The Story of Me and Assassin’s Creed Black Flag

Assassin’s Creed Assassin’s Creed is an open-world, action-adventure, and stealth video game. (Assassin’s Creed). Assassin’s Creed is based on the histories including Ancient Egyptian history, Greek history, Caribbean stories and Renaissance history. Players often take on the role of an in-game character, an Assassin or Templar to deal with the conflict between each other. The player moves through a series of activities within the context of the game to bring the history or world into balance. Assassins’ creed is freedom balance. Templars who represent order are gaining control of Pieces of Eden, which can control people to follow their order. The game attracts me in many ways, which are great graphics, great gameplay and an empathetic story. I have played Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag in depth before and I am going to use Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag to illustrate the three qualities it has that interest me the most. All images are sourced from within the game and not from the website.

When I downloaded Assassin’s Creed Black Flag for the first time, I was immediately attracted by the excellent graphics and scene design in the game. “The game’s setting spans the West Indies with the three main cities of Havana, Nassau, and Kingston, along with numerous islands, sunken ships, and forts.” (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag). When designing the game map, the designer will restore a scene that looks real and has many details based on the historical stories and local exploration at that time. For example, When I sailed my ship to Nassau in North America in the game, I saw rainforests and towns that fit the local character in the game. I was very surprised and happy with what I saw in the game.

The first scene in the game

The rainforest fulling of green contains a great deal of detail including biodiversity such as hare, deer and leopards are running in a scene of dense jungle including streams, bushes and woods. These scenes feel very real and novel to a person who has not been to this place.

Not only on land but also below the sea, where we see common corals, jellyfish, water plants and large predators, great white sharks or large whales. These creatures are well represented by the game’s graphics.

Another type of great graph detail is object type detail. When I sail around the Caribbean in the game as a pirate, I can see exactly how many guns I have on my ship and how many sailors I have and what is happening on the deck of the ship and what’s going on with my ship when I’m fighting.

For example, when I run away with my boat, I can clearly see that my shell has hit the opposite ship and the opposite ship has received feedback on the impact such as hull damage. When my character is fighting with someone, the effects of the knife hitting the person and the effects of the other person being attacked are also very real such as blood spray, and realistic knife. These images made me more committed to playing the game and proving the game since the graphics are so well-executed. 

Edward’s assassination from the air

For great gameplay, Assassin’s Creed has a variety of ways to play such as adventure of sailing on the sea, browsing the in-game landscape, and performing missions as an assassin. The adventure of sailing on the sea and seeing the scenery has a lot to do with the graphics of the game and in my opinion performing the mission as an assassin is the most interesting part of the real game. In the game, as an assassin, I need to inquire the enemy’s intelligence, use the assassin’s flexible movements to approach and chase the target enemy, and finally kill the target in the right way at the crucial time. I need to focus on making sure that my assassin doesn’t miss the target, doesn’t get detected by the target and that I don’t die in the process. For instance, during the tracking process, I need to make good use of cover to hide from the enemy such as grass, straw, corners or roofs. During the battle I have the option to kill from the air or kill in the crowd or fight head-to-head with knives, pistols and smoke bombs and things like that. In the intense and exciting environment of the game, it’s easy to pull myself into the game and imagine that I’m the assassin performing a series of missions. Thus, I cannot stop playing this game if I don’t have something important to do.

Edward’s successful assassination of the Templar

The most emotional thing about this game is the storyline. The pirate Edward, the player, initially leaves his wife and hometown for money, during which time he meets other pirates like himself, for example Blackbeard, Benjamin Hornigold, Mary Read (under the alias «James Kidd») and Charles Vane. Their dream is establishing a pirate utopia where man is free to live beyond the reach of rulers. 

Edward’s pirate friends

Edward, in his quest for money, harms the Assassins and offends the Templars for his own gain regardless of the interests of others. At first Edward thought nothing of it. When the Templars took revenge on him Edward lost his fortune, his friendship and even his faith as a pirate. When Edward learns of the Templars’ plot to take over the world and Mary Read’s dying wish for him to make up for his mistakes, Edward decides to join the assassins and fight for freedom. 

Edward’s last meeting with the legendary pirate Blackbeard

In the end, Edward resolves the conflict between the assassins and the Templars and returns to his homeland to form a new brotherhood of Assassins fighting for freedom. Black Flag represents freedom for pirates. The story revolves around black flags and freedom and tells the story of Edward’s ups and downs and legendary life. The story not only gives you a sense of the friendship between Edward and the pirates but also gives you a sense of Edward’s feelings of betrayal and finally witnesses the process of Edward’s ideological sublimation. Therefore, the story of the Black Flag makes sense and Edward’s experience and Edward’s emotions make sense.

When I am playing Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, I am noticing a lot of realistic graphics and a strong sense of character engagement. This game is recommended for game lovers. But for young children or people with mental illness, I don’t recommend this game because children may become addicted and mentally ill people may be confused between reality and the game world when they see the real picture in the game and may do something abnormal or affect the treatment of their mental illness.

In conclusion, I have played Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and I think it’s a great game because of its excellent game graphics, exciting assassin gameplay and an excellent storyline. “Nothing is true, everything is permitted” is Assassin’s Creed. If nothing is real, why believe? If everything is allowed, why not pursue all desires? Therefore, the world is balanced but not balanced. Assassins can fight for freedom or their convictions, and we should have our own creed to guide us and have the courage to reflect on our mistakes.
