The Best Xbox One Games... So Far
Assassin's Creed 4: Black FlagAssassin's Creed 3 made some fans swear off the series for good. I suspect Assassin's Creed 4 won at least some of them back, though.
AC4 brings the series to its most vibrant setting yet, letting players run amuck as a pirate in the Caribbean. They can explore jungles, tussle with guards in cities or maraud shipping lanes on the high seas. What's just as impressive is how the game allows you to seamlessly move between these different types of gameplay.
The game's attitude is embodied by Captain Edward Kenway. He's not as stoic as AC3's Connor. He's a pirate who loves drinking and raising hell. Like the game he inhabits, Edward's all about having a fun time.
Assassin's Creed 4 might not be the best game in the series (that's Assassin's Creed 2 in my opinion) but it's great enough to show long-time fans that the franchise still has some life left in his bones.
