    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I bought the season pass and FC didn't make me feel as though I'd wasted my money. It was a fun tack-on to the main storyline but, in the end, I found myself just wanted to slog through it and see what happened. This was due completely to the fact that freeing slaves simply meant I had access to more items.

    I was excited at first because I saw that I could go around freeing slaves and the more I freed, the more stuff I could have access to; bigger machetes, etc. But I also assumed that, in the end, I would be leading the slave revolt of Haiti and that more freed slaves meant a larger group to lead. But that never happened. Freeing slaves, while morally great, was nothing more than a tool for material gain and nothing more. I really think the developers missed the boat on that part of the game.

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 »
