Welcome to Assassins Creed Unity, a fast pace and stealthy free roam game that throws you into Paris right around the time of the French Revolution. You play as a assassin who's job is to help really get the revolution started and get the city wanting blood. You will rewrite history as you slash down your enemies and sometimes run on rooftops to escape. This big world is your play ground and anything is possible. On your adventure you will come across very cool things from watching a execution to iconic buildings. This game has it all and gives you a really good idea what the French Revolution may have looked like. Everything you come in contact with is unique from the rest for the most part. I find this game extremely fun and addicting especially when you run through the campaign for the first time. Overall this game has everything you would expect from Assassin Creed and is by far one of the most detailed and interactive one from the series. I do recommend this game to people who are a fan of the series for sure.
Assassins Creed Unity has some amazing game play that will keep you busy for hours. This game has so much to offer that there is just so much to do and see in this world. When you start out you will see all the detailed stuff around you and how realistic your character looks. As you progress into the campaign you will start seeing iconic buildings and some pretty cool events happening on the streets of Paris. One of my favorite things was when I first came across a execution and I decided to save the poor women from being beheaded. But if you feel like maybe she deserves her fate then you can instead watch them be executed. This game will keep you entertained for hours and hours, with there being so much to do and see this world is all yours to play in. As you progress through the campaign you will unlock new outfits, weapons, and buildings to purchase and upgrade. This campaign is very good and I personally really liked it a lot. I think the storyline is really good and the game play really makes you feel involved with what the character is doing. There is also multiplayer though for Unity. This multiplayer is pretty fun especially when they added coop missions you can do with friends or strangers does not matter. But these missions involve you and your group to work as a team to complete the mission which can always be anything from assassinating a royal family member to maybe stealing wine. I think the multiplayer is also really fun and have found myself moving towards the multiplayer more and more.
Assassins Creed Unity went way beyond expectations for graphics and completely blew my mind when I saw these graphics. I personally think they are some of the best graphics I have yet to see in a video game and think it will be sometime before another game can one up Unity. This game has so much attention to detail that I would sometimes get lost in the beauty of the my surroundings and how amazing a game can actually look. This game has so much attention to detail no matter where you are at that you will always have something to look at or do. With all the AI in one area at times you would think it might be hard to have no clipping or bad glitches but to my surprise I at one point was looking over at least 200 AI citizens and having to walk between them all. Overall these graphics are a true accomplishment in itself and that because of the graphics this game is one that does stand out from the rest. It is almost like watching a movie.
The controls for Assassins Creed Unity are kinda hard to learn if it is your first time playing the game. Once you have them down though it is easy to remember them by heart. I found the hardest thing to get down was the fighting sense it does really try to involve you which I did like. These controls do fit the game play though very well and do a really good job of making you feel like you are really involved with what is going on in game. If you have issues there are hundreds of tutorials on the controls to help you better understand them. Overall these controls fit the game nicely and I personally found myself really liking them and making me feel like I was in control of every decision I made and everything I did.
This is the latest game of the series of Assassins Creed, I find it to be the most interactive and do recommend picking it up if you have the money for it. It is a good game that has a lot of things for you to accomplish. I personally like the multiplayer a lot too and think the new coop mode is really fun and is like a second small campaign.
