Video games have always been one of my favourite ways to relax. I tend to become obsessively involved in a game until I’ve completed the story. Often, if it’s an RPG (Role Playing Game), I’ll play through multiple times to explore every aspect, and decision my character can make within the game.
I’ve played many Ubisoft games. I particularly enjoy both their Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed series.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is their latest release, and I’ve played it constantly since the early release came out at the beginning of October.
It’s a stunningly beautiful game.
I’ve completed the main campaign, playing as Kassandra. I’ll likely do it for a second time as her brother Alexios.
The intrigue, the gameplay, all the side quests, and the massive map.
It’s the Assassin’s Creed I’ve always wanted to play. I’ve played and enjoyed AC III, Black Flag, Rogue, Syndicate, and Origins. None of them perfect. Odyssey for me is right at the top, with Origins a close second. They’ve progressed with both the gameplay and the character interaction.
Is it perfect? Definitely not.
But I’m immensely enjoying playing in a way I haven’t in a while.
