    Hello everyone!

    I have been planning to start this thread for a long time, but when I got Garden Warfare I was so happy with it that I stopped playing all of my other PS3 games. Now the Garden fever is loosening its grip on me, so I began to play the others again and here I am writing this.

    So the question is... Have you played Assassin's Creed Rogue?

    At first, my expectations for the game were very high. I loved the idea of sailing through freezing seas full of snowstorms and icebergs, the character looked great and when I discovered that you can visit the Arctic I became convinced and purchased the game. My first few hours with Rogue were nice, but then it started to change.

    First, let me tell you what I like of this game:

    1- The setting is super beautiful, even in the now outdated systems of the PS3.
    2- The time period is quite interesting.
    3- The music in this game is excellent.
    4- Shay Patric Cormac is a great character.
    5- I like the twist that takes place when Shay becomes a Templar.

    Now, what I am disliking about Rogue:

    1- The game feels like an interactive movie, very much like AC3.
    2- Even though the world is huge and there are countless things to do, there is very little purpose and meaning in all of those additional activities.
    3- The world feels very empty.
    4- Poor and unsatisfying combat system.
    5- They talk and talk so much that now I have no idea of what is happening in Shay's life.

    At the moment, I am playing at Sequence 4 and I have completed Honour and Loyalty. Have you completed this game? What are your thoughts on it?
