Like the rest of the older games though (at least the ones I've played), I think the gameplay is awful. It just feels very repetitive and gamey to me, and there are too many icons and quest markers floating around the screen. I couldn't get immersed in the game world, and that's a deal-breaker for me.

Fair assessment. For me, sailing and exploring was just up my alley.

This is exactly how I feel about black flag and remember - repetitiveness. It just feels like a chore going from one island to the next to do the same thing, marred by collectables .. etc.

I recently played AC1 (drm free from humble) and thought it was brilliant where you feel like a real assassin, missions are varied, different cities, you never lose control even in the cut-scenes, very good story and atmosphere, and I like the combat. It is also refreshing that you need to practice your moves, be stealthy and think for assassinations rather than the arcade type stuff in black flag. Controls take a bit of getting use to but all logical.
