Assassin's Creed Unity (PlayStation 4) Review - Push Square

Push Square: "With Assassin's Creed Unity, there's a great game buried somewhere beneath an unforgivable amount of technical issues, from annoying glitches to frustrating crashes. It's a perfect example of how Ubisoft's insistence to annualise the series has backfired, as it's clearly an unfinished product. While it manages to both refine and add to the franchise's formula with enjoyable co-op, missions that encourage experimentation, and a few accessible RPG mechanics, we simply can't guarantee that your experience won't be plagued by problems both big and small."

Saw it coming, after all these bugs and glitches. the terrible frame rate drops. I guess that's a reasonable score because the game is unfinished nor its polished

Awesome. More people should praise these types of reviews that actually tackle the core of the problems. (And also addresses the positives too)

"Ubisoft's insistence to annualise the series has backfired"

This pretty much sums it up. Not MS forcing or paying for parity. It's all about Ubi rushing these products out to the consumer because they want to be the next CoD.

Why these BIG companies feel they have to run an IP into the dirt is beyond me.

Well that's fine, but I hope this author does a re-review once the game gets patched. People need to know that it has issues now, but we also need to know how good the actual game is once it gets fixed.

5/10 makes sense for a buggy release (like Rome 2 or this), but Unity looks like at least an 8/10 probably a 9/10 once patched.

And from my experience (couple hours) it is a great game. The problem lies on when is it getting "fixed".

spartanlemur1220d ago

I agree. I'm just saying that when people check metacritic scores when deciding whether to purchase or not in next year's summer sale, when it's all fixed, they're going to be looking at a rating which is lower than it should be, taking into account bugs which are no longer present.

At the end of the day, we need reviews which help us, and metacritic scores based on previous bugs do not (just as scores which ignore existing problems do not).

VileAndVicious1220d ago

Ive played around 4 and a half hours or so on the ps4 version...havent run into any glitches yet, other than the occasional frame drop.

As long as they fix that I'm good to go.

starchild1220d ago

The way it runs on consoles is terrible and people are rightly upset about that. But I can't hate the game because it is so much fun and looks amazing and runs well on my PC.

No way. This game deserves the poor reviews for being released essentially unfinished. It's completely unacceptable and the reviews should reflect this.

To hell with ubi. They deserve this game to flop. Afterall the only thing these companies pay attention to is their bottom line.

We as gamers need to stop giving devs a free pass with shit like this. It's becoming an all to common occurrence.

Irrespective of how great the game will finally be after how many patches and weeks/months. Right now at released it is a buggy, laggy POS!

spartanlemur1218d ago (Edited 1218d ago )

When did reviews become about revenge? I thought they were there to help us decide whether or not to buy games.

By all means tear it to shreds now. Just give credit where it is due when they fix it,

Angeljuice1220d ago

Welcome, and good luck (It takes a certain mentality to survive here for any period of time}.
