    A truly MASSIVE world to explore (Or be guided through, your choice) I never felt like I was grinding. Want a break from the great story, go do some bounties, daily quests, pirating, hunting, region quests to access and unlock the mass battle mode between Spartans and Athenians for that region.

    Choose between 3 different path, Hunter, Warrior or Assassin or dive a little in all of them from the start and gear up for your favorite play style. Odyssey really made me feel like I was part of the world and bonus, very little Assassin vs Templar **** well, on the surface. Great GREAT fun for fans of Action RPGS and Open Worlds.

    The Micro-transaction in this game are purely cosmetic or for those of you that want to save time. The dumbness off the people I see saying the game forces them on you and is overly grindy is astonishing to me. These are the same people who have no issue buying paid DLC or extra money for a collectors edition, both of which put content behind a paywall that you have to pay more money for. But they put an additional costume for sale in the game that you can CHOOSE not to buy and does not affect the gameplay at all and the pitchforks come out.

    I want to rate this game as a game on its own, independently from its franchise. As someone who has played every Assassin's Creed game from start to finish, it was certainly disappointing to find that Ubisoft all but abandoned the themes introduced in the earlier titles. However, the hidden blade WILL be making a return (via DLC unfortunately, but hey) so that's enough to satiate me... forI want to rate this game as a game on its own, independently from its franchise.

However, the hidden blade WILL be making a return (via DLC unfortunately, but hey) so that's enough to satiate me... for hardcore fans however I understand where the complaints come from.

    All of that being said, I think rating this game poorly solely due to the aforementioned reasons doesn't give its creators justice. It's truly a sprawling, MASSIVE world filled with caves, quests and all around gorgeous scenery.
    The combat is a step up from Origins, and isn't quite as easy as you would think (at least before level 15), with new active skills to make combat interesting and varied as well as smarter AI.
    The soundtrack is also one of my favorites to come out of the series, giving me very strong "The Witcher" vibes (which is a good thing).

    If you're a fan of masterfully crafted open world RPG's then this game is a MUST BUY. It truly has it all, bringing the best of all games as well as introducing far more player impact and customization. The only reason I have to dock it a point is because I can't consciously give it a ten when it is a single player game with microtransactions. While they don't intrude on the game, I think there is a place for them and it isn't in this genre.

    Cop it. 9/10

    Dont listen to bad reviews, just dont. A lot of them sat that the game is AC Origins clone, its not, the combat is different, and a lot of them as well. But its a lot like AC Origins but better, thats how it is, every game in the series had little changes to them, every new game in AС serie was a lot like the one before, but a little bit better, some people dislike it and idk why, what doDont listen to bad reviews, just dont.

But its a lot like AC Origins but better, thats how it is, every game in the series had little changes to them, every new game in AС serie was a lot like the one before, but a little bit better, some people dislike it and idk why, what do they expect, absolultely different thing from before is immpossible in a serie or a genre, it never is and never will be, thats how it is, every game in a genre is a lot like others with some differences, thats how games works, and AС is no exception, that doesnt mean that is the same thing, its a different one, just a lot like the other. For example meat is meat, but there is a lot of different meat, even different types of cooking, and with each type there is different taste, same here, its a lot like other AC games, a lot like AC Origins, but its different.
    So enough about that and lets talk about the battle system, thats absolutly personal preference if its not just actually unplayable for most of people, and its not then its not supposed to count like Optimization for example, there is people who dislike and there is people who like it, doesnt mean its bad, i think its actually amazing, its a lot like AС Unity and AC Origins combined and its really, really hard, at least on the hardest difficulty lvl set, like REALLY hard, not forgiving to anything and anyone, in some occasions maybe to much. The animations looks smooth and good idk what people are whining about. If they are just bad, i guess they blame the animations or anything else =/
    What i have to say is the optimisation seems actually worse than the last game, the graphics seems nicer tho, so everything looks better but with less FPS but i guess thats what happens, when there is a giant forest instead of a desert =/
    The story seems nice to me, thought not the most interesting (at least to me), but its stil enjoyable and fun, its just not INSANE, but maybe it will be better later, still have a lot to go (only 13 hours played) , so maybe its just the start that doesnt look that impressive. But what is actually worth mentioning and a lot of people can be mad about it: there is NO assassins in this game, its logical, cause the assassins came a few hundred years after this game sets, but i think and i guess we can see the start of the Templars, but again, there is no assassins. Which honestly shoudve been told really clearly, cause i for example started playing this games only because i was playing as a stealthy assassin, but even without them i think the game is just really really good, its been really fun to play, in a lot of ways more than any AC game before, specially because of the fighting system and like i said everything overall seems good to me.
    So dont listen to the haters and try it for yourself, because the game is actually good, but you need to remember, that you have to get a really good pc for it, or the game wont be to enjoyable to play, cause the lvl of optimisation is pretty mediocre =/

    Would you prefer something completely new? I’m accustomed to origins playstyle so it is a relief that I’m not forced to learn a new playstyle all over again.
    It was known and reported from the first time that the game would feel and play like origins, it’s on the same engine afterall but trust me it is a far more good-looking game.
    The missions and all side activities are just like you remember from origins which is fine by me because i loved how you had camps, fortresses, treasure hunting etc, we still have a ton of stuff to do in Odyssey.
    I have the impression that the graphics have been slightly downgraded compared to the reveal gameplay, but they are still amazing a pure eye candy and the performance on the PS4 PRO is perfect.
    You do hear the fan from time to time along with noise coming from the ps4 but that’s absolutely normal and understandable for a game of that scale and demanding.
    The game is much harder than origins which is something i already knew but i thought it would probably be an exaggeration but no, the game is harder even on normal and that makes all fights intense, interesting and demanding believe me you will feel like a true spartan hero.
    The problems are minor and not worth reporting i am sure all of them will be addressed shortly in future updates.

    The game is outstanding, grab your helmets and embark on your own odysseys.

    This is the best Assassin Creed game to date. But on top of that, this game is on the fore front of open world games to come. Picking up some great features from other games and genres. Things like dialog options, consequences, the Mercenary system, enhanced combat system. Excited about the direction of the franchise. One that I have play nearly every game since AC 1.

    Malaka!! What an odyssey! It took me 105hrs to complete this journey on Hard difficulty.

    With Ubisoft games, expect a lot of repetition in gameplay, systems and mission structure. What sold me is the setting. I was absolutely into Greek mythology as a kid in the 90s and have watched so many Greek movies growing up (Jason and the Argonauts, Hercules, Xena, Troy, 300, stop-motion skeletons). AC:Odyssey was like a childhood dream come to life! I was so enthralled by the sights and sounds, the whole Greek world, the legendary creatures, the historical figures, the monuments, everything! Also, Greece is such a wonderful and beautiful world to explore for me as I love the hills, mountains, ocean, beaches and green locations.

    The last AC I played, Origins, was bland to me cos I was never a fan or Egyptian mythology and setting. So the constant sand and desert areas were very dull and uninteresting for me, dampening my motivation to explore. Ended up rushing through the main story in about 30hrs.

    Odyssey on the other hand was a journey I enjoyed from start to end. The main story is also very well developed and engaging. I played as Kassandra and she is a much much better protagonist than Bayek. I loved all the side characters and some side missions made me genuinely laugh out loud.

    The RPG mechanics introduced are much better here than in Origins, although I hope it can be more like Skyrim or Witcher levels of detail in the future. I liked the dialogue choices and consequences introduced, but it could be developed even deeper.

    I loved the legendary weapons and armor sets, with all the unique skills that come with it. It's definitely a fun game to play.

    I took one point off for not having a deep lore/history system. I would like to have a Codex entry giving detailed history of Greece's locations, characters, weapons, culture, people, etc. That would have helped players who enjoy reading codex entries more appreciation for the main plot and the world in general, like in Witcher, Skyrim, Mass Effect, Dragon Age. Also, I thought there would be a Discovery Tour like in Origins but to my disappointment, there isn't.

    Overall, I absolutely loved Odyssey. Brilliant game by Ubisoft and that was something I did not expect. Ubisoft games, I now realize, are about the world setting. If you're into it, you'll definitely have a blast. So it was for me in Wildlands ( loved Netflix's Narcos) and Odyssey (loved Greek mythology) and AC2 (loved Gladiator, HBO's Rome).

    Absolutely play this if you're a fan of Greek culture.

    Of course, there is artistic liberty, like flaming swords, but there are a lot of details that are correct when it comes to the columns, the buildings, the weapons. Also the NPCs whose behaviour is in line with their actual behaviour (or attributed behaviour).

    The game itself is a bit lengthy at times but I didn't have any issues in general with keeping up level by doing the entertaining side quests. Each location that I visited was full of new and nice surprises. Highlights were ancient Athens, the Minoan palaces, the rugged landscape around Sparta.

    All in all scenery and setting and story are great in my opinion, some of the fights and quests are a bit lengthy and the controls could be improved somewhat.

    I enjoyed the Hades out of this game, illustrated by the fact that I finally finished the main story arc after playing it for 120 hours (almost 40 hours longer than it took me to complete Origins).

    Odyssey is visually stunning and the transitions from city to sea to country to cave really helps immerse you in the world of Ancient Greece.

    The mechanics are familiar from Origins; they didn't try to re-invent the wheel here. It is more combat intensive, making it less "assassin-y" than any of its predecessors, but when you open the game fighting the Battle of Thermopylae as Leonidas, you quickly learn to look past that.

    The controls themselves can be a little muddy at times...and it seems especially in tight scrapes. You want to get some distance between yourself and, say, three bounty hunters, but instead of leaping over a fence, you just jump on top of it (yeah, that happened more than once).

    The story itself is well-plotted, and in the AC tradition, it cleverly involves several well-known historical figures into the narrative (Sokrates, Hippokrates, Perikles, Leonidas, and others). Your adventures pit you against Greek mythology's greatest monsters AND against a creepy secret society, and it's done in a satisfying (though overly long) way.

    I cannot emphasize enough the importance of choosing Kassandra as your hero at the beginning. The game's cover, etc, seems to point to Alexios as the player you're supposed to be, but no. While it doesn't actually matter (more on that in a moment), Melissanthi Mahut's voice work for Kassandra is immeasurably better and nuanced than Michael Antonakos's WAAAAY over-acted Alexios. The modern-day story component is almost useless anymore, and I think Ubisoft realizes it made a huge mistake with how they handled the Desmond storyline at the end of "AC III." But, you have to have an animus, so Layla Hassan returns to climb a couple of walls and check a few e-mails.

    It's very easy to stop playing the main narrative and get lost in side quests (I love side-questing). I had nearly reached level 45 when I realized that I had a ton more of the actual STORY to play. It was at that moment where I realized that you can side quest forever in this game. There is no "cleaning up." There will always be more.

    That's where I'll gripe a bit about the game. It IS too long. It's certainly a full world, but between endless mercenaries with awful, computer-generated nicknames (who are the most difficult enemies in the game, BTW - I was killed by mercenaries far more than any other foe), 15-minute fights against "legendary beasts" (a trope they didn't have to carry over from Origins - it's just a copy of those ridiculous elephant fights), silly side quests that almost always involve killing bandits or animals (you are a mercenary - or misthios - after all), and sinking ships on the Aegean Sea, Odyssey can be a quite "grindy" at times.

    Also, outside of Kassandra (Sokrates and Myrinne are particularly good, also) the voice work is sub-average to poor. Many of the Greek accents seemed forced ("Hyow kyan I hyelp you?") and characters frequently emphasize the wrong words. Was no one in studio coaching them? Gah!

    The engraving system doesn't really add too much to the game. Sure, it's nice to acquire a perk that lets you use less adrenaline to perform a special move or to increase your damage against animals (refer to legendary animals above), but I feel like something better could have been done there...not sure what, though.

    I did NOT like that when went to play the game again, this time as Alexios, that all that happened was the programmers just dropped Alexios' avatar in the exact place where Kassandra's had been on my previous play-through. I think this game could have been something truly special had they found a way for you to play the game from one character's point of view, siding primarily with Sparta, and then from the other's POV fighting primarily for Athens. Interchanging the avatars really cheapened the story.

    Finally, that malakas farting pig...

    Anyway, this game is, overall, great escapism and I hope that whatever Ubi's doing next for the series ties what we've seen here into what becomes the Assassins and Templars. And also which Assassin mated with which eagle to create offspring that allow humans to have eagle vision... OK, maybe I don't want to see that...

When I saw the game is set in ancient Greece, I knew I have to buy it, been waiting for a game like that very long. There were a lot of disscusions if this is still an AC game. Obviously its not but I do not understand, how this is a bad thing? We had this year a new God of War game, where you could ask the same question, was this still the GoW we knew, who cares, it was so good it probably will become GOTY.

    While Odyssey is not a candidate for GOTY, it is still a damn fine game. Clearly the devs were inspired by The Witcher 3 and its approach for different options during conversations where depending on your choice, quests will play very different. There is a heavy focus on RPG mechanics, you'll travel a lot in beautiful Greece, fight many enemies, trade your items and collect epic or legendary gear while gaining XP and built your skill tree. You can focus on becoming an archer, warrior or assassin, or you'll chose the best of three worlds, just like me.

    You will travel a lot with your ship and let me say one thing: wow... the water looks gorgeous. While traveling, your crew will always sing a nice Greek shanty. The controls feel great altough its definitely far away from beeing a ship simulator. The battles are epic, I love how everyone is shouting and before entering a ship, your crew is stamping on the ground and they bash their spears against their shields. If there is a storm at night, the atmosphere is even more tense!

    The story keeps you hooked as, typical for these times, there is a lot going on about revenge and betrayal. You can either choose to play as a male of female though Alexios looks kinda boring compared to Cassandra. He lacks the charisma that Cassandra has.

    Along the story you'll discover new features of the game such as the bountyhunters which works kinda like the wanted level in GTA. If you'll mess around to much (murdering, stealing... ) they will search for you which adds this nice dynamic gameplay mechanic where you're in the middle of a battle when suddenly one or more bountyhunter appear.

    Also, since this plays during the war between Athen and Sparta, you'll join one side during these big battles where you slaughter the enemies army.

    The microtransactions are optional, you'll never need them if you keep gaining XP trough sidequests.

    Typical for a Ubisoft game like that, there can be bugs here and there like strange behaving NPCs/ enemies and glitches with the animations, which also can look a little bit awkward during cutscenes.

    Naturaly this game can feel "grindy" as other open world games by Ubisoft did. But this feeling fades if you immerse yourself in the gorgeous landscape of Greece alongside a very nice soundtrack.

    Its sad to see how people here judge this game without even playing it. Just because there are microtransactions which nobody really needs to buy. Also I've seen people mentioning "SJW".... seriously? Those people cant be older than 12....

    I cannot understand the bad reviews for this game, it is much better than Origins in almost every aspect. It mixes it up with Ship play and combat, the maps bigger, there's more stuff to do, the levelling system is better, there's a mercenary system, there's more loot. In general it's just a better game than Origins but gets worse reviews.

    The next thing I really love is the quite substantial combat difficulty/proficiency curve. At the start of the game, I died. And died. And died. And ran away and hid from rival mercenaries. The game forces you to get gud. And as you settle into the controls, level up, and unlock more special moves, you start kicking more and more ass. It feels way more substantial than older AC combat, and is way more engaging for it. And, dare I say, realistic. Like it really would be preferable to sneak stab everyone, and when you slip up and all the bad guys come running, there's a palpable sense of **** this is going to be hard work getting out of this."
    As for the story, I'm finding it fairly compelling so far, with some satisfying twists generating just enough intrigue to drive the whole thing forward. Plots and subplots tie in pretty well to some of the activities, and there's always something different to do.
    I mean I really can't ask for more in an AC game. I don't understand the low scores here, but Ubisoft should be proud that they now have a fanbase just as passionate as that other great fantasy franchise, Star Wars. With that comes the crowd that you will never please, because things can never be how they were. Time doesn't stand still, and for the majority of us, that's a huge relief. Fantastic effort, Ubisoft.

The game gives you tons of rewards for defeating mercenaries, cultists, as well as the tons of exploration options. I'm sitting with 7 or 8 pieces of legendary gear in my inventory - and the game allows you to upgrade those good items so you can keep the gear you like the look of, you definitely don't need to put in your credit card to enjoy this game. That is a very over dramatic statement and people are over reacting. I feel like the people who are complaining about the game "shoving micro transactions in your face" are just not the sharpest tools in the shed and keep hitting the store button.

    I'm playing the game on a 4k UHD TV/PS4 Pro and the game is absolutely stunning. There are a few wonky moments but when compared to a game like Fallout 4, the graphics have made leaps and bounds in just three years. The naval combat is fun as well. I'm about 20 hours in and not very far in the story because the game is so rich in exploration and side missions that are interesting. There is a lot to do in this game.

I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE OVERARCHING PLOT. the Animus was a cool sifi twist to the FIRST game, but after that i found that part of the games annoying and world breaking, the boiled unflavored veggies that came with a great steak dinner. i love and applaud the minimal use of it so far in this and origins. people say that Ubisoft sticks to a formula and i can't really argue that , but its a fun loop and it works, i mean how much has Halo really changed in 20 years (it hasn't). Ubisoft has done a great job of taking what works across their games and putting the into play here, for example, i love the option to limit the map notifications and makers, much like in farcry 5, this really adds to the immersion and feeling of exploration. Ultimately, here is the thing, i'm having FUN playing this game. reading through the negative reviews, all i see is people who don't want to like this game. this builds of what was great in Origins, if you enjoyed that game i'd wager you'ed like this one too.

    I've played about 25 hours so-far and never really felt like I was being hindered by the lack of EXP/Drachme boosts, maybe that will feel worse later but we'll see. So-far though the microtransactions feel completely optional.

    In Origins I felt like the RPG mechanics were really hamfisted, I didn't like them at all. However in Odyssey they've really refined them to make them feel like a more natural part of the game. The eagle-bearer may well be one of the best written protagonists since Ezio, Kassandra especially is just exceptionally well written. She doesn't fall into any of the tropes that make a female protagonist feel forced, she feels completely human.

    The choice system they put in doesn't seem frivolous either, there's one section early in the game that seems inconspicuous but can end up having a big effect on an an entire town. The game is **** chok full of little bits of detail as well, things you probably wouldn't even think of. IE the allies of the people you kill in the streets or whatever can be seen disposing of the dead, a town that can get sick because of your actions goes from healthy to morbidly sick, fatigued and vomiting to dead. It's great.

    My only issue is that it doesn't feel like it has much connection to the franchise as a whole, but the game is honestly so much fun I don't really care.

    So the only issues I really have is the abundance of microtransactions and the lack of a real connection to the franchise as a whole outside of the meta-story. Other than that, the game is fantastic and frankly all these hyper negative reviews are over-exaggerating like hell.

    I am not a fan of playing as female characters in games, but I have fallen in love with Kassandra. I really like her as a character. The combat is great as well and very fun, far better than it is in RDR2! Ubisoft have really hit the nail on the head with this game. Barring the odd glitch, it is perfect.

    There is genuinely a lot of content and hours upon hours of gameplay built into the game. Easily the biggest game I have ever played. I have spent over 130 hours on Odyssey and I still have about 40% of the map left to explore, and I still haven't finished the main story/campaign yet either. I reckon it will take 200 hours to complete everything. There's just so much stuff. Tonnes of weapon, armour and customisations as well, so it is really, really in-depth.

    I don't see how people can complain about it taking ages to level up, as I have already hit level 50 and I still have loads of the game left to do. If anything I have levelled up too quickly. Ultimately it is because of the size of the game and the amount of content that it takes so long. Some people don't want to put in the hours and want a quick fix to complete the game and unlock everything.

    Either way, Ubisoft can't win - if the game is too small, or short, with little content, people will complain. When it is huge and packed with content and takes ages to complete, people still complain. I actually feel the need to defend Ubisoft here. At least we've been given that content and hours upon hours of gameplay. I would take that over a small game with hardly any content, every time. I guess there's no pleasing some people.

    Well done Ubisoft! Origins and Odyssey are both in my top 3 games of all time...

    Be aware there is a forced enemy level scaling that you cannot turn off unlike you had the option in Origins.
    Sometime, especially if you are surrounded my many enemies it's better to run away and hide and try again.

    Every microtransaction is also avalaible for free through the ingame orichalum. Tho it is a lot of griending and luck needed to get the rare stuff from the shop.

    I get the feeling that many negative reviews are from oldschool AC gamers that can't or wont adapt to the new gamestyle. I've played AC 1,2, Black Flag, Rogue and Origins so far.

    The romance options are more of a fling rathe rthan a serious approach like we are used from the Mass Effect series. But this is Ubi's first approach and with enough feedback they might be doing better in the next game.

    Also the Dev's take in a lot of feedback from the gamer community and this is awesome.

    There are still a few bugs (patch 1.06) , especially a very annoying one when enemies are set on fire in a big fort the games framerate sinks down to almost 1.

    I myself have not encountered any huge bug on PS4 except the before mentione framrate loss.

    So in conclusion this game is worth it's money and has imo a lot of replay value. Imma getting this game for PC too when all DLC's are out next year.

When I had finished the game I even went back and did side missions just so I could see more of her. It is worth noting that Alexios is also an option but doesn't seem as well realised and lacks some of Kassandra's charm.

    The game took me around 65 hrs to complete the multiple story threads (Family, Cult, Mercenaries and Atlantis) and I reached max level just before taking on the last cult members. I did not use any boosters and the microtransactions did not encroach on my enjoyment of the game at all. If you are willing to do a few side missions and want to finish the story you will have no problem avoiding paying for any boosters or gear.

    Overall Odyssey is Origins in another setting and with a few new systems and improvements but It surprised me how much I ended up enjoying it.

Yes naval battles are back and they are super similar to Black Flag's mechanics. Boarding works the same, shooting works the same, although its arrows instead of cannons, and upgrading your ship has a game play loop to it that is really satisfying. You can even customize the look. The biggest change to the Ship mechanic would be the Lieutenants. Lieutenants add perks to the ship like plus damage, or plus armor, etc. They also have uses when boarding a ship. They fight right alongside you. Like gear these Lieutenants range from common to legendary status. Speaking of gear. If you were like me and wished Origins had armor that wasn't just cosmetic, or wanted a change from the status quo upgrading the same armor you have the entire game then Odyssey is your jam. Now armor pieces consist of 5 types. Head, chest, legs, arms, and waist. Each piece has their perks and range from common, to legendary. Weapons are still the same from Origins. Sword, double swords, staffs, maces, axes, spears, etc. However bows have changed and work nothing like origins. Now you only carry one at all times and upgrade perks to make it do stuff like the predator bow did when you followed a shot to the target. Or shoot 4 arrows out of time with the Multiple shot perk. And you can FINALLY craft arrows. That was a much welcome change for me. Listen, Odyssey deserves a chance. If you are one of those people saying "this isn't an Assassin's Creed game!" Ok then it's not now play it it is still good enough to warrant your time and money. The value alone is exemplary. Giving you tons more hours of play than any previous AC games. All I am asking is that you keep an open mind, and before you completely write this game off just try it. You might be pleasantly surprised. My one and only gripe is the heavy push at micro-transactions. You will get to a point where you have to grind for hours to get to the level whatever the Next story mission is at, and it's quite clear what Ubisolft's intentions are. To get you to purchase Helix credits so that you can get XP boosters, better gear, etc. It isn't all bad though. This kinda forced me to explore the world looking for locations to complete, and I ended up getting WAY better gear for doing so. It just throws the pacing off quite heavily. Ok, ok I'm done now. Just try it before ya criticize it. Expand

The micro transactions are a bit troubling yes, hence an 8/10, but they are not completely invasive. You can play this game without it and be perfectly fine. If your an achievement hunter, mmo player, and/or looking for something to get lost in for a while, this game will not disappoint you.

First off, it's vary rare that any AC game will ever deserve below a 6.5 score and most of that has to do with bugs or the fan base feeling as if the game has fallen away from form. However, this game doesn't deserve those types of scores no matter how you view it. The RPG elements are enjoyable, The combat has improved from Origins, the new Exploration mode makes me want to invest more time into travelling throughout the world when normally I would just want to just follow the quest guidelines. Overall, no, this doesn't feel like a true Assassins Creed game but it is very enjoyable. I'm hoping after these next two years off UBI takes the best of what we loved at the beginning of the series and combines it with the new RPG elements. It takes away that slight linear feeling the original games had. I do miss the overall style of the original games in gear design. I haven't felt like an Assassin since the EZIO series and I wish we could bring that feeling back. Overall I'm enjoying this game about 20hrs in. The story is more enjoyable than Origins, slight frame rate drops can occur and some of the NPC voicing is laughable but this game deserves a solid 7.5/8 score overall. Expand

The timed mini-quests & bounties can be repetitive and are very simple (sometimes I've had quite literally the exact same mini-quest dialogue from different NPCs) but there are plenty of actual side quests which are generally interesting, and so far I've found no issues with levelling...and absolutely no grind has been required in my own experience. For reference, I'm relatively new to the series...played the original AC when it came out, but wasn't keen on the mechanics and gave up a few hours in...Origins was my first real AC game that I experienced in full.

Odyssey is a well made game..yes it is open world and yes it has strong RPG elements. Yes it borrows from the Witcher 3 and Shadow of Mordor/War however it stands on its own as a very good game that is fun to play. I have now played Odyssey for more than 57 hours on Nightmare thus far, and I am still enjoying myself very much. Odyssey takes place in the Assassin's Creed universe but prior to the formation of the Assassin Order. Change is not always good but neither is change always bad. Having said that, Odyssey is not a bad game nor is it a great game however it is a very good game. If you don't like open world or you don't like RPG games and/or you want a carbon copy of the earlier Assassin's Creed games then Odyssey will most likely not be for you, but don't be childish and deliberately under rate it because it is not the "Assassin's Creed" game you wanted. There will be a lot of people who liked the earlier Assassin's Creed games, such as myself, who will also like Odyssey just as a lot of people who didn't like the earlier Assassin's Creed games may like Odyssey because of the changes. I could understand a 5 or 6 rating from the Assassin's Creed fans who wanted a carbon copy (even though I don't agree with such a low rating) however anything less than 5 is just asinine. What I am is saying is I understand Odyssey will not be for everyone. The same can be said for pretty much every game. Even my beloved The Last of Us is not going to affect every gamer the way it did me and many other gamers too!!! Just be fair in your ratings people...otherwise you make the gaming community look pathetic. This last comment is also directed at Fan boys who deliberately under rate exclusives from systems they don't own. BTW I also hate micro transactions and have never purchased them...but unlike what some people claim, it is not necessary to purchase them to enjoy Odyssey. Odyssey is not as "grindy" as some people claim but it is a RPG so if you don't like RPGs then you probably won't like Odyssey. Don't whine about it...just play a different game that is more like what you want and like. We all knew (or ought to have known) via the internet what type of game Odyssey was going to be...you could have cancelled your pre-order, so stop being butt hurt. This is my opinion and if I hurt the feelings of any of you who deliberately under rated Odyssey than you prove my point that you are immature and childish. You are entitled to your opinions about Odyssey too however if you are honest with yourselves you would admit Odyssey doesn't deserve a rating less than 5. I love gaming and I love the vast variety of games being created for our enjoyment. Happy gaming everybody and I hope you realize we are in a golden age of gaming. Expand

    This is a game that takes away the usually design type of AC games and allows you to tackle any quest the way you feel. It may not feel like an AC game, but your combat style can change that. You can become the Assassin you want to be rather than what the story makes it. Side quest are great and combat is finally challenging. Overall this game deserves attention and its mark in the series!

    Alexios' acting and facial expressions are really stiff. The writing is questionable. I like the RPG options and the romance options, giving the LGBTQ community the space it surely needs in gaming,
    HAVING SAID THAT, the should have done it more tastefully, some of this rare ocassions seem really creepy.

    Scenery is nice, yet TOO SAMEY. Gears are nice. The fighting system is really difficult to master for a casual gamer. The grinding here is INSANE to level up. It's an OPEN WORLD, yet not quite. Because you could be minding your own business out and about and plan to make your way to some fort just to arrive there and find that they're 20+ levels above you.

    So far, it's a nice game. Unless it turns really bad towards the end. I haven't beaten it yet, it's really THAT big.
    So big, it can TOTALLY become overwhelming and tedious to some. It happened to me, but since I spent 100 dollars, I forced myself to power through it.

    Proceed with caution, but don't believe of the hype nor the hate.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the latest instalment in the long Ubisoft's flagship franshise and it's the biggest one yet, set in ancient greece it's an ambitious game that tries to improve on everything last year's Origins did, but can he do it?
    Odyssey it's an full on Action-RPG with hundreds of weapons and armor pieces to equip and costumize your character with, you level up by doing pretty much anything in the game, from side quests to locations scatered around the map and obviously the main story, combat is very similar to Origins but this time you have different combat skills you can equip to give you an edge during combat, i've never had a problem with the level gaps that everyone seems to complain about, and I never felt like I was forced to level up to progress the story, just casually playing through doing main and side content as I pleased felt rewarding, challenging on some parts, but never unfair.
    The story is one of the best in the series, and despite the game being set before Assassin's or Templars wore even a thing "it's set more than 300 year's before Origins" it's since Black Flag, the game that takes it's role in the series more seriously, and is very important to the overall arc of the story.
    The main issue lies with Odysseys biggest selling point, this game is BIG, really big, perhaps too big, and this growing trend of developers adding more and more stuff to their games without much care for the quality of the overall experience hurts the game more than it helps, it's a game that would benefit if it took out around 50 hours of it's content, don't get me wrong, there is a lot of amazing side quests to find, another improvemet from Origins, and does encourage exploration of it's massive world, but for all this improvements over Origins, the exaggerated amount of content keeps Odyssey from it's true potential.
    After 155 hours I finally did it all and seen it all in Odyssey, it's a massive and surprisingly polished game, that has your money's worth, don't go expeting the game to keep it's consistent high quality trough all of it's content, It's an extremely solid and fun RPG, that it's buried under too much pointless stuff, but it's ultimately an Odyssey that I'm happy I took

    I was wrong in most of my assumptions. The game certainly does borrow 1 or 2 things from origins however instead of ruining proven features, it instead builds on them taking the franchise to new heights.

    I dont know why people are complaining about the animations, i have found them to be very very fluid and the combat system has been refined. The quests are great and the RPG elements really do not diminish the game in anyway rather they enhance it.

    Furthermore the mercenary system draws heavily from the nemesis system from Shadow of War and makes for some truly unique gameplay experiences.

    Please do not listen to the naysayers, they are simply angry that the franchise is taking a path different to what it has been stuck on for the past 11 years. The game has progressed and there is nothing stopping you from being an assassin.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As with Origins, this years creed installment is a welcome change. The RPG elements are what this game needed to feel fresh, the combat was much improved on the last game (still room for improvement). The narrative was solid, the high seas ship battles are welcomed in their return and the mini nemesis system for the mercenary’s was also pretty cool.

    What isn’t great is the game world is big. The issue with this is sometimes the areas feel they are big just to be big, there is nothing to fill those areas with interesting things to find. A good chunk of side quests were very fetch like, this isn’t a problem if during that quest it guides you to a more substantial find (think Skyrim and the Witcher 3). Speaking of fetch quests I am starting to hate the old get something for me and bring it back, I am hoping in the near future these type of “filler” quests will be revolutionised somehow, most of the things you fetched in this game Ikaros could have flown it back for you, rather then sit through a load screen or ride all the way back just to give a guy a stone **** (yep it’s a thing).

This game places you directly into a land of adventure, politics, and family turmoil. I was wonderfully surprised how many things to do there are in this game. Back in 2007 when I first played Assassins Creed I was drawn to the interesting world but was quickly bored with the lack of unique things to do in the game. Now 11 years later that problem is gone.

    I am about 37 hours into the game at this point and have not finished it but I cannot put it down. Assassin Creed Odyssey is not perfect in anyway but that’s almost what I like about it. I think of Odyssey like a Jack-of-all-Trades, but a master of none. It’s not the best RPG, it doesn’t have the best stealth, or even good combat. Its story is rather simple and there are only a few characters really worth mentioning. But I like that it has all of these elements and that they work well together.

    I do really enjoy the game so far and I plan on getting the platinum trophy on the PS4. That’s a claim for only a few games I own. Assassins Creed Odyssey is really fun to play. And I really love that it gave me a new curse word. Malaka, which I guess, is like calling someone an **** But hell, I will always give a game bonus points for teaching me a new way to curse.

    Now there is a pretty big issue I have with Assassins Creed Odyssey. As the name implies the game is about assassinations and stealth. Odyssey has 3 types of combat that break down to melee, bow, and assassinations. Melee and bow are pretty straightforward. They are not that elegant but you can mix the two together to make combat interesting and dynamic.

    However, assassinations are a bit lackluster. There are only a few ways to assassinate someone and that is by sneaking up behind them, jumping down from above, or using an assassin’s ability. This can feel a bit repetitive which sucks because it’s really the best way to kill people in the game. Assassinations do so much damage that you can’t avoid it. That brings me to stealth because that is even worse.

    The stealth in Assassins Creed Odyssey is literally just crouching in bushes. To become invisible you just crouch. The only additional option that you really have to mix it up is to hide in bushes. Hiding in the bushes make you completely invisible some times even to touch by the enemy. I wish they had added some variety to it like peeking around corners, pulling enemies from windows, etc. Because stealth and assassinations are so strong and easy I find myself just running around crouch stabbing people from enemy to enemy. This quickly feels like I am cheating the game a bit because it’s so simple and powerful.

    If you get caught and break stealth then all you really need to do is run away. It’s that simple no matter what happens you can always run away and then re-stealth. There is one exception I found while in a Fort. If found, one of the enemies can light a signal fire which signals other soldiers and that can make it tricky to continue. I actually like this mechanic because it encourages true stealth and not gaming the system. I wish the transition from stealth to combat were harder to disengage. This would make getting caught more dramatic and dangerous.

    My last gripe before I move onto a few more things I really like about he game is the climbing. All Assassins Creed games have this problem and I cannot believe it’s still the same old song and dance. The climbing is sporadic and hard to control. I tried to climb into a window for 2 minutes because Alexios (the male main character) kept jumping past it, then aside it, then back over it again. Alexios also will try and climb things while in combat when I didn’t mean it to happen. Yea, I probably suck but this should be a non-issue by now. This series has been out for 11 years!

    That being said I really do love this game. The world is vast and the quests are plentiful. It never seems to get too repetitive either. There is just enough story mixed into the side quests to keep me interested without feeling bogged down with information and the progression system keeps me coming back for more. I want to complete some quest I just picked up because it will give me a piece of gear that I want; Or maybe it will put me over the edge in experience so I can get a new ability.

Yes, you get through the game a bit quicker if you pay money, however the "normal" progression through the game is in now way impacted by it. And why anyone would want to hasten through a game like this is a mystery to me.

    The game is easily on the level of The Witcher 3 or Skyrim in size and complexity. The voice acting (if you choose Kassandra) is one of the best performances ever and the writing, both in the main quest and the side quests is brilliant.

    So despite the rage about this game its not a Assassins creed game, the game is really really good and cant wait to go home and play more.

    Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you go and do something like this...AND totally redeem yourself!!! It does not feel like the past Assassins Creed games. Instead it feels like a new RPG made by Ubisoft. It is a complete open/interactive world where you can do whatever you want. If you are person with a slight creative mind, you will have a great time. This world is your Oyster.

    Funny how a lot of the negative reviews are based on 1-2 hours of playing the game. I am 20 hours in at the moment and while it is true that the original feeling of AC is no longer there it does bring something new and it is an Open world RPG. If you cannot accept that then you should have known based on Origins that this game was not going to be for you.

    The game itself is great and

    The game itself is great and offers a lot of features that make the world feel alive.
    Easily you can spent 100+ hours into this game without ever being bored.
    For me this game is a 10 because I know that I will get every penny out of it and enjoy it. Ubisoft has done an amazing job and I advice everyone that loves RPG's to try this out.

    It's great, haven't played Origins, but in contrast to others here I really like what Assassin's Creed has become, I was definitely burned out of the old formula. If you like games like the Witcher 3, then you will like this. Lol at 0 etc scores.

    I think all the negative reviews come from a spoiled generation of gamers. Holy hell the graphics and gameplay for the ship battles, open world exploration and combat is what I dreamed about back in the day when I had Atari. This game is so entertaining and visually appealing that I'm not bored of the game play or the massive world.

It's a rare thing to be excited about wanting to go home from work to play a video game. But this one hit it for me. Thanks Ubisoft!! P.S. if you're a 300 movie fan, the references and scenes are hilarious and fun to watch/participate in. More entertaining than Ryse of Rome imo. Expand

    This is may not play anything like the old games but is that such a bad thing? What you're getting here is a huge beautiful game world to explore on both land and sea set in the best setting: Ancient Greece. And you get to play exactly the way you want. Choice is the biggest addition here, allowing you choose dialogue options and make decisions that affect the story, choose your ownThis is may not play anything like the old games but is that such a bad thing?

Choice is the biggest addition here, allowing you choose dialogue options and make decisions that affect the story, choose your own playstyle; combat or stealth, you even get to choose to play as Alexios or Kassandra who have totally different personalities. I'm glad This franchise went full RPG because though it may be as good as the witcher, it comes pretty damn close.

    One of the games of the year. 10/10.

    Whoever has given a negative review has not played a single hour from this excellent game. The ancient Greek open world is vibrant and majestic. The story is engaging and there is plenty of non boring side questing to do.
    If you're male take my advice and play Kassandra. Thank me later!

    This is an absolute must buy from Ubisoft. The best entry in AC series so far, combining the best elements from The Witcher, Origins, Black Flag and Shadow of War. Yes, it's flawed just like every other big game nowadays, but even The Witcher 3 was partially unplayabe on release. The truth is, Odyssey is a beautiful, engaging and living experience. And it's fun to play.
    I'm replaying old

    I'm replaying old AC games now as well and I can clearly see how much AC won from all those transitions and genre mash-ups. I'm glad that Ubisoft is still the one of five studios who can pull a project of this size and ambition.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a beautiful game. I've just started playing and the game's atmosphere is beyond belief. Being able to choose a character and how you want to play is nice. The best part is it is all changeable during the game.

    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]
