    With a stream of post-launch content bolstering what it is already an epic 50-hour-plus adventure, Assassin’s Creed Origins is one of the most engrossing and awe-inspiring experiences of the year, especially on Xbox One X where the visuals are pushed to the max. You can nit-pick all you like about the odd funny glitch here and there and some duff NPC dialogue, but Assassin’s Creed Origins is a near flawless open-world gaming experience.

    After a more than deserved rest, Assassin’s Creed makes its comeback with one of the best entries of the saga. Despite the story may not meet the expectations of some fans, its big and deep world alongside the new gameplay mechanics are enough reasons to give a chance to one of the best releases of Ubisoft on the actual generation of consoles.

    Assassin’s Creed Origins is one of the best open-world action games of this generation. The setting is quite evocative, the plot is engaging and there are also good endgame activities. The Creed is reborn.

    Egypt and star Bayek make this a promising forebear to a new age of Creed.

    Origins doesn’t completely rebuild Assassin’s Creed, but makes a number of smart, significant changes to a formula that, despite yearly updates, was showing its age. The increased freedom in how you approach targets, the more active combat, and alluring world not only make exploring Egypt a rewarding experience, but also offer a strong direction for the series going forward while still remembering what made it unique in the first place.

    Assassin's Creed Origins shakes up the series' combat, loot, and progression, while retaining the atmosphere, impressive open world, and historical bent that has made the franchise so beloved.

    Assassin's Creed: Origins packs many new tricks, yet feels dated. Its combat is clunky, its story generic, and despite a gorgeous world, Origins fails to live up to the standards set by the games it wants to resemble.

I can't believe the gaming community is going around attacking this game and giving it zero without even playing. The game itself is great, no performance issues, ignore all the no life haters.

Story is set before the rise of Assassins and Templars, we get so see some interesting why's and maybe's. Immersive, interesting and gripping by far. Map is huge, lots and lots to do and discover and loads of side quests. Haven't seen any real bugs, except the creepy crawling ones inside pyramids of course. Timesavers is a great option for those of us who don't have time or patience to find and grind ourselves. Some of the boss fights are thrilling, most fights feels balanced and entertaining but a few stands out as nerve-wrecking. I love the variety when it comes to weapons and equipment as well as maps, puzzles and dungeons. I used to think Black Flag was the most fun I ever had in AC but maybe, just maybe Origin stole that position. I've completed 47% of the game and I haven't even started playing in the krokodilopolis arena and the hippodrome yet. I've had too much fun skulking about Memphis. Expand

Not having played an AC game since Brotherhood, I was"Assassin's Creed Origins" is one of the best open world games to come out in a while. Not having played an AC game since Brotherhood, I was unsure what to expect. I came away with a game that was a total blast and has many hours in store.

    One of the best things about the Assassin's Creed games in general is the stealth. This game ups the ante thanks to the brilliant use of a bird named Senu that will spot enemies for you and can even track their paths through a perk system. This is the first AC game with an XP system and it is incredibly addictive. I found myself always wanting to discover a new location or a take down a few enemies so that I could continue to level up. The only issue I have with the leveling up system is that at times there is grinding required to get to the next mission in the main quest.

    AC Origins does a great job at presenting Egypt as well. The locales are varied and awesome, and there is something to do at almost every location. I loved climbing pyramids, running across enemy camps, and diving for deep-sea treasures. While the story isn't the most compelling thing in the world, the inclusion of historical figures made it at least someone interesting. I do like the relationship between Bayek and his son and his quest for revenge, but this is no Braveheart,

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing Assassin's Creed Origins. I somewhat wish there was a multiplayer element to it for more replay value, but there is still plenty to do in it regardless. From a great open-world, to varying missions, and an addictive leveling system, Assassin's Creed Origins is worthy of the praise as one of the best games of 2017.
