    First Time Playing

    |
    Posted .

    Assassin's Creed Unity has been a satisfying experience for me. I have got the platinum trophy of this game and I enjoyed most of the gameplay. What I love most is the extremely detailed 18th century Paris, from stunning re-creation of famous buildings and structures (both outside and indoor appearances and decorations) to its near real life residents. I would spend hours just walking on the streets and looking at those buildings like a tourist. As for structure modeling, this game is more like an art piece than a video game. I took quite a few screenshots on my PS4, my favorites are some of the luxury indoor decorations of the palaces, the rooms are so immersive and highly detailed that I felt like I was actually there. As for the rich amount of NPC populate, I saw all kinds of activities and it is definitely the most living world in the entire franchise. Since I do engineering related work in real life, I was surprised to find one of the earliest sanding machine. I found it in a machine workshop, a guy was operating on the sandinging machine which is powered by his feet stepping on the pedal instead of electricity, with a workpiece in his hand. Just a normal folk doing his job. There are many activities like this waiting for players to discover. The combat system is lacking. Counter-kill doesn't exist anymore and the combat is a bit dull. Arno doesn't have an arsenal of gadgets like Batman in Arkham series nor wraith abilities like Talion in Shadow of Mordor. Since high level enemies are able to parry your first two strikes, players are put in a defensive position: waiting for enemies to strike, counter them then get a few clean hits. I would love to see a counter-kill mechanics similar with the very first Assassin's Creed game, where counter-kill relies on strict timing. The enemies are also much deadly because they can use firearms and flash grenade against you. The snipers are able to detect and attack players from 30 meters (estimated) away but player's pistols and rifles have a maximum range of 25 meters (estimated). In short, there is no way to counter-snipe them. And for many missions it is very difficult to stay undetected. Assassin's Creed Unity has the weakest story line in the franchise. The creed has faded ever since Revelations and I think it reached all-time low in Black Flag and Unity. Arno's actions lack motives, he has his own agenda and blindly follows lead after lead. At the very end he forgets why he even joined the brotherhood in the first place. Again, this is my personal take. On the other hand, Unity has a variety of side missions. I enjoyed the murder mysteries missions where you help a police officer solving crimes. You have to use your brain to analyze evidences instead of cutting down enemies. Those missions are indeed carefully crafted along with Paris story missions and riddles. I highly recommend those who haven't tried them to give it a shot. Coop missions now use p2p connection and for the most part is unplayable since other players' PING can be very high. Expect super lagging.

    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    As usual, the graphics are top notch. I am literally walking through revolution era France. I love the characters and the intrigue, but I wish there were a horse or horse and carriage (a la origin and Syndicate) that would make getting around faster. I just started the game so maybe this is stuff you get later, but I am getting tired watching Arno climb buildings, run through alleys and jump from building to building. There are not enough fast travel sights to make using them a replacement for a vehicle.

    One of the essential Assassin's Creed entries

    |
    Posted .

    This is in my opinion one of the better Assassin's Creed entries. The game borrows from the more classic games in the series and is focused on roaming around a large city on rooftops and through crowds to assassinate targets. But there are refinements in the parkour and combat systems. The graphics are beautiful, there is a lot to do on the map, and the gameplay is the best the series has seen.

    Interesting new formula

    |
    Posted .

    Assassin's Creed Unity, after the numerous patches to fix its bugs, is a true next-generation game. It introduces a more difficult gameplay formula, but still retains the core combat mechanics of previous Assassin's Creed games. Story: 5/10 The story was really bland. Only reason I'm even gifting it a 5 is because of its rich setting and Elise. The introduction of Elise as a partner was well done and adds an exciting element. Other than that, it's your typical assassin wanting revenge, pick-himself-back-up-after-a-low point story. One revenge kill after another. Arno is a dull protagonist similar to Connor from AC3. Gameplay: 8/10 Here's where the game truly shines. As I mentioned beforehand, it adds a fun challenge with the new degree of difficulty in enemies. You feel like a true assassin, forced to use stealth in more situations like never before. The new mechanic for the main missions gives you a variety of options on how to tackle them, whereas in previous AC games you were forced down a linear path. Also introduced in Unity is downwards parkour, which does get annoying at times when Arno doesn't head towards where you intend him to. Otherwise, it's a smooth mechanic and climbing up and down buildings is much more refined. Also a major addition is the new crowd system. In most parts you will find it easier to use the crowd to blend. Content: 8.5/10 The main campaign missions do not take too long to complete, approximately 10 hours depending on your skill. AC:Unity has a plethora of side missions and collectibles. Murder mysteries are akin to crime investigations in the Batman: Arkham games. Nostradamus enigmas require a bit of research and background knowledge on Revolutionary France. The most fun side content in my opinion were the Data Helix missions where you are required to retrieve data fragments in an artificial setting. Soundtrack: 8/10 Soundtrack is what you would expect from Revolutionary France. As always, AC has a good soundtrack that goes well with the setting. Coop: No rating because I haven't really played it besides accidentally being put in a match. Conclusion: Yes I did get lazy at the end of this review. And yes my review is incomplete as I did not play coop and the Dead Kings DLC. Strictly speaking from a single-player point of view (main campaign and side content), it's a must buy and must play as it's an Assassin's Creed game at its core with improved gameplay mechanics. The only downside is the bland story and dull protagonist. Otherwise, I would recommend whoever took the time to read this review and all AC fans to buy this game.

    Worth a go, despite Ubisoft

    |
    Posted .

    The issues are well documented by professional reviewers and blogs: -poor optimization and a ton of ai result in low resolution and frame rate, that can cause jarring bugs, glitches, stuttering. -gamergate. Google it if you don't know. -female assassins are way too hard to render. Seriously. Google it as well... -xbox and pc hard lock/ crashes. -very different graphics than we saw in the e3 trailer or the subsequent ones. -archetypal story, characters, and formulaic plot. -uplay is the worst thing ever. I still don't have any of my dlc, and the companion app is broken. -British accents through the entire game from a French Canadian company's take on revolutionary France. -microtransactions beyond the $60 game and $30 season pass Now why I'm giving it 4 stars: -Arno is charming, much like Edward from Black Flag. It's hard to not want to see his story, despite being a bit fuzzy on some bits -Paris, France isn't just the setting; it's another protagonist and the real femme fatale of Unity. -murder investigations, Paris stories, and dynamic crime fighting in the streets elevate the franchise in very much needed ways, as does the cafe theater. -it has the ACII vibe. Ezio would have no trouble breaking bread with Arno. They might be... A bit too alike... But I really can't complain as a fan of Ezio's epic story. -the fencing/fighting is not quite what they promised it would be in terms of difficulty, but it certainly is way more fun than before. The animations are great, as well. -the voice acting is impeccable. -if they ever get the app working, it's pretty cool looking. Combined with initiates, they're trying to expand the experience past the console, and into your imagination... Caviat: and into your pocket. -the world design and camera are pretty great so far. -co-op is supposed to be incredible, although I've not played it yet. To summarize, this game has a ton of potential and replay ability, provided they fix the MASSIVE technical issues (that I'm told they are working on), discount the dlc, and most importantly- stop condescending to the gaming community as a whole and level with is when things are broken. I'm enjoying it so far, but I know I'm playing a Beta.

    Beautiful, fun, and flawed

    |
    Posted .

    If you have played a member of the Assassin franchise everything here is familiar. So far I have seen little that is unique to only this game in the series. Perhaps the newest addition is the ability to own and build Social Clubs. That is fun and rewarding. On PS4 the game is astoundingly gorgeous. Paris comes alive and is chock full - sometimes over crowded - with life. Buildings glisten and stained glass windows shine. There are some really cool elements where the whole environment is falling apart that are also wonderful eye candy. Gameplay has improved somewhat and inherited elements from other Ubisoft games. There are a few issues. One is that there are bugs. I got stuck and could not move my character at one point and simply needed to quit and start the game again. There are places where the frame rate suffers or the ability to move the character suffers from rendering speed issues. The world is huge. Huge!! This is great in terms of giving the gamer value for the money but can also be a little daunting. There are so many things to do and so many variations that it is some times difficult to make decision about what to do. Crime is rampant in revolutionary France. And this too can get a little too much at times. During a specific quest, you can end up having two or three public events (crime) that distract you. There are times when the cut between live in game action and a cut-scene is jarring. Over all I am very happy with my purchase and expect to spend a serious number of hours on this adventure.

    Great start to a next gen legacy

    |
    Posted .

    I have always liked the Assassins Creed games. They constantly added in more and more things you can do and in the last game it was a huge feast of entertainment. With the Next Gen series they went back to basics in a lot of ways. You can't own a boat, can't go hunting or foraging, can't disarm or throw people. But what you can do is truly awesome! For the first time in an AC game the combat is hard. The AI will surround you, attack at the same time, shoot you and will very frequently kill you! I am usually quite good at the Arkham/AC fighting systems and in this one the AI will blind you with flash bangs and in general make your fight a feat. The graphics in AC Unity is top notch. There are bugs every now and then but the amount of technical detail they put in this game is staggering. I will be walking down the street and actually people watch. IN A VIDEO GAME! There are scenes where there are hundreds and thousands of characters on the screen, all doing their own thing and making the world feel alive. Also for the first time AC has included COOP. To do this they took out the competitive game play that they had in other AC games (that I actually loved) and added in full free roam 4 player multiplayer player. On top of the free roam they added in missions and heists and while I wish they were a bit more random with enemy placement, etc, they are still a load of fun! I recommend this game. There are some bugs and issues that creep up but it won't stop you from loving this game.

    A great game for next gen systems, but.....

    |
    Posted .

    Assassin's Creed Unity has some great things going for it in terms of beautiful graphics (the attention to detail on the exterior as well as the interior of Parisian buildings is AMAZING), huge areas to explore, the ability to play with other people right in the game and have your spoils add to your in-game character, and customization for the main character Arno. It also has a few things that will get on your nerves, namely the load times for training, practicing, and fast travel, the lack of information regarding certain chests and doors you may need to open during missions. I recall the countless minutes to hours I spent trying to get through early co-op missions only to realize that the chests I needed to open could only be done so with a higher lockpicking skill than I had this early in the game. I guess it will give players a reason to go back when they have attained the right level, but some of those missions are pretty tedious and the reward may not be worth the added time required. Also, the old multiplayer option of killing other human controlled assassins on a level does not exist in this new version and I miss it. Playing with other human controlled assassins to complete a common goal can be fun, but I really miss being able to stealthilly take down real players by myself. That aside, I really enjoy this game and think that a lot of people will as well. A definite game to get or give this holiday season.

    Great Game for a Assassins Beginners

    |
    Posted .

    Assassins Creed is one of my favorite franchises and I have bought every game since the start. With that being said, I would put this game in the mid range of my favorite Creed games. It is a great game but it has its problems. Main at this moment is the frame rate(lag) and bug problems. I'm hoping this will get patched soon by Ubisoft. The story is somewhat interesting but doesn't really connect with past Creed games. Which is why this is a good place to start if you're new to the franchise. They have done away with most of the Animus "real world" stuff and subbed in cut scenes. A big plus I like about this game is the customization. You haven't really had this many options to change the look of you're character. So you will never really see two players that look similar. Which brings up the Co-Op. I think this is the highlight of this game. I enjoyed doing missions with friends and running around getting in trouble. All your progress, both in Co-op and single player, are the same. Controls have improved but this have those strange times when your character doesn't do what you want. Overall this is a fun game to play with friends or by yourself. Customizing your character is great and missions are a blast. Just don't expect a great story and be prepared for some choppy play(for now at least).

    I took a chance

    |
    Posted .

    After hearing all the bad things about this game, i decided i'd take a chance and buy it anyhow. It's a very rare occasion that Ubisoft delivers a bad game. This game plays just fine, despite what the media and haters might make you believe. Yes, there are very specific places where you can get the game to drop frame rate, but those places are literally about 1/1000th of the game. It's been greatly exaggerated. What other slight issues there are in this game Ubisoft is fully commited to fixing. So i'm not worried in the least. The game setting over all, i was worried that i couldn't relate to, but over all i'm finding myself right at home as with all over assassin creed games. The greatest addition to this series is the ability to descend down buildings very quickly. It's a hugely welcome addition, thought it's done at the expense of a tweak to the controls. Which i found awkward at first. Even the fighting mechanics have changed. It's more timing based, and less canned animation. So it's even harder to time a block. The sheer amount of NPCs on the screen at one time shows exactly why this game is current gen only. There's no way it could have been done on PS3 or Xbox 360. Overall, i'm enjoying the game. Don't let the nay sayers stop you from buying another AC hit.

    Very Enjoyable

    Posted .

    I'm well aware of the issues that plagued this game when it first released which is why I avoided the game altogether when it first released. I never intended to purchase this game but since its been well over a year since the game released, I decided to purchase the game because at $15 and with more than a year to fix at the bugs, the game should definitely be worth buying at this point. So far I'm really enjoying this game and its much better than what I had anticipated, which could be due to the fact that I wasn't expecting much with all the legitimate complaints this game has received. So far there are no issues with the game and I'm enjoying myself as well. The co op is rather enjoyable and the game is solid. Its not better than Assassins Creed 4 but you can't go wrong with this game especially now that most if not all of its bugs have been fixed as well. If your on the fence I recommend giving it a try if you enjoy Assassin Creed games or watching some recent gameplay footage to help you decide. This is my 5th title in the series and I can say that its definitely worth playing as your find yourself having lots of fun especially with the co op.

    underrated gem..one of the series best

    |
    Posted .

    On release, it had bugs but after a 7 or 8 gig patch it works great. i didn't see many glitches before the patch but that may not hold true for everyone. Considering how the series has changed from stealth action game to an action RPG, this is an under-rated gem. Protagonist Arno does become an assassin due to selfish reasons but the story and plots really take you in. great mix of missions and this is old school AC at its best. taking down templars is fun and sets you up for the follow up syndicate very well. Both these games are my favorites from the series. its a hit and a miss but for those who miss old AC gameplay, better get this as it's even reasonably priced now.

    AC Unity was not a let down especially after Syndicate but still is not the best. Ubisoft did a great job updating the fighting mechanics and gameplay. Still the game feels off with the graphics. Obviously the game is now almost a decade old. It was awesome to have it on the PS4 to play it again. I had a blast!

    Very Fun Assassin Game

    |
    Posted .

    I haven't played an Assassin's Creed game since Assassin's Creed II, so I'm not sure how the previous games have been but I really enjoyed getting into this game. I had heard there were a lot of problems so I was waiting until they were patched and I'm glad I did. The game has very good visuals, and like any other AC game it's fun to travel back in time and travel through historical towns. I really like how they changed the fighting to be pretty open instead of having to lock on to one enemy and everyone else just stare. Now you can engage a group and be able to parry or dodge an attack coming from behind, it all flows very well. I also really like the co-op element added and I have to admit this was the main reason I picked the game up. You can have up to 4 players travel around the city with you and there are about 11 co-op missions that you can do as a group (although some limit the group size to 2 or 3). All in all, I recommend this game, especially now that the price has gone down.

    Good but getting old

    |
    Posted .

    Let me start by saying that I didn't start playing the game until after patch 3 came out. I say this because of all the performance issues and bugs that were reported upon release. So far I have not experienced any of these issues. No major frame rate drops or bugs so it's pretty enjoyable. The game itself is really good but after playing a few of the games in the series it's starting to look repetitive. The game controls are getting more complex. Its visually stunning. There's a huge number of people roaming the streets, which sometimes can be too much. Lots of different missions. There's no pick pocketing. I like how you get to seamlessly go from the outside to the inside of buildings without having to load any graphics. The multiplayer allows you collaborate with others within the main game but I think you need PS Plus membership for that. Overall, I would recommend it, especially if you are new to the series.

    Fun game, issues with game startup

    |
    Posted .

    Black Flag was one of my favorite games on the PS4. I haven't finished Unity yet but from a story and gameplay standpoint I think it will be just as good. The companion app is also a lot of fun and a great secondary map. The only reason why I can't give this game 5 stars is due to the startup issues. If you check reviews for this game, you'll see that this was a problem from the beginning. I just got the game a month ago and it was still a problem almost 10 months after the release. After a large update, I tried playing the game (main story, not online), and the game froze about 15 minutes in. This happened 5 times, had to delete and reinstall each time. Finally it got past that scene and the game seems to be working fine now. Really hope the next Assassin's Creed does not have the same problems, otherwise I would have given this 5 stars.
