“Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag” is the game that “Assassins Creed 3” should have been. Ubisoft entertainment has out done themselves for this new “Assassins Creed” title. AC4 (Assassins Creed 4) takes place in the world of pirates. Who wouldn’t want to plunder a ship with a crew, and take whatever they want. Not to forget the beautify scenery in the Caribbean while taking command of a ship.
Right in the golden age of pirates’ protagonist Edward Kenway goes on the adventure of a life time doing what he does best, and that is whatever he wants. While playing the game players will experience events recorded in history in the golden age of pirates. Historical figures like Black Beard, and James the Kid appear a counts amount of times playing in Mr. Kenway’s adventure. He stumbles in to problems along his journey were he finds himself-asking the question what is the point of enjoying yourself when it has no long term affect for the future. The story in this game is extremely well written with a memorable protagonist.
The game plays the smoothest out of any of the other Assassins Creed games. Switching between target to target taking out the enemy has never been easier in hand to hand combat. Keeping that in mind it makes the game feel a little repetitive, but that is only one mechanic of the game. Digging deeper inside the game the player will soon realize that there is counts amount of things to do in this open world. Going from playing checkers to harpooning a white whale, and everything in between. That is where the game stand out in its individuality. AC4 makes the sea look and feel like the real thing. Sailing in calm water can change any second into a thunder storm with wind pushing the ship that Kenway commands from side to side. From that the player have to navigate their ship though the rough sea with water spouts around every corner.
With next gen graphics AC4 is just amazing to just explore the world. Observing the sun in the game could actually hurts someone’s eyes. Viewing a plan empty field AC4 is much more then it could seem. The wind interacts with everything causing the grass, and leafs to move in certain directions or watching a storm in the distances blow the player’s way. It is all of the small details in this video game which makes it stand out.
Over all this is one of the best games of last year to make it to the next gen consoles. It has action, adventure, and drama all in the right places. If you are looking for a good game to start while testing next gen graphics on a new console Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag is the game for you.
