This game is silly. Graphically its nice, but as a game it is lacking. You just go around collecting items, and jumping on stuff for updates. Follow a main story line along the way. If you like doing the same thing 40 times in different cities, this is the game for you. I can't believe its so popular among some folks.
I've only played the first game in this series, and after a few days I grew tired with the game. I decided to rent this game, because I started to recently watch the Black Sails show on Starz and it looked like it had a similar story. I had heard really good things about the level of exploration and sense of freedom in the game, and I felt like I wasn't forced in one particular area because all I had to do was fast travel to the open sea and sail around while my crew sang their shanties, or discovered uncharted islands ripe for the picking. I would recommend this game to anyone that enjoys the freedom to roam around, and to those that like to collect things.
