Excellent

Pirates life for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game.

The campaign is long enough. It took me about 3 days to complete the story with a few hours each day. But there is plenty to do after the game is completed. It mostly consists of collecting items.

The battles with other ships were always exciting. The long list of ship upgrades gave me a reason to continue looting and take more ships.

But there are four very difficulty/advanced flag ships you can attempt to defeat in the game. Each one is located in a corner of the map. You have to really work your ship up before you have a fighting chance because they out rank every aspect of your crew and ship by almost 2x. That's AFTER completing the game.

The story line outside of the simulation is really predictable and a waste of time. I rushed through that part as fast as I could so I could go back to being a pirate. I wish Ubisoft would end the constant switching. Let me stay in the simulation the whole time!

This is easily a must rent and likely a must buy if you enjoy the time period and subject.

Brought back the best feature from the last game (naval combat), totally paid off! Immersive world, lots to do and explore, boarding ships can never get old.

Decent but slow moving

Anyone who's played the Assassin's Creed series like I have knows how addicting it gets. Perfecting assassinations, side missions, challenges, getting the best weapons, finding the secrets... It's a lot of fun. But III was slow and uninspiring and sadly this one is too. What is the point of all this hunting and crafting and sailing? It's just boring. I can literally fall asleep playing this game. Sailing from one mission to the next is the most mundane thing I can ever remember doing in a game! And those songs, though charming at first, make me want to shoot myself after so many times. Ubisoft needs to figure out how to make this game more exciting and less redundant. Step it up!
