I'm not going to say it's not repetitive at times because it can be, but honestly, there's so much more to do and a whole bunch of Islands & Sea Adventures to explore. It's the best one in the series to me and playing as a Pirate and all it's glory is completely why. Total freedom to sail and travel the Sea's while docking where you like and finding secrets, gold and such on the Islands/Land.
You also build your crew as you go along, adding upgrades to your ship while attacking and assaulting other ships to steal there crew, there cargo or simply just for fun Ha! I don't own this game, but I had a blast playing it around my cousins house. If you choose, you can even go sea hunting and track down Sharks, Whales and Sword Fish. You can then sell there meat to store merchants.
I think it's a solid game. If you are unsure, give it a rent man or watch some clips and see if it's for you.
