Nothing new

There is nothing new here. I got 30 minutes in... and just sealed it back up and shipped it back to GF.

The framerate on this system is horrendous. I have also played this on my PS4.. and albeit a better frame rate... it is of course the same game.

Boring. Reminded me why I don't like this IP. Walk from one place... hide... run... jump... hide... kill somebody... rinse.. repeat.

I have never gotten into any of the other games in this series, gave this one a chance and glad I did. The story mode is a blast, giving you free roam and of course upgrades to both your character and your 'pirate' ship.

To all the old school gamers here this will remind you of Sid Meier's Pirates. Yes I owned a Commodore 64 and had that game, showing my age. But this is more of a super upgrade from 'Pirates'. Lots of fun.

The multiplayer however is one of the worst I have ever played. They should change the name from multiplayer to hide and seek, that's all you do, not fun at all. No ship battles all small map hide in a crowd or a bush and try to fool the other players.

9/10 for the single player. Would be 10 if there was more to do after you complete the story.

1/10 for the multiplayer mode. Would like to give it a negative number for how horrid it is.

Overall 7/10

Jumping not a problem

I always thought these games looked fun but I suck at jumping in games so I stayed away! HOWEVER this game is fun and the jumping is really reasonable and easy.

I've been Hooked! Argh!!!
