Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Look Back Review

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag gets off to a quick start, turning the series’ longstanding Assassin vs. Templar ideals on their head before giving the player their own ship and setting them loose in the open oceans of the Caribbean. Filling the shoes of roguish pirate Edward Kenway (grandfather to ACIII protagonist Connor), players are given free reign to fully explore most of the game’s world and its myriad systems right from the beginning.

Black Flag, like Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption before it, is the rare open world game with a genuine focus. Pulling equal inspiration from Rockstar’s Wild West fantasy and the oceans of Nintendo’s classic The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, nearly every design element, gameplay system, and aesthetic decision unite together to create the most impressive realization of the childhood Pirate fantasy that the medium has ever seen.

A Beginner’s Guide to Assassin’s Creed Part 5: Brave New World

Assassin's Creed III moves Ubisoft's monolithic franchise away from Europe and across the ocean to the New World.The fifth major entry in the series lets players stalk men and animals through the snow, Tarzan their way through trees, and pilot their own ship in intense naval skirmishes. It also lets them fall randomly through the game world, fail missions with seemingly no rhyme or reason, and gain access to a fast travel system by wandering around dank tunnels for hours on end.

Read on to learn more about this clunky, awkward, fascinating, ambitious mess of a game.

A Beginner’s Guide to Assassin’s Creed Part 4: Crossroads of the World

Assassin's Creed: Revelations began its life as a 3DS spin-off called Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy before being whipped into a full-fledged console entry in about 10 months time and, in a lot of ways, it shows. After the dizzying success of AC2, Ubisoft decided to make the Assassin's Creed franchise its very own Call of Duty; a big-budget, AAA event that releases each and every year. If Brotherhood represented the wistful promise of the concept, then Revelations was the slightly disappointing reality of that commitment.

A Beginner’s Guide to Assassin’s Creed Part 1: Origin of the Species

With not one but two big budget, AAA console entries in Ubisoft's monolithic open-world series making landfall this November 11th and six entries already out in the wild, it's perfectly reasonable to feel a little confused. Overwhelmed even. Debuting almost seven years ago, the Assassin's Creed series has gone on to rival Activision's Call of Duty in its popularity, polish, and commitment to releasing games at a pace that all but the most die-hard fans might not be able to keep up with.

Whether you're interested in trying the series out for the first time before the next two games are unleashed or just taking a stroll through the warm trails of nostalgia, this ongoing "Beginner's Guide" is here to help you make sense of each game in the series, where they fit into the series' evolution of gameplay and production methods, and which ones are worth your time.
