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.

The result is a net positive that won’t torture your wallet, regardless of how it started, but I would have preferred the ability to travel where I want, when I want, and let the game’s difficulty curve naturally inform me where I was and wasn’t meant to be. Assassin’s Creed: Pirates is still a steal at the current $5. There’s a massive sense of reward in eking out every resource and collectible from a given region before turning to raze the next, and there’s plenty of opportunity to do it. An unfortunate lack of freedom just makes that return on your time a diminishing one.

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.
IGN (Dec 12, 2013)
The nautical elements of AC III and Black Flag are arguably the strongest facets of those games, and those themes are rife for exploration in a standalone title. While Assassin's Creed Pirates manages to capture a bit of that sea-faring magic, it never quite delivers the pirate experience I wanted. Unless you're willing to grind through an endless wave of banal ship battles, you're better off sticking to its bigger, better, and much less frustrating console and PC brethren.
