What's the game about?

I don't think that the Assassin's Creed series needs to be introduced to anyone. It's a brand that includes more than 20 small and large hits released over the last 13 years. The latest production in the series, subtitled Odyssey, takes players to ancient Greece, where, as the exiled grandson or granddaughter of the legendary King Leonidas, they get a chance to get their family back. The story mainly deals with a series-specific conflict between the Assasins and the Templars. During story quests, we make decisions that also impact the fate of our loved ones. In this installment, players can also choose dialogue options.

What can you do for so many hours in a game?

In Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, we have the chance to travel through almost the entire historical area of ancient Greece. We can do this on horseback and on foot, using the parkour system known in this series. Players can also sail.So many ways of moving allow you to explore a vast world in which, in addition to the long story, you can have side tasks and various additional activities, such as puzzles, exploring tombs, or hunting legendary beasts. This production, compared to other sandbox games of this type, is distinguished mainly by the enormity of the content waiting for us.

What was the reception?

Odyssey is certainly not a bad game, but it has a few elements that don't make it stand out from similar titles. The game focuses on the amazing world of ancient Greece, which impresses with atmosphere and beautiful setting. For many, exploration is enjoyable and rewarding, and side activities can be engaging. There are, however, complaints about poorly conceived tasks or a character level system that forces you to grind. The perception of this game often depends on a particular player, but undoubtedly a large part of them have had a great time here.
