Graphic and art is amazing, except for the fact that the same art appears in multiple temples. Trust me, there is more Greek art out there. Expand

    Now back to business. If I had not been told the name of the game, I would not have guessed that this is an assassin's creed. Where is a cloak and hood? Are we an assassin or some nameless warrior? Many canonical attributes have been removed from the game.

    Previously, you could kill any enemy. Now, if the difference is 2-3 levels, then the battle turns into dull rifts. Now you need to farm, farm, farm to get a level and a new weapon. Bravo! And if you are too lazy, then you can buy in-game items for real money. Can you smell it? It smells like free-2-play game for 60$.

    It's an OK game but it doesn't really feel like assassin's creed. I mean yes Origin's mechanics are still there but i just can't feel like i'm playing a game from the serie that i've been playing for years. It's more like a spin off game. It's definitely not bad but not really assassin's creed either.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a complicated game. It has many things about it that are great. It also has many common problems. This game may be one of my most complicated of all times. I have nearly 60 hours on this game and I can't decide if it is good or bad, so I go with mixed.

    This is the first Assassin’s Creed game to be more RPG like, where you choose who you play as, what kind of gear they wear, and what choices they make (some greatly affect the game more than others). It has reduced present day (probably makes up around 35 minutes of screentime for the average player), supernatural and powerful items, clothing and weapons with different abilities and traits and a vast open world with tons of stuff to do. The final part is where the game shines, but also where it is at its most issues.

    It starts out mostly good, where you get to choose your character after playing as the legendary Leonidas where you build up your character. Then after some hard choices and three hours of gameplay, you get your ship where you can explore anywhere that is around your level. Then you are sent to a few islands where you have to do a few side quests and more choices. Then go to another land with more side quests and a few story. Then more and more stuff etc. It gets kind of repetitive though still a little fun. Etc. etc. But in the later game, the repetitive stuff feels much less fun and like a total grind. Only when you reach a certain level, does you feel really powerful, like you can defeat all these guys and beat the game! You have three main Odysseys to complete that they put a lot of work into. But after beating all 3 of them, it doesn't feel totally satisfying as it should, but more rewarding than not.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey has many strengths and weaknesses. The strengths revolve around its open world, great graphics, character design, etc. The weaknesses are the stuff in it that is just too much and makes the game much more long than it needs to be. The other biggest problem is Microtransactions, which just shouldn't be in any single-player game! Just too much stuff!! (which is funny since many games are too short, this game is too long). I had fun playing this but would prefer less grinding and to return to its roots.

    As someone whose interest in AC had lapsed some years ago, I was dubious about playing Odyssey, but as a sucker for history, I was pulled in by the ancient Greece setting. Having now spent 100 hours playing the game, I can say that it has been a pleasant surprise and left me looking forward to seeing what future AC installments will offer.

    Odyssey is interesting in that it seems to be transitioning AC away from being a pure third person action game and into a more RPG focused style of game, with leveling, gearing, and skill progression systems to customise your gameplay experience. its is clear that Ubisoft have taken significant design cues from The Witcher 3 for many of Odyssey's gameplay and narrative elements, so if you enjoyed Witcher 3, Odyssey is likely to scratch the same itch, even if it is not of the same quality as TW3.

    On the narrative side, the story is surprisingly engaging and kept me interested throughout the 80hrs I spent on the main campaign. While it is hardly revolutionary in terms of storytelling, it clearly shows that Ubisoft are trying new things by including dual protagonists, dialogue choices, and romance subplots. While it never manages to execute any of these things with the same level of skill as Bioware, CDPR, or Obsidian, it nonetheless shows that the devs are trying to evolve the series to increase player agency, which is a good thing, IMO.

    From a value standpoint, AC: Odyssey is an excellent proposition with a lengthy (40+hrs) main campaign, and huge amounts of side content to do, including killing a series of mythical beasts of Greek legend, an arena gladiatorial contest, ship battles, a mercenary system vaguely reminiscent of the Nemesis system in Mordor, as well as other features that would be spoilers. If anything, there is almost too many systems in the game and it might have benefited from having fewer systems with more depth given to the best of those features. In any case, you will not lack for things to do at any stage.

    My only real complaints are the technical performance, and the grind walls that you occasionally encounter during the campaign. I experienced frequent fps drops even on the Pro, and a persistent bug that causes the game to lock up for a few seconds every now and then, which may cause you to get killed if it happens in the middle of a battle. Its clear that Odyssey is a very demanding game that pushes even the enhanced consoles to their absolute limit, so i would be cautious about attempting to play it on the base consoles if you are at all sensitive to fps dips.

    On the issue of grind walls, be aware that you may find yourself required at times to either stop the main campaign for a time and go and do side quests to level up, or to purchase the XP boost microtransaction item if you just want to play the main story. This will not be an issue if you are a completionist, but it may well annoy some players who want to focus on the main plot.

    Overall, AC Odyssey is an extremely enjoyable and ambitious game that brims with content and looks and sounds stunning. While it falters here and there in certain design decisions, it is well worth your time if you are a fan of AC games, action RPGs, and/or open worlds, and you have 50-100 hours to spare.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's world is both huge and stunning. As something of an Ancient Greece fanatic, exploring this particular universe was extremely rewarding. The vast character customisation, the plethora of NPCs and associated quests combined with the sheer satisfaction of hunting down members of the Cult of Kosmos meant I easily clocked over 100 hours on this game.

    However... I found Odyssey to be one of the most frustrating games I've played and by the time I'd completed it, was totally dissatisfied and glad to put the disk back in the box.

    Something I noticed almost immediately and which became ever-more apparent as the game progressed was that Odyssey is essentially Assassin's Creed: Origins with an Ancient Greece skin. Sure the combat has evolved and sure the naval aspect has added a new dimension to the game, yet, it really feels as though you're simply playing the same game twice. Origins was groundbreaking when it was released - it totally revamped the AC series - and I absolutely loved it, but this feeling was simply not replicated with Odyssey.

    The map is massive and is full of places to explore but after you've visited a few regions, everywhere feels the same. Each region is full of the same mundane locations (camps, fortresses, tombs etc.) and monotonous tasks (fetch this/kill that) to the extent that there is simply no incentive to engage in the game as fully as the beauty of the world deserves. New quests such as the legendary animal fights, mercenaries and the conquest battles are rendered totally pointless as there is simply no need to engage with them - either the rewards are not worth your time or the outcome of the quest has no bearing on the outcome of the game.

    In addition to the quests, I found the combat to be extremely repetitive and unengaging. Alexios/Kassandra were super weak, needing only to be hit a few times to die whilst most enemies took forever to kill! Only a few of the abilities are actually useful in open combat and as a result of this, every enemy (including bosses) felt the same and were defeated using the same strategy. All the weapons in their individual classes felt the same (daggers are pathetic, heavy weapons too slow) and the bows in particular were so underwhelming! In Origins, I would take out targets from distance and get one shot kills - shooting a target from distance in Odyssey merely grazes them, thereby alerting nearby enemies and ruining the stealth approach!

    The endings to all three story 'chapters' were abysmal. The family story was utterly disappointing, the cult story ending was atrocious and I've no idea how the Atlantis story ends as you have to buy a f****** DLC!!! Such poor endings left a sour taste; a shame considering the amount of hours I put into the game.

    A few other minor issues that bothered me:
    - Don't think the rolling animation after jumping/falling ever timed properly/looked smooth;
    - Horse animation was rubbish;
    - Didn't like how you couldn't hide from enemies like you could in earlier releases;
    - I hated how you couldn't see the Adrestia as you were upgrading it - to see what it looked like before/after;
    - The amount of times I entered photo mode during a fight... :@
    - Not being able to kick mercenaries off high levels;
    - After being killed in a mission, more often than not, you'd respawn miles away from where you started it - meaning you'd have to get all the way to the start point again for absolutely no reason!

    Finally, a note on performance: this is the only game I've played on PS4 thus far that has crashed, and it did so around seven times during the course of my play-through.

    Clearly, a lot of things annoyed me about this game, though this is not to say that I hated it. I loved Odyssey for the first few hours/regions and found the mythical creatures to be a highlight. But the monotony and lack of anything 'new' coupled with the utterly disappointing endings saw me desperate to finish the game, not out of intrigue but so I could be done with it, regrettably. A shame really.

    If you are looking for a RPG, I'll rate it a 6. Ubisoft has been selling it as a RPG but it does not deliver on this genre even though the game is definitely better than Origins. It is not enough to have (poor) dialogue choices and levels and XP to state you are a RPG. You do not feel that you are in control of your destiny. Your impact on the world is limited. You can win epic battles! But whether you win or loose these epic battles, it has no more impact than if you kill or not a wild boar in the wilderness... You just get loot. You can side with Athenians or Spartans but it does not matter. Nothing really matters...

    I love the idea that AC would turn more into a RPG but then it needs to meet the RPG requirements not just pretend. And AC as a RPG is really far from the best games in this category. But as a typical AC game, action oriented, kudos to the team for delivering a fun and enjoyable game.

I recommend this game at a very low price, probably under $20 if you want to run around a really gorgeous world and engage with mindless, mediocre content. But it's safe to say this is a very disappointing game and I have no hopes of Assassin's Creed getting any better in the future. What a shame. Collapse

While the main plot is decent this time around, the world is full of useless fetch quests and checklists(get this, kill that, clear that fortress etc) and the interesting side quests are very few. The map is too big for its own good. Not only it is filled with the same repetitive activities, but there are reused assets everywhere. See that nice temple over there? Now every temple you'll see for the rest of the game will be the exact same temple. Odyssey clearly favors quantity over quality,

    And now to the really bad stuff - grinding and level scaling. Want to follow the main story? You can't because if you are one level below the required level(and believe me you'll be far below the required level if you didn't do any fetch quests) you have no hope to beat the mission because the level scaling is crap, the enemies are health sponges and they can kill you in 1-2 hits even if the level difference is 1-2 levels. The more you level up, the more difficult leveling up gets. If you wanna beat the main story, you gotta GRIND the endless fetch quests, no way around it. If you are one of those guys that likes to spend 100 hours on doing everything even if it's pointless and repetitive, then good for you man, you're gonna enjoy the endless grind. For the rest of us, thanks but no thanks. Let's move on to the microtransactions, shall we?

    Microtransactions. The bane of modern gaming. You'll reach a point in Odyssey after 15-20 hours that you realize leveling up takes too much effort, and then, you'll remember that nice EXP booster you saw in the store "50% more exp permanently for 10 bucks". What a freaking deal? amirite? Sure, you don't need to buy it. That's what every fanboy and Ubisoft tells us. And I gotta agree, you don't have to, you can spent dozens of hours doing repetitive tasks and quests instead, so you can finish the main story and be done with the game, while in the same time wondering why you even bought this game in the first place. Did Ubisoft designed the game a certain way making it a bit too grindy as to tempt the players to buy their xp/gold/item packs? or not? I don't know. You don't know. But I gotta ask the question. It doesn't take a genius to realize that maybe that is indeed the case here.

    Concluding, I can't give Odyssey higher than a 6. I can't really recommend this game except to those Ancient Greece enthusiasts, because this may be the best visual representation of Ancient Greece in any video game ever. Odyssey was fun the first 15-20 hours, then it got old fast and the grind basically killed the game for me. I believe that is the case for most people who wrote a negative review. I also hate microtransactions because they make me questioning the game design choices the devs made. Was it on purpose designed this way? or coincidence? I can't stop wondering. Anyway, in a 60 dollar game, these practices have no place.

    The side stuff is rather solid, not as tedious as MMORPG stuff, but still a bit repetitive, they do have good introductions. There are more MMORPGish quests you pick up from bulletin boards though, but I managed to max level without doing a lot of these. There are some fun things to do like the mercenary stuff, good semi challenging fights. Some side quests have good storylines, and there are some good "boss" fights in a hunter and another legendary boss type challenge. I platinumed the game.

When I heard about Odyssey, I was interested due to the setting, but was also unsure If I would enjoy the game due to the combat being similar to Origins. Personally I was always a fan of the old combat system in the previous games. Unfortunately I was right, and I didn't enjoy the combat through my 300+ hours. I did finish the game and get the platinum trophy but I think that was more the completionist in me than my enjoyment in the game. I'm still not a fan of the combat, it just doesn't feel right to me, the story is alright, nothing really got me on the edge of my seat and there aren't any memorable moments. The only reason I think I did enjoy some of the story is because I'm a big fan of the era, otherwise the story would probably just bore me. The rpg elements are cool and a good turning point for the series but since none of the choices you make have much impact it all feels pointless. The world is huge but never felt lived in or interesting and unfortunately your not an assassin so no hidden blade. I think the game is in that middle ground, it's not bad but it's not great. I've finished the main story and there's nothing I can really say apart from it was alright to my friends. Expand

    Graphics have never been better it's among few games of it's type to rival and in some cases out WOW you compared to the Witcher 3 . Story has it's good moments and the stealth options are more versatile compared to AC Origins, But there are a lot of negatives here.

    First things you should do if you don't own the top of the line PC is to tone down the Cloud crap as you can't actually see it and even when it's not visible it makes heavy impact on performance, noticeable are poping of objects in scene bcs of some bad LODs and tessellation on some of textures (rocks on stair like vineyards). On ultra btw. Other bad thing here is that AA makes amazing textures blurry and you only have one AA mode.
    As for the story it's way to dragged out by the size of the world , bigger is not better especially when quests and gameplay are so repetitive.
    As for stealth option in it's RPG tree is the weakest of all as your F (assassinate) wont have the dmg to kill most of the things when you go deeper in the game. But detection range and the skills that help work around that are solid thou the last one should just buff the assassinate dmg not only at dark but in general as you need that if you want to play that path. Thou assassins did not exist at that time but you still do dmg with an artifact that should feel powerful in it's own!

    Game has issues with grind if you dont keep your bounty between 2-3 and do some side quests you wont be able to progress in the story ! I had no issue like that as i did a lot of them early before i got sick of them.
    Conversation option should not be in the game as it's game about history seams like they tried to pull to much from the Witcher I would be happier with more cut scenes then following the NPC to have one or two meaningless responses.

    As for mercenary and naval i know that many say that was fun for them it was not for me they did not offer anything meaningful as a reward.

    Another BS is that you have to hunt and gather like insane to upgrade your Legendary gear or it will become obsolete, and ''path'' to assassin dmg buffer one and archery are locked behind lv wall.

    All in all solid but lacks a lot IMO smaller world of origins was better and more enjoyable this is a second entry into same style of gameplay they should have made better improvements and not add more unfinished options from other games that made those games great, current score that I see 5.1 is cutting it close to what this game is just above average.

    Juego divertido de mundo abierto con cientos de misiones y actividades, la única pega es que quieren seguir sacándote dinero incluso después de pagar 30-60€.

    El combate es muy divertido con la variedad de armas, habilidades, municiones, etc. Hay infinidad de armaduras y de categorías (epica, legendaria, etc.) Las misiones secundarias están muy bien, son interesantes y aunque suelen ser algo repetitivas, dado la cantidad que hay, existen muchas que tienen historias originales. La historia principal es interesante pero se desinfla a medida que avanza. El mapa es inmenso y los templos y localizaciones muy detallados.

    En general es un gran juego pero buscan alargarlo artificialmente (sin necesitarlo ya que hay contenido de sobra) con barreras de nivel entre misiones consecutivas de la historia principal. Te obligan a farmear y a realizar misiones secundarias, que están muy bien pero si te ves forzado a ello no las disfrutas. El hecho de que existan consumibles, disponibles con dinero real, que eliminan estas barreras con bonus de experiencia es sospechoso cuanto menos.

    A comentar también algo bastante relevante y es que los tiempos de carga en PS4 Pro son infinitos de hasta 2 o 3 minutos en algunos casos.

    En conclusión es un juego muy recomendable, divertido y con un trabajo artístico tremendo pero que queda manchado por las decisiones de marketing y monetización.

    At first, the game will amaze you with the visual fidelity of everything. The detail is incredible, even the vast world doesn’t lose its beauty, this is a game that if you have a 4K tv with HDR you should at least rent it to see what the visuals can be. With that being said, it is visually appealing but there are issues that will make this game, not for everyone.

    The graphics are one

With that being said, it is visually appealing but there are issues that will make this game, not for everyone.

    The graphics are one thing but another thing I felt a bit overwhelming was the sheer size of everything. Don’t get me wrong, having a vast open world is nice but here it just felt too big. There is too much to do and while some might consider that a plus, the issue is that the quests that you’re given just don’t feel that different enough. At first, it’s not too bad. It’s simple enough but after about 25 or so hours, it gets really repetitive with the same tasks, the main story missions end up feeling very similar and while there are a few good distractions and some of the side quests, while similar to the main story in term of how they’re put together and the tasks they do but some of them were entertaining.

    The gameplay is fun but it gets old, due to the copy and paste nature of the missions. Pretty much it comes down to either, raiding a base, engaging in a skirmish or killing certain targets. There is some flexibility with how things are done and while I get it, it is an Assassin’s Creed game it just felt like there just wasn’t enough variety. The Witcher 3 this is not.

    On PS4 pro it played fine, about 30 FPS without any major hiccups that I could see. Looks great in HDR and is truly a game worth getting if you love pretty graphics. On the other hand, there is a bit of loading when you first start the game. Nothing too bad. Less then a minute I think. After that, the game loads pretty briskly, there is brief loading when you talk to an NPC but it’s not a deal breaker at all. Sometimes the game glitches out. Textures won’t load sometimes and there is a bit of pop in. Sometimes the NPC’s you’re supposed to follow just don’t do what they’re supposed to do. That just requires a quick restart of the game. Annoying but not a huge problem.

    The main issue is the pacing. The game is just too long for its own good. Realistically, it should’ve ended at the 20-hour mark and then keep it going with side content. The plot just drags on. It starts off fine enough, it’s interesting and until you get to about 20-25 hours in and then it just seems to drag its feet. Don’t get me wrong, it is an interesting story, but the pacing killed it. Throw that in with a lack of variety in the story and you pretty much see everything that there is by about 20 hours in. Another problem is it’s grind heavy. Even with the exp booster microtransaction and playing on Easy mode it becomes a grind fest. To grind the best way is to do side quests but they just become so boring and monotonous you probably won’t want to.

    Due to the pacing issues with the main story and the grind-heavy nature of it and that you almost need to purchase a microtransaction just to have an edge in the grinding and even THEN it becomes very grind heavy and too repetitive I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. These things could easily be fixed in an update but right now? I don’t really recommend it. It could’ve been amazing but with some tweaks to the story’s structure, make grinding less of a chore and having more variety, it could’ve easily been one of the best historical RPG’s in recent years.

    Is it horrible? No, and it does have an audience. If you tend to like your games to be a bit more structured and like your narratives to not drag on though, it’s not for you.

    If you’re the type that only likes to buy a few games a year and wants a game that will last you and don’t mind repetitive missions and content, give it a go. It’ll probably be what you like.

    Other than that, I personally didn’t like how much it dragged on, especially after the 20-hour mark.

    I have to admit, I wasn't exactly blown away by Origins, despite overall enjoying the new direction the series started heading.

It looks nice, controls are not the best in the series but manageable, but the story just didn't work with me, the characters were boring, plot uninspiring and to be hones, I couldn't even force myself to finish it. The bland locations, where you go only because it is marker on the map with possible loot and xp which you need both to grind in between story parts to be able to keep up with escalating level of enemies, was just dull and incredible boring. I honestly couldn't squeeze an ounce of joy out of it.
    I might come to it back during Christmas and give it one more try, but after the 40 hours, the game didn't show me anything worth remembering and I have a feeling that after a year or two, I won't recall much more than it was in ancient Greece. And that's coming from a person who's gone through all previous instalments with platinum trophy.

I should not have to reboot the game because I can't use the torch anyone for some reason. I don't know what happened, the whole thing feels rushed. I love the graphics, the story, and the way mythology is intertwined. Maybe enough to get through this one. Maybe I'll go back to wishing for more of the game I just put down. 5/10. Expand

    This is unpolished Origins with bad combat.And the mercenary system is hilarious.In Origins dangerous foes called phylakes could be randomly run into or they would be called when fort alarm is activated and they die when they die.In Odyssey they endlessly respawn and will hunt you down when you are on a toilet on the moon.Cuz they know where you are!!!

    As a fan of Assassin's Creed, being someone who has played every AC game (but origins), and after spending 100+ hours on this game, I can totally say: DO NOT BUY IT. I'ts terrible, an absolute piece of sh*t. Don't waste your money on Ubisoft anymore because they are laughing at us.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Okay, firstly: This is an overall okay game with a great world, environments and (except for jittering faces) pristine graphics. But it could've been a LOT better and after 60hrs of play I can't feel but left disappointed by the lazy writing.

    Ubisoft, you wasted a lot of potential. You should have decided to either go full AC or keep that stuff out of a historical/mythical RPG. Either way, you would've earned a lot of money. It just doesn't mesh well.

    Note: I personally didn't like the "typical" previous AC games but that's just preference.

    Let me start off with the positive aspects:

    . Like I said, the environment is really stunning. The architecture, towns, landscape. The water animation is the best I've seen in games.
    . The richness and vastness of the world
    . Barnabas, Sokrates, Brasidas, Herodotus and Phoibe and Kassandra are standing out as personalities above all and carry the game experience for me as far as characters go
    . Some of the side quests are actually really interesting, especially the Mykonos storyline!

    Now...the negative aspects:

    . Above all, the main storyline. You set out to find your family which is interesting enough at the start, but once you find your mother, it's all about Deimos/Alexios. And let me tell you - he is a horribly designed protagonist and incredibly stupid. He is a willing, brainless puppet for the Cult (only talking about being "their strongest champion") and your mother is only concerned about getting him back.
    In the good ending, you do, after he wants to kill you he quickly changes his mind once he sees your spear. W-T-F. Were the creative directors high when they wrote that? This ending actually felt so terrible, overly cheesy, unbelievable and wrong.

    . The present day story breaks you out of the immersion at the worst timings, along with a heavily annoying and unlikeable character called Layla and her boring and stiff doctor friend. Ubisoft would've been better off making this a purely historical / mystical game a la Witcher and not lean it on AC. But I guess they didn't have the guts to deviate from their moneymaker.

    Once you find your "real father" as Kassandra (never gets explained how he possibly could be your father since he seems to stay in that cave since he found it, plothole alert) and Atlantis, it goes steeply downhill from there...the writing literally couldn't be worse. I was so disappointed from what I've got after I brought the artifacts back.

    . The grinding for resources and gold to upgrade your legendary gear constantly is reminding me of the grind of MMOs. I've been playing a lot of RPGs and MMOs as well and this is...just bad.

    . The level gap in between main story quests or Cult members literally forces you to do level grinding on the side, and a lot of it. The worst part of this is that it gets super repetitive, not like in the Witcher where side quests were a joy to do - apart from that, the level gaps were not that bad and it felt really fluent in other games. Or you go buy their "micro" transactions (which are super expensive), and even I ended up getting a gold boost because I was getting so annoyed at the constant upgrading costs. I'm okay with micro transactions if a game is great, but the cost along with the grind of resources and level gaps were too much for me to cut Ubisoft some slack.

    . The repetitive quests like clearing out forts, clearing bandit camps etc etc. You will get sick of it, believe me. It wouldn't have harmed to put mystical creatures earlier on in the game, since that was honestly the most fun and challenging part! (Sphinx & Co.)

    . You could make choices, but it didn't really seem to have a big impact overall. There was no way of really shaping your surroundings. There was a lot of violence in game - yet all romances were pretty boring and censored. The one on Mykonos was great as a story, but after you left and came back it was like nothing happened.

    So overall a 6.5, I just can't give in between ratings.
    This could've been an EPIC game with more effort; better writing and storytelling, more variety in combat/enemies, more characters that leave an impression (and a more likeable Layla if you want to keep her so bad), less of the present day nonsense - and cutting out a lot of the grinding and filler content. Shorter but sweeter is most of the time better.

    Although the game can be fun at times, especially when fighting multiple bounty hunters, raiding camps and big battles, the story is full of inconsistencies which is not helped by the abysmal voice acting of the protagonists and mediocre and sometimes exaggerated animations.
    By a simple comparison, this game makes Unity look like a million bucks.
    I would recommend waiting for a sale on this one.

    This game is not Assassins Creed, not in the terms we have come to expect. It instead seems to focus on a piece of Eden "very powerful weapon/tool" in the Assassins Creed universe, but makes no mention of Assassins or Templars. The series seems to be stepping more and more away from the genre that made it successful and into a full on RPG, which is fine. Except in order to make an RPG successful you need a great leveling system and an amazing story. Only problem is that every quest in the game is the same. Go to X and kill Y soldiers or go to Y and get X loot. It is repetitive to the extreme. The story is small and seems distant to all the repetitive quests. This game goes back to what made Black Flag so successful and that is the open seas and sea battles. That again seems distant and forced as it seems 90% of quests and story is on the main land.
    Do not get me started on the micro transactions. I spent $140 on the ultimate edition but am still trying to figure out what that bought me aside from the base game and some gear that is level 1 and is to expensive to upgrade unless you use real money to buy crafting materials. I have spent an additional $70 on maps, and boosters. Things that should have come with that $140 ultimate edition. Yes boosters are required in this game unless you want to spend hours getting one level past 25. Some people might say but leveling is part of an RPG. True it is... but not like this.

    This game is just Origins with a new coat of paint, but terrible story.

    This is the worst Assassins Creed game I have ever played and it hurts me to say that about my beloved series. The only reason it gets a 5 is because of the name Assassins Creed.

They covered their butts on that one. This title isn’t as detailed or anywhere near anything to do with Assassins creed beyond the play style and the artifact that is a pyramid and not an apple. Other than that you’re playing a AC version of the Witcher which has been described many times in other reviews. The skill system and quest system are severely lacking and overplayed. They make you now seek out your quest location on the map giving vague details to extend playtime because of you were guided you would finish in no time. Story is ok, cutscenes lack a bit and the graphics aren’t as great as you would expect. I’m playing the PC on dual1080ti at 4K 60FPS and it’s not like you would imagine it should be. The story is totally out of sync with history using women in battle and half of the mercenary that come for you are women. Umm in Ancient Greece and Rome women did not go to battle, they aren’t allowed even in the camp! How they came to this realization is beyond me and it’s quite annoying how bad Ubisoft has gone off the rails with this story. This editions feels like it’s a fast release to boost profit overlaying the Origins engine and tossing together quick missions that aren’t detailed and lackluster unlike Origins which had huge detailed side missions and took you places keeping you into the story. It’s just a grind fest for levels. Kill this animal bring back the pelts, get this herb bring it back to help. The one thing of note they introduced was tha ability to win over the NPC so you can take them to bed and have sex. Both Hetro and Homosexual encounters are featured depending how you wish to play. Beyond that they took the open map, shrunk it down and added tons of mountains to make it feel big but bottom line is it’s small really. Distances compared to origins are 1/4 from place to place versus ACO. So many other touch points I could go into. This game is a letdown as I feared it would be and I wish I wouldn’t ha r paid the $99.99 to play early. Would have waited had it not been overhyped all year. Ubisoft did it again and I predicted they would. They overplayed their hand and totally went off course from the creeds core story. It’s honestky got nothing to do with it. This is a story of a man who was cast out and now you’re on a mission to find out your lineage and get revenge. Beyond that this isn’t your regular Assasisins Creed. My advice, wait for a sale.

    Have you ever played a game and you have to question the choices the developers had to make in the development stage to get release product?
    The basic are, you're playing a character who is of Spartan decent. The game is centered around the Peloponnesian war; you know! the one with Hoplites, Spartans, Athenians, a few Persians, and a lot of SHIELD wall. The first thing that comes to mind

    The basic are, you're playing a character who is of Spartan decent. The game is centered around the Peloponnesian war; you know! the one with Hoplites, Spartans, Athenians, a few Persians, and a lot of SHIELD wall. The first thing that comes to mind is why the decided to remove shields from the game? The beginning of the game is pretty much the copy of the movie 300; a bunch of naked guys in spears and shields fighting on the Persian. As soon as the cutscene end, you start playing and your shield is gone? Why? why make the setting about Spartan, Shield wall if you remove that option for the player. Isn't that weird?

    You may think I'm petty, but I'm not. There is a reason why i bring up the shield issue first. So let start with the review. this game is badly optimized. I have a GTX1070, SSD, i5-8600, and 16 gb Ram. I get about 30-35 FPS (with occasional dips) playing at 1440p. The game has a big big problem with reloading if you die. If my character dies, I basically have to restart the game. I don't understand! It's the same engine with a few tweaks like previous game but it runs much worse

    The combat is weird. The previous title Assassin's Creed Origins (hence forth ACO), had shield, 2 handed weapons, dual wield dagger, swords, a few other weapons. Why does this game remove shield? Why does it remove 2 handed items? Why does this game standardize the weapon type and damage? A level 15 axe does the same damage as a lvl 15 dagger, spear, mace? There is no difference in damage, just the look of the combo. The previous game had more depth, even if it was a little. The game has another issues with hot boxes, you will have plenty of moment where you weapon is hitting an enemy, but it's not registering. There is NO block, you are expect to dodge, or parry. For the most part, you will be dodging backwards and doing a few hits; you will repeat this for the majority of the game. Why do you ask? Mostly because the enemy type don't change. When you have a simple combat as this game, you need to introduce enemies that fight differently, that require different approaches. Instead, even on the hardest difficulty, you will be doing the same 3 things in battle

    The story is...bland. It feels like the game a distant cousin of fallout series; horrible; bland, no emotions....BORING.

    The side contest is good; it's rivaling games like Witcher 3 but still need some work.

    Ultimately, the game feels grindy because they added level scaling, then made it very annoying to get certain upgrades without buying (with real money). You will never feel like you're strong because of the enemy leveling scaling. It feels like Ubisoft doesn't know what they want their game to be; they are clearing adding elements from other games, God of War 4, Witcher 3, previous games AC games. By doing this, they are adding element that don't quite work together.

    You can't have a game with so many weapon type but refusing you add some kind of niche to each use. They all feel the same. These types of stuff are all around the game; they drag it down. This game had the potential to be

    if you're itching to playing a game like this, i recommend playing Witcher 3. If you haven't played it, it's far superior in many ways. Otherwise, buy yourself the ACO or wait for this game to go on scale. At it's current state, it's a bad game, It's very shameful to see reviewers give this game a 9 and not even mention any problems with the game

And you can't exactly be like "Well, I don't feel like doing sidequests right now, I'll just focus on the main storyline" cuz your level will be too low. Of course, there is a way around this for 20 bucks which is an insult really. It also makes the replay value very low (in case you want to play with both characters) because it means you'll be forced to do all the sidequests all over again to keep your lvl up to par. I for one do not want to pay an extra 20 bucks. I am rather pissed off about this but what to do about it.

    Now, if the game was flawless I might enjoy it more. It's not. Immersion is kinda ruined rather often when you can't run up a staircase and you have to move like an inch to the right, when while running around in the world you suddenly freeze cuz the world has to load, when you shoot an arrow at someone and miss cuz the npc is bugged into a location and warps away when you should've hit him thus alarming half the camp. Once I had an enemy duplicate himself when I struck him. Climbing onto stuff doesn't work rather often. (again, moving to the left or right by an inch or two fixes it, but it's annoying) It's also annoying a bit to me that characters level up with you. If I have to quickly do something in an old area, it's not really quickly. I don't really understand why they removed the option to level up enemies like Origins had.

    Yeah, the world is big, but because of it it gets old fast. I don't see myself actually finishing this game, it's become a drag to play it, not a joy. If you like to grind and just explore get it, otherwise, stick with Origins.

    I've played up to level 3. It's almost exactly like Origins so far. Same houses, landscapes. Same type of missions. Same fighting style. Same leveling system. Haven't gotten to ships yet- hoping that's something different. So far, not impressed. Will update as I get further into the game. Not really an RPG.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Quantity does not beat quality, and in modern gaming striking the balance with both is essential. In a nutshell that is why AC Odyssey isn't that great. It is all quantity and average quality. Okay, let's dig in.

    Where this game excels: combat design (not execution, IMPORTANT), music (when it doesn't cut out), environment, and minimal intrusion from the boring Animus subplot. I absolutely love Origins but the combat was the worst part of the game. Here they improved it and the "class" trees are great. I like the ship combat but it gets repetitive, but it doesn't bug me like it does most people. Customizing ships was cool.

    They did an amazing job with ancient Greece. The music is superb, but it cuts out suddenly a lot. Way to drop the ball there Ubisoft.

    Where AC Odyssey showed signs of promise but fell short a bit: decision-making. Some decisions have lasting consequences, even decisions I thought weren't a huge deal. Other times you still have that illusion of choice, and you hope something ends up mattering but it does not. I wish it were more obvious which decisions could impact the future and which decisions are just fluff. Games do this. It's important.

    Where the game failed: BUGS, facial animations, BUGS, voice acting, BUGS, storytelling, oh did I mention BUGS? The bugs in this game are a disgrace. Why was this rushed to market in a year when it clearly needed a few more months of polish? I would be almost through a massive fort and some graphical glitch freezes my screen and drops the framerate to literally 1-2 fps. Game crashes, progress lost. WOW, HOW FUN THANKS UBISOFT

    Sometimes headshots will not register at all. The arrow won't even hit the target, despite them standing completely still. Abilities use adrenaline but aren't even performed. There is lag in the parrying mechanic, which is just pure dog doodie all the way.

    Riding a horse is once again clunky and I find myself running a long distance just so I don't have to put up with it. Why can't games do horse-riding well? Cot dayum...even The Witcher 3 failed on this level.

    The autosave system is utter trash, completely useless. The only reliable autosave is after a sync point or finishing a quest. Anything else is random. It forces you to manually save all the time. What is the point? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

    The facial animations are cringe-worthy and lines are so overused. Every. last. one. All in a day's work! Repeat this with literally endless quests. How immersive. Alexios' voice actor does not deserve another job in the industry, that was just awful. Did he phone it in? Bayek was fantastic. What a decline in quality.

    The story was contrived and boring. Let's pick the chosen one trope but have you be the not-chosen who hunts down your chosen one sibling and cures their hubris with love! What a tear jerker...*faaaart* Miss me with this half-baked garbage Ubisoft, do better.

    It's fun to explore ancient Greece, and the world is massive. Sokrates is hilarious. Most of the philosophers actually were pretty cool, but that shouldn't be the high point of the game (and it was).

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I like the game, but I think that the stealth not being a part of ASSASSIN's Creed, you know a game about assassins who sneak up on their prey and kill them quietly is kinda sad, but I do like the theme of Ancient Greece, though I wish it didn't become more the Witcher 3 in terms of mythology and RPG like level system, before, you saw a tough enemy? Fine just come up with a tactic and attack him, now everything's about levels. The animations unfortunately like most games nowadays are pretty horrendous, but overall it's a good game but not really an Assassin's Creed game Expand

    I haven't played the Assassins Creed series since Syndicate, and before that it was Brotherhood. So I've missed a few key entries.

    The easiest way to describe it is the lovechild of Witcher 3 and Shadow of War, skinned in Ancient Greece. Nothing more nothing less. The Witcher 3 Parts. The movement, boats, horses, and even the World map and its icons looks and feels a lot like
    I haven't played the Assassins Creed series since Syndicate, and before that it was Brotherhood. So I've missed a few key entries.

    The easiest way to describe it is the lovechild of Witcher 3 and Shadow of War, skinned in Ancient Greece. Nothing more nothing less.

    The Witcher 3 Parts.
    The movement, boats, horses, and even the World map and its icons looks and feels a lot like Witcher 3. which sadly Witcher 3 did successfully back in 2015. The only thing that Odyssey did better on that was having one BIG world map instead of separate loading zones and 2018 visuals to suit.

    The Shadow of War Parts.
    It has basically cloned the nemesis system from Shadow of War, without the actual nemesis. You have the strongholds, captains, recruits etc. Some of the character abilities, the teleport spear for example shows even more why its a clone.

    The Good
    it has chosen 2 very great games (especially Witcher) to clone, making it a perfect marriage of them. If you like them , you like this. Simple.

    The Neutral
    Don't expect an Assassins Creed game....The Stealth gameplay is watered down to favour the greater combat approach. Some may like this, may not, it adds more depth to the game overall. But don't expect to have that classic Stealth experience.

    its an RPG. something I personally liked, having more customisation and loot. But it feels shallow at times. Not as in depth as typical RPG'S on the loot front. I feel in the effort to become a fully fledged RPG and balanced the games, Ranged, Stealth and Combat play styles its become a sort of "Jack of all trades, master of none" game.

    The Bad
    its lost its uniqueness and originality of being an Assassins Creed game, It should of been it's own standalone Ubisoft IP.

    Overall 7/10
    As a video game its great, lots to see and do, and very pretty albeit a bit buggy in places (which could just be launch issues that will be fixed). But sadly it lacks what it was meant to be an assassins creed game.

Also, stupid sexual relationship that serve no purpose.

Решающим фактором для покупки будет являться сеттинг, как и во всех играх этой линейки, начиная с Black Flag. Попрошу заметить, что уже пять лет мы не видим номерную часть серии и от того требовать от очередного спин-офф'а прыгать выше головы - смешно. Вектор развития был задан ещё с "синдиката" и сейчас возможно достиг своего пика. Говорить: "Это не кредо убийцы", - глупо, ведь игрокам предлагают не выращивать цветы, а именно что убивать героем со своим кодексом чести.

    AC:Odyssey is boring and the more it tries to be a jack of all trades, the more it becomes clear that it's a master of none. I can't play this game for more than an hour because gameplay and quest design feels like a monotonous chore and the cut scenes and story are boring and uninspired.

    Disclaimer: I loved Origins, and I loved Black flag. I played the **** out of both of those. I played Odyssey for 20 hours before returning it to GameFly.

    Odyssey is a mix of the two, but made by a different studio. So it does feel subtly different. There is a massive load of activities to do, but they do feel a bit grindy, ESPECIALLY if you played Origins. If you did, this is so much more of the same as to feel redundant and kind of like a burdensome chore. If you didn’t, you’re in for a treat! Between the similar activities across both Origins & Odyssey, I’d say there’s about 50 hours of super fun immersion before it starts to feel repetitive. I played Origins for 80 hours, and only started to get that feeling around hour 65.

    Opinion on changes to Fighting:
    I don’t like how they switched the fighting to a more “dance-like” Witcher style, and the weapon ability wheel is a step back. Origins had cooler abilities that felt less gimmicky (no superhuman flashy color magic abilities). The main point of contention for me, is that I loved the cursed weapons in Origins. These allowed you to take 3x damage, but also deal 3x damage. So you could in essence play Origins ultra realistically, like Dark Souls, killing guys with a few hits of only super cool finishers, but still had to be sneaky and calculated. Odyssey is the opposite— enemies have huge health pools, and you get into pretty long fights spamming abilities and waiting for their cool downs. It’s a big step in the wrong direction for me personally, I’m all about realistic challenge (as a proxy I’m a huge fan of Nioh, Dark Souls, and The Last of Us on Survivor difficulty).

    Note on Grindiness:
    Some people say this game is much better if you pay for the XP boost, because if not you spend the majority of your time on the smaller side activities trying to level up. Origins was the opposite, more like the Witcher where it was easy to skip a lot of side content that might have been fun. I played all the Origins side content, taking the story super slow on purpose, and loved every bit. So I personally think you'd have fun without the XP boost, unless you did tons of similar side content already in Origins.

    Verdict:
    If you played Origins, you might want to rent this first or just pass. If you didn’t, and liked the Witcher 3, you’ll love this.

This generation of youngsters are incredibly low IQ. You must really be a sucker for graphics....Blows my mind!!! This open world standard needs to be killed AND KILLED NOW!!!

    If you played Shadow of Mordor and done fetch quests in Witcher 3, you've already played this game. It's not a horrible game but it's mediocre(with excellent graphics).

    I really wanted to enjoy playing this more than I ended up doing.... If ubisoft could have only trimmed off the unnecessary bloat, there would be a decent game to be found. Instead its all level gated away and spread oh-so-thinly over a vastly over-sized map filled with unnecessary fetch bloat.

    If the idea of spending 60+ hours in a game is not for you I recommend you save your time by skipping this and buying something else. Also AC origins achieves much of what this title seeks to at a FAR better level of quality with more respect for the players time (also is cheaper!).

    I don't know how this game has enjoyed so much praise. It feels nothing like Assassin's Creed, for one. More like The Witcher 3: Greek Edition, except it's made by Disney, and it sucks.

More like The Witcher 3: Greek Edition, except it's made by Disney, and it sucks. I say Disney because they throw historical accuracy and logic out the window in their quest to be inclusive. Whereas previous Assassin's Creed games have been slightly historically accurate, this game does not give a crap about how things actually were back then, which is immediately apparent when at the start of the game you're given the choice of playing a female warrior. Yeah, right.

    The unfortunate thing about this is Kassandra is voiced better than Alexios, whose acting is just terrible, so if you want the best experience you're going to have to choose the female. I wouldn't have as much of a problem with all the historical inaccuracies if the game were actually fun. It's not. It's an exhaustingly giant world full of boring things to do, dotted with quests that give you the illusion of choice, and bad level scaling that makes you feel like everything you're doing is pointless. Just hit level 16? Great! So did all your enemies. Don't you feel so accomplished?

    And then there's the animations, which are horrendous. Your attacks don't feel like they really connect, for one, and the kill animations are the worst of the series. Can't tell you how many times I laughed at the awful physics as bodies bounced off the floor during an assassination, or my spear didn't actually connect with a body during an impalement. There is nothing satisfying about the combat, and you'll do a ton of it.

    Also, there's no longer any thought to climbing, and you can climb any surface regardless of whether or not there's something to grab onto. Previous games would make buildings little mini challenges as you tried to figure out the best way to scale them. Now, you just point forward and shoot to the top like a god. There is no sense of believability at all. You are Spider-Man.

    I could go on and on. It's funny how this game was created by the same team as Syndicate, because that was my least favorite in the series up until now. I guess people in search of burning 100 hours of their life in the most mundane way possible will enjoy this, but I'd rather play The Witcher 3 again and enjoy actual quality content where choices matter and my immersion isn't destroyed every 5 seconds.

    I mean the map is MASSIVE. Its so much sidequests and stuff to explore it makes Skyrim a kiddie sandbox in comparison. Still, Skyrim was more varied missions. You face plenty of the "run-from-a-to-b fillers in Odyssey.
    The main story line is quite a few hours. If you wish to complete all sides, and activities, you lookin at 150 hours.
    The story is a bit boring. I ended up skipping cutscenes. I stayed for the scenery.

    If you recall in Origins, you hunted down some bad ass mercenarys to kill. They have changed and scaled up this time around. Many more dudes to slay.

    You also get to start on a huge side-quest later where you are to hunt down 30ish members of a cult. But first you have to find clues to reveal who they are behind their masks. When you have done that you can set out to take them down. This is a heavy and time consuming quest. Prepare.

    This game is basically a game to play when you are bored to **** by everything else. It does not give much new stuff, but fills your hours.
    Origins was brilliant because it was a redesign of the gameplay. And it was great since i love Egyptian mythology, Greek..err not that much. The story on Origins was also better.
    Black Flag fans should rejoice for this game as it brings back the ability to travel by ocean with ships freely now. Origins only had a couple of short segments with seafarer missions. As it now is Greece that has a great deal of islands around and naval battle was pivotal in the old greek times, it was only natural to bring back the warship again. You can upgrade and recruit folks for your vessel as you go. However, the combat gameplay on your boat is very scaled down compared to Black Flag.
    Still a "filler" game for me. Do not buy it expecting it to be a new take fresh on the franchise because it is clearly NOT.
    Microtransaction is like before, not a big deal. You don´t need any of it to complete it, so don't listen to what people say that this is a pay to win game. It is totally optional. Are you in a hurry to finish, buy, otherwise take your time with the game. If there is one thing Origins did well it was the joy and fun of exploring its vast land of the map. It does not lack any of it at all this time round.

    Pros:
    - Beautiful graphics and scenery. Well made map.
    - Will keep you occupied for days
    - Decent controls.
    - Fun with cult and mercenaries.

    Cons:
    - Gridning.
    - Side quests is repetitive in style.
    - Removes a few sneak functions to what made AC as it was.
    - Maybe a bit too large in size

The game still has the same intense action, narrative, visuals, and characters (Kassandra) as Origins, but suffers from too many systems pulling for your attention.

I would not go so far as to call this game not worthwhile, it is still a fun action adventure game, but I ended up muting it and listening to podcasts about 30 hrs in. As I stated, the bloat made everything seem pointless. Expand

    Good afternoon, gentlemen and ladies, today I expressed a desire to tell you that this game has no right to be called "Assassin's Creed", now I will try to explain it. (This is long review, you can lose time here)
    In this game, the concept of "brotherhood" is almost forgotten, there are no blades and especially hoods here, stealth has completely degraded, during the hidden murder our hero

    In this game, the concept of "brotherhood" is almost forgotten, there are no blades and especially hoods here, stealth has completely degraded, during the hidden murder our hero instead of graceful movements shoves an enema into the enemy, it's just ridiculous, I understand the indignation of fans of this series, which partly I am also.Ubisoft has a brand: Assassin's Creed, so they are trying to squeeze all the money out of it that can be deflated. The ancestor's DNA in the new part was “damaged”, because we can choose its gender, and also independently choose the development of its history, what I do not fully understand. Is the essence of the game not to KNOW the story of the ancestor, and not to change it? I think it will soon be possible to choose not only gender, but also race, gender, sexual orientation, isn't it? After all, everyone understands that you want this, come on.
    The combat mechanics have changed, and for the better, but still it is wooden, slow and inconvenient, and besides, it is not spectacular, have you really not seen the mechanics of Bloodborne or Dark Souls? God Of War, Spiderman after all. In terms of plot, I am ready to applaud the developers, thank you so much that the series has somehow moved a little. In the new part of the plot is not, we just play for a hero who is interested in this life only money, Clint Eastwood from the world of games. The game also has a large number of historical figures, the game is making attempts to enlighten you, descriptions of various architectural monuments, palaces and theaters have been added to the game. But from the changes I saw little of what was new, only the graphic component changes in the game, and this is great, the game is very beautiful in truth, the spirit and beauties of Ancient Greece are transmitted fantastically, I am pleased with it.

    I always appreciate a game where what you do, and what you say to people, have a impact in the game and I feel it have that in this game, now my biggest complain about this game is, IT DOES NOT FEEL LIKE, A ASSASSIN'S CREED GAME!!!! but after they chance the combat ,and it is not about templars vs assassins it is just sad, to call it assassin's creed.

    Odyssey is a good game. There is a big open world with a lot of things to do, with fun combat. It does everything that a sequel/prequel should do. Expand on the first game. Except that Odyssey has competely lost it´s identity. The game is set before the origins of the franchise. You don´t play as a assasin because there is no such thing. It has nothing to do with the war against templarsOdyssey is a good game. There is a big open world with a lot of things to do, with fun combat. It does everything that a sequel/prequel should do.

    A historia tbm é muito boa mas as vezes acontece uma coisa ou outra que tira a tensão do momento ou quando acabamos um das historias o final parece meio frouxo ou sem graça ( pelo menos o final q eu obtive com minhas escolhas no arco da família).

    Mas em um plano geral é um jogo que diverte bastante onde na minha opinião o maior problema do jogo todo que pode ate te deixar com raiva são os mercenários q ficam atrapalhando suas missões

    I'm surprised there are so many good reviews to AC Odyssey.

    The game is really beautiful, but the plot is again pretty poor. The main story, Odyssey, Cult, Artifacts - simple, easy to finish, no twists (cult leader was obvious from the middle of Athen's line) and so on. The game is cool to explore, but again additional quests except Socrates are boring. Sex? Poor and mostly just a

    The game is cool to explore, but again additional quests except Socrates are boring. Sex? Poor and mostly just a figure of speech. Types of quests are the same. I'm afraid after the first one Ubi couldn't make anything worth it except Black Flag because we all love pirates. But at least in this one you don't see that stupid sitting on the bench and "Where the hell is Assassin?"

    This game is great - for the first 5 hours. Once you leave the starting island of Kephallonia, you're introduced to an open world that absolutely suffocates you with mindless content that you are forced to grind through to progress, including the biggest offender of fetch quest padding I've seen in an RPG.

Once you leave the starting island of Kephallonia, you're introduced to an open world that absolutely suffocates you with mindless content that you are forced to grind through to progress, including the biggest offender of fetch quest padding I've seen in an RPG. The narrative is completely obliterated by the pacing due to this and in general the lore approach to this game is extremely weird and none of it feels like Assassin's Creed at all. I recommend this game at a very low price, probably under $20 if you want to run around a really gorgeous world and engage with mindless, mediocre content. But it's safe to say this is a very disappointing game and I have no hopes of Assassin's Creed getting any better in the future. What a shame. Collapse

    I cared more for these characters and the world than I ever did in previous Assassin’s Creed games, and I think that’s part of why this reboot is so successful. Playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey left me feeling valiant and triumphant as I worked my way up the cultist food chain, and and I was always excited to see what Kassandra was off to discover next.

    If someone had told me couple of years ago that Assassin’s Creed would become a full-fledged action RPG that would not look out of place on a shelf next to The Witcher 3, I would have snickered. But here I am, over 80 hours into Odyssey and still unable to believe that really happened. [12/2018, p.44]

    It also commits a few of the same sins: in particular, the deluge of gar drops feels vaguely insulting, conditioning the player to lust after items exclusive to the in-game store. It's lifted, however, by the relative wit and intelligence of its quest design, and the delicate notes of uncertainty and curiosity introduced by Exploration mode. [Christmas 2018, p.108]
