    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.

    Reseña por Alguien a Quien Jamás le Gustó AC.

    JUGABILIDAD:
    Las similitudes con Horizon Zero Dawn son indiscutibles, pero no es algo que demerite el juego. Al contrario, HZD fue un juego de 10 y aunque este titulo no consigue igualarlo, lo cierto es que hace un buen trabajo.

    Con un buen sistema de exploración, un sistema de combate útil y una enorme cantidad de cosas por hacer, Assassin's Creed Odyssey es el ejemplo perfecto de cómo debe ser un juego de Mundo Abierto. Con buenas misiones principales y secundarias, con una buena variedad entre ellas. Muchos campamentos por encontrar y derrotar y muchos cofres por abrir será difícil (terminar) aburrirnos con este juego.

    Los mercenarios son geniales y son un buen añadido, pero lo cierto es que en ocasiones te echan a perder algunas misiones al meterse en lo que no les importa (LOL). Derrotarlos es una victoria personal y anima a seguir jugando para poder encontrar a más de esas mini-jefes.

    El apartado inspirado en RPG es muy bueno. Mientras que muchos juegos fallan en él, aquí la personalización del outfit y los efectos que cada pieza tiene en nuestro protagonista son, si bien poco originales, apropiados para hacernos sentir que de verdad somos nosotros los que decidimos qué potenciar.

    El modo de combate me gustó bastante, es muy rápido y eficaz. La variedad de armas y, por tanto, de movimientos es buena. Aunque no deja de ser un hack&slash lo cierto es que no me imagino al juego con un método de combate más complejo.

    El árbol de habilidades está bien, al igual que las mejoras que podemos comprar para el barco. Nada especialmente espectacular pero sí muy útil a la hora de jugar.

    La jugabilidad en el barco está bien desarrollada y puede entretener bastante, aunque queda claro que no era el punto principal el crear un juego de piratas.

    La integración con Ícaro es estupenda y su ayuda como "espía" en las misiones es funcional y un buen detalle sin llegar a ser obligatorio. Puede facilitarnos mucho las cosas pero, más que eso, le da una interesante variedad al Gameplay.

    GRÁFICOS:
    Visualmente es atractivo, tanto las ciudades como las zonas abiertas se sienten con vida y están llenas de detalles que podemos apreciar.

    Las cinemáticas, sin embargo, parecen quedarse cortas y se siente poco trabajada la narrativa. Sobre todo porque las animaciones son un poco torpes.

    El estilo visual pretende ser realista, y lo cierto es que lo consigue. Pero repito: la narrativa se ha quedado muy atrás, tanto en escenas in-game como en las cinemáticas.

    SONIDO:
    El soundtrack es decente, pero sin mucho alarde. El verdadero punto fuerte del sonido son todos los efectos de fondo: murmullos, gritos, animales, la naturaleza en sí misma.

    El desarrollador ha prestado especial cuidado en que cada ciudad, bosque, costa y puerto se escuche lleno de vida.

    INNOVACIÓN:
    Desde el inicio quise dejar en claro dos cosas:
    1- Nunca he sido fan de un AC (hasta ahora)
    2- El juego recuerda mucho, mucho a HZD

    Dicho eso, no creo poder argumentar a favor de la innovación del título, más que en aquellos detalles puntuales como Ícaro.

    Yet another game that hurts itself by padding it with loads and loads of repetitive, boring, fetch quests and an overly gigantic map whereYet another game that hurts itself by padding it with loads and loads of repetitive, boring, fetch quests and an overly gigantic map where most of it lacks actual content.

    Had it not been too long and overly padded, this game could've been something much greater.

    Graphics are pretty good, I love the setting and how they added some historically accurate elements. Gameplay can get pretty repetitive as with most of the latest Ubisoft games, story is not bad at all but due to how gigantic this game is, it loses a bit of its impact since I got constantly sidetracked.

Assassins Creed, Far Cry, Ghost Recon Wildlands are basically the same exact game in different settings - no joke.
