Assassin's Creed Unity review
by Kaimynas

I played all the mainline AC games (besides Rogue) up until Unity, and after this one, I am completely burned out of AC formula. This game is very beautiful, color pallet, art direction and overall atmosphere of Paris are superb. But for me, it fails in all other parts like:
. Controls. The biggest strength of this game - freedom, is it's the biggest weakness, the main character jumps and runs on everything but not where you want him to. 
. Story and characters. For me, I found overall plot very disappointing, another meaningless war between Assassins and Templars, another revenge story added into the mix. Another cocky long haired main character who becomes a bit more mature as the time goes. Another set of uninspiring characters. 
Gameplay. This is the biggest issue for me.  All the missions are the same as in all the previous games, tailing, assassinating, running from enemies etc, if it would be my first AC game maybe it would be a different story, but right now it's same old game, just in a different setting. 

Overall I felt disappointed with this game, though I can't wait to try this series newest additions where they seemed to have changed most of the issues I had with it.

There are some Positives as well as a very big negative Part to tell about this Game. Let's start: Positive:-very nice setting-Graphics really well done and beautiful to look at-Storytech can do quite a bit-liquid climbing (mostly)-co-op mode-various Adaptations of the Character negative:-frequent FPS drops and ruckler in excess (1-3 Seconds of standstill of the Image)-no longer present a Side Story as usual in all AC parts (see Desmond)-The End (my Opinion ^^, there is still air upwards. Like Mass Effect, just different)-Monotone Mission sections (usually only just track down and eliminate)-You can't start a new Game (see again)-Diverse Bugs in Co-op mode (e.g. invisible Enemies kill you)-Some boxes can only be opened if you The App plays for it (100% sync Adieu) As you can see it has some pros and Cons. But you know that all too well from the other AC parts. I don't want to dwell too much on the Story not to Spoiler, because everyone should take their own Picture. Despite all the Mistakes, Bugs and other Things, I would still recommend this Game because it is Fun. It is not as extensive as AC: Black Flag is still a Playable. I expected a lot and didn't get that much for it but that's fine. The Co-op mode is a lot of Fun when you play it with Friends, because it's quite annoying when an Unknown goes in full in a Sneak Mission, dies and you have to Start it all over again. I find The Combat System very successful. Finally no more butchering where Hordes of Opponents storm at me and I do without a Batting To shrug all away. From as little as 4 Opponents you have to Think carefully Whether Fighting or Escaping. Well, everything in llem troeable a Game that I can recommend because I follow the AC parts with a lot of zeal. On the Problem with the new Game Score: First, you need to turn off the Cloud on Uplay. To do this, just go on Settings and remove the top ticking. You then have to access the Ubisoftordner and "savegames" there. If you Have multiple speciation games, you search the folder with the more recent Files (just look at the Date) and delete them completely or drag it to a stick to secure it. Have you done this you can start the Game happily all over again. That was mine and for Spelling Mistakes my Lankers nech ^^ Mfg Fisoduck

Ok, after about 10 Hours of AC Unity, I give my Review here after holding BACK several times as I didn't want to get AC down the way I'm About to. I played ALL AC games, some with more, some with less fun, but all were interesting, built on a good Engine and were able to entertain me a bit even after I played through the Story. But then Came Unity: + The New Engine certainly looks great, of course it doesn't draw a lot of Resources, but:-almost all Movements, Jumps and Sword attacks LOOK totally unnatural And Don't like MIR. -There are almost an infinite Number of Side missions, all of which are damn uninteresting and without which it is difficult to continue playing the Main Story, since you:-SKILLS KUY?! You first have to exchange Assassin Points to carry out Double Attacks? Is this their ERNST?? What's next? 1 Unit of Money per amount of Money on the go?? Impossible. EVERYTHING is monetized. "Hopping points" are supposed to make it easier to get expensive Swords etc, but can you get relatively few Hopping points in the Game itself, the others? NATURLICH BEI UPLAY GOOD € € BUY! After DLCs, is this coming now? WOW as if your greedy Vulture Pack doesn't already deserve enough with the actual Game! -The Memory Points are a Joke. In all previous AC Games there were always memory points during individual Sequences or Reminders, so that you didn't have to run completely from scratch again. In this Aspect, Too, Ubisoft got everything wrong in Unity that could only do it wrong! Whether you play for 20 Minutes and are killed by the "Boss" of Memory or fall off the Roof right at the Beginning, YOUR LANDET WIEDER AM ANFANG. W.I.E.S.O.? -I don't know if I'm vllt limited, or haven't grasped all the Features yet, but I haven't found a Way to pick out the normal hidden Blade as a Weapon. No, you can fight with your Degen. -Medicine. Cursed old Medicine is making its Comeback, from the early AC Parts. I hated it, I thought Ubisoft has learned, in the later Games health was replenished when you were out of the Danger zone. -The Assassin Costume is also a Joke. In the past it was all about going down as discreetly as possible in the Crowd, but Arno runs through a greyish Paris in bright bright bright bright Colours (Which you can choose, juhu + Dot). -Bugs are also a Pair again, but I can't say that there are an excessive number. I could cite even more, but I think my Basic Idea has come across. If you really want to play the Story ok, but otherwise FINGER WEG.
There are better Assassin Creed games for sure.
Assassin's Creed Unity are amazing game created by Ubisoft. This artwork will immerse you in the exciting world of revolutionary France.
Playing for Arno Dorian you will join the brotherhood of Assassins.
In Paris you are waiting for a lot of interesting content. Numerous stories with the requests of famous residents of Paris, the mysterious mysteries of Nostradamus, the investigation of crimes, and, of course, the towers! And don't forget abount co-op missions.
The most important thing is a smart storyline that will not leave anyone indifferent.
This game is a masterpiece, which I highly recommend to everyone who loves games.
