For those who aren’t fans of RPGs, bad news – Assassin’s Creed is now a full-on RPG series and we can expect new entries to follow the formula laid down by Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
I enjoyed Origins Andrea sim having fun with Odyssey! Im glad they are taking the series in this direction but I understand that it may not be everyone's cup of tea.
I personally love it. It keeps most of what I've always loved about Assassin's Creed but improves on it and creates a deeper experience overall. It's like a really good RPG, but with amazing traversal that lets you explore the world in a way few games match. I also think it has pretty solid combat now. Not as good as action RPGs like Nioh and Dark Souls, but certainly better than most RPGs I've played. Beyond that I also love the historical settings. Even though it's clearly historical fiction and filled with fantasy many aspects of the games still have a basis in historical fact.
Yeah I enjoy the historical figures who pop up and while they are so massive it kinda blurs together for me, I have a great time. I put in 89 hours in Odyssey then took a month or so break and now I'm back in. Put in another 30 hours.
Very much enjoyed it too!
God damnit I hate auto correct or whatever is going on! What I typed was "I enjoyed Origins and I'm having fun with Odyssey!" For some reason when I type and, Andrea will pop up lol.
That's creepy...Andrea... Templars? Heh
@UltraNova lol yeah! It doesn't do it every time but it does and you can see it in my comments, that if I didn't double check and edit ole Andrea pops up a lot.
Somehow I am enjoying Odyssey quite a bit. The rpg route has served them well. It's like they took some good elements from Mass Effect and other rpgs and became an rpg itself. While Bioware games are losing their rpg touch.
I was shocked st how good of an rpg it turned out to be. Great choice for the franchise
Great news. Wasn't a big fan of Origins but I am absolutely loving Odyseey. Kassandra especially is a great character and the in game choices really make a difference for the series. Hopefully the next one, be it Vikings or in Japan will be even better. They've got a tough game to follow. Definitely my runner up GOTY slightly behind GOW.
I used to be annoyed that they were taking so long to take the series to Feudal Japan but now I'm glad that it's going to be after they changed the series into a full on RPG. It's going to have more depth and I'm going to enjoy it more.
Yeah, the choices. I was able to hook up with Roxana twice. First after the training and then I invited her to join my crew. And I was given the option to hook up with her again after the Barnabas nephew quest. I've researched it and no one ever talks about the 2nd hook up. Weird.
I don't understand why every games have to be turned into rpg to be honest.
Hmm don't play it then?
No, I am not saying it is not a great game, but I have just noticed that most action games have turned to much rpgs lately and it kind of detached you from the rythm. That is why I loved Re2 or devil may cry 5 way more than dark souls or nioh. This is my opinion and in no way am I saying these games are bad or anything, I own them and I am glad to. I am just saying that sometimes I just wished I would spend more time in the game itself than in the game menu😉😉
it's the new trend even FC5 new dawn is full on RPG with enemies level etc, thing about UBI is when they implement something in one game they use that same feature in rest of their games too
I really enjoyed the game, even though it was designed around MTs, and could be very overwhelming with map icons with samey-repeatey, objectives. The combat is fun, the story is solid (especially the role of the CoK) throughout the game, and the temples and sites were gloriously realized. Looking forward to the next one. Hope they take more time in development.
I love the game but the grind is real. Ive played 27 hours so far and im only level 19.
do some quests :P
Thats all i do is a shit ton of quests.
Do some side quests :p
Odyssey is a sloppy grindfest compared to Origins.
No no its not. Sorry it's just not
I want more RPG goodness so thank you Ubisoft
I like Oddissey but is too much repetitive.
I didn't play Odyssey but i did not enjoy origins. Game is beautiful and huge but too huge for it's own good too many boring side missions and the main story was nothing to write home about. If Odyssey is anything similar then im out.
Odyssey is larger with a lot more meaningless tasks scattered all over the map. The main story is locked behind doing those tasks too so yeah, you probably won't like it.
Yea I figured. Thanks for letting me know!
Was a good attempt at being an RPG. The ending left a lot to be desired though
It's a shame, there's already multiple established RPGs out there and Assassin's Creed was unique in its own right. Sure, it had missteps, but I miss it as purely an Action Adventure game.
I might try Odyssey. Origins is beautiful but I am having a tough time forcing myself to finish it. I mean I had to grind for 2 days just to change the look of his arm bands. It's a bit much.
Way better open world game than RDR2. ACO 9/10 - RDR2 6/10 IMO.
I was a kind of a hater towards AC series since Unity. Never planned to buy Origins, but was totally impressed with it after all. And even since Odyssey was technically less impressive than Origins for me, it's gameplay turned me into AC fan again. Definitely waiting for the next game. Hope it will be Vikings.
No surprise. Everything is going RPG now, or at least flirting with RPG (elements).
I love AC Odyssey! So much to do, and the best thing is, it’s not on line only! Great job Ubisoft!
