Assassin's Creed: Origins Review | Quarter to Three

Tom Chick - "Oddly enough, if you accept that maybe this lovely ancient Egypt is worth admiring just a little longer, Assassin’s Creed: Origins eases into a sort of post-game retiree stage. There are a few puzzles baked into the map and a handful of collectibles to complete. There are rumors of four beasties that need killing, like the Spanish treasure galleons at the end of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. You can visit all the question marks on the map to reveal locations of no gameplay consequence, but they’ll probably be plenty pretty. I recommend spending some time in the desert, because…well, I don’t want to spoil anything, but I’ll say that Silicon Knights would be proud. The traversal is certainly gratifying, so why not traverse some more? Why not parkour around some of history’s least parkourable geography or ride a horse with cruise control and a built-in bird’s eye view of some of the loveliest scenery you’ll see in a videogame? Why not think of Assassin’s Creed: Origins as a lovely and chill sightseer sim? It only took about forty hours of game tax to get here, but you’ve earned it."

ah clickbaiting again.
Quarter to Three is a joke of a website.

you can't rate Assassin's Creed Blackflag 10/10, Assassin's Creed III 10/10 and Assassin's Creed Origins 4/10. It doesn't make any sense.

Here are some other bogus reviews from them to get the clicks:

Lego City Undercover: 10/10 (Meta 80)
Halo 4: 2/10 (Meta 87)
Forza Horizon: 2/10 (Meta 86)
Company of Heroes: 2/10 (Meta 80)
Journey: 4/10 (Meta 92)
Beyond: Two Souls: 2/10 (Meta 70)

"you can't rate Assassin's Creed Blackflag 10/10, Assassin's Creed III 10/10 and Assassin's Creed Origins 4/10"

Considering he operates on a like/dislike grading, why not? There were obviously things he adored in AC III and IV that weren't there in the Origins.

Comparing him to the critic average suggests what he's been all along: a contrarian. That shouldn't disqualify his opinion.
