Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a very ambitious game. All the details that surfaced around the launch of the game seemed to indicate that this was going to be a departure for the series. We learned that this game will take place in the early 1700′s while Assassin’s Creed III took place in the late 1700′s, we found out that this game will not include the main protagonist of all four previous games; Desmond Miles, we even learned that the game is going to focus on the naval aspects of Assassin’s Creed III. All those facts point to a game that is trying to buck the trend and be something different. In some ways the game succeeds but offering players a vast amount of area to explore and engage with. In other ways, this game fails to capture the traditional Assassin’s Creed feeling that the others games held. However, the question on everyone’s mind is; Is this game any good?
