Assassin's Creed Unity Review | IGN

Assassin’s Creed Unity leverages the new-generation consoles to add spectacular new sights and successful co-op multiplayer, but in doing so, it’s created some substantial new problems instead of solving the series’ most persistent ones. The scope is stunning, the customization is satisfying, and the multiplayer touches upon some really ambitious ideas. But the lack of a strong main character or interesting take on the Assassin’s Creed universe costs it momentum and excitement, and the persistent control problems are still a thorn in its side. The first truly new-gen Assassin’s Creed game is a gorgeous, entertaining, and successful proof of concept for what lies ahead for the series, though it isn’t what I’d call revolutionary.

Its a shame it looked interesting , Ubi seriously need to work on those damn protagonists , first Watch Dogs and now Unity.

I am liking Arno wayyyyy more than Connor and Edward lol

DarkOcelet1407d ago

But he doesnt even come close to Ezio , i mean come on , they had an intersting setting , why cant they have an interesting protagonist like Snake , Drake , Ezio , Joel , Lara , Alice . They seem to be very lacking in that department i mean Connor , Edward , Jason Brody , Arno , Aiden Pearce, they all sucks. They need to work on that.

Yea but games like Tomb Raider, Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid dont need to create a hit iconic character every game....Tomb Raider already has that they only need to come up with a story to fallow that character, same with the others you listed.

Assassins Creed has to try and come up with an Iconic and unique character to star in the game...every game...its not that easy to do and they are not all gonna be winners, especially if you release a game every year....and sometimes 3 games lol

Let the Skyrim modders at it and it will be an interesting game in 4 weeks.

ign fails to give vital informations again, as they didn't even mention bugs and glitches ONCE!

vric1407d ago

Most review I have seen so far doesn't talk much about these problem either..

Christopher1406d ago

IT's about ethics in game journalism?

But, yeah. This is a long time issue with game reviews. They don't mention the glitches. I understand them being told by Ubisoft and other publishers that "it is a known issue that will be fixed by a day one patch" or the like, but in this case they could have checked if it was true since it was posted on the day of release.

Game has awful frame rate problems!

Malphite1407d ago

What platform are you playing on? Is the frame rate low all the time or does it jump?

If you're playing on PC could you post your specs and settings you're playing on?

Most reviews I've read barely give information on the performance of the game.

PlayStation 4, it happens now and again, enough that it's noticeable.

Deividas1406d ago

Lets see im playing on PC, well was playing on PC, not anymore.

FX-8370 @4.0Ghz
MSI Gaming 970 Mobo
MSI R9 280X 3GB Crossfire
Corsair 750w PSU

I get about 28fps average on medium-high settings and on 900p. Gets as low as 21 and can get as high as 38 at some points. The game is shoddy as hell. I had to stop playing because the framerate is beyond atrocious.
