Ubisoft has been no stranger to controversy with this game, I mean, surely you remember the whole business over the female characters and all, but if there’s one area where we can move away from simple opinions and get closer to some fact it’s frame rate. As we know Assassin’s Creed Unity runs at 30fps, (and also 900p, if you care), but the game has released as a technical mess, unable to hold a stable frame rate, which is a big part of the reason the game has got ire from the community and mixed critical reception.
"However, I’m not here to discuss the review embargo or the frustrations involved in a game releasing in such a state. I’m here to tell you why Ubisoft actually dug itself a hole with Assassin’s Creed Unity, and made quite a substantial joke of itself."
