It's a solid campaign elevated by quality assassination missions and an extraordinary setting that might just push the big number at the bottom of this review into the 80s, but with a big selling point out of operation, a raft of technical issues, performance problems, microtransactions and stilted combat and freerunning systems, Unity—in its current state—can only be considered a failed revolution. What a shame.

The ingredients are all here for a spectacular new standard for the series on Sony and Microsoft's new machines. But in the quest to build something that looked and sounded "next generation," Ubisoft Montreal failed to fix the problems that have accumulated over so many annual releases. Combined with an uninspiring story, and a long list of considerable technical problems, Unity falls short of the fresh start Assassin's Creed needs.

While I was not on board with Assassin’s Creed Unity from the announcement to the moment I started playing, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the level of enjoyment I have consistently had with the title. It all feels like this is my assassin right from the very beginning of the game. While this was not something I have been asking for, I am most certainly excited to see where things progress with future installments.

The scope is stunning, the customization is satisfying, and the multiplayer touches upon some really ambitious ideas. But the lack of a strong main character or interesting take on the Assassin’s Creed universe costs it momentum and excitement, and the persistent control problems are still a thorn in its side. The first truly new-gen Assassin’s Creed game is a gorgeous, entertaining, and successful proof of concept for what lies ahead for the series, though it isn’t what I’d call revolutionary.

If you can put up with the stuttering performance and some comically ridiculous bugs (my favourite was an assassination target moon-walking backwards into my confused assassin’s cavalry sabre) then there’s a decent Assassin’s Creed experience to be found in Unity. The fact that it’s never more than decent makes those glaring technical issues much, much harder to excuse. Despite some good ideas and an entertaining tale, this isn’t a revolution for the franchise.

At times it's glorious, but at the same time frustrating. It can be summed up in those moments when you are trying to craftily slip in through a window to stab a guard in the back of the neck, but instead end up leaping into a courtyard full of soldiers like a clumsy idiot. You will scream, swear and pound your head against the coffee table, and then you'll reload the game, because when it works, it really works.

En las revoluciones o guerras no todo son victorias o derrotas. Unity libra batallas en varios frentes. En narrativa no sale bien parado, y su acabado técnico es lamentable en compatibles, pero al mismo tiempo si obviamos todo ello gana en dinámicas jugables, cooperativo y, sobre todo, ambientación, con un retrato impresionante de la París revolucionaria.

Unity nos propone unirnos a su solo algo renovada contienda con las raíces de siempre, y desde luego el incondicional de la saga no debe pensárselo. ...El fatigado de su fórmula, en cambio, está ante un episodio que, pese a sus mejoras, puede ignorar, que sonará a lo de siempre con nuevo espectro gráfico y ligeros arreglos en jugabilidad. Sin más. Arno se une a La Hermandad para sembrar una semilla que no ha hecho más que empezar -por desgracia no de cero- en la nueva generación.

Der Test von Assassin's Creed Unity war für mich mit einem Wechselbad der Gefühle verbunden. Beim Testevent und mit der Xbox-One-Fassung hatte ich wirklich Spaß, Unity zeigte alle Stärken und Schwächen eines Assassin's Creed, auch wenn es etwas auf der Stelle tritt. Dafür begeisterten mich die tolle Inszenierung, die moderne Technik und das virtuelle Paris. ...Ich habe also wieder etwas gelernt: Rechne stets damit, bei den PC-Fassungen von Multiplattformtitel dein blaues Wunder zu erleben!

Revenir aux bases de la série tout en refondant plusieurs de ses mécanismes était un pari audacieux, réussi avec brio par les équipes d'Ubisoft. Paris est non seulement l'une des plus belles villes jamais réalisées pour un open world, mais elle regorge en plus d'activités annexes scénarisées et d'environnements intérieurs accessibles en grande partie sans temps de chargement.

Assassin's Creed Unity permet enfin à la série de franchir un palier, comme si elle avait attendu la next-gen pour donner sa pleine mesure. Sublimée par un level design à un niveau jamais atteint depuis la naissance de la Confrérie, la Revolution française offre l'occasion de découvrir une ville de Paris d'une richesse visuelle inouïe, même si la promesse de l'E3 n'a pas été complètement tenue.

Sebenarnya game ini tidaklah sejelek apa yang ada di pikiran kamu setelah membaca ulasan lengkapnya. Sepertinya lebih tepat jika mengatakan bahwa Assassin’s Creed Unity, sama seperti game besar Ubisoft yang rilis tahun ini yaitu Watch Dogs, sangat tertutup bayang-bayang promosi, marketing, dan janji yang terlalu besar. Minat gamer yang dibangun Ubisoft untuk game ini amat sangat besar, sehingga ekspektasi orang pun menjadi terlalu tinggi.
