This is the best pirate simulator ever, but in my opinion it's poor Assassins game. You can upgrade your ship, recruit the crew, sail around the seas, plunder ships, destroy the forts. You can feel like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of Carribean. Everything is great in this game, except of storyline. Plot about Assassins and Templars does not fit to Carribean outfit of this game. Throughout the game you get the feeling that the plot is out of mind. However poor storyline isn't spoiling the fun of this game. I checked every island on the map and I had great fun - it happen very seldom to me. If you want to be a pirate, buy this game!
This is by far the best game in the entire franchise. It reimagines it as well as incorporates addictive and incredible new systems to truly make the ultimate assassin experience. It's the first open world game in the series. It's absolutely beautiful with the best water I've seen in any game. The pirate battles are addictive and never get old. My only criticism is the combat is slightly worse than AC III and the story lags a bit in the middle. Otherwise, this game is a masterpiece.
With superb graphics and thrilling gameplay this is my favorite assassins creed. It has a interesting storyline too, and whats better that you gotta be pirates and destroy ships and forts. Graphics- 10/10 Story-8/10 gameplay- 9/10
Well made game, you can be a PIRATE and kill and loot and everything real pirates do, upgrading your ship, your crew and much more, and there are awesome swords, guns, gadgets and much more to buy, STEAL (lol) and to learn in this game.
Pros : Sea Battle and can Board ship. Fancy Graphic (ii love it) Story Rich, That story make me crying :( the sailors always singing when sailing :)) and i love if they singing xD Cons : too hard to play this game because too many bug in this game that's why i hate it :((
