    The add-on also gives hope for what's possible when blockbuster-driven creators take risks with material. There are missteps in Freedom Cry, more ethical than mechanical, but it hits as often as it misses. That's undeniably an important step forward.

    Barely noticeable differences to Black Flag make Freedom Cry an inessential add-on to Assassin's Creed IV. [April 2014, p.66]

    A self-contained tale about the human catastrophe of slavery is an abrupt turn from the original’s happy-go-lucky plundering style, but the game’s mechanics adapt relatively well.

    For an extra 10 bucks I can't complain too much. Its just simply MORE black flag only your not Kenway and its more focused on slavery than piracy.
    If the story had been more driven like the base game or if it had introduced something that was not in the base game already, I would have rated it higher.

    I played the standalone and for the price you get a decent but short Assassin's Creed adventure. The story and character are a bit more interesting compared to Black Flag and 3. All the original gameplay elements are still there for better or worse. The stealth is still mostly broken and the combat is way too easy. But at the end of the day i still had a good time exploring the environment and following the story. Expand
