Ubisoft set out to re-create the series with Assassin's Creed: Unity and they've managed it with flying colours. A rich story with an impressive amount of content coupled with some of the best visuals on display thus far make Assassin's Creed: Unity a must buy for any fan of the series, or just the open-world genre in general. It has its shortcoming, though they're few and far between, enough so that they're almost negligible.

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. Le freerun s'avère également fluide bien qu'encore perfectible, tout comme le système de combat certes plus exigeant mais dont on fait rapidement le tour. Vous n'êtes plus l'Assassin qui fait la loi en ville mais redevenez une lame parmi d'autres au sein d'une foule dense, un point sublimé par le nouveau système d'infiltration nettement plus convaincant. Malgré un scénario sans grand génie et quelques impairs techniques dont des ralentissements plus importants que sur Xbox One (surprenant), Assassin's Creed Unity reste un excellent cru qui oriente le gameplay de la série sur le bon chemin et vous occupera de très nombreuses heures devant votre écran.

In seinen schönsten Momenten liefert die Engine atemberaubende Stimmungen und Panoramen, ein erschreckend genaues Abbild der revolutionären Gräuel oder einfach nur ein vor Leben berstendes Paris. Aber es tun sich hier auch die schrecklichsten Momente der Technik auf, wenn die Bildrate in den Keller geht oder man von Bugs gepeinigt wird, die auch vom Day-1-Patch nicht behoben wurden. Zudem schleppt man in Bezug auf KI sowie einigen Automatismen immer noch Altlasten mit, die seit dem Auftritt Altairs stören. Mit den aufgezwungen wirkenden und omnipräsenten, wenngleich komplett optionalen Mikrotransaktionen (Pay-to-Shortcut) oder Companion-App-Verknüpfungen tut sich Ubisoft ebenfalls keinen Gefallen. Einerseits habe ich so viel Spaß mit Unity wie schon lange nicht mehr mit einem Assassin's Creed. Aber ich habe mich auch schon lange nicht mehr so über einen Vertreter der Serie geärgert, die bis dato auch durch hohe Produktions-Standards glänzte.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is easily the most beautiful Assassin’s Creed game thus far. It is also the most packed, both with population and content. However, strip that away and the core game is almost unchanged, with just a few adjustments here and there, and unfortunately buggy at the moment. For Assassin’s Creed fans, it really is a no-brainer despite the bugs and glitches, many of which will hopefully be repaired in time. Assassin’s Creed Unity is a good game, but it is just not the revolution, or evolution, that fans were perhaps expecting.

If you are big fan of the series and want to see what a good graphical setting for the franchise could do, then I strongly encourage you to pick this up but I warn you aside from the gorgeous environments, this to me is the worst one in the franchise. Although it has it’s moments of epicness, it falls really short on story which is the main reason to play the Assassin’s Creed games. The foundation of what they were trying to do is there but it was really executed poorly. Hopefully the next title for the PS4 and Xbox One can fix the mistakes of Unity.

Nivelul2 (Nov 26, 2014)
Un oraş superb şi un subiect istoric excepţional, prea puţin exploatate pe parcursul campaniei. Povestea şi personajele principale sunt şterse, iar modul co-op nu funcţionează în parametri optimi. Cât despre mecanicile stealth şi parkour, aceastea nu mai reprezintă deloc un punct forte în Assassin's Creed Unity, din cauza nenumăratelor buguri. Poate că un viitor patch de 40GB va rezolva erorile prezentului.
