Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag

Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered Review

I like to think of Rogue as Assassin’s Creed’s first true lore story. Set between Black Flag and the woeful Assassin’s Creed 3, Rogue tells the story of Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin turned Templar who turns against his former allies in a desperate bid to save the world. One of the shortest main storylines in the whole series, Shay’s journey wastes no time engaging in most of the standard AC tropes like tailing/eavesdropping, and gets right to the good stuff, which means pirating and skulking about in a very dramatic coat.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a game I enjoyed immensely. It controls and plays better than Assassin’s Creed III and its hard not to enjoy causing all sorts of mayhem on land and sea. Its not perfect, combat is over simplified, but the pure joy I experienced sinking ships and hunting sharks overshadows the niggling issues I encountered. There's a multiplayer component that is sorely lacking player versus player ship combat. Let's hope that gets patched in sooner rather than later! Lush scenery, great characters, costumes and a wonderfully realized naval element are woven into a beautiful, playable vision of the golden age of piracy.
