Sucked me right in
14 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't tend to be a dyed-in-the-wool Assassin's Creed fan (I played "II", but it wasn't really my cup of tea), but there's an insatiable pull to "Black Flag": that of being a pirate! A bona fide scoundrel, with your own ship, crew and engrossing sandbox that is the high seas. It's still an Assassin's Creed game, and there's plenty of stalking, climbing and stabbing to be done, but that was all kind of a distraction; I couldn't give a rip about pausing the action just to hack a computer in a neighboring office - I just wanted to get back to the plundering. There's an unbelievable variety of missions and side projects to do here - upgrading your ship, building an armada and rankling the British Navy - this thing would have me playing in three-hour stretches.

Part of my problem with AC is that I'd felt like I'd been plopped into a story-in-progress with "ACII", so if I'd bothered to do some reading on what Abstergo and the Animus is, I might've cared more. But coming to this just for its likable main character and thrilling sense of adventure, "Black Flag" delivers the goods. I had a lot of fun with this.
