    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.

    It’s nearly impossible to summarize a game this big, or this complete. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey lives up to its Homeric namesake in scope and scale, adding fantastic new elements to the solid foundation Origins laid before it. For me, it’s easily the best Assassin’s Creed game to date, and I can’t wait to keep playing it long after the credits roll.

    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

It sort of plays like Assassin's Creed. The RPG elements drag down the fun factor significantly. I have seen glimpses of AC elements; Sync points, references to Those Who Came Before (though now referred to as Isu which is annoying), a cult that on the surface may be the beginnings of the Templars, twisted versions of historical figures, and minimal modern day story (so far anyway). Kassandra is a decent main character but there is no hidden blade. Plus because the last game indicates the beginning of the Assassin Order there can be none of that so much earlier in history. Upgrading weapons and armor is a complete pain in the ass. It is a total grind. The skill tree is not horrible but some "abilities" are not worth giving up a token for. The combat is improved, but that happened largely in Origins. Ship warfare is back. So my impression after about 48 hours into gameplay is that a lot of this is rehash combining Black Flag with Origins. This is almost as repetitive as the first game. So many stealth "rooms" of camps or forts where the objectives are repeatedly "Kill the Captain, Kill the Polemunch, Find Treasure, Find (special piece)..." So repetitive. Fetch this, free this character. If it were a Star Wars game there would certainly be Protect/Destroy the Shield Generator missions all over it. The map is huge and the world is beautiful. It doesn't totally suck as many of the problems with earlier games in the series have been fine tuned. I haven't run up the wrong building or a tree the way characters would in earlier AC games, but the repetition is at an all time high. There are more classic AC elements than in Black Flag, but that isn't saying much. This game is a bit of a backslide when compared to Origins, but this used to be an Action Adventure series that is being morphed into an RPG and I really didn't sign up for that. Perhaps cranking one out every year needs to be rethought to keep things fresh and cutting edge. Like I said I'm 48 hours into this game and I am maybe a third of the way through the main story. I intend to finish but another highly anticipated game comes out this week that will take precedent over this because that will truly the most cutting edge game released this year and probably for the next few. You all know what I am talking about. ;) Expand
