Here is an excerpt from our review for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey where we gave the game a 4.5/5 score. “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes the excellent blueprint laid down by Origins and expands on it. It’s more dynamic than any game in the series and gives the very best modern, open-world RPGs a run for their money when it comes to the sheer amount of content and level of quality found across the board. Mileage may vary on the story front, but when it comes to gameplay, Odyssey is one the best Assassin’s Creed games to date.”
