And in the end Odyssey is a grind just to finish. Origins and my other favorite AC games were not a grind to finish, that's all that matters. Flashiest, but bottom of the barrel in terms of actual quality.

I got no problem with the grind myself but I get it. It’s definitely very grind heavy.
But «bottom of the quality in terms of quality»? Naval combat, animations, cutscenes, side quests, rpg elements, stealth, variation and amount of content is all bigger and better. What makes it worse than the rest (except for the grind)?

I have a big issue with a grind. I just hate it (for example jrpgs are definitely not for me) but in this game I see no grind. The only thing that isn't better than it was in previous games is historical accuracy of buildings in the cities (I prefer Unity and Syndicate here) but it is understandable because of the scale.

Ubisoft released a patch last week to adjust the main quest level requirements to help story progression

Origins was a grind. I got sick of it and finished it underlevelled

A grind because you need to complete some side quests in RPG style game to level up? Say it isn't so! They should just let you play the last mission when you boot up the game for the first time otherwise it's a grind!

Yeah because that’s what u want when you spend all that money on a game to breeze though it 5 hours right.

Still haven't played Odyssey, but Origins had an incredible world. Yes, it was grindy, but the world and story made it waaaay better. Not sure if Odyssey has characters like Caesar, Cleo or something like Pompeus story, but ship, exploration mode(!!!), tons of loot and gear look absolutely promising.

I disagree with this completely. I think origins is the best game in the whole series. I loved bayek and his motives for everything he did. I loved the representation of Egypt. I loved how even the side missions were usually worth doing narratively.

To me, odyssey is just a reskin version of origins with less compelling protagonists and much more of an unnecessary grind.

Agreed about Origins being the template for Odyssey.

Gardenia94d ago

I agree. Odyssey just came too soon after Origins. While they did introduce new things in Odyssey, it still feels like a re skin of Origins

First, I love Origins and Odyssey.

They basically took the Assisn's Creed idea and redid with a heavy Witcher 3 inspiration and went all-in on RPG elements.

I like Odyssey better because it is even more of an RPG and improved, imo, in every way from Origins.

Kassandra is my favorite in Odyssey and overall. I love her sassy attitude and the different wants to take conversations. It's not full-on Bioware or CDPR, but it's a nice change for the series.

In 10 years, we will look back and see where Assassin's Creed diverged from its first-gen before Origins, and its second-gen after Origins.

Elda94d ago

I like them both,Origins is the template for Odyssey.

Kabaneri94d ago (Edited 94d ago )

The combat system was much more fluid in Origins, although I must admit kicking enemies off ledges never gets old.
