Final Thoughts

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is a must-have game of 2018. I think everyone who has a passing interest in history should pick it up or at least try it, and that especially goes for any AC fans. Ubisoft has created magic on a massive scale, infusing a world with incredible visuals and awe-inspiring ancient cities that make you feel like you're living through history itself.

Combat is fun, intuitive and actively engaging, and the RPG mechanics are robust to ensure more meaningful gameplay experiences. Everything in Odyssey feeds itself and your time never feels like its spent in vain--even if you spend a few hours just roaming around the Aegean.

Once again Ubisoft has one-upped itself and created something special that redefines the series while pushing its own skillset ever higher. We don't know where the franchise will go next, but if it's anything like Odyssey, I'm sure it'll be absolutely amazing.
