Sean Davies of JillSandwich:
Assassins Creed Unity looks far removed from the series’ previous outing, Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag. Gone are the colourful pirates, the sun-kissed beaches, sparse coastal towns and lush jungle paths. Instead, Assassins Creed Unity looks to be hailing back to the series’ roots with closed-in crowded streets, tall buildings and more shades of grey than even E.L. James could muster.
With Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag being one of the highest rated games of 2013 and described as the “best Assassin’s Creed game since 2″, Ubisoft would do well to learn some of the lessons from their adventure on the seven seas when developing any further games in the series. As a reminder, here is a run down of the 5 greatest aspects of Black Flag that should be carried forward into the assassin’s next clash with the templars – Assassins Creed Unity.
