Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review


Anyone who has played even 10 minutes of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise before Black Flag will feel completely at home with the new game. The series, which took players to the American Revolution in the last installment, now gets you to sail the...

Being an Assassin Creed game, it would be remiss for us not to talk about stealth. Black Flag, surprisingly, brings a healthy dose of that for players. Despite being a game focusing on piracy, there are a lot more options and missions for players to...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (PlayStation 4)


Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag puts the franchise back on track with a gorgeous huge open world that's ripe for exploration. It's a must-buy for stealth-action fans.

Exciting stealth-based action. Beautiful next-gen graphics. An expansive open world. Dozens of hours of gameplay on land and at sea

Difficult to control player character at times. Unrealistic NPC movements and interactions

The year is 1715, and lawless pirates dominate the Caribbean Sea. Neither land nor sea is safe from these rapscallions, and the biggest hellraiser of them all is a young captain named Edward Kenway, who explores the waters during piracy's golden age....

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for PC Review


In Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag you've got a game that can be wholly enjoyed by a hardcore fan of the series just as well as a newcomer. Here you've got the roots of the beast in assassin's hood and the feined interest in surprising and sneaking...

Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Review: Pillage and plunder to your heart’s content


AC4 is the most immersive game in the series so far where you will want to get lost in its open world whether it is on land or out at sea.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag Review


The trouble with the ibn-La'Ahad's, the Auditore's , the Kenway's, and the Miles' is that they are absolutely shit at being assassins. For self-confessed members of a shady cult of organised killers, they are rubbish at being just that. Ubisoft would...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (Xbox 360 Version) Review


Another year, another Assassin's Creed game, but Black Flag features some swashbuckling new features from previous years. Are they to treasure or should this game walk the plank?

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag: Sailing the high seas


Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, more than any other game I've ever played, is less of a game and more a collection of toys that happen to have a story connecting them. Regardless of where I'm sending Edward or why, my face erupts into a huge smile...

Stunning world full of fun activities, tremendously engaging naval combat, Edward Kenway is fun to play

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review


I will freely admit that I had my reservations about Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. I loved last year's Assassin's Creed III and had no qualms about rewarding Ubisoft for a fantastically ambitious project, recognizing the many upgrades and additions...

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag PS4 review: Avast, conspiracy ahead


Here are just some of the things you can do in Assassin's Creed 4: climb a tower, hunt a whale, hide in a haystack, steer a ship in a storm, stick a sword through a man's eye socket, shoot an iguana, stab a shark, stand atop a church balcony and...

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a young British man with a thirst for danger and adventure, who falls from privateering for the Royal Navy into piracy as the war between the major Empires comes to an end. Edward is a...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag


Did you like the naval seafaring bits in Assassin's Creed III? Then you're going to absolutely adore Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The majority of the game involves sailing all over the bloody place, from the exotic climes of Havana to the lawless...

A solid but ultimately uninspired instalment in the series, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is comprised of ideas that are starting to wear thin. Anything but a major overhaul will do for the next game, especially given the fact that next-gen is almost...
