(WGB) Assassin’s Creed: Unity Review – One Small Stab For Mankind

Baden of WGB: "Although I adored Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag there was no denying that the core mechanics of the series were falling apart, the once glorious parkour and stealth systems laboring to remain remotely relevant in a world where such things have been done so much better. Sailing the high seas was fun, but Assassin’s Creed needed to die and be reborn."

Does anyone else see a problem with giving a game high reviews when it's filled with game breaking glitches? Someone's being paid off and it sure as hell ain't the people who pay 60 dollars for this game.

That's fair enough, but at the end of the day, we buy the game to play it. As far as I have read, there aren't any real "game breaking glitches", only stuttering frame rates and graphical glitches.
I've heard enough about the technical issues from numerous websites. I now want to hear how the game plays and what the story is like, because that is what keeps me coming back to Assassin's Creed.

It's a good point.

The tricky part comes when someone like myself, who actually wrote the review, didn't have too many problems. I can't write about something I didn't experience.

At the same time, that doesn't excuse the developers or deny the existence of the problems. Clearly there's problems for a hell of a lot of people, especially with PC.

On my end I most just got some NPC pop-in, and framerate drops, but the drops weren't overly frequent and didn't hit during combat or other potentially really bad moments.
I did hit a few glitches like getting caught up in the scenery, but again it didn't strongly affect my own enjoyment.

While bribery does happen within the industry, don't always make the assumption that it's the cause of a score you don't agree with.

In the end I pondered a lower score, but when with the higher while trusting and hoping that the text would explain that score and justify its existence.
