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

First off, I bought the game.
This game was totally awesome.
1. It had awesome graphics
2. It had good combat
3. The game area is huge, unlike AC3 which had 3 large areas, This game had 30 different areas with its own different habitats and characteristics.
4. If you liked the navel battles in AC3 then you will love this game a whole lot more.
A couple of little spoiler alerts: you will not have the tomahawk from AC3 and you will acquire old and a couple of new weapons.
I honestly loved this game so much that I played the whole game over again just to experience it again.
Overall there is just so much to do just in the campaign and the multiplayer is constantly wanting you to play longer.
