It is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established a lawless pirate republic. Among these outlaws is a fearsome young captain named Edward Kenway. His exploits earn the respect of pirate legends like Blackbeard, but draw him into an ancient war that may destroy everything the pirates have built.

All is forgiven. It seemed for a long time that the Assassin's Creed series was going to become the EA Sports of AAA gaming (a new one released every year with one new feature and a graphics update). Black Flag took the innovative idea of the previous year and made it the best and most engaging aspect of this edition. I, of course, mean the sailing and naval battles. The experience has been streamlined from Assassin's Creed III and plays a more central role in the story and gameplay. This also means that the assassinations are more akin to the original games and combat makes you feel like a real pirate.

I think that I'm going to leave the series now, since the lore is becoming more obscure and harder to follow. It's still a good series but it lost sight of the titular career path around the third game. Black Flag might have been better as a standalone game that used the Assassin's Creed model (even if it sold worse), instead of another installment of the series. At least then it would have been possible to extend the sailing mechanics into other games and explore the concept further.

The sun, the waves, the smell of salt in the air. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag offers an amazing pirate adventure experience. [Nov 2013]

This is by far my favorite Assassins Creed. The sailing aspect of it alone was good enough to be an entire game. The only downside is that it doesn't connect to the story of the rest of the series as much as I think it should.

Ironically enough for a game which centers around the concept of genetic ancestry, however, it continually lets itself down by refusing to break away from its own tired and worn-out heritage,

Fans that were bummed out by Assassin’s Creed III will most likely find Black Flag to be a welcoming return to what they love about the series, with a great story, amazingly crafted world and smart additions to the sailing that make it a refreshing part of the Assassin’s Creed formula.

The Assassin's Creed series is teetering on the brink of saturation. Credit to Black Flag for escaping that fate thanks to its interesting and innovative mechanics. Naval exploration brings in several additional hours of gameplay, which along with its competent plot contribute to make Black Flag the best Assassin's Creed game since the second chapter of the series.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a game that feels locked between two worlds. Not only between to generations of consoles but between a run of the mill AC-game and an astonishing pirate game. It’s not only a well needed spark to the series as much it’s a redefining of it. Everything that is use is great and everything old feels like it should be thrown overboard. Try it regardless of your thoughts about earlier Assassin’s Creed games.

With a great cast of characters and a huge world to explore, this next-generation sequel is the best installment since Assassin's Creed II.

Makes up for the failings of AC3, delivering a fantastic, engaging open world experience. [Jan 2014, p.78]
