Mick Fraser: "I’m not entirely blown away by Assassin’s Creed: Unity.
I’ve been a fan of Assassin’s Creed since the original release in 2007 and have since owned and played every successive console title. I haven’t finished them all (I didn’t particularly enjoy III), but I’ve played more than my share of Assassin’s Creed games in the last seven years, it’s safe to say.
For me, the only one that really broke the mould was Black Flag. More a pirate game with assassins than the other way around, Edward Kenway’s seafaring adventure was thrilling and expansive and downright gorgeous all at once, and the ship-to-ship battles and huge, open world elevated it far above what had gone before; in my opinion, even farther than fan-favourite Assassin’s Creed II."
