GameSpot's Buyer's Guide - Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Assassin's Creed III was a bit of a let down, all things considered, but it looks like the latest instalment might have rectified a few problems and built something fairly special. Check out our Buyer's Guide to see if you should buy it, rent it, or leave it well alone.

Evidently not only has Gamespot decided that their main target demographic wants to receive their game news and information from gaming shirt wearing hot chicks.But, that it's even better if the understated beauties have an accent of some sort.Thank you Gamespot, for treating me like a 14 year old testosterone heavy,frustrated, nerd.I'm actually 45, I have a wife and 3 gamer sons.I'll take Adam Sessler over Jess McDonnell.or Morgan Webb, or Olivia Munn!Rant over Thank you!

I wouldn't buy it on pc at all, the only reason I have it is it got it free with a gtx 770 2gb gpu. It doesn't run well at all to the point where i have to stop playing it because it just pisses me off.

* Huge and immersive open world based on the Caribbean of the golden age of piracy: CHECK!

* Action packed game with on foot fights and epic naval battles, customizing your character AND your ship: CHECK!

* Do what you want, when you want and how you want. Stealth your way to the kill or go in guns blazing: CHECK!

* Take your time looking for clues on the alternate storyline or rush trough it just focusing on the pirate parts: CHECK!

* New mini-game that lets you use the ships you capture and send them to trade resources or battle other ships: CHECK!


If any of these features appeal to you then at least rent it and ENJOY!

I don't think any reviewer worth his salt should tell you to buy or not to buy a game, or if the game is "buyable" or not.


They should just do an objetive review of the features and also maybe give you a personal opinion about they liking the game or not. 

They already did that in the review. There is absolutelly no need to have a hot blonde telling you to buy a game in a separate feature.

You guys are so quick to put words i never said in my mouth. I don't give a fuck nor i know if Gamespot gets paid or not. 


My point is, this "buyers guide" is completelly unnecesary. Takes way more time to watch the video than just go to the review and see the score and summary.

Buyer's Guide is meant for those who are too lazy or have no time to actually look at the reviews.

Of course, if you prefer to think that GameSpot is just shilling for this-and-that game-maker, well, you can continue wearing that tin-foil hat of yours.

@nicolasetespqr @VexxRed I also fail to understand your reasoning, for the single fact that they titled this as a "BUYER'S GUIDE".  It's supposed to recommend what they think you might want to buy or should avoid.  It's not a review page. It's for people who want a quick insight on a game and a recommendation withot reading a lengthy review.
