The year is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established their own lawless Republic. Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag introduces Edward Kenway, a brash rebel Pirate Assassin. His fight for glory has earned him the respect of legends like Blackbeard, but also drawn him into the ancient war between Assassins and Templars, a war that may destroy everything the pirates have built. Take part in an incredible and seamless adventure.
Great port of a great game!
Pros: Ubi finally got it right with a WiiU open world game. This game really shines on the WiiU with better textures, lighting, effects, and framerate than the ps360 verisons. OffTV play is gorgeous and 2 screen play is nice with a zoomable map and ability to move the HUD off the main screen. The game does a 1.1GB Update on first run that most likely is a core engine install becaues this game boots fast, has quick load times and suffer from no cut scene jitters like so many other WiiU ports. UPlay, Companion App and Online are all supported and working and there is a small but active group of people playing the online. If you only buy one 3rd party WiiU game this holiday make it AC4...much better conept and story than AC3.
Cons: The 1.1GB 'update' you must do on first run may take a while for those of you with 'slow' internet...still it is a must install and I would install/copy it to the internal storag for best results..
Other Thoughts: Please by this game people....WiiU needs Ubi and if Ghosts turns out good by it as well. WiiU is getting some good titles and ports now with Splinter Cell, Rayman, and AC4 all being good work from Ubi and Batman and Injustice being good from Warner, Deus EX best version from Squeenix and a great version of Skylanders and hopefully Ghosts from Activision.....please buy some 3rd party this holiday so we can keep these games coming to WiiU as we know we will have great stuff from Nintendo in the coming years as well.
