Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings Review

"Some Extra Dead Creed"


After all the issues with the base Assassin's Creed Ubisoft thought it would be great to give everyone the first DLC pack that extends Unity to everyone for free. After playing the extra content which packs a couple boring hours of extra content and a measly two additional coop missions was actually insulting to some degree. The levels feel very recycled in terms of what you're doing and was busy work more than anything in a campaign that had us just running around this small new town. I didn't quite get why Arno was there for really what anything story wise accomplished. There was some bits of psych that dove a bit into what happened after the main story, but it was really a glimpse though it never went into depth with it. There was also a new fancy weapon with a sort of mortar on it which was cool and some puzzles. The story furthermore was somewhat pointless overall and didn't add much to the experience. In regards to the multiplayer there are a sad amount of two more missions to complete with one being a quick heist ripped right from this campaign and another boring guard stance. This took together a total of about twenty minutes and was completely pointless.

The Conclusion

I'm glad this pack is free as I'd feel completely disappointed about this pack as it didn't really add any value to the already alright core game. The game glitches and issues are present from the main game and there were also some terrible bugs that plagued some of the levels. The story is quite a waste of time which doesn't continue anything is just some filler. There were some neat areas present to explore, though a vast majority of the time there was no guidance in what you were doing. Quests felt like they were already done during the main story and it was just recycled here. An awful sad amount of coop extras which were just busy work more than actually adding them and what a waste of time they were. For a game billed as a cooperative experience it continues to show that was indeed a lie. Not excited for future content as I won't be picking it up as I'm sure it'll be just as lackluster.
