    Four hours or so in...and I'm bored. Despite whatever innovations there may be (and there don't seem to be that many), I feel like I've played this game so many times before. And at times the game feels so much like AC3 - which in the end I cared little to nothing for - that the feeling is definitely unwelcome. This franchise wore out its welcome with me with that one and Revelations before it.

    *sigh* I knew I should've rented this one instead. :(

    Once I stopped goofing around at sea, I discovered the same thing...

    I only just acquired the Jack Dawn but so far I'm still entertained. Combat is definitely better and I love the music and visuals. I'm simultaneously interested in the story.

    Jackdaw.

    I wish I could say the same but it's just not clicking with me. Ugh, talk about buyer's regret.

    I posted the reasons for my dissatisfaction with the game a few posts ago. Mainly that the AC series and gameplay bores me silly at this point. But yeah, in all honesty, I can't say the pirate's life for me either.

    On land I get the "oh, I've done this a thousand times before" feeling. But sailing the Caribbean sea, attacking Spanish ships and boarding them-- it's all a breath of fresh air in an admittedly stale series. I haven't left the Animus since the initial intro, but I should probably get on that too.

    I think Ubisoft did this series wrong when they made AC Revelations. It was an unnecessary addition, imo, that didn't really contribute anything to the overall series. They could have found some clever way of concluding Ezio's story in the intro to AC3. And while we're on that topic, Black Flag would have been completely unnecessary if AC3 was done more like 4 is.

    Basically Ubisoft made the series stale by releasing two extra games that we didn't need and that were significantly flawed (AC: Revelations and AC3).

    Black Flag tries to remedy this with its exquisite naval experience, but yeah, the land segments could also use a refresh.

    How would you rate each AC game from top to bottom? Mine are

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
    Assassin's Creed II
    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
    Assassin's Creed III
    Assassin's Creed Revelations
    Assassin's Creed

    AC2
    Brotherhood
    AC1
    Revelations
    AC3

    I can't rate Black Flag at this point if I can't motivate myself to finish it, but I'd definitely put it somewhere between Brotherhood and AC1.

    As a Pirate-game, Black Flag is pretty awesome.... what kills the buzz is the Assassin's Creed ball & chain.

    Eagle vision, eavesdropping, tailing and tackling... all that stuff just feels tired and I've just about had my fill even though I haven't even started sequence 8 yet. I already have the Templar armor and the golden-guns but am stuck trying to finish the Assassination Contracts, I want to see those pistol-swords in action... My dilemma: if a dive-bell mission has sharks, I'm as good as dead. For whatever reason, I haven't completed ONE of those infested underwater treks. Eels, Jellyfish and Urchins are fine, but I must be leaking blood whenever sharks are around. My mental block lack of shark-repellant is killing me.:p

    The hardest missions so far were: Hunting Contest & Tackling some Templar dude after steering the JD through a swamp.
    Seriously, those were the toughest & the rest of the Assassin stuff has been an absolute yawn-fest...

    AC2
    AC4 Black Flag
    AC3
    AC Revelations
    AC Brotherhood
    AC

    Surprised by the lackluster response to Black Flag on here, but everyone has their own opinions. I thought it was excellent and it nearly unseated AC2 as greatest game in the series.

    Just started sequence 8 and its eavesdrop, follow target... [Quit Game].
    6 underwater missions were enough to drown my joy, I got the elite plans that I wanted & I'll finish MS next week.

    Doesn't really mean much for someone who has a PC and not a console, though :p
