    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's open-world adventure through ancient Greece is a gorgeous thrill, and the best the series has ever been.

    If you have the time and patience, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is worth a look, if not for the meandering plot and lore, than for the history porn, the earnest humor, and the massive, mystery-filled world.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey comes close to be the best title of the series to date, with a much-improved narrative design, an interesting main storyline and an overhauled gameplay inherited from last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.

    Odyssey puts player freedom front and centre in a way the games never have before, while also taking in perhaps the most fun and gorgeous location we've seen so far.

    Assassin's Creed: Odyssey builds on everything good Origins introduced, but with a bit lower quality stories and adding some new systems that end up being not so impressive. Overall, though, it's still a very solid open world game with lots of content and some very gorgeous visuals. It won't amaze you as Origins did, but it'll still provide tens of hours of quality play.

    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.

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.

Origins was a huge improvement in gameplay mechanics but Odyssey's inclusion of dialogue options and choice of gender makes it feel like a true RPG. If they continue down this path, every AC game will be a must play for me. Expand

    I have not yet beat this game - However I do recommend it.
    At first i was hesitant to buy the game as I thought "Oh, it's just a reskin of Origins" however I was wrong, the game is much more improved on Origins features and the gameplay feels more alive.

    I like how you have the choice between 2 characters & to be guided or to explore and discover the world around you. The weapons are, for me at least, hard to work with as I have to keep going back and forth between weaponry to deal the most amount of damage.

    The game can be hard at times, even on easy, just because you have got some weapons and the way that the WARRIOR, ASSASSIN & HUNTER damage is managed is not properly explained. Just because a piece of armour protects you better does not mean it is the best for your character.
    The armour does not match some times and you have a sword that may do 80 damage and one that does 75 damage, but the 75 damage is the one that is better. Some of it makes less sense but the gameplay is good once that issue is looked past.

    Overall I'd say the game is worth paying for, even if you didn't really like Origins which I didn't. The setting is also abit more lively than AC:Origins.

    Openworld is gorgeous and massive but why the hell would they put in that big of a map? 7/10. Origin's Map was better
    Combat animations look kind of polished this time around . Plus there are tons of weapons at your disposal. 8/10
    Sidequests are pretty similar to each other and the openworld is filled with these . Some of them actually tied into the main story , so thats a good thing. 6.5/10
    The micro transactions this time around are complete and utter horse raddish . Lemme tell you one thing , this game is grindy as hell! You actually come to a point , where you buy the stuff with real money just because you hate the grind.
    Overall game :5.5/10 .
    I gave origins a 6/10 but the mtx ruined this one for me
    But overall i think this is a better game than origins .
    At the same time its a worse "ASSASSIN"S CREED GAME" than origins
