Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag - Freedom Cry Review | Hardcore Gamer

Hardcore Gamer: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag didn’t entirely feel like an entry in the main series. Naturally, there was the familiar conflict we’ve been following indistinctly, as well as a main character whose life transforms after donning the signature outfit. Most of the features made a return as well, with an assortment of jaded figures to pardon from life, and a large, detailed map littered with diversions to explore. It’s strange, then, that its most distinguishable asset came by way of a makeover. With a passable tale as a compass, its piratical world was a boundless playground, offering a level of freedom formerly only teased. This makes it all the more surprising that its DLC, Freedom Cry, has a shocking and almost cynical lack of freedom for a story about an escaped slaved. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 4/5

This should have been included in the original game for free.

this is seriously one of the best dlc's I have ever played..just finished it and I really hope they dont forget about Adewale. He is an awesome character and deserves AT LEAST a vita spin off or something
