I've played several of the Assassin's Creed games, but I haven't finished one since Assassin's Creed 2...until now. Assassin's Creed Black Flag eclipses its predecessors in every way. The story is full of adventure and heart, and the protagonist, Edward Kenway, is a killer with a heart of gold. Honestly I think the ending to this game is one of the more poignant endings I've seen in a videogame in years.

The gameplay is traditional Assassin's Creed fun with all of the traversal mechanics from the previous games returning, including the forest traversal and rock climbing found in Assassin's Creed III. The game also includes the sailing and naval battles from Assassin's Creed III and greatly expands upon it making piracy a now crucial part of the game. As far as weapons and gadgets, Edward has a great assortment of tools including darts, pistols, smoke bombs, and even money. I also felt like the designers did a better job than past games designing the levels so that stealth is a viable option.

On the downside, I felt like the game became repetitive at a certain point, and about 2/3 of the way through I found myself playing mainly to collect all these stupid trinkets that really have no real bearing on the game. You see, each location has hundreds of collectibles--treasure chests, song sheets, animus fragments, etc. The game never tells you what some of these are good for, and in most cases collecting them doesn't accomplish anything meaningful. But, maybe brilliantly, the designers show you all of the locations outright and give you a checklist. For me, this tipped the scales from saying "Not worth it" to becoming addicted to getting the list checked off. However, even if it is a compulsion it's not exactly fun and it really pads out the game.

The graphics are great and the shipping was instant. The game is too linear. I wanted to be a free roaming pirate, not a mission runner that has to do things in order and only as the devs saw fit. No yar here.

I got this game free when I purchased a new graphics card. This game has polar opposite characteristics from extremely good to bad.

The Good:
[] The graphics are hands-down the BEST out there right now. I can't believe how good the graphics are. Just amazing.

[] Expansive beautiful landscapes with lots of exploration.

[] Awesome ship battles, but this eventually looses flair.

The Bad:
[] The story was a bit weak and canned.

[] The following/tail missions will make you literally throw your mouse across the room.

[] The horrendously bad controls and navigation will literally make you want to crush your keyboard and mouse. I can't believe how poorly programmed this was. Running should not automatically make the character jump.

The Ugly:
[] pointless collection of items with little reward.

[] lots of bugs from flashing textures to falling into ships/buildings and getting stuck.

[] fighting gets overly repetitive and mindless. Should have put more thought into this.

[] the story was pretty weak and unnecessarily complicated..

If this game and Tomb Raider had a baby, we would have the perfect game. Tomb Raider had AMAZING controls and story.

This Game is actually pretty good, Great Graphics and all. We have it for the PC But also buying it for the PS3.
The Game is pretty big in scope and It truly is open ended, you can have ship to ship combat, huge thunderstorms and huge scary Rogue waves...I once was in a Ship to ship fight during a huge storm and a Rogue wave was coming at us...you can hear the rumbling and it shows on the minimap, you need to head straight into the Rogue wave otherwise you can lose crew members and even damage your ship.

Also, there are Huge Water spouts, need to avoid them!. But It's not all Sea base, plenty of land areas to and the combat is pretty sweet!. Sometimes when running your guy sometimes doesn't do exactly what you want...he'll try to climb a wall but you didn't want that, sometimes the fighting is a bit repetitive but not to often. Lots of side activities and even a few mini games. Hunting, Crafting and even whale hunting is in the game. Some dice game is in the game to. You can upgrade your ship, your weapons and buy different outfits. You can even have your own fleet...but It's like a Mini game in itself. I Love open ended games, Huge replay Value. I'm Several Hours in to the game and I Like it!.

Good fun. Wish it was a little more immersive like skyrim, but then I wish I could be an assassin like Edward Kenway in skyrim too.
