Most fans would disagree because it does not fit the AC status quo; however, this game breaks away from that but primarily by making assassinations more of a side mission rather than the main focus. In 'Black Flag' they have taken more of an adventurous route and made side missions more interesting. The story line does not disappoint, but it does lack in content.
The controls have not improved much at all, if any; in my opinion, I feel as though the controls have degraded some. Also, it's difficult to counter or avoid enemies that are off the screen. Fighting combinations are repetitive, and guns only seem to stun your target.
Overall, this is a really good game to add to your Q.
I would have given this game a 9 or 10 if not for the shark portions....seriously?!?? You can dive in the water but cant carry a knife with you? It is unbelievably impossible to avoid the sharks at all times and swimming is hard enough. Remove the sharks and this game is great!
