Man, after the disappointment and frustrations of Assassin's Creed 3, I thought I was done with this franchise which I've adored ever since the original Assassin's Creed all those years ago.
Now I'm only a few hours into Assassin's Creed: Black Flag but already this reminds me of the franchise I once couldn't get enough of. From the captivating world to simply how well it plays, this is already some of the most fun I've had in an Assassin's Creed game since Brotherhood. It's difficult to explain why, but I feel the stealth sections are fairer and more of an enjoyable challenge. The game hasn't really opened up yet, but I found myself just walking around Havana taking in the sights because part of the joys of this franchise as always been taking in the world. Looks outstanding to on the PC, after they finally fixed some of the technical issues the game had.
Is Assassin's Creed finally back on track? Don't know yet but can't wait to play more.
I did chuckle at the fact that Edward's running animation seems identical to the running animation for Aiden Pearce from Watch Dogs, guess that makes sense though.
