“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.
Video games cost so much money now a days. I got laid off a while ago, and I am not going to be able to get none of the new consoles. I really want the ps4, because it is cheaper. I am holding myself back from buying new games because I want them for the next gen consoles. The only reason I think that cause if I’m playing the games on the old gen in the back of my head I’m going to have this little voices saying that there is a better version out there. I do not like that, so I am going to have to wait. Which that means I have to get a job that also means I will have to save money. I really want to play assassins creed 4, mostly because I like pirates. That will probably be the first game I get for the PS4.
It was announced at the GameStop Expo that all store managers will be getting a PS4 plus seven games on the release date. I think that it is a very smart move for Sony to do this. If customers come in asking question about the new system, they are more likely to have an answer for them now. It is said that all 4,400 GameStop managers are going to get hands on training for the PS4 and Xbox One. That being said I think that it was a good idea on PS4’s part because when you would ask a GameStop employee what console they recommend they will probably lean towards the PS4 because it is something they have, and something they are use to. The seven games that GameStop managers are going to get are Killzon: Shadow Fall, NBA 2K14, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Need for Speed; Rivals, Battlefield 4. The managers are also getting Beyound: Two Souls, but that’s only for the PS3. Now that sounds like a good selection of games, but I can’t say that for all of them, because the only game I would probably get is Battlefield 4. Only because I played battlefield 3, and that game is beautiful on PS3. Its not a for sure thing if the GameStop managers are also going to get a Xbox One, but that is something that Xbox should do just for marketing reasons. Witch I think they probably will because Xbox has been listening to the community on changing the features for the Xbox One and that’s just goes to show they have a open mined. I’ve always seen my self as an Xbox person, but being thin on money I am going to go for the PS4 only because of the price. In my opinion they are both amazing game systems.
