The 10 Best Ubisoft Games

Ubisoft has been under fire for sticking with franchise titles from the seventh generation of consoles onwards rather than developing original intellectual properties (IPs) so that they could provide a greater range of series. Nonetheless, the publisher boasts an amazing track record spanning an unexpectedly broad range of genres. As a long-lasting franchise, Ubisoft can be counted on to produce yearly titles like Tom Clancy, Far Cry, and Assassin’s Creed. Occasionally, the publisher may even create a brand-new intellectual property, such as the upcoming Skull and Bones or Immortals Fenyx Rising. What games from Ubisoft are the best?

Each franchise will get one game, however subseries will be taken into account. Rainbow Six and The Division, for instance, are two different entities.
The primary emphasis will be on titles created by Ubisoft’s internal teams.
Only those games that are a part of a larger franchise that Ubisoft has released solely will be taken into consideration. These games are published but not produced by the firm. As a result, only South Park is eligible, not Flanker or Outland.
Updated September 28, 2023 by Mark Sammut: The end of 2023 will see the release of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Which of these projects will be able to stand beside Ubisoft’s finest titles?

10 Silent Hunter 3

Silent Hunter 3
ReleasedMarch 15, 2005

These days, simulator games are uncommon since players want open-world experiences. Nevertheless, Silent Hunter 3 succeeds in making submarine simulation an enjoyable experience, which makes it one of Ubisoft’s greatest releases.

The campaign, which drops players in World War II, puts the player in command of a range of battleships that are typical of this era of history, including destroyer submarines and convoys. It’s also possible for the player to be dropped during particular World War II occasions, which gives it a historical feel.

9 Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas
Platform(s)PC , PS2 , PS3 , PSP , Xbox (Original) , Xbox 360
ReleasedNovember 22, 2006
Developer(s)Ubisoft Montreal
Genre(s)FPS , Tactical

Despite being the most played Rainbow Six game ever, Siege was not always an easy debut for the online shooter; it took some time for it to settle in as one of the best multiplayer shooters available. But those looking for a single-player tactical shooter experience should check out the two Vegas entries, which were the genre’s pioneers in the late 2000s. As a result of the first Vegas mastering its fundamental gameplay formula, the sequel—while still excellent—stayed very close to its 2006 predecessor. Rainbow Six: Vegas follows Logan Keller and two rookie operatives as they attempt to avert a terrorist attack in the titular city, an objective that can be characterised as many things but difficult. Vegas blends elements from well-known shooters of the time with the tactical dexterity that helped make Rainbow Six famous by employing a clever cover system. The end product is a solidly constructed, difficult yet playable game.

8 Trials Rising

Trials Rising
Platform(s)Switch , Xbox One , PC , PS4
ReleasedFebruary 26, 2019
Developer(s)Ubisoft , Red Lynx

The Trials series hasn’t produced a bad entry yet, however it can be difficult to go back in time to the pre-Evolution period in our day and age. Each of the three most recent releases has merits, and a person’s choice may simply depend on which of the three projects served as their introduction to the series. Fusion, although excellent, is not as approachable for novices as its much more hospitable successor Trials Rising embodies the series not just at its most refined but also arguably at its finest. The physics-based stunts in the game gradually get more difficult and ridiculous, and there’s even an option for creative co-op.

7 Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (90)

Developer Ubisoft Paris, Grin
Original NA Release Date March 9, 2006
  • Xbox 360
  • PC
  • PS2
  • Xbox

tactical shooters were quite popular once, and for good reason—a large number of excellent games were available at the time. The most popular of them were the Tom Clancy games, with Warfighter receiving the greatest reviews. This game’s unique selling point is that its weaponry are modelled after actual firearms, giving it a realistic feel in a tactical shooting game. This is a feature-rich game because it also has armoured vehicles, a variety of obstacles, and extra features on different platforms.

6 Beyond Good & Evil

Beyond Good And Evil
Platform(s)PS3 , PS2 , Xbox 360 , Xbox (Original) , Nintendo GameCube , PC
ReleasedNovember 11, 2003
Developer(s)Ubisoft Milan , Ubisoft Montpellier
Genre(s)Action , Adventure

While many video games let players pretend to be investigative reporters, not many of them have the martial arts expertise that Jade does. In Ubisoft’s 2002 game Beyond Good & Evil, she plays the lead character and collaborates with her contacts to discover a global extraterrestrial conspiracy.

The game won multiple awards and received positive reviews despite having low sales. Ubisoft may have announced a prequel to the game in 2017 in response to these accolades, though it is still unknown when it will really release.

5 Assassin’s Creed 2

Assassin’s Creed 2
Platform(s)PS3 , PS4 , Xbox 360 , Xbox One , Switch , PC , macOS
ReleasedNovember 7, 2009
Genre(s)Action , Adventure

The most well-known series from Ubisoft is Assassin’s Creed, and it has produced a number of excellent games. With its emphasis on fighting over stealth, Origins heralded an exciting new period that gave rise to two sequels that are essentially legitimate role-playing games. Though it had a disastrous launch, Unity ultimately polished up its flaws and emerged as maybe the best representation of the “classic” Assassin’s Creed model. Black Flag is one of the greatest pirate games ever made, if not the greatest of all time. Since there are so many excellent games, it’s hard to choose just one, thus Assassin’s Creed 2 will be representing the licence. Though it hasn’t held up so well over time, the 2009 game is still the most cherished installment in the series. It was revolutionary when it was released.

4 Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3
Platform(s)PS4 , PS3 , Xbox One , Xbox 360 , PC
ReleasedNovember 29, 2012
Developer(s)Ubisoft Montreal
Genre(s)FPS , Open-World

Even though the Far Cry series had been going for a while, it wasn’t until Far Cry 3 that the franchise truly took off. The game’s ability to deliver a first-person, third-person shooter-style experience was the key to its renewed popularity.
In Far Cry 3, the story twist made first-person shooter fans care about the story mode, unlike other first-person shooter games, and there was none of the baggage that comes with typical first-person games.

3 Rayman Legends (92)

Rayman Legends
Platform(s)PS4 , PS3 , PS Vita , Xbox One , Xbox 360 , Switch , Wii U , PC , Stadia
ReleasedAugust 30, 2013
Developer(s)Ubisoft Montpellier

The primary target base for Rayman Origins was intended to be children. No one can dispute the game’s quality, even though it wasn’t a very big commercial success when it first came out. More of the same is available in Rayman Legends, its sequel, with the word “more” being the key word here.

It transports players to the heyday of side-scrolling gaming, when levels exuded charm and creativity and the rules were straightforward. As the game goes on, the character can be upgraded and a number of additional skills can be unlocked, providing diversity.

2 Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Platform(s)Nintendo GameCube , PC , PS2 , PS3 , Xbox (Original) , Game Boy Advance
ReleasedOctober 28, 2003
Developer(s)Ubisoft Montreal
Genre(s)Stealth , Platformer

The Prince of Persia series was better than Ubisoft’s favourite option in Assassin’s Creed, which is unfortunate because it ended with the seventh generation. The first game in the trilogy, Sands of Time, is considered one of the best ever developed by Ubisoft. Its unique combat system, imaginative level design, and most importantly, its time travel element, made Sands of Time an immediate classic. You would be doing yourself a favour by going back and reliving this timeless story because it’s still better than most games.

1 Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
Platform(s)Nintendo DS , Nintendo GameCube , PC , PS2 , PS3 , Xbox (Original) , Xbox 360 , Xbox One
ReleasedMarch 28, 2005
Developer(s)Ubisoft Montreal , Ubisoft Annecy
Genre(s)Stealth , Action

Although the Hitman series currently carries the most of the torch for stealth games, Splinter Cell did support the genre’s efforts for a considerable amount of time. Honestly, a handful of these series’ games are among Ubisoft’s greatest, but Chaos Theory is better than the others. By taking a chance to make the series more gritty than its predecessors, this game improved upon their efforts by offering players the opportunity to go in for the kill during gameplay. This gave the game a more true and realistic feel, and the variety of multiplayer options made sure that every player saw some of the action.
