    If anything, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey showcases Ubisoft’s commitment to strengthen the franchise and keep it relevant. Not only does Odyssey successfully expand and build on the systems and foundations that made last year’s entry so compelling, but it also relays more character, depth and world engagement throughout. Make no mistake about it, this is the finest entry in the series so far.

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

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey successfully builds upon the already strong foundation that Origins set to provide yet another Assassin’s Creed experience that still feels fresh and, more importantly, fun to explore and dive into. Even better, it does all this without the typical bloat you’d expect, although Conquest Battles do feel like a missed opportunity. Despite this minor letdown, Odyssey eclipses Origins in practically every way, and is easily the best Assassin’s Creed yet.

    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.

    This is the kind of game where you could wipe out days of time paying attention to one piece of the greater story, with the true joy coming when you get to take a step back and see the story you've built.

Origins was a huge improvement in gameplay mechanics but Odyssey's inclusion of dialogue options and choice of gender makes it feel like a true RPG. If they continue down this path, every AC game will be a must play for me. Expand

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.

    A Genuine Fast Take of AC: Odyssey

    Every single person on this website that can rate this game below a 5 or 4 needs to review their score for Witcher 3 and reevaluate what the essence of a 'grind' is. All I have seen is moaning and complaining about how 'grindy' the game is when all open-world RPGs have some mild to moderate level of grind.

    Marking the addition to the series as a negative based on money you can CHOOSE to spend or not spend is disingenuous and your review is worth goose-egg, as far as I am concerned.

    Moving on from this, I was immediately enraptured by the setting. The world is teeming with all of those curious ? marks that you can immediately explore. I wish that your eagle could physically reveal them for you during scan mode but no dice on that. Some weapon styles are superior to others and some fit into the kind of combat style you are looking for. I enjoy the low cost of the Engraving system that allows you to mix and match specific Engravings for abilities on differing pieces of gear. (Legendary set items scale once you get all the pieces, which is a huge plus for end-game.)

    There is some definite tedium; I enjoyed the way Origins had a quick dodge within combat where it is seemingly missing in Odyssey for a hold down dodge mechanic where the longer button press, the further you dodge. Not ideal but it's there. I miss the old one. Being able to respec abilities is another plus; very cool if you want to try something different in the talent trees.

    The choice of dialogue is better than sitting me through a cutscene and having me answer if I will accept a quest or not. I found myself skipping through Origins scenes incessantly whereas here, I want to see what my differing dialogue choices will net me and what sort of alternating changes that my demeanor will have on future quests, as little or big the ripple in the lake may be.

    Ship controls are rather...meticulous for this entry in the series but it can very well the button scheme that I needed to operate with in the manner in which I liked to play Origins; the mere fact it has the returning option is a plus, familiarity is nice in those outnumbered combat situations. But the water traversal itself is nothing short of gorgeous.

    My biggest complaint? Towns should be made to be fast traveled to. Major towns and cities on islands should have an option to be returned to with a button press. It was present in Origins and ripped from Odyssey for...what? Perhaps the Exploration Mode? I still feel it would round out the travel between points and having to rely on Viewpoints for your back and forth between the world.

    The game has received an 9 because there are things that irk me with it; it diminishes a point for making me yell at some of the minutia of complaints I have. But it also gets a 9 because I am having immense amounts of fun. And that is what matters.

    If you read this in full, I thank you and happy gaming.

    As a lover of Ancient Greece and Greek mythology, I loved the setting of AC:Odyssey from the get go.

    As a lover of Ancient Greece and Greek mythology, I loved the setting of AC:Odyssey from the get go.

    The GOOD

    The open world is so pretty :) And the dynamic weather makes the world really immersive.
    It does not bring anything truly ground breaking and new to the franchise true, being more an amalgam of game features from previous games, however in some cases existing mechanics are expanded like naval combat, abilities and inventory.
    I particularly like Kassandra of the two playable characters, because of her voice acting and her personality.

    The BAD

    On the negative side of things I've had a few glaring bugs, some funny, some just down right annoying and a crash or two, which is never cool :(

    The story doesn't really make sense, and I don't really like that you have to pause it just to get to the appropriate level to continue. It LITERALLY took me out of the story :/

    I don't like the idea of micro-transactions in games that are forced upon you because the game is deliberately being slow.

    The MEH

    I don't find the genre shift to RPG bothersome as I myself am a lover of RPG. True, the RPG elements such as dialogue choices don't make much sense lore-wise, but eh, I don't really care.

    I didn't care about the mercenary system, ended up spending a lot of my drachmae just to play without the obligatory mercenary tailing me.

From watchdogs 2 to far cry 5 to Origins, it’s just the same typical open world boring, shallow main story and side missions, with slow forced progression unless you want to break down the micro transaction pay wall. Oh and can’t forget the cringe worthy voice acting, speaking English with a pathetic Greek attempted accent. Expand

Odyssey is to Origins, what Rogue is to black flag. Just some after wank-spank with a $60 price tag. Instead of improving on the good mechanics, they've tweaked it, and it's complete ass. The games voice acting is terrible, and ubisoft still doesnt know how to properly make a human-head. The only thing that looked alright were the friggin' waves breaking against the shores. This game is garbage and i cannot fathom how people are positive about this.. it truly baffles me. If this is the current standard for open world games, then i'm pretty sure the world isnt ready for Red Dead Redemption 2. Expand
