Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Review (ThisisXbox)

ThisisXbox: "The story of Black Flag and how it is told is a big change for the franchise and in the tale of Edward Kenway the war between the Assassins and Templars comes second place. This makes the game perfect for those that have never tried the franchise but are tempted, as it introduces elements of the Assassin-Templar war without burdening players with it too much. The lack of overall narrative progression might worry long-time fans, but the story also seems to be laying the foundation for future games by introducing a lot of new pieces. The pacing in which the story is told is a much quicker pace than Assassin’s Creed III and almost as soon as you start the game you’ll be thrown into a ragtag ship with a motley crew trying to steer through a raging storm. Very quickly Edward has ‘acquired’ an Assassin’s outfit, hidden blades, a ship and small crew. From that point out the high seas of the Caribbean are yours for plundering alongside famous figures like Black-beard, Calico Jack and Ben Hornigold. In fact there are very few famous pirates that know of Edward Kenway, virtually none!" (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Xbox 360) 8/10
