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.
The game was large which is nice.
Upgrades: your able to upgrade your ship, your guns and swords, and craft an assortment of gadgets and clothes; some clothes even give special effects (which is awesome).Early in the game you obtain an island which is upgrade-able.
The online multiplayer is fun, and different from norm, taking a stealth approach, with multiple game modes. Even a 'build your own game mode', where you can decipher game mode, map, rules, restrictions, and play it with other players.
The treasure maps were a cool idea.
Plus the fact your a flippin pirate, that can sail a fairly large sea.. That was a new and cool to experience.
There where chests throughout the game along with another thing called 'Animus Fragment'. These things in specific got more annoying to collect and felt more like a chore later in the game.
Towards the end it felt pretty null game play, i'd felt like I had done everything i wanted to even though my percent was still at 86%, so I didn't feel it had much replay-ability.
The game was well rounded.
That being said if you love games its worth the time.
