Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag for PC is incredible. State of the art technology really makes this game come alive. PhysX effects, ENB like lighting effects, soft and hard shadows. Vibrant world to explore from a pirate coast to an old Cuban city. Sailing the seas is realistic. The water has nice wave effects. You feel like you are going up and down with the ship. I'm running a six core processor and a 670 gtx on max settings. Plays very smooth. Excellent game. Even if you aren't a AC fan you should pick this one up.

Hello, I've been researching and falling this game since E3 this year. I have played the game here at the PAX Seattle gaming convention two week ago. The game is mind blowing realistic. It is very highly graphically done. It uses a real time water/ocean simulator. It has a real time living environment. Which means live actual random events happen all the time. From other ships coming into view, to wild animals appearing, to weather storms moving in. At PAX, it was easily the most stunning Next Gen game shown. The main story line is about 20 to 25 hours long. But the games side missions and adventures is well over another 80 hours long. There is much to do and it is all very exciting with it random unknowns of what's around the bend. The game has actives such has harpooning big wild creatures in the ocean such has Great White sharks, etc. There are many many upgrades for your ship and you character Edward. The games online multiplayer is rebuilt to Next Gen specs in graphics and visuals. It also now has weather cycles just like the the single player game. This game is a easy day one for me.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!! KNOWN LOADING ISSUE WHICH UBISOFT REFUSES TO FIX!!! For any persons who have purchased this game and have been stuck in the loading/Animus screen at any point in the game please email SueUbiSoft@gmail.com with as much of the following information as you're comfortable with to add your name to the list of potential claimants. (Note: I will not share your information with anyone besides any attorneys I contact and I make no promises in regards to a lawsuit coming to fruition, nor to any potential payouts from said lawsuit.) Information: Full Name UbiSoft Username Approximate Date and Place of Purchase A transcript of any current or past UbiSoft support tickets regarding the issue A good contact email address Phone Number DOCUMENTATION DOCUMENTATION DOCUMENTATION, because if it isn't written and/or documented it didn't happen. We need proof of negligence and a wilful intent by UbiSoft to defraud their customers. That, with the amount of people involved is what will give this issue class-action status. No matter if the lawsuit is successful or not, their brand will have the stain of the incident published throughout the gaming community by every magazine and website out their and subsequently their stock will take a loss. It's a domino effect and the only thing these big companies understand is when money is being taken out of their wallet. The following forum has detailed information on the loading issue: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/964018-ACIV-Black-Flag-stuck-on-loading-screen-Forums UbiSoft's Response to My Support Ticket Regarding This Issue Chat Reference Number: 03373578 I purchased Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on May 29th 2016 from WalMart. When trying to fast travel to Nassau I became stuck in the Animus loading screen. Now my game will only load the Animus screen and I can do nothing else with it. I've tried the quitting from the animus screen and then uninstalling and reinstalling Black Flag probably 7 times and it has not worked for me. I've deleted my save file and redownloaded it from the UbiSoft server. I've cleared my game cache. And I've tried using a different brand new copy of the game disc. Nothing has worked, however, and I am still stuck in the Animus loading screen. I have even left the screen sitting for over an hour to see if the game would load, but it did not. I've looked on approximately 5 different forum posts about this same issue on several different sites and I've even read comments on YouTube videos concerning this issue and everyone is saying the same thing, Nassau doesn't load and UbiSoft won't fix it. The only thing I haven't tried yet is downloading a copy from the XBox Live Store to see if that would work. That's why I'm writing today, to see if you would be so kind as to provide me with a download code for my game so that I can give that option a try as a last resort. Thank you. Emily B: Thank you for contacting Ubisoft Live Support. Please give me a moment to read your question, and I'll be with you shortly. Emily B: Good afternoon Me: Good Morning Emily Emily B: I'm sorry to hear you've been having issues with Nassau. We actually do have some instructions on how to fix that. Emily B: They're rather long though, so I'll need to email them to you once the chat closes Emily B: If you still experience issues, you can update your ticket or just hop into chat again Me: Okay Me: Can you email them to me now so I can read over them to see if it's something I haven't already tried? Emily B: Sure Me: Thanks Emily B: I just sent that email out Me: Thanks Body of Email Below: If you are having trouble loading into Nassau during the Sequence 3, Memory 2 story mission, please follow the steps below to resolve the issue: 1. Make sure your console is connected to the internet and you are connected to Xbox Live with an Xbox Gold or Silver account. 2. Insert the game disc and launch the game as you normally would to play it. 3. After the game has been launched, quit the game and eject the disc. -The icon for the game should still show up in the Recently Played tiles below the large tile on the home screen. -If the icon does not appear, you may need to launch another App on the Xbox (such as the Xbox store) and then use the home button in the middle of the controller to leave the opened App. Doing this a couple of times should make the Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag icon eventually appear. 4. Scroll down to recently playede and highlight the Black Flag Tile. 5. In the Manage Game screen, select the game icon, press the Menu button again, and select Uninstall. 6. Once the game is uninstalled, press the Xbox Home button in the middle of the controller. -You should still Black Flag in the Recently Played area, but now dimmed. 7. Highlight Black Flag in recently played and presst menu button. You should then see an option to install the game. -This will begin downloading the game from Xbox Live. Note: If there is not an install choice in that menu, try launching the game, and one of the options in the dialog that appears may be Install. 8. Once the game is fully installed, put the disc back in the console and launch the game. You should now be able to continue playing and load into Nassau without issue. End Email Body. Me: On step 6 Me: "6. Once the game is uninstalled, press the Xbox Home button in the middle of the controller. -You should still Black Flag in the Recently Played area, but now dimmed." Me: This is no longer true as the only item available in the recently played area is the manage game utility Me: Can you please provide updated instructions? Emily B: I'll need to look into it since these are the only instructions provided Me: I'll wait if you would like. Emily B: I will ask and see if I get a quick enough response Me: Thank you Emily B: I apologize for sending the instructions Emily B: It seems we are now doing replacements for those discs Me: Is it the "You send us $20 for shipping and handling" replacements that I've read about online? And even if it isn't why would I need a replacement disc for a game that was bought two weeks ago? Have there been reprints since that timeframe? Emily B: You wouldn't need to pay the $20 since it is still within the 90-day warranty, if you bought it two weeks ago Me: I do not have my receipt, will that affect anything? Emily B: Yes, you'd need the receipt for that Me: And this is where the train comes off the tracks. I did not keep my receipt because I assumed in good faith that the UbiSoft game that I was purchasing would be free from any manufacturer's defect and, as such, I did not feel it necessary to keep my receipt. Emily B: I really do apologize, but I cannot change the replacement procedure Me: Are you telling me that I should have assumed there would be a defect with the game? Me: And if so, wouldn't that imply that UbiSoft is aware of the problem with these recently printed game discs and therefore would be knowingly and fraudulently selling said discs to the public? Me: I'm really wanting to clarify this before I go and talk to some attorneys, on behalf of all the defrauded persons whom purchased this UbiSoft game, so that we can understand if this needs to be a class-action matter or not. Emily B: We are unable assist with legal issues. If you do not have any technical questions, I cannot provide any further assistance. I do apologize for the frustration for the situation Me: Thank you Emily. My lawyer will be contacting your company shortly. Emily B: I hope you have a good week.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is everything good about the preceding AC titles set to the backdrop of a stunning pirate playground that will make a Wind Waker fan drool. Whether you (or the person for which you're buying the title) are a longstanding AC lover or new to video games, you will have fun with this title. At $50, this purchase is a steal. I highly recommend it.

Over all I think this game gets a 9 out of 10 because there may be a few problems here and there, but all games are like that. this game would be great for people that like to be stealthy and strategic, or someone who likes pirates and big cannons and ships.

I own ever entry of this series and I love the direction they went with the gameplay. I have not finished the story mode, so I will limit my comments on the story, but so far it is inferior to the first games. The vastly improved naval battle mechanic brings so much to the world of Assassin's Creed that any new addition will feel almost naked without it. The map system is intuitive and easy to use and adds much to the open world gameplay. You perform specific missions that reveal items on the map which makes looking for items much less of a chore. The only problem I have is that many of the controlls are routed through the "O" button and the game sometimes confuses what you want to do, especially when entering swordfights. The button is used for both blocking during fights and sheathing the sword when not in fights. I have been hit many times because I went to block and my character ended up sheathing his sword. I played the X-box version and I have the same issue there. The triggers are not used in swordfights and I feels that they should return to using them to parry like in the first few games. Both systems also have a glitch that causes you to go to fighting with yyour fists if you transition between swords and pistols.

If you liked the last Assassin's Creeds then you'll love this one. It meets the expectations and blows them out of the water (pun intended). I love this game like I loved the rest of the Assassin's Creed.

The game was fun, but did have some repetitive aspects. The graphics are great and the naval battles are fun.
