"From a multicultural team of various faiths and beliefs comes the same formulaic Assassin's Creed experience." ~ Honest Game Trailers - Assassin's Creed Unity
From a multicultural team of various faiths and beliefs comes the same formulaic Assassin's Creed experience that you can finally share with your friends. Wheeee! We're having fun, guys... Right?
Assassin's Creed: Unity
Because Arno, yet another smelly European Batman with the power to see about-to-be-dead people. He's the first hero in the franchise to sort of question the morality of his top-secret murder cult -- but who murders his way through the French Revolution anyway! All for noble cause of seeing if the carpet matches the drapes! [Arno: "Sorry that I care more about you than about killings Germain!"] Liberté, égalité, the new gay.
Settle in for the most Assassin's Creed-ass Assassin's Creed games since Revelations with the same roof running, smoke bowing, and hay-diving gameplay you know and love -- or are getting pretty much sick of al this point! [Drunk Arno throws an empty bottle on the floor] Only this time with slower parkour, every asshole in Paris packing a gun, and glitches that will haunt your nightmares for years to come! [Floating eyeballs and teeth] ARGH!
Journey to a time and place that's still not feudal Japan for some reason. As you team up with famous figures like the Marquis de Sade, weirdly tall Napoleon, this guy that you should know from history class but don't, and the only Black guy in Paris! To join the French version of The Crips and kill everyone wearing red on sight!
After the refreshing originality of Black Flag, return to the phoned-in Assassin's Creed storyline you've come to expect, where one of the most exciting and dramatic eras in history is used as a fancy backdrop for the same revenge plot for AC3. But hey, at least this one's super light on the Abstergo stuff! Can we just cut the whole game-within-the-game bullcrap already?
Clear your calendar for yet another map packed to the brim with site objectives, where you'll perform assassinations, read things, and manage an empire of snooty social clubs -- until you finally have enough money to buy that hot new hood you've been wanting. Très bien, girlfriend!
So strap on your wrist blades and get ready to take on the Templar one more time -- or don't! Because we're gonna give another one of these buggy, microtransation-fueled chore-fests every year until the end of time! Now, who's excited for Syndicate? …. No...? …. Nobody...? But it has Karl Marks and everything....?
Starring: Ezio Altair (Dan Jeannotte as Arno Dorian); The Girl From Brave (Catherine Bérubé as Élise de la Serre); Young Geoffrey Rush (Alex Ivanovici as Donatien Alphonse François, Marquis de Sade); Napoleon Dynamite (Brent Skagford as Brigadier General Napoleon Bonaparte); Captain Pisspot (Anthony Lemke as Pierre Bellec); and A Whole Bunch of Fat Old French Guys (Harry Standjofski as Honoré Gabriel Riqueti, Comte de Mirabeau, Ivan Sherry as Le Roi des Thunes, and Unknown as Louis-Michel le Peletier, Marquis de Saint-Fargeau).
Assassin's Creed: We'll Fix It Later
Okay, why is it that in a game about France made by a French developer everyone all has English accents? I mean, come one! Where all the French voice actors busy or something?

Honest Game Trailers - Assassin's Creed Unity has a 98.5% approval rating from YouTube viewers. Zachery Bennett of Entertainment Buddha wrote that Honest Game Trailers writers "mask[ed] their naturally brutal honesty with joke after joke." Bennett also noted, "Those familiar with Ubisoft’s gem should undoubtedly be aware of each iteration’s recurring issues and concerns about stagnation in the series. Smosh is not afraid to tackle these topics, making fun of the series’ flaws with a jovial approach. Personally, the “announcement” of Assassin’s Creed: We’ll Fix It Later at the end really got a chuckle out of me."
