VideoGamer - Black Flag looks like a return to form for the Assassin's Creed franchise. But then so did Assassin's Creed 3. With yearly sequels now standard, is the popularity of the franchise actually hurting it?
Releasing a game annually creates a diminishing return for the company on that IP in the long run, Ubisoft know this they're just enjoying it while it lasts.
Agree with you as of now, but I have to play this game to see if they really changed it up in this one.
I wish they would take some time to really build a good story which ac3 didn't have. It had the potential but the story wasn't that great and even during the subpar story it was slow and had no pace to it. Nothing felt urgent
That's what we said about AC3 and look what happened.
What happened??? It's the worst AC out of them all.
That's my point
Irony is had they skipped the whole US angle and stayed with Hawthorn it would've been far more interesting. I get the feeling that Ubisoft thinks that Asscreed games are all about the climbing and parkour. If they could just dial that down while adding real stealth and exploration/adventure you'd have a winner! I like the climbing and parkour, just don't hinged all your gameplay on it. Guess how much tree climbing I did in Asscreed 3? LOl
I cant agree with you more, I'm a fan of the environment, and with that said f^&k them Trees in AC3!Not only was it cumbersome to attempt, but what was the lasting motivation to? It comes a time where a game must be stripped of what its known for for its own good, and AC is at that point where its time to go back to the drawing board and add some innovative things... Like maybe a sneak lean and crouch, multiple ways to kill a target from environment kills, stealth kills, bribe kills and give me some good side missions for Christ sake
