Assassin's Creed Unity Reviews

The embargo on reviews for Assassin's Creed Unity is over, so evaluations of the stealth/action sequel are now online, as is a related Consumerist editorial on "3 Reasons Why Video Game Review Embargoes Are Particularly Anti-Consumer." Metacritic currently lists a grand total of zero official reviews for the Windows edition because consoles, so you'll have to look to the PlayStation 4 Reviews (currently an 81 metascore) and Xbox One Reviews (currently a 76 metascore) for answers at this time. Both the console and PC editions of the game have very low user scores, as it seems to suffer performance issues on all platforms, and there are a bunch of threads about this in the Steam forums and the Assassin's Creed forums. We also see word on a day one patch which may impact this, but the only patch notes we've been able to find are in German.

Watch Dogs was a fucking mess. The micro-stutter issues(...)

It was perfectly fine on a GTX 780/i7. Here anyway.

Well, except all the problems with Uplay of course (needed to update but wouldn't be able to, impossible to log in, ... had to wait for hours before moving past the terrible Uplay experience).

Which makes me wonder what little difference may get those game to work or stutter as hell. If you look at the users' opinion on Steam, people with apparently the same hardware are either over the moon or completely frustrated. Though they rarely detail their hardware / software configuration.

Also, Black Flag was on the same engine, though it was probably easier on the textures (but less on poly count?). We didn't see so many bad reports for this version, even on Metacritic.
