    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.

    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.

    The latest addition to the Assassin's Creed franchise is truly a wonder and a fresh take on a stale idea. The excellent execution, gameplay and story is only overshadowed by greedy micro transactions, paid XP and awful optimization.

    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.

    An absolute blast from start to finish!

    A huge, gorgeous, open world filled with tons of interesting quests and side-quests - I'm frankly shocked at how large the world is and how they managed to fill it with interesting content. The combat is fun and challenging, and the optional stealth approach is even more fun and rewarding - you can mix and match them as you see fit. The choice of player character and dialog options pull you into the game and make it feel like you're creating your own personal story. It took me 110 hours to beat the game, and I want to go back in to explore the islands I didn't get to and finish the side-quests there.

    The game is incredibly polished - in 110 hours I only encountered two minor bugs. The PC port is great, giving you a myriad of options to customize the game and controls, with visual previews of all the graphics options and a built-in benchmark. The game also instantly switches between mouse and keyboard and controller. My i5 6600 + 1080 Ti PC ran the game at 6040x1080 (1080p x 3) at 45-60 fps, but there's also the option for a locked framerate from 30-60 in increments of 5.

    The complaints of "grind" and "level-gated content" apply only to those who wish to rush through the main story while skipping all the side-quests and optional content. If you actually engage with the game, it is incredibly generous with XP. Just from doing the primary side-quests (which were always interesting and entertaining) and skipping most of the other optional stuff, I was gaining levels so quickly that I changed the level scaling to always match mine so that I wouldn't out-level all the content.

Loved Kassandra and the quirky and funny stories she got involved with. Greatly enjoyed the assassin abilities and skills and loved, loved loved all the lovely weapon and armour designs. Such a beautifully crafted game and such a treat for the eyes especially for someone living in gloomy and rainy old Ireland. Locations are really stunning, it was a joy to quest and explore this beautiful game world. Thank you Ubisfot for bringing in some romances. I thought they were lovely and I greatly enjoyed trying out all the flirt options. My Kassandra was a bit of a 'romeo' (wink wink nudge nudge :D)
    I really cant fault this game and I played all the dlc as well. Worth every penny to my mind. I can't wait for the next one now as if this is the direction AC games are going I'm a convert.

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.

    Where is assassin's in the game with the title Assassin's Creed?
    Tons of repetitive activities known as grind (side quests/question marks/towers).
    Poor main quests, again, without any relation to assassin's brotherhood.
    Plot and lore devastated by unexplained "magic" abilities.
    Bad optimization on PC on release < 30 fps on gtx1070.
    Don't buy this crap if you expect to see the next chapter in the assassins vs templars storyline.
