I'll start by saying I was never a big fan of the franchise.
With the exception of Black Flag, I found most of the games kind of silly, the gameplay boring and repetitive.
Long story short, in comes Origins, which changed a lot in the series for the better.
But then, then came this jewel of a game Odyssey.
This game is like no other AC game, it is light years better, ahead, above and beyond in every respect.
-The visuals are stunning. I could play this 400hours and marvel at its beauty.
-The mission are excellent, the story is mesmerizing.
-Attention to detail is incredible, there is so much history, mythology, everything was crafted by love in this game.
-Even the smallest side missions can be a real treat to play, nothing ever feels out of place or repetitive.
-The acting is Oscar worthy. I picked Kassandra which I would definitely recommend, as shes probably one of the top game characters ever. she's impeccable. She came to life and she's a badass.
-The addition of multiple choice replies was a game changer too.
They have continued heading toward the RPG genre, and it's exactly where AC should've been all along. It's clear now.
The closest game to compare to this one would be the Witcher 3 in my opinion.
Ubisoft came a long way with the franchise, they completely changed this game for the better. it started with origins and reached a wonderful peak with odyssey, I hope they keep going in this direction, the next AC if this one is anything to go by, might be one of the best games ever.
Rumors have it that the next Assassins Creed Will be called Ragnarok, will be set in English and Scandinavian empires, a Viking setting and time line, with quite a few additions, such as settlement management etc. Whatever it is, I am quite excited for it.
I hope they continue heading in this direction with this franchise.
On a minor note I was quite pleased with the addition of steam achievements.
Make sure you check out the expansions for odyssey as well, as they a
