hard to compare it to the much better tales in AC 2 and AC Rogue. I feel the gameplay itself was improved. The updated parkour movements feel better. The fighting is harder. The AI is more aggressive and you can no longer bring down 20 men without breaking a sweat. But the kills feel brutal and satisfying once you get a good weapon. Customizing your gear is a great touch. The upgrade system is okay. A couple of things that are considering upgrades were basic for other assassins but there are just a couple of them that feel that way. Even though the story is short, there are many side missions and co op missions to flesh the game out. The city of Paris is breathtaking to look at it. Recommended for any AC fan. Those that are new to AC, give it time. It's overwhelming at first, but will grow on you as you become better.

      Don't get me wrong, the game has fantastic graphics and a great story but it plays much different then the rest. It is much harder to fight enemies than the other games as well as very easy to die. Each one has had its unique puzzles and forced the player to think but this one has turned the whole game into a puzzle changing situations where you could just run in, kill all the guards as well as your target into something of a realistic version. In this game you must literally look around to find a best path and makes the user utilize the surroundings which is great in theory but not a fun change from what assassin's creed has previously held. The upgrades are interesting but also quite annoying. You must literally get stronger to learn new things and make your character stronger rather than basically being able to take anything on right from the beginning. If this game were to be a re-skin of assassin's creed 4:black flag or even rogue, which was in and of itself a re-skin of black flag I would have given this game a 5/5 but considering the facts I believe ubisoft took many of the more disliked elements and made a game with them.
