    Huge Game, Huge Disappointment...! (on PC).

    The only positive thing I can say about the Assassins Creed 4 is that it's big and the scenery looks nice. But that doesn't make up for all the disappointment. The gameplay is tedious and very repetitive. There are no re... Read Full Review

    I've lost interest in the Assassins Creed Games as time when on, three looked promising but had terrible pacing and was more of a movie than a game. So now we have Assassins Creed IV, and it's a step in the right directi... Read Full Review

    A marvelous adventure thats hard not to get distracted in.

    Actual Grade 9.5 I've honestly never really played a Assassins Creed game before this one and I did actually own the first one, but to be honest I never really got a real chance to play it. So what enticed me to get this... Read Full Review

    Strong, Addicting, but Monotonous game

    Let me start by saying that I am not an AC franchise fanatic. I did play the original, which I thought was a very good game. After that, I didn't play 2 or 3. I could easily have played them as my family are gamers and ... Read Full Review

    Sailing along the good winds.

    Finally finished assassin's creed 4. So how was it? Well surprisingly this game was much better than assassin's creed 3, considering how awful it was, it isn't saying much but still a much better game. I felt the strengt... Read Full Review

    This game ruined the Assassins franchise

    After playing ACIII last year I was disappointed of what I found in that game and then I had low expectations on this game, because this franchise is totally ruined after Revelations, despite the great engine and the gam... Read Full Review

    Shows promise in many places, but not really better than it's predessor surprisingly.

    I've played all the assassin's creeds save the handheld ones, and I came into this one with a lot of promise that ultimately just turned into frustration over numerous step backs in gameplay.Pacing wise I think ACIV is ... Read Full Review
