Assassin's Creed Pirates has the old-school swagger of a game that doesn't really care about reality.
It might occasionally drizzle some historical facts around its swashbuckling subject matter, but the core of the game is so chock full of nonsense that you'll barely even notice.
It's far too busy letting you dodge cannonballs and sail around on the breath of an infinite and ever-following wind, while the wooden wreckage of another destroyed ship instantly disappears to the bottom of the shiny sea.
It is, in short, a stupid game. But it's stupid in most of the right ways, and its flagrant disregard for anything resembling common sense makes for an experience that, while repetitive and basically meaningless, will keep you entertained.
A big silly game full of repetitive combat and simple missions, Assassin's Creed Pirates somehow still manages to be fun
