Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Though the main story suffers because of it, Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a remarkably massive RPG held together by a web of satisfying pursuits.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey's open-world adventure through ancient Greece is a gorgeous thrill, and the best the series has ever been.
Colossal in size, lavish in scope, Odyssey feels like a series landmark and Ubisoft's biggest ever game.
The best Assassin's Creed has been in years, but also a game bloated far beyond the realms of common sense – especially while the core gameplay remains so unexceptional.
Perfects everything Origins did and enhances them in ways you never thought an Assassin's Creed game could. Odyssey has it all.
Infiltration, combat, and exploration are all fun in the moment. However, the repetitive objectives and lack of crafted moments make the gameplay blur together as the hours pass
For all its faults, Assassin's Creed Odyssey is one of the best explorable game worlds yet made.
While its large-scale campaign--clocking in at over 50 hours--can occasionally be tiresome, and some features don't quite make the impact they should, Odyssey makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world, and it's a joy to venture out and leave your mark on its ever-changing setting.
Odyssey takes Origins' formula and expands it to the point of nearly breaking.
