    I just found it clunky at that point. They were going for these cinematic/filmic/dramatic/cool moments, but the engine felt unresponsive at that point.

    However, that mission where you have to run through the town that's being bombarded, and making it through unscathed gets you 100%? That was awesome.

    It's just a bit too hit and miss for me. I'm keen to see what AC4 does to streamline or refine the gameplay.

    So... I have to wait until the end of November. Because I want to play it on Next-Gen. In Europe. :(

    As a former sailor, this game has me the most excited since Ezio's debut... I just hope I don't have some stupid saying everytime I kill a shark.;)

    Shoot. Didn't realize this was coming out already or I might have bought it instead of Batman. The reviews are certainly encouraging.

    It's rated as the best AC game by far

    Yes. This AC game sandbox is off the chain.

    Hate steering the ship during a storm, pain the butt, since you have waves and cyclones coming to get you

    Templar-Assassin hybrid, though Edward's connection to both groups is sketchy at best.
    This game is like Grand Theft Auto on the Caribbean Sea, Ed's pretty much a scumbag.:p

    Well ****, he's a goddam pirate after all. You can't say anyone with that profession is a stand-up guy.

    So what's the verdict guys? Is this a must-buy-right-now product or am I better off holding up a bit 'til it's inevitable discount?

    Last night, I had a blast with all the new refinements... controls feel like they are supposed to, but better.

    I've said all I'm going to say about the main story for now, since I spent most of the first few hours running around, cracking chests open, finding maps and trying to locate the buried treasures. Don't go too fast or you might miss the [To DIG hit - O ]:p

    Does anyone see any reason to buy this on PS4 or will the improvement likely be purely cosmetic?

    You don't even need to buy this on Next Gen, game looks fantastic, graphics is better than GTA V

    So apparently Ubisoft wanted at least 10 games in AC series, well they have 6 already, so 4 more to go

    How does naval combat compare to AC3?

    Is the greatest navy that ever was plausibly good in this game? They were pretty underdone in AC3 as your little privateer cut them apart...
