Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

Pursuing The Root Of All Evil

review by Joe Juba on October 29, 2013 at 03:00 AM
  • Concept:
    A hotheaded pirate and his crew gain wealth and infamy on the high seas
  • Graphics:
    The water looks amazing, but the framerate is unstable on current-gen platforms and Wii U
  • Sound:
    The fantastic collection of sea shanties make this my favorite soundtrack in the series
  • Playability:
    Changes to the fast-travel and weapon selection significantly tighten up the on-foot controls. Sailing usually works well, but steering a ship in combat is often more frustrating than fun
  • Entertainment:
    Fun when you're chasing down your interests, but the enthusiasm deflates when working through the campaign missions
  • Replay:
    Moderately High

Game Informer Rating:

Rated 8.25 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Environment I'm not a hardcore gamer, but I just got a PS4 because I wanted to be able to escape every once in a while. This game is perfect, the world of it is incredible, the story is great and the gameplay is challenging enough to keep you invested but simple enough to make you feel like you're halfway decent at gaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite assassins creed i tried other assassins creed and didn't like them. This assassins creed is the best of the "newer" ones in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Assassin's Creed I've played since 2. I haven't picked up an Assassin's Creed game since AC2 on PS3. I was starting to get bored with the series. With Syndicate coming out soon, which looks incredible, I figured "Hey, why not try one of the most recent ones and give it a shot before it comes out to see if things have gotten any better?" To my surprise, I loved it. Pillaging, plundering, taking over ships... It's the whole package. While the other games let you ride horses to other destinations, which became drab after awhile, this one allows you to drive ships around and attack others, taking their goods for your own. It adds an entirely new level of gameplay that I feel the other games lacked. Overall, the game is just flat out fun to play. The graphics, while could be a little better given I'm playing it on a PS4, are still stunning. It looks and feels how I imagined the life of a pirate would be like. I can't wait to try out Syndicate. Thank you, Ubisoft, for giving us the gift of piracy. I'm sorry... "Privateering".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Treasured Booty. The graphics update to this game is certainly a welcomed and gorgeous addition. The environments are lush and verdant. The water is crisp and clean. The whales are large and noisy. After playing this on the PS3 and then immediately on the PS4, it's a very appealing upgrade. The biggest issue is still the free running system. I absolutely hate when Edward just randomly climbs something or jumps into something while pursuing someone. If we could get that little work-around in motion then this would be an absolutely perfect game. The Naval Warfare is the pinnacle of fun in this game. Nothing is quite as thrilling as listening to your crew sing their shanty and then blow a schooner to bits moments later. Never has a pirate game made you feel like you're truly pirating until you shiver some timbers, murder a crew, and steal some rum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Setting The story is really one of the worst in Assassins Creed franchise, but the huge map and fun gameplay makes up for the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best franchise still delivers I've been a huge AC fan since the original. I played them all, including all the DLC, and I got to say, they are still keeping me very interested. My least favorite out of the franchise was revelations, but if that was the only AC game, it would be rated a 10/10, but because people are so used to the franchise, they always expect more and more. This game is just plain amazing, Ubisoft always delivers, so you If you haven't played this yet, this is a must play.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Over rated. Poor Controls I never really cared for the original assasins creed and this is my first return. But to me the controls are nothign great he always accidentally runs up walls when you do not want him to. Prince of persia moves much better. and the story is so dumb. just make it an actual pirate in actual pirate times. not some guys thoughts trying to make a movie or something stupid walking through a building. my last time in the assasins creed genre. it is an ok game but not worth buying. once i finished never gonig back.
