Assassin’s Creed series has seen its ups and downs over the last few years. The franchise was becoming redundant ut Origins changed plenty for the better. Most of us have a love, hate relationship with the series at this point. Among us, we also have Cyberpunk’s composer, Marcin Przybyłowicz, who shared his feelings about the franchise.
He expressed his love for the series but said it’s “not always bells and whistles.” Over the years Assassin’s Creed had underwhelming entries namely Assassin’s Creed Unity, Syndicate, AC3, and spin-offs like Liberation.
Lately I did have some, I don’t want to say, “crisis” but like with a lover’s relationship it’s not always bells and whistles. There are ‘up’s and there are ‘down’s. So, I just bought, actually, the last one, Assassin’s Creed Origins. I’ve heard from basically everyone that it’s, like, Assassin’s Creed done right. That they went back to the roots. They did expand on good ideas, they did repair stuff that was not that successful or was not that great in previous entries. So, I’m hoping that when I finish Origins I will be able to say that “Oh yeah, we’re up again.”
Well, if he’s looking at Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to restore his faith in the series, he won’t be disappointed. Reviews embargo is lifted and as we can judge by the scores, the game is simply amazing. Our very own Omar Majeed gave it an 8.8 in his extensive review of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. If our review doesn’t help his faith, surely hanging from Zeus’ penis in Odyssey will.
