    A triumph of open world design, exploration, and writing. And one of the most endearing characters you'll meet in a videogame.

    Immortals: Fenyx Rising is an excellent new adventure title for Ubisoft, full to bursting with genuine comedy, excellent gameplay, and devious puzzles. While there are a few technical hiccups, underutilized DualSense, and sub-30 fps Switch ports, the game is fantastic on all platforms. Come for the bizarre Greek mythology, stay for the stellar gameplay -- Immortals: Fenyx Rising is a fantastic holiday treat.

    As a newly unique offering from Ubisoft, Immortals Fenyx Rising is something to savour. Yeah, it’s the publisher's third massive open-world release in the space of three months but what you get here is charming and refreshing to a fault. A wonderfully realised journey into myth and legend where everything fits as neatly as a chest-plate forged in the fires of Hephaistos’s Great Forge. The story, the combat, the puzzles, the exploration, the challenge, the Creed, the Zelda. The Fenyx.

    Ubisoft Quebec aims for a grand epic tale and while the game doesn't quite hit those heights, the developer does put together a pretty good summer blockbuster.

    Immortals: Fenyx Rising is very similar to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but that's a good thing. An extensive and motivating action-adventure game with a really beautiful world.

    From stoner oracles to gods who have been turned into trees, to the sheer batshittiness of its entire cast of gods and monsters, Immortals Fenyx Rising is a genuine joy to play, and a real treat for Greek mythology lovers. It’s got personality to burn, and both puzzle and combat design capable of mechanically backing it up. It’s a shame that the platforming can be so unforgiving, and that crashes happen far more than you’d like them to, but these are both problems that can be rectified in future updates. Once that happens, Immortals could easily - and surprisingly - go down as one of the best games of the year.

    Immortals Fenyx Rising has a strong argument for being the nadir of open world action-adventure games.

    Comparing this game to Breath of the Wild or Assassins Creed: Odyssey is like saying Battlefield is a COD copycat or Sonic is the same asComparing this game to Breath of the Wild or Assassins Creed: Odyssey is like saying Battlefield is a COD copycat or Sonic is the same as Mario because it’s 2D platform we. Even though there are similarities between Immortals and Zelda, this is its own entity entirely. Fans of Greek mythology will have enough enjoyment with the story to justify the purchase, & open world action enthusiasts can drop hours into entertaining side missions without touching the main story. The combat feels fresh with every turn as the upgrade system is perfectly paced, and when tough boss encounters are met, it doesn’t take long to go back and find the necessary upgrades to smash that pesky demon. The aesthetic upgrades are not hollow as they add boosts to your skill set so you may tailor to your play style. Visually the game is vibrant, colorful, and a joy to traverse on foot, by air, or by horseback. Although I usually found the boots on the ground approach the most fun as you’re sure to run into a chest or two that you might have missed while scanning the environment from a mountain top. My biggest knock on the game is that it doesn’t look nearly as good as it should on a 4K UHD TV while running on an X box one S. My initial thought when first playing was the Fable 3 still looks better than this game does at times, and while this could be a killer for most people (rightfully so) the game is just so damn fun I stopped caring about the pixelated trees and birds less than an hour in. The puzzles are a fun addition and while they won’t keep you up at night wondering how to solve them, at least 1/10 will make you stop and plan out a few moves in advance. The writing is solid and the voice actors make the narration by Zeus and Prometheus hilarious to listen to as the two often poke fun at their own ridiculous antics. I have had an absolute blast with this game, and it is one of the best games I have played in years. Expand

Ubisoft Quebec is good at combining gameplay and solid information on mythology in a humorous way that rarely happens. By the way, the humor in the game is great, I don't know why the critics decided that it was not funny. Expand

    While i love AC:Odyssey and this game is supposedly made by same people i quite disliked the game. its very pretty and fun first few hours,While i love AC:Odyssey and this game is supposedly made by same people i quite disliked the game. its very pretty and fun first few hours, then its just repetetive grind in an essentialy empty world ( there is lots to do, but its same minigames, combat, etc. no people, interesting quests beyond main story or anything ). The puzzles are super tedious, while creative, they stretch for so long, its just chore after chore, because it has so many steps and so many rooms with so many steps to complete some of the puzzles. I realy suffered through those parts. The combat is good, writing is sometimes exceptionally good, sometimes horrific. About half way through i just wanted to finish the game and didnt know it will take so long. Design is good, visuals good, premise good, but its just cartoony, watered down, way more grindy and boring version of AC:Odyssey ( and i I am fully aware of how repetetive some aspects of Odyssey were, but at least you had choice how to approach them ) Expand

    Flying mechanics suck and level design makes no sense, you can't give me a trial mission close to the start of the game without explainingFlying mechanics suck and level design makes no sense, you can't give me a trial mission close to the start of the game without explaining what you're supposed to do, how can you jump 5 times your height without advanced skills? The trial says it gives you all the abilities you need but not even close. Expand
