    Despite its issues, both technical and philosophical, I'm giving Freedom Cry a “must play” rating. I think it's an important start in tackling such a difficult and tragic topic via the medium of interactive entertainment.

    All in all, Freedom Cry is an excellent addition to Assassin’s Creed IV.

    Adéwalé has his moments, but the real draw here is in the expansion of free-form gameplay both on land and at sea, meaning Freedom Cry succeeds at what it set out to do.

    Freedom Cry is simply a great addition to an excellent game, offering a story worth experiencing across a setting worth exploring.

    Freedom Cry is a good DLC and lets you play as Adewalé, which is an interesting character. Sadly, all of your progress in this DLC is useless for the main game and its huge open wold.

    In the end, the DLC is $9.99, or double that for a season pass. While the story is compelling, it’s also fairly light on a meaningful denouement.

The game "Black Flag" was an amazing play but "Freedom Cry" was total crap with little to do with any accurate history of slavery. Fact is that owning a slave was just like owning a car and when you are not happy with a car you would trade it....not harm it! I did not enjoy this because it was not a real story but more of a "Free slaves from the evil white men" type of play, with not one bit of truth to it. To me it seems to feed the hate of races and did nothing to help inform anyone. Full Review »

The soundtrack is really nice, however. Yes, Freedom Cry is a decent piece of DLC, but it offers nothing to the AC canon besides providing an insight into Adewale's story. Just don't expect anything mindblowing in the end. Full Review »
