    Assasins Creed 4 is a great resurgence of the series that is LOADS OF PIRATE FUN

    Rated on November 20, 2013 by bogeta24

    My first game for PS4 and I am hooked. While AC 4 has a somewhat bland story, the gameplay makes the plot itself more enjoyable. Sailing around in your pirate ship is great fun and fire fights on the...

    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 ...

    Strong, Addicting, but Monotonous game

    Rated on January 02, 2014 by eporrini

    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 fa...

    This game ruined the Assassins franchise

    Rated on April 08, 2014 by waleedtahan

    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 grea...
