‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ PS4 review

By Steven Cayer, Senior Columnist


It seems like Ubisoft has an Assassin’s Creed quota they need to meet every year, because this year they’ve released not one but two games: Assassin’s Creed: Rogue for the PS3 and Assassin’s Creed: Unity for the PS4.

In Unity, which takes place in Paris during the French Revolution, Arno Dorian is a Frenchman whose father and stepfather get killed by a much greater power. He’s then contacted by the assassin’s creed, which trains him just like every game before. It’s a typical revenge story with next-gen visuals and mechanics.

The visuals are beautiful but only in some scenes, such as when you climb very high towers to open up the expansive map, taking in a 360-degree view of Paris every time. Walking through the densely crowded streets is another example of when you really notice the laziness of the developers. Often you’ll pass through people or even see the same person a few times. This threw me back to the realization that Ubisoft needs to spend way more time on their games.

Unity includes a few new mechanics like much better climbing, tougher combat, and even a whole customization menu where you can buy skills, weapons, and armour. This makes choosing your weapons actually important in how difficult the game is. The biggest overall difference is the wonderfully omitted competitive multiplayer and the awesome addition of online co-op. You and three of your friends can plan an assassination or a heist with many different ways to complete them.

This concept also beautifully blends into the single-player campaign. Every so often, you get a mission to assassinate someone, making you choose how you go about doing so. For example, I chose to steal back the keys of the church and give them to the priest, who then let me walk right in, instead of lock-picking the window to get in.

This game was bold and it had a bumpy start, but I think it’ll ultimately get you where you want to go.

  2. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.

    There’s no doubt that that you should write more about this subject, it may
    not be a taboo matter but usually people do not talk about such subjects.
    To the next! All the best!!

  3. When you feel the need to remember something that has just been said to you, somewhat than making a psychological
    observe-and lacking data—put your finger up, and ask the speaker to pause for
    only a second while I write something down about what you simply said that was crucial
    to me.” It will implement a speaker’s feeling that you just actually are listening.

  5. Article marketing is just not an easy task, but the more somebody practices;
    the higher their articles are planning to perform. For example, if you’ve been seeking a nursing administrative position, your
    summary statement could possibly read, “I have 10 valuable many years of experience as an administrative manager in a large hospital and several years because managing director of the small clinic which included hiring, evaluating, budgeting and providing essential advice about nursing practices as it is needed. The facts are, begetting a huge audience could even backfire and convey in a vast failure.

  6. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
    could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  8. Nel caso la direzione è in sintonia , giudicato importante
    l’interesse avanzerei di aprire un info-point con tutte
    le informazioni che ho raccolto dalle riviste siti come “le Commande”.
    Nel corso degli anni abbiamo aperto varie discussioni in merito e le notizie
    saranno magari per i più, ripetitivi, ma spero di proporre una gradita ai nuovi!|
    Il mio nonno adorava le peonie, e alcune piante,
    ora centenarie, come un grande cespuglio di Peonia ‘Duchesse de Morny’
    si possono ancora ammirare nel parco del Castello di Pralormo.

    Ed è proprio vedendo una di questa piante, in un momento
    di serenità, che è nato l’amore. Nel 1996, grazie anche all’aiuto con un parente, abbiamo avviato la la produzione, partendo da una collezione di peonie
    giunte dal Michigan, una vera novità per noi di San Remo.

    Ora il loro catalogo si è ancora più diversificato e contiene diverse decine e genealogie diverse.!|

    Negli ultimi tempi sto sicuramente progettando di tirare
    su una casa prefabbricata in legno. E’ per questo motivo che ormai navigo molto la rete per raccogliere idee
    e progetti. Ho trovato finalmente quello di cui avevo bisogno.|
