Gaming Union: "Since it first arrived on the scene, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has grown considerably. There have been over 10 titles on numerous platforms and in some ways, it started to suffer from a bit of burnout. This was somewhat evident when Assassin’s Creed 3 released last year. It still received praise from many quarters, but the spark of the first three main games wasn’t quite there. With Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Ubisoft are looking to rectify that while also expanding upon the successes of the previous game."
