Trivia

Edward's voice actor, Matt Ryan chose to voice him with a Mancunian accent (a dialect of English spoken in the English city of Manchester.) However, after the game developers heard his natural Welsh accent, they asked if he could voice Edward using his native Welsh accent. As a result, Edward's back story was re-written to have him born in Wales to a farming family. See more »

Goofs

Edward didn't tell Torres the location of the observatory when he was in prison but somehow Torres knows where the observatory is in the final sequence. See more »

Quotes

Charles Vane: I'll gut you, Jack Rackham! I'll open you up, I'll tear out your organs, and string a bloody lute with 'em!
Edward Kenway: Stop your goddamn howling, Vane! There's no bloody use!
Charles Vane: Well, well! The fearsome Edward Kenway speaks, eh? Pray tell us, captain, how to quit this predicament! And tell us what genius you have for sailing a boat with no sails and no rudder!
Edward Kenway: SHUT YOUR GOB!

The best pirate video game I've ever played
31 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Alright. I have only played Sid Meier's Pirates! (PC) and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (PSP) but it still stands.

It's the sixth instalment in the Assassin's Creed series and the familiar game mechanics perfectly suit life on the high seas as a swashbuckling, self-serving, no nonsense pirate.

The ship battles. The choppy voyages in the ocean. The shanties, hidden treasures, multiple factions and the game's economy system mean it is a rewarding play through.

For those familiar to the series Black Flag follows a similar story arch to previous titles: Assassins attempting to thwart the Templars grand plans (albeit from a different angle). But the game's lure isn't in the story line but yet another beautifully constructed sandbox world full of dozens of islands to explore and different types of side missions to embark on. Black Flag isn't a game to be rushed but a world to immerse in and enjoy at your own leisure.

Nevertheless, with the morals of the Creed creeping in it isn't the complete pirate experience but the best one I've had yet.
