Assassin’s Creed Odyssey doesn’t stray from Origins’ formula, and I’m okay with that | Entertainium

"Assassin’s Creed Origins was a refreshing take on Assassin’s Creed last year, and if the demo I’ve played at E3 is any indication, it looks like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will keep that streak going." - Eduardo Reboucas, Entertainium

Haven't played origins yet, waiting on a $20 or less price tag. But it'll be the first assassins creed game I've played since dipping my toes into 2 and not finding it fun at all.

I definitely recommend playing Origins as soon as you're able to get it. It's really different from the other games!

Yeah someone told me since I liked witcher, origins would be right up my alley. Assassins creed always struck me as a series I should be into but just never grabbed me. Syndicate in particular is one of my favorite settings for fictional tales, but just couldn't bring myself to give it a go.

Doesn't stray? Its reskined from origins. They haven't learnt their lesson at all.

That's not exactly true. Odyssey and Origins were developed concurrently. Please read my article. =)

It has most things in common with Origins, but it does have quite a few improvements to the stealth and combat mechanics, as well as the inclusion of naval exploration and combat, and an RPG-like dialog system and branching storyline. That's more changes than you get in most series from game to game.

Let's be honest, how different is one Uncharted, Battlefield, Batman Arkham or Tomb Raider game from the others of the same series? The answer is, not much. It's normal for games in a series to be similar to each other. That's what makes them a series.

Not at all. For me Assassin's Creed Origins was an amazing experience. One of my favorite games of the generation to be honest.
