Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review – Insert Pirate Joke Here I TheKoalition

Thomas Chamberlain of TheKoalition writes:
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag brings the eighth main Assassin's Creed game into the pirate era, creating a swashbuckling adventure that spans a massive fascinating Caribbean world. The sense of adventure, discovery, and debauchery produces a stark contrast to the bland, quiet atmosphere embodied in Connor's Assassin's Creed III and builds an unmissable experience that everyone should play. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 90/100

Glad to hear that the differences are only minimal on the next-gen version. Definitely picking this up asap.

I'm not glad that the differences are minimal. They should be big differences there in terms of graphics.

It's not surprising with a cross platform game. When they eventually make a next-gen exclusive you'll then see huge graphical improvements.

How about Watch Dogs? I thought the reason they delayed it was because the game looked like crap on current gen consoles.

There is, I'm just tried of repeating myself.

Note to everyone: For the first few hours of the game, you're going to be slow traveling everywhere you go on ship. Which, doesn't so so bad at first, but it will get repetative. Remember how it with LoZWW was when you had to sail across the ocean until you found warp points. Imagine that with more grind, rarely a straight course due to a few aggressive ships, no ability to control the wind, and a storms.

Admitedly the world is larger and a feels more alive when compared to ACIII. But a lot of it does feel far more tedious and even grindy. As there are a couple of points in the story where the Jackdaw needs to have certain upgrades to proceed.

Still a great game - but also has that excrutiationgly slow pace feeling that the first AC game had when you weren't in a city.
