    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.

    With Odyssey, Ubisoft has crafted the biggest Assassin's Creed to date. A colossal open world, action RPG, that can go toe to toe with the biggest names in the genre. If you're a fan of this kind of game, don't miss it.

    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 a superb open world RPG. It can be a little rough around the edges, but there's a gameplay freedom to this particular adventure that's really a cut above what the series has attempted previously. With a gameplay loop that simply never stops giving, Ubisoft's recreation of ancient Greece is an amazing achievement, and in some ways, a genuine step forward for open world game design.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey throws so much stuff at you, it's difficult to sift through it all. It's a beautiful game to look at and the story is intriguing, but it feels like a game that could have been a little more ambitious if given more time to develop. There's good ideas, from the branching story and character choice to the return of ship-based combat, but its ambitions also fray around the edges in a way that Origins didn’t.

    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.

    У этой игры еще больше хэйта чем у метро. Читаешь вот так рецензии и не понимаешь почему некоторые проекты превозносят до небес(типа ВедьмакаУ этой игры еще больше хэйта чем у метро. Читаешь вот так рецензии и не понимаешь почему некоторые проекты превозносят до небес(типа Ведьмака 3 который и в подметке данной игре не годится, кроме разве что сюжета), а некоторые сливают из-за издателей, оптимизации, микротранзакций и прочих АБСОЛЮТНО НЕСУЩЕСТВЕННЫХ вещей. Игровое сообщество деградирует ещё сильнее чем кинематографическое последнее время...Очень грустно.

    Игра шедевр. В этом мире хочется жить. Да потом становится скучновато, как и в любых огромных открытых играх ( тот же ведьмак3, тож самое, куча однообразных знаков вопроса с однотипными группами мобов, или бандитами от которых тошнить начинало через 10 ч игрпы), но это единственный минус, всё остальное очень на уровне. За одну воду и её реализацию игре можно ставить 10 баллов).
    Одна из лучших игр последних лет, и однозначно лучшая в серии, пусть это уже не Ассассин конечно, если брать сюжет. Must play.

    И призыв ко всем адекватнным людям. НЕ РЕАГИРУЙТЕ на обзоры, если там пишут про перечисленные ниже пункты и выставляют на основе них отрицательные рейтинги:
    1) оптимизацию и баги
    2)донат, цены, микротранзакции, гэймшоп и прочее.
    Люди в последнее время просто считают что за их сраные 2000руб им все всё должны...
    Грустно, чо))

    So good game, really like it's RPG directions, big world, cool cutscenes (comparing to Origins). Cool fun characters. Awesome stories, all 3 (cultists, Atlantis, family). Updating + new quests coming out every 1/2 weeks. 11/10 from me

    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

    Com um jogo renovado a Ubisoft nos proporciona uma mudança necessária para a franquia.

    Antes de lançar, o hater em cima do jogo era alto com muitos dizendo que seria apenas uma cópia do Origins, mas estavam errados. O jogo de longe é muito mais que isso, é o melhor da franquia. Com vários detalhes adicionados que seus antecessores não tinham. Deixou de ser apenas um jogo histórico como elemento principal, agora se tornando um RPG enriquecendo o jogo como um todo. Creio eu que se a Ubisoft largar a ideia de lançar um jogo de Assassin's Creed por ano e dar mais tempo para o desenvolvimento do jogo a qualidade pode ser melhor, que é o que este tipo de jogo necessita.

    Por outro lado as missões com o tempo se tornam maçantes e repetitivas, são todas muito parecidas e também não se vê mais duas coisas que eu gostava muito dos jogos anteriores que são o assassinato fatal furtivo, agora se o poder de assassinato não sendo suficiente perante o nível do soldado mesmo enfiando uma adaga nas costas do inimigo ele não morre de primeira. A outra é a fluidez da movimentação do personagem principal ao andar, correr, saltar, subir, esbarrar em alguém, etc, antes era fluído (meio realista) agora não se vê mais nada disso.

    Claro que precisam melhorar várias coisas nos próximos jogos que vierem pela frente, porém o primeiro passo para uma mudança corajosa e necessária já foi dada e acertada com muitos mais prós que contras, porém não podem esquecer totalmente do passado da franquia.

Combat is the clunkiest of any AC game I have played. Voice acting and dialogue is good, and the story is worthy of prior AC titles. The combat really holds this game back. interface is terrible, movement is disjointed and awkward, and I feel that the characters should just stay in the bushes and watch the war. Worst AC title to be released, and that is painful to say after being a dedicated AC player since the beginning. Graphic and art is amazing, except for the fact that the same art appears in multiple temples. Trust me, there is more Greek art out there. Expand

    Assassins Greed Odyssey is by far one of the worst entries on the franchise full of bad game design and poor story telling. Let´s start withAssassins Greed Odyssey is by far one of the worst entries on the franchise full of bad game design and poor story telling. Let´s start with the dialog and story (NO SPOILERS), so the dialogs system tries to be like witcher 3 dialog but unfortunantley falls flat, in one mission I tried calming down a little girl and appeard a dialog for it but what my Alexios said was a brutally opinion and harmed the poor girl´s feelings and this type of dialogs are spread in all the game side quests and main missions. The flashbacks are cheesy with no impact at all, and the romance system is so boring, it doesn´t requiered attetion to the character you trying to romance, just press the romance of option and BAM you just got a hot date with a boring no meaningful character, were in other games you need to actually put effort in doing it.
    Now the combat: Origins did a great job evolving AC combat and it was simple, functonal, with a functional lock-system. But un AC Odyssey is a complete mess, the parry requieres two buttons to work LB+RB which if you ask me is pointless,when in other games like witcher 3, dark souls, origins, etc., you only press one button for the parry and it worked so good because hey just requieres pressing one simple button. When you hold LB for a special attack or parry, your character is completley vulnerable and thanks to the delay of buttons in the game, you´ll end up getting hit, (NOTE: Im playing this game on nightmare mode), the lock system is crazy, with a small move the joystick you´ll change the lock to multiple enemies, a cool feature on ORIGINS was when you were close to a structure, plant, fence, etc., you could see through those things so you wouldn´t miss the character and concencrete fully on the battle, when AC Odyssey doesn´t have that helpful feature and last but not least the special attacks are broken, specially the spartan kick, you know your game has problems when people abuse the special attacks and that makes the game unchallenging when they´re charge.
    Difficulty: like I said, Im playing on nightmare mode. As someone who loves a challenge, the difficulty on AC is not challenging but absurd, when Im fighting against the legedary animals Im so concentrated on them that when all they call more animals to aid the "boss" my enjoyment is completely ruin by a bad game design wich is that, when you are fighting a boss is suppose to be between you and the boss and not their minions+boss and the problems mentioned before made the battles more frustrating and the same goes to captains, ORIGINS nightmare mode made it fair and challenging. -OH JUST LOWER THE DIFFICULTY DOWN, yeah like lowering down the difficulty will fix the problems of game design in the game.
    Special features:
    Bounty: the bounty was a create concept, but poorly introduced. Mercenaries appeared out of nowhere next to you after 5 seconds into the bounty, they´re crazy powerful or weak mercenaries, they aren´t divieded by zones. The phylakitais on ORIGINS worked so much better, all of them were powerful but fair and divided by zones.
    System Isolation: I hate the new armor/lvl/combat system, they isolate the stealth, combat and ranged combat. When I tried doing my playthrough stealthy I was completley rekt, why? Simple, my assassin armor was weak, and if I used the hunter or warrior armor, they´ll decreased my stealth damage, at the en I gave up on my stealth playthrough and went combat only which is a shame since I love my stealth missions and playthrough. The bows are completley useless even with full hunter armor. Games like MGSV, origins, metro, etc. Reward you for stealth and aren´t isolated by a stupid and painful system isolation.
    Animations: thanks to the poorly lock system, the mess of a combat system, and bad game desing, the animations paid a huge price specially on the combat, they are so many bad animations for the enemies that I usually miss a parry thanks the to poorly made animations, some enemies will hit you with an invisible attack that connected with you even 2mts away. And the climbing, I always get stuck on various parts of the maps thanks to a poorly placed polygon or bad programming.
    Enemies: the female enemies with spears are crazy powerful, they´ll hit you non-stop even if you hit them they wont flinch at all, the big ones are easy but with creazy powerful attacks, but mostly easy, the one handed sword are fast for its own good, and then the shield ones thata are like mountain with a crazy defense or weak defense. There is no balance and so many other enemies that are more broken than FOR HONOR at launch.
    I could keep going and say more about the problems about this game, but Im running out of characters. So at the end, DO NOT HEAR THE GAME JOURNALIST AND GAME CRITIQUES LIKE IGN AND GAMESTOP, they were paid to said good things about this game (like always). After this awful expirience Im never buying a game from ubisoft quebec ever again.
