This was a great game. Anyone with even a passing interest in the series should jump on this.

Free?? Wow I should have waited another couple of years. It is a great game as JH posts. I am currently playing its sequel, Rogue, set in colonial New York, with the same naval combat model as Black Flag. Great fun.

Got it! Thanks for the heads-up, Steve. O0

Thanks to JH and Gus for the recommendations, too.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

  Our hero (okay, my Alter-ego, my Animus?): a) swims with his boots on (and would one wear boots on a ship?  Seems unlikely) and then is
b) horribly threatened by a flintlock pistol that has been immersed in sea water
c) I'd be more worried about his pistoleer who can swim with a pistol and uniform...the man must be extremely...something (suitable only for cut-scenes?)

  Bouyant!  Yes!  Now that I've found you can skip the cut-scenes, I'm having a fine time leaping around the jungle.

  The three droopy blobs under the row of blobs could be parts of the glyphs for "Chocolate" or "He was imprisoned"
