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)

Compared to AC 2, the Game unfortunately can't keep up, but I find the Part better than AC 3. Still, I think the Game succeeded very well, why? Especially the Atmosphere of the Caribbean was able to inspire me a Lot, but also the Opportunity to move through the Areas as a Pirate. Basically, as always, all Possibilities are open to you in this Game, once started you can move freely, either by Ship through the Waters or To create Chaos on land. If Progress continues in the Game, you can fully upgrade your Ship to gain an Advantage over other Ships. The Naval Battles are enthusiastic, in my Opinion even the better Combat System has been applied here than with Swords, Knives and Pistols. Above all, it seems more varied and interesting. If you are not looking for battle, you can't get around, can explore countless Areas and solve various Mini games on small Islands, start trading with the AI or simply Manage the Fleet. Of Course, you can also go on a treasure Hunt and feel like the young Jim Hawkins on Treasure Island. But cautiously: In itself, the Principle is nothing New, old warmed up and packed with new Graphics and new Atmosphere. In the End everything runs up again from A to B, don't get caught here and there, remain Unrecognized, follow out inconspicuously etc. Can become Boring in the Long run, but it doesn't have to. In The end, I still found the Game very entertaining, tied myself up and I would buy it – for small Money – over and over again.

Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag was the best Part I've played and I've got everyone through. Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag is finally based on new Ideas and comes away from this Cityonly Scenario like 1 to 2 and their Add-ons. There are many options here and Money is important and not so easy to get until the Middle of the Game. However, Assassin'S Creed® IV Black Flag is not only on the Water, but there are also several old Towns and there is also much to discover on the big Map thanks to several small Islands or Fortresses to conquer. This alone is very extensive but you can also do a lot else, e.g. upgrade your Ship, upgrade its Montage, improve its Pirate Hideout, Send your own Pirate ships on Catery from North America to South America, Africa and Europe. But That's not enough to uncover many Secrets, for example of Mayan stones or Templars, or bottle mail and Treasure Cards. Yes you have read correctly you can also find over 24 Treasures if you are not too doof of course. Graphically, Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag easily outbid the other Parts because if son storm breaks loose on the Sea you also need a Dose of Luck because of the Lightning, Tornadoes and Giant Waves. The Entry of other Ships is a lot of fun and sometimes the Crew also sings Pirate Songs. There are also Legendary Ships on the Edge of the Map, but these are Fortresses so it doesn't try until so early. Storywise, there is an Octarium. With this you can observe People at Any Time, so like sone Crystal ball, only that you always need blood drops from the one you want to observe. But The own Character you play only gradually switches to the Assasins. Conclusion: Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag is one of new successful and compared to other Brands no other CoD or so you can really make a lot the big Card is very extensive and what I've enumerated is added. But that is what you can find a Mistake in the Hair.
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.
