An opinion piece via eGamer in which the author has a rant about the latest Assassin's Creed title, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The game boasts one of the most well-crafted open worlds in gaming history but severely lacks in storytelling cohesion, missing an ocean of potential and ending up feeling a little dead in the water. Enough sea puns now.
Quote: "To put it in a short, curt sentence: Ubisoft is the undisputed champion of disappointment. I can’t even tell if they’re holding back or just completely in over their heads with this franchise. Assassin’s Creed IV manages to be, at the same time, something absolutely special with its beautiful and vibrant open world, its intriguing and captivating setting and its endearing and likeable main character, and yet completely flippant in its storytelling, stumbling over itself and missing the world of potential yet again."
