AC IV: Black Flag might live up to my expectations

I went hands-on with AC IV: Black Flag at Fan Expo in Toronto a few days ago.

I'm always pumped for AC titles, but then when they're finally released I'm disappointed. I think my expectations are just too high or something.

Anyway, I love pirates and I love the seamless transition from naval combat to on-foot segments (it works perfectly and reminds me of GTA).

I'm hoping this is the first Assassin's Creed title to finally live up to my (possibly unreasonable) expectations.

Same here I always think the next AC game will be better but never liked them, hope this one is different.

Glad you gave some insight to this. This is one of my most anticipated so it's good to see that the game runs smoothly. I was unable to go to fan expo this year so I'm glad you had some first hand experience with the game TC. Most people just tend to bash games saying games better be good.

Had I known PS4 was gonna be there I would have cancelled my other plans :(

The only AC game I ever played was III. It was sooooo boring, except the naval battles rocked.

IV has to be an improvement.

Maybe it will be like Pirates of the Caribbean: One strange tide. The whole movie was strange and the game might be to.

I have it pre-ordered for PS4 and it looks great from game play I have seen.

Not a fan of naval warfare and pirates. I like the AC games but AC3 didnt not like the naval missions. I will wait for reviews on this game as I want to follow the story but I can do that on youtube, if the gameplay isnt bad Ill get this.

AC3 was a big let down it had promise but hardly enough assasin missions or stealth etc.half the game was pretty much a tutorial on how to play the controls and techniques but the characters did have promise and they dropped the ball, now with AC4 Im not holding my breath it seems like a naval game more than an assassin game, my how far the game has turned away from its original plot and style its sad :(
