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?
