Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
Great Game, Great Graphics, Great Performance
A lot of reviewers on Gamespot, IGN and Gameinformer have been talking about low framerates in the game, and I think they are completely wrong! The framerates are great! It looks like an actual film! The only place it actually has a small framerate issue is on a few of the islands. The game runs at a smooth 30fps and is displayed in 1080p. Aside from the amazing graphics, the game has a story that is boring from the start, but ends up awesome in the end, and also there are so many things to do like hunting for treasure chests and diving underwater to search for hidden loot. Stealing from Warehouses for materials to upgrade your ship and Suger and Rum to sell to make more money. Really good game!, the gamepad use is actually really cool. It doesn't make use of the gamepad as much, but off TV play is good, and the map on the gamepad makes it easy to see what's going on at see when your sailing because it's bigger. It makes it really easy to dodge enemy ships in danger zones. The best part of this game is definitely the exploration because there is so much stuff to do. You can even capture forts! That's insane! Get this, You'll be glad you did!
Can't wait for this!
Been knee deep in AC3 for the Wii U and loving it. Now with pirates involved, this next game looks like great fun and glad to see Wii U support, something Wii U owners like!
This is going to be insane!
I thought Ac3 and it's cononial time period couldn't be any better, but this is going to be the same time period except your a PIRATE. For those of you who are wondering, you are going to play as haythams father. I also loved the navy battles in AC3 and hope they make it even better because you know there are going to be a lot of riding boats and looting other peoples ships. Maybe they will add navy fights to the multiplayer, that would be cool. CAN'T WAIT ( :
just played this game on wiiu. surprisingly i will be buying this for wiiu now instead of ps4. love the way it played out on the wiiu gamepad. great setup ninendo.
I've dabbled in the Assassin's Creed series - the first one was an interesting storyline with unexceptional gameplay, the next three all bled together, and the third one (proper) felt as if it squandered an important point in world history by forcing the story - but none really struck me as essential. This one, however, appears to have struck upon a fascinating time period and equally fascinating gameplay. Who doesn't like pirates? It seems for such a popular idea the last essential pirate game was Sid Meier's Pirates!, and all we've had is disposable and confused games since. If this game can capture half of the innate fun to swashbuckling - the devil-may-care attitude, the free flowing swordplay, epic and violent naval collisions, total debauchery - it will be THE must play game of 2013. My pre-order (and my money) are already gambling in the true pirate sense that it will be.
I'm so exited for this and think it a great addition to the Franchise it's connected to AC3 & Conor Kenway.......already Pre-Ordered and got the amazing poster..... P.S if you get the poster and want to put it in a poster frame it 24x36.
I'm still play AC3, but I guess the more notice the better. I knew after playing the sailing mode that it was going somewhere. I didn't expect pirates though. This looks really good, I just hope it doesn't turn into another COD where a new game comes out every year. Games need time to update. Really glad ubisoft is releasing this on the Wii U. Ubisoft has been a strong Wii U supporter, and for that I'm looking forward to this game.
I just reserved my copy last night, Cant wait to play it. Just started AC3 on Wii U. So far, so good:) Hope AC4 is just as exciting. I could care less about DLC not coming to AC4 on Wii U.
Very Excited for AC4
I only played the third assassins creed game on Wii U, and i loved it! The time period was very interesting and once i discovered AC4 i watched a few videos and i was bewildered! I love the graphics, the story, and the different ways you can kill someone. For example if you want to assassinate two targets. You can kill one and the other will run. Then you can either shoot the running target, let him get on his/her boat and kill them, or follow them in your boat,and plunder them. I find this very fascinating because it helps with the fact that you are a pirate. In a video someone said that they changed the targeting system so now its a free aim targeting system so you can do head shots/ knee shots, or where ever you like. So that concludes this review. I hope you like the game.
I just started playing AC IV a couple weeks ago after spending a couple months playing AC III. Both games I love in different ways. I like the crafting feature in III better than IV, but am glad they kept it as part of the game. I do like in IV that they have a much larger selection of upgrades to purchase. It is harder to earn money in this game and it forces you to space out your upgrades, whereas, in III you could buy all of the available upgrades in no-time. Overall, amazing game....Very addictive!
