AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag.jpgAfter putting in about 64 hours into Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag it’s time for a review.  Have said it a bunch of times all ready but will say it again this is the best Assassin’s Creed game.  Took a look at my save files from the past AC games and by far I have spent more hours playing this one and was never board once.  The controls are the best they every have been.  Simple but very effective.  Mind you one do run into AC rage every know again.  That it when you are running along planning your root but the guy will climb up the wrong thing or get stuck.  What really pulled me into this game was all the side stuff and exploring the world.  The world is big and beautiful.  There are very little load times.  You can be on a small island.  Run to your ship and set sail.  Have a ship battle and there is no loading.  Wasn’t too sure if I would like the ship/ship combat.  Turns out it is pure awesome.  Not only can you up grade the character you can upgrade your ship.  Doing so is fun, never becomes tedious.

This is the be AC game to date.  All the side missions and exploring are awesome.  The story is very good as well.  The only knock I have about this game is with some of the story missions.  There is far to may eavesdropping ones.  If you don’t do exactly what the games wants you do to you have to start over.  That can be a pain.   All so trying to get a 100% in each mission can be more trouble than its worth.  I am 95% complete in the game.  Have all the missions, side missions, collectibles and upgrades.  All this and stills can’t wait to go back in and play some more.  Just buy this game.  Well worth your time and money.

5 out of 5 GT (GT = Good Times)
