    Legacy of the First Blade: Hunted is a brief but welcome new slice of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that sets the stage for the more traditional Assassins-versus-Templars-style micro-drama that was mostly missing from the base game. Though it's isolated to a single region and only gives you a handful of targets, an intriguing villain and the backstory of new characters sets a good foundation for more Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – which is always a good thing.

    The added lore is a welcome addition in the episode but what Hunted boils down to is this: if what you want is to spend three more hours doing the same things you did for sixty hours, then Legacy of the Lost Blade’s first episode is a success on all fronts.

    With a scenario designed for an episodic release and a bit of fan service, this first DLC is a good way to continue the adventure of Odyssey, even if the region of Macedonia is already known to us.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Legacy of the First Blade - Episode 1: Hunted is a solid starting point for what could turn out to be an interesting story. While the DLC doesn't bring anything new to the table in terms of gameplay variation, it does provide a well made slice of open world adventuring, complete with some thoughtful character moments. It goes without saying, but if you're a fan of Odyssey, then you're going to enjoy Hunted.

    Legacy of the First Blade is a mostly underwhelming first DLC that has some interesting story information for long term fans of the Assassin's Creed series.

    With this new Assassin's Creed Odyssey storyline, the player is pleased to meet those who are not the Assassins yet, but still use their hidden blade. This very short DLC is filled with interesting characters, but the lack of brand new mechanics at this stage should make you wait until the release of all the three episodes to buy this DLC.

    If, like me, you’ve become enamored of this brassy game, Legacy of the First Blade is a pleasing slice of extra stuff. For a short time, it threatens to say something vital about games, heroism and violence. I take this as a good sign for the future of this form of entertainment, and as a frustrating demonstration of its present limitations.

Unfortunately ifThe first piece of the Legacy of the First Blade DLC is definitely more of the base game and everything you enjoyed in it. Unfortunately if didn't enjoy the base game, then this won't change your mind. Nothing new to game-play, it pretty just more story and more people to kill. They do add a new skill armors and weapons but they aren't special or cool enough to change your play-style or get the DLC for. Expand

    The first episode of Legacy of the First Blade boring, dreary and monotonous. In general I expected that will explain from where in generalThe first episode of Legacy of the First Blade boring, dreary and monotonous. In general I expected that will explain from where in general the hidden blade who such these Persians and has all this what relation to an original game undertook. I was not given anything new, just filled out the empty and dead map of Macedonia with game activities. The only plus - final fight with the leader of a branch of their Award Ancient.
    The ending so in general finally bores, again nothing was told and suggested to pass the 2nd episode.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Story and missions are good. Some new introduced characters lack character depth.

    Gay RPG players beware that your eagle bearer might act out of character regarding an implied forced hetero romance and a normal life with a child.
    This definitely is going to happen in episode two. I just have been forced to play through this last night, despite luring you into a safe feeling that you can avoid this with the dialogie options.
    YOU WILL BE FORCED INTO A HETERO ROMANCE AND A BABY IN EPISODE 2.
