Assassin's Creed Origins
Top Critic Average
Summary: Origins brings the franchise back from the brink after an extra year of development. The new RPG mechanics and refocused combat make this one of the most praised Assassin's Creeds in years.
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Genres: Action, RPG
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.
