ACU, after all of its initial bugs were fixed, is an astounding game. The visuals are incredible. The size and density of Paris are incredible. Even the strategy and difficulty of combat is appealing. However, that all largely gets overshadowed by poor optimization, a lackluster story, an unlikable main protagonist, and simplistic and slow combat. Combat, in many ways, was one step forward and three steps back. It tried to make combat more strategic and smart but ended up making it clunky and simplistic. Arno came across more as an incompetent fighter than anything else. The story was also too long and had an anti-climatic ending. There also isn't even a reason to explore a quarter of Paris as the story never takes you there. Online coop was interesting, but half-baked and never fully realized. This game had a lot of great ideas, but you could tell its short development cycle crushed what could have been an absolutely perfect game.
New iteration of Assassin's Creed game leads us to late 18th century France. Main character is Arno Dorian son of french aristocrat and assassin that was killed in Versailles when Arno was a little boy. Arno later being adopted by french nobleman Mr. De La Serre, unaware that his adopted father is Grand Master of Templar order, until he is killed and Arno accused for his murder. During the fall of Bastille Arno meets assassin Pierre Bellec and escapes with him, and thats where his assassin "career" starts. During campaign you will have chance to encounter many historically important characters of that era Marquis de Sade, Napoleon Bonaparte, Maximilien de Robespierre and also do some missions to help them. Paris is divided on couple of different parts, and many of famous buildings and monuments are historically very accurate. Game looks amazing, but is very poorly optimized, and will not run smoothly even on high end machines. Second bad thing are bugs that you will be encountering more than often, making some (luckily secondary) quests unachievable. Game also has a bad habit kicking you back to the desktop from time to time, but for ones that have strong nerves it will provide many hours of fun. As in previous games you can collect the funds to upgrade your home/safe house, buy new, stronger types of weapons and armor, and unlock legendary equipment. With this historical surrounding and idea this game much bigger potential, but some things had to be polished and fixed before game release. In this stadium game is still above average, but far away from top games in this period.
Personally, though many call Unity to be a massive letdown for the Assassin's Creed series, it's actually quite a solid entry. The story, though not as great as its predecessors, is not a disappointment. The game itself features new concepts like clothing and weaponry customization and includes new melee and ranged weaponry. However, the greatest weapon in Unity's arsenal is Paris itself. The game makes Paris come alive in all its glory and I had loads of fun going through the throngs of Parisians, swarming the beautiful city. AC Unity also balances enemies, making it no longer possible to take out hordes upon hordes of unfortunate guards armed with nothing but your phantom blade. Now, you need to acquire better weapons and armor to take on tougher enemies. All in all, if you want to visit Paris during one of its most tumultuous periods and to help stop Templar tyranny behind it, then I'd recommend getting it.
For me, this Assassin's Creed wasn't that much of a disappointment, having a lot of new features on the gameplay and a wide variety of customization . The story isn't consistent as it pretends to be, but it isn't bad either, founding yourself enjoying it or hating it, this being a very subjective metter. I'm a big fan of the series, played it since 2008 and I assure you to NOT BUY this game if you are bored with the story or if you are not curious at all about what Unity has to offer and you don't see yourself playing it, although if you are, wait for a sale, buy it, and I'm sure that you won't be disappointed, the same goes with people that are new to this franchise. At the end of the day Unity it's a great game that suffered from poor development decisions at it's time of the release, but it got better and it evolved in such a great experience for whoever it's interested to experience what Assassin's Creed universe has to offer.
One of the best assassins creed games made.The events they occur are historically accurate and TG e graphics are beautiful.The weapons were in my opinion fun to use so I recommend this game.
