2. General Hints & Tips
The game is buggy. It's not polished, it's got some weird design choices, but it's technically a finished game. If you're one to be easily put off by graphical errors, misbehaviors outside of your control, or other mishaps, then you're going to find Assassin's Creed Unity to be a nightmare to complete. Even though it may be several years after its release, it's still not been patched in a way that makes the game what it should have been. This is important to point out here because you'll be dealing with these slight inconsistencies for dozens of hours, and it's best to get this talk out of the way now instead of seeing it peppered throughout the rest of the pages.
Combat mechanics are noticeably bad, and that's saying something for a series that has a history of easy combat mechanics up to this point. You will often not see an enemy attacking you simply because the camera has decided not to give you a more full scope of your surroundings. The game also has minimal to no feedback at all to being at low health; as a result, you can be killed in a stray hit if you're not constantly paying attention to your health bar.
You will climb onto objects without wanting to, and sometimes you may not able to climb the way you want to in certain situations. I have personally had all HUD elements disappear when starting a mission even though the settings were marked to have everything on. Voice clips may freeze for half a second before continuing. Your arms may stretch widely out of proportion if the game decides to move you during an animation, like opening a chest; that movement during an animation obviously shouldn't be happening either.
These are things that I have personally noticed after playing through half of the story after Ubisoft had finished touching this game and does not include the slew of problems I recall upon launch. This is not an attempt to scare you away from playing the game, but is simply a warning for anyone who expects a masterpiece. All of these claims are objective; none criticize elements that someone could have an alternate opinion about. It's very unfortunate that the game turned out like this, but at the same time, it's definitely not an entry that fans of the series should skip.
