    Five star setting. The lands and the scenery are very detailed and appear well researched. But there are a few things which keep this from a 5 star review. It is basically another Assassin's Creed game without much innovation. Sure there is a big new world to explore... and it is really interesting to do so... but it's a lot of the same mechanics, the same feel, the same the same the same. Which isn't terrible... but I like looking at Elder Scrolls as an example. The release one main game maybe every 5 years. And then many fun expansions for much less than a full game price. But each new title in the series (not expansions) feels different and unique. Similar but different enough to keep them fresh. So if Ubisoft could just get that little bit of 'fresh and new' feeling into their titles, that would be great! The one time I really felt they made a big update was when they released Black Flag. That felt fresh and new and interesting. So bottom line... cool game, cool setting, but if you are an AC veteran, it's a lot more of the same. Take the good and the meh. Also, microtransactions are sometimes okay, but 'time savers'? Not cool. But I guess people can use or avoid at their own choosing... but they are kind of right there and kind of annoyingly in your face... But I guess that's the way the gaming industry is heading... sigh... But I did not ding the game rating because you choose if you want to use them.

    Never could really get into A.C. game until this

    I have tried many A.C. games and have always been interested, but never could get hooked to continue playing for hours. What can I say, this game got me hooked. To start Graphics on Xbox One X are Gorgeous especially if you have a HDR 4K T.V. Stopped so many times to look at scenery. The game itself has ton of main missions, plus side missions if you are completion experts. I would say side missions are similar, but 80% of them feel different and dialogue makes you feel it was well thought out. Even some being meaningful. The way upgrades and menus are designed many choices feel meaningful. And I love even as a low level character you can travel anywhere on map. You might not survive, but you can try. Fast travel is greatly spread out. 1st game in a awhile I bought the DLC and I can say DLC is was put together well. Would definitely say not a must purchase for DLC. If you couldn't get enough like me then I recommend. Glad I gave this game a chance beyond just playing an hour or 2.

    Best AC is awhile

    This honestly feels nothing like Assassins Creed to me, which is exactly what I was hoping. AC always felt rather clunky and looked drab. This game has a nice smoothness to it and looks absolutely amazing. Quite posibly one of the best looking open world games this generation (and I havent tried since new HDR patch or used on X1X yet, which will only make it better). Combat feels more like Witcher 3 than Batman which is welcome, feels more natural and less about timing/QTE. Characters are cool, feels believable (except fact their speaking english in Egypt which I know I could change to make more realistic but I like not having to read lol). Setting is absolutely stunning. I cant think of another game ive played that made me feel like I was in this time period. The beginning tomb area was amazing, felt like I was legitimately in an old egyptian tomb. I havent played much as im waiting to fully dive in once I get my X1X tuesday, but what I have played, i know im going to sink alot of time into this. Always liked the series but never loved it. This may turn me into loving it.

    Still can't decide...

    Still can't decide if I like this or not. On one hand, Egypt looks absolutely breathtaking. On the other, the combat system is complete garbage. Ubisoft needs to stop making such drastic changes to the controls and gameplay in the series. I appreciate them trying to do something new. But the combat is just a mess. I really did enjoy the previous games "lock on" mechanic when it came to getting bombarded by multiple enemies. Now you'll find yourself swinging at air and everything but enemies when you're attacked from all sides. It'll also take you a good 8-10 hours before you even get anywhere in the game. It's very reminiscent of Assassin's Creed 3, where you do a ton of useless tasks that do nothing to propel the story before you even start to get into the meat of the game. All in all I was overwhelmed visually, but completely underwhelmed by the lack of a compelling story and gameplay.

    A breath of fresh air for Assassin's Creed.

    This game is such a breath of fresh air from the Assassin's Creed series. Ubisoft finally changed up the mechanics, and they work so well. The game is also extremely beautiful, they've crafted Egypt so well I catch myself stopping and looking at my surroundings very often. The customization isn't extremely deep, but there is customization. The fighting mechanics is more like Dark Souls than your usual AC game, but they do work, for whatever reason. The bow and sword both feel good when you use them, each having a small variety to choose from, Maxes or Straight Swords, Light Bows or Warrior Bows that fire multiple arrows at once. The game is also teeming wild wildlife almost everywhere you go. Like I said before, it's different, which is a really great thing coming from a yearly series that barely changed each year. (I would also recommend Black Flag.)

    I've played almost every single Assassin's Creed game (Skipped Syndicate) and have been a long time fan since the beginning. Although Unity was a huge disappointment, this is them most complete, fluent, and content filled world that Ubisoft has made and it is safe to say that this game is excellent. The graphics are absolutely superb, the combat is intense and rewarding, and the music and new additions such as your pet eagle are just amazing. THE MAP IS MASSIVE and I can see myself playing this game for at least 100 hours with all the content. Strap yourself in and transport yourself to Egypt... MY ONLY COMPLAINT about this game however is the lack of a fluent cover system. Without this, it makes stealth more difficult as you're never quite sure how well you're hidden. Aside from that, pick this game up.

    This is the first Assassin's Creed game I've played since Black Flag. The series for me has been hit and miss. I loved Black Flag, I thought AC 3 was garbage and felt really burned by the experience. As for Origins, I really like the game world and graphics, it's hard for me to put the controller down, which is a sign that it's pretty good. I haven't experienced any glitches yet, so this isn't a Unity-type fiasco. The story is a bit bland, but hopefully it will pick up as the game goes along. It's pure B movie sword and sandals pulp, complete with cheesy accents. In terms of game mechanics, it doesn't play or feel like a typical Assassin's Creed game.If I had to compare it to anything recent I'd say it feels more like the recent Tomb Raider game as well as Horizon Zero Dawn. All in all, pretty good.

    This is my first Assassins creed EVER, and I must say, i think I'm going to buy them for now on! A lot of my friends are telling me i chose a good one to make my first one. From what I'm hearing, this is the best Assassins creed yet, and based on what I'm seeing and the fun factor, I'm sure this comment is truthful! The open world is HUGE. And there is so much going on as far as wild animals and people roaming around. Seems to always be something fun to do. As far as graphics? Sharp and glorious! This is the best and most intense I've seen HDR yet on my sony 4k. Can only imagine what this game is going to look like in a week when the Xbox one X comes out! Overall? Highly recommend playing this weather you are a seasoned assassins player, or new to it like me! 5 stars easy.
