What is it about AC4 that let you down?
I'm one of the few that actually liked the modern day plot, so it was a little dissapointing to me that it didn't really involve the modern day story line, but i wouldn't go as far as to say that Black Flag was a let down because of it.
My biggest interest in AC was the modern day story.
IMO thats what assassins creed really is.
Alter the present by using memories in the past.
They took a huuuuuuuuge turn in ac 3 and 4 just didnt feel at home.
Here's what i didnt like about the animus part (put in spoiler just in case)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
One of the biggest things that drew people to assassins creed, obviously is the gameplay and story line of the assassin ancestors while in the animus. My issue was Edward simply was not an assassin and he made it very clear he had close to no interest in being one. Sure, he killed lots of templars throughout the game but he did it for different reasons than a true assassin. He never even truly became an assassin until I think it was memory 11 out of 13... and 13 was only cut scenes. So 1.5 memories as Edward the assassin and everything else was Edward the pirate.
Some random gameplay issues:
I did not like was how much they shoved sailing down your throat.
IMO they are diversifying the franchise too much and spreading it too thin in an attempt to please more people.
If you changed Edwards Name, Made it British Vs. The New Wold Vs. Pirates instead of Templar Vs. Assassin Vs. Pirates this could have EASILY been it own mediocre selling game. But instead it boasts the "Assassins Creed" name and thus is one of the best games of 2013.
