2014 has been a difficult year from a review standpoint.
Some of the biggest titles haven't lived up to expectations, at least from a score perspective. Destiny , inFamous: Second Son , Watch Dogs and even the massively hyped Titanfall couldn't break the coveted 9+ threshold as an average Metascore.
So, the question should be obvious: Will the next huge release disappoint critics again, or will it soar high? One could actually argue that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was the first high-profile 2014 title that actually delivered. Most reviewers and gamers really seem to like it, right? Well, maybe Assassin's Creed Unity can continue the upswing. We're already seeing solid reviews for Rogue , so shouldn't it stand to reason that Unity – specifically designed for the new consoles and PC – will be even better…?
I can't say anything about it just yet, but we're mere hours from seeing reviews hit the Internet. I'm just wondering what people are anticipating. The year has been so up-and-down that it's difficult to know what to expect.
