Rated 10 out of 10 by PartingGlass Satisfying
Assassin's creed Black Flag IV is a great and incredible game. Once you start playing, you have to finish it. To be honest, I haven't been a huge fan of the franchise. But after this game and it's storyline, it makes me want to play all the other ones. Not only do you have the main missions, but there are many side activities and missions as well. The fact that you get to control a pirate ship and sail across a vast ocean is awesome. Also, when you get in conflict against enemy ships, the variety of weapons and choices you have on your ship makes it extremely fun. In the campaign, it can be fairly easy. On the other hand, there will be times where you have to think, look, and be aware of your surroundings. The protagonist in the game, Edward Kenway, is a great character. Not only him but the supporting characters are incredible too. When the game was coming to an end, it made me want more. My favorite part of the game was the ending. The soundtrack was heart-wrenching, satisfying, and summed up the game. But overall, loved it! And I would recommend it to any who loves a good storyline!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Zahl Best Assassin's Creed Title to Date
All I can say is "Wow". This game is so masterfully made. It's beautiful, it's exciting. You feel like you're really in the world of pirates.
Everything about this game is amazing. The combat from foot to ship, the motion from foot to ship and the scenery from foot to ship!
This is by far the most exciting Assassin's Creed and I can't wait to see what could follow up such a masterpiece.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Dburns621 Simply Amazing!
The game is addicting unlike all the other Assassins Creed. Theirs is a unique genre to the game that allows you explore so much more content then all the other Assassins Creeds. From Island to Island it's a mystery and you will become hooked on the fact of treasure hunting (which is only one of the addicting factors of this game). The story of the game is just simply amazing and the game never ends once you complete the full story mode. For me it’s rare to be beat a game and still have the enthusiasm to keep wanting the play the story mode. This game by far blew my expectations of me wanting to keep pirating, exploring, and not be bored of the same repetitive game play. I strongly recommend anybody that wants a game to kill time, this is your game by far. I mean who doesn’t like grand theft auto in the Caribbean’s, also seeing how old school warfare was back in the day at first hand.
Rated 9 out of 10 by BUG11 Assassins and pirates need I say more
The premise of all assassin's creed games are the same but adding in the ability to sail my ship pillaging and plundering made this game great. Hunting for whales was undeniable satisfying. Attacking other ships and taking their goods excellent but being able to take that ship into your owe fleet for side jobs was a stroke of brilliance. This alone would have kept my interest in the game but the story was interesting as well, I can't say it was my favorite story line that still remains with Ezio but it was a good story line none the less. I think that the fact that Ubisoft can release a new game every year with 2 coming out in 2014 is amazing. Go ahead grab your hidden blade and take down some Templers. Good gaming friends.
Rated 10 out of 10 by CBEAR465 ASSASSINS CREED GOD
Since the release of assassins creed 2 there really hasn't been a good assassins creed game in a while, UNTIL NOW !!!! This game was god, the gameplay was amazing, the graphics were out of this world, the sound around you was straight up amazing to listen to and to hear the animals run in the grass or when a jaguar pounces at you was just excellent. The story was compeling and I couldn't wait to get to the next mission fast enough. The online is still as its always been but for some reason I'm having more fun with this one than the others. This game hasn't left the inside of my Xbox one yet and I 98% completion for this game. For all you assassins creed fans out there get this game because you don't want to miss the awesomeness that it holds in store. GET THIS GAME .. it also tells you what assassins creed 5 is going to be and 6

Rated 10 out of 10 by WickedJester Makes you feel like a pirate
The guys at Ubisoft have always been amazing at creating a historical fiction atmosphere in Assassins Creed and they certainly deliver in Black Flag. The way they connect your plundering to actually history is incredible. They really do make you feel like you're in that time period. They stepped up their game when it came to combat and sound. Your assassin's character moves even better when fighting with cooler combos than pervious AC. The thing that impressed me the most in this game is the sound throughout; swimming and especially running through water sounds amazingly real. Sword swipes and fighting sounds are on point. If you have ever been to the Bahamas you will appreciate how well done the graphics are. Bottom line, what couldn't you enjoy about plundering, killing, stealing, and increasing your reputation among the sea?
Rated 6 out of 10 by XboxeDPlayerHashassins Was Not Impressed
This game was good to play to finsih the rest of the Desmond story, but left me dissatisfied and left wanting, Assassins Creed lll was better than this, It had it's fun moments of the new features you may do. but the things that left me most upset was how little the Assassin's were valued in this Game Like they were worthless and less Educated/knowledgable with their Creed unlike Altair and Ezio they were plain and boring and their hideout seemed way too exposed and obvious to find, Edward annoyed me for some reason, FYI people he's not considered an "Official" Asssassin just like Ah Tabai said and no where in the book does it say you can wear the robes and consider yourself one. Also upsetting was wanting to know who you're playing as once you're out of the Animus, You're Definetly not Desmond for sure IDK I didn't like this game out of all the AC'S People are already going to be "Butthurt" just by reading this but this is what I saw and thought of this game, If you can agree to some of these great, if you can't and want to start a chat war be my guest but I won't reply (Only if you need to be corrected to the most obvious things). I hope next Assassin's Creed doesn't dissapoint and has more to it
Rated 9 out of 10 by AH717 Excellent Graphics, Keeps You On The Edge
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is one of those generation games that has been forged throughout cycle’s of video game consoles. Franchises that are well known have adapted over to the Xbox One and Playstation IV. Assassin’s Creed has stepped forth into the next generation console era with Black Flag. As the main character, Edward Kenway manages to steal a Pirate ship and aspires to live life in the luxury with his maiden lover by his side. The details to the landscaping and background to the game, which changes as you progress through the game, is outstanding. Assassin’s Creed game is set in the Caribbean. Wonderful visual effects abound in the game and are found in the landscapes that are shifting from islands to docks of congested cities as the gamer sails in giant boats across the ocean’s tides. Game play moves with fast pace, making any player feel bad’ass when taking out multiple guards with ease. Animals scurrying around islands to hunt for upgrades in supplies, but immerses the character into a realistic environment. Steering boats or engaged in sea battles is frustrating until understanding the controls. Set voyage beyond the Caribbean Sea and become an entitled ‘Assassin’. Great game – Allen Harrison
Rated 9 out of 10 by SakariKai Big Improvement From III
I played Assassins Creed from the beginning and found it an inconsistent game series. I hated one, love the Ezio trilogy, then went back to hating three so much I could hardly finish it. Thank you Ubisoft for getting it together!
The story held my interest fairly well but the thing I found I loved the most in the game is the exploration and traveling. This is one game I found myself going out of my way to do things. I'd be sailing and see a plantation and the next thing you know I'm hiding in bushes just to collect the sugar.
Compared to the last AC game, this one is a huge step back in the right direction.
