I haven't finished the game yet, but from what I have played so far, I am very impressed. Before ACIII was announced I was unsure of the series being able to come back from the two mistakes known as Brotherhood and Revelations, but this game is at least on par with ACII, and I actually think I like it more.
Really awsome game, i only had a few minor complaints. like why is the water still a lipuid when there is snow on the ground lol. would much cooler if it was ice in the winter in my openion. I only really had one other complaint then that but thats only because of the location of my house lol. For example were I live no one will provide enternet and the satalite enternet isn't even avalible for me so some of the costumes I can't get, which really sucks...
Once again, this series comes through. Every time it comes out, I say "Okay, there's luck's run out, this is gonna be the one that's just mediocre. Where they take a wrong turn, where the game goes stale" BUT, here were are, 5 games in and this series just gets better and better.
This game is HUGE. It honestly has the feel of a Skyrim, the game is so big and there's so many sidequests and oddjobs, things to collect, animals to hunt, stuff to sell, things to upgrade, purchase, etc. Graphics are great once your into the main game. Wilderness is incredible, naval parts look fantastic and of course, overall textures are just spectacular.
There's a ton of weapons, equipment, and so on.
Combat is good. Nice variety of weapons and moves.
The game is VERY long. And I will say that the opening is VERY SLOW. It takes an upwards of 5 or so hours before it REALLY begins. Keep that in mind. The wait is worth it.
It's immersive. Deep and a very pleasant experience and world to explore.
This game will keep your attention for a long time and is well worth the time and investment. Great great great great game.
