Assassin's Creed Rogue
Interesting new twist.
When I first heard about Rogue it intrigued me. An Assassin's Creed game where you're a templar who hunts assassins? That's very interesting can't wait til midnight to pick this up.
If you enjoyed Black Flag, you will enjoy this game. All the mechanics are the same as BF, with added features. The story in this game was far more appealing to me, than any of the other AC games. Don't pay any mind to the negative reviews. How someone can rate a game badly just because another game isn't out for the system they own, is beyond me.
AC:Blackflag II : Narwhal Hunter!
This should have probably been released as a sequel to AC4 as it has many parallels ; Ship combat/upgrading/missions, warehouse raiding, takes place less than half a century after AC4, and my favorite thing to do ... lot's and lot's of treasure hunting! You play an Irish guy who loves to fight and make bombs. He also happens to be hunting Assassins, which reminds me of the playable Templar in AC4. I recommend buying this if you absolutely loved AC4 and want to do it all over a gain with a new map, story line, and some added features. Shooting Icebergs and finding treasure under it is kind of fun. Did I mention there are Narwhal's?
Pro's: Great graphics for XBOX 360, movement/combat is smooth, music is nice (kind of reminded me of Firefly/Serenity), huge maps (you get to explore NYC). Plenty of side activities from hunting animals, to crafting, to freeing slaves from enemy boats and adding them to your crew. New equipment like the the fireworks blowgun. Also you can hunt swimming Unicorns!
Con's: Outfits do not add armor or any type of bonus like in previous games. Fast travel does not always work when it should. Restarting sometimes fixes this. Also there is a "Stalker" system where assassins try to kill you wherever you go. This sounds good, but you actually start hearing loud whispers that remind me of the show Lost every time they are near you. This happens a lot more than you wish and there does not seem to be a way to stop this from reoccurring throughout the game.
An Exciting New Open World to Explore!
When I first heard of this game, I was a little skeptical about playing as a Templar. It just didn't seem like it was going to be any fun. Man was I wrong. The story was great, although I was disappointed that it wasn't very long (6 sequences). I thought it was very neat that they had some of the characters from AC3 and AC4. The setting is beautiful! There are so many new animals to hunt/harpoon. There are also different upgrades for your ship. There are just so many new things added to this game that are different from AC4. You can spend HOURS exploring everything this game has to offer and it's amazing!
I must say they announced the game 3 months before it was released and the story was really good. the gameplay is the same but its the last time we'll see it. A huge new open world to explore. Overall really good game if you like this series or want to get into it I highly recommend this game
While it doesn't add much new to the gameplay of the previous iteration of the series, the story is what makes the game worth playing. It connects the story plot points well, returning characters from Black Flag and III into the mix. Very unique main character. Overall, a very good game.
If you're an avid assassins creed fan you need to play this game, the story is great and the ending is mind blowing
A lot better than i thought it would be
i didn`t want this game at first and then my friend told me it was good so i bought the download and i surprisingly liked the Templar story so far.
a new dark tale
i'm really interested in this new game because it seems to offer a new take on the Assassin's Creed story. people are saying this is going to be the darkest out of the Assassin's Creed games which i think is a good change of tone for these games.
Looking good, Templar . . .
The cinematic showed that your character was once an Assassin but defected to being a Templar. I for one have been waiting ages to play as a Templar in an AC game. I only wish it was for Xbox One and PS4 as well, just to get the best out of my systems. But, if it is only on Xbox 360 and PS3, I'll still trust Ubisoft to create a magnificent game for all of us to play. If only it didn't come out in Brokevember, when I pre-order this, I'll have 5 games pre-ordered, two games come out the same day, twice! If this is the case with any other player like myself . . . Good luck.
