Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review – PlayStation 4

5.0
Verdict: It's ironic that the best Assassin's Creed game in the series to date has the least to do with the core premise upon which the franchise was founded.  Sure, there are Assassins and Templars, cool hooded cloaks, fancy parkour moves, swords, pistols, and even that blue/red/gold instinctual hunter...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

3.9
Verdict: Man the cannons and brace for impact, because Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is here to blow up any preconceived notions you had about the annual franchise. 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.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review

4.6
Verdict: ( Please note, this review was written from a PS4 review build of the game, we're currently updating our "Platform Reviewed" tags - Ed. ) As a fan of the Assassin's Creed series from the problematic but potential-ridden series opener, it's been a rollercoaster ride of triumphs and tragedies as the...

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

4.5
Verdict: An ambitious start for Assassin's Creed on next-gen. The vibrant Caribbean world and bloody piracy shine brightest, while the only sour notes come from contrived series story beats and repetitive missions--both need rethinking for AC5.
Pros: Beautiful, vast open world, Edward Kenway is an excellent rogue, Top-notch side-missions
Cons: Main missions suffer from repetition, Assassin's Creed lore has devolved to nonsense, Very few actual assassinations

Game Review: Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

4.6
Verdict: Meet Edward Kenway, the son of AC3 's Haytham Kenway and the grandparent of Connor. Edward is a pirate that loves to be free, sail the seven seas and loves to live life by the pirate code. Deep down he is just a mere man, that just wants an easily (ish) life and to provide for his loved one.
Pros: A fresh uncomplicated & gripping story +Edward Kenway is likable & charismatic +Gameplay has been simplified for the better +Naval combat has also be improved +Huge open world +Tons of replay value +Beautiful Visuals
Cons: Running up the wrong wall/tree unintentionally can be very irritating, Still no crouch button

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

4.0
Verdict: As near as I can tell, general fan reaction to the Assassin's Creed series hit its zenith with Assassin's Creed II: Brotherhood and seemed to level out with Revelations, before taking a rather precipitous dive with the release of Assassin's Creed III – a game that all but the hardcore fans found...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

4.2
Verdict: Assassin's Creed IV was quite the ride. Bringing new meaning to the phrase "a pirate's life for me," it was such a step up from the third entry that many fans are now clamoring for a full-on pirate spinoff series. Honestly?

Assassins Creed IV Black Flag

4.8
Verdict: Ubisoft released Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on October 29th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U. While we reviewed Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on PlayStation 3 ( read review ), the new release on PlayStation 4 definitely deserves a second look.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

4.0
Verdict: Assassin's Creed is a franchise that is very close to my heart. AC1 was one of the first games I played on my Xbox 360 and the second game I played on my PS3 (the inaugural game had to be Metal Gear Solid 4) and I have been fascinated with the franchise ever since.
Pros: good story, large open world, varied gameplay
Cons: textures still draw, some missions are repetitive, combat is still mechanical

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Freedom Cry Review

4.0
Verdict: The Freedom Cry DLC for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag puts you behind the scarred, tattooed visage of Adéwalé (Adé). Adé was quartermaster to the star of the main game, Edward Kenway.
Pros: ○ Adé is a great Assassin ○ Inexpensive ○ New equipment is a good addition
Cons: ○ Critical path is a bit short ○ Eavesdropping missions ○ Open world is kind of empty

Ashraf Ismail's Pirates!

4.5
Verdict: I'm still waiting until we get a modern assassin game out of this universe, but until then Black Flag breathes a whole new energy back into the series. It also looks stunning on the PlayStation 4 and offers a lot of bang for your buck.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review (PS4)

4.8
Verdict: In Black Flag , the Caribbean is yours for the taking, and it doesn't take long before the game sets you loose on the world with your own ship, your own crew, and an enormous amount of things to find and do. Gone are the days of the naval portions being cordoned off from the rest of the game.
Pros: The Golden Age of Piracy, So many things to see and do around the world.., ...and a massive vibrant world to contain all these things, Free running feels improved, Beautiful visuals, Being a pirate, in every way
Cons: Tailing targets and remaining unseen gets repetitive, The freedom of the pirate makes the Assassin feel limited, Too many distractions can mean you take too long to finish a review

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

4.6
Verdict: If you have played Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on either the PlayStation 3 or the XBox 360 and own one of the next-gen consoles, then there's no real reason to upgrade. However if you missed the game and now own the PlayStation 4, than Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag is a truly amazing ride on...

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

4.0
Verdict: Hands up if you've grown tired of the Assassin's Creed franchise over the past few years. There's probably a lot of you. After progressive sequels in the shape of Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood , the yearly cycle of historical hood-wearing and neck stabbing began to grow stale.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (PS4)

4.5
Verdict: Assassin's Creed II was the perfect sequel. It bettered the troubled original in every way and delivered a game that was as much about exploration and the wonderful sense of discovery as it was its titular killing.

From Liberation to liberator.

3.0
Verdict: As the sea-faring partner in crime to Edward Kenway, Jackdaw quartermaster Adewale often projected a sense of self that made him a ripe candidate for the assassins. Adewale is now ready to forge own path, though Freedom Cry is just a small window into Adewale's solo exploits; we don't bear witness...
Pros: Adewale is a great character to know and to play, A good mix of required and optional missions
Cons: Constant spawning detracts from the main story, Poor execution of incentivizing the freeing of slaves

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag -- Freedom Cry

3.5
Verdict: One of my biggest complaints with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was that I rarely actually cared about Edward's story as I sailed across the Caribbean. Well, I'm happy to say that the Freedom Cry DLC tells the emotional story of Adewale, Edward Kenway's one-time first mate, as it dives into some...
Pros: Powerful storytelling, Great characters, Gorgeous setting
Cons: Bland missions, Minimal exploration

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag PS4 review – video game piracy

3.5
Verdict: Frustratingly shallow and hamstrung by underdeveloped gameplay mechanics, and yet somehow the fact that that an open world pirate game exists at all is enough to provide a certain amount of fun.
Pros: Enormous game world with an almost endless array of things to see and do. Fun new present day sections and enjoyable naval battles. Generally good graphics, for a current gen port
Cons: None of the gameplay elements stand up to close scrutiny and the artificial intelligence is extremely basic. Meandering plot and largely uninteresting characters

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry Review

4.0
Verdict: Ubisoft cranks out a brand-new Assassin's Creed game once a year. I should know. I've played every single Assassin's Creed to date, blazing a trail of silently stabbed corpses in marathon play sessions, hungrily gobbling up every twist and turn in the franchise's convoluted narrative.
Pros: More pirating, battling, plundering, diving, Adewale is an interesting character for players of all backgrounds, Liberating slave ships requires you to master high-seas combat and stealth, Try a swash-buckling assault on a plantation and owners might kill the slaves you've come to free, Machete and...

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

4.0
Verdict: 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.
Pros: Exciting stealth-based action. Beautiful next-gen graphics. An expansive open world.
Cons: Difficult to control player character at times. Unrealistic NPC movements and interactions

A Great Pirate Adventure - not quite Assassin's Creed

3.0
Verdict: Great game. I just wouldn't put it in the Assassin's Creed franchise. First off, your character Captain Kenway is not of the Assassin lineage or has anything to do with them; you just 'obtain' the clothing, set sail and are eventually adopted by the Assassin brotherhood.

Excellent Game

5.0
Verdict: I can't believe there are so few reviews for this game. I guess everyone is busy playing it. I would suggest upgrading your ship with wartime features (not sails and ornate wheels) before you go too far into the story progress.
Pros: I still love AC Brotherhood the best but AC4 really was incredibly well done. The story line and settings are fantastic. You live the life of a pirate properly and travel from island to island with many missions for lots of gameplay hours.
Cons: The legendary ships are way too hard and I only got one of them using a cheat I saw on youtube. There was a real lack of community challenges for a while and you need them to gain certain items in the captains cabin. Occasionally some glitching and the game froze.

5.0
Verdict: Graphically, this is a pretty major improvement. This game visuals are much clearer and more vivid. The characters clothing are all outstanding as well. Combat of the game is quicker and a bit more complicated, but not particularly difficult to get used to. The world is more open to exploration

Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (PS4)

5.0
Verdict: For those who have played past Assassins Creed games this is an excellent addition to the series, for those that haven't, maybe it's time to try one. In feel it, has the feel of the original or AC2, which to me is better than some of the more recent ones.

Great Value

4.0
Verdict: Even though it's not technically a next gen console game, AC4 is one of the few games currently available on the PS4 that will occupy many hours. Excellent execution of the concept, this is the most detailed pirate game you're likely to have ever played.

Must HAVE

4.0
Verdict: I've played all A.C. games and the whole purpose of these games isn't to teach war or kill innocents or for fun, but to learn about history. I learned A LOT about history. i say this because assassins creed games takes place in different time eras like Egypt, London, paris, etc.

Oh! Do, my Johnny Boker, We'll all go on a jamboree........

5.0
Verdict: I would have to say the best one yet! Variety of missions, landscape, ship battles, combat, story. It does have it all, back to its best! As we know though, nothing is perfect. My only issues are eavesdropping missions, the modern day element, I have no interest in sneaking around an office hacking...

Great!

4.0
Verdict: If you are looking for a good bargain and don't own assassin's creed black flags this is a great purchase for less than half of the full game and 4 to 5 hours of game play it is fantastic. For $14.99 you get a full game that is worth it and way longer than MGS Ground Zeroes!

Fantastic game spoilt by stupidity
