AusGamers has reviewed Assassin's Creed: Unity and writes:
"All these things are unlocked, purchased and upgraded with the Francs, Synch Points, Creed Points and Helix Credits collected along the way. Ample quantities of these currencies and points are attained in due course in the ways you’d expect and I never felt held back by it at all. It’s really unfortunate then to see the presence of microtransactions offered to fast track the game... While customisation items still need unlocking, revealing the mission locations and collectibles will significantly fast track those wanting to use that route. I’m not sure why anyone would though. As someone who’s never used microtransactions, the ideas of them being available to fast track the rich exploration and discovery process available in this game really seems out of place."
