Five ways Assassin's Creed: Unity shows promise... and five ways it absolutely sucks

Dealspwn: "Assassin's Creed: Unity has actually given me a newfound appreciation of AC3. Didn't expect that.

Unity is a game stuffed with contradictions -- for every positive there's a negative, for every step forward there's something that undermines the game and whatever it's trying to do. It's a game that has instilled an enormous sense of ambivalence in me. On the one hand, there are things that I love about it, new elements that I want to see furthered and expanded upon. In some ways it does represent the first in a new era of Assassin's Creed games. On the other hand, however, I'm sort of sick of the sight of it, such are this game's long list of sins."

the whole ac franchise is now total bad,waste of time and money ac1 was the best and original.

Well of course it was original, it was the first one. I don't think you can call it the best. It set a nice ground work and nice atmosphere but lacked variety and things to. I'd say 2 is the best.

Haven't played an assassins creed since the first one which was garbage in my opinion. I'm LOVING Unity. Not sure what all the fuss is about. Read the reviews before you buy a game and maybe you won't get upset.

Reviews in my opinion don't mean anything nowadays, there's so many people doing them that you get to many conflictings outcomes, in my opinion try the game first or watch it on YouTube and if you like the game then get it and can sod off for me from now on.

I'm loving Unity too. I can handle bugs, but the framerate drop is rather terrible. I can unserstand why hardcore gamers are making a fuss, because it is not polished at all.

But it is in my opinion a really good game, almost outstanding if you can overlook its technical faults.

I don't know. The game itself is actually very good. I mean the combat and parkour have definitely been improved, along with the stealth. The problem is with the bugs and glitches, not the actual core game itself. It was an incredibly ambitious title with all the accessible buildings and crowd numbers. If only Ubisoft released it a little bit later without the bugs it may have been considered one of the best AC's.

Gotta disagree with you on the stealth although I agree with your comment. The stealth in this game is absolutely horrible. You can't cut corners, enemies detect you from ridiculous places (try playing a heist by yourself), a crouch button that is basically useless, no lure button, stupidly expensive phantom blades that have ridiculous range and aren't even a guaranteed silent kill. Overall the stealth is still a work in progress.
