Re: Assassins Creed: Odyssey - 10/05/2018

Well to be honest i think i got into the AC series rather late. I played the first game for about 10 mins when it originally came out and was not too impressed. The game that got me into the series was Black Flag, which i loved, and then have thoroughly enjoyed Syndicate, Origins and Odyssey. The games have clearly improved with each iteration to the point where i love the worlds they create, the characters that inhabit them and the game mechanics which make them such a pleasure to play. Odyssey truly is a masterpiece game and the DLC so far have all been fantastic. This is an occasion where i feel the Season pass has been worth the money, especially when you compare it to games that simply give skins or one or two different weapons as DLC for Seasons passes.

I would highly recommend giving these games a second chance or some more of your time if you have drifted from them. They are the kind of games that the more you play they more they give back in thrills and enjoyment.

Origins had two great DLCs as well! The second one was especially good!

I got to get back to. I was loving it, but little overwhelming with stuff to do. Took a break and been playing FPS since. I got it all and will definitely get back soon. Maybe after Rage 2. Would be nice break until Wolfenstein: Youngblood and DOOM: Eternal and Borderlands 3, of course, comes out later this year...

I've been on a long break. I was getting way too into the game. I would start playing at 9AM and then all of a sudden it would be 6PM.... I was about to start the Minotaur quest before I took a break. Looking at this thread, I've been taking a break since the end of January.... It might be time to pick it back up tomorrow.

Well only had about 30 mins to play last night, so not much of a chance to check out the Underworld environment. It does look very nicely done and looking forward to explore it. This is the kind of thing that would be amazing in VR with sheer scale of things.

So right off the bat you have to fight Cereus, which is alluded to at the end of Episode 1. Its not that tough once you figure out his routine. Its OK, looks nice, but not game changing.

Hopefully have more of a chance to play it tonight and really explore.

So yesterday i completed everything the new DLC had to offer. Very enjoyable, and the one thing that has shined throughout this game is how it presents stories that are very mature in their content. By that i don't mean offering graphic sex and violence, but rather stories that are more realistic and which show the nature of humanity. This game has proven to be outstanding and i only wish other companies spent as much time giving as much with DLC.

Back again. This past couple of days I ran through the last DLC (Fate of Atlantis Episode 3) and really enjoyed it. Again not much of a challenge, but ended the story well. Having said that, I am currently at 99% completion for all the game and DLC and see one challenge left to complete, which is not going to be available until next month, so game hasn't fully ended yet.

This series has gone from strength to strength and the open world, story and fight mechanics have improved greatly every time. For me this was the game of the year, especially as the developers provided a lit of great support for it.

Bring on the next Assassins Creed.

I'm about halfway through the 2nd part of the Atlantis DLC.
I'm enjoying it, but a bit of burnout is settling in. Though I have put in almost 200 hours into the game, so there's that too!

I know what you mean. I have spent a lot if time on this game, and one of the reasons I kept going back to other games after completing each DLC.

Its looking like a couple of the broken missions might have been fixed in the last update. I had two that could not completed due to a glitch and got one of them finished this week.

Well, I finally killed this game the other day, not platinum, but close enough.
All DLC finished, and the final tales of Greece mission dropped yesterday, so that was the last bit of content for the game (I think).

Final stats: level 80, 165 hours played. Phew!
