I must admit I am bias given the setting of the American Revolution, however this game is truly outstanding.
The multiplayer allows vast customization and the game modes are very intense. Given the assassin theme, your heart will be racing throughout the match as you never truly know where your foes could be lurking.
As a Native American, I love the story line, and applaud the developers for doing everything possible to tie historical accuracy into the story as they have done since the first Assassin's Creed release. You find yourself chasing targets through full on battles, crashed ships, crowded towns, and more. The side missions are also worthwhile, and leave hours of gameplay to be explored.
The new engine allows Connor to leap through trees and run all over the map despite the various terrain. The hunting is a welcomed edition, as you not only build your Assassin army along the way, but also strengthen your homestead with various merchants and skilled workers.
This is without a doubt a BUY despite my bias as the graphics, presentation, multiplayer, and single player are all top notch on any scale. Don't be suprised if you are quickly temped to purchase the season pass as well, which I also recommend.
