Can't think of any console games at the moment but for PC games, the jump from Civilization III to Civilization IV was huge. Civilization IV does everything so much better and made the series incredibly addictive. I haven't invested enough time in Civilization V to give an opinion on that, even though I have all the DLC and and expansion packs for it.
ACIV completely improved upon everything that was the disaster that was AC3.
Except combat, story, antagonists, land missions,...
Great pirate game horrible AC title
Opinions, and I would disagree. AC3 story was terrible, game play was same and most importantly fun, game was just tons of fun,
As standalone games, yes.. ACIV was better in every way.
But as parts of the Assassin's Creed Universe? At least 3 dealt more with the templar/assassin struggle.. instead of 'i'm a pirate.. my goal is my self.. screw the assassins.. screw my friends.. i'm going to find this place so I can live like a king!' for 90% of the game.
