    An excellent and beautiful game from ancient Greece. Maybe it’s very different from the first game, however this evolution benefits the brand. [Issue#290]

    So as the story unfolds, along with your map and you get into this gathering, parkouring and hunting rhythm here comes the main reason that has me rate Odyssey right up there with Origins. Next to Kassandra herself and animal taming, it’s the Naval component that really makes this Assassins Creed epic.

    Despite my few complaints, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey truly is an incredibly entertaining game that proves Origins was no fluke. I’m back on the hype train, baby, and I can’t wait to see where the next stop is (even if I wish it’d rest at the same station for another year or two). No longer a simple stealth game, but instead a massive, detailed, sprawling roleplaying game, Odyssey just might be one of my favorite games of 2018 so far.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey delivers a visually stunning experience on PC, thanks to 4K resolution and maxed out effects. The game is huge, with plenty of missions and characters for you to discover, a solid combat system, the return of naval battles and a compelling narrative.

    Undoubtedly, AC: Odyssey as a game has quite a few issues: bad AI, the strangulation of the player with hundreds of missions and missed opportunities on the RPG level. But it does something also very important: it includes a huge and impressive world, capturing successfully the Ancient Greece aesthetic and it manages to be truly entertaining and unimaginably addictive.

    As expected, Odyssey is basically Origins 2.0, bigger and better in almost every regard, from leveling options to wide open world with procedurally-generated mercenaries to keep you entertained for hours and hours. [Issue #233, p.54]

    While AC: Origins was packed with interesting stories, Odyssey is a generic ’Ubisoft sandbox’ in the worst sense, with hundreds of the same-looking places, dozens of ”kill-fetch” quests and almost zero motivation to grind further.

The sound ambiance is a big upgrade over AC:Origins, as well. I do think the voice acting is better than in Origins as well. The eye movements look great, but can be wonky sometimes, all in all it is good step forward in the AC series.

What you're getting here is a huge beautiful game world to explore on both land and sea set in the best setting: Ancient Greece. And you get to play exactly the way you want. Choice is the biggest addition here, allowing you choose dialogue options and make decisions that affect the story, choose your own playstyle; combat or stealth, you even get to choose to play as Alexios or Kassandra who have totally different personalities. I'm glad This franchise went full RPG because though it may be as good as the witcher, it comes pretty damn close.

    One of the games of the year. 10/10.

The map size is quite big, bigger then Origins in fact. The story is surely an interesting part, but it's the side quest with a ! that are fun to do. They mix humor, philosophy, ethics and politics into the mix. All the bounties, contracts are very dull. I did them at first but stopped halfway. I also stopped all the taking sides of an army, because it has no real impact on the story. The fighting is the same, got better with the arc. The naval fight are still fun. The water effects, the quality of the textures on high is great. The draw distance isn't always well adjusted and some lighting's takes too much time to render. The sounds are fine especially when the sea is near or involved. The animation can be robotic at times but in general it's not too distracting. The music wasn't as strong then Origin. I did love the boat singing, especially with a female crew. I recommend you play this game on EASY. You need to be one or two levels over your enemies to enjoy this. Even then, it will take around 65 to 80 hours to finish the main quest with most of the side ! quests. There is another ending after the first one. There was less modern content and that was a deception in the end. I give the game a 77%. A big RPG with too much useless stuff but there is some things related to the birth of democracy, philosophy, medicine in the Greek-Spartan worlds. Expand

    Origins re-skin, so the typical ubisoft burnout doesnt come after the first 10 hours, but maybe 3 or 4, save your money.
