This game is among the best games I have ever played hands down. I don't even know where to begin. Well I can start by saying really the ONLY complaint I have is that the game still shows the "hood pulling up" animation when the outfit has no hood but that is extremely trivial. The amazing thing about this series, especially in the later titles, is that it somehow manages to avoid repetitive between games. Even with the whole "coming of age" story that is present in a lot of these titles, it is different enough to make it interesting. The exploration in this game is top notch. There is a large emphasis on stealth in this game multiple times, while at the same time having intense sword and ship battles (those legendary ships anyone?). The online features that used to be present hurt the experience and frankly are completely unnecessary. I wish things like the white whale weren't tied to the online experience, but there are still workarounds. Having the fleet (sending ships on missions for resources) tied to the online experience makes even less sense. And the monetary value you get from that is marginal at best. All this said aside, easily in the top 10 best games I have ever played, especially in the last 10 years for sure. A must play.
