When the writers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey decided to suddenly turn Kassandra into a housewife, they betrayed the person they’d spent so much time and care creating. They made her into a cutout for a hackneyed plot.

Episode 1 of Assassin's Creed Odyssey Legacy of the First Blade was stale and uneventful, leaving players underwhelmed. Fortunately, Episode 2 Shadow Heritage does a better job of not only raising the stakes of what's to come but ends on a high note. The varied mission structure, new weapon, and cliffhanger ending improve on the issues left behind by Hunted while also setting up for the finale.

Legacy of the First Blade's second episode, Shadow Heritage, is a familiar but engaging next chapter of Odyssey.

Shadow Heritage is slightly more fun to play than Hunted was, but some weird narrative decisions undo a lot of the character progression from the main campaign and totally expose the illusion of player choice

Yet, Shadow Heritage is more Assassin's Creed Odyssey and I'm absolutely going to take it as we wade through an AC-less 2019.

Two words can sum up Shadow Heritage, messy and forced.

With this second episode, The Legacy of the First Blade knifes all the roleplay Ubisoft spent dozens of hours to build in a three-hour short and highly questionable story. Even the great battleships and a brand new weapon wil not save Assassin's Creed Odyssey from this wrongly twisted cliffhanger that might disappoint most adventurers out there.
