If you have any audio issues with the Freedom Cry dialogue, you can try using the Freedom Cry Dialogue Audio Fix by Vinne that can be downloaded from Nexus Mods. It will replace the corrupted audio file with a working one.

What You Can Expect
Freedom Cry is a standalone DLC that does not require the base game to play. It offers about five hours of gameplay, depending on how much you explore and do side activities. You will get to experience a new location, Port-au-Prince, which is full of life and culture, but also oppression and cruelty. You will also get to sail your own ship, the Experto Crede, and engage in naval combat and exploration.
The gameplay of Freedom Cry is similar to that of Black Flag, with some minor tweaks and additions. You can use a blunderbuss, a powerful shotgun-like weapon, to blast your enemies at close range. You can also use firecrackers to distract guards and create diversions. You can free slaves by various means, such as stealthily killing their overseers, sabotaging slave ships, or raiding plantations. You can also recruit maroons, former slaves who have formed their own communities in the wilderness, to join your crew and fight by your side.
What We Liked
We liked the story and the character of Adewale, who is a compelling and sympathetic protagonist. He has a strong sense of justice and compassion, but also struggles with his own identity and past. He is not afraid to challenge the status quo and confront the evils of slavery. He also has a complex relationship with Bastienne, who is a savvy and influential madam with ties to the Templars. Their interactions are well-written and nuanced, and they both have their own agendas and motivations.
We also liked the setting and the atmosphere of Port-au-Prince, which is a vibrant and colorful city that contrasts with the dark and brutal reality of slavery. The city is full of details and activities that make it feel alive and authentic. You can hear different languages spoken by the locals, such as French, Haitian Creole, and African dialects. You can see different cultural expressions, such as music, dance, and art. You can also witness different aspects of slavery, such as auctions, punishments, and rebellions.
What We Didn't Like
We didn't like the repetitive and restrictive nature of some of the missions and side quests. Freedom Cry relies too much on the same old formula of tailing, eavesdropping, assassinating, and escaping that has been overused in the series. Some of the missions are also very linear and scripted, leaving little room for creativity or improvisation. For example, one mission requires you to follow a specific path through a plantation without being detected or killing anyone, which can be frustrating if you prefer a more open-ended approach.
We also didn't like the lack of reward and impact for freeing slaves. While it feels good to save lives and recruit allies, it doesn't seem to make much difference in the grand scheme of things. The number of slaves you free only serves as a currency for unlocking upgrades, which are not very essential or exciting. The slaves you free also don't seem to have much personality or agency; they mostly just thank you and disappear into the crowd. We would have liked to see more consequences and benefits for our actions, such as changing the balance of power in the city or triggering major events. 061ffe29dd
