Assassin’s Creed IV: Enormous, but ultimately empty | ARS

At this point, Assassin's Creed should be much smarter. It should do a better job weaving its modern-era storytelling into its 18th century romps, rather than yank us out of the exciting stuff to hear endless, confusing diary entries from Desmond Miles every once in a while. It should shrink its island-hopping enormity for the sake of better-choreographed missions—ones that we might actually play the way they're designed if not for the morons holding post. And it should make us feel excited to be bloody pirates, not bored with all-too-somber brooders or all-too-obvious archetypes.

Instead, what should have been a rollicking thunderstorm of open-seas adventure will probably make players seasick with disappointment. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One) -

Without reading this preview, I wouldn't doubt its "empty" ...Far Cry felt a lot like that, huge beautiful game, but really simple and quickly became stale/boring

Agreed, that's why I stopped playing so early in the game.

I'm tired of these Ubisoft games with minimaps like pizzas. In fact, I'm tired of minimaps, they're so hand-holdy. They shouldn't precede discovery, all the icons cheapen the things they represent.

I know AC 1 has it's flaws, but the feel of that game is still my favourite. There was something just really unique about it. It wasn't cheesy, and overall it was just a more modest game that left a little bit more to the imagination. Every game after it was just a big, explosive blockbuster film. They just pander to ADD people. AC1 had a more meditative quality to it that I really enjoyed.

Oh yeah and this just looks like a third person Far Cry 3 in the 17th century. Far Cry 3 is rubbish.
