View Full Version : What the game does well in quick points (no story spoilers)

So I know there is tons of complaints about the game. In one short sentence I believe the game does things exceptionally well, but at the same time it has some terrible elements. I am just going to quickly list some stuff that I love about the game and things that should be brought over into future titles. Note these things are to do with the actual game mechanics and nothing to do with the story / characters etc.

- Accessible interiors - absolutely love these. Getting chased so you run up a building and come out the other side is awesome!
- Paris - tons of detail
- Combat - the harder combat is great (apart from gunmen and weird camera issues) Best thing about this is that you can kind of choose the difficulty by choosing low / high level gear
- Feeling like an assassin - chucking down a smoke bomb, hidden blading 4 guys and walking out like a badass has never been done so well. You actually have to think about your approach by using your tools e.g. cherry bombs to lure enemies away, berserk darts to draw attention, having to actually head shot for a 1 hit kill etc etc
- Customization - awesome!
- LOTS of hidden blade animations - in some ways this might be my favourite thing about the game (weird, I know)
- No over the top kill animations like AC 3 and AC 4 had.
- Co-op - when you have a good team, it is awesome.
- Looting actually matters sometimes
- Parkour down is excellent and handy.
- Not many rooftop guards
- Side missions are really fun at times. Great variety as well.
- Tons of collectibles - chests are often guarded in buildings so these are fun.
- Assassinations are handled greatly
- Co-op missions are replayable.
- You look like a total badass
- Lockpicking
- Having to gain skills you would normally have in an AC game (environmental blending, double assassinations etc)
- Better progression
- Districts separated in terms of difficulty
- Good distinction between districts
- You can run up a wall side ways now - this is actually awesome and helps a ton at times.
- The city does feel alive at times.
- Graphics are great
- Awesome viewpoints
- I like the music when you synchronise a viewpoint - reminds me of AC 1.
- Speaking of AC 1, AC Unity draws influence from it - more open assassinations, you actually feel like an assassin, more tense combat etc

Theres probably tons more! If I have missed anything feel free to list any stuff that you really thought was great about the game.
