And all of them prior to Black Flag were also terrible.
For some odd reason, I see it being hailed as the best and perhaps only good AC game when all of the complaints regarding the series are especially prevalent with this one.
- Lack of a combat system that is more than one button
- Way too easy
- No engaging side activites
- Boring real world parts
- Barebones stealth mechanics
- Uninspired and predictable mission structure
So what exactly makes it much better than 3 or Unity? I admit 3 had probably the most boring opening of all of them but seems to me it suffers from the exact same problems as all the others. Black Flag was mildly fun because of the piracy and Odyssey and Origin at least attempted to make something resembling an actual combat system and varied quests/missions a little.
