I should to say that the specs do have me a bit worried as to the overall quality of this game. As we’re in the age of 4K, so I hope it looks like a 2017 game and not something from two or more years ago. That being said, playing at 1080p and 60fps should look and play amazing.
The difficulty is pretty amazing actually! The enemies become extremely smart in combat and increasingly precise in detecting you! It’s very good to add to the experience of the game compared to the previous AC Games! It’s nice to kill a load of guys without them even knowing what happened. I’m actually surprised by the scale of this game. When I first saw the pyramids in the distance, I thought it was just a background environment. But I was really surprised after sync a Fast Travel point, and then being able to run (for what seemed like forever) all the way up to them.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is actually really good Ubisoft. Big map and actually not full of collectibles but actual tombs and secrets. Ubisoft nailed this game, I wasn’t really a fan of the fighting system when it wasn’t released but it seems that they actually improved the combat. It looks much better now. The combat system needed a change and this was a vast improvement. They have been trying to ease into it since unity and then decided to completely revamp it. I do agree though that it does feel like a completely different game, but in my opinion, it is for the better. I think the quest system is great and will add a lot more play time.
From what I can see they took quite a bit from the Witcher III Wild Hunt, which isn’t that bad since that’s an excellent game. It’s a lot like Zelda, Witcher and dark souls combined. I honestly think this game just revived Assassin’s Creed.
My problem with Bayek’s story is that I’m bored with Assassins becoming assassins for personal reasons. The one thing I liked about Black Flag’s story was that Edward came to the realization that there are things out there bigger than himself. He needed to be destroyed to understand that, but he came to the realization on his own, not out of revenge. Characters like Ezio, Arno, and Bayek do it for personal reasons and it isn’t necessarily bad, but Bayek is supposed to be a founding member of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.
I’m glad to say that I’m loving this game. It’s a really nice change up to the series. Though, I think the story is kind of sloppy, not bad, but sloppy. Origins generally is a good step in the right direction. For the next one, they should focus on making the story great, polish the fighting mechanics, facial animations/voice acting, and keep up the innovation train, and we’ll be getting some really good games in my opinion! I really love the setting too, I wish that we could stay in ancient times for a couple games longer. We could go back to Rome (which would be awesome), ancient Greece (also awesome), Persia (though, we’d end up with a bunch of “Assassin’s Creed became Prince of Persia” jokes).
Origins being a trilogy is solely dependent on how well Bayek is received by the community. Personally, I would love it. Unpopular opinion- Origins is the best AC game in the series hands down. Best story was obviously Ezio, but all things considered, Assassin’s Creed Origins is the clear winner.
Being stealthy with the blade and bow is the way to play origins, the new combat system is amazing but getting into a sword fight with multiple enemies is a lot harder than it used to be! I wish they kept some of the parkour from unity though. Although not perfect, this is still far better than Syndicate and Unity. This is what you get when you don’t get carried away with the money. A much better game.
This game from one side is very impressive by its size, I just love to explore and the side quests are not that bad. But the one thing that is bad is the quality. They should have let QA do more work because from the start of the game it feels unfinished. For example, I had my first assassination from the target list of the main story to kill, and when I have arrived at the scene, he was already dead. Maybe I have killed him before when I free roamed. But it felt unnatural to come to a place two days later and suddenly get a scene when I just killed him (the “rest in peace” scenes from AS games).
Bayek, he is more relatable, the thing I like about him there is a soft side of him, a fatherly figure. I see in the cut-scene he is more peaceful when he sees a kid. Sometimes he is funny.
In the beginning, I wasn’t so sure about the game. I liked it but wasn’t raving about it. But the more I play it, the more I want to play it. The more I think about it, the more I like it. There still are some similarities to the previous games but there are a ton of new mechanics which is so fun to play.
The game is great. The fighting mechanics are a nice change and you don’t die that much as long as you spam dodge and use your shield for arrows. Plenty of side quests. You can spend 30 + hours in like a third of the area of the game with all the side quests, hidden treasures, enemy bases etc. All in all the entire game is probably a good 100 + hours of entertainment to finish everything up.
When I first started playing I was disappointed at the change in controls out of nowhere. I also was mad that after 10 years they decided to change the map. But then, I got used to the controls and the map being out of the bottom corner gives the game a much more immersive feel. I 100% believe Assassin’s Creed Origins has completely revived the series.
