    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.

    For everyone saying this is poorly optimized which it is for GPUS made in like 2010 but for GPUs like the RX590-Vega54/64- gtx 1080/ti and theFor everyone saying this is poorly optimized which it is for GPUS made in like 2010 but for GPUs like the RX590-Vega54/64- gtx 1080/ti and the RTX series, this game runs smooth as hell at high-ultra high settings at 1080p this game is meant to be played on higher-end GPUs that can support open world games as there is a lot to render mostly within cities in the game other then that its amazing

    And for the story, it is just amazing everything about it feels great, and the RPG feeling to the game is super fresh and clean + the side quests are amazing as well.

    And the gameplay is beyond smooth almost flawless in the genre it's in it has to be one of the best RPGs out.

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.

It's ok, optimization is reaaaally bad and play at 35/40 fps in cities isn't such a good thing but u know? who cares, better 40 fps than 30 one pf ps.
    I loved so much all characters, especially kassandra, and the story too.
    Is not the ac of old good times, but is a really good "new" assassin's creed

    ubisoft, you could have done better especially for the optimization but all in all, good work

    The side quests and honestly the entire story are boring as hell
    Comabt System is a big improvement over AC Origins but still feels weird.
    Overall the game feels rushed and unfinished and its a shame unfinished product costs 60 dollars

    Yep, they went and copy-pasted Origins on top of Oddysey. Terrible optimization, balanced around microtransactions.. I don't know what to say.Yep, they went and copy-pasted Origins on top of Oddysey. Terrible optimization, balanced around microtransactions.. I don't know what to say. Dialogue is improved from previous game. Combat feels lackluster, there is no feeling to it. Just stay away. Grind grind grind implemented for you to shell out extra money for the base game (15 euros extra to get a sort of normal grind speed - ie you buy a 50% money and xp boost that is permanent on your account). That is just atrocious. Expand

    -> **** YOU, Ubisoft. HOW DARE YOU put items behind a paywall - when you have a FULL PRICE game with a DLC SEASON PASS.

    Game could have been awesome.

    But this attitude towards the playerbase MUST be punished.

    Summary: 0/10 !
