'Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag' And The Lackluster Combat Of Ubisoft's Flagship Action Franchise

Forbes - Combat is at the heart of Ubisoft’s action-assassin series, and that’s always been the video game franchise’s biggest problem. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

My issues with Assassin's Creed have never been with the combat. It's always been with the climbing (AC3) or game design choices. Plus, Connor was a horrible character; the most monotone voice actor ever.

combat and stealth always did suck in these games.

You don't like the combat I think it's decent

Thats funny cuz in AC3 I took out all the forts without alerting the guards. If thats not assassinating I don't know what is.

Stealth always seemed tacked on. And the combat feels like it plays itself.

the combat is essentially the same as the Batman games or Sleeping Dogs, except without the intuition markers of when to block and counter...i didnt really see people complaining about those
