I had a certain amount of trepidation about trying this one, I played Assassins Creed 3, and found it lacking in some ways, weak character, I got tired of searching around in the woods, etc. naval battles were hard to win, storyline was hard to follow. Now back to this one ( IV ) this one is far superior in character ( I just simply liked the guy ) , the storyline was marvelous and the end segment was superb ( watch into the credits ) , the naval battles were easier to win in this one thanks to better targeting and mortar cannons, crafting was easier in this one pelts were available in the store for purchase and hunting did not seem to be as difficult either. progressing was easier because you were not overwhelmed by the enemy every time an alarm was tripped and with effort you could escape and hide. I am thrilled to have played this one (IV ) and I did put intense time into completing it ( played 8 or more hours a day for a week ) , I , ll buy it later to complete all the little side missions I did not finish. Which brings me to the only real thing against it, It is an extremely long game Hard to do on a rent, but you get your moneys when buying it, I do not see how Game-Fly can rent it out it takes so long to play, but Thank You very much Game-Fly for allowing me to rent it and play it so soon after its release, Thanks and See-Ya!

Its good besides the fact that 60% of all the missions all you do is tail people followed by an eavesdrop. It gets really repetitive very fast. The main good thing about this game is definitely the graphics, they are pretty good, esp on next gen. In my opinion the assassins creed games are getting very ran down and rushed too much. If you are a fan it's worth a rent but in my opinion not a buy.
