Assassin's Creed 4 is probably the best in the series. I have it on PS4 and love every minute of it.

Agent20091808d ago

I remember that I used to tell everyone that this is going to be the best Assassin's Creed game in the series (even though I haven't played one before), but no one believed me. Look at it now!

Cool story, I know...

A fun game doesn't mean it's the best game. Somebody could find a game fun but it may be voted one of the worst games of the year.

Imo a great game would be one that has a good story gameplay and doesn't feel like you're forcing yourself to play it. Which AC4 doesn't but the story is far from great, it's probably one of the most forgettable out of the Assassin creed games.

It's the most fun, but it's far from being the best.

If the point of a game is to have fun, then surely the most fun game is the best, in that it is fulfilling its role most effectively?

I mean, if not for fun, why else would you play a game?

Unless you mean it is the most fun but it doesn't really have enough Assassin elements in to be considered and AC game?

Im debating on downloading this game or tomb raider. Im new to both series. I find it hard to purchase tomb raider at the moment because its a port... And i have friends praising both. Any thoughts or advice?

No_Limit1808d ago

Both are great games. Get both if you can but I am liking AC4 the most as it is more of an open world game inste4ad of a linear scripted game like Tomb Raider.

karamsoul1808d ago

Hard choice. BOTH are excellent games. I know. I didn't help much... :/

Yeah this is a tough choice, as both are great games. I agree this is probably the best AC since release, and it is a wonderful game everyone, even non AC fans should play. However Tomb Raider is also a fantastic game, one that I personally would consider one of the better versions in the series.

Heres the thing though. All game sequels are designed to be pick up and play, even for people who have never played the previous ones. However for a game like AC, playing the past ones gives you a serious wealth of knowledge into the series and will explain a lot as to who you are, what you are doing, and where the story is going. This one focuses more on the past then the present, which I believe is a good thing, especially for newcomers, yet still, I would almost suggest playing the others first.

Now Tomb Raider is a reboot of the series, and an origin story for Lara Croft, thus making it by default the easier game to pick up. Now the fact it is a port shouldn't do anything to sway your decision, UNLESS you have already played it. The game is one of those must plays for all action adventure/platformer fans. Crystal Dynamics really outdid themselves with this game.

As No_Limit says, pick up both if you can, both are fantastic, and easy pick up and play without worrying about the previous games. Just Tomb Raider is the easier of the two to do that with.

Good luck on your decision, and Happy gaming!

If you ever decide to play the other assassins creed games id recommend playing those first. It's going to be a lot different if you play 4 first.

Nice, this game deserves it. It was my favorite AC, especially after the disaster that was AC3

Drakesfortune1808d ago

Yes it is great and i did enjoy it....but i cant help but feel that this should of been a separate franchise about pirates rather than tied in to an assassins ga,e....i didn't like really like the story and nor did i really feel like an assassin like i did with altair or Ezio

Nocando1808d ago

To each his own I suppose, I keep coming back to this series but have never had the patience to finish any of them due to just becoming bored with it.
