    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Игра просто шикарна, когда я сажусь играть, я даже отойти поесть не могу, она просто затягивает и ты погружаешься в игровой мир. Так у меня было только с The Witcher 3.
    Не зря Ubi сделали паузу, они реально сделали шикарную игру. Я думал что на старте первую неделю игра будет лагать, вылетать и просто не даст тебе поиграть. Но нет, всё круто оптимизировано. Игровой мир великолепен. Он стал больше. Он стал разнообразнее. Он стал интереснее. Сюжет тоже на высоте, игру проходить интересно. Боёвка стала интереснее, она теперь реально нравится, наконец то меня затягивают и ты не лезешь на толпу врагов ( у меня высокий ур. сложности ). Квесты тоже нравятся, исследовать древний египет очень круто. Система РПГ тоже радует, разнообразные виды оружий со своими бафами позволяют тебе проходить игру так как тебе нравятся, и выбрать любимый стиль. Маленькие минусы:
    - анимации не доработаны, пример: когда у тебя в руки оружие, допустим меч, ты нажимаешь ПКМ и у тебя моментально в руке появляется лук, это плохо. И когда у тебя открыты 2 слота для оружия и ты их переключаешь он появляются и исчезают на персонаже.
    - возможно что то у меня не так, но большая нагрузка на проц, у меня игра на оч. высоких с залоченым фпс на 45, у меня i5 4690 gtx 1060 8gb озу, при игре большая нагрузка на проц. и видюха на 70-90%, надеюсь разрабы патчами это потправят или nvidia дрова выпустит.
    Не знаю, игра очень нравится, вот хочется придраться, вот есть недочёты, но чёрт возьми 10/10.
    P.S игру часто сравнивают с третим ведьмаком, и действительно - игры очень похожи, но в асасине нет той души и атмосферы которая была в ведьмаке, а именно - диалоги и нелинейный сюжет. Ну пропустим нелинейный сюжет, так как если бы его делали выпуск игры затянулся бы, но боже, диалоги такие унылые, я слушаю диалоги только в основных миссиях, и то с трудом, остальные сразу пропускаю.

    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.

    Assassin's Creed Origin is a fantastic game, it's a great and rich open-world experience like I have not seen in awhile.
    Honestly this really is one of my favourite games of the genre already, and without a doubt, the best of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

    Visually it’s fantastic, with superb graphics, so perfect that even in the most deserted areas it is visually stunning and full of details. And details were not spared and everything seems unique. In these great open world games it is very common to reuse resources, but here everything seems different. all cities have their unique architectural elements all the caves, dungeons and fortresses are different even taking into account all the normal similarities.

    The main quest it is interesting and emotional. And it's huge… when you think you're ending you still have more and more. The secondary quests are very varied, having numerous small interesting stories that help in the immersion of the historical period and the construction and energy of the world.

    Overall it's a fantastic experience which can last more than 80 hours, easily. A must have to any fan of Assassin's Creed franchise and any Action-RPG fan.

    If a SJW committee made a game this would be it. Utterly forgettable story and characters.

After being out of the loop of playing games (school) I decided to get back to playing AC. I made the mistake of playing Odyssey before Origins. I thought it would make a big difference and at first it was. I missed the Spartan kick and a few other things but all in all it was not noticeable. I give the game a solid 8.
