Review: Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag (PS4/Xbox One)


Crew over Creed. The history of the Assassin’s Creed series has been a long one.

Throw in some Michael Beihn for good measure and you’ve got yourself a party. If you’ve played Far […]

That is to say there is no common, uniting element beyond that of you needing to kill your way out of a difficult […]

Following the slightly stale experience that was Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Ubisoft found one of its flagship series on the brink of franchise fatigue. Luckily for fans, Assassin’s Creed 3 innovates more than any entry in the series to date, completely steering clear of all-too-common issues that come with yearly releases in a franchise.
