AC4 is substantially better, but good god AC2 is more repetitive and dull than 1 by tenfold.

I agree, things that were optional in 1 are forced in 2.

Loved them both but no idea why 1 gets so much hate for things that 2 did worse.

AC4 has a lot of boring tailing mission both on land and ship. Other than that; it's a solid game.

I just love that AC1 actually feels like you're an assassin. It's practically medieval Hitman. AC2 actually has bossfights, with no possible stealth option. That's just wrong. Deus Ex: Human Revolution got criticized for having boss fights that didn't have options, but at least open combat was a potential focus in the game before, in AC2 you're suddenly doing something completely different from how the rest of the game typically works. Especially since you can't rely on counters for the bosses.

AC4 is worth playing even if you dislike AC games. It was one of my biggest surprises of 2013, absolutely a worthy game that deserves the hype.
How so? Because AC3 was terrible.

Whoa...... I am shocked. I think I should check this out for myself now. I've always had a love / hate relationship with AC. Loved, II, hated the yearly milkage.

Around Sequence 9 on 3 but never get to finish it. I got an unopened special edition of blackflag for the PS3 here just sitting. I reckon I should probably give it a shot if its worth it. I only genuinely enjoyed 2 but for some reason my passion died at the beginning of brotherhood. Any extra things that are worth doing other than the story?
