Ubisoft are making the point that this is an action RPG. Maybe rpg-lite but hopefully this leads to improved storytelling. The combat still looks a bit clunky in the E3 build.

I think it looks like a re-skinned Origins, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as origins was the best AC in a while. The setting looks good and some of the new mechanics will keep it fresh enough. I still think they might've been better off sticking to a release every 2 years, but we're back and 1 a year so burn out on the series is likely.

Dont tempt me....

The question is.. which one.. I really like the look of the Pantheon Edition statue, but thats a bit pricey.. I'll probably go the Spartan Edition with 20% from the Ubi store.

I will probably go the Medusa, by the time it gets to DLC time I tend to have lost interest.

I haven't kept with with many up coming games but this is one of the few on my radar!

Bought a new AMD card to replace my dead Nvidia and got a free game bundle with it.
- AC Odyssey
- Starlink
- Strange Brigade

So I may well give this one a try - though I never got into any of the other AC titles I tried on Playstation.

Another single player game with artificial grind designed to temp you into microtransactions to remove the boredom (double xp). 7hr grind before you are high enough level to progress the next part of the story.......no thanks.

Seems a bit of a shame if that is the case. I know AC Origins had micro-transactions but I never found I needed them to proceed. Odyssey seemed to be getting generally positive reviews too but Im glad I held off on this one, too much else to play at the moment anyway.

I recall needing to grind xp in the previous AC games, but not to that extent.

Hard to keep up with the release of AC games, its too soon.

Agreed. It was nice when they had a year off and came back strong with Origins, but then only a year later Odyssey comes along, Ubi back to milking it dry.

Actually sounds like a decent game other than the level gating and resulting grind of bad sidequests. Some say Origins is a better game but Odyssey is more fun. I will play it for sure one day, but even Origins hasnt dropped low enough in price yet.

I could not get into AC: Origins, the world felt empty. I actually liked Unity more than Origins. I think I'm just not a fan of these recent settings, I preferred the city ones.

I've just left the first island (not really a spoiler). I will let you know what I think as it expands in scope.
