    Perfects everything Origins did and enhances them in ways you never thought an Assassin's Creed game could. Odyssey has it all.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey becomes one of the best chapters of the saga to date. Its history involves from beginning to end and the recreation of Ancient Greece is simply sublime. Its mechanics are the result of everything learned in previous chapters and achieve an immersive gameplay. If you are a fan of the saga and you like RPG games, Assassin´s Creed Odyssey is an essential on your bookshelf.

    If not the best, one of the greatest games in the franchise: interesting RPG mechanics, new exploration mode, well written and with a wonderful main character. However, AI and stealth must be improved in the future.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is big and beautiful. Could it be a much better game? Sure. But it's an amazing adventure with echoes of the Greek classic tales about travels and fantasy.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is one of the best chapters of the series, and will delight any fan. Too bad for a limping technical optimization, which spoils the performance of what could have been the best Assassin's Creed ever made.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey features a rich, lush world lessened by its repetitive activities. Though the main story is compelling, completing it requires you to participate in a massive amount of level grinding through less-than-stellar side quests. There’s plenty to do in this world, but a lot of it feels like busy work that fights to stay exciting or compelling. Odyssey is yet another open world game that misinterprets the meaning of more content.

    Played around 15 hours so far .
    As soon as you start off your story you will know this is a game not for the faint hearted ,the scale of this game becomes apparent within the 1st few hours .
    Yes it’s now pretty much an RPG ,does that really matter ?to some it seems to .
    For me this is the perfect game to get stuck into for the next couple of weeks ,probably months .
    If you like orgins you will love this ,stunning map(62% bigger than origins ) from land to ship battles ,great combat ,more advanced than origins .if you like RPGS and open world games then this is perfect for you.easy 9.5 out of 10 from me

    I haven't played the Assassins Creed series since Syndicate, and before that it was Brotherhood. So I've missed a few key entries.

    The easiest way to describe it is the lovechild of Witcher 3 and Shadow of War, skinned in Ancient Greece. Nothing more nothing less.

    The Witcher 3 Parts.
    The movement, boats, horses, and even the World map and its icons looks and feels a lot like Witcher 3. which sadly Witcher 3 did successfully back in 2015. The only thing that Odyssey did better on that was having one BIG world map instead of separate loading zones and 2018 visuals to suit.

    The Shadow of War Parts.
    It has basically cloned the nemesis system from Shadow of War, without the actual nemesis. You have the strongholds, captains, recruits etc. Some of the character abilities, the teleport spear for example shows even more why its a clone.

    The Good
    it has chosen 2 very great games (especially Witcher) to clone, making it a perfect marriage of them. If you like them , you like this. Simple.

    The Neutral
    Don't expect an Assassins Creed game....The Stealth gameplay is watered down to favour the greater combat approach. Some may like this, may not, it adds more depth to the game overall. But don't expect to have that classic Stealth experience.

    its an RPG. something I personally liked, having more customisation and loot. But it feels shallow at times. Not as in depth as typical RPG'S on the loot front. I feel in the effort to become a fully fledged RPG and balanced the games, Ranged, Stealth and Combat play styles its become a sort of "Jack of all trades, master of none" game.

    The Bad
    its lost its uniqueness and originality of being an Assassins Creed game, It should of been it's own standalone Ubisoft IP.

    Overall 7/10
    As a video game its great, lots to see and do, and very pretty albeit a bit buggy in places (which could just be launch issues that will be fixed). But sadly it lacks what it was meant to be an assassins creed game.

    Before I make my review I want to make clear that I am an Assassins Creed hardcore fan. I own all the books, statues, games etc. I loveBefore I make my review I want to make clear that I am an Assassins Creed hardcore fan. I own all the books, statues, games etc. I love Assassins Creed it is my favorite series of all time. Now to the review.
    This game is not Assassins Creed, not in the terms we have come to expect. It instead seems to focus on a piece of Eden "very powerful weapon/tool" in the Assassins Creed universe, but makes no mention of Assassins or Templars. The series seems to be stepping more and more away from the genre that made it successful and into a full on RPG, which is fine. Except in order to make an RPG successful you need a great leveling system and an amazing story. Only problem is that every quest in the game is the same. Go to X and kill Y soldiers or go to Y and get X loot. It is repetitive to the extreme. The story is small and seems distant to all the repetitive quests. This game goes back to what made Black Flag so successful and that is the open seas and sea battles. That again seems distant and forced as it seems 90% of quests and story is on the main land.
    Do not get me started on the micro transactions. I spent $140 on the ultimate edition but am still trying to figure out what that bought me aside from the base game and some gear that is level 1 and is to expensive to upgrade unless you use real money to buy crafting materials. I have spent an additional $70 on maps, and boosters. Things that should have come with that $140 ultimate edition. Yes boosters are required in this game unless you want to spend hours getting one level past 25. Some people might say but leveling is part of an RPG. True it is... but not like this.

    This game is just Origins with a new coat of paint, but terrible story.

    This is the worst Assassins Creed game I have ever played and it hurts me to say that about my beloved series. The only reason it gets a 5 is because of the name Assassins Creed.

Grind is unbearable and you can see right away that it's done on purpose to force you to buy digital money for exp boosters and such. I couldn't believe my eyes... i want my money back for the first time with AC game. Game looks pretty but that's about all positives i can think of. Expand
