I started playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag last night. The only Assassin’s Creed games I’ve played are the first one (got bored after the third assassination), the second (made it a handful of hours before not playing anymore) and Assassin’s Creed III (which I played until you arrive in Boston and didn’t get interested in).
Hopefully this game will hold my attention longer. So far it seems pretty good. I like the environment and piloting ships seems like it’ll be pretty cool. I don’t really like the part where you come out of the Animus though. I know all of the games switch between the real world and the Animus, but I wish the game would just take place entirely in the past. I don’t care for whatever story they’re making up to explain everything, and I don’t care for the characters or environment in the present either. Maybe if I had played the other games I’d understand more, but all I want to do is play as Edward Kenway.
