    My guess would me March or April, which is when I expect Rogue to drop on PC.

    I didn't experience any serious technical problems otherwise my review would have been much lower, to be honest.

    Great work on the reviews GC, I've read all the ones since my last post here - they are very detailed and do a great job of looking at the good, the bad and the ugly () of the games. I have pretty much stopped playing AC, but I like the sound of the new combat system you described in Unity as well as the focus on stealth as a bigger part of the game instead of mindless slaughter.

    Yeah the new combat system can certainly make you think twice, especially when five people draw their gun on you at the same time.

    Also, where's my rep? You lie, shanky

    Well you didn't ask for first class delivery so there was the standard waiting period.

    Well, I've been contemplating when to get Unity. I've played all the major pc releases I think, starting with ACI. One or 2 of them on XBoX 360 though. Anways, with recent titles of the series I've usually held off on buying them straight away as I felt they just didn't add enough to warrant the full price. I like going through the story and all, and the game is still very unique and has not yet been dethroned by competitor that tried similar things. I am still enjoying each subsequent release. But already around ACII, Brotherhood and ACIII I got the feel that it is just a repetetive thing altogether and at times the series starts to bore me. I've long stopped trying to max out characters and find even close to all the stuff you can hunt and explore for.
    You mention in your review that you feel this game could have the potential to provide the grounds for a reboot of sorts and mentioned some refreshing combat and mission elements, at the same time you critised the story as flat. Would you, the above taken into account, advise me to get the game sooner rather than later - or to expand my practice to wait till the game dropped to 20-30 bucks? If you could elaborate just a little more on what you found refreshing and what (potentially) bored you, that would probably ease my choice quite a bit

    I want to ask that how is Unity now? Is it worth to buy it now?

    Basically, I liked the changes to the combat and the freerunning, though they take a bit of getting used to at first. Combat is certainly more difficult now than it has been since (I would argue, at least) the first game. But once you get the hang of it and start learning how to counter enemies (not necessarily in the literal sense) it becomes much easier. The emphasis on stealth will also take some getting used to, and if you plan on achieving full synchronization expect a lot of challenges.

    Personally I certainly got my money out of it, but it wouldn't hurt to wait for a while. If you are on PC it would definitely be worth waiting as Rogue comes out soon and that is definitely a must play.

    Beyond that I am not aware of any glitches or other performance issues and if they have been fixed yet.

    What I said above, essentially. I'm not sure if the issues have been fixed so I can't answer on that aspect of whether it is worth it.

    But as for gameplay and such, certainly. But it wouldn't hurt waiting for Rogue if you are on PC.

    Well, sounds to me like I am best going to wait till I can get it for some 30 bucks. And yes, you guessed right, I am most likely going to play it on PC.

    Anyway, thanks very much for the review, very well written!
