Critic Reviews for Assassin's Creed Origins

Assassin's Creed Origins is a deep-dive into a truly stunning realization of ancient Egypt, with a rich series of cultures, genuine characters, and more mission variety than any other game in the series. The combat is challenging and thoughtful, and while the loot system doesn't match up to games like Destiny 2, there are enough different weapon types and enough enemy variety to keep you swapping between weapons, catered to the situation. The RPG elements encourage challenges of their own, and even despite a handful of bugs, I desperately wanted to keep playing.

Assassin's Creed returns and its vast and evocative Egypt inspires wonder - even if much in the game remains familiar.

A brilliant setting, new systems, and familiar features blend together for a strong prequel to the Assassin's Creed series.

A missed opportunity to reinvent the Assassin's Creed franchise, which offers only incremental improvement and too many old problems.

As beautiful as it is deadly, Origins' Egyptian playground is finally everything you wanted the Creed to be.

Expanded progression, open-world freedom, and a fascinating backdrop make for an enticing origin story

In essence, Assassin's Creed Origins is much the same game as the original Assassin's Creed, which came out a decade ago. It's a formula that people like to play, and it's certainly been honed and improved over the years. Origins is, then, undoubtedly the best iteration of this formula yet. But I yearn for a fresh approach and new ideas, something that astounds the senses as much as the wondrous world this game inhabits.
