Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Shouldn't be an Assassin's Creed Game

Whether you were a true fan of Assassin’s Creed III and the direction it took the story, there is no denying that the heart and soul of Assassin’s Creed is dead with Desmond as the lead character. We have seen what there is to see from Desmond’s world and while it was a fun ride, it also became a bit overplayed. I have played every game in the series and enjoyed it immensely, but even those who share the same boat as I, can not deny that you, too, released a sigh of relief knowing that this was the end. Since the launch of the original game in 2007, we have seen a yearly release from the series which have all presented something exciting and fun, there is 5 titles in a series following the same story line which shows to be a little long-winded throughout. There comes a point where enough is enough. People can remember the Halloween movies, many thought that after III or IV it was enough, but because the name was recognizable they continued to milk the cash cow until it was shrivele...

Cash cows gonna cash.

It is a fact of life. The only way to stop it is to stop buying Assasin's Creed products.

... I -DO- mind the whole sci-fi overlay story that the series has.

The Desmond parts were just straight-out boring to be in previous games, and they're going to go right ahead and continue that crap with the new game. Sadly.

I still haven't finished AC3 because I found the complete package to be rather boring; not just the Desmond parts of the game.

Like it or not , the sci fi elements is a defining part of the franchise , i wouldnt expect it to go away . Only changes could be someone else than Desmond at some point for future parts .

Well i strongly deny it , there you go .

Correction. The heart and soul died when Jade Raymond stopped being the producer on the game and the direction of the series changed with Brotherhood.

After Brotherhood: you can tell they just "lost it". The allure of the story didn't feel compelling anymore and the series failed to evolve past the "animus gimmick". Revelations was a disappointment to the lore and AC3 failed to reinvigorate the magic that AC1 and AC2 started.

I dont share that pessimism . I still enjoyed AC3 a lot , and Liberation on vita was actually miles better and a good beacon of hope for the future of the serie .

With a an already meh AC1 game , i dont see why it's decided that the franchise can't ever do better , once "subpar episodes" are released .

For me they have to scrap the animus. All this 'de-sync' nonsense in game completely takes you out of the game world.

Also the menus, map, controls on screen just lessen the immersion.

I'd like them to take a leaf out of Skyrim's book presentation wise.

I found that in AC3 the de-sync after assassinations and huge events was too quick. It lessened immersion and made the events feel cheap. Lost major points from me there.

Conzul1206d ago

The De-Syncing is just a gating mechanism. All open world games have them in one form or another.

jakmckratos1206d ago

Agreed. SHould have a supernatural Sea-mythology twist and be it's own game with similar mechanics
