"Ubisoft steers Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag towards a slightly new direction by emphasizing exploration. Also, pirates. We go eyes-on with a good, long look at the game.
If it’s one thing the Assassin’s Creed franchise has done well, it’s secretly force-feeding us history lessons. The historical context, colorful characters, and exploration associated with pirates has some of our attention."
