Venture Beat - 91/100
I was not expecting to love Unity, but I do. Ubisoft nailed the big assassination missions and everything in between.
Game Informer - 8/10
Inordinately long load times, repeated onscreen notifications, and a couple of hard freezes prove that Unity is a complex game that hasnt yet had all of its bugs smashed. However, Unitys frequent missteps are balanced against an astonishing array of engaging content set in a stunning world.
Official Xbox Magazine - 8/10
Glosses over the changes and additions made in Black Flag, but it's more than deserving of recognition. The skill and attention to detail make this hugely accomplished, if flawed. It's a return to Brotherhood - but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
GamesRadar - 4/5
Beautiful visuals, a likeable Assassin, and fully customisable skills and equipment: youll spend months on your virtual trip to the French Revolution. Mind your head.
IGN - 7,8/10
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 Assassins Creed universe costs it momentum and excitement, and the persistent control problems are still a thorn in its side.
Gamespot - 7/10
It's very good, maybe even great in places, but the story's smaller focus has come at the expense of its exquisitely rendered backdrop. The grandness and spectacle that so often graces the finest Assassin's Creeds is sadly sorely lacking here.
Polygon - 6,5/10
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 release. Combined with an uninspiring story, and a long list of considerable technical problems, Unity falls short of the fresh start Assassin's Creed needs.
EGM Now- 6,5/10
Unity follows in the original Assassins Creeds footsteps in many ways as the first game in the series developed exclusively for the new generation of consoles. And, much like its ancestor, for every good thing Unity does, it adds something else that just leaves you scratching your headgiving the whole experience a hit-or-miss feel that we havent seen from the series in a long time.
Joystiq - 2,5/5
Assassin's Creed Unity is the best and worst of Assassin's Creed. It's hard not to appreciate everything that it gets right, and you'll have a good time if you can wrangle some friends for co-op, but it's impossible to ignore where Unity falls tragically short.
