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

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