I thought Assassins Creed: Black Flag had more ocean gameplay then it did having ground gameplay. This one definitely looks promising since it's the first to be a next gen game and sticks to more of ground gameplay.

I really felt like the ship and naval gameplay took assassins creed franchise off track. It really turned me off, ship upgrades...riding a horse and telling people when to shoot like a war commander... Tower style mini games...really has NOTHING to do with assassinating anyone. It turned me off from the game. They should have consintrated on more ways to assassinate and making more Actual assassin missions.
So I'm happy to hear they are getting back to the root of the game...they got totally side tracked and turned an assassin into a regular agile killer with a ship.

I agree but I would have liked it if Ubi could have made the ship more incorporated into the world. When I came up to loot the storehouses, I so wished I could fire the cannons and cause havoc. Run in, get caught and have then ring the bell, run back to the ship and wipe the enemies out with a volley of fire. But sadly the game wouldn't allow that. But I agree in that the naval almost took on too much like the dive bell stuff too.

I co-sign your thoughts,I bought AC:BF-4 I played about 3 hrs of it & then traded it in,it was a turn off.

If you have said that the pirate naval gameplay made the game very un-assassin like then I would agree with you.

But it was in no way bad. The opposite. It was very fun. I personally found the side missions of raiding strongholds, or sneaking through plantations very fun. As well as attacking navy ships.

But I am happy that AC: Unity is doing away with naval gameplay and sticking to what's core to the AC series: Urban assassination.

But does it have navel gameplay? The Assassin's Creed series would benefit from more navel gameplay. Though I don't know what that might entail.

I know I'm in the minority, but I found the naval gamplay and sailing to be boring as hell. I for one welcome the return to the ground combat.

Man I can't wait to play this game... It's going to be so good. I always feel like the AC gameplay gets kinda boring but then as soon as I get the game all those thoughts go out thw window and I'm enjoying myself again.

I really liked the naval gameplay on Black Flag. On AC3, not so much. That said, it was enough IMHO. I don't want the AC series to turn into a naval combat series. I'd rather see they add something else that we've never seen before in the AC series.
