    If you love the Assassin’s Creed games then this is one of the best, even though it’s not a million miles away from the stunning Origins.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey follows the natural evolution of the new trilogy by polishing some of its playable mechanics and providing a powerful narrative with one of the best plots in the series. The new combat system with the multiple use of skills and the new character progression where every decision counts, embraces the path of the role games and gives it its own identity in a world as massive as it is dynamic.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey successfully builds upon the already strong foundation that Origins set to provide yet another Assassin’s Creed experience that still feels fresh and, more importantly, fun to explore and dive into. Even better, it does all this without the typical bloat you’d expect, although Conquest Battles do feel like a missed opportunity. Despite this minor letdown, Odyssey eclipses Origins in practically every way, and is easily the best Assassin’s Creed yet.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is an ambitious game that takes a huge leap in the right direction for the series by building on the solid foundations laid by last year's Origins. The world is stunning, the combat feels better than it has in any other game in the series, and the inclusion of choices both big and small impacts the world and creates a much deeper narrative experience. There are still some rough spots then need addressing in future titles, and some of the new additions don't work as well as they should, but Odyssey sets a new bar for what an Assassin's Creed game can be.

    This is the kind of game where you could wipe out days of time paying attention to one piece of the greater story, with the true joy coming when you get to take a step back and see the story you've built.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey lives up to its namesake. By fully investing in becoming an action RPG, Odyssey’s characters, combat, story, and scope are beyond anything the series has accomplished so far. Its ambitions might get the better of it sometimes, like in how it divides its story moments or in how the leveling system can get out of hand, but the overall experience is, simply put, epic. Even when the game’s pacing hits a speed bump, there are plenty of engaging and rewarding side quests and distractions to keep you busy.

    Odyssey makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world, and it's a joy to venture out and leave your mark on its ever-changing setting.

    Ubisoft did a really great job.

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.

You can call this Witcher 3-lite as theI don't know if I've ever played a game so desperate not to be apart of the series it's named after. You can call this Witcher 3-lite as the inspiration from that game is almost unapologetic-ally the same game but set in the greek world. The story starts out great but peters of toward the end, including the extremely odd decision to make a massively important part to the main, overall story, a bloody side quest half way through the game. It makes absolutely no sense at all to me, especially for a series that desperately needs to find a way to bring the modern day elements that the series has been known for, and is the main plot point that is similar amongst all of the games, to a better spot. There are a ton of good things to go with this game, especially for anyone who played Witcher 3. Mostly because the good things from that game translate over here. The world is absolutely huge and there's tons to do with the Cultists side quest to the Mercenaries stuff here. And I enjoyed the combat system, which has improved upon the Origins massive changes to the series. It's a shame that all of the best stuff at the end of the game requires massive grinding because the main story won't get you to the point where you need to be at for, arguably, the more important things that come after the lackluster ending to that. AC really has developed an identity crisis with these last two games. Especially with this one as there's almost nothing here that relates back to the previous games. With the announcement that there won't be a game in '19 and the next installment will come in 2020, Ubisoft has alot of decisions to make regarding the future of the series. If they continue going down the route they have been with the previous installments, they need to make decisions on how to continue with the series, especially with the modern day elements of the series and whether to even keep them in the game. I'd say that it's time to get rid of it and focus entirely on each games individual setting and how that fits into the overall world. I don't know if I'd recommend this to series veterans looking for a return to form after the big change that Origins was. This game is almost geared more for the series newcomers who don't know much about the long history of the games. Expand

There are timesIt has it's moments, it's a beautiful looking game, and it improves upon what Origins began, but it is a HARD grind at times. There are times where the game will stop being fun and just feel like work. The story is interesting, but the Ubisoft has long since foregone weaving engaging narratives. All in all, it's not a bad game, but like Black Flag, it's not an Assassin's Creed game, and it's RPG elements and grindy gameplay may turn many off. Expand

    First of all the things I like about the game where the graphics, new dialogue options, the stealth was good and the Greece setting butFirst of all the things I like about the game where the graphics, new dialogue options, the stealth was good and the Greece setting but unfortunately everything else about the game I hated, going from Origins to Odyssey felt like a huge downgrade in terms of combat, progression, the way the abilities worked, how the the map was and the new bounties was annoying. The game was also too grindy for me compared to Origins, I felt like the game was forcing me to be in combat which I dreaded being in combat. I actually couldn't bring myself to finish it, it was that painful for me to play. Overall I was really disappointed in the game. Expand
