My review of Freedom Cry (standalone PS4) is up.
“Tying gameplay in with historical events is what the Assassin’s Creed franchise has always been good at. Religion, philosophy, sociology, and power are staples to the series. Slavery, on the other hand, is not a typical subject matter seen in video games. Liberation included such themes as a foundation of setting and social interaction; however, in the original DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and now as a standalone digital download game, Freedom Cry examines slavery as the main thrust of setting, society and gameplay.”
