A broken mess, now fixed, still a bland gamesycomantis1991 | May 29, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
It's been a while since a worthwhile Assassin's Creed came out. As someone who refused to throw any money at the franchise (at least full price money on release), I reveled in how terrible it was on release. Luckily, I got a chance to play it when it was still a broken mess. It was actually fun to play just to see what would happen next. Now that it's been patched up, it's an average if dull experience that looks nice enough to be worth looking at for a small amount of time.

This is likely the ugly duckling of the series, its a step back. While the storyline is typhical AC quality which means decent or serviceable the issue here is bugs and performance, these two make it impossible for me to enjoy the game. Its down to the point that changing the setting doesnt make the game look any better for me, also the game crashes a lot, i get frame drops all over the place and for no real reason. females and or males will spawn with the opposite genders body parts. This all breaks it out of emersion, it feels like a early access steam game. For these reasons i can't recommend the game, its a real shame.

A lot of people have experienced what they say are game breaking bugs. I however have not encountered these bugs. Maybe I am just lucky? Who can say. I did encounter some lag bug issues. It's an annoyance, but wasn't game breaking. I'm not keen on the setting though! I've never been interested in the French revolution. However while the setting seemed boring to me, the graphics and sound are amazing, and the character of Arno is interesting! Overall I am quite pleased with this instalment of the series.
Avoid at all costs. Buggy derivative mess.Takwin | Feb. 8, 2015 | See all Takwin's reviews »
As of February 2015, this game still has bugs that causes crashing and other odd things to happen. Ubisoft sold an unfinished game that needed many months more testing. As for the game itself, it is the same old derivative crap, flat characters, uninteresting story, simple combat, and stupid collectibles. The parkour is improved and combat is better for sure, but they still aren't even close to as good as Shadow of Mordor. I really think this will be the last time I am tricked by Ubisoft unless the next one gets rounds of 9's and 10's and is certified bug free. Therefore, I'll likely never play another Assassin's Creed in my lifetime.
Needs to be fixed.Kane987245 | Dec. 3, 2014 | See all Kane987245's reviews »
The game as usual is great to play and have fun fooling around in. But if you've seen any of the reviews before this one, there is a common theme is this being buggy, patches updates are needed, and the fact i need an app to open up chests are pulling this game down like cemented feet. Wait until this game is fixed up and you'll reep the rewards.
