The stellar spin-off to Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag has made its debut as a standalone title.
Freedom Cry easily rectifies one of the biggest fallacies of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag at the cost of one of sacrificing one of its most redeemable qualities. This trade-off results in moving overall video game storytelling tremendously forward, but painstakingly hindering the core advancements that were made with Black Flag. Just like Edward Kenway's swashbuckling adventure in AC4, this downloadable content exhibits many of the front line flaws that have plagued the Assassin's Creed series to this very day. Luckily, excellent, powerful storytelling will encourage you to overlook these shortcomings for the sake of unfolding such an amazing tale.
