First Review of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Surfaces

By   /   3 years ago

Well, it’s just eight days to go in the release date for this hugely anticipated title and people just cant wait any more. A French magazine named Jeux Video has published what is reportedly the first formal review of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for both consoles of Sony i.e. PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 – nothing on Xbox versions yet.

A post on NeoGAF revealed the contents of the review online and what comes out is certainly interesting. They have given the game an overall 18 out of 20. Breaking this down into categories, gameplay and graphics were awarded 4 out of 5 each while soundtrack and length of the game were given 5 on 5 each.

Yes I know you want to know more, read on. Among the prized possessions of the game, three things were praised: the world/map, the options in things you have to keep you busy and the stealth element.

On the downside, the magazine cited three negative impressions being the technical problems that they faced in the game, a loss of frame rate when the game is played on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 both and aliasing when playing on PlayStation 4. Other than this you could be brooding about lack of weapons, new enemy types and slower combat.

Don’t let these things get you down because one, they can be fixed and second, there has been a lot of praise. According to the reviewers “this is a true AC game and the most accomplished of the franchise,” the cities are much better than they used to be in Assassin’s Creed 3 and the naval combat sequences are amazing.

If you are one of those who dig lengthy games, this one is going to take 20 hours to complete the main story and at least 50 to go over everything else there is in the game.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is bound to release on Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 29 and to PC on November 19 while it will be released as a launch title for both the next generation consoles.
