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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Visually, it's stunning on the Xbox one X and the PS4 Pro. The game is by far better than Red Dead redemption....

    Played around 15 hours so far .
    As soon as you start off your story you will know this is a game not for the faint hearted ,the scale of this game becomes apparent within the 1st few hours .
    Yes it’s now pretty much an RPG ,does that really matter ?to some it seems to .
    For me this is the perfect game to get stuck into for the next couple of weeks ,probably months .
    If you like orgins you will love this ,stunning map(62% bigger than origins ) from land to ship battles ,great combat ,more advanced than origins .if you like RPGS and open world games then this is perfect for you.easy 9.5 out of 10 from me

    Surprisingly good action RPG. It has great settings, historical characters, mythical monsters and existing places.

    The worst about this
    Surprisingly good action RPG. It has great settings, historical characters, mythical monsters and existing places.

    The worst about this game are the "Assassin Creed" parts (mostly present parts), without them the game would be much better. The game also does not have proper ending with ending credits. It was huge disappointment which left me like not finishing the game after 90 invested hours. After this enormous time I was looking forward to already finish the game and move to something else. I believe most mature players these days have enough money, but they do not have enough time (e.g. I will not be able to finish in my life all the games and books which I own). From the authors of the games I would expect to prepare the game as good as possible without any fillers and with proper ending respecting its players (and customers of the authors). Quality is more than quantity and Assassins Creed franchise is not the type of game like Monster Hunter. The proper length would be approx. 40-50 hours. Or at least the mains missions (like hunt for cultist) should not be hidden between hundreds of side quests.

    Also the movement is little bit clunky and fighting is quite simple. I have played RDR2 right before it and then started Death Stranding. Both these games has much better feeling of moving in real environment.

    Simply said without great characters and ancient Greek setting, I would enjoy the game much less.
