Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
Assassin's Creed IV will be amazing,especialy the Gamestop Edition so go pre-order now to get Black Island pack and a Map/Poster . I want them to keep coming every year ,I love Assssin's Creed 3 :)
Stop Complaining. This Game Is Great!
I Got it Day 1 And It Still Entertains Me. Great Storyline and Gameplay. FPS Feel In Abstergo Felt GREAT. Hacking Animuses (Or Animi, Whichever Is Correct) Is Extremely Fun. Cant wait 'Till 2015 For The New Assassin's Creed Movie!
Too Fast AC3 Fans ?
Is it me or did they pass Assassin's Creed 3 too fast? I thought the game was ok but instead of just passing to make a Assassin's Creed 4, Ubisoft could had extended Connors story. Connor was my favorite character and I don't like it when they overextended Ezio's story, but have just one game on Connor Kenway ? that's not right. But still, this does look like a very good game.
One Of The Best Games That I've Ever Played!
This game was amazing! I love how it is more unique than any other games in the series. Yes, you are an assassin, but the game doesn't focus on struggle, death, and how the Templar's are going to rule the world, like the other games do. Yes, it has that in there, but mainly you are just a pirate, who likes to pillage and plunder! The graphics are some of the best that I have seen in games. The soundtrack was amazing. The gameplay, while still not great, (basically just a button masher game), was improved a little from the games in the past. The story was very well written. My only problem is that there are LOTS of glitches and bugs in this game. I don't know if it's just my PS3 acting up or what, but you can't go ten minutes without something terrible happening! So, if you are to get this game, I would recommend getting it for PS4 or Xbox One instead. But if you don't have either of those yet, like me, you should still get it. Assassin's Creed II is still the best in the series, but this one rests as 2nd place in my book. This game is awesome!
Best AC since AC2
In my opinion, Assassins Creed 2 completely changed the face of the series in comparison to the first game. Revelations was easily forgotten, but things changed with the introduction of AC 3 and it just keeps getting better. This installment in the series is quite possibly the best game to date. There is SO much to do. I have been chipping away at this game between work and homework for the last few weeks and I'm still only 50% through the game. It's easily a game you can stretch out to last you 2 months or longer. The pirate theme of the game is definitely entertaining. The map is fantastic. SHIP BATTLES!!! SO MANY SHIP BATTLES!!! Just do yourself a favor and play the game. If you've lost faith in the series, give it a shot. If you've never played any of the games go buy the titles I recommend below. The only reason I'm not giving the game a perfect rating is for the typical glitches you find in a game this big.
Firsty, for all of those who continuously put ubisoft down for having yearly AC releases. Quit complaining. The AC games always provide something new, and many of us love being captivated by new eras and protagonists. If you don't like the yearly releases, don't buy the game. If you want ubisoft to move on, they already have. Ubisoft does not solely develop Ac games. They have many others including Far Cry 3 which was killer, and the return of Spliter Cell later this year that definitely looks promising. If you like AC, be excited for this one. If you don't, no one cares.
Best pirate game ever
While I will not say it is the best Assassins Creed game I have played it is the best pirate game I have ever played It is fun to go and gather the materials to upgrade your ship and make it the most deadliest ship in the Caribbean the missions can get a little boring sometimes but most are interesting.
Epic + Fail = EPIC FAIL
I spent 56+ hours since the release date. It is one glitch after another. I have completed 92% of the map. Completing every assassin contract, every naval contract, cleared all major towns, minor towns, and forts, save for 1. Although I did complete it, the game didn't give me credit for it and won't let me do it again as it is no longer on the map. Which means the only way I can get 100%, is to start over. A waste of 56 hours of gameplay is a HUGE glitch. Ubisoft spent a lot of time programming the rigging between ship during the boarding, but Edward can't climb and often falls to his death, jumps overboard, or just won't go where you want him to. I spent more time dealing with glitches in this game than ALL previous AC games combined.
Here is how I rate the AC Console games:
AIII (I don't think Conner even knows the creed)
ACIV (I would put it dead last due to the glitches, but at least there is a lot to do)
I recommend it for hardcore gamers who are use to games loaded with glitches.
amazing best ac game
so i just got the game 2 days ago im on the 2 level but its still good its the best in the series i ricamend buying it on the xbox 360 or ps4 the ps3 version gets delayed when sprinting or is it just me please help
Only the Captain can say "Argh".
And you'll be doing it a lot. Assasin's Creed IV: Black Flag is only a good game in that it isn't as bad as it's predecessor, Assassin's Creed III. I'll be straight, I've only really played the AC games for the incredibly deep and complex plot. However, I think they were planning to end the series or at least the first story arc with AC III. AC VI feels like it's an afterthought, scrambling to find it's relevance to the previous games. And overall, nothing happens in the game, plot-wise, besides the introduction of the Observatory, the Sage, and the player character (you). The characters were shallow and I didn't care about them. There's a nice dynamic between Edward and his merchant buddy you meet at the beginning of the game, but I forgot his name since he barely had a cameo afterwards.
Gameplay-wise, it's okay. I really like the sailing aspect but it got old after a while and with no story payoff, I got bored with the game. I kept upgrading Edward and the game didn't get much easier. I had occasional bugs to deal with that had me restarting missions like characters I'm following would walk into walls or the guys I'm eavesdropping on don't trigger their dialogue audio.
I should also mention that the graphics are either gorgeous or terrible. The ocean is wonderfully beautiful but the sky is actually pixelated. Like you can count the squares if you wanted. I'm guessing it's the cutbacks from the PS4 version. Still, it's pretty lame that the overall graphics are worse than previous games.
If you're a diehard AC fan, you'll play this game anyway. If not, don't worry about this one. It's nothing special. Pick up the Ezio Trilogy for the best in the series.
