    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.

    Fenyx is essentially a faster paced, condensed version of BotW. The sense of wonder and exploration is gone in place of just zooming fromFenyx is essentially a faster paced, condensed version of BotW. The sense of wonder and exploration is gone in place of just zooming from location to location which are clearly marked on your map while avoiding enemies and constantly using fast travel. The game is more action oriented, the crafting system is simplified, and the lack of degradable weapons removes all strategy from the combat and takes all the reward out of fighting enemies. Whether you like this new direction and feel it makes the game more fun, or whether you feel like the game was dumbed down will depend on the gamer. I didn't like it as much as BotW, but I appreciate them trying something different in what may be becoming a new genre of games. I signed up for month of Uplay so I could play the game, and it's definitely worth it. I didn't like it nearly as much a BotW, but I give it a lot of credit for establishing its own identity and not just being a carbon copy. 84/100. 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
