Unity Could Breathe New Life Into Assassin's Creed Stale Formula

Rich Drummond of Gaming Tech United writes:

"I’ve always been a fan of the Assassin’s Creed series. Something about traversing the rooftops, stalking targets and killing enemies in a stealth fashion is something that I find very enjoyable. Although I have fun with the series, many people say that it’s formula has grown stale and I have to somewhat agree with them. The newest installment aims to change that, as it adds a cooperative functionality to the campaign. Will this change be enough to revitalize the series to many gamers? Let’s take a look."

Milk went sour after Assassins Creed 2

I have to disagree. Although III wasn't all that entertaining, I feel that IV was actually a fun experience.

Although fun is all about the individual playing and I can't tell you what's fun. I respect your opinion either way though. :)

AC4 is a good game, it's just a shit Assassins Creed game

It's a game you play and enjoy but get to the end and think "This should of been a new IP".

The thing which spoilt it the most was the fact they did this "Your playing a video game inside a video game" and they've made the Animus a video game franchise tool. It's a tad corny and the first person present day setting sections are worse then Desmonds.

It's like they've just ditched the whole Juno story. We got one section of her in that game.

Why didn't they just end it at AC3 where she doesn't become free but Desmond manages to save the world and keep her imprisoned. Least then we wouldn't have much of a reason to keep coming back to the present day.

We really should of played as Desmonds father or mother, they would at least finish the fight Desmond sacrificed his life for.

They really should of made Black Flag a new IP and this should of been AC4. It's weird how they called that "Assassins Creed 4" but this game is just "Assassins Creed: Unity".

I personally think IV is better than II

Master-H1613d ago

For me the series took a nose dive after Brotherhood, but IV sorta revived it.

imo this could be the best Assassin Creed game to date.. If you already watched the demo on YT, you will see that there's a lot of AI's moving on the town, yet maintaining the descent framerate and visuals. I think Ubi have already achieve the best open world game for this generation.

The Parkour Down feature is one of the more exciting new features for me. Before, it would be an inconvenient climb down into the crowd or having to jump into a hay stack.

With this, climbing down can be just as fun as climbing up.

Also, loads of interior buildings in the game = VERY GOOD YES.

Now we can feel more assassiny by infiltrating into entire buildings with many different entries.

NinjaRichParty1613d ago

Didn't they say something like one in every three buildings will be accessible? That's a crazy high number considering how many buildings the maps will feature.

I also completely agree about the traversal. Seems like they've put in a lot of work in terms of how the player moves. Seems like it's all for the better as of now!

Black Flag was pretty good.

ShaqSoda1613d ago

I didn't like Black Flag because it just did not feel like go in sync with the other ACs. You are just some random pirate and some other bs. Unity will not let down.
