Assassin Creed

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.

Assassin's Creed III

While gamers were busy uncovering the Borgia conspiracy and seeking out Altair’s memories in Constantinople, a different team had been charged with crafting an entirely new Assassin’s Creed adventure just after the release of the second game. In many ways, Assassin’s Creed III feels as if it were made independently thanks to a welcome graphical facelift and new gameplay enhancements.
