What we want from Assassin’s Creed 4

GamesRadar - Here’s what’s needed from Ubisoft’s fast-approaching title. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

How about a BETTER ending.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1098d ago
I have no problems with the story, characters, or ending of AC3

My problem was the games mission structure was terrible. Man I feel like this game could have been incredible... but somehow Ubi messed everything up

I mean AC2 and ACB by far have the best mission structure. AC3 has the best gameplay (freerunning and combat), but AC3 just pissed me off because it had so much potential to be amazing, and it feels like ubisoft sabotaged it everytime during the main mission.

I mean, the side content in AC3 is really good, the peg leg stuff was awesome, the naval missions and the fort liberations.

But the problem is really the main mission structure and the fact the game feels so bogged down by mundane tasks its frustrating. I mean, the game goes apeshit with collectables, but the only ones that actually benifit you or reward you are the peg leg ones. The underground is pointless, it would have been so much better if it was like the tombs in AC2 and ACB. Also, no puzzles which I loved in AC2 and ACB. I mean, how did they forget so much that made the series so good in AC3?

Also ACB did full sych properly, it was a means to challenge the player, but was never intrusive on you. Now its there for the sake of a trophy or achievement. Atleast reward people with the patience to full synch the entire game.

I have 99% of AC3 done, with a 95% trophy completion, but I don't feel like finishing because of the fact the game wants me to run around and fill up the frontier map. I mean seriously?

I mean, in AC2 you felt progression. Ezio was getting better and better and the main mission went on, and you felt rewarded by getting new assassination techniques, and the game was well paced and teaches you all the games mechanics. AC3 ignores all this and gives you everything from the start. I mean Connor is better at killing people than Ezio ever was. But I feel like I didn't earn it.

Also you never feel rewarded by playing the main missions like you did in AC2 and ACB.

I wish they spaced AC out... I don't want it to become like COD or Madden.. I really hope they ditch this yearly release thing

AFTER READING ARTICLE

"Guillemot had little to say about the game other than it would star a new hero in a new time period--confirming that the franchise may abandon its previous style of iterative, yearly sequels"

PLEASE SPACE IT OUT... AS SOMEONE WHO MAKES IT NO SECRET THAT HE LOVES THESE GAMES... THIS IS ALL I REALLY WANT

the annual installments have really killed this series. I absolutely love the game. 2 years until 2 dropped was perfect. THen we get the other 2 in the "trilogy" year after year until the next year sees AC3. By the time AC 2.3 released my interest was minimal. I barely played it. AC3, steelbook case still sitting sealed on my shelf. Quite honestly I have no clue if or when I'll actually play it. Sometimes an entry is so great you want to see another release next year. That's fine but in a 3 year time frame you should only see 2 games max. It's only for the better that a series take a year off here and there. It pains me to say this because I'm an action/adventure junkie and there's never enough of these games releasing. Often when one does 6 do. then next year nothing. But when you have a great series like this making it an annual title is nothing but bad business in the long run....

And since you're changing the Setting & Character, please chose wisely this time, i love the AC series but this AC3's setting and character was pretty boring.

They also need to rebuild the stealth and combat mechanics from the ground up. They're dated as hell.

Ignore conor and his story!

I actually liked Connor and his story, and I'm sad we'll never see it continued, because they clearly left it open for sequels. It wasn't paced well at all, but it still had me hooked for the most part.

The more I think about it, the more I want it to be set in Asia somewhere.

A Russian revolution setting. Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin and the end of the Tsar and birth of Communist Russia, till the death of Hitler.

Do it.
FarCryLover182  +   1098d ago
Sounds like a plausible scenario for AC.
Despair666  +   1098d ago
To be released in 2015
