AC Mirage Reviews Roundup

After the last parenthesis more focused on open worlds, with AC Mirage, Ubisoft wanted to retrace its steps and re-adopt a formula that was closer to its original formula. For this reason, an aura of mystery had been created around the new chapter of the very famous series. In this AC Mirage reviews roundup article, therefore, we will provide you with an overview of the AC Mirage reviews that have been written by some of the major specialized sites.


The Loadout – 9/10

“Ubisoft delivers a truly excellent experience with Assassin’s Creed Mirage, wonderfully blending this series’ past and present to provide players with a compact, engaging story driven by captivating characters and secrets worth seeking. It’s everything you could want from an Assassin’s Creed game and a welcome sign of things to come after a divisive few years.” [Read full review] – Kyle Wilson

GamingTrend – 8.5/10

“Assassin's Creed Mirage underscores Ubisoft's commitment to bring the series back to its roots, making it a compelling choice for those who are long time fans. Despite not revolutionizing the franchise, it still expertly transports players to an intricately designed Baghdad, and presents a captivating narrative through the lens of one of the most beloved assassins in the series.” [Read full review] – Henry Viola

Wccftech – 8/10

“Assassin’s Creed Mirage doesn’t make the sharpest first impression with its dated visuals and by-the-book mechanics, but like its hooded protagonist, the game sneaks up on you with its manageably-sized yet vibrant map, intricately-woven campaign, and varied missions. Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s blade may be slightly tarnished, but it still leaves a mark.” [Read full review] – Nathan Birch

Gaming Nexus – 8/10

“Mirage is the ultimate Assassin's Creed comfort food for those who've been longing for a return to the classic stealth formula. It's not going to blow you away, but it's well done, and the nostalgia you'll feel playing it will remind you of why you enjoy the series in the first place. Ultimately, Basim and Baghdad coalesce to create a tantalizing vision of what the future of Assassin's Creed could be – a reincarnation of what it once was.” [Read full review] – Jason Dailey

Press Start – 8/10

“Assassin's Creed Mirage makes great effort to simplify the Assassin's Creed formula back to what it was when it first found popularity. The solid stealth mechanics lend themselves well to creating satisfying infiltrations and the open-ended assassinations are some of the series most engaging contracts. It's just a shame that in scaling so much back, the optional content is lacking and the story ultimately goes nowhere. Still, if you're here for an experience akin to the original Assassin's Creed, you'll find little wrong with Mirage. It's an endearing callback to what made us fall in love with the franchise over a decade ago, for better or for worse.” [Read full review] – James Mitchell

Push Square – 7/10

“Assassin's Creed Mirage sets off in search of its roots, and it finds them — both for better and worse. Undeniably basic in its approach to stealth and combat, it feels oddly dated in terms of design, but it's also a refreshing reminder of the series' original strengths. Ultimately, it's a solid sandbox title, and it successfully scratches the hidden blade itch that was so clearly absent in Odyssey and Valhalla.” [Read full review] – Robert Ramsey

Comicbook.com – 7/10

“Perhaps it comes from being tainted by the RPG-style Assassin's Creed games, but even when tallying Mirage's successes, the thought creeps in that the game doesn't always have quite enough to keep players engaged in a fulfilling way. Because of that, Mirage may not be the course correction that many were hoping for – it certainly doesn't feel like the solution to Assassin's Creed's identity crisis, but it could be a start or at least an indication that both styles of the series can coexist with one another instead of only getting one or the other.” [Read full review] – Tanner Dedmon

TheSixthAxis – 7/10

“Assassin's Creed Mirage will appeal to anyone who's been pining for a return to the old school open world stealth of the earlier games. It's pretty much exactly that with a few extra refinements and additions. Some of those additions are a bit distracting and immersion breaking, but nothing gets in the way of some good old fashioned assassinations.” [Read full review] – Gareth Chadwick

Shacknews – 7/10

“Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a worthwhile experience for invested fans of the series. It’s going to give you that stealth and stab gameplay that you’ve enjoyed before, even if it doesn’t build upon it outside of the tools. It’s bookended by exceptional first and third acts, but Ubisoft has again failed to create a detailed and meaningful world that you want to explore beyond its waypoints.” [Read full review] – Bill Lavoy

GameSpot – 6/10

“Assassin's Creed Mirage is a true prequel to Valhalla, only able to tell a compelling narrative arc for Basim with the knowledge of what he becomes later in life. At the very least, you don't need an encyclopedic understanding of Assassin's Creed to appreciate Basim's growth from a young street thief to a duty-bound assassin to a truth-seeking detective as he looks into the interconnected investigations that unlock the enjoyable Black Box assassination missions. And though uninteresting characters mar the experience, an emphasis on social stealth and a history-rich city curate a fun (and educational!) gameplay loop.” [Read full review] – Jordan Ramée
