After a huge success of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ubisoft has finally launched another magnum opus in series, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It is the perfect reboot of the series with a new approach of stealth-action gameplay. Unlike, previous Assassin’s Creed games, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey features a more vibrant and dynamic environment. It emphasis more on role-playing gameplay where players can choose between the dialogue which directly effects the story development. First time in Assassin’s Creed franchise we have seen a player getting intimate with non-playable characters.
The game set in the era of war between Athens and Sparta for dominion over the Greek world’s throne. You can portray the story of Alexios or Kassandra during war times according to your choice. This is the first time Assassin’s Creed franchise is offering independent choice to play the whole story with a man or woman.The quality of the game is superior to its predecessors which make it the best in the series so far.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review Gamespot
“Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s ambition is admirable, which is reflected in its rich attention to detail for the era and its approach to handling the multi-faceted narrative with strong protagonists at the lead. While its large-scale campaign–clocking in at over 50 hours–can occasionally be tiresome, and some features don’t quite make the impact they should, Odyssey makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world, and it’s a joy to venture out and leave your mark on its ever-changing setting.”

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review Polygon
“Its geography is a beautiful montage of sunbaked islands, war-ravaged towns and towering ancient cities. From the brand-spanking new Parthenon to the tiniest butterfly, Odyssey provides a place of intense visual pleasure.”
“Respect has been paid to historical Greece at this time, to its politics, culture, mythology, sexual norms, architecture, religion, humour, philosophy, art and morality.”
“Most of all, the people in this game are engaging and amusing. I loved hanging out at a symposium, debating philosophy with Socrates and flirting with Alcibiades. I loved making friends with my absurdly religious ship’s captain, with a no-nonsense pirate, with a devoted child.”Says Colin Campbell

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review Trustedreviews
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is another accomplished entry in the long-running open-world series. By expanding upon the blueprint established by Origins, Ubisoft has crafted an experience that feels brave, huge and utterly gargantuan. Seeing everything it has to offer could take hundreds of hours, even if much of its side content feels superfluous, offering little more than small droplets of experience and equipment you’ll never use.”
