by AlphaWolf102 Great Game
Overall, ac unity is a great game. Sure there is bugs here and there, but all games have them. The story confused me a little. SPOILERS AHEAD. when did arno get excepted into the brotherhood after his exhile? I mean he required his Master Assassins Robe at the end, so he must be part of the assassins again, right? I don't know, but this doesn't ruin the game for me. I think what bothers me the most is if your chasing someone and you decide to climb a roof or cut through a building, I always get stuck on objects like chairs. Arno will leap up on a chair, hesitate to come down and when you finally get him down, the slight movement of the controls makes him hop up again. Then, you fail the mission for letting your persuor get away. This has happaned to me numerous times, and not just with that stupid chair. That really ticks me off and just makes me wants to punch a hole in my wall.(not really, just an expresion) but all in all ac unity is a great game and deserves to be known as another great Assassins Creed title.

by AssassinsHome4 Unity Looks Pretty Fresh
AC UNITY is coming and it looks pretty new.Great Graphics (If anyone saw the trailer in HD).And if rumors are true,it will feature horizontal wall running like the POP FRANCHISE which is awesome.Even the setting itself incredible with all it's events and BLOOD.Ubisoft said that they have been working on it for 3 years. I just hope they learned from AC3's Mistakes and not repeat them EVER AGAIN (I LOVED AC3 and Enjoyed every AC Game).
Rated 7 out of 10 by mike02144 Ubisoft takes A.C. to the French Revolution Era
The French Revolution Era concept was solid. Ubisoft continues to keep the 'A.C. world' and characters fairly fresh. On a side note, gamers can sometimes be annoying. They like game sagas, yet they complain when there is some repetitiveness in the gameplay. I don't know what they expect. Personally, I enjoyed the main plot for the most part. As for the side missions, I thought the Helix rift missions were cool. The only major weakness to the side missions were the Companion missions. They were extremely simplistic and short.
You can download a free DLC from the PS Store, (Sequence 13 - 'Dead Kings). I was excited for this additional content until I started it. It was very annoying trying to maneuver through this city, because there were Templar soldiers everywhere you turned. It was nearly impossible to avoid confrontation while playing this sequence.
As always, I remain an avid A.C. fan and look forward to yet another installment this fall with 'A.C. Syndicate'.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Dave0102 Missed the mark
I have played all of the AC franchise games and while it has evolved it seems they took a step back from black flag. The multiplayer is awesome except you have to pay for it so it's only so good. There really isn't a whole lot of depth to it either. You can play around 10 multiplayer missions. After thos are done there is really no reward for going back and doing them. The guild challenge is ok but its not meant to be the primary focus of the game and you can tell. The main story line is what really misses the mark. There is no need to do any of the millions of side quests to help you out witht eh main quest. They have just thrown more side quests into this one that are all rinse and repeat type quests. They all feel the same. The plot is good but it is incredibly short!!! You can complete the main storyline in no time at all. So the so the replay value stacks up to all the other assassins creed games which is relatively low. It's wayyyyy shorter than the other stories. Hope this helps.
Rated 8 out of 10 by altairrox1000 Don't Fall For The Critics' Reviews
I honestly don't know why this game got critically panned, but I like it. Unity got a lot better when the recent patch was issued. It made it so that you didn't need the companion app to get certain things, and frame rate drops and other glitches were also fixed. The gameplay in Unity is very smooth, featuring a new "free-run down" mechanic. This allows you to get down from a building without using a haystack or doing that annoying drop and grab routine. The combat is a bit harder, but then again, I always found AC combat a bit easy. You can't block, but other fun mechanics make up for it. The story isn't as strong as the other games in the series, but it isn't terrible. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll keep this part short. There are fun parts called "time anomalies." This is where the Animus goes a bit haywire for reasons that will stay unknown because I don't want to spoil anything. I think that AC Unity is a must-have for fans of the series.
Rated 1 out of 10 by fhmilan Purely, simply, bluntly AWEFUL.
Ubisoft pulls out the shamelessness on this one.
Despite being one of the probably best ever scenarios and time periods to create a game around, that's all there is to it.
An unbelievably huge potential game, it seems as if they've forgotten about the core understanding of any given videogame, which is, of course, the gaming experience.
There was such a tremendous hype growing around the release of AC: Unity, however that was before people actually got to experience it.
The game play is extremely sluggish, slow and boring.
There's absolutely nothing new in regards to gameplay.
It was an extremely boring experience and a huge dissappointment playing it for the first time, reaching a point of exhaustion to which i decided to relocate my attention towards the ubisoft's forum; were i was apparently banned after claiming the game was so bad that I'd like a refund.
To put it bluntly it pure and simply just: sucks!
Do NOT buy.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Ace2014 Horrible Change in Game Production
It's unfortunate to say but this was a very disappointing game. I wish I could finish the story, so I can stay caught up with the AC franchise but the game play was too complicated. Some complained about how easy it was to fall or how difficult it was to climb. I actually found it fun and helpful, once you get use to the 'finger management' of your control and the game play. In all the AC games before Unity, it was easy to upgrade your main character by buying weapons, crafting equipment, etc. In Unity, there were over 50 weapons to buy, which were made to seem impossible to buy without having to make a long commitment to smaller objectives. There were too many details in every aspect of the game. There were also too many smaller missions, which makes this game seem too complicated compared to the other AC games. I sure hope that their next game is much more similar to the games before Unity.
Rated 7 out of 10 by thaesino Do not buy .... YET!
The game has potential, if they fix all the FPS problems and some control mechanics issues. Therefore, do not buy it just yet. Wait until people are saying they are much happier with it, or you just may experience a repeat of what happened with Watch_Dogs and how quickly it got old. The game is nice enough, however, if you're looking for an amazing story, look elsewhere. The story is decent, but not amazing. The framerate issues are the main thing killing this game. Releasing a game with these graphics, and having the game run at practically 20fps makes the project feel incomplete. Feels like another rushed release. The music is great. The voice acting is as good as in the past games. The controls sometimes fail and you will fall to your death a few times for no reason, but that's about it. Like I said, wait until it gets a few patches before buying it. Meaning... wait until Christmas time.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Loki17 The most disappointing game played
I like assassins creed I absolutely loved black flag. I thought the use of a ship to traverse different areas was the most amazing inovavtion to the as asassains creed series. That aside black flags game play was very fluid. This is not only the largest area unity fails in its truly horrendous. I waited 9 months to buy this game because of the bugs reported in it hoping they had been fixed. As soon as the game started I was walking thru roofs not on them. I found the character at times has a mind of his own leaping to his death when no buttons were pressed. This is the best free running series to date which is why this game Unity needs to be slammed. The game play is clunky consistently killing enemies by stabbing air. The additional blood only made some of the fighting realistic until ur watching engines bleed when your finishing move has only jump stabbed the ground and not an opponent. I was disgusted and felt truly let down by the studio that brings us assassins creed. They should take note from the creators of black flag and add more open world innovations such as a main vehicle. If it's broke don't fix it. But don't make a game taking such giant leaps backwards. It's more about game play then graphics. Take note from your other studios who made far cry 4 with little to no bugs.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Camstn623 Probably the worst of the series
Don't get me wrong, the story line was a good catch. But when it comes to actual gameplay and the fluidity of it, it's a total failure. I haven't seen any other games with so many bugs/glitches, aside from the UNFORGETTABLE launch Ubisoft made. Servers were down for almost a week, players reported game crashes worldwide, I myself had to RESTART my whole game due to corrupted files, not including the close call of my whole system being corrupted, I can now say this game was the ruining of the Assassin's Creed series. In my opinion, the first game would beat this one 9/10. The combat is terribly poor, so many aspects from the other games were not even introduced, the special armor is LITERALLY a black version of Altair's robe. I seriously can not talk up this game, Ubisoft dropped the ball BIG time. Overall and personally, I'm dissatisfied and could have spent my money else where.
