Assassin’s Creed Mirage is Now One of the Lowest-Rated Games in the Series


  • Assassin’s Creed Mirage currently has a 77 overall critic rating, making it one of the lowest-rated main series games in the franchise’s history.
  • Mirage’s storyline and characters have been criticized by many reviewers.
  • The lukewarm reaction to Assassin’s Creed Mirage may impact the future direction of the franchise, but Ubisoft already has set plans for the next few entries in the series anyway.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage currently has a 77 overall critic rating, making it one of the lowest-rated main series games in the history of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Assassin’s Creed has been Ubisoft’s flagship franchise for over a decade. It’s gone through all kinds of transformations over the years, originating as a stealth adventure game before morphing into an open world RPG and eventually returning to its roots with Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage has been billed as a return to the series’ roots, with the game setting aside the massive open worlds and RPG elements that have largely defined the most recent entries in the franchise. Assassin’s Creed Mirage has earned mostly positive reviews from critics since launch, but it is still one of the lowest-rated games in the main series. In fact, Assassin’s Creed Mirage is now tied for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate as the third lowest-rated Assassin’s Creed game. The only AC titles with lower overall ratings are Assassin’s Creed Unity, a game that was widely criticized on release for its severe technical problems, and Assassin’s Creed Rogue, a game that released on outdated hardware the very same day as AC Unity.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage reviews have secured the game a 77 overall rating at the time of this writing, putting it near the bottom of the franchise. Even though Assassin’s Creed Mirage was presented as a return to the series’ roots, it seems it has failed to capture the magic that the older AC games had, as Assassin’s Creed 2 remains the highest-rated game in the series with an impressive 90 overall rating. Most of the Assassin’s Creed games have earned an 80 or above, though Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Mirage, Unity, and Rogue all had 70 or above overall ratings. It seems the main criticism aimed at Assassin’s Creed Mirage has to do with the game’s storyline and characters, which many critics found underwhelming.
