Fans have collated Ubisoft’s answers to questions from Twitter about Assassin’s Creed Unity, including information about combat, the cooperative missions, and the scope of the game.
They've removed Chain Combat??? Oh well done! just remove the best most satisfying feature in the games. Why can't we just have the option to choose how to go by dangers? It's restricting the game to make it feel like a tech demo. In Watch_Dogs, you can't use melee combat on civilians but you can shoot them in the head!? Why am i not surprised, it's still apart of Ubisoft.
the old combat with countering and chains made it way to easy and was pretty stupid the way guards sat there waiting for you to stab them in the back/throat. I'm not saying it wasn't satisfying because it was fun to kill an entire group of guards without getting hit, but it made the game way to easy and with co-op it would be far easier.
Everyone complaining about the combat being too easy and your here complaining about them making it harder. Ubi can't win.
Poor Ubisoft. I'd hate to have to please all these picky gamers.
I'm not usually picky. I don't have as much time as i used to for gaming, i like open world games that let you bop around having fun, either easy or hard. Look at Assassin's Creed 3 or Burnout Paradise for example. I understand that i sound like a whiny little brat, i do. I'm not whining because of the change, i'm whining because they don't give me the option to choose. I regret calling out Ubisoft because Watch_Dogs has actually been my favourite current gen game up to now. The reputation system gives the game a flaw for me and the bit about not being able to knock civilians out. The game with the most choice is always GOTY, The Last of Us for example.
The best franchise in the moment.
