    An excellent and beautiful game from ancient Greece. Maybe it’s very different from the first game, however this evolution benefits the brand. [Issue#290]

    So as the story unfolds, along with your map and you get into this gathering, parkouring and hunting rhythm here comes the main reason that has me rate Odyssey right up there with Origins. Next to Kassandra herself and animal taming, it’s the Naval component that really makes this Assassins Creed epic.

    Despite my few complaints, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey truly is an incredibly entertaining game that proves Origins was no fluke. I’m back on the hype train, baby, and I can’t wait to see where the next stop is (even if I wish it’d rest at the same station for another year or two). No longer a simple stealth game, but instead a massive, detailed, sprawling roleplaying game, Odyssey just might be one of my favorite games of 2018 so far.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey delivers a visually stunning experience on PC, thanks to 4K resolution and maxed out effects. The game is huge, with plenty of missions and characters for you to discover, a solid combat system, the return of naval battles and a compelling narrative.

    Undoubtedly, AC: Odyssey as a game has quite a few issues: bad AI, the strangulation of the player with hundreds of missions and missed opportunities on the RPG level. But it does something also very important: it includes a huge and impressive world, capturing successfully the Ancient Greece aesthetic and it manages to be truly entertaining and unimaginably addictive.

    As expected, Odyssey is basically Origins 2.0, bigger and better in almost every regard, from leveling options to wide open world with procedurally-generated mercenaries to keep you entertained for hours and hours. [Issue #233, p.54]

    While AC: Origins was packed with interesting stories, Odyssey is a generic ’Ubisoft sandbox’ in the worst sense, with hundreds of the same-looking places, dozens of ”kill-fetch” quests and almost zero motivation to grind further.

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.

    Everything is cool but please in the next game bring back the Unity experience, like the combact system, where the level doesn't matter

I remember those days when it has a perfect game play, interesting plot and charmy characters. I really felt them alive. I felt their life, their pain, they're happy and finally, love! I thought, when AC end, what will i do? How can i life with out it?! I was a fool, big fool! It would be better if it end! That what i seeing now, it's not AC, it's dancing on the bones! The AC was the ray of light in the dark kingdom! Ubisoft, you can proud of yourself, you ruined the greatest game, you are very tallented! Thanks for the useless comics that no one reads! This game just a waste of time and money!!! Good buy ubisoft! I will not buy your games anymore! Expand
