"I guess I should say gameplay!" Pontibrand told ArabicGamers when asked what he's most impressed with."

Interesting.Because gameplay is what matters most in a video game.

Surprised you got a disagree. Even with non-gamic interactive digital media, the systems by which the user interacts with the media are of at least equal importance to any other element of the media itself.

Anyway, I haven't disliked a single AC game yet... but I can't imagine Unity being anything but repetitive and bland. Each AC game so far has brought something new and exciting to the basic formula:

AC1 gave us big cities and wilderness roads to explore.
AC2 gave us big cities, small towns, and rural areas to explore.
AC3 gave us big cities and expansive wilderness areas to explore.
AC4 gave us towns, jungles, islands and oceans to explore.

And Unity goes back to just having a city.

I don't know. Maybe they'll do some cool stuff--let us roam the French countryside. Let us use vehicles like boats, horses and carts in the city. Have destructible environments. Or something, anything that will feel new and fresh. But so far all they've shown off as the "new" thing is seamless integration with interior areas--which is something they've advertised to varying degrees with every AC game since Brotherhood.

Unity gives you co-op gameplay, stealth-mechanics, parkouring down, ...

but mostly, a city that is actually big. With buildings that are actually high. Crowds that are actually vast.

And the interiors is going to be one building in every four, which is unlike any AC game before.

That said, it's AC, apart from black flag, they've always felt like expansions on the same game rather than new ones.
