I’ve been playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and I thought I had to create a dedicated thread about the game.
First things first, this is hands down the best Assassin’s Creed game I’ve ever played. It is a fantastic game that is more like cocaine than a video game. It is impossible to put down.
So, the changes from Origins to Odyssey has not been all that big, but they count.
Firstly the combat mechanics are much MUCH more refined. Long gone are the days of just button mashing or just spamming the counter button to beat enemies. Enemies are difficult, and you have to approach the fight more tactically. The game gives more than enough skills and moves to counter and deal with this increase in difficulty though.
The game world is fantastic! Greece has never looked better, the map is varied and interesting and full of detail.
Then the story and campaign are great as well. Side missions are varied and have the possibility of arching into their own storylines. The main quest is interesting and intriguing, and in about 12 hours of play, I’ve only seen 3 minutes of cutscenes of any current time Abstergo bullshit.
So ask questions about the game if you’d like, or just go and put it on your wishlist, or better yet, buy it right now.
