-, -, -, – disliked the ship sequences, lots of time wasting and frustation
+, – interesting storytelling in the past and even in the present there were some surprising stuff, though not spectacular
+, + the environments, atmosphere, background characters were done quite beautifully, many WOW visual moments. Great historical clothes
+ a lot of content/great value
Overall: 2 (on a -5 to 5 scale) Pretty okay game. Nothing spectacular, another AC in the series, again bringing high production values, but being more of the same also. The period is nice and the historical costumes are cool… but the ship sections were for me a great source of grinding and frustration bringing nothing to good to the game… I mean there were a few moments of variety, but I would have happily sacrificed them to not have to go through the grinding repetition of the ship battles. The artwork in the game was again top notch.
Not only am I looking forward to thsi game because of the very interesting simulations and humor of the last 2 but also I happened to have recently seen the Charlie Chaplin movie so had to post this.
Oh, and with all the Pirates of the Caribbean stuff (and now playing AC4) this one is also particularly funny imo:
