    As beautiful as it is deadly, Origins’ Egyptian playground is finally everything you wanted the Creed to be.

    This is the best game in the Assassin’s Creed series. That extra year of development time has really helped Ubisoft find its creative centre again, and craft something that feels both fresh and energised. I could take or leave the shifts in gameplay to make this more like the loot-grind RPG-likes that dominate blockbuster game development now, but when Ubisoft is playing so beautifully within a fascinating period of history, all I care about is how utterly engrossed I am with the storytelling.

    Assassin's Creed Origins is a triumph, taking the series back to the beginning and allowing players to partake in the genesis of the war between the Templars and the Brotherhood of Assassins.

    Origins is a great game that relies heavily on its setting to make an impact on the player. Its gameplay also evolves, and although it still has some of the issues the series have been suffering in the last few entries, it’s definitely a step in the right direction. If you’ve ever been interested in the series, don’t miss this one.

    Assassin's Creed Origins has vastly improved combat and an astoundingly beautiful world to explore, but it felt a little afraid of going all in with its new direction.

    After taking a year off, Assassin's Creed is going through a transitional period and taking players back to the very founding of the Brotherhood in Ancient Egypt is symbolic of that. The vast new setting, the improved combat system and moving the series towards being a real action RPG have injected this series with a new life.

    Assassin’s Creed: Origins offers an engrossing and deeply satisfying open world in the lands of Egypt. Gorgeous visuals make it a lovely place to explore with rich environments. Still, the excessive amount of bugs at launch are devastating and hampered my experience significantly. Add to that a poorly paced narrative devoid of substantial character development and a battle system that fails to meet its full potential and I can't help but feel something important is missing, Regardless, Assassin's Creed: Origins has a lot to offer new and old fans alike - though the state of its technical performance at launch is highly questionable.

    This game made me want to play AC Brotherhood, the good one.

    Played for a couple hours I have no issues at all, everything runs smooth for me and the game has not crashed.

    Visuals are amazing, I love
    Played for a couple hours I have no issues at all, everything runs smooth for me and the game has not crashed.

    Visuals are amazing, I love that you get flashback missions not just cutscenes when something big happens like killing a high-rank enemy, giving you a backstory to the point of why your taking down this high rank masked one etc. the map is quite big bigger than any AC universe and if you wanna 100% this game then it will take you some time.

    Struggling a little with combat I'm so used to countering then killing like all the other AC games if you think the combat is simple compared to the other games your in for a little surprise!

    YES! there is a Helix credit system, so for people who don't have time to grind can buy in-game currency to spend and some weapons can be unlocked via Uplay credits which are free to earn via your Uplay account anyway. I personally don't buy in-game content at all and only believe that if micro-transactions are on multiplayer games it is unfair.... for single player games the only things you buy with your real money for in-game currency..... if you even want to buy them only affects your personal experience for campaign, not like GTA Online, Battlefield, Battlefront 1 & 2 Loot Packs etc etc so for single player content i don't mind but I personally don't buy content from any game I play!

    Apart from that 10/10 definately an upgrade for syndicate and the bugged monster Unity!

    Would recommend.

I loved the new combat style, and I found the storytelling and characters much more interesting than in Odyssey. The environments and landmarks are breathtaking and fun to explore. The open-world features and side quests are somewhat fatiguing, but the main storyline more than made up for it. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Assassin's Creed Origins is a fun game. It is a game, for me, that I can come back and play to pass up time, however, the story and side quest are very lacking. It is boring story, and silly. I laugh at what was supposed to be serious moments into the game because it is so ridiculous and done so poorly at executing the vibe that it was trying to get. For instance, when you accidentally killed your son in the flashback. That was one of the poorest executed sad moment in story telling that I've seen in a really long time. Also, the combat is a bit buggy and can be very laggy when executing commands. It is trying to be a bloodborne/dark souls combat style by making try and dodge and roll all over the place in conflict, and it isn't done right. Anyways, despite its major flaw in telling an engaging story and occasional lacking gameplay, it is still an over all fun game that has a lot to do. The world is pretty cool and reminds me of far cry by the random animals that can kill you. I enjoy the hunting and crafting and upgrading aspect of the game. You can mold your character to play how you want him to play like an rpg. It has fun moments, it has dull moments, but it isn't an unbearable game. I am glad I got it on sale for 50% off, because if I did not, I would be pretty upset paying for this game that is from a AAA developer. If you do not have this game, waiting for a sale will feel more justifiable solution. Expand
