My System Specs

Default Assassins Creed: Unity

Anyone else playing this game? I recently got it and man is it a system killer. It looks good, but I don't think it looks nearly as good as the GPU/CPU the it requires.

Still tweaking my settings to get the most out of my hd 6950 (unlocked and OC'd).

What settings are you running, and with what GPU? What do you think of the game?

I was waiting on reviews and going to wait for a sale but the noise surrounding this game is really really quite terrible, I'd be interested in your opinions on it and if it should reappear on my radar down the road. I kind of got bored with Assassins Creed after 2 I think, played and did enjoy the pirate one a bit but mostly the ship stuff and don't think I actually finished it.

Got 10 minutes into the game before it completely hard locked my PC after a cutscene. I already don't have any desire to play the game anymore. Ubisoft can suck a giant bag of dicks for their crap games.

if you didnt finish black flag, i would honestly say dont bother with this, i am a assassins creed fan boy, and this game is frusterating to me almost to the point ac3 was at first (causing a second play through just to get the story). its a beautiful game but wait for the fixes to make it smooth, then get it

AC:BF breathed life back into basically a dead franchise...and AC:U shat it all out, dug a hole, and buried the franchise in it again. What a POS...and its not like its Crysis level graphics, just a shody port!

Did the newest patch that came out fix it at all?

The patch fixes SOME of the issues but certainly not all. At least folks have faces (for the most part) now.

Honestly, I'm still playing Black Flag. What a game that was! I'm totally addicted to fighting those legendary ships. I only have two one left but still so much more of the world to explore.
