According to SVG’s survey, 21.36% of Assassin’s Creed fans want Black Flag gone from Ubisoft’s biggest IP.
That result is completely unexpected, especially considering the positive Metacritic score that game pulled in. It sits at an 83 Metascore and its User Score comes in at a 7.9. Still, fans aren’t completely sold on it. There is a Reddit thread that calls out the game for being a good pirate experience, but a less-than-stellar Assassin’s Creed game. An article posted by Ketul Majmudar via Medium lamented Black Flag’s lack of character motivation and weak in-game relationships with allies.
As for the other Assassin’s Creed titles that appeared on SVG’s survey, Assassin’s Creed Unity came in at second place with 19.26% of the vote. Seeing as how broken and glitchy that game was at launch, it’s easy to see why fans want that series entry completely deleted.
Origins ended up earning 17.31%, while Odyssey brought in 14.40%. The recently released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla surprisingly made the list with 13.92% of the total vote. The “Other” category (13.75%) mentioned Assassin’s Creed 3, which hasn’t been too warmly received by most fans.
