Best of the AC series.

Summary: Best in the series hands down. No convoluted over arching Desmond story and the best controlled and dynamic free running in the series. I still run into miscommunication between my hands and what happens on screen from time to time, but most of the time I know what I did wrong to cause Edward to jump headlong off of a building out of no where. I feel more in control of the avatar in the AC then any other in the series. Must own for any AC fan.
Summary: Unfortunately this may be the last AC for Wii U. Needless to say, this was an impressive game on this console! Ship battling can be difficult at first but you'll quickly enjoy it as time progresses. Plus Edward is an awesome character.
Like ACIII ACIV:Black Flag Shows The Power Of The Wii U.

Summary: While I already have the digital copy of this game for the Xbox One I still prefer a physical copy and for the price this is well worth getting knowing the power and abilities that the Wii U has shown with previous games. The graphics are definitely one step ahead of the PS3/Xbox 360 reaching hear the quality of the PS4/XB1. The gamepad screen doesn't really get used more then as a mini-map screen though it's helpful to have it on the gamepad instead of the t.v. screen.
Summary: Not only did I read a plethora of favorable reviews about this game, it was personally and strongly recommended to me by friends of mine. Having played around three hours of the game, I really am just underwhelmed. Maybe my expectations were too high, or maybe I have just grown tired of the AC formula (I played AC1 and AC2), I don't know.
Summary: I love Assassin's Creed but Black Flag was a let down to me. I know the game is set in the Golden Age of Piracy but the thing that bothers me the most is the game revolves too much around naval warfare and naval travel. The story feels neglected to me, the game is not as strong as it could have been. In this game you spend a lot of time trying to earn money to upgrade your ship so you can I love Assassin's Creed but Black Flag was a let down to me.
Climbing interactive environments is engaging and wonderful. 3

Summary: Pros: 1. Quality voice acting and character motion capture. 2. Climbing interactive environments is engaging and wonderful. 3. Ship combat is complex and rewarding. 4. "Fleet" management system offers unique minigame. Cons: 1. Combat is unbalanced and frustrating. The camera loses focus and disengages the player. The player must rely on counterattacks, which guarantee victory, but cannot rely on skill for anything else related to combat. It becomes boring. 2.
Summary: The game is great, better than asscreed 3 for sure. The naval combat in particular is visceral! If I had a ps4 or xbone I'd probably have gotten it for that platform, but then again, graphics quality isn't everything. I'm really liking the way the game integrates with the Wii U gamepad. When you're sailing around you get a top down view with sight lines showing where enemy ships will be able to detect you.
Summary: This game is so overrated, it's annoying. C'mon people, it's basically just a clone of AC3, same visual style, same gameplay, no new tricks, fewer less interesting weapons and of course the sailing, which we also got to see first in AC3. I really don't understand how so many people hate AC3 and just loves AC4. I get that many still mourn Ezio's departure from the series, but hey he isn't This game is so overrated, it's annoying.
