    If you love the Assassin’s Creed games then this is one of the best, even though it’s not a million miles away from the stunning Origins.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey's open-world adventure through ancient Greece is a gorgeous thrill, and the best the series has ever been.

    If you have the time and patience, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is worth a look, if not for the meandering plot and lore, than for the history porn, the earnest humor, and the massive, mystery-filled world.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey comes close to be the best title of the series to date, with a much-improved narrative design, an interesting main storyline and an overhauled gameplay inherited from last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.

    Odyssey puts player freedom front and centre in a way the games never have before, while also taking in perhaps the most fun and gorgeous location we've seen so far.

    Assassin's Creed: Odyssey builds on everything good Origins introduced, but with a bit lower quality stories and adding some new systems that end up being not so impressive. Overall, though, it's still a very solid open world game with lots of content and some very gorgeous visuals. It won't amaze you as Origins did, but it'll still provide tens of hours of quality play.

    Odyssey makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world, and it's a joy to venture out and leave your mark on its ever-changing setting.

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 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.

    Starting with performance, on the Xbox One S the game runs smoothly with occasional drops in frame rate, which aren't the end of the world. IStarting with performance, on the Xbox One S the game runs smoothly with occasional drops in frame rate, which aren't the end of the world. I have had the game crash on me a couple of times, once resetting my progress by half an hour which was annoying. Moving on to core game play, combat is fun while requiring a bit of learning to fully get the hang of it. Sailing, while sometimes tedious can be fun once your ship is upgraded, but luckily is used sparingly throughout the story. The story itself isn't incredible, but still interesting enough to keep me interested and involved. And the voice acting, while on average good, can get to points of being downright horrible, but these moments are few and far between. The two protagonists you can choose from, Alexios and Kassandra, both have the same story, but it seems Kassandra is better acted than Alexios, from the two playthroughs I have made. The gear system is an improvement over that of Origins, giving you full control on how you want t build your character, along with the skill trees. The trees are also much simpler compared to Origins, but only allows you to have so many skills at one time. So while Origins was more complex, you would make more use of all of the skills in that game unlike Odyssey. The world that the game sets you in, Ancient Greece in 431 BC is very in depth and fully realized maintaining a historical accuracy. In conclusion, the game is fun and enjoyable with the introduction of complete RPG options and makes it one of my favorite games of the year. Expand

    Just an average ubisoft game. MEH . I expected more tbh.

    Openworld is gorgeous and massive but why the hell would they put in that big of a map? 7/10. Origin's Map was better
    Combat animations look kind of polished this time around . Plus there are tons of weapons at your disposal. 8/10
    Sidequests are pretty similar to each other and the openworld is filled with these . Some of them actually tied into the main story , so thats a good thing. 6.5/10
    The micro transactions this time around are complete and utter horse raddish . Lemme tell you one thing , this game is grindy as hell! You actually come to a point , where you buy the stuff with real money just because you hate the grind.
    Overall game :5.5/10 .
    I gave origins a 6/10 but the mtx ruined this one for me
    But overall i think this is a better game than origins .
    At the same time its a worse "ASSASSIN"S CREED GAME" than origins

    A grindy game that forces you to buy microtransactions with a **** story and a worse voice acting cast.
