Assassin's Creed Unity on the Steam Store is being bombarded with a barrage of positive reviews to the point where the game's overall score has been raised. In support of both Ubisoft donating 500K Euros to the Notre Dame Restoration Fund, as well as giving away the game for free until April 25th, gamers everywhere have once again selected Steam's review system to make their voices count
The fact that The Assassin's Creed Unity is making the news right now not only due to being set during the French Revolution, but also due to how the majestic, 14th-century cathedral has been recreated in-game.
I am largely against the ethics of review bombing, however I can really appreciate the irony of this event considering that Steam recently implemented a system to moderate irregular review activity. I am sure that this move must have been an interesting, albeit pleasant, surprise to their algorithm.
Despite its catastrophic launch (literally causing Ubisoft to rethink the idea of an annual launch strategy), it's nice seeing my secret, guilty pleasure of the Assassin's Creed franchise making this unexpected resurgence. In the wake of the recent tragedy at Notre-Dame, now represents the perfect time to replay this game, especially if it can spur more gamers to show one of Paris's greatest treasures their support
