Sure, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was a great game on its own, but it’s hard to hold it in the same regard as Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood. Assassin’s Creed III had already left a bad impression on some gamers, so it was going to take something exceptional to get people to love the series the way they once did.
Along comes Assassin’s Creed: Unity, with its great emphasis on co-operative gameplay. I’m knee-deep into the experience already, and the feeling is much like playing Assassin’s Creed II for the first time. Read on to learn the good and the bad.
