I want to clarify that before I started playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, I stopped playing games from the sequence after Black Flag when in 2014 Ubisoft almost simultaneously liberated two full-fledged Assassin’s Creed tournaments. I realized that I was sick of playing the same game here. After year and decided to take a break from the line, the release of Assassin’s Creed origins looked like the right moment to return to this series, but heaven Assassin’s Creed 2. As an example, I’ve decided to wait until Ubisoft well-polished brand-new mechanics in the next recreation before climbing back in when OD se came out one year ago it searched exactly like video games. I’ve wait here all this time. The establish of archaic Greece ability to choose the protagonist even bigger turn towards the RPG genre. All this sounded extremely intriguing, and when I started representing, I insured that my first impressions are appropriate. What the se feels like a completely different game that has almost no connection to older Assassin’s Creed names, but I can’t say for certain: is it a good or a bad thing? It’s just different. The main difference between Odyssey and previous plays in the serial is the fact that it’s an perfectly big tournament age-old Assassin’s Creed sports had an open-world extremely, but the planned immensity in Odyssey is just insane. It took me one hundred seventy five hours to visit every region and complete all existing searches without set DLCs for a single-player game with a linear structure and without conduct contemporary. This is a really impressive figure. The only single-player games that I’ve toy for more was fallout 3, and that was only thanks to amazing mod support by the community. The different question is: was it really justified to make such a monstrous world? Well, if you love the ancient Greek setting and enjoys a virtual tourism vistum, then quest will give you more than enough to satisfy your heat for autobiography and travel. There are dozens of regions with their own unique landmarks. You will not fluster kriti with famous and I was exploring every new area , not even for quests, but simply to discover a new cool-looking residences and “re just trying” take beautiful screenshots in some regions. You can also find a unique seek courses that are not connected to the main story. Personally, I think that Flores was the best in this regard, nonetheless, impelled quest for this region should get conjured, because they were one of my favorite moments of this play. However, if you are not interested in the historical and tourism aspect of Odyssey, then not everything in this game is as good as I hoped it would be, as I said, apparently moved very far into the RPG genre territory. The hand-picked of the primary character, leveling up sciences, weapons and armor arti, even the choice, with upshots in accents, say if other ever, since that you could have imagined. But that’s not all Ubisoft gravely decided to surpass Bioware and computed 19 characters that are available as a romantic interest for the musician and those tales not locked to your exponent option, so you can adore all of them as much as you want without any restrictions. I hope so, but this attempt to make a full-fledged RPG game is significantly lacking in depth. The main troubles are auto leveling and paucity of diversity in antagonist natures. There is not much point in leveling up when the game’s world forever flakes with you and without interest. In threats, 95 % of battles in Odyssey, travelling by the same scenario over and over again, the combat itself is not so bad. The abilities are very useful and allow you to choose your own playstyle, but after a while it starts to feel repetition and contends. Only can’t surprise you anymore ranks and multitudes are increasing, but there is no real difference in strength, because everything always remains on the same level. Increasing the difficulty exclusively artificially increases the length of the fight. So here is my advice to you: do not hesitate to adjust the difficulty and outer rank provides to constitute video games more enjoyable to play, since there are no achievements related to difficulty. Levels in this game Odyssey also has additional feature like adventurers and fight between Athens and Sparta, but Zeus, gameplay machinists were not told out well and instead of adding to fun, they only waste your time. The mercenary arrangement is kind of same to the Nemesis system. From pall of Mordor, there are mercenaries of various types of ranks and tiers that are roaming around the game’s macrocosm. Just like you, and if you start to commit crimes and onslaught frontiers, then those Mariners will try to kill you in order to get a bounty for your honcho. But developers slightly over time with the frequency of those recompense hunter onrushes and impelled them terribly harassing, and such forces you to play not the course you want, but to go for a full stealth walkthrough, because if you act without anyone note, you then a payoff for Your head will not be assigned, and bonu hunters won’t bother. You original captivate structure reverberates intriguing at first, but in fact it doesn’t start much impression in participating in these activities either because wages for capturing the region are too meaningless and it’s impossible to take all regions under the control of one clique, because fields are perpetually swapping Ownership between Athens and Sparta, even without player intervention. As a upshot, all those gameplay car-mechanics are much easier to ignore because they don’t lead anywhere and it’s a shame, because if you had to actually compete with other mercenaries for contracts or if you could have fleet one of the sides in this war to complete victory, Then it could have added immensely to the gameplay loop. Not everything is good with the central storyline as well. Personally, I’ve chosen Cassandra and, in my opinion, she’s a great protagonist, probably one of very good in the series. There are also a couple of interesting secondary characters. For example, I experienced a lot the conversations with Socrates and Barnabas. I must examine not only her oaths but my own soul as well. I know nothing, so how could I be called wise have to do with being locked up? I feel my day here and this contest may facilitate me find the answer. I will be fine trust me. There are also some good times in the main storyline and sometimes dialogue alternatives really have serious consequences, but Ubisoft didn’t manage to properly finish the primary storyline. For some reason, mine search was divided into three sprigs, about discovering their own families, destroying the religion of cosmos, who are the main villains of this game and ceilings in Atlantis. In theory, family and cult forks are connected, but in the end after we finally deal with family matters and find out who really was the leader of the cult, everyone suddenly stops caring about it and you open the attainment for completing the game alone. Who is option to start a new sport, and this is weird because personality of the cult leader should be a shocking revelation. Moreover, when the exponent enters the faiths lair, he seems to be unaware of the leaders through name and appears scandalized, although without this knowledge, it’s impossible to start the last adventures of this discipline and to make everything even creepy. In the end, you have a choice of how to deal with a calculator. You fucking kill him, give him know or flirt with him, although that kiss doesn’t make any sense at all. Yeah Ubisoft certainly tried to catch up an or take power in everything. The last third main crusade chapter about Atlantis ended up being straight-up reviling. In fact, this is real ending of the game, because it has those rare instants when developers suddenly remember about the modern occasion. Stolen problem is that it literally just unexpectedly ends in the middle of the storey and to find out how to end it. Ubisoft offers you to buy an expensive DLC, as if all these micro events with boosters and barks were not sufficient. Speaking about micro events, since I systematically cleared all regions of the map, I obviously didn’t knowledge any problems in going through the main store line. There are always more than enough resources for modernizes, with the only exception of the last levels of ship modernizes, but still selling resources and XP boosts ters in a single-player game is just ridiculous. Ubisoft also sells all sorts of cosmetic things like mare scalps and armor adjusts and in theory they can be obtained it free of charge in the reiterates of the Olympian in-game store, but in reality collecting a full set of armor through the store is almost impossible because the List of available parts is very limited and it haphazardly alters every week , not to mention how difficult it is to get a special currencies that used to buy things in this store. And, of course, you can also try your blessing with pillage caskets, but the chances of getting something good from them is an absolute joke. I get it, you want musicians to buy these skins with real money, but then do not create the impression, since it can be obtained for free in order to brush off criticism about microtransactions in a full-priced game by telling, but you can acquire them free of charge. If you demand I’m so sick of this [, __ ], as you may see, there is a lot of things that you can criticize census game, but at the same time I can’t say that all they say is a bad activity. The gameplay is so well balanced that, even despite all the undeniable shortcomings, this sport still spawns you want to come back and play it more. It was not really managed to create a true-life fast-food of the gaming. You realize that you are doing the same thing for hours and can waste this time on better activities, but this whole system only works for an entire walk through. Maybe it’s all because I like traveling around the games world and I was clearing all these goddamn question – labels with outposts and chests somewhat in the background of my journey, and this tour was more or less smooth thanks to the quality of the PC version, or they Say movements extremely well with keyboard and mouse, it has tons of options to tweak, and I didn’t know-how an Bax or accidents during my whole dally true accomplishment is more or less fine. You won’t be able to play with high-pitched locateds at 4k 60 fps on five years old hardware, but achieving stable framerate at 1080 p should not be a problem, but remember this game is CPU bound. I was playing it for so long. I’Ve managed to prove this myself when I am great at my CPU, I went eight added FPS average, which is a huge difference at 4k settlement. I can imagine that difference will be even more observable at a lower resolve, so have in mind that it might be the time to finally upgrade your CPU. If you can over all technically wise Assassin’s Creed. Odyssey is great. On PC developers made a lot of mistakes, but they likewise did a few cases things right. For example, I really liked the fact that the look of the armor are subject to change at any time , not very realistic, but it’s old, the ancient trouble of the RPG genre when, instead of cool-looking armor, you had to wear some rags just because they better stats. I too liked that decorators thought about situations when, if you loaded quest spot before actually accepting the quest in most cases, you don’t need to return to this location and can accomplish the quest straight off. What I say has enormous potential and if you be soft, continues to refine this new gameplay concept, then the next activity in the series will be something indeed glorious. Well, as for others say itself, it’s a well-made journey, but another excellent sport. The unsatisfying engine poorly thought out mechanics and overall repetitiveness or gameplay botch it. My final impressions about this play, but if you like, the ancient Greek setting and traveling around a huge world in which you can disappear for hundreds of hours, then pilgrimage will be an excellent choice on the next auction and be assured to get a bandit with season. Pass so he’ll get the full form of the game. I can’t say anything about the quality of DLCs because after 175 hours in the basic version of video games, I’m honestly a little burned out with Odyssey and precisely want to finally switch to something else and perfectly not so big. Last opinion. If you appraise your time, then do not try to reach 100 % finish in Odyssey.
