About

Assasin's Creed IV: Black Flag is a pirate game. Being the fourth “numbered” instalment in the series, the story follows a new protagonist, Edward Kenway, who tries to build his Pirate Republic. Help legendary pirates like "Blackbeard", Charles Vane and other well-known pirates establish their empire while fighting the mystery of the Observatory - something very valuable for the Templars. Also, you will have to continue your infiltration in Abstergo and discover some new details about itself.

Although being in the Assasin's Creed series, the game provides you with some new mechanics. Giving the player full control of the ship, you will have to cross the open-world sea and fight for your piracy. Ships will be sinking, destroyed and massacred. If you prefer exploring, a whole new underwater world is ready for you with its beauty and danger lurking in the streams of Carribeans. Experience the pirate life at its best. (?) (needs a better ending)

Am a huge fan of AC, but Black Flag, widely praised as one of the best of the series, made me think if I ever would like to continue following. The map is very expansive in a bad way, it offers to much and you don’t feel like you are in an exact place. Previous games managed to convey the feeling of the time and space they were set in, and Black Flag does not. The sea travel was quite tedious for me, so crossing the seas to follow the main story was the greatest pain in the ass in the game. Boarding and unboarding in the areas with no ports were a real time-consuming headache. Overall I’d say that at this point AC became too epic for me, for I am a fan of smaller games.
Скорее всего, у меня она останется наиболее любимой частью серии AC. И Эдвард понравился мне даже больше, чем Эцио Аудиторе. Все дело не только в сеттинге (а я обожаю пиратскую тематику), но и в сюжете, который подается весьма необычно для этой серии. Ведь Эдвард становится ассасином далеко не сразу, и мы видим, как обстоятельства подводят его к этому. Путь вышел очень тяжелым. Я поняла окончательно, что люблю эту игру, когда увидела покойных пиратов, сидящих за одним столом. Но и до этого я получала нескончаемое удовольствие, обшаривая каждый уголок Карибского архипелага, направляя свой корабль против волн под бодрые песни шанти, любуясь бликами солнца на бирюзовой воде. По той же причине я сейчас очень жду Skull & Bones от Ubisoft.  Может, AC4 и не лучшая игра про ассасинов, но для меня она уж точно лучшая игра про пиратов.  Отзыв посвящен памяти Энн Бонни и Мэри Рид.
