More of the same, dont get me wrong, I've never been a huge fan of the AC series

Ok, so probably I will receive some thumbs down on this review, but I have played the AC series since the first one and lets be honest here, after you played the first one the gameplay is plain and repetitive: assassin contracts, chase people, climb walls, go to viewpoint, find treasure and when you get bored of exploring the town you continue with the quest. I think that Ubisoft should start thinking on a real twist to the series, and not just only adding ship fights, or different scenarios etc. But make it more challenging, probably a leveling system to gain certain abilities (not just buying new weapons in the store). I dont know, something to make it less PG13 and I am not talking about adding violence but to have a more mind-challenging game.

Graphics, sound, voice acting and story are great. And I can see that Ubisoft put a lot of effort on those fronts. Beatuful just to climb into a viewpoint and stare into the caribbean, is relaxing.

Again, dont get me wrong, I lile AC and it was a revolutionary game in the beggining, but is time to take the next step.
