    Assassin’s Creed Pirates isn’t some cash in on Assassin’s Creed 4, it is a damn good game that stands right up on its own. It is epic, engaging, and most of all fun. It doesn’t wear out its welcome with bloated mechanics or unnecessary plot. It distills the essence of what we loved about the naval battles and puts it at your fingertips.

    Assassin's Creed: Pirates is a very silly game, but it's a great distraction if you're left wanting more after Black Flag. With a host of content, tons of customization and fast-paced combat, there's hardly a dull moment in Pirates. The fact that there's no money-grubbing microtransactions to ruin the experience is the cherry on top.

    Pirates is a game of lots of little pieces that combine to form a patchy but largely coherent slice of pirate life. Could it stand to be a little more in-depth, a little less piecemeal in the way it hands out tasks? Certainly. But if you just want a solidly entertaining pirate game that you can dip in and out of, safe in the knowledge that there are hours of gameplay ahead with no paywalls, this is definitely worth downloading.

    With fun exploration and beautiful visuals, Assassin's Creed Pirates skirts close to greatness, but settles for being an enjoyable diversion.

    Sailing around the ocean and discovering treasure is fun, but the ship battles that make up a majority of the experience wear thin quickly. And with a mostly uninteresting story and thin connections to the Assassin's Creed series proper, Assassin's Creed Pirates is just floating dead in the water.

    At least turning the ship's wheel with your finger is a pleasantly tactile experience. [March 2014, p.76]

    Fantastic graphics as showcased in the screenshot. Real breakthrough for a mobile game, a step ahead after Infinity Blade 3. But the gameFantastic graphics as showcased in the screenshot. Real breakthrough for a mobile game, a step ahead after Infinity Blade 3. But the game itself is just great. As a "moderate" AC fan, I found this mobile spin-off clever and tremendous, with a highly entertaining naval combat gameplay. The storyline is very catchy, faithful to the AC semi-realistic tone. In a nutshell, great adventure as few (if any) other mobile games offer. And an wonderful open-world to explore, with easy hop-on, hop off, either to follow the main story or launch any side mission.
    Only hope is that Ubisoft will keep this game growing with updates and additions. It deserves it.
