ACU is a very ambitious game. It's visually spectacular. The animation work is phenomenal. The game has gone back to its roots of being more of an assassin simulator rather than an action game. It even has a fully incorporated cooperative system in place. Unfortunately, with every ambitious game, there are generally shortcomings. ACU is by far one of the worst optimized AC games to date. It just does not run well at all. The combat is more challenging and slower, which I like for the skill aspect, but it's clunky at times and a little too basic. The story started out very strong. Unfortunately, by the end of the game the story falls flat. It's underwhelming, to say the least, and while I enjoyed Arno I never felt he had the opportunity to really flourish in the game. If you like Assassin's Creed, you will like this game. It's not my favorite by any means, but it's definitely a good game despite its shortcomings.
If you played this game when it came out, it was a mess but I had the fortune of waiting a year and by then the game worked smoothly. I encountered no bugs and it was a lot of fun to be able to choose your approach to in game missions not just with the environment but also with the new variety of game play styles. Personally, I enjoyed playing with a primary weapon being the rifle or a long staff weapon. The only downside is the amount of collectables which gets out of hand.
Assassin's Creed Unity - the game which made lots of gamers all over the world angry. Nevertheless I won't talk about technical part of AC Unity, because it has perfect gameplay, excellent new features, big and alive city, amazing music and quite good storyline. Ubisoft tried to make something similar to AC II: we see main hero - Arno Victor Dorian who looks like Ezio Auditore da Firenze and has the same features of character. He loves a very pretty Elise de la Serre - the daughter of Master-Templar and tries to find the killer of his stepfather. Storyline looks good but it's not level of AC II. But the gameplay is awesome thanks to changed parkour and fighting systems. Now you can't kill an army of enemies and at the beginning of game 2 or 3 soldiers could be a big trouble for you. There are also some features like Phantom Blade, ability to solve the crimes, building which scale is 1:1 with original. Everything makes you to feel new AC experience and you don't want to leave this game. Assassin's Creed Unity is one of the best games in Ubisoft's franchise, but some technical reasons made it one of the most hated. 90 from me and I wish all of you good luck with playing ACU! Hope 'Victory' will become the greatest Assassin's Creed we've ever seen!
Honestly, I've always been a big fan of the assassin's creed series. There are obviously a lot of technical issues but I've yet to encounter any during my 30 hrs of ac:unity. The Pros. The crowd and the city feels really great. The Parkour is a great improvement and the combat feels fresh for an ac game as well. The Conn. Starts to get a little dull after a while because of the poor story. The stories the really downside to this game. All in all, going back to the crowded streets feels like a good direction for the series.
So I was so hyped about this game, and when it came out and I played it I was disapointed. First of all, the optimisation is bad. Very bad. They won't fix this even after 50 patches. Second the graphics are not so pretty unless you have a super computer. The game barely runs at 30fps on Low settings. The gameplay is rather good. The combat is harder this time and kinda choppy. The animations are really nice and neat. The new parkour overhaul too. The story is the weak part of the game, with some elements of it really neglected. It starts well, and ends bad. And also there is no modern day gameplay. Very disapointed.
