I could not play this game for more than 20 minutes without the game freezing up. Does Ubisoft do ANY kind of debugging or Beta testing??? Thank goodness I rented this game. I ended up returning it the same day I received it.
AC Black Flag looks nice but after the novelty of piloting your ship wears off there is nothing very interesting in this game.
Removing the x button to initiate climbing ruins running around as you always climb a wall or jump onto a pillar that you don't want to. The characters and story are forgettable and the rest is go here kill someone or open a chest.
The old AC gameplay just feels tired and boring and putting in ships only masks the underlying problem that this franchise needs to go down to Davey Jones' Locker
