Critics Take Aim at ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’
The latest version of Ubisoft’s action-packed adventure plunges players into a very bloody French Revolution. The game has drawn raves for detailed depictions of Parisian landmarks, but poison for a number of glitches. And politicians of la République have denounced the game as “propaganda” that portrays liberators as monsters and evil nobility as victims. But the revolution was no bloodless coup, and the game may have merely stirred up an old debate over the true heroes and villains in one of Europe’s most transformative periods.
