Those who have followed the history of the first Assassin’s Creed are aware of the great changes that recently occurred in the series: in the fourth and final part , the bank shifted from universal conspiracy and everyday life of the Assassins , a pirate romance. Seriously – almost 70 % of the game devoted to boarding , drinking in the open sea and the team song . Changing course everyone liked , and classical mechanics Assassin’s Creed, it seems, finally went to the junk.
What do we tell it all . The game Assassin’s Creed Pirates, the review of which you are now reading , as well as the first two words in the title – to , in fact , Assassin’s Creed have very indirect relationship. But the rest – this is the fourth part of which excluded the possibility to get out on the land . Net , that is , concentrated pirate romance, undiluted and gram heavy heritage series.
Do you ship . This ( first) small brig , equipped with several guns . Boat drifting in the middle of the sea , our team under the guidance of captain he manages . Is simple enough : a view of either of the steering wheel ( very impressive ), or on the mast . Gas brake , that is , sorry, sail or roll them – matter of a button and a couple of seconds , like curtains . Steer – the same round thing behind which are all captains – convenient, it holographically taken out to the main screen . In general, the feeling of control huge ship – not much different from driving a car somewhere in the GTA. And it’s great – 99 % of the time you spend at the helm , if it gave torment , nothing would have saved the game .
Game , however, and do not save – it so well . In Assassin’s Creed Pirates have a huge open world – specifically the ocean. You are free to surf the aquatic universe. Enjoy a peaceful life , based on research, opening new observation points and fisheries ? Yes, no one bothers to – hang ” Jolly Roger ” on the nail and drive high moral way of living . Thousand of opportunities to spend time boring , and , a gift that can not be planted on the land , from the monotony of Assassin’s Creed Pirates gracefully saved .
But let us not dissemble – pirate life in the game is the most interesting , the name did not just . Clashes with the royal frigates , the hunt for trade galleons , constant voltage , which must have lived real pirates – it is clear that if not today , then tomorrow will be under white hands , but until then have time to live to the fullest. Stoke alien ships , assemble a team , assign resources – the ship then improve – priceless adventure strong pirate.
Do battle , by the way , are pretty simple – and this is the only ( well, except for the plot of land and parts) general unlike Assassin’s Creed Pirates of the fourth part. In the “big” version all very impressive, spectacular and beautiful: the nucleus fly tower dives to a depth boarded. Here – in the style of some primitive arcade : you come in a duel , and in turn give volley. When it does you – just aim the gun at the enemy , when the enemy – just click evasion : a kind of aqueous Infinity Blade. It’s very simple , and what could be , a bit silly – on the other hand , not the fact that mobile devices and , especially , their specific management would draw full naval battles .
So we have what we have. And there – very, very much. Vast ocean , complete freedom of action , a great opportunity to upgrade the ship , great setting , and – most importantly – this indescribable atmosphere filibustering times. Get your copy of Assasin’sCreed Pirates here
