The Review: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black FlagHow far can you stray from home before it's impossible to ever return? That's the question at the heart of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. It's something that plagues Edward Kenway, the game's hero, as he explores the Caribbean in search of wealth and the dream of returning to England. The open sea is a difficult thing to resist. And who can blame him? Because after this stunning and beautifully realized tale of adventure on the high seas, it's hard to imagine the Assassin's Creed series returning to its landlocked roots.
The world of Black Flag is nothing short of awesome. It holds the most expansive setting in the history of the franchise. Cities like Havana and Nassau reflect the series' trademark attention to detail, from the stonework cathedrals of the former to the ramshackle taverns of the latter. Then there are the remote islands and underwater shipwrecks waiting to be explored.
What makes Black Flag so special is the way it captures the thrill of sailing the open sea. It's more than the spectacle of a humpback whale leaping into the air and spraying the deck of your ship, or the sound of your crew breaking out into a sea shanty just as the sun is beginning to set across the horizon. It's the feeling that there's always something out there to be discovered, rewards waiting to be captured no matter who's standing in your way, even if that means fighting through some dirty land-lovers.
Despite the presence of pirates and scoundrels, the world of Black Flag is a gorgeous one. The Assassin's Creed series always had a knack for establishing a sense of place in its dense urban landscapes, and Ubisoft hasn't missed a step in applying that toward the islands and jungles of the Caribbean.
In all honesty, Black Flag is among the best in the Assassin’s Creed franchise because of its change of pace from the usual linear assassin role. It really does put you in a cool, pirate-themed world and you’ll spend hours just fiddling your feet around sand and launching cannons at your adversaries in the high seas. If anything, it’s worth the $8 down at G2A so you should pick it up.
