I have been a fan of this series since Assassin's Creed 2 came out years ago. I have bought 4 of them for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 so I know pretty much everything about all of these. I have to say, the newest one, Black Flag, is the absolute best. It was released just a week ago and I have been playing it almost non-stop. It uses all the best parts from any previous game and puts it all into one action-packed strategy game. Although it seems like its the same old stuff, it's not. Especially the naval battles and how they can be fought. They are truly terrific. Also, a new idea of treasure hunting is developed in this game mode, along with coordinates, a fleet system, levels of ships, new upgrades, harpooning, and raiding forts and towns. The online multiplayer is also different, with whole new game modes and lobby-making sectors. These games have been known to have some of the most realistic graphics available and Ubisoft shows this off even more in Assassins Creed 4. I recommend it to anybody, even non-gamers, because it will suck you in and you will love every second of it.
