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.
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.
The Best Assassin's Creed game
I have played all the Assassin's Creed games(except #1) and this one is the best, even better than well acclaimed #2. Really long game(I hate games that only take a week to beat) with many side missions and exploration(amazing ship battles) that will keep you busy for a long time. It didn't have the really slow start that AC3 had, instead they throw you straight into the action right from the start and it feels like it never stops. It probably has the best single player in a game this year(maybe GTA 5 or the Last Of Us) in my opinion. They don't really make any good pirate games, but this one changes it all and you will be addicted from start to finish. One of the best free roam games out there. So hyped for Assassin's Creed Comet(I would get Unity also but I have no money for next-gen consoles haha!)
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.
It has a good storyline and it's fun over all, really makes you think. Don't order it online also shipping is terribly late getting to your house..I learned the hard way.
Exploration at it's best
For anyone who's ever dreamed of being a pirate, or for some of us who never realized how much we wanted to... this as close as it comes, without actually risking death and disease that is. How better to enjoy the exploration and freedom then from the comfort of your own home. In all seriousness though, the sandbox-esk open sea and smooth control of your ship had me believing I could smell the salty waters myself. The game is also filled with your usual assassin’s fun; overcoming adversity, the satisfaction of the perfect kill, the splendid gear and gadgets, and of course the defeat of the Templars. Factors that I've always enjoyed through the series, but my heart got swooped up by the freedom of the sea with this adventure and if you can't feel the wind in your hair yourself, you can always listen to your mateys belting a shanty!
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.
When I picked this game up from GameStop, and started on the campaign, I literally fell In love with the storyline. I must say, now that I'm a good quarter into the campaign, I haven't found anything wrong with this game. However, there are many things I do like about this game. The first major thing I like, is the naval warfare. this is more of a general appeal, so let me be more specific; the fact that you can board ships whenever you want. in AC3, you had to currently be on a mission to board a ship, on the other hand, in AC4, you can board them whenever you like. Another thing I liked, was the dual swords. The dual swords added new, devastating moves for Edward to preform, which formed a great appeal for me. Another thing I liked, was that Ubisoft kept many of the gun counter attacks from AC3. The main thing I like about this game, is the storyline. It appeals to me because of the pirate times, and just how the character's actions really definitely appeal and define their personalities. Great job Ubisoft, I hope to see more of this great work in the futures- ESPECIALLY FOR NEXT- GEN CONSOLES!!!
