I've played every major game in the AC series - it's my favorite game series and I've really enjoyed most of them (Syndicate was stupid). If you're looking for a huge open world game that's been really well done, whether you like the series or not, play this. Really the only downside for me is that they've made it an RPG.
The "leveled" weapons, gear, characters etc. are really annoying to me. For a game whose roots are in history and realism (granted with a bit of a sci-fi twist), stabbing someone in the back that you've snuck up on should be a quick kill, not an infinitesimally small bit of damage because they're a "23" and you're a "7". You can CARRY a weapon of a higher level than yourself, but goodness no, you can't USE it, silly! That kind of nonsense grinds my gears.
The other RPG thing (new with Odyssey) is the "choose your own dialogue options" bit. I personally don't want to "write my own story", I'm supposed to be living the past generally as it happened, not trying to figure out which option will fail the quest (which can happen, and I don't think they show up again later) and which one will be the most beneficial going forward.
This game is amazing and freaking HUGE! There is so much content, always something to do, explore and delve. The ship battles are amazing and very nostalgic to the thrill of those found in Black Flag. The bounty hunters that hunt you in the world are similar to that of those found in the Shadow of War series. The story driven narrative and choices that bare consequence is that of the Witcher. If you're a fan of any of these games then you're definitely going to enjoy this one. I will admit, it does all these things well but it's these traits aren't as good as the ones that emphasized it. The game comes off as a jack of all trades but a master at none. That being said it's not like it does any of them badly. They're just not perfect as the. With so much content and so much to do there is definitely something here for everyone, highly recommend this game and it well deserves a 5 star rating.
Don’t understand some of the hate the game gets, it was a really fun playthrough and the map is huge. It may not have some of those og ac elements but it’s still a really good game, story was entertaining and there is so much to do in the world
