    Perfects everything Origins did and enhances them in ways you never thought an Assassin's Creed game could. Odyssey has it all.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey becomes one of the best chapters of the saga to date. Its history involves from beginning to end and the recreation of Ancient Greece is simply sublime. Its mechanics are the result of everything learned in previous chapters and achieve an immersive gameplay. If you are a fan of the saga and you like RPG games, Assassin´s Creed Odyssey is an essential on your bookshelf.

    If not the best, one of the greatest games in the franchise: interesting RPG mechanics, new exploration mode, well written and with a wonderful main character. However, AI and stealth must be improved in the future.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is big and beautiful. Could it be a much better game? Sure. But it's an amazing adventure with echoes of the Greek classic tales about travels and fantasy.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is one of the best chapters of the series, and will delight any fan. Too bad for a limping technical optimization, which spoils the performance of what could have been the best Assassin's Creed ever made.

    Assassin’s Creed Odyssey features a rich, lush world lessened by its repetitive activities. Though the main story is compelling, completing it requires you to participate in a massive amount of level grinding through less-than-stellar side quests. There’s plenty to do in this world, but a lot of it feels like busy work that fights to stay exciting or compelling. Odyssey is yet another open world game that misinterprets the meaning of more content.

    I am the kind of player who only reviews a game if I either really love it, or I really hated it.

    Assassin's creed odyssey made me question
    I am the kind of player who only reviews a game if I either really love it, or I really hated it.

    Assassin's creed odyssey made me question at first. I was scared if the title would have quality since it was so sooner after origins, and I was scared for the quality such as the games in between asassins creed blackflag and origins which were all poor compared to the ezio and connor saga.

    However. I can say that with a lot of assurance, not just the hype of them oment.
    Assassins creed odyssey has been the best assassins creed game I ever played!!!

    I love the game, the more freedom of choices, something I understand didn't exist in previous games, but I like it now.

    I love the combat, the parry, the skills and passives added.
    I love the naval battles brought back
    I love the athens sparta war, and how you can influence who controls a region, it is so fun.
    and of the best features is the enhanced mercenary system from origins. I love h ow they hunt you down if you become notorious. I love how they try to mess with you even when you are doing other quests or other afairs, it adds so much more depths and longevity to the game!!

    Well done ubisoft, well done!

If you loved Origins than this is a no-brainer must buy. If you liked Origins, but felt the RPG elements maybe weren't fleshed out enough than this is again a must buy. If you don't plan on playing this or you just haven't played the series since the Ezio trilogy than you've already given this a 0/10, but when you finally grow up and decide to think for yourself, then this game is more than worth your time

    Played around 15 hours so far .
    As soon as you start off your story you will know this is a game not for the faint hearted ,the scale of this game becomes apparent within the 1st few hours .
    Yes it’s now pretty much an RPG ,does that really matter ?to some it seems to .
    For me this is the perfect game to get stuck into for the next couple of weeks ,probably months .
    If you like orgins you will love this ,stunning map(62% bigger than origins ) from land to ship battles ,great combat ,more advanced than origins .if you like RPGS and open world games then this is perfect for you.easy 9.5 out of 10 from me

    155 часов интересной игры. Ориджин зашел намного хуже, не понимаю как он может нравится вообще. Ужасно скучный сюжет, тупой геймплей. Здесь,155 часов интересной игры. Ориджин зашел намного хуже, не понимаю как он может нравится вообще. Ужасно скучный сюжет, тупой геймплей. Здесь, хоть и немного однообразно захватывать крепости/лагеря, но интересно осваивать все локи, может еще потому что на них можно было найти улики к культистам. Челленджи с мификал чудищами и легендарными животными вообще очень понравились. Expand

    Before I make my review I want to make clear that I am an Assassins Creed hardcore fan. I own all the books, statues, games etc. I loveBefore I make my review I want to make clear that I am an Assassins Creed hardcore fan. I own all the books, statues, games etc. I love Assassins Creed it is my favorite series of all time. Now to the review.
    This game is not Assassins Creed, not in the terms we have come to expect. It instead seems to focus on a piece of Eden "very powerful weapon/tool" in the Assassins Creed universe, but makes no mention of Assassins or Templars. The series seems to be stepping more and more away from the genre that made it successful and into a full on RPG, which is fine. Except in order to make an RPG successful you need a great leveling system and an amazing story. Only problem is that every quest in the game is the same. Go to X and kill Y soldiers or go to Y and get X loot. It is repetitive to the extreme. The story is small and seems distant to all the repetitive quests. This game goes back to what made Black Flag so successful and that is the open seas and sea battles. That again seems distant and forced as it seems 90% of quests and story is on the main land.
    Do not get me started on the micro transactions. I spent $140 on the ultimate edition but am still trying to figure out what that bought me aside from the base game and some gear that is level 1 and is to expensive to upgrade unless you use real money to buy crafting materials. I have spent an additional $70 on maps, and boosters. Things that should have come with that $140 ultimate edition. Yes boosters are required in this game unless you want to spend hours getting one level past 25. Some people might say but leveling is part of an RPG. True it is... but not like this.

    This game is just Origins with a new coat of paint, but terrible story.

    This is the worst Assassins Creed game I have ever played and it hurts me to say that about my beloved series. The only reason it gets a 5 is because of the name Assassins Creed.

You might say "i don't need to buy those i can enjoy the game without them" but after about 20 hours you start to realize the next 200 hours are going to be the exact same lengthy grind. The combat can be fun, but its completely ruined by the lack of rewards for doing anything except putting in your credit card. Expand
