So I´m making one thing clear from the start. Assassins Creed Unity is the worst Assassins Creed so far.
Even if you don´t look at the bugs, which are plenty, the story is not good at all. The game only focuses on Multiplayer. Which is a huge improvement since its predecessors. But it has no story about the old civilization what so ever.
!!! Spoiler!!!
So your father is an assassin and dies. You becoming an assassin. hmm. kinda like Assassins Creed 2. Your mentor kinda betrays you and you kill him. You get thrown out of the brotherhood, keep on fighting, kill a view templars and at the end you fight the big boss of the templars in paris. Which suddenly has a artifact weapon.
Your "love" dies and you kill him. You get the artifact weapon. The end.
!!! Spoiler!!!

So this is the story in a nut shell. Climbing is very anoying in unity. You are much faster, if you stick to the streets and just simply run. The side missions may contain a little bit of story, but basically its the same as in all the other assassins creed before. Which is not bad. Its the imense volume of these side missions which make it hard to even use you map. All you see are icons of some side mission. The rewarding of those side missions is questionable. Defend a guy against 3 enemys you get 1500 Livres. Kill an oponent which is guarded by 1000000 soldier and you get 700 Livres?! I´m mostly disapointed by the story, i know from the start, that the game has a lot of bugs, but bugs plus "already-seen-heard-played" story?! well eventhough i only paid 30 € for the game, it was wasted. I don´t know more about the story of assassins creed itself. I just played as some random assassin which is in my perpective not very charismatic.

So if you never played assassins creed, its a funny game. But if you played it from the start, you simply be disappointed. Because it doesn´t matter from which point of view you look at it, the game is simply not in the league as its predecessors. I know that this is mainly caused by the marketing of the game. Because there policy is: Every year 1 assassins creed game has to be released. But with the new posibillities of the next gen consoles and the growing marked and a relatively high standard of a game. This is just not bareable.
If this is the course assassins creed is taking, i´m not really up for it to buy the next releases.

I know this review is kind of emotional, but to get to the point:
the grafic is good.
the multiplayer has improved drastically
movements look nice
playing the game is fun to some extend
roleplaying feeling because of the equipment you can get and combine
the story is not good
there are a lot of bugs
climbing in paris is a pain in the ass
getting fast from point A to point B is only possibly threw running on the ground
not really charismatic characters

So all in all, its not a bad game like E.T. But it is the worst assassins creed which has been made thus far.
