After four editions of strictly the same game - with tweaks and developments along the way, of course - has Ubisoft given a fresh experience. A new start, if you want to say. Just like the pioneers who emigrated to America already in the 1600s was also promised. Gold and green forests.
In this game, you start with a new character named Connor, or Ratonhnhaké: ton, which Indian relatives call him. With a British father who have long since turned their backs against the family.
The game for the first time the ability to control a warship that one has the ability to upgrade, you have new places to climb as in trees. I was very fascinated that the year change in the game from summer to winter. And for the first time one can hunt for animals or being hunted by animals.
The positives of the game: Beautiful surroundings, fun naval combat, good fighting, diversity and variety.
The negative of the game: A lot of small errors, much time is spent on film sequences and loading, a bit dated.
So my full scores for this game is - 7 / Great game!
Highest Rated (6 agree) 7/10
A flawed gem, this game had me feeling cheated yet awed all at the same time. The Anvil Next engine is stunning, the setting is very well presented with the frontier and hunting being simply amazing, the music is, well, typical for an AC game, which means pretty legendary, oh and the parkour is now rather fantastic, although a lot more streamlined which can sometimes be a bad thing. But! Yes there is a but. It is not the game it should be, the combat although evolved from the others, is still far…
