    Perfects everything Origins did and enhances them in ways you never thought an Assassin's Creed game could. Odyssey has it all.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey becomes one of the best chapters of the saga to date. Its history involves from beginning to end and the recreation of Ancient Greece is simply sublime. Its mechanics are the result of everything learned in previous chapters and achieve an immersive gameplay. If you are a fan of the saga and you like RPG games, Assassin´s Creed Odyssey is an essential on your bookshelf.

    With Odyssey, Ubisoft has crafted the biggest Assassin's Creed to date. A colossal open world, action RPG, that can go toe to toe with the biggest names in the genre. If you're a fan of this kind of game, don't miss it.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is big and beautiful. Could it be a much better game? Sure. But it's an amazing adventure with echoes of the Greek classic tales about travels and fantasy.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a superb open world RPG. It can be a little rough around the edges, but there's a gameplay freedom to this particular adventure that's really a cut above what the series has attempted previously. With a gameplay loop that simply never stops giving, Ubisoft's recreation of ancient Greece is an amazing achievement, and in some ways, a genuine step forward for open world game design.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey throws so much stuff at you, it's difficult to sift through it all. It's a beautiful game to look at and the story is intriguing, but it feels like a game that could have been a little more ambitious if given more time to develop. There's good ideas, from the branching story and character choice to the return of ship-based combat, but its ambitions also fray around the edges in a way that Origins didn’t.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey features a rich, lush world lessened by its repetitive activities. Though the main story is compelling, completing it requires you to participate in a massive amount of level grinding through less-than-stellar side quests. There’s plenty to do in this world, but a lot of it feels like busy work that fights to stay exciting or compelling. Odyssey is yet another open world game that misinterprets the meaning of more content.

    As others have said - if you like AC Origins, you will love Odyssey. I'm happy with the switch to RPG format. There is absolutely nothingAs others have said - if you like AC Origins, you will love Odyssey. I'm happy with the switch to RPG format. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. This game is well-made (mostly), grand in scale and thoroughly entertaining for hours on end.

    AC Odyssey has only one glaring drawback in my opinion. In contrast to Origins, the melee combat in Odyssey is subpar. And since melee combat may be the overriding component of one's play style, I considered scoring this one 9 out of 10. However, I feel this game deserves a 10 because everything aside from melee combat is class. Plus, if you're accurately spec'd for ranged combat and good with the bow, you can easily one or two-shot literally every non-boss enemy type in HARD mode - including mercenaries - using basic arrows. Therefore, making melee combat redundant. Moreover, the mechanics of ranged combat in Odyssey are vastly improved over Origins.

    At no point during my tens of hours of play was I interrupted by, forced to or felt the need to invest in a micro-transaction of any sort. All micro-transactions in AC Odyssey are neatly tucked away in a side menu - out of sight.

    It may or may not be true that one can't simply play through the main questline while ignoring side activities, due to alleged hurdles in levelling. I wouldn't know because I did a heck of a lot of side activities throughout. There are many different kinds of level-boosting side activities in AC Odyssey. Yes, the daily/weekly side quests posted on billboards are mostly monotonous. But, there are other side quests scattered throughout the world that play out similarly to those in Witcher 3. There is a lot to do in this game - moreso than in Origins. Nonetheless, I understand that some players may not have time for side activities.

    Although the game is several months old, it has been hit with a lot of negativity recently so I feel compelled to give a positive note for aAlthough the game is several months old, it has been hit with a lot of negativity recently so I feel compelled to give a positive note for a change. Why? Because in and of itself, AC Odyssey is not a bad game. Every game has room for improvement of course, but the main complaint: paying for micro-transactions or need to grind is in my opinion over the top.

    I've played this game for some time now, and not for a moment did I have the feeling that I needed to grind to level. What might set me apart from most reviewers is that this is the first AC game I've ever played. Maybe the game doesn't fit enough in the AC brand and divert from the previous games. I don't know, and honestly, I don't care. Like I said, in and of itself, the game is not bad.

    To sum up the things I liked most: beautiful graphics, which even on my not top notch GTX1060 run fluent almost the entire time. An interesting and motivating main quest line, with enough fun side quests to keep me from boredom. A plethora of items and interaction, including quite realistic horse riding (contrary to vertical movement in Skyrim for example) and controlling several kinds of boats up to your own galley.

    Conclusion: good immersion, good quests, good graphics and not a single urge to pay Ubisoft an extra cent to speed up the game.

    People might get boring playing this series over and over again. But for a player who plays for the first time, it looks pretty good.

    Comprado en pack junto a Origins por 29'99€.

    Más de lo mismo. Muy poca o nula innovación frente al anterior, es prácticamente un calco y en mi caso, el jugar uno detrás del otro me hizo sentir eso todavía mas fuerte.

    El hecho de elegir el género del protagonista es una idea atractiva que está bien y resulta agradecido cambiar de masculino a femenino por primera vez en la saga, pero lo cierto es que uno de los dos protagonistas se siente una pura copia del otro y habría estado bien que cada género tuviese una forma de andar, correr y atacar diferentes.

    El doblaje es malísimo.
