Assassin’s Creed Unity PC Review

Assassin's Creed Unity PC Review

Hi guys! Today I will talk about a game that I finished a few days ago, Assassin’s Creed Unity. The reason I played it recently is because of the events that transpired in Notre Dame, Ubisoft decided to give this game for free for a few days and I got the chance to pick it up.

As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

Assassin's Creed Unity PC Review


The story of the game is good, but nothing amazing.


Assassin’s Creed Unity gameplay can be divided into two parts, the parkour and the combat mechanics of the game. The parkour in Assassin’s Creed Unity is greater than it has ever been in the series, even when compared it to the recent Assassin’s Creed Games.

That said there are still some problems with the parkour system like when you want to go through a window, it can be really hard sometimes because your character seems to have a mind of his own and you have to put effort to manage this seemingly simple action. In other words, when the parkour works, it’s beautiful, but when it does not, it’s painful to watch it.

The combat mechanics of the game are like the previous games, heavily based on parrying and nothing too special. If you get one of the swords that have max damage in the game, then you can basically one-shot everyone except if they parry you, in which case you parry back and then one-shot them.

If they gang up on you then throw a smoke bomb and one-shot everyone. If you get one of those swords that have max damage you become a god and they can’t do anything to you no matter how many there are, this makes the game boring because when no one can kill you there isn’t much point in being careful.

In all the main story missions I never felt the need to go sneaky and assassinate everyone, because they couldn’t do anything to me even if I went in guns blazing.

Now if you want to make the game more difficult for yourself then you can go stealthy, but the problem, for me at least, is that the game doesn’t make you want to go stealthy, it doesn’t give you an incentive.

The thing that makes the game truly shine for me is the co-op missions. They are very fun to do, especially if you play with friends. Unfortunately, there is no in-game chat, so you must be friends with the players in your team to chat with them through Uplay.

One advantage of doing co-op missions is that they can help you progress your character easier since they give you XP and money to spend to get some gear.


The graphics of this game are outstanding despite being released in 2014. Paris looks astonishing and real. Special effort was put in making Notre Dame cathedral as close to the real one as possible. The designer team also focused a lot on character appearance.

You can customize your character with many different outfits and use many different colors to dye his clothes. There are also costumes from previous Assassin’s Creed games that you can unlock like Altair’s and Ezio’s and many more. There are also some new costumes that you can unlock that look amazing.

The only problem with the graphics being so good is that the game wasn’t optimized so good for PC, so you will need a very good Graphics Card to play this with at least 60 fps.

Final Thoughts

Assassin’s Creed Unity is a good game, there is no doubt about that. The parkour is the best Assassin’s Creed has ever seen even though it still has some problems and the graphics are beautiful even compared to today’s standards.

One setback for me was the combat in this game, as they did nothing to improve it and it feels pretty one dimensional and repetitive. The game isn’t very difficult, especially if you pick up one of the strongest weapons, and that might be a problem for those that want a real challenge.

I was never stuck at any point in the game and felt the need to grind. I would recommend that you take this game when it’s on a good sale and if you have some friends to play co-op since the story of the game isn’t something that’s truly extraordinary.

Final Verdict

Storyline: 8.8

Gameplay: 6.8

Visuals: 8.8

General Rating: 8.1
