It is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established a lawless pirate republic. Among these outlaws is a fearsome young captain named Edward Kenway. His exploits earn the respect of pirate legends like Blackbeard, but draw him into an ancient war that may destroy everything the pirates have built.

This Game Looks Sick!
Location: Greensboro, NC
I am a big Assassin's Creed fan and i loved Far Cry 3 so i'm excited what they have to bring to the table. AC3 was a good game but i think the american revolution wasn't the best era. America is a boring place for the AC series but the Carribean sounds like it would be great. i pre-ordered the game because i am excite for it and i'm a true AC fan. if you don't like it then no one is forcing you to buy it and a lot of other people are true fans.
honestly im not gonna lie but because of the boat theme of this people who are just getting into this might not enjoy this title but considering how fun it was in AC3 im wondering how ubisoft might change the controls for the ship parts because it didn't seem fun to me untill i got all the ship upgrades so now i can't get enough of it if theres a tutorial like there was in the 3rd i can see it going ok but if it were to go to greater lengths then i can see it being amazing and i hope that all the same upgrades are in the ship from the last game in terms of gameplay it might be the same as AC3 so there won't be any problems there.
Honestly looking forward to this very much!! The trailer, the gameplay, the setting, the characters..EVERYTHING looks massively interesting. And those who are sick of Ubisoft releasing AC yearly, even though it's yearly, they actually have been working on this since 2010. I'm just glad they are not compromising, like Capcom compromised with DMC and killed the franchise by releasing DmC (just saying since I am huge fan of DMC and they ruined it). I'll stick to the AC franchise till the end unless, Ubisoft become like Capcom and kills off this franchise (which I highly doubt they will. I hope they know what's good for them unlike Capcom)

Review 5 for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
Ubisoft has never let me down I love history and Assassin's Creed has offered that to me. This is the most looking ac game yet cant wait for the collection to come out.
I love the AC games. but i must that Connors story in ACIII was not a very good follow up to ezio. he lacked personality and character. I honestly Feel that they may have something in ACIV with edward kenway goin in to the golden age of piracy. The pirate captains had lots of character and if ubisoft comes through on a great story to back up that character than this one could be the best one yet. With a great character to get behind like ezio combined all the unique gameplay like ACIII had with more action and less distraction then the have a win win game that could go far.

Pirates are a good thing.
Location: Vancouver, WA
I just pre-ordered Assassins Creed IV. Sure the free poster was a bonus but I got it just for the game. For all you waiting for this game, pre-order it now. The poster has a map on the back. This can give you a jump start on all the treasure and targets. Each location is marked with an Assassins logo. If the trailer is as good as it looks. This game would be by far one of the best. Sure the first Creed had alot of people to kill. For me it was to overwhelming. You can argue with Blackbeard about this game but when all is said and done it's the players that will deliver the final verdict.

A New Assassin's Series is Here!!!
Now we follow the Kenways! having played Connor now we play as his Grandfather. Sunken treasure and ship battles galore! I so excited to see the finished product. I Pre-ordered the first day and the double sided poster is excellent. Hopefully more content becomes available! I like the direction it's going in, changes it up and still keeps it fresh. Plus, slaying Templars is always fun.
I was a fan of III when it came out this past year. It's nice to know that Ubisoft is cranking out yearly releases. I'm excited to see the naval gameplay incorporated into the sandbox gameplay! It actually looks like they took the underwater element from last year's Liberation, and also incorporated that, too. Overall, I can't wait to see what Edward Kenway is up against. I hope that Nikolai Orelov gets at least a Vita release. Hopefully a Console/Vita release at the same day like last year!

Firsty, for all of those who continuously put ubisoft down for having yearly AC releases. Quit complaining. The AC games always provide something new, and many of us love being captivated by new eras and protagonists. If you don't like the yearly releases, don't buy the game. If you want ubisoft to move on, they already have. Ubisoft does not solely develop Ac games. They have many others including Far Cry 3 which was killer, and the return of Spliter Cell later this year that definitely looks promising. If you like AC, be excited for this one. If you don't, no one cares.

Only bad thing...
The only bad thing about this game is that we have to wait until October to play it!! If you haven't played any of the Assassins Creed games prior to Black Flag, now's your chance to join in!!
Review 12 for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
There's only one thing I don't like, we have to play as an abstergo agent playing the uploaded memories of William miles. I mean come on, I actually kinda liked the Desmond part. And I still don't get why Shaun and Rebecca didn't hate him a bit after killing Lucy.
but who is edward kenway descented it cant be desmond because he died at the end of AC 3 and the only other person thats connected to his bloodline is he farther and how is then ancient civilaztion fits to this part in time of AC

You did see the women in the vid right? clearly there have been planty of oppertunities for Kenway to make children. They may make it so that ou need to play different characters to play one ancestor. that might be cool.

Ubisoft Strikes Again
I was very skeptical about this one in the leaked info before it was truly announced, but none the less Ubisoft has impressed me. Hopefully they can change the few things that plagued AC3 and offer a new and exciting story to tell. And after this game I want a new modern day Assassin its nice to be part of the game but this is no means a first person game. i thought they learned their lessons in ACR. Maybe you don't have any dedicated missions for that. I guess somethings never change.
I am really looking forward to this game. Assassins Creed 3 was a real good game and from all the signs and trailers this is pointing to be just as good and better! What I'm not so sure about is if your a new gamer to the series of Assassins Creed. If your starting the franchise, go with AC3, for its perfect for beginners! But it's your choice, this game will probably be pretty new user friendly too. OCTOBER 29 OME QUICK!!
Review 17 for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
Location: otsego MN
with the dlc that is out for ac3 i dont think ubisoft is going to stay to the roots of the other games. they may give him "superpowers". and as a sword collector it is not easy to use 2 full langth swords at the same time one sword and a dagger isnt hard but that just isnt realistic if you want it to be ralistic he cant be a bad@$$ in the knew one but other whys it seems it may be an okay game but i did think ac3 wasnt that good.
pirate games are my favorite types of video games but there is such a huge lack of them. AC did amazing on 3 and with all their games the have proven that you can make a great game in just a year unlike COD. I hope they keep on their streak of making great games with this one since brotherhood and 2 werent that good to me but revelations and 3 were awesome so hopefully they make this one awesome and have a great pirate experience.
AC is a great game but no i'm really confused like with all the Kenways it's to hard to keep track and really I hope they do good on the PS4-PS3

Review 20 for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
Location: Lowell, MA
This is really risky for Ubisoft. I think that the naval combat in ACIII was okay... but not amazing. It's hard to tell if a game centered around this, shall I say, mediocre theme will sell well. Also, am I the only person who is completely bored by desmond? I mean, in ACII I'll be upgrading the Villa, or buying the new armor when suddenly, "Good job Desmond. Now do a 20 minute completely pointless and boring mission in modern times." REALLY? Why did they need the Animus? Just have it set in the times of the Animus! It would be a lot cooler with these intermissions gone. Just saying. I don't know if anyone else agrees.
