Assassin’s Creed as a series needs an overhaul, and it needed it three games ago. Even ignoring my own personal fatigue of the franchise, Unity is still one of the weaker entries of the series. Co-op, while fun, feels half-baked; the game is ultimately meaningless in terms of the series canon because of the lack of focus on the present day story line; and many of the design decisions feel driven by the unwelcome addition of micro-transactions. Better luck next year, I guess.

Despite some minor hiccups along the way this is a great first showing for Assassin’s Creed exclusively on current generation consoles. It makes me excited for how much further the series can evolve as developers truly learn how to get a handle on the hardware. Seven (well eight if we include Rogue) games in to the main series and Assassin’s Creed is showing no signs of slowing down.

For all its hugeness and graphical splendor, Unity is starved for excitement. It's much too concerned with a story that feels confused by itself, wasting potentially interesting allies and antagonists in much the same way that it wastes the rich, violent history of its time period. ...but that co-op alone isn't enough to make up for the myriad other ways in which Unity is deeply, disappointingly deficient.
