Superb voice acting, rapturous music, and the return of sea shanties make Assassin's Creed Odyssey sound like the stuff of legend.
If you thought AC Origins looked good, then you're in for a pleasant surprise, because Odyssey looks even better. It's almost like going to Ancient Greece for reals. Almost.
Various refinements to the mechanics introduced with Origins make for a smoother experience overall, with slightly more nuance to the combat and a range of additional abilities to experiment with. There are a few teeny, tiny issues, mostly revolving around traversal when you're in a panic situation, but these seldom crop up.
A colossal open world stuffed to the gills with quests, secrets and enjoyable naval warfare. You'll ride for miles on your faithful horse Phobos, soaking it all in for countless hours. It's mostly well-polished too, save for the occasional bug that crops up now and then, They're mercifully rare, however.
A list that adds extra impetus to dive headfirst into everything that Ancient Greece has to offer. There are some genuinely exciting activities tucked away too that will only emerge if you invest the time and effort to dig them up. Great stuff.
