Black Flag (on a downhill slope)

Assasins creed one had a good thing going for it. The game mechanics and storyline were exceptionL for its time which was not too long ago....but with all good things, they die hard. Black Flag's mechanics are so simple a child could play it all you do is hold R1 (ps3) and square to attack with the every now and then press O or X... it is extremely simple. The open world graphics are phenomenal but the world map itself is far too big with not very much actual playable space to explore... it is almost as if you have a set path for you too follow with the illusion of choice.....The online mode was not to great either where one either spends the match hiding or finding the hidden (which is very simple too) There are parts in the story where you wake up from the ANIMUS in your office at Abstergo, only to find that the only way to communicate with anyone is through an iPad...ridiculous.....The graphics are insane, but the game play is slow are horrendous. AND GLITCHY ( so many frustrating moments of trying to climp a simple tree in this game) The "real life" aspect with the iPad angers me... I play video games to get away from real life not to dive deeper into it....everyday I see people with their faces buried in there tablets or iPads...and then I get it in the game???

This is a game that really has more than enough going for it, this title is something that I am thinking about buying after I rented it. If you buy this game for 35$ you will get your moneys worth in the first HOUR! of playing this game, its so flowing and the assassination system is like pixelated GOLD. BUY THIS GAME.

I don't like how long it takes to get to each mission personally I did not like the ship missions on assassins creed 3 and just to find out that assassins creed 4 was a pirate I was like oh god that means lots of ship missions I hate the fact that it is almost always mandatory to sail some where other then that I love the way Edward fights the new ways to kill and hide but I still think ubisoft is holding out on us I give this game a 7 out of 10
