Since the other thread died down, I decided to remake a thread for the series in anticipation of Syndicate.


Here you can discuss anything about the series. From any groundbreaking bugs or complaints, to hopes for the future of Assassin's Creed, to just talking about the games in general, this is the place!

Also, you are free to discuss the novels, any spin-offs (From Assassin's Creed: Chronicles to Liberation), any movies (Assassin's Creed Lineage or the future AC movie), or anything else I failed to mention.






I'm currently playing through Black Flag again (probably about my 4th playthrough of it) and I want to 100% it this time. I'm also playing Unity on the side (looking to 100% that as well) and I'm also reading the Assassin's Creed Unity novel, which provides excellent background information and narrative storytelling from both Arno and Elise's perspective.

Here's my preference:

Favorite
AC 4 Black Flag
AC 2
AC 3
AC Unity
AC Brotherhood
AC Revelations
AC
Least Favorite


I really liked the Kenway saga and even though AC 3 had PLENTY faults, I enjoyed the story far more than Unity's.

I haven't played Rogue yet either unfortunately, or Liberation.



Are you planning on buying Syndicate? What do you think about it?


I like the idea of Victorian London a LOT. It shows strong resemblance to Paris's building structures though, but I can get past that. I like the main characters, particularly Evie. I hope we can see some of her gameplay soon. I'm REALLY hoping Syndicate's story will be good, or at least better than Unity's.

I'd really like a story as great as I found AC 2 and Black Flag's to be.

Reviving for Assassin's Creed Origins!

Anyone planning on buying this?

Just preordered and predownloaded my copy so it's all ready to go. Absolutely cannot wait to explore Ancient Egypt.

AC Origins is my favorite game I have on my PS4. I’ve played it VERY thoroughly, completed every location, even gotten every single achievement. I spent money on the season pass and I was very disappointed when they made the Discovery Tour free for people that already had the game. The idea of it is great, but the fact that they made it free...hm. I hope they make more DLC besides The Hidden Ones and Curse of the Pharoahs. I just want my money’s worth out of the season pass. I finished The Hidden Ones in less than 2 days. Very excited for the Curse of the Pharoahs release coming up soon though.

I agree, I LOVE Origins. I have sunk over 90 hours into the game. I'm working my way towards completing all locations, papyrus puzzles, achievements, etc. I'm level 45 at the moment and still enjoying this amazing game.

I really enjoy the Hidden Ones DLC too. I've only done 2 story missions so I haven't done that much, but I'm really excited for Curse of the Pharaohs since the map expansion is huge and I just like that there's much more to do.

I also plan on playing New Game + after doing everything, since I want to experience the story again and see if I like it more (I still enjoyed it, but the pacing was a bit off, and I know I'll like it better if I can beat the story in less time)

I also LOVE Discovery Tour. I don't have the season pass but I would've gladly paid for this mode. I've never been more interested in a time period more than Ancient Egypt. I hope they do more of these modes in the future.

I really like Bayek too. He's a great protagonist and I loved his connection with Aya.

But yeah, as far as season passes go, I was only interested in the 2 story DLCs and that was it. I don't really care about the gear packs, since there's so much gear in the game already. But if you were only interested in the story DLCs as well, unfortunately buying them separately is $30 USD total so you'd have spent an extra $10 if you got the season pass. I wish they would make another DLC after Curse of the Pharaohs, but it doesn't seem likely.

I love Bayek and Aya. Fav couple lol. I’m really hoping they do make another DLC for it maybe eventually, but yeah you can never be sure. :/ Oh well. I really love the game so I’m not saying the season pass wasn’t worth it. My likelihood of playing it through again is obviously VERY high haha, I’m just not quite ready to yet. Waiting for the DLC.

Yes, I agree! Bayek and Aya are also my favorite couple. The ending broke my heart though. I'm excited to see Aya in the Hidden Ones since I haven't progressed to that part yet.

I didn't care much for Arno and Elise, and Ezio and Cristina were cute but idk. I honestly missed of lot of cutscenes in the Ezio trilogy, since I don't remember hardly ANYTHING about their relationship.

In my opinion, Assassin's Creed titles are all subjective in terms of personal preference.

If you liked Revelations, you could get the Ezio collection that released on Xbox One. It contains 3 games (AC 2, Brotherhood and Revelations). You can experience Ezio's whole story if you really liked Revelations.

AC III focuses on the American Revolution. It'll take place in the frontier and Boston/New York areas during those times. It's backwards compatible on the X1 and I'd recommend it. It's very different feeling than Revelations, but pretty much every AC game changes up its formula with each new installment.

AC IV Black Flag is available on the X1 too. I'd say it's my favorite AC game, taking place during the Golden Age of Piracy, in the Caribbean. It's a beautiful game with great environments. You'll be doing a lot of ship battles since it's basically a pirate game, but I highly recommend it. The story and characters are great.

AC Unity is the first game made exclusively on the newer consoles. It's set during the French Revolution in Paris. It's visually stunning, but the game has a few technical issues and the story leaves a lot to be desired. It's not as bad as it used to be IMO. The gameplay is still solid and it's pretty cheap now.

AC Syndicate features 2 playable assassins, taking place during Victorian London. I liked this much more than Unity, and the story was improved too.

AC Rogue takes place during the Seven Years War I believe and you play as a Assassin-turned-Templar. I haven't played much of this one yet, but it has a lot of ship combat like Black Flag.

Finally, the newest one, AC Origins. It's set in Ancient Egypt and focuses a lot on Egyptian mythology and the reign of Caesar and Cleopatra. I'd highly recommend this one! There's tons to do, Egypt is absolutely gorgeous and it breathed new life into the series.

Ooh, I totally forgot about Rogue. I just looked up the trailer and it looks like a blast - I may buy it within the next few days.

I played Origins briefly, then when I went back to it and I completely forgot how to play. From what I've seen, it's beautiful and fun. I love Ancient history so this game is a sweet treat for me, although I was hoping for a World War game.

I've played the rest, a lot of people hate Unity but I actually liked it although the Ezio trilogy was probably my favorite alongside three. I have yet to finish Black Flag and Syndicate, I like them both but just got busy and Blag Flag has so much sailing on an already ginormous map.

I'll probably play one of these games tonight after this thread, I really love this series.

Just beat Origins, it was fantastic. I'd have to say it's my favorite AC game.

I'm still not sure if Origins is my favorite game or not. It's a tie between that and Black Flag. I'll need to replay Origins and Black Flag again to see if my opinion has changed.

Graphics wise, Origins is far superior. Plus, the world is more fleshed out and feels alive more than Black Flag could at the time.
Gameplay wise, Origins still wins. The gameplay is much more fun and diverse than Black Flag. Though I daresay I disliked the ship combat in Origins compared to BF, but that was mostly because I was pretty garbage at it and kept comparing it to BF's naval battles when Origins had to be more ancient, so I didn't do a fair critique of it beforehand.
Story wise, I remember LOVING Black Flag's story. It was perfect to me, that felt very original. Origins' story wasn't as perfect to me (will have to replay both to confirm though), but I still loved it. The dynamic between Aya and Bayek and their journey together felt so genuine. The ending is both beautiful but with sad undertones to it.

Ugh. It was just a great game.

I'm SO excited for Odyssey's reveal in the coming days. Ancient Greece sounds great! All I want is a beautiful world with a good story.

How's everyone enjoying Odyssey? And how was Origins? I'm just starting Odyssey and I very much like the aesthetic so far.

I prefer Origin's combat but Odyssey is hands down the best thus far.

I played very little of Origins but I do have access to it, so hoping to play through it as well. Not sure if I'll ever go back to the older games (as I've never played any before) but I might.

Yes, play through Origins! It's a very, very close second. I'd definitely play the first two games of the Ezio trilogy. Black Flag is many player's favorite but it's one of my least favorites. I also love three but many players dislike it.

I do feel like I should know more about the games considering the job that I have now. I feel like they're the kinds of games I will like, but I'm just flattened under a pile of games already
