Assassin's Creed Origins is one of the most engrossing and awe-inspiring experiences of the year.
I know it's subjective, but my god is this a knee-jerk reaction, unfounded, ridiculous score. Reusing assets from many years ago (same garbage Altair kills, no improvements whatsoever), same old blood spray from like AC II, same BS way they make weapons interact with enemy bodies (just making weapons enter and leave the digital space of the avatar..if that makes sense, hard to explain). Aside from downgrading combat to hack-and-slash health bar crap, they've done nothing with the game except reuse assets. Their settings are always phenomenal, but this is an 8 at best. This is clickbait to get people to open their eyes at the glaringly preposterous score.
Great game, but not a 10 imo.
It's not that good. One of the worst AC's ever IMO The story is very thin and there's too much emphasis on uninteresting side-quests
