    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.

    Wow wow wow. Have been a huge fan of this franchise since the first release in 2007 for Xbox 360. Have played no other versions since BlackWow wow wow. Have been a huge fan of this franchise since the first release in 2007 for Xbox 360. Have played no other versions since Black Flag because of mediocre reviews but now Origins has turned out to be the best instalment yet! Beautiful graphics & sound (have always loved the auditory ambience in this game) . Gameplay is fantastic & improved: horse/camel/chariot/boat riding is effortless, climbing is quick & nimble, tracking quests is simple. I'm only about 5-7 hours in to the game but loved it right away. The only negative so far isn't really relevant: I've never been a fan of cut-scenes in any game & Assassin's Creed is famous for them. They don't seem to come quite as often as in previous versions & I'm sorry to say that I still skip most of them. Overall, well worth your $ and your time. Expand

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.

    I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. My least favorite AC game is Black Flag. I didn't want to be a pirate. I wanted to be an assassin.I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. My least favorite AC game is Black Flag. I didn't want to be a pirate. I wanted to be an assassin. The same team that made Black Flag, made this game. It is stunning and the controls are precise. The story is pretty good. It is slow to get started with the meat of the game. The game is almost everything you'd expect from an AC game, but it still feels like something different like Black Flag did. While I don't care for the new combat system, there is so much game to sink your teeth into. If you like AC, this game won't disappoint. Expand

    Ich habe bereits eine Assassin's Creed Teile gespielt, doch an diesen erinnere ich mich immer wieder gern und schalte deswegen ab und zuIch habe bereits eine Assassin's Creed Teile gespielt, doch an diesen erinnere ich mich immer wieder gern und schalte deswegen ab und zu immernoch die Konsole an, um erneut in die Welt von Bayek ab zu tauchen.
    Assassin's Creed macht es nämlich anders als alle Titel zuvor. Es versucht sich an Rollenspiel Aspekten und einen neuen grandiosen Kampfsystem, wodurch es zum ersten Mal richtig Spaß mach nicht wie ein Assassine vorzugehen. Zudem gibt es zahlreiche tolle Skills durch die im Laufe des Spiels sich einen mehr und mehr Möglichkeiten eröffnen. Doch nicht nur im neuen Kampf und Skill System setzt Origins der Reihe neue Maßstäbe, sondern auch im Historischen!
    Es macht einfach Spaß durchs spielen so viel über die Ägyptische Mythologie zu erfahren und Sachen wieder zu entdecken, die man einst in Geschichtsunterricht gelernt hat.
    Man könnte meinen das Spiel wäre perfekt, doch leider merkt man, dass es sich immernoch um ein Ubisoft Spiel handelt. Tausende Fragezeichen verteilt auf der ganzen Map, man weiß garnicht wo man Anfangen soll.
    Viele dieser Nebenmissionen und Open World Events machen echt spaß, fordern dich heraus oder erzählen eine Spannende Geschichte, aber dann gibt es noch so viele Belanglose. Rette ihn, bringe mir das und so weiter, teilst sind diese Nebenmissionen echt mühselig, darum Frage ich mich warum Ubisoft diese nicht einfach völlig rauslässt.
    Ich kann im großen und ganzen Assassin's Creed Origins nur weiter empfehlen. Es hat eine mitreißende Story und ein tolles Gameplay, auch wenn es ,wenn man sich zu sehr auf die Nebenmissionen stürzt, manchmal etwas zäh werden kann.

Its beyond me how many people would have tested this, used this, and created this, all of whom should have stressed how obviously difficult this is. It should have never been implemented and should have been removed as soon as it was. This is a relativity small aspect, but is a constant pain throughout, and is so blatantly incompetent that for a AAA game and large production co. as Ubisoft, it would be absurd to condone this in any way.
