It has been more than 10 years that the publisher Ubisoft frequently suggests us to follow the adventures of these silent assassins who have shaped the history of the world, century after century. If all episodes of the series are not equal, we must recognize that we usually spend a great time with the character we control. Freedom of movement often seems total, and we climb buildings with the ability of a cat, we kill with the precision of a ninja while attending a real history lesson! Well Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is no exception to the rule but switches to an open world that offers immense freedom to players.
You are immersed in Ancient Greece , with an initial choice between 2 characters who will have some influences on the continuation of the adventure. Who from Kassandra or Alexios will have your favor? Then, you will switch into this beautifully modeled open world , and you will cross the plains (on foot or on horseback) of this Greece taken in full war of Peloponnese. The scenario, cleverly conducted, is exciting and you will need between 30 and 50 hours to see the end. We particularly appreciate the importance given to your choices during the dialogues, which will have real repercussions on the following events: death of character, treason, new quest …
The characters are charismatic , both heroes and secondary characters, and we like to browse this huge open world to discover every nook and cranny. The different narrative arcs are all worthy, so you’ll want to know the outcome of all the quests. And as the graphics reinforce the sense of immersion, we like to get lost on the largest map that an Assassin’s Creed has ever seen so far!
The most curious players will be rewarded with original quests and bonus equipment, which will allow you to strengthen your character. The RPG aspect is supported and you choose the style that suits you the most, especially for fighting.
It was often the pet peeve of the series, with soft and repetitive fights. But this time is over and the work brought to the fight scenes is here palpable: more mobile, more lively and above all much more aggressive, our killer reacts to the finger and the eye and each game will be more intense moment! Excellent news for the series that is finally renewed!
The return of naval battles to Black Flag is a pleasant surprise, as is the additional mission offered with the Collector’s Edition ( The Blind King ), and make this Assassin’s Creed Odyssey a great surprise.
