The game is far from the best game i have played after 2 the series started to decline, this game had been haunted by bugs at the beginning, and well most of them have been ironed out but there are still some bugs which in my case are stopping me from getting 100% completion. The naval battles are one of the best features of the game, but are incredibly short and too few, the hunting and skinning aspect of the game was a nice new feature but it does get quite dull and boring. The main game itself was incredibly slow starting and the storyline too short, the desmond parts of the game were good, but at the end of the day Ubisoft took the easy way out and Spoilers here... decided to kill desmond off, supposedly he had too much time spent on him which is a load of bull, in each game you spend overall very little time with desmond and the game kind of suffers for it, as it doesn't allow him to grow as a character. I have never been so bored by an assassins creed game in my life and after I have completed the dlc, I will be trading this in... and will not be returning to the series even when black flag goes cheap. The multiplayer is still as boring as ever and not much has changed the wolfpack mode was a nice new addition and one of the good things to do with the game at least. A lot of people i have seen in comments have agreed with these kinds of views at the end of the day, and I can now understand why the creator of assassins creed left ubisoft the first time round, as he didn't like what they were doing to his creation. There is no love in this game, its lost itself and I very much doubt that anything will be recaptured to make the series good again, the sooner it ends the better.
