Fun returns to the Assassin's Creed series
on 4 May 2015
The pirating gameplay is utterly fantastic, I've yet to finish the game, but the story so far is fantastic too. This is probably the most fun I've had playing Assassin's Creed since the first one. It's more or less your usual gameplay, but you can hop between islands and continents, while attacking and getting attacked by English, Spanish and Pirate ships on the way. You might be thinking "what the hell does pirating have to do with assassins?", more than you'd think, I can assure you.
The only slight let down seems to be bugs, which Assassin's Creed is getting somewhat infamous for now. Stuff like sound effects not always matching up with what is displayed, and random graphical glitches and clipping - it all just briefly brings you out of the experience for a moment. Certainly doesn't ruin it, not by a longshot though.
There are a couple of missions that have a couple of badly designed spots that clearly weren't playtested as well as they could have been. However, this very clear nitpicking ought to be a sign to you that I really am struggling to say anything bad about this game - it really is good and you should get it.
