    Assassin's Creed is back !

    I was very skeptical when this game was announced last year, after just experiencing Assassin's Creed III i wasn't in any hurry to play the next. In my opinion i thought Ubisoft had taken the series back a step and it wa... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

  • Rating:7

    It's a game series that implements loads of ideas okay, rather than doing a few things really well.

    Black Flag is the 4th Assassin's Creed game. Desmond Miles, the modern day protagonist in the Assassin's Creed series has died. Abstergo Industries have taken his memories and are continuing to explore them in their mach... Read Full Review

    It's another AC game...

    There's not much to say about this game that probably hasn't been said. It's a good game, and if you're fairly new to the series, it probably feels like a great game. It looks stunning. It's got a pretty cool story. It's... Read Full Review

    "It definitely excites there's no denying that. But as to the extent, not that much."

    At the time of its announcement shortly just months after Assassin’s Creed III hit the shelves, news of another incoming Assassin’s Creed game was nothing short of controversial. As we all know, the Assassin&... Read Full Review

    AC 4 Black Flag Review

    To be honest this game was the best pirate game ever created. The story was really engaging and sad at the same time, throughout the game, you lose epic friends and allies in sad death scenes. You hunt down a secret are... Read Full Review

    A game that should be considered a work of art.

    I'm in love with Assassin's Creed franchise and what can I say: the game is much better than the third one. A game that you can play either following the main plot or exploring the nearby islands. You have so many thing... Read Full Review

    Dam, and I thought this series was going down the drain.

    I have logged in a fair amount of hours playing most of the assassin creed games in the series, minus assassin's creed liberty. As far as a series goes, I have always enjoy the combat, the graphics, the atmosphere, and t... Read Full Review

    Great game but a few small tweaks desired

    Lemme get this straight, This is the very first game in the Assassin's Creed series I've played. So don't expect me to know everything. And I am only halfway through the game as I write this. This is also the first revie... Read Full Review
