As the sea-faring partner in crime to Edward Kenway, Jackdaw quartermaster Adewale often projected a sense of self that made him a ripe candidate for the assassins. Adewale is now ready to forge own path, though Freedom Cry is just a small window into Adewale's solo exploits; we don't bear witness to his initiation into the Brotherhood, and this downloadable content merely teases us with a Templar pursuit in its opening minutes, which quickly goes awry in a storm.
(Note: This review was based off an half day long playthrough of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Freedom Cry in advance of this DLC's release. This early playthrough was conducted at Ubisoft by invitation. This review opportunity was a freelance assignment for Gamespot.com.)
