Assassin's Creed Unity review - Gameinformer

"At first, I didn’t like Assassin’s Creed Unity much. As a longtime fan of the franchise, the early hours chafed against my sense of what an Assassin’s Creed game should be. Unity is a dramatic departure from what came before in controls, combat, navigation, progression, and difficulty. However, the more I let go of the idea of what it should be, the more I could enjoy it for what it is. Unity is a fresh start, and while many new features lack polish, the game is massive, the story is sophisticated, and the missions are open-ended. It doesn’t get everything right, but Unity is the first step toward revamping a franchise in increasing need of new ideas."

That score seems very generous for what is almost universally slated as being severely broken on all formats.

Where's that guy who was complaining last week that DriveClub was such a mess they were trading it in for ACU, I warned you, I hope you listened!
At least the core game of DriveClub is pretty much bug-free (only the online element had issues).

Yes it's strange that he even mentioned the game freezing up a couple times.

"Moreover, bugs run rampant through the cooperative missions, from minor issues with animations to game-breaking inabilities for players to draw and use weapons."

8/10 for a game where at times it is so bugged you can't draw your weapon?

I seriously think nobody should be pre-ordering any games at all at the moment, big budget titles are failing to meet expectations and having serious issues.
I'm not even going to pre-order GTA 5 (even though its probably the safest bet going atm). It simply isn't worth the risk as far as I'm concerned.

IF you heard 100 comments about the "problems" with AC:Unity, only about 20 of them are true.

The other 80 are people out right lying or just jumping on the hate bandwagon...

It's a solid game so far.....nothing great...but not crap either.

According to these reviewers, the only game I should be playing is cod aw. Somehow, that doesnt sit right in my tummy.
