About this game

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Content Rating: Mature


Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag begins in 1715, when pirates established a lawless republic in the Caribbean and ruled the land and seas. These outlaws paralyzed navies, halted international trade, and plundered vast fortunes. They threatened the power structures that ruled Europe, inspired the imaginations of millions, and left a legacy that still endures.

This is one of the most beloved games in the franchise for the fans but I dislike this game. You are a pirate and doing piraty things like stabby-stab and raising the sea level by nanometers by blasting everything that you can lay your eyes sailing around the vast seas. The maps are not well made and all the exploration was mostly sea-based which was tedious to get from Point A to Point B. Edward's character progression was very bad, though having no training as an assassin he can do all the maneuvers. A small training video in his childhood would have plugged that gap. The worst part of the game is that you are suddenly pulled out of the Animus and have to work around in the Abstergo office which looks great visually but the tasks are super boring and tedious. There are like five outfits and none of them look great. The only nail which it hits right is the music and sea shanties. Taunting the soldiers was hilarious and dual-wield swords were not at all utilized properly. The ending connects to the beginning of AC 3 which I loved.

One of my favorite games. They say that of all the AC games this is the best, well I totally agree.

Good storyline.

Lots of side quest that makes the game more enjoyable.

Above-average stealth difficulty.

Would be 10/10 if Capt. Jack Sparrow has a cameo.

Ubisoft redeemed their self with this game. They steered away from the same formula and put in some pirates which was cool!

While some core mechanics could still be improved, Black Flag's story, world, and systems come together to form a markedly better and more cohesive game than Assassin's Creed III. It's not only the best Assassin's Creed game to date, but also one of the best games for pirate fans to embark on as well.

The amazing world of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has kept me gladly occupied for longer than any other game in the series, even though its story isn’t the strongest. At no point in my dozens of hours was I ever at a loss for something to do. Simply sailing wherever the wind takes me and seeing what sort of trouble I can get into is a complete joy. Beyond the underwhelming main campaign, Black Flag delivers a world brimming with gorgeous places to go, amazing secrets to discover, and nefarious pirates to stab.
