A Too Early Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

I’ve only just started playing! But because I think it will be about fourteen years before I’m done playing this game, I figured I’d go ahead and write a review based on my initial impressions.

This game is frustratingly expansive and overwhelmingly detailed. It’s a long, slow burn with many of the best parts of past AC installments like sailing, hunting, and serial murder.

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed: Origins

(4 of 5 stars) The oddly flat style of art and a control layout that I found rather awkward gave me a bad first impression of this game, but I’m glad I stuck with it because it ended up being a lot of fun. The story is only so-so, but I enjoyed the new game mechanics.  Critics will likely complain that missions are repetitious, but that’s a hallmark of the series by now, right?
