Anyone else super impressed by the naval battles?

I know I am! The scale of these battles is huge. Definitely a welcomed addition and it feels really polished and well done overall.

I honestly feel like this could be a full fledged game in it's own right (If expanded upon, of course)

I sure like what I saw from the "tutorial" mission

If you've only done the tutorial mission, you got a lot more to see!
The naval missions are actually my favorite part of this game.

The naval battles were a good addition. Added some good variety and were done very nicely. That element of AC 3 could serve as a base to build a good pirate adventure game (or somethink of that ilk).

they could pretty much make a whole game of it, or at the very least a DLC. add more to it, like being able to board an enemy ship whenever you want (rather than only when the game lets you), putting together a fleet of ships and having larger scale battles with the ability to give commands to said ships, docking at a port and pillaging nearby towns (and blackmailing the town to give you money in exchange for not pillaging it anymore), etc.

theres a lot of things they could do, even tying it into AC. you could play as Connor's child or grandchild or whatever, and choose to either be sailor\privateer (good) or pirate (evil).

yeah, the naval section was awesome (except for a couple sucky optional objectives)

First thing I thought when playing was that the mechanics would be perfect for a new Sid Meier's Pirates on the Xbox 360

The naval battles were awesome, and definitely one of my favorite parts of the game. It would be sweet if they made a DLC dedicated to the naval storyline.

I agree. One of the best parts of the game.

I dont know if its because I didnt know this was in the game but when you first get on the ship I was like a kid at christmas when I realised I could control it.

StarDreamer99's made a good point and I would love to see it built upon and made into some sort of pirate game. It doesnt even need to be an assassins game. Just do something with it.

Seems quite fun, a change, can't protect it at 50% that's for sure.

Not a fan at all, probably because I suck at them, I'm stuck on the first non story mission.

Yeah I've got to agree the Naval missions where the best part of the game and i found none of the missions 100% requirements hard maybe that's because i was having too much fun, hopfully Ubisoft have seen how popular the missions where and either do a naval DLC or add it to future AC games.

Faulkner based on Gibbs? Well Kevin Mcnally did voice Faulkner and he also played Gibbs so yeah i think Ubisoft did base the character on him.

Battles

My opinion on the naval battles are they are very well done. The look great and play even better. I just feel they do not belong in the game. It didn't make me feel much like an assassin and more like a naval Captain.

The naval missions were my favorite part of the game. I'd play a game with nothing but them (expanded upon, of course).

Spending 400MS points for the Hidden Secret DLC was not worth it though, nothing was different, it was the same.

I actually like these naval missions very much. They are much better ''spin-off'' missions than Den Defence in Revelations. Couple last ones were pain in the ass though to get to 100% synch.

One of my fave parts as well. Just wish there were more naval missions. Maybe we will see some in the story DLC. We can only hope.
