That’s Another Assassin’s Creed With Something Special But Too Much Missed Potential

An opinion piece via eGamer in which the author has a rant about the latest Assassin's Creed title, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The game boasts one of the most well-crafted open worlds in gaming history but severely lacks in storytelling cohesion, missing an ocean of potential and ending up feeling a little dead in the water. Enough sea puns now.

Quote: "To put it in a short, curt sentence: Ubisoft is the undisputed champion of disappointment. I can’t even tell if they’re holding back or just completely in over their heads with this franchise. Assassin’s Creed IV manages to be, at the same time, something absolutely special with its beautiful and vibrant open world, its intriguing and captivating setting and its endearing and likeable main character, and yet completely flippant in its storytelling, stumbling over itself and missing the world of potential yet again."

Havent played an AC since ACII (the one with Ezio). I might jump back in with this one. I like the open world.

You won't be disappointed, this one's much better than AC3. Who doesn't like pirates right? Great main character.

Ezio was a great main character and that's a lot of what made 2 as good as it was. The engine and gameplay are getting long in the tooth, but thankfully the naval combat adds something new to make it interesting.

Thanks for the info. I plan on getting this for PS4. I like the verticality of the landscape. Previous AC games felt very "flat" but AC4 seems to have a lot of mountains and castles and stuff.

The only thing AC needs is better combat and stealth. Their game would be in a whole new league if only they could implement that free flowing mechanics from rocksteady games...
