After five minutes, we forgot we were playing an Assassin’s Creed game.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins was a clever yet bittersweet departure from the Assassin’s Creed format. Although many enjoyable elements of the original series seem to be left out, the game is a great first edition with a brand new formula. With that said, this game borrows many features from other Ubisoft franchises and we can’t help but feel the originality of the series has been obscured.
The game borrows great ideas from sandbox blockbusters and cleverly streamlines others. While the storyline isn’t captivating, the huge map includes many hours of content extending far beyond the campaign.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins is a great addition to the new generation of open-world sandbox games.
