I played syndicate (my first assassin's creed game) and enjoyed it enough that I want to play another one. is this a good one? how about unity?
Black flag gets very repetitive. Don't listen to these fags who say it's a great game. Each island you visit, you do the same side quests, literally the same side quests. And do you know how many islands there are in the game? Many. Ship parts cost a lot so your ship upgrades at a very slow pace. You have to upgrade everything onnypur ship, and there are levels of upgrades. Good luck on that. Don't even try to get into ship battles because you're gonna die.
>under any circumstance
Mediocre boat combat, some if not the worst cities in the franchise tied with AC3, and lackluster overarching story.
Then you add the mediocre AC combat ontop of that and Black Flag only having bush stealth and there is no reason to play it if you play Syndicate.
They always add layers to the mediocre base game, so why the fuck would you play the new one then go back to the lesser games?
Take the french revolution, sprinkle it in gorgeous graphics and a helluvalot of marketing and you get a buggy ass game where they half-ass the story, make a love interest the MAIN SIDE CHARACTER that does nothing but loathe about how it's taking so long for her revenge to be complete.
It was a very clear "Baby don't go, it'll be better!" game. I haven't played either, so I'm not sure if Rogue, Syndicate, or some future game will be the "should have been 4" of the series.
I think Unity has the best city and best assassinations, Syndicate has the best gameplay overall, combat was kinda bleeh.
Unity's map was big enough to not be a chore. Syndicate is actually too fucking big, forcing so many moments of the shitty carriage just like BF uses the shitty boat.
AC1 has the best story, mainly because the Desmond section was the only present-time section in the entire franchise that wasn't god awful. AC2/Ezio was the best character.
3 had the best combat, Connor was fun to play as because of his style and weapon variety.
Revelations was probably the only game that didn't offer anything at all.
This literally could've been the III of the series.
The problem with Syndicate as well is that they have all these buildings and open pubs and you don't have any interaction with them. It's like going through Just Cause: London but without the physics gimmicks or killable civillians.
Pretty comfy to roam around though.
Not really that deep since the combat is pretty boring. You can beat the game without using any other updated sword simply by spamming medicine and smoke bombs. Snipers are deadlier, I'll give you that.
Unity has a lot of good ideas. Unpolished, sadly.
Let me tell you why III sucks
Its because no one like native americans and the american war of indepence theme was a huge jackoff to americans, but no one else in the planet feels connected to the event (minus brits, but they get killed in the game)
>You don't have to use those items
I had to in my vanilla walkthrough. Goddamn bulletsponges and stunbombers made blow 10,000 frenchbucks a sequence. Yes, I wouldn't mind if I never really have to use them but several other missions requires such.
Actually III sucks because it suffered too much of the forest gump syndrome while making Connor less appealing. I liked Connor, but he's not for a wider audience, nor was he handled as good as I hoped.
1 is repetitive
2 is only good coming from 1
Brotherhood is a better 2
I don't remember Revelations
3 is fucking shit
4 is a massively improved 3
2 > Brohood > 1 > Revelations > 4 > 3
It honestly failed to captivate me, and I was really looking forward to it. A return to form, improved assassination missions, new combat that wasn't counterkill-based, cosmetics and shit, and even gorgeous graphics.
It just didn't deliver in a lot of things it promised. Maybe if they took another year off, they could've tweaked it better. Here's to hoping the dev leak that no AC this year is true and they work hard on Egypt
The only things I remember about Rev
>the cinematic opening
>the cool as shit default grey outfit
>the tower defense
>the hookblade has two parts
Ezio meets Altair
Didn't wow me as much as 2 and Bro did, then 3 killed the series, then 4 was on sale and it was pretty good
I swear to god though, the fucking hat is KILLING ME. PARKOURING THROUGH THE AIR AND IT'S STILL GLUED TO HIS HEAD.
The one time where the rain looks damn good and you can't keep the hood up without going through a glitch.
It was a disappointment, but it's my ACRogue of before. I just had fun exploring it, taking my mind off IRL stuff and just letting the comfy roll through my steaming head. As a whole game, it's mediocre, but as an escape to fiction, it immersed me well enough.
>enable big mouth cheat in IV
>Doesn't speak most of the time
Dammit. Ah well, at least Shay's VA seemed to have enjoyed doing that.
>THIS...IS MY DOMAIN...
>Give me a hand! (Ledge Assassination) Whoops, nevermind...
Yeah, I feel like AC is like that in general. I didn't find Black Flag that interesting despite it being a good game. I was really bored throughout the game, Yet, I had fun with Unity. The think the AC games are too personal.
