    Assassin’s Creed Origins manages to live up to the expectation that the preview event gave me. I dubbed it “near perfect” after that event, and the final product does not disappoint. A few pacing issues late in the story caused things to drag a little bit, and the loot system doesn’t remain intriguing after the first few hours, but finding a complaint beyond that is difficult. You can nitpick some of the graphical hiccups or complain about repetitive side quests, but even those manage to stay fun and interesting with all of the different styles of play. On a day with two other heavy hitting AAA games and an amazing TV show releasing simultaneously, your time and money are going to be precious commodities. With Game of the Year talks coming up, Assassin’s Creed Origins is a serious contender for the title in my book.

    For those of you who were suffering from franchise fatigue, Assassin’s Creed Origins should cure your ailment. Ubisoft’s increased development time for the game brought a gigantic open-world full of stories, exciting battles, and a loot system that have you exploring for dozens of hours.

    Ubisoft Montreal managed to make Egypt not only beautiful, but extremely atmospheric. When you’re admiring the city and a mounted patrol rushes past you, you always get that urge to step aside to avoid getting trampled, even though you know you can eviscerate them all in a blink of an eye.

    Assassin's Creed: Origins marks a new beginning for the series as this open-world prequel successfully merges the old and new. While not perfect, the result is still a deeply satisfying Egyptian playground that will revitalize your love for a series that was starting to fall by the wayside.

    Naturally, once you've beaten the main quests you can continue exploring the world, and the biggest compliment I can give Origins is that I'd much rather be playing it than writing about it. It's a got a dazzling and beautiful setting, lots of enjoyable systems for mischief and mayhem, and has just the right amount of diversions and distractions to keep you busy without ever feeling like busywork. The extra year Ubisoft took with Origins didn't result in a completely new and novel experience, but it did provide one of the best games in the Assassin's Creed series.

    This killer holiday in Egypt is definitely no boring. On the contrary, it is a pleasant excursion to the times, when the sphinx had a nose, and mysterious killers did not call themselves assassins. You cannot find a nicer version of an Ancient Egypt in any other game, and up to it it’s entertaining. A modest family story affects the whole empire at the end, and you will forgive a handful of bugs to its charismatic heroes, as well as the fact, that you have played the same pattern so many times, just in another scenery.

    Why not think of Assassin’s Creed: Origins as a lovely and chill sightseer sim? It only took about forty hours of game tax to get here, but you’ve earned it.

    Whoever giving below 8 to this game is probably has bad intentions. This is the best Assassin’s Creed game I have ever played. Atmosphere isWhoever giving below 8 to this game is probably has bad intentions. This is the best Assassin’s Creed game I have ever played. Atmosphere is breathtaking, story is very interesting and I love Egypt setting! There is a lot of work done and you can feel that with awesome details. Combat is very fun and addicting. Bayek is a very strong character and you will love playing as him. New eagle vision is an eagle that you can control to tag and track everything and it’s very useful. You will love this adventure game. Expand

Combat is the strongest aspect in my opinion. I have played many assassins creed games and after syndicate, i felt that assassins creed felt too familiar and kinda boring. This game reinvents much in a way that keeps the feeling but is new altogether. Expand

    Visuals are amazing using the autoconfigured preset which was high for everything getting 50-65 FPS on high settings even during combat. Using Uplay client to play the game not steam version. Uplay client built games just run better on Uplay and steam users always complain about more bugs on the steam version.

    I love that you get flashback missions not just cutscenes when something big happens like killing a high-rank enemy, giving you a backstory to the point of why your taking down this high rank masked one etc. the map is quite big bigger than any AC universe and if you wanna 100% this game then it will take you some time.

    Struggling a little with combat I'm so used to countering then killing like all the other AC games if you think the combat is simple compared to the other games your in for a little surprise!

    YES! there is a Helix credit system, so for people who don't have time to grind can buy in-game currency to spend and some weapons can be unlocked via Uplay credits which are free to earn via your Uplay account anyway. I personally don't buy in-game content at all and only believe that if micro-transactions are on multiplayer games it is unfair.... for single player games the only things you buy with your real money for in-game currency..... if you even want to buy them only affects your personal experience for campaign, not like GTA Online, Battlefield, Battlefront 1 & 2 Loot Packs etc etc so for single player content i don't mind but I personally don't buy content from any game I play!

    Apart from that 10/10 definately an upgrade for syndicate and the bugged monster Unity!

    Would recommend.

    the main story is typical. here's your protagonist, here's the tragedy, the protagonist seek revenge, the protagonist got betrayed, and thethe main story is typical. here's your protagonist, here's the tragedy, the protagonist seek revenge, the protagonist got betrayed, and the protagonist kinda win. and that's it.
    the fun part however, is the side quests. there are absurd ones, there are pretty good ones, and some have .... a rather comedic tendencies.
    i do like the new gameplay mechanic, but the gold farming system for upgrading weapons level is kinda annoying... the hunting part is okay though

    Let me start by saying I am a big AC fan you have no idea and I played every AC game out there except the 2D ones.

    I can tell you this is not an AC game. The design and feel of the game is totally different. It simply a whole new game with an AC skin and name. Even if it didn't have the AC name I would still think its a bad game.

    Why bother play this game when there is a Witcher 3 game that is a galaxy far far away from this garbage. They tried so had to make the world as big as possible without putting time in other important stuff like story and other stuff that made AC an AC game.

    The story is bad with too many tailing missions. The performance is so damn bad and the worst thing of this game on even the high end PCs. All in all AC is totally dead to me after AC-Syndicate which was an awesome game which was very underrated by many and many did not even give it a chance.

    Let me tell you something you damn Ubisoft. There was nothing wrong with the previous ACs because each one was getting better and better. The only downside is that they lacked the content off side missions and a bit smarter Ai. And in the end they were all better than this.
