      Recently watched a gameplay trailer for the new Assassins Creed IV Black Flag, and in my excitement I've jumped back in to play AC3. I played the shit out of the game when it came out, but couldn't give it the long term love because a week later Halo 4 dropped! I know that die hard fans of the series found it disappointing, especially the Haytham/Connor dynamic, but I really enjoyed the week I spent with the game, although it doesn't hold a candle to AC 2 and Brotherhood. The changes in the game mechanics were welcome; streamlining the free-run mechanic generally made movements flow better in the cities and frontier, and the combat is by far the best in the series IMO. The setting felt like the biggest disappointment because it felt so bland compared to the Middle East and Renaissance Italy, so the promise of a large open Caribbean has me licking my chops. My goal with this play through is to take it slow and enjoy the game with no time constraints, and also try to mop up a the Completionist and Perfectionist achievements. Hopefully more people will be able to give this game another chance like I'm trying, because I really feel like it grows on you the more you play.
