Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag is the best assassin's creed title I have ever played! There are so many pros to this game. I might get some heat for this, but I have played AC Brotherhood, Revelations, and AC3. I could not finish any of those games because I would just lose interest. But this one really nails it. I haven't finished it yet, but I have been playing it now for 4 straight days after coming home from school. Now that it is February break I am constantly playing it about 4-6 hours a day. Anyways let's get to the pros and cons
-The battle on the seas is incredible, and my favorite part of the game. From firing off mortars at different ships, to upgrading your own ship, to sending off ships you captured to do trades, it is just incredible
-The Blowpipe is really cool and makes me laugh every time one of the enemies goes berserk against his own allies.
-So much exploration. The map is huge and will take you DAYS maybe even weeks to explore all of the map.
-The combat system is always good, but they stepped it up even more in this game, maybe it's just because I like seeing my character using a sword to defeat enemies on another ship, but it is still pretty epic
-I can get lost in the storyline it is so good. Surprising events every mission
-The missions themselves are awesome as one will be all stealth and the next will be all about action
-there really aren't too many cons, but the game did take about an hour before I started to really get lost in it
-even though ship battles are awesome, sometimes when there aren't any ships to fight and you are only sailing to a mission far away, it can get a little boring
THIS GAME IS AMAZING, I give it a 10/10
I can only think of how great it would be on the Xbox One
I was really skeptical about getting this game because the one before it was kind of a let down. That is not the case with this game at all. Black Flag has brought the games series back to life for me. I can not wait till another one comes out.
