    Great execution, but RPGs are a specific taste

    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.

    Pros and cons to this release

    Odyssey suffers from many of the issues that plagued previous Assassin's Creed titles. There were several times that the character got "stuck" in walls or rocks and you cannot get him out and either have to restart the game or wait for him to die. Character voices overlap one another during conversations. Many of the missions feel repetitive. Battles with some legendary animals are much harder than their level indicates and other animals are constantly attacking when trying to beat a legendary animal. Most battles with captains result in Mercenaries joining in to make the fights nearly impossible. Otherwise, the gameplay is fun though the new controls for battles are a little complicated compared to previous titles. Scenes and backgrounds are beautifully rendered. Map is huge and there's a lot of things to do. You'll definitely get your money's worth out of Odyssey.

    Best AC I've Played Yet.

    I stopped playing the AC series years ago because it is usually the exact same game in a different time period or setting and super repetitive. Odyssey seems to take a step in the right direction, while still quite repetitive, the story is inviting and fun, the graphics are good, and I like playing through with Kassandra. My only 2 gripes with this game is that like all AC's, it is extremely long. I've put in over 5 hours into the game so far and I've virtually made no progress. In this case, less would've definitely been more. My second gripe is the combat system. Fresh off of playing the new Spider-Man game, the combat on AC feels super sluggish and clunky. Overall, this is a good game and it will hold me over until RDR2 comes out.

    Origins over Odyssey

    Odyssey has so much similarity to Origins. Can take alot of good from that comment, but if you played Origins 100%. Tough to say this is a must play. If you have not played Origins. Then give this a play. If you got lucky before the holiday at half off. Then you definately made a good purchase and will enjoy. Time consuming tasks. 60% satisfying and 40% repetitive. Sure for many being able to choose man or woman is a positive. Cannot see dialog being that much different for such a long game. Ship play is the best available. Feels good boarding a ship. All in all ready to see what Ubisoft offers next in AC series.

    If you are a loyal AC player, then you will definitely like this game. Graphics are good, story line is decent, and the Ancient Greece setting is just nice. However, I think there's a little bit too much to do and they are all the same thing. So if you have a lot of time to invest in one game, then that won't matter. It's also similar to AC Origins. The cool thing is that there's 2 different characters to choose from, and the story lines are different. I haven't finished Alexios' story, but after I do I will play Cassandra's story.

    Have you ever played an Assassin's Creed game and thought, "Hey, I wish there was more stuff to do!" Then this is the game for you. It has so much more stuff to do than normal Assassin's Creed games. Also, you play a SPARTAN. Not one of those lame space marines, but an ACTUAL SPARTAN. The kind that kicks an NPC in the gut and yells, "THIS IS SPARTA!!!" (Editor's note: This does not actually happen in the game.) Regardless, good job Ubisoft. My thirst for assassinating and going on odysseys was satisfactorily quenched with this game.

    Great game so far with a huge open world. It may be slightly to much RPG style for me. Certain things like outfits we're better in Origins to me. But overall the game looks great, Some parts feel like your grinding to level up which brings me to my only issue the XP boosters. They sale them in game. Yes you can play it without them but I feel they should've just been integrated into the gameplay from the start. It plays like the last one and has a huge amount of content I'm 50 hours in and haven't finished it yet.

    I've played several titles in this series, and this one is as enjoyable as the others. One aspect that is new to this game over its predecessors is that the world auto-levels to your player level as you progress -- hence there's no areas where you are considerably over-powered. The map is huge (seems to be the biggest yet) and will likely take quite some time to explore all of it. On a downside, bounty quests do start to feel a bit repetitive if you do many of them. Overall, good game...

    AC: Origins, but Bigger

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey is really similar to the previously entry, Origins, a game I enjoyed but started to get tired of as the endgame grind kicked in. Odyssey is the same, but larger. The graphics are incredible, I enjoyed the addition of dialogue trees and the mercenary system is cool. The level grinding (present in Origins) is not, and restricts movement on the map. I would have enjoyed a leveling system that wasn't as harsh (enemies just two levels above you are absurdly difficult).

    This is a MASSIVE open world game, with tons of content that will keep you engaged for several dozen hours at the very least. The parkour elements allowing you to scale almost any surface are a joy to play, and for those who like to overload their quest log, this is a great choice. Mission variety gets a tad repetitive, and the world itself doesn't seem as "alive" as Skyrim (or RDR2, which is one of the only things I like better about the cowboy simulator), but it's still a blast to play.

    I always like assassins creed with my favorite (storyline wise) being the 2 series and (combat wise) origins. I can honestly say they improved on on a lot of the great stuff that was introduced in origins. The only thing I don’t like is the block/parry system. I just find pressing the left/right button simultaneously redundant and would like to go back to it being one, thank you. I am currently 50 hours in and still haven’t finished the game. I appreciate a long game ac: odyssey does that.

    I've played every Assassin's Creed game on console and completed this game as well. I wish they would have trimmed some of the hours from the game as the forts etc. can get repetitive. I also would have preferred a better ending to two of the main plotlines. However, the minute to minute beats on missions and the control you have over who your character is. Overall, I enjoyed my experience and would buy it again

    It's an AC game with a HUGE open world. There's a lot to do, but as always with AC games it can almost feel like too much. Too many side quest options, too many tasks, etc.. The world and characters are great. Several surprises throughout the story. Glitchy at times and in weird ways (characters threatening and saying voice lines like they were fighting you but just sitting there) climbing strangeness. But it's an absolute BLAST.

    Yes, it’s another Assassins Creed. But more of the same is not always a bad thing. I like the addition of being able to side with one of two armies as being able to scale enemies up your level, to keep things challenging... especially being an explorer like myself. All in all a very good addition to the series. Worth purchasing especially if $30 or less.

    I've played each and every Assassin's Creed since 2007 and, while the series has had ups and downs, I always found them fun and intriguing. Fortunately, Odyssey is a worthwhile entry that shares a lot with last year's Origins and ramps up the rpg elements. It's by far the biggest game in the series in terms of map size, gameplay elements, and time investment, and because of that, it offers an incredible amount of value.

    Exploring Ancient Greece as either Kassandra or Alexios, choice at the beginning of the game, you are a Spartan born Mercenary that begins your own odyssey while navigating the waters around Greece and the war between Athens and Sparta. This game is a long adventure through a large world with many side and optional quest to complete or ignore. Some of the side quests will allow you to strengthen the crew of your ship giving upgrades.

    Attempting to ride the exciting success of Origins, Ubisoft delivered Odyssey. The gameplay is intriguing, the two characters also add a new layer of fun that I haven't seen since the original Mass Effect trilogy. But ultimately I grew bored. None of the characters really stand out like others in the series' deep history. it's worth a try if you can pick it up on sale.

    Got this one for my little sister as graduation gift. She was excited just having it, and after a short bit of play, I am told it is great and to give it 4 stars. I've only watched a little play, but it looks beautiful. The game play seems on par with the previous titles, though she has barely scratched the surface after only a few days.

    This is prob the best Assassin's credd I've played in years. They use alot of stuff from other games to try and give the players over 100 hours of stuff to do. Unfortunately the MC is not that great and kinda dull. And the AC brand is starting to lose a bit of recognizability with all these changes. But it's still a good game and will keep anyone interested for a long time.

    An awesome AC game! Not my favorite in the series, not by a long shot but still a fun game none the less. The story is great and being able to pick your character is a nice touch by Ubisoft but there’s a few things I would’ve done differently. The mechanics look archaic and the overall landscape visually could be better. But the story is fun and enticing.
